The dynamic duo of Ash and Pikachu is finally playable in the form of a video game. In a new update to the Pokémon Masters mobile game, you can take control of the most famous partners in the entire franchise.
How to play as Ash and Pikachu in Pokémon Masters
Ash Ketchum, the main character of the Pokémon anime, introduced in a new update, has been made playable for the first time in the franchise’s decades-long history. Along with his beloved Pikachu, this is a highly anticipated addition to the mobile game.
Ash and Pikachu are the latest additions to the mobile game. As an electrically synchronized pair, the two can obviously use B Thunderbolt and Best Buds 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt moves to win battles.
Unfortunately, you can’t pull the couple together forever. As it turns out, the two are only included in the game’s wishing pulls until 11 p.m. PT, 16, 2022. We wish you every success!
While the introduction of Ash and Pikachu is great, it’s not the only addition to the game. There are even quite a few new sync pairs joining them in Pokémon Masters.

What else is coming?
If you’re deep in the Pokémon fanbase, you’ll love these all-new sync pairs added to Masters. The mobile game will now take advantage of new versions of existing characters, adding even more spice to the game.
As of today, Sinnoh’s champion Cynthia joins the game, along with her Lucario, in a Sygna suit. Additionally, Sygna Suit Red & Pikachu will join the game on August 31.
Red and Pikachu also have a new trick up their sleeve. The Kanto trainer can somehow make use of Dyanamaxing, a feature from the Galar region. What has he encountered on his travels?
What is the Trainer’s Lodge?
Also, Pokémon Masters now has a new mechanic: the Trainer’s Lodge. This simple new mechanic allows you to befriend trainers. Plus, it’s a new way to earn fun new rewards.
Of course, this means new login rewards. If you log in every day between today and September 13, you will get a bonus of 3,000 gems. Plus, if you sign up before October 13, you’ll get an additional 3,000.
Pokémon Masters is available as a free-to-play game for Android…and the others. Get it here!
