In Pokemon Masters, you won’t be catching Pokemon in the usual way. Instead, you’ll be scouting Sync Pairs: teams of Pokemon and trainers that work together in battle. To scout new Sync Pairs, you’ll need to use the Poryphone, and it’ll cost you some Gems. To make sure you’re up to speed on where to get Gems in Pokemon Masters, we’ve put together this Pokemon Masters Gems Guide. We’ll explain the Pokemon Masters Scouting Cost, and the difference between Paid and Non-Paid Gems.
How to Earn Gems in Pokemon Masters
You’ll need Gems to get new Sync Pairs in Pokemon Masters, though they are quite hard to accumulate. You’ll earn 30 per main battle mission in the story. You’ll also earn 10 Gems per Sync Pair Story, and for the shorter story-based missions. There are daily log-in bonuses too, and many of them will give you a huge amount of Gems just for signing in around launch. We’ve consistently earned from 50 to 100 Gems for doing this, so keep an eye out.
Pokemon Masters Scouting Cost
The reason you’ll want to be collecting Gems in Pokemon Masters is because you’ll need to Scout new Sync Pairs. Each scouting will cost you 300 Gems, made up from the Gems you collect and don’t pay for. We’ll explain the difference below.
Pokemon Masters: The Difference Between Paid and Non-Paid Gems
One thing you should note with Gems in Pokemon Masters is that there is a difference between Paid and Non-Paid Gems. You can buy Gems using real money, and can use those Gems to pay 100 for a Sync Pair scout. This is part of a daily discount, though non-paid cannot be used for this.
