Three new Pokémon have been added to Pokémon Masters as part of a new story event, including Dragonite.
The new event begins for players from today. The event will also continue through till January 21 at 9:59 PM PST. That gives players exactly three weeks to play the new story content before it disappears.
That's plenty of time for anyone to complete the new missions. That being said, some of the rewards players will get come directly from logging into the game. So, logging in as often as possible will reward you with more stuff that's useful down the line.
Pokémon Masters gets Dragonite, Solgaleo, & Garchomp
Dragonite is merely one of the new Pokémon being added to the game alongside this event. Players will have access to a couple more though.
One of those, Solgaleo, is a legendary Pokémon from the Alola region. It's also the second legendary Pokémon in the game, and it can be paired up with the main character you play in-game. Which means you have three Pokémon you can pair with the main character.
In addition to Dragonite and Solgaleo, Garchomp is being added as well. Unlike Solgaleo though, both Dragonite and Garchomp are only as new sync pairs with their own trainers.
Players can acquire these new sync pairs through the spotlight scout feature, but it should also be possible to interact with them via the Two Champions event going on as part of the new content.
This event begins today along with the others, and continues through to January 21 at 9:59 PM PST.
Additional event rewards include gems and Solgaleo level cap
Two of the smaller events included with this content update are The Beast That Devours The Sun and The New Year's Rally.
The first one is paramount if you want to unlock the level cap for Solgaleo. Going through the missions that are part of it will net you special items that you will need to unlock the level cap as well as learn new skills for the legendary Pokémon.
If you plan to use Solgaleo as your sync pair Pokémon, then you'll want to go through this event.
The New Year's Rally event is where you can complete special missions for gems. You can also acquire them for logging in. All told you can get up to 7,000 gems for doing those things.
So this is where it would pay off to log in and play for a little bit each day or as often as possible for the next three weeks.
