Flint's sync grid

Sync Grid (Japanese: バディストーンボード Buddy Stone Board) is a feature in Pokémon Masters introduced in version 1.5.5 that allows the player to strengthen sync pairs in unique ways. The Sync Grid consists of hexagonal tiles, with each tile unlocking a grid skill. Each grid skill offers different enhancements, such as raising stats, enhancing moves and unlocking passive skills.

To activate a tile, the player must use a certain number of sync orbs (Japanese: バディドロップ Buddy Drop) which are specific to the sync pair. Only tiles adjacent to another activated tile can be activated. Some tiles may have additional requirements. For example, certain tiles will require a certain sync move level before the tile can be activated.

Except for the basic grid skills surrounding the sync stone, activating tiles require a certain amount of energy. There is a maximum energy of 60 which means the player will be unable to unlock the entire Sync Grid for a sync pair. The Sync Grid can be reset using coins to deactivate all tiles and regain all energy. The first reset for each sync pair is free, and subsequent resets will cost 1,000 coins for each tile.

Main Story Chapter 11 must be completed to unlock the Sync Grid feature.

Sync orbs

There are two types of sync orbs.

Sync orbs are exclusive to each sync pair. Prior to version 1.9.0, sync pair-specific sync orbs were obtained when a sync move was used during a single player battle when the "Sync orb chance!" message appeared before the battle. If successful, the player was rewarded with 5 sync orbs specific to the sync pair who used the sync move. The odds of a sync orb chance increased each time the player won a battle. The odds returned to their initial state after obtaining a sync orb and subsequently increased at a lower rate. These chances were reset when the date changed. These sync orbs are currently not available except through converting co-op sync orbs to sync pair-specific sync orbs, or by resetting a Sync Grid to convert all tiles to sync orbs.

Co-op sync orbs are orbs which can be used on any sync pair's Sync Grid. 10 co-op sync orbs can be exchanged for one sync pair-specific sync orb on the Sync Grid menu. These are obtained after defeating Super Hard and Hard Supercourses, which reward 100 and 50 co-op sync orbs respectively. Prior to version 1.9.0, co-op sync orbs were obtained from co-op battles when the "Sync orb chance!" message appeared.
