Special sync pair event

A special sync pair event[note 1] (Japanese: 特別バディーズイベント Special Buddies Event) is a type of limited-time event in Pokémon Masters EX. These events allow players to team up with a certain sync pair for free. In addition, an event exchange is available in the shop with items that can be used to maximize the featured sync pair's move level, increase their potential to 5★, and fill out their sync grid.

The first event introduced with this structure, Bugsy & Scyther, is instead called a Sync Pair-Up Event (Japanese: バディーズ加入イベント Buddies Join Event).

Bugsy & Scyther

This event ran from July 22 to August 5, 2021. It allowed players to recruit Bugsy & Scyther.

Battles rewarded players with Event Vouchers N, which could be redeemed in the shop for items to power up Bugsy & Scyther. Extra Event Vouchers were automatically exchanged with coins once the event was finished.

This event reran from March 23 to April 6, 2024. Event Voucher N was replaced with Event Voucher U, and exchanges were available in the shop to convert Bugsy & Scyther's Custom ★ Power-Ups and Sync Orbs into standard 4★ Power-Ups and Co-op Sync Orbs for players who had already fully upgraded this sync pair.

Area info

During the first run, this story area played automatically upon log-in and could not be replayed. It was not given a name or completion rewards until the second run.

  • Bugsy's Prized Bug-Type Pokémon!
Name Text
(Pokémon Center; Bugsy notices the player and waves)
Bugsy Oh! Hi there, <player>! Perfect timing!
I know it's sudden, but would you have a Pokémon battle with me?
My partner Pokémon will be this Scyther! Just like Beedrill, he's one of my prized Bug-type Pokémon!
(Scyther cries out)
Bugsy We were just practicing our teamwork as a sync pair, but it looks like he's interested in joining your team, too!
If we can show you a good battle, would you let us join your team?
You will battle us, won't you? It'd be great if you could!
(Scyther cries out happily)

  • The Tomboyish Mermaid
Name Text
(Pokémon Center; Misty is wearing her swimsuit and stretching while Leaf admires Misty's Psyduck)
Misty Oh! Hi, <player>! Off to do some training?
(Leaf notices the player and waves)
Misty Me and Psyduck just got back from a quick swim!
Leaf No wonder they call you the Tomboyish Mermaid. You're always in the water!
I think you were wearing that same swimsuit when we battled at your Gym in Kanto, right? That was an unexpected surprise!
Come to think of it, I don't remember you battling with this Psyduck back then...
(Psyduck looks at Leaf, puzzled)
Misty True! I don't think he was quite ready for Gym battling when you came to visit.
But since coming to Pasio, I've trained him up to be just as strong as Starmie and the others!
Leaf Ooh, I'll have to keep an eye on him, then! I'm excited to see what you two can do!
Misty Now that we're a sync pair, you can see it firsthand!
(Psyduck cries out and holds its head)

Blue Yo, <player>! So you made it.
Did you want to meet my Arcanine, too?
I raised him from a Growlithe back in my Kanto days. Isn't he something?
He's on a whole 'nother level compared to all the other Arcanine out there.
(Arcanine cries out happily)
Blaine Yes indeed. Look at this fur... And he's got such sturdy legs...
As a Fire-type Gym Leader, I must admit I'm impressed!
Blue Heheh! Right? And to be honest...
I've incorporated what I learned from my battle at Cinnabar Gym into training this guy!
Blaine Oh? So you've taken some of my battle tactics and made them your own?!
I see why so many people are drawn to you, just like Arcanine.
Blue Y'know, I'm gonna start battling as a sync pair with Arcanine!
If we end up on the same team, all you gotta do is leave it to us!
We'll show you a battle just as hot as anything Red's Charizard can do!

  • Team Rocket's Ambition
Name Text
(Team Rocket's hideout; Giovanni is wearing his classic outfit)
Giovanni My loyal followers...
First, I would like to thank you for responding to my call and joining me here on Pasio.
I am pleased to have this opportunity to work with you all.
As you may know, Pasio is a place overflowing with people, goods, and Pokémon.
Presented with such an opportunity, what course of action should our organization take? Some may find themselves losing sight of our goals.
So, let us review what our ambitions as Team Rocket are.
In an attempt to return to my roots, I donned my old clothes and gave this some thought.
The answer is simple: we must use money to claim more power.
Of course, this will be accomplished by utilizing the power of Pokémon.
(Cut to Archer)
Giovanni Controlling the world and executing our schemes are only steps towards achieving our goal.
(Cut to Ariana)
Giovanni Pokémon with immense power... Rare Pokémon... They will undoubtedly be useful.
(Cut to the Team Rocket Grunts that Giovanni is addressing)
Giovanni But we should not focus solely on them. I want you all to broaden your horizons.
(Back to Giovanni)
Giovanni Let this Persian be a prime example of that.
(Giovanni's Persian cries out)
Giovanni Persian are very prideful Pokémon. To have a Persian accept you is proof that you are an exceptional Trainer.
Proving your superiority is standard practice in business. Any Pokémon can be useful as long as you handle it well.
However, Persian and I still have much to learn about battling on Pasio.
As your superior, I plan to hone my skills in a way that will uphold our reputation.
That is all. I expect great things from all of you.
(The grunts cheer)

  • A Mysterious Horse Pokémon
Name Text
(Snowy village)
<player> found Victor with a dark, mysterious Pokémon in a snowy landscape.
Victor Who's that Pokémon?: Oh, <player>. Well, actually...
What are you doing?: Hey, <player>!
I was just showing Sonia my Spectrier! It's my new partner Pokémon.
It came to Pasio from somewhere else and was running amok. I managed to calm it down somehow.
Sonia We were able to figure out its name, but there's something I'm curious about...
(Fade to Leon's Calyrex)
Sonia You know how Leon's Pokémon, Calyrex, rides a white horse Pokémon?
I was wondering if this Pokémon is connected somehow, and then I remembered!
(Back to the snowy village)
Sonia Back when I was researching other Pokémon in the Crown Tundra, I heard a song from an elderly woman living in a village.
It's called "Song of the King's Steed"!
It goes like this...
(Fade to Leon's Calyrex)
Sonia "Iceroot Carrots, cold as ice. ♪"
"Munched all up by the bully in white. ♪"
(Back to the snowy village, focused on Victor's Spectrier)
Sonia "Shaderoot Carrots, dark as doom. ♪"
"Crunched by the bully with a ghostly gloom. ♪"
Get it?
Victor So the "bully in white" is the Pokémon that Leon's Calyrex rides on...
and the "bully with a ghostly gloom" must be talking about Spectrier!
Sonia Exactly!
(Victor looks at Spectrier)
Victor Do you love Shaderoot Carrots, then?
(Spectrier whinnies)
Victor It seems like it'd be difficult to find vegetables from the Crown Tundra on Pasio...
But I'll definitely find you some Shaderoot Carrots one of these days!

Is it happy?: No... I have a feeling it still wants to blow off some steam.
Is it angry?: Nah, I think it just wants to cut loose right now rather than eat carrots.
So let's battle right now, Sonia!
Sonia Huh?! A battle with me?! W-well, sure, I guess...
OK! Bring it on!
(Spectrier whinnies)

Name Text
(Pokémon Center; a male and female Poké Kid are playing with their partners, Eevee and Pikachu; their partners notice the player, and the Poké Kids turn around in surprise)
Eve Oh, <player>...
I mean... Vee! Eevee!
??? Pika!
Eve You sound just like 'em!: Of course we do! We're the two best Pokémon cry imitators in Galar!
Are you two friends?: Yeah! We're Poké Kid friends from Galar!
(The player focuses on the male Poké Kid)
Petey Nice to meet you! I'm Petey!
I'm a Poké Kid who really loves Pikachu!
Wait... Are you partners with a Pikachu, <player>?!
I wanna see it! Please, could you show it to me? Pleeease?
(The player nods)
Petey Yaaay!
(The player sends out their Pikachu, and it walks up to the Poké Kids)
Petey Hmm, I see. Wow...
Even with those cute movements, you can tell he's calm and collected underneath... It's obvious that he's really strong!
Eve Great observation!
Petey If I keep observing this Pikachu, maybe I can become EXACTLY like a Pikachu...!
Wanna watch him up close for a while?: Can I?! Thank you!
Then let's go have a Pokémon battle! I wanna see how he fights!

Wanna go battle together?: You mean I can watch him up close for a while?!
(The player nods)
Eve That's so great, Petey!
Petey Yeah!
Let's be friends from now on, <player>!
(Petey's Pikachu cheers)


Sweet and Fancy

This event ran from February 14 to 28, 2024. It allowed players to recruit Scottie/Bettie & Alcremie.

Battles rewarded players with Whipped Cream Cakes, which could be redeemed in the shop for items to power up sync pairs and one Event Sync Pair Voucher. The Event Sync Pair Voucher could be redeemed in the shop for a sync pair formed between the player character and one of six different Alcremie, each of which had a different flavor of cream and sweet. Players could only team up with one Alcremie; however, each sync pair was functionally identical, allowing players to choose solely based on the Alcremie's decorations.

If the player did not redeem their Event Sync Pair Voucher, it was automatically exchanged with coins once the event was finished. Extra Whipped Cream Cakes were also automatically exchanged.

(Forest, set up for a party; Dawn, Marnie, Candice, Victor, and Mallow are lined up behind seven Alcremie, all wearing their Palentine's outfits; Candice waves to the player, then Victor waves)
Victor Hey! Welcome, <player>!
Marnie This Palentine's Day, we have a sweet announcement to make!
Dawn 'Now, if you take a look at the Alcremie's decorations...
Candice We're gonna gift everyone the exact same Sweets, specially made by us!
(The player looks at all the Alcremie as they cheer)
Mallow There are a whole bunch of different designs, so you can pick what you like!
Victor If you ever befriend a Milcery, you should give it a Sweet. That'll make it happy!
Candice Oh, really?
Victor When a Milcery holds a Sweet and evolves into Alcremie...
its appearance will change, just like the ones here!
Mallow They're really fascinating Pokémon, huh!
Victor But after it evolves, you can't swap its Sweet for a different one to change its appearance...
So, when you give Milcery a Sweet, you better think carefully!
Marnie Each person only gets one Sweet from us, too...
Dawn Why don't you play with these Alcremie and decide which one you like the most?
Candice Pokémon, fashion, desserts—it's all about focus!
(Dawn, Marnie, Candice, Victor, and Mallow make excited poses)

  • Aura-Driven Sync Pairs
Name Text
(Outside the mines)
<player> and Roark were looking for a good place for Rock-type Pokemon to train...
Roark Nice! Somewhere around here looks good—
(A rumbling sound catches Roark's attention, and he turns towards it; a handful of boulders are broken, revealing Riley and Lucario behind them)
Roark Riley?!
(Riley and Lucario approach Roark)
Riley Hey. It's been a while, Roark.
I was in the middle of training...did I surprise you?
Lucario has been oddly into it, maybe because he felt your auras.
Roark I didn't know you were here on Pasio! When did that happen?
Riley Yeah, I was led here by a mysterious power...
(Riley notices the player)
Riley I see. So you're <player>.
You've got a nice aura.
I'm Riley. I'm a Trainer, and yes, it is a bit odd that I'm always training in mines.

Nice to meet you!: Nice to meet you too. I've heard about you.
N-nice to meet you...: Hmm, you seem a bit down.
Are you eating a balanced diet? Make sure you don't miss any nutrients!
Roark Riley's a friend of my dad's.
Riley's such a good Trainer that my dad asked him to be a Gym Leader.
Riley Haha, I'm not that good.
I'm planning to continue training with Lucario as a sync pair on Pasio.
There may be times when I need help, so I'll be counting on you two.
Roark Sure thing!
No better time than the present, right?
Riley Right. Roark, <player>—let's start training!


Trivia

  • The Sync Pair-Up Event Bugsy & Scyther has a few minor differences from special sync pair events:
    • On its first run, its introductory story area could not be replayed. As a result, players had to complete the first battle in the event to team up with the featured sync pair.
    • It featured battles against the featured sync pair, and there was a different set of opponents for the final battle.
    • It had a gap of 976 days from the start of its initial run to the start of its second run, while every special sync pair event that has been rerun received its second run in less than a year.
  • Victor & Spectrier was the only special sync pair event to have cap-unlock drinks available in the shop.
  • Petey & Pikachu was the only special sync pair event to:
    • allow players to team up with a sync pair with an initial potential of 3★.
    • allow players to team up with a character based on a generic Trainer class.
    • have duplicate copies of the featured sync pair cost 200 vouchers apiece.
  • Sweet and Fancy was the only special sync pair event to:
    • allow players to team up with a sync pair formed by Scottie/Bettie.
    • give players an option for what sync pair to team up with.
    • use an item other than a generic voucher as the exchange currency.
    • not have sync pair-specific items available in the shop.
    • not have enough materials to fully grid the featured sync pair available in the shop. Players could exchange for up to 750 co-op sync orbs, which is only equivalent to 75 sync pair-specific sync orbs.
  • Riley & Lucario was the only special sync pair event to allow players to team up with a character introduced in the core series games that was not previously available in the game.
  • The three Kanto sync pairs that can be teamed up with in special sync pair events are all formed with Pokémon whose National Pokédex number is between 50 and 60.
