New series of gameplay trailers showcase the game’s world and major features, such as the battle and progression systems and ability to evolve Pokémon
TOKYO — July 23, 2019 — DeNA Co., Ltd., in partnership with The Pokémon Company, began opening pre-registration today for Pokémon Masters on Google Play and the App Store. Pokémon Masters is a strategy and battling game where players form teams of sync pairs (the combination of a Trainer and their partner Pokémon) to engage in 3-on-3 real-time battles against AI opponents. The game takes place in an all-new location – the island of Pasio, where Trainers and their partner Pokémon from every known Pokémon region will gather to compete. Players who pre-register for the game will receive a notification when it launches later this summer.
