Take control of a Pokémon with the Synchrotron

There's nothing complicated about it. Simply take the Pokémon out, as if to send it into a quick battle. Then you're ready to go, hold L and press R to take control. You can end synchronisation in the same way.

From there, you can roam around the different zones and even battle wild Pokémon you come across. It's impossible to capture them, so be careful not to kill any Shiny if you collect them.

The Synchrotron also works in Club Union, so you can enjoy this unique gaming experience with your friends.
