Online Battles

In online battles, you can enjoy two kinds of battles—Rank Matches and Friendly Matches.

In Rank Matches, you can compete for the best ranking. The ranking will depend on the rank points you receive according to the outcome of your battle and how many wins you have.

In Friendly Matches, aside from being able to easily battle anyone, you can also battle with people who’ve entered the same VS Code as you.

Team Battle

Choose three Pokémon and create a team to battle against your opponent's team in a knockout competition! Each round, both players choose a Pokémon to battle with. At the end of the round, the HP and Synergy gauge of the winning Pokémon carries over. The team that knocks out all three of his or her opponent's Pokémon first will be victorious!

Daily Challenge

Battle with designated Pokémon in fun Daily Challenges! Complete a Daily Challenge to earn Skill points.

The battles will either be Basic or Team Battles. When you complete a Basic Battles Daily Challenge, the Pokémon you battled with and one other random Pokémon will earn Skill Points. After a Team Battle Daily Challenge, all three of the Pokémon on your team as well as one random Pokémon will earn Skill Points.
