Pokemon players are divided over popular Diamond & Pearl character Cynthia’s new look. The Sinnoh region champion got a major makeover in the Masters mobile game on August 17. 

Pokemon Diamond & Pearl released in 2006 on the Nintendo DS. The Gen IV title introduced players to the Sinnoh region for the very first time and has become a fan favorite.


One of the series’ most popular characters, Cynthia, also made her debut in the game. However, the heroine recently was given a new Sygna Suit design in Masters and it has the community divided.

Pokemon community torn over Cynthia’s new design

Pokemon Masters’ latest legendary event centers on Team Galactic leader Cyrus and Diamond & Pearl champion Cynthia. However, the debut trailer showed the Sinnoh region character sporting a new design.


According to the update, Cynthia’s new attire is called Sygna Suit and is based on her Dragon-type Pokemon Kommo-o. Her new look has her signature golden hair up in a bun, and her shirt has scale-like accessories hanging down.

Fans of the Nintendo series were immediately torn on the Champion’s new design. Over on Reddit, ‘Arrior_Button’ said, “I don’t like the design and her combo with Kommo-o. Her outfit looks more like a ‘cosplay.”‘ Another user compared her hair to beloved Animal Crossing character Isabelle: “She literally looks like Isabelle I thought this was a joke post at first.”

Over on Twitter, fans weighed in with similar thoughts such as ‘Heat_Rotom’ who tweeted, “I don’t like the new Cynthia, they killed her, I guess…” Another user stated, “I super don’t hate the idea of Sygna suits being cosplay it’s a fun idea! But Cynthia as a Kommo-0 is so ridiculous looking.”


While some reactions were negative, other players loved her new look. ‘Togekissies’ tweeted, “SYNGA SUIT CYNTHIA oh my god i need her.” Pokemon fan ‘heartofdestiny’ agreed and posted, “Gotta say, I really like Cynthia’s hairstyle in her Sygna outfit.”

Not all Pokemon fans were down on the new outfit.

While it seems Cynthia’s new Sygna Suit is divisive among the community, some fans speculate that this could be her new design if they ever create a remake of Diamond & Pearl.

Pokemon Go November Community Day rumors: Who will headline?

The Pokemon Go November Community Day is still a good month away, but that hasn’t stopped trainers speculating as to what the headliner could be.

November is of course the penultimate Pokemon Go Community Day of the year. It is also the last one in which Pokemon fans will try to predict the headliner.


That is because the December CD is traditionally a mega Community Day of sorts. It brings the previous headliners from that year and makes them all available in one event.

Presumably, it will be the same for 2020. It is a day in which Pokemon Go trainers of all levels do their best to make sure they don’t miss out on!


Before we get there though, we still need to find out what the 10th headliner of 2020 will be. That isn’t a typo, as there will only be 11 in total this year because March’s CD was canceled due to the global health crisis – you may have heard about it.

No vote for November?

Niantic have made it a habit of letting us decide which Pokemon headline Community Days in 2020. In fact, 5 of the 10 from 2020 have been decided via vote.

The latest two votes however, have decided the following two Community Days. With October already in place with Charmander, there is only November to decide.


While that doesn’t rule out another vote entirely, it would seemingly make it less likely November’s would be decided by one.


So, if it isn’t to be decided by us, who are the contenders. The one that first comes to mind is Snivy.

Ever since Piplup headlined in January, we haven’t had another starter, at least a new one. At the time it was expected Snivy would be the featured ‘mon for March, which would have been in line with Niantic’s pattern of alternating between starter and non-starters.


Snivy may have been delayed because the Pokemon Go developers realized they were running out of starter ‘mons to use. Of the released Pokemon in the mobile game, it is only the Gen 5 starters that haven’t headlined, although Gen 6’s introduction is expected soon. So, 10 months on from the last one, it could be time for the Unova grass-type starter.

Deino or Gible?

Deino and Gible are two of the more popular Pokemon in the entire franchise and have been rumored as headliners. Unfortunately, that is why either of them making an appearance may be wishful thinking.


Both are super rare spawns and putting them as a featured Pokemon for a Community Day would certainly take away from their current allure. Besides, Niantic likely knows they can rely on them to boost other events, even if they do remain rare spawn rates.

Hopefully, they will headline a Community Day at some point in the future but 2020 seems unlikely at best.

Other contenders

The other most likely candidates for November are Exeggcute and Starly. Both were previously revealed to be included in another vote which never materialized.

Bulbasaur and Magikarp were also in there but the latter has already headlined in 2020, and Bulbasaur seems an unlikely option outside of a vote.

The Pokemon Go CD will likely take place in the second half of November. The 22nd seems the most likely day as this would keep distance between the previous one and adhere to alternating Saturday and Sundays.
