Description This Champion of Sinnoh is an archeologist who researches the history and mythology of Pokémon. Her deep love for Pokémon sent her on an adventure when she was young.

Cynthia (Japanese: シロナ Shirona) 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 Garchomp, which is capable of Mega Evolving. The sync pair can be obtained through limited-time sync pair scouts, first available on January 1, 2020. The pair's potential can be upgraded to Masters EX star.png 6★ EX from November 23, 2020, which unlocks Cynthia's EX Style.

Cynthia is also available in her sygna suit, alongside her sync pair Kommo-o. The sync pair can be obtained through a limited sync pair scout, and was first available on August 17, 2020. This pair is also capable of being upgraded to Masters EX star.png 6★ EX from February 22, 2021.
