The Pokémon Company International Reveals Latest Innovation for the Pokémon Trading Card Game with New Pokémon TCG Live App

Pokémon TCG Gameplay Comes to Smartphones for the First Time

Today, The Pokémon Company International unveiled Pokémon TCG Live, a new app that allows Trainers to enjoy the Pokémon Trading Card Game in an updated digital format. Releasing as a free-to-play game, Pokémon TCG Live also marks the first time that the Pokémon TCG will be playable on smartphones, in addition to tablets, PCs, and Macs.

The announcement comes as The Pokémon Company International continues its yearlong celebration of the brand’s 25th anniversary by engaging fans with innovative Pokémon experiences and products.

“As we look back on 25 wonderful years of Pokémon, we are once again reminded of how the Pokémon Trading Card Game has always been a strong pillar of the franchise and beloved by young and veteran Trainers alike,” said Barry Sams, vice president of the Pokémon TCG at The Pokémon Company International. “Pokémon TCG Live will go hand in hand with the tabletop version that fans know and love, and welcomes a new era of digital play where Trainers around the world can play together regardless of their preferred platform.”

Pokémon TCG Live is designed to be easy for beginners to learn how to play the game, while offering fresh challenges for existing players to improve and test their skills. Players will be able to enjoy some of their favorite Pokémon TCG activities, including building decks and battling other Trainers around the world. They will also be able to tailor their experience with customizable avatars and Pokémon TCG accessories, participate in daily quests, and more. In addition, Pokémon TCG Live will continue to be updated with new content and features following launch.

Pokémon TCG Live will be coming soon to supported iOS and Android devices, as well as PCs and Macs via Pokemon.com. Trainers looking to preview the game prior to broad availability will be able to participate in the mobile soft launch in Canada and the global open beta for PCs and Macs later this year.

International Trailer Debuts Today Featuring Original Music by Cyn

Special In-Game Activations Celebrating the Movie Planned for Pokémon Sword, Pokémon Shield, and More

BELLEVUE, Wash., and LOS ANGELES—September 7, 2021—The Pokémon Company International and Netflix announced today that the next animated movie in the Pokémon franchise will premiere on Netflix around the world with the exception of Japan, China, and Korea on October 8, 2021. First revealed in November 2020, “Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle” marks the 23rd animated Pokémon movie in the franchise.

Image

The first official international trailer for the movie was released today and can be viewed here. It features “Always Safe” and “No Matter What,” two original songs written and recorded by music artist Cyn for the movie. Fans can look forward to hearing these songs during the movie on October 8 and stream them on popular music platforms beginning today. Cyn is also one of the many notable artists participating in the P25 Music program celebrating 25 years of Pokémon, for which she wrote and recorded another new song, “Wonderful.”

Image

“During Pokémon’s 25th anniversary year, we wanted fans to have the opportunity to experience the newest animated Pokémon movie simultaneously as a global community,” said Emily Arons, senior vice president of licensing at The Pokémon Company International. “Pokémon animation is a much-beloved pillar of the franchise, and Netflix is the perfect partner to once again help us deliver a worldwide moment for fans as we celebrate 25 years of action and adventure with Ash and his Pikachu.”

“Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle” synopsis:
Deep within the Forest of Okoya, the Mythical Pokémon Zarude live in a troop and maintain a strict rule that forbids outsiders from entering their territory. Elsewhere in the jungle lives Koko, a human boy raised by a lone Zarude who left the troop. Koko has grown up never doubting that he is a Zarude. But one day, a chance meeting with Ash and Pikachu leaves Koko with his first human friend. Is he truly a Pokémon? Or is he, in fact, a human? When danger threatens the jungle, the bonds between Pokémon and human—and the love between parent and child—will be put to the test.

To further celebrate the announcement, beginning today, Trainers will be able to receive Dada Zarude and Shiny Celebi—both as featured in the movie—in their Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield games by signing up for Pokémon Trainer Club email notifications. Trainers who register in this way by September 25, 2021, will receive a Pokémon Trainer Club email containing a distribution code for both Pokémon on October 7, 2021.

Fans can also look forward to a crossover with Pokémon GO celebrating the global launch of “Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle” on Netflix. More details will be announced soon.

“POKÉMON EVOLUTIONS” ANIMATED SERIES REVEALED FOR POKÉMON’S 25TH ANNIVERSARY

Eight-Episode, Web-Exclusive Series Premieres Sept. 9

The eight-episode series will take fans on a journey through all the known regions of the Pokémon world explored in the popular core video game franchise since it launched 25 years ago. Throughout 2021, The Pokémon Company International has invited fans on a retrospective journey of these regions and the Pokémon originally discovered in them. Like the retrospective, the series will begin in the Galar region, most recently explored in the latest video games Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, and culminate in the Kanto region, originally explored by players in the first games from the franchise, Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green in 1996. Each episode will focus on a story from a different region in reverse chronological order from which they were first explored in the games: Galar, Alola, Kalos, Unova, Sinnoh, Hoenn, Johto, and Kanto. Familiar tales from Pokémon lore will be told from a fresh perspective in every episode.

“‘Pokémon Evolutions’ is both an exciting new collection of animation for the brand and a thank-you to the millions of fans around the world who have joined us on this journey over the past 25 years,” said Colin Palmer, vice president of marketing for The Pokémon Company International. “Each region has been a touchstone for new generations of Pokémon Trainers as the brand has grown, and we wanted ‘Pokémon Evolutions’ to pay homage to that legacy while also being innovative and contemporary. It’s a new adventure and familiar all at once. And, with the last episode set in Kanto, ‘Pokémon Evolutions’ is a meaningful way to end our anniversary celebrations in the place where it all began for Pokémon 25 years ago.”

“Pokémon Evolutions” is being produced by The Pokémon Company International in collaboration with OLM Studios and will premiere exclusively on the official Pokémon YouTube channel and Pokémon TV worldwide on the following dates:

Thursday, Sept. 9: “The Champion” featuring the Galar region
Thursday, Sept. 23: “The Eclipse” featuring the Alola region
Thursday, Oct. 7: “The Visionary” featuring the Kalos region
Thursday, Oct. 21: “The Plan” featuring the Unova region

The official Pokémon UNITE website has announced that Blastoise is now available to join your team in the game.

Image

Blastoise Has Blasted into Pokémon UNITE

Get ready to make a big splash in Pokémon UNITE, as Blastoise is now available to join your team. This popular Pokémon is a Ranged Defender, and it’s sure to provide some useful support for your squad. This Pokémon begins each match as Squirtle, but it will evolve into Wartortle at Lv. 5, and Blastoise at Lv. 9. You can even make your Blastoise look positively fancy with its available Fashionable Style Holowear.

Image

Blastoise’s basic attack becomes a boosted attack with every third attack, dealing continual damage and decreasing the movement speed of opposing Pokémon for a short time when it hits. Its Ability, Torrent, causes its Attack and Sp. Atk to increase when the Pokémon is at half HP or less. Now, let’s take a look at Blastoise’s available attacks.

Blastoise’s Moves
At Lv. 1 and Lv. 3, Squirtle can learn Water Gun, a ranged attack that hits your opponent with a shot of water, shoving them back and decreasing their movement speed for a short time. It can also learn Skull Bash, a dash attack that fiercely rams an opposing Pokémon a temporarily leaves it unable to act.

When Squirtle reaches Lv. 5, Water Gun can evolve into one of two attacks. Hydro Pump is a ranged attack that blasts out a huge volume of water, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon and shoving them when it hits. The attack can be further upgraded to increases the damage it deals. Water Spout is an area effect attack that sprays water toward the designated location, decreasing the movement speed of opposing Pokémon in the area of effect for a short time. Like Hydro Pump, it can be upgraded to increase its damage.

Reaching Lv. 7 allows you to evolve Skull Bash into one of two attacks. Surf is a dash attack that has the user charge forward on a wave, shoving opposing Pokémon and leaving them unable to act for a short amount of time. The user becomes immune to hinderances while using this move and can jump in a designated direction once this attack ends. You can even upgrade Surf to grant a shield when the move hits. Rapid Spin is a buff move that causes Wartortle to spin rapidly, changing the mechanics of its basic attacks as well as its Hydro Pump and Water Spout moves. An upgrade to Rapid Spin move reduces the damage Wartortle receives while using the move.

Blastoise’s Unite Move, Hydro Typhoon
To inflict some real damage, take advantage of Blastoise’s Unite Move, Hydro Typhoon, which it learns at Lv. 9. This melee attack has the user spout water to attack while it spins. Any opposing Pokémon caught in the attack’s large range area will be thrown. Not only that, but the attack also grants Blastoise a shield to protect it from incoming attacks.

Blastoise is ready to shell out some punishment and defend your team. You can surf on over to the Unite Battle Committee shop and get Blastoise’s Unite license now.

Message from the Pokémon Masters EX Team (Vol. 24)

Greetings, Trainers. We’re the producers of Pokémon Masters EX, Yu Sasaki and Tetsuya Iguchi, here with a new message for you. Today, we’ll focus on details about the two-year anniversary update and share info about the new Main Story arc.

App Update for Late August

Rewards from the Regular Log-In Bonus Get Even Better
To mark the game’s two-year anniversary and show our appreciation for your support, we’ve made the rewards that you can get from the regular log-in bonus even better. The change will take effect on September 1, 2021. We hope you’ll find these rewards useful on your adventures.

Zero Stamina Consumption for the Evolution Material Area and Sync Orb Area
After taking into consideration your feedback and the current state of the game, we have made changes so that playing the Evolution Material Area and Sync Orb Area consumes no Stamina.

We hope that this allows even more players to have an easier time playing the game while evolving Pokémon and powering up Sync Grids.

Level Cap Increased to Lv. 140
A new battle has been added to the Cap-Unlock Area, and Sync Pairs’ level caps have increased to Lv. 140. Once you power up your Sync Pairs even more, try taking on battles that you weren’t able to complete before.

The Two-Year Anniversary of Pokémon Masters EX Is Almost Here!

Pokémon Masters EX is about to welcome its two-year anniversary! We’re incredibly grateful for your support.

We’re going to keep working hard to provide you with even more exciting experiences, so we hope you look forward to what’s to come.

Next, we’d like to share specific details about the two-year anniversary and the new main story arc that will unfold after the anniversary.

10-Pair Ticket Scout Under Way! Max 100 Pairs!

First, here are details about the 10-Pair Ticket Scout, which is currently under way.

You can get one Ticket for this scout each day by logging in while the scout is available, for a total of up to 10 Tickets. One Ticket lets you scout 10 sync pairs from the 10-Pair Ticket Scout.

By getting all 10 Tickets, you can scout up to 100 sync pairs at no cost, so be sure to log in every day!

You Can Get Over 10000 Gems Total!

Image

To celebrate the two-year anniversary, we’re going to hold multiple Rallies from which you can get over 10000 Gems! Have a look below for details about the Rallies that we have planned.

Image

Gem Present
We’re going to send a present of 3000 Gems to all players on August 27, 2021, so don’t forget to check your Present Box on that day.

Special Log-In Bonus
A special two-year anniversary log-in bonus is coming on August 27, 2021. You can get over 3000 Gems from this bonus, so be sure to log in every day.

Daily Battle Present Event
The Daily Battle Present Event will begin on August 27, 2021.

By completing daily battles, you can get Gems, 5★-Guaranteed Scout Tickets, Battle Points, and other rewards. Each battle can only be challenged once per day.

Plus, on the first, fifth, tenth, and fifteenth days of the event, special battles will be added, from which you can get even more incredible rewards. If you complete every battle during the event, you’ll get 5000 or more gems. These battles will be easy to complete, so we hope you try taking them on every day.

Three Master Sync Pairs to Celebrate the Two-Year Anniversary!

Starting August 27, 2021, Lillie, N, and Steven will appear in Sync Pair Scouts on separate days, each wearing a special outfit to commemorate the two-year anniversary. Also beginning August 27, 2021, they’ll star in the Story Event: Hearts United. As Sync Pairs, they’ll be very powerful, so let’s take a look at some of their capabilities.

Lillie (Anniversary 2021) & Lunala

Image

Lillie (Anniversary 2021) & Lunala are a Ghost-type Master Sync Pair from the Alola region.

Their Shining Moonlight! move raises their Sp. Atk by six stat ranks and their critical-hit rate by three stat ranks, making them capable of using moves like Moongeist Beam to deal major damage right from the outset of battle.

They can also use Potion, and they have Passive Skills that reduce damage under certain conditions, making them an easy-to-use strike sync pair that excels at both offense and defense.

N (Anniversary 2021) & Reshiram

Image

N (Anniversary 2021) & Reshiram are a tech Master Sync Pair from the Unova region.

They have a Passive Skill called Extend Range that can cause Reshiram’s Blue Flare and Noble Roar moves to hit all opponents without sacrificing those moves’ power.

Also, they have a Passive Skill that will always lower the opponent’s Sp. Def when successfully attacking with a move, so they can weaken opponents with Noble Roar and then follow up with Blue Flare.

Steven (Anniversary 2021) & Rayquaza

Image

Steven (Anniversary 2021) & Rayquaza are a Master Sync Pair from the Hoenn region.

Normally their stats would get lowered when attacking with their Dragon Ascent or Draco Meteor moves, but thanks to their Downside Up Passive Skill, those stats will get raised instead.

On top of that, they have a Passive Skill that powers up moves based on how much their stats have been raised, making them a strike sync pair that gets stronger the more they attack with moves.

After the sync pair uses their Sync Move, Rayquaza will become Mega Rayquaza, increasing its stats even more. Also, Steven’s Rayquaza is a Shiny Rayquaza, so we hope you look forward to seeing it.

Plus, starting August 31, 2021, these three Sync Pair will be featured in an Extreme Battle Event.

Team Up with Misty (Swimsuit) & Psyduck!

Image

A Special Sync Pair Event starring Misty & Psyduck will begin on August 27, 2021. In this event, you can team up with Misty in a special outfit.

You can add Misty (Swimsuit) & Psyduck to your team just by watching the event’s story. They’re a versatile Sync Pair that can use Potion and Full Heal, making them a great choice for beginners.

Image

Plus, by advancing in the event and collecting rewards, you can exchange for items that increase Misty (Swimsuit) & Psyduck’s move level and potential, so we hope you give them a try.

A Special Sync Pair Scout to Commemorate the Two-Year Anniversary

Image

On August 27, 2021, the special 5★-Select Poké Fair Scout ×11 will begin. This one-time-only scout has multiple Fair-Exclusive Sync Pairs and allows you to make a selection of one Sync Pair from those included in the scout.

Image

Also, on September 2, 2021 and September 9, 2021, respectively, two Super Spotlight Scouts will begin, featuring various seasonal Sync Pairs. The lineups for the scouts will be different, so we hope you look forward to seeing which Sync Pairs will appear.

Image

Two-Year Anniversary Rerun Event

Image

Beginning September 2, 2021, various story events will start returning. These events will return in a special format, which includes adjustments to the battles and other aspects of each event so that you can enjoy their stories without using Stamina.

We think that those of you who have been playing since the game’s launch will find the lineup of returning events quite nostalgic, so we hope you enjoy them.

The Villain Arc of the Main Story Begins!

Image

Finally, we’ll share some info about the new Main Story arc that will begin after the PML story arc concludes.

The new Main Story arc is titled the “Villain Arc.” It’s a more serious story that focuses on the different Villains that have appeared throughout the Pokémon series, and now their trouble is coming to Pasio.

Image

It takes place after the PML arc is finished, but you can begin the Villain Arc even if you haven’t finished the PML arc—and enjoy both stories regardless which one you start with.

In case you’re wondering about the future of a certain character after the PML arc, we’re planning to show you what happened with that character as well, so stay tuned.

The Villain Arc is scheduled to begin with a prelude in mid-September and an update in late September, so please wait just a little longer.

In addition, the development team is working hard on planning and developing various improvements and new features for after the two-year anniversary, so we hope you continue to enjoy Pokémon Masters EX!

What to Expect in the Next Message

Our next message is scheduled for late September. In it, we plan to share more detailed information about the Villain Arc and discuss new story events.

We’re always working hard to deliver updates and improvements that make the world of Pokémon Masters EX as fun as possible.

We prioritize Trainers’ feedback throughout the development process, so don’t hesitate to let us know what you think.

Until next time, thank you for playing Pokémon Masters EX.
