It will run until April 7th at 10:59 PM Pacific. The event will task players with taking an adventure with Cyrus and Sygna Suit Cynthia. Completing this event will allow the sync pair of Cyrus & Palkia join their teams.
In addition to these new events, DeNA offered an update on the Leon and Marnie Retweet Rally. Pokémon Masters EX announced in their press release:
A Retweet rally was held in early March, in which if enough players retweeted the trailer on the game's official Japanese Twitter(@pokemas_game) and English Twitter (@PokémonMasters) pages, 3,000 Gems and 60 5★-Guaranteed Scout Tickets (enough to use the 5★-Guaranteed Scout two times) would be distributed to all players. The player community easily made this happen, and as a result, all players will receive these rewards, available to collect from now until Mach 30 at 10:59 p.m. Pacific Time. Note that these Gems are separate from the 10,000 Gems being given away via various log-in bonuses between February 25 at 10:00 p.m. Pacific Time until March 30 at 10:59 p.m. Pacific Time.
