The last story update was back in November last year, which saw the additions of chapters 19 through 21. It also gave players the opportunity to grab a free Sync Pair for beating those missions in Calem & Espurr.
That means we can presumably expect a similar deal this time around. The banner for the announcement in-game features Valerie who is a gym leader that appeared in Pokemon X and Y. Valerie specialises in fairy Pokemon in that game so her potential arrival would make her only the second Sync Pair of that typing, with the other being Mina & Granbull.
So, time for a little speculation then. The three Pokemon she has in her possession when you battle her in X and Y includes Mawile, Mr. Mime and Sylveon. The other times you can face her in the Battle Chateau she is sans Mr. Mime, so hopefully, that means it’ll be either Mawile or Sylveon because they’re far less unsettling.
If I had to guess, I’d say they’d go with Mawile because it’s capable of mega evolving and DeNA have enjoyed adding mega Pokemon to the game because it pairs well with the Sync Move mechanic. On top of that, Leaf & Eevee were recently added to the game so they might not want to add one of its evolutions so soon after.
Of course, this could all be wrong and they could pair her up with an entirely different fairy-type altogether. For instance, in the anime, she has a Spritzee, so it could go down that route with evolution into an Aromatisse a possibility. This all hinges on whether or not she even gets added as a free Sync Pair in the first place, naturally. But a little speculation is a good way to start the morning.
Pokemon Masters is available now over on the App Store and Google Play. It’s a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
