'Pokémon Masters' Trailer Reveals New Information on Gameplay and Battling

The Pokémon Company and DeNA released a surprise trailer for Pokémon Masters, the upcoming mobile game, that feature more gameplay and details on various battle mechanics.

The bulk of the new Pokémon Masters trailer shows off the three-on-three battle mechanics shown in past videos. However, this time players will be able to battle with other players around the world to take on AI opponents.

Check out the latest Pokémon Masters trailer below.

While the gameplay is front and center in the latest Pokémon Masters trailer, some interesting information comes courtesy of the official press release.

Sygna Suits, which are not shown in the trailer, can change which Pokémon trainers use in the mobile game. Normally, specific trainers will only use one partner Pokémon but the Sygna Suits changes that. One example given in the press release was Brock swapping out Onix for Tyranitar when wearing this outfit.

It's unclear how or when you can unlock these Sygna Suits but it's something to look forward to when the game releases.

Pokemon Masters New Trailer Shows Off Trainers

Here's the gameplay mechanics shown in the trailer with information from the official Pokémon Masters press release.

  • Cooperative Play – Join two players from around the world for three-player co-op against AI opponents. Work together to unleash the unity attack, a special coordinated attack from all three sync pairs (a sync pair is the combination of a Trainer and their partner Pokémon).
  • 3-on-3 Real-Time Battling System – Witness the thrill of the 3-on-3 real-time battling system. The trailer offers a look at Trainers teaming up with their partner Pokémon to unleash powerful sync moves.
  • Pokémon Masters League – Compete in the Pokémon Masters League tournament, which features 3-on-3 battles that take place only on the artificial island of Pasio. In this tournament, Gym Leaders, Elite Four members, Champions, and all-stars from every region of the Pokémon world have formed sync pair teams. Players will battle these teams all across Pasio to obtain badges and become champion of the Pokémon Masters League.
  • Sygna Suits – Special outfits that Trainers can wear into battle. When Trainers wear a Sygna Suit, their partner Pokémon changes to match. For example, when Brock dons his Sygna Suit, he teams up with Tyranitar instead of Onix.

Pokémon Masters is set to release on iOS and Android this summer.
