Pokémon Masters EX is adding another Sync Pair to the roster with the introduction of Blue and Aerodactyl. The Kanto trainer is getting its third Sync Pair in the game, along with Red’s second. Here is a complete breakdown of the unit and what players can expect from it.

Blue and Aerodactyl moveset

Blue and Aerodactyl come with three passive skills, which are mentioned below:

  • Rock Shift: All the Normal-type moves become Rock-type moves.
  • Combo Freebie 2: Has a 30% chance of making the next move free.
  • Endurance: When users enter the battle with full HP, the Endurance effect becomes active.

Blue and Aerodactyl moves are as follows:

  • Hyper Beam (4-gauge move): Deals damage between 223-267.
  • Double-Edge (3-gauge move): Deals damage between 167-200. However, the user takes 25% of the total damage dealt as recoil damage.
  • Ancient Power (2-gauge move): Deals damage between 47-56 and has a 10% chance of increasing the user’s Attack, Defense, Sp. Atk, Sp. Def, and Speed by one rank
  • Bonjour! (2 usages): Increases the user’s Attack and Sp. Atk by three ranks but lowers Defense and Sp. Def by one rank. Furthermore, if used by Mega Aerodactyl increases the Speed by three ranks.
  • Dire Hit All+ (2 usages): Increases the Critical-Hit Rate of all allied Sync Pairs by two ranks.
  • No Competiton Stone Edge (Sync move): Deals damage between 160-192 and Mega Evolves Aerodactyl.

Blue and Aerodactyl seem average at first glance, and rightfully so. The Sync Pair doesn’t boast crazy stats and fails to excel at any specific category across the board. However, it still packs decent damage, especially once it Mega Evolves. Furthermore, the ability to raise the Critical-Hit Rate of the entire team as a Striker unit makes it an ideal candidate for secondary Striker.

Should you pull for Blue and Aerodactyl

For free-to-play players, Blue and Aerodactyl shouldn’t be on the priority list. There are Sync Pairs present in the game that fill a similar role but perform better. That said, Blue is a popular character from the Pokémon series and will likely draw a lot of attention. Ultimately, it boils down to personal preference and playstyle.
