The upcoming freemium mobile game Pokémon Masters will be released for iOS and Android in North Hemisphere summer 2019 (Southern Hemisphere winter). The game will feature pairs of Trainers and Pokémon facing off in 3-vs-3 battles.

Each Trainer is paired with a single Pokémon, with this pair known as a sync pair. At launch, there will be 65 sync pairs that can be recruited, with more added after launch.

In battle, the player controls three sync pairs at once against three opposing sync pairs in a real-time battle. Each sync pair has a different role, such as strike or support, so the game encourages players to choose a team of sync pairs that complement each other. Both Pokémon and Trainers can use moves, but these moves are limited by the move gauge (which recharges over time) or have a limited number of uses.

In addition to standard moves, players can occasionally deploy sync moves—powerful attacks performed by specific sync pairs. Sync move animations borrow many visual aspects from Z-Moves.
