Pokemon Masters Battle Roles - Synergy, Each Role Explained

There are three Battle Roles to consider in Pokemon Masters. Here’s what each one does.

Pokemon Masters is a bitesize Pokemon game for mobile devices. It is a brand new Pokemon adventure, taking place on the island of Pasio, home to the Pokemon Masters League. In Pasio, Trainers and Pokemon team up in Sync Pairs, with three Sync pairs to each battle team. There are also three Battle Roles to consider, which we’ll be detailing in this Pokemon Masters Battle Roles Guide. We’ll take a look at the three Roles in Pokemon Masters: Strike, Support and Tech, and explain what each one specializes in. We’ll also explain how to make the most of all three by using Synergy.

Pokemon Masters Battle Roles

As we mentioned previously, there are three different Roles that each Sync Pair can have in Pokemon Masters. Each specializes in a different battle approach, and you’ll need to consider how you combine them carefully. To help you decide on your team set up in Pokemon Masters, we’ve detailed each of the three Battle Roles below:

  • Strike
  • Support
  • Tech

Pokemon Masters Strike Role

The first Role we’ll be taking a look at is the Strike Role. Sync Pairs that fall into the Strike Role specialize in attacking above all else, and should be seen as the glass cannons of the group. Olivia and Lycanroc fall into this category.

Pokemon Masters Support Role

Next up is Support, an important type for any team to have in Pokemon Masters. Those in the Support Role specialize in having high HP, and in applying buffs to allies. Drake and Salamence are an example of a Support Sync Pair.

Pokemon Masters Tech Role

Finally, we have the Tech Role. Sync Pairs in the Tech Role specialize in inflicting status conditions. They also work to debuff opponents. Flannery and Torkoal fall into Tech Role.

Pokemon Masters Synergy Effects

Synergy is an important part of building your team in Pokemon Masters. It refers to the mix of Roles you have in your team, and how effective they are when combined. For example, having three strike pokemon is rarely useful, and has a low Synergy. A Strike pokemon being buffed by two Support Roles is high Synergy. Basically, make sure you have a well-balanced squad to achieve high Synergy. Synergy is a descriptor, and does not hold any real gameplay effect however.

That’s all we have on Pokemon Masters Battle Roles. For more on the game, why not learn all about Sync Pairs in our Pokemon Masters Sync Pairs Guide. For other info, there’s our Pokemon Masters Everything We Know.
