Marnie, Morpeko, Leon, & Charizard Feature In Pokémon Masters EX

A new kind of Sync Pair is coming to Pokémon Masters EX with one of the most iconic Pokémon of all time. He's the fire-breather that turned the Pokémon TCG upside down. He's the winged beast that kicked off 25-year-long love of Fire-types in the Pokémon universe. That's right: we're talking Charizard.
