Pokémon Masters EX isn’t your traditional Pokémon game, with the mobile hit boasting quite a few new mechanics to complement its unique style of thre vs. three gameplay.

With synergy being so important, crafting the right team of three Pokémon is the main key to victory, and stats are more important than ever. While each Pokémon already has a variety of skills and stats, players have the ability to add bonus passive skills through the Lucky Skills system.

There are a few ways to gain these skills, but the most common is through using Lucky Cookies. There is a range of different cookies, each providing their own unique passive skill for battle.

How to use Lucky Cookies

You’ll find the Cookies that you’ve earned inside your bag.

To use them, navigate to the Team tab. Choose moves and skills, then select the Sync Pair you’d like the item to be used on. At the bottom of the screen, you’ll notice a Lucky Skill tab, select this and choose the item you’d like to use in your inventory to try your luck at getting a new skill.

Before you can use your Cookies on a Sync Pair, you’ll need to be at least level 80 and have the right amount of Lucky Scrolls. This number will change depending on the rarity of your Sync Pair.
