For those new to earning BP, the Battle Tower is a way to practice for online play while also earning some BP along the way. With every win in the Battle Tower you will receive a prize of 2 BP while ranking up will net a larger earning depending on the rank. From rank 1 to MAX you can receive 187 BP from each Single and Double battles for a total of 374 BP.
|1 ~ 3||3 BP|
|4 ~ 6||5 BP|
Introduced in the Isle of Armor DLC, Restricted Sparring is similar to the Battle Tower except you can only use Pokemon of the same typing. Each time you win Restricted Sparring with a new type, you'll receive 62 BP, making it worth going through each challenge. Completing all 18 challenges will get you a whopping total of 1,116 BP!
|1st time completing a type||30 BP|
One of the most efficient ways to obtain BP is by participating in Ranked Battles. Each time you go up a rank you will receive a BP reward, and if you succeed in reaching Ultra Ball or Master Ball rank, the prizes at the end of the season will also net you a large amount of BP. You can receive these BP prizes from both Single and Double battles to maximize your rewards!
|Poke Ball||50 BP|
|Great Ball||100 BP|
|Ultra Ball||300 BP|
|Master Ball||600 BP|

Another way to get BP is by participating in Online Competitions. These competitions last for three days and award 50 BP. Unlike Ranked Battles, you only need to participate in 3 matches to qualify for the Battle Points prize.
From time to time the Pokemon Company will put out special Mystery Gift Codes that can give a small amount of BP. Keep an eye out on our Mystery Gift page so you don't miss out on possible free BP!
Battle Points are the currency received from competitive-like play that can be used to purchase useful team building items like Mints, Bottle Caps, or Held Items. Some of these can be on the pricy side so be sure to choose wisely until you have enough BP to spare!
