Gears in Pokémon Masters

A gear is an item in Pokémon Masters that can be equipped to a player's team to boost the stats of sync pairs. Gears can be obtained by completing Main Story Co-op battles (Very Hard and Super Hard modes) and EX-Challenges in the Training area. A specific gear is guaranteed as a first-time reward with these stages, and can thereafter be obtained as random battle rewards after repeating these stages.

To unlock gears, the player must first complete Chapter 18: Team Unova in both Single and Co-op (Hard) mode to unlock the Get Stronger with Gear! battle in the Training area. After completing all these, Professor Bellis will reward the player with a 1★ Electric Bracelet.

Mechanics

Gears come in three forms, Bracelets, which raise Attack, Bandannas, which raise Special Attack, and Pins, which raise HP. Only one of each can be equipped to a team at a time. Gears also have a specific type and provide a full boost for Pokémon in the team with the same type, while other Pokémon will receive only half the boost (rounded down to nearest integer).

Stat Boost (same type) Boost (other types)
1★ gear 2★ gear 1★ gear 2★ gear
HP +11 +22 +5 +11
Attack +6 +12 +3 +6
Sp. Atk +6 +12 +3 +6

A gear's level can be upgraded to enhance the boost the gear provides. For each increase in gear level, the stat boost is increased by one for 1★ gears and two for 2★ gears. Initially, the gear level is capped at Lv. 3. The level cap can be unlocked by exchanging duplicate copies of the same gear. Up to four gears can be exchanged to increase the level cap to Lv. 15.

Gears are upgraded using Cloths of the respective type, as well as with Upgrade Threads, Scissors, and Needles which are used to upgrade Bracelets, Bandannas, and Pins respectively.
