Description May is a cheerful girl and the daughter of Professor Birch from the Hoenn region. She’s great at taking care of others and loves cute Pokémon and conducting fieldwork.

May (Japanese: ハルカ Haruka) 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 Mudkip and its evolved forms Marshtomp and Swampert, with Swampert being capable of Mega Evolving. The sync pair can be obtained through the sync pair scout, starting from January 14, 2021.

Mudkip → Marshtomp → Swampert

Mudkip can evolve into Marshtomp once it has reached level 30 through its Sync Pair Story Mudkip's Evolution, and then into Swampert once it has reached level 45 through its Sync Pair Story Marshtomp's Evolution.

Trivia

  • May was mentioned in Pokémon Masters EX before she was added into the game. In his Sync Pair Story, Brendan mentions that May focuses on Contests while Professor Birch focuses on fieldwork. She is also mentioned multiple times in Brendan's Pokémon Center lobby dialogue.
  • As shown in her description, May is based on the rival in the Hoenn games, because her father is Professor Birch.
