We're Going to Learn a Lot More About DeNa's Pokemon Masters Mobile Game Later This Week

The Pokemon Company is prepping a livestream event just for Pokemon Masters.

The Japanese Twitter account for the Pokemon Company has announced a new livestream event later this month to reveal more about the upcoming mobile game Pokemon Masters. The event is scheduled for June 27 at 6am PT.

The livestream will focus on Pokemon Masters, a new smartphone mobile game developed in partnership with DeNA. The title was announced in late May during a Pokemon-focused livestream event hosted by the Pokemon Company.

Aside from a brief trailer, not much was revealed about Pokemon Masters. Based on the footage it seems that working together with famous Pokemon gym leaders forms a key mechanic in Pokemon Masters. Players can battle other gym leaders alongside characters like Brock and Misty.

The combat seems to be based on a 3v3 battle format, but with the player partnered with two gym leaders. It's unclear if these are PvP battles or against AI-controlled computers.

The Pokemon Company announced that Pokemon Masters will be coming out on iOS and Android later in 2019, so this could be the best look at the title before an official release. DeNA is the mobile games company that's been working with Nintendo on their own mobile game offerings like Fire Emblem: Heroes and Mario Kart Tour.

Other announcements made by the Pokemon Company during the May event includes a new sleep mechanic for Pokemon and Pokemon Go, and a new Pokemon Home app that connects your library across multiple Pokemon games. Unfortunately, Pokemon Sword and Shield won't support every Pokemon across past generations.
