  • Battle Villa
  • Six-Month Anniversary Celebration
  • Other Updates

Sync Grid


  • Sync grid tiles can be activated through sync orbs, which can be collected in battle (A "Sync orb chance!" message may appear at the beginning of battle.) Using a sync move gives you a chance to earn orbs as drops.
  • Activating tiles teaches your Sync Pairs new skills and increases stats. That being said, upgrading comes at the cost of your available energy, which is finite.
  • Some tiles are tied to additional requirements, including Sync Move level.

Grid Skills

  • The Grid will help trainers unlock Stat raises, Sync move enhancements, Move power-ups, and Passive skills.

Grid Availability

  • All Sync Pairs will come with a basic sync grid with the launch of the feature.
  • Sync grids will be expanded on in the future for Sync pairs with coming updates.

Future Plans

  • In late January, Pryce & Seel will have an expanded sync grid.
  • The plan going forward is expanding the sync grids for ~4 pairs a month.
