A few months ago, DeNA and The Pokemon Company released Pokemon Masters, a mobile title focused around teaming up with the franchise’s most famous trainers and their Pokemon.
While many were excited about the game when it was announced, it was subject to a fair share of criticism from players upon its release. This ranged from the lack of interesting rewards, the strange difficulty for some of the challenges, as well as numerous bugs.
Since then, Pokemon Masters producers Satoshi Sasaki and Tetsuya Iguchi have released a letter to fans acknowledging these concerns and promising that changes to the game are on the way. They have also said they will start posting regular updates through this “letter” format, with the next one due to arrive October 17th.

DeNA have put out a letter from the producer Satoshi Sasaki and Tetsuya Iguchi addressing many complaints from fans.
They have put forth an apology for the amount of problems the game has had, the small amount of content as they thought the current set-up and EX Challenge would be sufficient, but realise that EX Challenges are not for everyone and that they are sorry they brought the game to a point where there was little to do in it. They detail four different complaints that they commonly saw:
- Lack of content
- Rewards for stages not being enticing
- Level design not being amazing
- Game is difficult to understand
With this, they have promised that they are going to change direction with how the game will proceed in the future with more content, more attractive rewards for completing stages and aim to make it so that you can use your favourite Sync Pairs rather than necessarily the strongest for the situation.
They will work on this but state it will take time. They’ll provide periodic updates through letters, with the next one planned on October 17th. We’ll provide more details as they come.
