The story of Skylanders Imaginators takes place long ago when the Ancients used a mysterious power known as "Mind Magic" to create everything in Skylands. With it, they conjured into existence anything that they could imagine! However, they soon learned that in the wrong hands, it could be very dangerous, and so they sealed it away so that it could never be misused. After discovering this ancient secret, Kaos has unleashed the power of "Mind Magic" into Skylands once again - and he is using it to create an unstoppable army of Doomlanders, the likes of which have never been seen! Now it's up to Portal Masters to create Skylanders Imaginators from their own imagination and stop Kaos and his evil Doomlanders before it is too late. And to help train them, Eon is sending the greatest mystic warriors of all time - the Senseis!


For new playable characters there are 20 brand new Skylander Senseis as well as 11 former villains. Along with their element each Sensei will also have a Battle Class from a list of ten: Smasher, Knight, Ninja, Bazooker, Quickshot, Sorcerer, Brawler, Sentinel, Swashbuckler, and Bowslinger.

The first set of characters to be revealed included King Pen, Golden Queen, and Tri-Tip. Here is a table containing all of the new Skylanders, click the + to see all the known variants:

"Sensei" is the collective name for the new set of Skylanders (the villains also function as Senseis), their Battle Class determines the types of attacks and weapons they use as well as which abilities they unlock for your Imaginators. They all have a new type of super attack called Sky-Chi that slowly fills up as you defeat enemies until it reaches a point where you can unleash it on your unsuspecting foes (quite similar to the ability Trap Masters had in the 3DS version of Trap Team).

Owning a Sensei of a particular battle class will unlock a Secret Technique for your Imaginators of the same class. As well as that they will each unlock an item and a weapon for use in customisation. Senseis will also be able to access areas known as "Sensei Elemental Realms".

Creation Crystal

Included in the Starter Pack is a Fire Creation Crystal, this allows you to create and store your very own custom Fire element Skylander. To create a Skylander of a different element you'll need to purchase a Creation Crystal of that element.

Be aware that once you select a Battle Class you can not change it on that Creation Crystal ever again. So choose carefully!

Starter Pack

In the Starter Pack you get the Water Sensei Master King Pen, the Earth Villain Golden Queen, and a Fire Creation Crystal. The portal included is identical to that of the Swap Force portal (some regions instead have a modified SuperChargers Portal without a trap slot).

There is also once again a Dark Edition of the Starter Pack, it contains three Dark variant Skylanders (King Pen, Golden Queen, and Wolfgang) and three standard Creation Crystals (Fire, Life, and Dark). The pack also comes with a Gold Imaginite Mystery Chest that unlocks some gear for your Imaginators.

And there is a "Crash Edition" that is only available on PlayStation 3 and 4, it has the same contents as the regular Starter Pack plus the Crash Bandicoot and Dr. Neo Cortex toys. The characters will be available in a separately sold Adventure Pack at a later date.


The game is only appearing on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and the Wii U. That means no Wii, 3DS, or Tablet versions this year.

Well I honestly don't know how many custom Skylanders I want to make now! I don't know where to begin? Should I just get 2 of each imagination Crystal? Or buy as many as I see? And I hope to god they don't have shortages on those things!

I think this is going to be the best skylanders game yet for me because it has tri tip (triceratop) my favourite dinosaur of all time plus the base looks awesome

If there no returning skylanders I think this is the last game ever. If it is I be very sad I really like this games

Yeah I did mean it looked similar to the SWAP Force Portal, not that it actually was the SWAP Force Portal, lol. My bad.
#68 S2 Swap Force 04:34:22 01/06/2016
Welp, now we know where all those ridiculous magical artifacts came from (come on, a Kernel that changes ur size, even if what it allowed you to do was cool), the Ancients just went ham with the mind magic

I'm so HYYYYYYYYPEEEED!!!!!!!!!!!
#67 SodaPopHD 04:25:54 01/06/2016
V It looks similar to the SWAP Force Portal, but I think it's the new portal for this game. Of course, it could also be placeholder art.

#66 SilverWolf2308 04:03:01 01/06/2016
I'm thinking if we have to buy the Villians, Traps won't work. Plus the portal people have spotted on the Starter Pack is SWAP Force Portal.
#65 PabloDaniel 04:01:16 01/06/2016

I hope traps still work tho, seriously, imagine having to buy all of the villains.

People definition of TBC is To Be Confirmed. TBA is To Be Announced which would be more appropriate as we're still waiting for the names to be announced, we don't know the names, there have been no speculations and therefore does not need TBC.....

To answer questions, look here: http://royalpharodox18.deviant...-Know-612450531

Sorry if this counts as advertising, but I thought I might post that to answer anyone's questions. With the sources I listed, it might not be EXACTLY accurate, but we'll see.

@Pikachu @Terrafin It's been stated countless times that there are no Revamps in this game...
#61 Pikachu11668 01:36:08 01/06/2016
