DeNa had just released a video announcement in commemoration of their mobile game – Pokemon Masters’ one year anniversary.
In the video, Yu Sasaki the Producer of Pokemon Masters and Tetsuya Iguchi the Operations Producer had mentioned the date for the scheduled One Year Anniversary update would be available on 27th August.
– One Year Anniversary Update –
- Pokemon Masters rename
The first announcement they made in the video is a rename of the app. Yu Sasaki said that this One Year Anniversary update is the biggest update up until this point and to commemorate that, the Pokemon Master team had renamed the brand to be title “Pokemon Masters EX”.
The anniversary update video will be focusing on these two topics:
– 6 Star Ex Sync Pairs –
In this first topic, the Pokemon Masters team had announced a new feature that allows 5 Star units to raise up their potential to the new 6 Star rarity. The new 6 Star rarity will strengthen a unit as well as unlocking a different colored outfit.
A limited amount of sync pairs will able to be raised to 6 Star EX when this update releases, but the first sync pair will be featuring Pokemon Trainer Red.
Red’s new 6 Star EX showcases Red in a different color scheme than his usual red theme. It is said that his new EX outfit is inspired by his partner Mega Charizard X. Players are also free to change between the outfits at any given time if they prefer the original design.
– Champion Stadium –
This Champion Stadium is a new feature where players face up against challenging foes in a 5 consecutive 3-on-3 battle format. The first Champion Stadium will be featuring the Kanto Pokemon League.
Sync Pairs that have participated in a battle cannot join the remaining battles so plan out your sync pairs wisely!
The Champion Stadium features two difficulties which is Normal and Hard mode. In Hard mode, the weakness typing of your opponents will change weekly and players are able to challenge these battles again to collect more items that are needed to increase a sync pair’s potential.
The following shows the advantage types over the first group of Hard Mode Champion Stadium battles:
- Grass – Lorelei
- Water – Bruno
- Ghost – Agatha
- Dragon – Lance
- Fire – Blue
The Pokemon Masters team had also mentioned that other regions of the Champion Stadium are planned too so stay tuned for future updates.

– Events During One Year Anniversary Update –
The training with legends event will showcase a solo event against other powerful sync pairs in Pasio. Although there isn’t much that was said in regards to this event so we just have to keep updated.
