Description Known for being a bit gruff, the Frontier Brain takes on Trainers and Pokémon with passion. As Factory Head, he also has deep knowledge of Pokémon.

Noland (Japanese: ダツラ Datsura) is a Pokémon Trainer in Pokémon Masters EX, based on the character of the same name in the core series games. He forms a sync pair with Pinsir, which is capable of Mega Evolving. This sync pair was first made available since the game release. This pair can be raised to Masters EX star.png 6★ EX beginning on March 25, 2024.

Noland also forms a sync pair with his Ninjask. This pair can be obtained through a limited Variety sync pair scout beginning on October 7, 2023. This pair can be raised to Masters EX star.png 6★ EX since it first released, though this pair lacks an EX style.
