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.
Main Story Chapter 11 must be completed to unlock the Sync Grid feature.
There are two types of sync orbs.
Sync orbs are exclusive to each sync pair. These are obtained when a sync move is used during a single player battle when the "Sync orb chance!" message appears before the battle. If successful, the player is rewarded with 5 sync orbs at the end of the battle. If the player fails to use a sync move during the battle, the sync orb chance will continue to the next battle
Co-op sync orbs are obtained from co-op battles and are not exclusive to each sync pair. 10 co-op sync orbs can be exchanged for one sync pair-specific sync orb on the Sync Grid menu.
