The latest update for Pokemon Masters has gone slightly awry. There’s an in-game banner saying that a new Evolution Sync Story for Brendan and Treecko has been added. That means is that if you have that pair you should be able to evolve it into Grovyle and then once again to Sceptile. However, many users – including myself – are finding they don’t have that option just yet.
It was previously rumoured that this would be available on 31st October, not today, which might suggest that the in-game announcement was put out a day early. The Japanese Twitter account has acknowledged the issue and has said they are working on it. This means we can probably expect some free gems as compensation. We’ll be sure to update this post when the evolution stories are available.
Some of the changes listed in the latest update have appeared though. There’s been a slight alteration to how Evolution Sync Pair Stories appear in the Sync Pairs tab. Previously you had to reach certain levels before the game would inform you that you can take on that story.
Now it will list the mission as soon as you receive that Sync Pair and the story will just be locked off until you reach that level, instead of hiding it until then. I like this addition because there are some Pokemon with evolutions that you can’t evolve yet, so it eliminates any confusion there and saves you having to look it up.
There are also a few smaller adjustments to the game as well such as tapping a move on the Moves & Skills screen will now provide you with a description of it. Additionally, if you lose any battles you’ll be returned to the screen before that fight, whereas previously you’d be returned to the Pokemon Center.
