Producers of Pokémon Masters release a letter acknowledging complaints, promises game changes in the future

The game's producers have a few words!

A letter has been released from the producers of Pokémon Masters at DeNA to apologize to fans and promise future changes! Check out a translated summary from serebii.net below, as well as a link to view the full Japanese letter.

DeNA have put out a letter from the producer Satoshi Sasaki and Tetsuya Iguchi addressing many complaints from fans. They have put forth an apology for the amount of problems the game has had, the small amount of content as they thought the current set-up and EX Challenge would be sufficient, but realise that EX Challenges are not for everyone and that they are sorry they brought the game to a point where there was little to do in it. They detail four different complaints that they commonly saw:
Lack of content
Rewards for stages not being enticing
Level design not being amazing
Game is difficult to understand
With this, they have promised that they are going to change direction with how the game will proceed in the future with more content, more attractive rewards for completing stages and aim to make it so that you can use your favourite Sync Pairs rather than necessarily the strongest for the situation. They will work on this but state it will take time. They'll provide periodic updates through letters, with the next one planned on October 17th. We'll provide more details as they come.

Hau’s Trainer Spotlight in Pokémon Masters, the Pokémon TCG, Manga, and More

Hau you doin?

Pokemon.com has shared another trainer spotlight today, this time featuring Hau. Learn all about Hau, and his appearance in Pokemon Masters below.

In a previous Trainer Spotlight, we discussed Blue, the first “rival” character in the world of Pokémon. Now, we're going to take a look at one of the more recent rivals, Hau, who made his debut in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. Despite having similar roles, Hau and Blue couldn't be more different. Hau is more of a friendly rival, who is kind and encouraging despite also working toward the goal of becoming a Pokémon League Champion.

So, grab a malasada (Hau's favorite food) and dive into the history of this cheerful Alola region Pokémon Trainer.

Pokemon Masters is suffering from a freaky faceless glitch

Face the facts

Pokemon Masters has been hit with some strange glitches so far. First we had the glitch that stretched character proportions, and now we have the above 'faceless avatar' glitch. As you can see, for whatever reason, something is causing the face of your avatar to disappear. It certainly makes for some scary imagery, so hopefully it gets fixed up soon!

- Hong Kong, Taiwan, and France account for $2 million, $1 million, and $920,000 spent by players there, respectively
- total spending during the game’s first week of availability averaged close to $3.5 million per day
- this has decreased over time, averaging $230,000 per day for the past week

Scout Hilda and Tepig and Take on Korrina and Lucario in Pokémon Masters

New details on the latest Sync Pair

Get ready for new events coming to Pokémon Masters this month! Check out a host of great stuff, including a brand-new story event, an EX Challenge against Korrina and Lucario, and a pair of ongoing events involving Hilbert and Oshawott and the Water-Type Training Event.

The new story event is entitled The Girl in Black and White, and it stars the sync pair Hilda and Tepig. You may remember Hilda as one of the player characters from Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version. This sync pair is available to scout with increased offering rates through October 16, 2019. And stay tuned for even more exciting missions coming later this month!

Additionally, a new EX Challenge featuring Korrina has been added to the co-op training area. Take on Korrina and her sync pair partner, Lucario. If you defeat them, you can earn Fire-type gear. But Korrina and Lucario had better watch out—they're a Fighting-type sync pair that is weak against Fire-type sync pairs, so they're in trouble if they go up against Hilda and Tepig. Remember that you'll need to clear Chapter 18's co-op battles on Hard to unlock EX Challenges.

There are a couple of ongoing events that will continue until October 7, 2019, at 10:59 p.m. PDT. Hilbert and Oshawott are still available in their sync pair scout event, so you have an increased chance of teaming up with this sync pair for a limited time. Meanwhile, the Water-Type Training Event allows Water-type sync pairs to gain extra XP while completing special battles. You'll also collect vouchers in co-op play that can be exchanged for helpful items.

If you've previously purchased the discounted monthly gem set, you will be able to purchase it again starting October 1. Please note that the other limited-purchase sets will not be available if you've already purchased those.

Pokémon Masters is available to download now, so have fun, Trainers! For more details, be sure to visit the Pokémon Masters official site.
