Pokemon Masters is a lot of things. It is nontraditional, in that it has players working with teams of Sync Pairs that give you one notable trainer and their Pokemon. There is no capturing of any kind. It involves quite a bit more grind, in that each Sync Pair has to be leveled up and certain battles can be quite difficult without the type combinations you need. But, one of the more beneficial things is the spotlight it provides. Pokemon Masters is a means of getting to know characters better.
