Over the New Year period, two new seasonal Sync Pairs were added to DeNA's Pokemon Masters, with both sporting outfits to celebrate the occasion. They are Lance & Gyarados and Lillie & Ribombee, with both having an individual Seasonal Scout that will be available until January 13th or 14th, depending on your location. 

Lillie & Ribombee will have access to a move called Alola Lang Syne! which raises the evasiveness of ally Snyc Pairs alongside protecting them from status conditions. Meanwhile, Lance & Gyarados will be able to use Hyper Beam, a powerful move that uses up four bars of the six available in the move gauge, so use it wisely.

Both Sync Pairs have arrived in Pasio with the ability to be upgraded to 6-Star EX which will make their Pokemon more powerful alongside unlocking a new outfit for the Trainers to wear. There will also be an in-game event called Season's Greetings for players to tackle.

This will see players earning cards by completing a series of battles. These cards can then be exchanged for a variety of different Training Items which can then be used to power-up different Sync Pairs. There are various missions to complete for extra rewards and Medals too.

Beyond that, players will be able to earn themselves up to 7200 Gems by completing the series of login and mission challenges that are on offer. 1200 of these are available through special missions whilst the rest can be obtained simply by remembering to log in on a daily basis.

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