The latest game in the Pokémon universe, Pokémon Masters, is officially launching worldwide this Thursday. Ahead of its release, The Pokémon Company has shared some new info.

You can check it all out for yourself in the needlessly long and grating video above, but there are a few key reveals to pick out here. Firstly, playing the game during its launch period will give you the chance to net useful in-game items; from launch until 16th October, you can get enough gems to scout new sync pairs up to ten times and you'll also be able to complete missions to get other goodies.

The video also touches upon the concept of Training and Story Events, which are limited-time affairs available to check out. In a Story Event, you'll be able to go on an adventure with the featured trainer, battle alongside sync pairs who you haven't found in the main story yet, and earn extra rewards upon completion. The trailer shows off Blue's Story Event which runs through September, noting that it'll pop up again at a later time if you happen to miss out.
