Type Villain event
First run December 27, 2021 to January 13, 2022
Featured sync pairs Sygna Suit Cynthia (Renegade) and Giratina

Galactic Nightmare (Japanese: 動きだす銀河の影) was a villain event in Pokémon Masters EX. It served as a prelude to the Sinnoh chapter of the Villain Arc, featuring battles against Team Galactic. It was one of the Sinnoh villain events, the others being Dreams of the Void and Galactic Awakening.

The "Sygna Suit Cynthia Master Fair Scout" gave players an increased chance of recruiting Sygna Suit Cynthia (Renegade) and Giratina from the beginning of the event to February 28, 2022.

During this event, players could earn Event Vouchers C from battles against Team Galactic that could be redeemed in the shop for rewards. Obtaining 1,000 vouchers would unlock the story area A Perfect World. All battles could be challenged an unlimited number of times except Daily Extreme Battle 1, which could only be challenged once per day.

Plot

The player and Cynthia are investigating replica ruins on Pasio when they are ambushed by a group of Team Galactic Grunts who want to steal their Pokémon. They threaten the player, and despite Cynthia telling them the player isn't her assistant, the grunts refuse to let them go without a battle.

After the grunts are defeated, they decide to retreat, and Cynthia thanks the player for their help, wondering if those were the only members of Team Galactic here on Pasio. Meanwhile, Cyrus thinks to himself that he hasn't given up on his goal of creating a new, perfect world without spirit, revealing that Team Galactic has created a hideout on Pasio for Cyrus, his commanders, and his grunts.

Cynthia I have to do something about this.
Cynthia Have you seen people in strange outfits recently? Something that looks a bit out of this world?
I may need your help. If you don't mind, please lend me your strength when the time comes.


  • Galactic Visitors
Name Text
(Cynthia and the player at the ruins)
Cynthia Thanks for helping me with my research, <player>!
I wasn't exactly sure what about these replica ruins here on Pasio caught Giratina's attention...
But thanks to you, I think I'm starting to understand it a bit.
??? Look what I've found! It's the Champion of Sinnoh!
(Team Galactic grunts appear)
Team Galactic Grunt (1) Now, now, now, now, now!
Team Galactic Grunt (2) Hand over all your Pokémon! For free, naturally.
Cynthia Hm? Oh, you must be members of Team Galactic.
You really think we'll just comply with that nonsense you're spewing?
What are you trying to accomplish? I won't allow you to do anything bad around here.
Team Galactic Grunt (1) Oh, Champion... Must you be so difficult?
Team Galactic Grunt (2) If you just listen to us, we'll refrain from causing massive damage to you assistant.
Cynthia <player> isn't actually my assistant...
But they don't seem to care, no matter what we say.
Sorry, but could you help me out a bit longer, <player>?
Let's make them understand us with a battle! We'll teach them a lesson.
(Cynthia and the player battle the Team Galactic grunts)
Team Galactic Grunt (3) We will take everything that can be taken and eliminate everything that is not needed! That is Team Galactic's policy!
Everything we do is for Master Cyrus! We'll make use of all your Pokémon!
Cynthia ... ... ...


  • A Perfect World
Name Text
Team Galactic Grunt (1) How is this even possible? Ganging up on that weak-looking king should've been perfect!
Team Galactic Grunt (2) This won't do... This mission is a failure.
Team Galactic Grunt (3) You leave us no option. We will retreat for now.
We shall do so because Team Galactic is benevolent to all.
(The grunts leave)
Cynthia Those people are always such a mystery.
Their clothes are unique, almost like they're aliens from another world.
Thanks for helping me out again, <player>.
But that does make me wonder...
Were those the only members of Team Galactic on Pasio?
If not...
... ... ...
Oh, sorry. I was thinking about something.
I'll do my best to prepare for a worst-case scenario.
I guess it's time to head back. Shall we?
(Transition to Cyrus)
Cyrus (Team Galactic members have come to Pasio?)
(Yes... I still have my ideals for creating a new world.)
(The ultimate world. A world of complete perfection.)
(Nothing so vague and incomplete as spirit can remain.)
(After all, a twisted world full of incomplete human spirit...)
(That would be an intolerable nightmare indeed.)

Trivia

  • Galactic Nightmare was the only villain event:
    • to not give a strength bonus to any sync pairs.
    • to not feature a Battle Challenge.
    • to not award any medals.
    • to have an associated event conversation in the Pokémon Center.
    • to include multiple story areas.
    • to never receive a rerun.
  • Galactic Nightmare and Looming Shadow of Kanto were the only two villain events to contain area info for non-battle stages.
    • They were also the only two villain events to be classified as a villain event prelude (Japanese: 悪の組織イベント 序章) at their debut, rather than just a villain event.
