Here are the full details on the Pokémon Masters EX update:

  • Elio & Popplio! This Water-type support sync pair will be able to use the move Sing to put opponents to sleep, which will allow them to benefit from their passive skill and restore HP during a successful status move. It will also be able to use to move Sparkling Aria once Popplio evolves into its ultimate form of Primarina. They will be available starting tonight, April 16th at 11 PM Pacific time until May 1st, 2021 at 10:59 PM Pacific time.
  • More Alolan fun with Selene & Rowlet, a Grass-type strike sync pair.

This team is available right now and will run until May 1st at 10:59 PM Pacific.
