The first legendary event has begun in Pokemon Masters, starring Giovanni & Mewtwo as the dastardly stars.
The new Sync Pair are available to battle now and can even be added to your squad.
The Pokemon Company confirms that by complete their story, you’ll be able to add the 5-star sync pair to your roster.
And their powerful sync move, World Domination Psystrike, will undoubtedly prove valuable to your team.
“If you’re having trouble defeating Giovanni & Mewtwo, remember that they’re weak to Dark-type moves,” a message from the Pokemon Company explains.
“Confronting them with sync pairs like Grimsley & Liepard, Nanu & Persian, or Cheren & Stoutland will give you an advantage.
“Taking on Giovanni & Mewtwo in co-op battles will earn you more drops of custom items as well if you’re up to the challenge.
“Once you team up with Giovanni & Mewtwo, you can use custom items to unlock this shady duo’s level cap and allow them to learn new moves.”
Pokemon Masters Trainers on Android and iOS will also get the chance to receive up to 4,200 gems within a 14-day period through log-in bonuses.
So it’ll be worth checking back regularly over the coming days, and during the special Legendary Rally.
The Pokemon Company has also confirmed that following this Legendary event, Indigo Plateau Champion and his Pokémon, Lance & Dragonite, and the Sinnoh region Champion and her Pokémon, Cynthia & Garchomp will be added to the game.
This is happening in the coming weeks and before the end of 2020.
And that’s not the only big Pokemon news this week, following a big reveal made by Nintendo for Pokemon Sword and Shield fans.
To celebrate the start of December, the Pokemon Sword and Shield developer has updated the in-game weather for winter.
Players who take a stroll in the game’s wild areas will notice that it’s now snowing in the exploration zones.
Likewise, if you’re short of Ice type Pokemon in your Pokedex, you can expect to encounter more frosty Pocket Monsters for the month of December.
It’s similar to the kind of thing you’d see in the likes of live service, online games like Pokemon Go.
Perhaps this means we’ll be treated to special Christmas events and other bonuses as the game continues to evolve.
It follows the release of the new Snorlax Gigantamax update on the Nintendo Switch.
Players will be able to battle against Gigantamax Snorlax in Max Raid battles from now until early January.
“These Snorlax are capable of Gigantamaxing! When Gigantamaxed, these special Snorlax gain a different appearance than regular Dynamax Snorlax, and they can also unleash a G-Max Move called G-Max Replenish,” a message from Nintendo explains.
And there’s more Pokemon news for gamers who play the hit mobile game, Pokemon Go. A new evolution event is kicking off at 9pm, GMT, today, December 5.
The Pokemon Go evolution will include a special Raid Day on Saturday, December 7, as well as boosts for catching special evolution types.
New Pokemon Go Field Research has also been promised and is likely to go live later today.
