Pokemon Masters changes a few important mechanics with regards to building a team and using them in battle. Instead of a team of Pokemon, you have a team of Sync Pairs: essentially duos of trainers and their chosen Pokemon. Because of this, selecting Pokemon works differently than in other Pokemon games. In this guide on changing Pokemon in Pokemon Masters, we’ll detail how you can change which Pokemon you use in battle,and explain whether it is possible to switch out the Pokemon that a Sync Pair uses.
How to Change Pokemon in Pokemon Masters
Before each battle section in the story of Pokemon Masters, you have the option to change your team. You can select three pairs to head into battle with, each with one trainer and one Pokemon. If you’d like to use a different Pokemon, you’ll need to swap Sync Pairs out.
Can You Change the Pokemon in a Sync Pair?
Pokemon Masters uses Sync Pairs, meaning that you’ll never find a Pokemon on its own in the wild. You cannot change the Pokemon, or trainer in a Sync Pair, as they have attacks that work together. You can find Sygna Suit versions of certain Sync Pairs, which will change the Pokemon, for example Sygna Suit Brock gets Tyranitar instead of Onyx.
