Casual Battles

These are low-stakes battles in which results are not recorded. One appealing feature about these battles is that you can use any Pokémon.​

Ranked Battles

In these battles, you will be able to test your battle skills against Pokémon Trainers from all over the world. Your rank will change depending on your battle results. Trainers are sorted into tiers based on their ranks. If you can reach Master Ball Tier, the topmost tier, you'll have a chance to vie to be the best Pokémon Trainer in the world in fierce battles.​

Online Competitions

These are competitions in which Trainers can battle with other entrants.​

•Official Competitions​

Various kinds of rules may govern these special competitions in which you compete to see how high you can place in the rankings.​

•Friendly Competitions​

In this format, you can hold your very own competition or join one set up by other Trainers.​

Rental Teams

This feature lets you easily borrow Battle Teams by inputting IDs that have been shared online. You’ll also be able to build your own Battle Team and make it available for Pokémon Trainers all over the world to use!​

Note: A paid Nintendo Switch Online membership is required to use the Battle Stadium. To use the Battle Stadium, you may need to install update data that may become available on or after the games' release date. Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield players cannot battle with Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet players.
