As previewed in the recent monthly update from the game's developers, the conclusion to the Final Chapter of the Villain Arc has launched today in Pokémon Masters EX. Paulo and Tina, who've played a significant story role throughout the Villain Arc, are also making their debut as playable sync pairs today in a special Double Feature Poké Fair Scout.

Villain Arc: Prelude to the Final Chapter
The Villain Arc has finally reached a cresendo, with the long-awaited launch today of the conclusion to the Final Chapter. After Giovanni managed to take over control of both Hoopa and Team Break from Paulo, Paul now leads the others in an infiltration of Team Rocket's hideout.

This chapter is a permanent addition to the main story. Players will need to have completed Main Story Chapter 1: The More the Merrier (Normal) in single-player in order to unlock this and other chapters of the Main Story Villain Arc.

Settle the score with Giovanni in upcoming special event and scout
In the coming week, a special event and scout will be available connecting to the events of the conclusion to the Villain arc. Both Special Event - Stop the Evil Mastermind and its accompanying Team Rocket Variety Scout will be available from September 5th, at 11:00pm (PDT). The Team Rocket Variety Scout will feature the playable sync pair debuts of all four Team Rocket Admins, plus a new sync pair for Giovanni:
  • Archer & Houndoom
  • Ariana & Arbok
  • Petrel & Wezing
  • Proton & Golbat
  • Giovanni & Rhydon
All five of these sync pairs will have the ability to unlock EX Roles when raised to 6★ EX.

Giovanni & Rhydon are a Field Sync Pair focused on doing damage to all opponents through the combination of Sandstorms, and devastating Ground-type attacks including their Crushing Earthquake Buddy Move. After being raised to 6★ EX, they'll apply a Ground Zone to the field before their first sync move in each battle.

If players collectively complete over 400,000 missions for Special Event - Stop the Evil Mastermind by September 15th, at 10:59pm (PDT), all players will receive a Team Rocket Executive Scout Ticket item as a special reward. This item will allow players to receive a random one of the four Team Rocket Admin sync pairs.

As with a typical Poké Fair Scout, 5★ Sync Pairs will have a 10% chance of appearing, with the two featured trainers having a higher chance of being scouted. As always, Poké Fair exclusive Sync Pairs may reappear in future Poké Fair Scouts.

Paulo & Lycanroc are a 5★ Rock-type Sprint Sync Pair with a Support EX Role. Thei, with a variety of moves and Passive Skills designed to help the player's team quickly reduce their sync move countdown. Their “Quick Move”: Sync CD ↓ 9 Passive Skiull reduces their sync move countdown by 1 whenever they use a move with the quick move effect, like their Accelerock move that they can use up to 3 times. When raised to 6★ EX, their sync move On the Path Together Rock Impact will reduce their sync move counterdown by another 3, with their EX Role effect doubling the stat increase from the sync move once per battle. When raised to 6★ EX, Paulo's grey jacket and red backpack are reversed, giving them an orange-red jacket and grey backpack.

Tina & Flareon are a 4★ Fire-type Support sync pair, whose support move allows them to raise all allies Attack, Defense, Sp. Def, and Speed by 1 stat rank, making them a potent buffer for any team focused on physical attacks. Their Charm move also allows them to reduce their target's Attack by 2 stat ranks.
