Acerola (Japanese: アセロラ Acerola) is a Pokémon Trainer in Pokémon Masters EX, based on the character of the same name in the core series games. She forms a sync pair with Palossand. The sync pair is obtained during the events of Chapter 17 of the Main Story.

During the Fight and Fright story event, Acerola is also available in her fall attire designed to resemble a Mimikyu, which she forms a sync pair with.
