Description The Galar Champion, known as the unbeatable Leon, is a superstar who boasts unprecedented charisma and popularity. Rumor has it he is quite bad with directions.

Leon (Japanese: ダンデ Dande) is a Pokémon Trainer in Pokémon Masters EX, based on the character of the same name in the core series games. He forms a sync pair with Charizard, which is capable of Gigantamaxing. The sync pair can be obtained through a Master Fair sync pair scout, and was first available on February 26, 2021. The pair's potential can be upgraded to Masters EX star.png 6★ EX from when the pair was first released, which unlocks Leon's EX Style.

Leon is also available in his sygna suit, partnered alongside Eternatus, which is capable of Eternamaxing. The sync pair can be obtained through a Poké Fair sync pair scout, and was first available on August 12, 2021. This pair is also capable of being upgraded to Masters EX star.png 6★ EX from when the pair was first released.

Leon is also available in his holiday attire, partnered alongside Ice Rider Calyrex. The sync pair can be obtained through a Seasonal sync pair scout, and was first available on December 16, 2021. This pair is also capable of being upgraded to Masters EX star.png 6★ EX from when the pair was first released.

Leon is also available in his Battle Tower attire, forming a sync pair with his Dragapult, which is capable of Dynamaxing. This pair can be obtained through a Poké Fair scout beginning on July 31, 2023. This pair can also be raised to Masters EX star.png 6★ EX since it first released.
