Father or Foe (Japanese: 黒白の親子が求めた解) was the seventh legendary event in Pokémon Masters EX. It was focused on the sync pair Ghetsis & Kyurem. This pair could be teamed up with by completing the final story area of the event, And Yet....

During this event, players could earn Legendary Prize Coins from battles that could be used to draw items from a prize box pool. All battles could be challenged an unlimited number of times except Challenge Ghetsis: Part 5, which could only be challenged once per day. If the grand prize was drawn from the prize box, players could advance to the next prize pool. Extra Prize Coins were automatically exchanged with coins once the event was finished.

The player could battle using N & Zekrom or Alder & Volcarona to earn +0.6× bonus Prize Coins; Sygna Suit Elesa & Rotom, Elesa & Zebstrika, or Burgh & Leavanny to earn +0.4× bonus Prize Coins; and Ghetsis & Kyurem, Skyla & Swanna, Iris & Haxorus, or Cheren & Stoutland to earn +0.2× bonus Prize Coins.

This event featured a pair of challenging battles against Team Break that did not cost any stamina to play. Players could complete event missions by clearing these areas with teams using various theme skills, earning medals and other rewards.

In addition, players could earn a medal for completing all the story areas in the event.

This story was added to Legendary Adventures on January 4, 2022.

First run

The event first ran from May 4 to 20, 2021. The "N Poké Fair Scout" gave players an increased chance of recruiting N & Zekrom from April 22, 2021 to the end of the event, and the "Alder Poké Fair Scout" gave players an increased chance of recruiting Alder & Volcarona for the duration of the event.

In this run, players could earn Legendary Prize Coins H from battles. All battles were available from the start except Challenge Team Break: Part 1, which was only unlocked after completing Challenge Ghetsis: Part 5, and Challenge Team Break: Part 2, which was only unlocked after completing Challenge Team Break: Part 1. These battles rewarded players with a 3★ Support Move Candy and a 4★ Tech Move Candy, respectively.

The grand prizes in the prize box included area info for event story areas, sync orbs for Ghetsis & Kyurem, 5★ Scout Tickets, Custom ★ Power-Ups for Ghetsis & Kyurem, 5★ Power-Ups, a Strike Move Candy Coin, and a Tech Move Candy Coin.

Event missions awarded players with Gems for completing any of the battles against Ghetsis a certain number of times, excluding Challenge Ghetsis: Part 5. Completing Challenge Team Break: Part 2 with a team consisting of 3 Unova sync pairs would reward players with a Support Move Candy Coin.

Second run

The event reran from August 19 to September 16, 2021. In this run, the structure of the event was altered. Rather than pulling area info from the prize box, players alternated between completing story areas and completing event battles until all area info for the event had been unlocked. Challenge Team Break: Part 1 was now unlocked after completing And Yet..., and Challenge Team Break: Part 2 now awarded a 4★ Strike Move Candy.

Players could earn Legendary Prize Coins O from battles, with these being given as battle rewards in addition to completion rewards. The grand prizes in the prize box included 3★ Level-Up Manuals, co-op sync orbs, 5★ Scout Tickets, Custom ★ Power-Ups for Ghetsis & Kyurem, and a Tech Move Candy Coin. C

Completing Challenge Ghetsis: Part 5 now counted towards the missions requiring players to complete a certain number of battles against Ghetsis. Completing Challenge Team Break: Part 2 with a team consisting of 3 Unova sync pairs would reward players with a Strike Move Candy Coin.

If the player had already raised Ghetsis & Kyurem to maximum potential, exchanges were available in the shop to convert their Custom ★ Power-Ups into 5★ Power-Ups or 3★ Power-Ups.
