For the latest message to the players from the Pokemon Masters' producers, they released a 10-minute video to detail several upcoming additions and changes to the game. They provided information on the legendary event, upcoming Sync Pairs and improvements for the game.

First of all, they discussed the upcoming legendary event called Lurking Shadow that will see the first Sync Pair to be added to the game where the Pokemon is a legendary. This pairing will be Giovanni and Mewtwo.

During the event, you'll be able to collect special vouchers that can be exchanged for items to make Mewtwo more powerful. Collecting a total of 800 of them will allow you to unlock a special area that will allow you to team up with Giovanni and Mewtwo.

The wording on how you unlock Mewtwo though is a little confusing as they mention being able to scout it, but the image above appears to suggest you can unlock the duo, guess we'll have to wait and see for now. They also mentioned that legendary events would return periodically and teased more legendary duos in the future, so I'm holding onto hope for Tobias and Darkrai.

They also revealed new Sync Pairs that will be heading to the game, starting with Grimsley and Liepard who'll have a featured Sync Pair scout from 27th November to 18th December. Running from that same date will be a Support Rally login event that will provide players with up to 4200 Gems if they log on for 14 days during that period.

To celebrate Christmas there'll be a festively dressed versions of Rosa and Siebold available in mid-December. This time around they'll be teamed up with Delibird and Octillery respectively. Then, in January we'll see the arrival of Lance and Dragonite, as well as Cynthia and Garchomp, bringing the two elite trainers to the Pasio.

Also arriving early next year, we can expect to see a few new features added to the game. The first is the Sync Grid, which promises a new way to enhance your Sync Pairs through unlocking different attributes on it. Finally, in February, we can expect to see the addition of the Battle Villa. This is a new single-player mode that will focus on the different roles of Sync Pairs. We can expect to hear more news on both of these things soon.
