A new year is dawning in Pokémon Masters EX, and Sootopolis City’s Wallace is at the forefront of Pasio’s festivities. This Gym Leader from the Hoenn region has decided to organize a mountain-climbing trip so everyone can witness the new year’s first sunrise in the most spectacular possible fashion. Find out how his plan unfolds in Story Event: Rising New Year’s Resolutions.

Clair (New Year’s 2024) & Drampa

Clair (New Years’s 2024) & Drampa are a Dragon-type support sync pair that can provide all-around support to their allies with X Defense All and You’re Good! The former raises the Defense of all allied sync pairs by two stat ranks, and the latter raises the Attack and Sp. Atk by of all allied sync pairs by two stat ranks and increases allies’ critical-hit rate by three stat ranks. Clair (New Year’s 2024) & Drampa’s unique ability to raise both Attack and Sp. Atk make them a flexible fit for many different teams.

This Dragon-type sync pair also has the unique passive skill T-Move: Team Free Move Next 9, which applies the Free Move Next effect to all allied sync pairs when Clair (New Year’s 2024) & Drampa use a Trainer move. That means that each time they use X Defense All or You’re Good!, the next move each of their allies use won’t consume a single move gauge slot—making them the perfect partner to sync pairs with hard-hitting, high-cost moves.

For more details on this sync pair’s passive skills and moves, check out Clair (New Year’s 2024) & Drampa’s in-game sync pair scout screen. Clair (New Year’s 2024) & Drampa are available to scout until January 18, 2024, at 9:59 p.m. PST.

Wallace (New Year’s 2024) & Blacephalon

Wallace (New Year’s 2024) & Blacephalon are an explosive Fire-type field sync pair with moves and passive skills that are just as flashy as Wallace’s outfit. The duo have the unique Trainer move Hoenn Analysis, which applies Hoenn Circle (Special) to the allied field of play. Hoenn Circle (Special) powers up the special attack moves and special sync moves of all allied sync pairs and reduces the damage taken by allied sync pairs from special attack moves and special sync moves. These bonuses get even better with each additional Hoenn-region sync pair on your team!

And given Wallace’s and Blacephalon’s flare for the flamboyant, it’s unsurprising that their buddy move, Strange Flames Mind Blown, keeps the audience on their toes. When this Fire-type move is used, it increases the user’s Special Moves ↑ Next effect by zero to ten ranks at random. Will their next flaming performance flop in its own embers or burn bright in the night? There’s only one way to find out.

For more details on this sync pair’s passive skills and moves, check out Wallace (New Year’s 2024) & Blacephalon’s in-game sync pair scout screen. Wallace (New Year’s 2024) & Blacephalon are available to scout until January 18, 2024, at 9:59 p.m. PST.

Blacephalon is absolutely heinous.
I bet James Turner designed it!
