Pasio (Japanese: パシオ Pasio) is the setting of Pokémon Masters EX. It is an artificial island located in the Pokémon world and is home to the Pokémon Masters League tournament. It was constructed by Lear. The concept of Pasio is "A paradise where humans and Pokémon coexist."


Pasio is home to a variety of environments, including towns, forests, glaciers, volcanoes, mountains, caves, and beaches. Rock and soil were brought in from other regions to build up the mountains on Pasio, so rare stones like geodes can be found in the mountains.

No wild Pokémon are supposed to reside on this island, only Trainers and their sync partners. However, wild Pokémon—especially Legendary and Mythical Pokémon—are sometimes brought to the island via Hoopa's rings. Most of these eventually form a sync pair with a Trainer, but Legendary Arena opponents do not. Some wild Pokémon also appear on Pasio through space-time distortions, but they disappear once the distortion passes, unless caught by a Trainer before that happens.

The seabed around Pasio is the only known place where sync stones can be found from. It also contains a great deal of natural energy, similar to the energy that Kyogre and Groudon fought over in Hoenn long ago.

Recently, mysterious stones, later dubbed sync stones ultimate, have begun to be found by Trainers all over Pasio. While the exact origin of these stones is unknown, they appear to have some connection to Arceus.

Notable locations

The largest city on Pasio is Centra City. It is home to a Pokémon Center with a shop and a café.

Lear owns a villa on Pasio called the Battle Villa, where he lives with Rachel and Sawyer. It also serves as a battle facility where Trainers can battle their way through the villa's halls.

Pasio is home to several battle arenas, the most prominent of which is the Champion Stadium. The final rounds of the PML take place in this stadium. Another arena, simply known as the Pasio arena, is also sometimes used for tournaments. Individuals can borrow this arena to hold Pokémon battles.

The Trainer Lodge is a place where Trainers can gather and interact with one another.

By the time of the Villain Arc, most villainous teams have built at least one hideout or base of operations somewhere on Pasio.
