Potential crossover ideas
Post your ideas for potential crossover events here.
  • The Anime is of course an obvious place for expansion. Even if they don't go with Anime versions of Gym Leaders and Champions, Ash is almost guaranteed. But Anime-only characters like Jessie and James, Casey, and the various friends and antagonists from the Movies would all bring more variety and interesting combinations to the game.
    • Confirmed! Jessie is the first anime character to appear, and James and Meowth have as well.
  • Orre or bust. This is the closest chance of reappearing it ever had in almost 15 years.
    • That may be out of Nintendo’s control, considering Genius Sonority owns the trademark of Orre.
  • Potentially the Adventures Manga and it’s version of the protagonists. The best guess is putting in Yellow or Emerald because they have no counterpart from the games.
  • A crossover with Pokémon GO, with Professor Willow, Blanche, Spark, and Candela as available sync pairs.
    • The Legendary Birds aren't in the games yet. The three Go Team Leaders could use them.
      • In addition, the Galarian Forms of the Legendary Birds could be used by the Team Go Rocket Admins.

  • Tim Goodman and Detective Pikachu, either from the game or the movie.
  • Pipe dream here: Digimon crossover event. Imagine all the awesome sync pairs, possibly even cross-franchise ones.

Possible Sync Pairs

NOTE: As of Leon & Charizard's release, characters can potentially have overlapping Pokemon species, so any examples thereof do not automatically Joss anything.

  • Kanto (Gen I/Gen III/Gen VII)
    • Sabrina and Alakazam
      • Confirmed.
    • Leaf/Green and Jigglypuff/Wigglytuff or Clefable or Blastoise
      • All jossed; She actually has Eevee. Though her Sygna Suit form has a Venusaur,so the Blastoise one is also Jossed.
    • Giovanni and Nidoking or Rhydon/Rhyperior (will release alongside Team Masters Rocket event)
      • Semi-jossed. Team Rainbow Rocket Giovanni gets Mewtwo. Because he is a Walking Spoiler.
      • Regular Giovanni will make appearances later, in Main Story then?
    • Advertisement:
    • Copycat and Ditto or Banette
    • Karate King and Hitmonlee or Hitmonchan
    • Erika (Johto version) and Bellossom
    • Chase and Partner Pikachu
    • Elaine and Partner Eevee
    • Trace and Cubone/Marowak

  • Johto (Gen II/Gen IV)
    • Chuck and Poliwrath
    • Morty and Drifblim
      • Confirmed.
    • Silver and Typhlosion/Sneasel
      • Semi-confirmed for the latter; he replaces it with Ho-Oh once the event is over.
    • Youngster Joey and Rattata/Raticate (Master of None Joke Character)
      • Maybe. The egg feature allows the player to use several hatched Kanto Pokemon, and Rattata/Raticate is one/are two of them. However, the Zubat, Bellsprout, and Machop lines are as well, and Koga, Ramos, and Bruno respectively use them.
    • Archer and Weezing (because Karen already has a Houndoom)
      • Weezing overlaps with James.
    • Ariana and Arbok
      • Arbok overlaps with Jessie.
    • Falkner and Hoothoot/Noctowl
      • Jossed. Falkner gets Swellow.
    • Advertisement:

      • Confirmed.
    • Eusine and Suicune

  • Hoenn (Gen III/Gen VI)
    • May and Blaziken or Swampert
      • Semi-overlap; MC has Torchic, which still has yet to be able to evolve.

    • Brandon and Regigigas/Regirock/Regice/Registeel
      • Averted for Regirock, the MC gets that.
    • Anabel and Snorlax or Latios
      • Her default suit will be the Salon Maiden one from Emerald, while her SM/USUM outfit is going to be the Sygna Suit.
      • Sygna Suit Anabel could be a Power Up Let Down by having Snorlax instead of Latios.
    • Zinnia and Altaria (because Winona uses Pelipper instead and Drake already has Salamence)
      • Jossed: Zinnia gets Rayquaza instead, and she had another Salamence before Rayquaza. Lisia was revealed to have Altaria during the Summer 2020 event.
      • The Daily Rotation events awarding BP Vouchers lets Zinnia team up with Salamence again.

    • Dahlia and Ludicolo

    • Saturn and Toxicroak

  • Anime
    • Ash Ketchum and Ash-Greninja (Though he will have Pikachu on his shoulder.)
    • Jessie and Arbok or Wobbuffet (if Ariana got an Arbok)
      • Confirmed with Arbok.

    • Victor (Easter) and Cinderace (if his regular got a Zamazenta)

Paulo's Rockruff will eventually evolve into Dusk Lycanroc
As Kukui already has the Midday form and Olivia has the Midnight form, this would allow all of Lycanroc's forms to appear.

Future story chapters to feature:
  • Looker investigates more Team Break scandals in Pasio.
    • Jossed; team break is finally defeated in Chapter 28.
  • Colress studies the Sync Stones.
  • Guzma, Plumeria, Archie and Maxie appear as random tourists.
    • Guzma and Plumeria semi-confirmed; Liza wants to learn more about Pokemon battling from Guzma, but he repeatedly refuses. He gives in only when Drake and Plumeria goad him into helping her.
  • Guzma and N participate in the PML.
    • Jossed with Guzma.
  • Todd Snap photographs Pasio, its trainers, and their Pokémon.
  • Team Masters Rocket invades Pasio.
    • Pokémon Masters League becomes Team Masters Rocket's Headquarters.
    • Tricia, Trista and Trinnia get replaced by Team Masters Rocket Grunts.
    • All regular trainers in Pasio turn out to be Team Masters Rocket grunts.
    • Team Rainbow Rocket is renamed Team Masters Rocket, and the whole Pasio region is owned by Giovanni, not Lear.
    • Non-Rainbow Rocket Giovanni will be unlocked as a Sync Pair after you beat him.

Team Break theories
Since Lear is very opposed to Team Break as himself, I suspect there must be some theories behind Team Break and why there are no wild Pokémon in Pasio.

To allow characters from Galar to Dynamax/Gigantamax their Pokémon, Eternatus will appear as either a legendary event or legendary arena boss.
For the sake of balance, they would last only 3 moves; this would be explained in-universe as a result of Eternatus appearing in Pasio only recently.
  • Potentially Jossed, since Zacian's Behemoth Blade deals extra damage if you have a Sync Buff, which could hint that Gigantamax Forms will only be seen during the usage of Sync Moves.
