DeNA has made a few small changes to Pokemon Masters following the release of the latest Battle Villa yesterday. This includes a Welcome Back Rally, New Supercourse Difficulty and Background Music Changes. Nothing overly substantial then unless you happen to be a returning player. 

From today until May 1st there will be a Welcome Back Rally that is aimed at players who haven't played the game for 30 days or more. For each player, it will last for 30 days depending on when they sign into Pokemon Masters during the event period. 

This will include a variety of log-in bonuses and special missions for them to complete. Whilst this is undoubtedly great news for anyone thinking of coming back to the game, it's sure to annoy those who've not stopped playing since release who will likely see this as their loyalty to Pokemon Masters being ignored.

Elsewhere, five existing Supercourses have been given Super Hard difficulty options that will offer increased rewards compared to their easier counterparts, alongside an added challenge. The added courses include:

  • Level-Up Supercourse
  • Strike Supercourse
  • Tech Supercourse
  • Support Supercourse
  • Coin Supercourse

Finally, a cute addition to the game is the inclusion of retro background music to some areas of the game. From my brief time tapping around this included the Pokemon Center, the Team page and when you tap Explore. We're talking the original Game Boy versions of these tunes here so it's a lovely little nostalgic nod to those times. They won't be around for long though, with this expected to end tomorrow on 2nd April.

Pokemon Masters is available now over on the App Store and Google Play. It's a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
