Battle against trainers from all over the world in the Pokemon Battle Stadium in Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield! Read on to learn more about how this new feature works and what it is.
The Battle Stadium allows you to engage in Poke Battles with trainers from all over the world. Modes such as Rental Teams and Online Competitions will also add a new way to spice up the Pokemon Battles you know and love.
You must have a Nintendo Switch Online membership to use the Battle Stadium. You do not need a Pokemon Global Link Account.
Ranked Battles allow you to use your favorite team and battle with various trainers all over the world. Battle for glory as you increase your rank and try to become the best there ever was.
You rank increases as you win more battles. Trainers with higher ranks will be much stronger than ones of lower ranks.
The trainers you are up against will have the same rank as you, which means you will always need to be prepared for anything! You can check your own ranking from within the battle stadium.
Pokemon HOME shows how the participants of a competition are placed, as will as the rankings of the Pokemon being used.
There are various tiers that encompass each rank. The top tier, known as the Master Ball Tier, is where the the most difficult battles will happen with powerful trainers.
Casual Battles are unranked battles that are just for fun. You can enjoy Pokemon battles without worrying about your rank changing based on whether you win or lose.
You can also use certain Legendary Pokemon that are not allowed in Ranked Battles.
Players can choose from Single Battle and Double Battle in Pokemon Sword and Shield. This applies to both Ranked and Casual Battles.
In Online Competitions, you get to take part in Special Battles that make use of a variety of rules and restrictions to see where you place among the participants.
You may even have a chance to join the Pokemon Sword and Shield World Championships if you do well enough.
Aim to be the best in all competitions with different regulations.
You can join competitions hosted by other players, and you can also host a competition yourself.
The host will decide the regulations used for Friendly Competitions.
Rental Teams allow you to use a pre-made team by obtaining someone else's ID online. These teams can be used in many different modes, including Ranked battles.
You can also create your own rental teams to share with other trainers. Fans of the Pokemon Stadium games from the N64 era will be excited to see this feature making a comeback!
You can rent up to five teams at once.
