Barry and Selene in their new Special Costumes, with their sync pairs Heracross and Scizor
While we haven't gotten an explicitly Easter-themed event in Pokémon Masters EX, April is still bringing with it a brand new Costume Event, New Heroes Are Born. Also launching today is the first of two new Costume Sync Pairs featured in this event, as well as a Welcome Back Rally for returning players.

Costume Event: New Heroes Are Born
This new event sees Barry and Selene getting roped in to some costumed heroics at a battle event being held by The Masked Royal and Crasher Wake. This event is available in-game now, and will continue through until May 16th, at 10:59pm (PDT).

By completing battles during this event, players can earn Event Voucher Z items, which can be exchanged for a variety of valuable items including 5★ Scout Tickets and Power-Ups, Special Skill Feather 27 and 28, Skill Items, Sync Orbs for Barry (Special Costume) and Selene (Special Costume), Lucky Cookies for Barry (Special Costume), Selene (Special Costume), and The Masked Royal & Incineroar, and a Strike Move Candy Coin. Players can also obtain Gems and Event Medals for completing special missions during the event.

Costume Event: New Heroes Are Born - Event Medals
As usual for events of this type, players will receive bonus rewards if they take on event battles using teams that feature specific sync pairs. The more of these sync pairs that players place in their lineup, the greater the bonus received. The applicable sync pairs and reward rates are as follows:
These bonuses stack additively, so having a team consisting of Barry (Special Costume) & Heracross, The Masked Royal & Incineroar, and Crasher Wake & Floatzel would grant a combined +140% (x2.4) rewards.

Players should also note the following when playing this event:
  • The number of plays available for Daily Extreme Battle 1 are reset every day at 11:00pm (PDT).
  • To participate, players must have completed Main Story Chapter 1: The More the Merrier (Normal) in single-player.
  • The sync pairs that appear as opponents in battle have different capabilities than those players can actually obtain.
  • All mission completion rewards must be claimed within three days of the mission period ending.
  • Leftover Event Voucher Z items will be automatically converted to coins at a rate of 10 coins per item at the end of the event, and sent to players' Present Boxes

The New Heroes Are Born event includes a log-in bonus over 14 days. Players can receive these bonuses up until April 28th, at 10:59pm (PDT), so even if you're a couple of days late starting the event you'll still have the chance to receive all of the available gifts.
