Next, it was revealed that the game takes place on an artificial island in the Pokémon world called Pasio. On the island, trainers are gathered to compete in a tournament called the Pokémon Master’s League. Sync Pairs is the term for the pairs of trainers with their partner pokémon. Players can team up with these sync pairs to engage in 3-on-3 pokémon battles. At launch, there will be 65 Sync Pairs available, with more to come through updates.

The game has real-time battles with a move gauge that fills over time. Along with the traditional pokémon attacks, the trainers themselves have Trainer Moves that can heal or boost the stats. Trainers can also use Sync Moves, which are super-powered attacks in vein of Z-Moves from Pokémon Sun and Moon / Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

Finally, Sasaki concluded with confirming the game is scheduled for a Summer 2019 release.
