This mobile game is a collaboration between The Pokémon Company and DeNA Co., Ltd., and it gives longtime fans an opportunity to reunite with Gym Leaders and Champions from previous Pokémon video games for an all-new adventure. Welcome to Pasio! Pokémon Masters takes place on the artificial island of Pasio. On Pasio, Pokémon and their Trainerscalled sync pairsshare a special bond. Many famous Trainers from every region featured so far in the Pokémon video games have gathered on Pasio along with their partner Pokémon and formed their own sync pairs. You are the main character in Pokémon Masters, and you'll embark on an exciting adventure with a Pokémon partner of your own. Along the way, you'll meet various Trainers, make new friends, and work together with them as you advance through the story. Once you've made friends with other sync pairs, you can form a team that's all your own and aim to become the champion of the Pokémon Masters League tournament being held on Pasio.

    Team Up with Famous Trainers

    Meeting and working together with formidable Trainers from other regions is a core aspect of Pokémon Masters, and it brings an interesting twist to the game's story. Some of the sync pairs you'll encounter on Pasio include the legendary Pokémon Trainer Red and his Charizard, the powerhouse Trainer (and grandson of the famous Professor Oak) Blue and his Pidgeot, and Cynthia, the Champion of Sinnoh, along with her Garchomp.

    Three-on-Three Pokémon Battles

    Once you've joined forces with other sync pairs, you'll get to engage in Pokémon battles! The battles in Pokémon Masters are 3-on-3 matches that play out in real time. You can unleash powerful attacks one after the next as your move gauge refills over time. What's more, in Pokémon Masters battles, players can direct Pokémon to unleash attacks as usual, but Trainers can use their own moves and healing items in battle for the very first time. A Trainer's move can increase a Pokémon's stats or have other effects. With multiple sync pairs squaring off at once, you'll have to develop all-new strategies if you hope to come out on top.

    Pokémon Masters is different enough from Pokémon Go to warrant a download from all those who love Pokémon.

    While not giving back the sense of adventure and the unbridled collecting of the games that make up the main series of Game Freak, Pokémon Masters can represent an excellent pastime for those who are never satisfied with struggles between Pocket Monsters: production can indeed entertain with a story long-lived and a fair amount of content.

    If you’re a fan of the franchise, you’ll get a kick out of seeing your favourite Pokémon and trainers in such stunning detail. The writing is also a joy, providing a genuinely engaging story that we didn’t feel the need to skip. Core Pokémon RPG fans will find the battle system too easy, with little challenge. Heck, even gacha RPG fans might find the poor AI baffling, as their Pokémon don’t use the elemental strengths to their advantage often.

    Pokémon Masters is a solid mobile release, and perhaps one of the most well-realised Pokémon mobile titles to date – especially in terms of presentation Sadly, the lack of any competitive element and little to do other than grind between events and story addition mean that it’s not entirely clear if the game will have the staying power required to keep people interested beyond the first few months. Still, the potential for character crossover in this game is unparalleled, and hopefully, it won't be squandered.

    We really like the concept and the gameplay, but it’s lacking content. We’re sure this will change soon, so keep an eye on it, since it has all the ingredients to end up being a must-have for Pokémon fans.

    Pokémon Masters lacks ambition and dedication in an interesting mobile game, with a traditional Pokémon flavor. However, it's not enough when we speak about one of the biggest videogames franchises. Only for fans.

    Despite graphical sparkle, the lack of depth and vapid gacha mechanics rob the game of both charm and longevity, leaving the long slog only to those obsessed with completing their trainer roster despite the crushing tedium.

Pagar es completamente volutanrio, y no entorpece el desarrollo del juego. Solo sirve para desbloquear diferentes entrenadores más rápidamente. La jugabilidad no está nada mal para un juego de móvil, una mezcla entre Pokemon GO y la saga original por turnos. Los gráficos, animaciones y diseño de personajes están muy trabajados. Expand

    Nice graphics and story. But boring gameplay... maybe good for young kids.

    I only got a few hours in then couldn't go on any longer.

Using a children IP with paid micro-transactions that resemble gambling. To get a specific unit you end up spending hundreds of dollars. I know of people spending thousands already.
    Something needs to be done about it. For the love of god put the effort to regulate these type of games.
