  • Staff
The height of summer is bringing a festival of new content to Pokémon Masters EX. As announced in the recent update letter from the game's producers, a brand new story event, Twin Stars Far Apart is making its debut today in Pokémon Masters EX. Launching alongside this event today are a set of brand new Seasonal Scouts, featuring Tate in a new seasonal outfit together with their new sync partner Jirachi. Both the event and seasonal scout will run through to July 16th.

Story Event: Twin Stars Far Apart
In this new story event based on the Japanese festival of Tanabata, Tate and Liza are chosen to be the main stars of Pasio's star festival. When Liza suddenly disappears during the festival, Tate seeks assistance from an unlikely ally to help find her. The event is available in-game now, and will be running until July 16th, at 10:59pm (PDT). By completing battles during this event, players can earn special Summer Ticket A and Summer Ticket A+ items, which can be exchanged for a variety of valuable items including 5★ Scout Tickets, Move Candy and Move Candy Coins, and 5★ Power-Ups. Players can also obtain Gems and Event Medals for completing special missions during the event.

As usual for events of this type, players will have an increased chance of receiving bonus rewards if they take on event battles using teams that feature specific sync pairs. The more of these sync pairs that players place in their lineup, the greater the bonus received. The applicable Sync Pairs and reward rates are as follows:
These bonuses stack additively, so having a team consisting of Tate (Summer 2023) & Jirachi, Hilda (Summer 2022) & Grapploct, and Gloria (Summer 2021) & Inteleon would grant a combined +140% (x2.4) rewards.

Log-in Bonus
This event includes a log-in bonus over 14 days. Players can receive these bonuses up until July 16th at 10:59pm (PDT), so even if you're a couple of days late starting the event you'll still have the chance to receive all of the available gifts.
