Mina and Granbull, a 3★ sync pair

A sync pair (Japanese: バディーズ Buddies) is a pair consisting of one Pokémon Trainer and one Pokémon in Pokémon Masters. Each sync pair has one of three roles: strike sync pairs, which are focused on attacking; support sync pairs, which are focused on defending, healing HP, and increasing stats of the whole team; and tech sync pairs, which are focused on different tactics, such as inflicting status alterations.

Mechanics

Moves and skills

Main article: List of moves in Pokémon Masters
Moves and Skills menu

Sync pairs have access to two different types of moves:

  • Pokémon moves - these require a specific amount of move gauge slots to be used. An exception are quick moves which, similar to trainer moves, do not use move gauge slots but have a set number of times they can be used
  • Trainer moves - these are unique to Pokémon Masters. They do not require the use of move gauge slots, but can only be used a set number of times in a battle

Each sync pair knows two moves when recruited, and can know up to four moves. Sync pairs can also unleash sync moves, which are powerful moves that can be used once a certain amount of moves have been used in battle. Sync pairs can also learn passive skills, which are similar to Abilities in the core series. Certain sync pairs can learn up to three passive skills.

Sync pairs rewarded from Legendary Events instead use "custom" items exclusive to their respective event. The amount of each item needed also varies between these Sync pairs.

  • As of Giovanni and Mewtwo's rerun, the pair was updated to no longer use Custom Super Training Machines. The item actually became unobtainable for any players who did not get them during the event's initial run, although it no longer served a purpose.

The power of Pokémon moves can be increased. When the player scouts a sync pair that they already have, the power of the moves is increased by one level. The level of the moves starts at level one, and can be boosted to level 5. At level 5, the power of the moves is increased by 20% with respect to level 1.

Level

Sync pairs gain experience and level up by winning battles or by using Level-Up Manuals. Leveling up increases a sync pair's stats, with them being identical in their role to the stats of the main games except for Speed, which instead affects the rate at which the move gauge fills.

Sync pairs have level caps, with the number of stars determining the level cap. 3★ sync pairs have an initial level cap of 35, 4★ sync pairs have an initial level cap of 40, and 5★ sync pairs have an initial level cap of 45. The player can increase these level caps by using items or increasing the stars of the pair.

Pokémon hatched from Eggs do not have level caps, and are thus immediately eligible for the highest level that their star rating allows.

The items required differs depending on each pair's base number of stars, with pairs rewarded during the story having the cost of one star lower.

Reaching certain levels can allow the Pokémon to evolve; for example, at level 30, Barry's Piplup can evolve into Prinplup, at level 45 it can evolve into Empoleon, which then causes it to learn the sync move Late Fee Bubble Beam.

Increasing potential

The player can also increase the stats of sync pairs by using power-ups. Each power-up provides a +2 boost to HP, and a +1 boost to each other stat. Only the power-up corresponding to the number of sync pair stars can be used. For example, a 3★ power-up can only increase the potential of a 3★ sync pair. Once 20 power-ups are used, the number of stars for that sync pair increases by one. 5★ pairs can be given up to 20 5★ power-ups even though they can’t increase their number of stars, in this case each power-up increases the HP stat by 5 and the other stats by 2 if the pair was a 5★ pair when scouted, otherwise each 5★ power-ups will increase the HP stat by 2 and all the other stats by 1.

Type and resistance

Even though each pair has a single type, the resistances and defensive properties of the pair do not depend on it. Each sync pair has only a single weakness to a specific type and the resistances to status alterations, when available, are exclusively gained through passive skills.

Sync pair scout

Players can recruit sync pairs that are not available through the main story through sync pair scout at the shop. It costs 300 gems (or 100 paid gems daily (Up to 3 times if the Spotlight Scout features more than one Sync pair starting with Ethan and Hilda Spotlight Scout)) to scout one sync pair (3000 gems to scout 10 at once), which is chosen randomly from a pool of sync pairs. There is a 73% chance of obtaining a 3★ sync pair (70% in Poké Fair scouts), 20% chance of a 4★ sync pair, and 7% chance of a 5★ sync pair (10% in Poké Fair scouts). While the door opening animation ultimately reveals the number of stars of the pairs, sometimes the Poryphone animation will reveal the lower bound for the number of stars: if an antenna comes out of the Poryphone, a sync pair with no less than 4★ is being recruited, if the Poryphone sparks upon being inserted and the background turns rainbow during the scouting process which causes a parabolic antenna to come out, a 5★ pair is being recruited. In addition starting from version 1.5.0, a background preview animation of the 5★ pair will play.

As previously mentioned, if the player scouts a sync pair they have already recruited, then the sync pair receives an increase in level to their moves. Once the sync pair's move level is maxed out to level 5, if the player again scouts that sync pair, the player will instead receive a power-up item corresponding to the sync pair's number of stars.

A scout point will be awarded for every one hundred gems spent through sync pair scouts. If a player manages to achieve 400 scout points, the player will be able to scout for a sync pair of their choice. However, scout points gained during a specific spotlight scout will expire once the spotlight scout expires, and they will not carry over to another spotlight scout.

The available sync pairs change as the game introduces more Trainers, with specific spotlight scouts giving a higher chance of obtaining the sync pair that the event is focused on. Starting with Leaf Spotlight scout, any recently added sync pair who's spotlight scout is still active will not appear on this spotlight scout but will appear on the next spotlight scout once their spotlight scout ends.
