Pasio Special Stadium - Vs Champion Red
The Pasio Special Stadium is a special, limited-time event in the Champion Stadium. It runs concurrently with the normal Champion Stadium challenges. During the event, players are challenged to battle against a mix of Elite Four and a Champion from different regions, with all five battles sharing one featured type weakness. In this latest Pasio Special Stadium, which will run until September 14th, at 10:59pm (PDT), players will challenge a team comprised of Koga, Grimsley, Glacia, and Molayne, lead by the recently released Champion Red, with all five of these trainers sharing the same Fire-type weakness.
The usual rules apply to the Pasio Special Stadium as to the normal Stadium with regards to restricting sync pairs after they are used to win a battle, special parameters, and the use of Master Mode options, although the Master Mode point rewards differ from in the normal Stadium.
To participate in the Champion Stadium, Trainers must have completed Main Story Chapter 10: A Reason to Battle (Normal) in single-player. To attempt the Pasio Special Stadium, players must also have completed the Champion Stadium Kanto Challenge on Normal difficulty. The Normal difficulty of the Kanto Challenge is always available, regardless of the current regional rotation of the Champion Stadium.

Leaf (Champion) & Moltres are a Fire-type Tech Sync Pair, whose boiling attacks weaken their opponent's resistance to Fire-type Moves along with their general stats. One of the pair's Passive Skills gives them the ability to reduce their opponent's Fire Type Rebuff by one rank the first time they use a Status Move, as well as the first time they use their Sync Move. Another Passive Skill meanwhile improves the effects of Leer, resulting in the move reducing Attack, Sp. Atk, and Sp. Def by one stat rank in addition to the usual reduction to Defense. In combination with their Fiery Wings Flare Blitz Buddy Move, which doubles the amount of lowered stats, they can truly debilitate the opposition. This Buddy Move has an additional effect of making the weather Sunny the first time it is used, setting off yet another Passive Skill, which prevents allies from being inflicted with any status conditions, flinching, becoming confused, or becoming trapped, making them a powerhouse on both attack and defense. It's little wonder with a move like this that their EX Role is Support! More information about this sync pair can be found in the preview video posted to the official Pokémon Masters EX YouTube channel, and on Bulbapedia.
