Pokemon Masters: New trailer features co-op, Pokemon Masters League, and more

Today, DeNA Co., Ltd.and The Pokémon Company revealed more gameplay content and features for Pokémon Masters in a new trailer for Pokémon Masters, a real-time strategy and battling game for compatible Android and iOS devices that is planned to release in Summer 2019.
In the trailer, which can be viewed on The Pokémon Company’s official YouTube channel (, fans can learn more about:

  • Cooperative Play – Join two players from around the world for three-player co-op against AI opponents. Work together to unleash the unity attack, a special coordinated attack from all three sync pairs (a sync pair is the combination of a Trainer and their partner Pokémon).
  • 3-on-3 Real-Time Battling System – Witness the thrill of the 3-on-3 real-time battling system. The trailer offers a look at Trainers teaming up with their partner Pokémon to unleash powerful sync moves.
  • Pokémon Masters League – Compete in the Pokémon Masters League tournament, which features 3-on-3 battles that take place only on the artificial island of Pasio. In this tournament, Gym Leaders, Elite Four members, Champions, and all-stars from every region of the Pokémon world have formed sync pair teams. Players will battle these teams all across Pasio to obtain badges and become champion of the Pokémon Masters League.
  • Sygna Suits(not pictured in trailer) – Special outfits that Trainers can wear into battle. When Trainers wear a Sygna Suit, their partner Pokémon changes to match. For example, when Brock dons his Sygna Suit, he teams up with Tyranitar instead of Onix.

  1. The new characters (Lear, Sawyer, Rachel, and Paulo) are excellent. I’d love to see them in SWSH. I think Sawyer is the most muscular character in any pokemon game thusfar lol. Also the old characters look excellent in full 3D.

    I’d take Paulo over Hop any day. Hop just looks like Hau 2.0, while Paulo’s got a hint of that smug “thinks he’s better than you” look, which is really what in a rival character.

    I hope SWSH has a battle facility with old trainers. That’d be fantastic. The battle tree in SM did it so its not too unrealistic, although seeing the sheer magnitude of characters like in Pokemon Masters is unlikely. A global trainer battle facility would make a great addition to SWSH’s Battle Frontier though :)

    Also hoping SWSH has more expressive animations like this
    Sun and Moon was a step in the right direction, but it needs more unique body language animations like in this screencap. Stuff like this really helps bring out the personality of characters, so hopefully we get more of it moving forward.

    I’m not a big fan of phone games, but this looks excellent, and makes me very excited to see more of how the characters look and act in SWSH.

  2. I would play this game over Sword and Shield….

    It’s just… Microtransactions…

    But then again… Sword and Shield is asking us to pay for DLC
