“Prepare for trouble! And make it double!” DeNA Co., Ltd. has announced that Jesse, James, and Meowth (Team Rocket) have been added to an in-game story event in Pokémon Masters. The event called “Double Trouble” sees players join Team Rocket, as they search for a shiny version of mythical Pokemon, Celebi. Completing this event will allow players to add the poison-type sync pair of Jesse and Arbok to their own teams. It should also be noted that you need to have completed chapter one of the main story to take part in the event. Here’s the game’s trailer:
DeNA also announced that four content updates are also now available in Pokémon Masters. Below are the details from the press release, but it says players can also get more information from the in-game menus. They also say that the dates are subject to change, so keep an eye on them in case things change:
- Legendary Arena Event Featuring Cobalion: In the Legendary Arena, players battle against an extremely powerful Legendary Pokémon using only a limited number of sync pairs. While HP damage to the opponent carries over after each battle, opponents in the Legendary Arena have an exceptionally high HP, requiring players to carefully strategize on how to take down their powerful foe. In this event, players will take on the Legendary Pokémon Cobalion until July 20 at 10:59PM Pacific time for players who have completed Chapter 2 of the Main Story.
- Lucy & Seviper Now Available: The Tech-type sync pair of Lucy & Seviper is available in the sync pair Spotlight Scout until July 23 at 10:59PM Pacific time. This sync pair uses moves like Poison Fang and Sludge Bomb, which can leave their opponent poisoned. Players can combine these moves with this sync pair’s sync move, Pike Queen Poison Fang, which deals more damage when the opponent is poisoned.
- Plumeria & Salazzle Return: The Poison-type sync pair of Plumeria & Salazzle has returned and will be available in the sync pair Spotlight Scout until July 23 at 10:59PM Pacific time.
- Poison-Type Training Event: This in-game event allows players to more easily strengthen their Poison-type sync pairs, as well as exchange items for power-ups to Koga & Crobat’s sync grid. The event is available until July 23 at 10:59PM Pacific time for players who have completed Chapter 1 of the Main Story.
Pokémon Masters is an online, real-time battle and strategy game. It takes place on an artificial island called Pasio. Rather than capture wild Pokémon, trainers team up. Each trainer has one Pokémon, and this pair is called a sync pair. Players will construct teams, which are composed of three sync pairs. Your goal is to compete in the Pokémon Masters League. However, you’ll need to fight five of its leaders to earn badges to qualify for entry into the league. You can find Pokémon Masters on both Android and iOS. You can also learn more about it at the official website.
