  • New Sync Pair Spotlight Scout! Players can add the Steel-type sync pair of Gloria & Zacian via the sync pair spotlight scout, available now until December 20 at 9:59 p.m. Pacific time. This sync pair can deploy moves like Behemoth Blade, an extremely powerful attack that consumes four out of a possible six units of the move gauge. Savvy players can strategize by using this resource-intensive move in conjunction with Move Gauge Boost, which replenishes the move gauge.
  • Introducing “Battle Buffet Bash.” Players will also be able to interact with Gloria & Zacian in an in-game event titled “Battle Buffet Bash,” where they’ll engage in Pokémon battles at this culinary-themed festival on Pasio. In this event, players can earn in-game rewards and Prestige Points for completing battles. Players that earn over 100,000 Prestige Points during the event period, available now until December 6 at 9:59 p.m. Pacific time, will be entered in a ranking with other players around the world, with in-game rewards distributed according to player rank.
  • 3,000 Gem Log-in Bonus. To commemorate the arrival of Gloria & Zacian, a gift of 3,000 Gems will be distributed to all players who log-in to the game from now until December 23 at 9:59 p.m. Pacific Time. A separate log-in bonus called the “Make Way for Gloria Log-In Bonus”, available now until December 20 at 9:59 p.m. Pacific time, will reward players that log-in to the game daily with up to 120 5★ Scout Tickets, enough to guarantee that players can add up to four 5★ sync pairs to their teams.
