Pokémon Masters EX Adds Kanto Region Sync Pairs

TOKYO—September 16, 2021—DeNA Co., Ltd., in partnership with The Pokémon Company, has announced that two new sync pairs from the Kanto region are coming to Pokémon Masters EX – Red & Snorlax and Blue (Classic) & Aerodactyl.  

Red & Snorlax are a Normal and Fighting-type sync pair that can Dynamax, which is the ability for a Pokémon to drastically increase its size during battle and receive a boost to their power. In Pokémon Masters EX, a sync pair can Dynamax one time per battle and unleash a powerful move called a max move. Red & Snorlax can unleash one of two max moves: G-Max Replenish provides supporting effects while Max Knuckle deals major damage to a single opponent. Red & Snorlax can be added to players’ teams via the Red Poké Fair Scout, available from now until October 29 at 10:59 p.m. Pacific Time.  

Blue (Classic) & Aerodactyl are a Rock-type sync pair that has the power to mega-evolve into Mega Aerodactyl after using their sync move. This sync pair’s moves and passive skills change after mega-evolving, allowing them to use the powerful attack Double-Edge without taking any recoil damage. Blue (Classic) & Aerodactyl will be available to add to players’ teams via the Blue Poké Fair Scout, available from September 17 at 11:00 p.m. Pacific Time until October 29 at 10:59 p.m. Pacific Time. 

A new trailer showcasing Red & Snorlax and Blue (Classic) & Aerodactyl and hinting at future Main Story updates can be found here on the official Pokémon Masters EX YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/Vla1rKA0jZg
