Basic Battle Rules

Pokemon Let

Battling is an essential part of Pokemon gameplay. This allows you to improve the Pokemon that you have and earns your money and items you will need to progress.

Battle Using The Pokemon You Have

To battle, you will need to use Pokemon that you have caught and raised to form your team.

A Maximum of 6 Pokemon Can Be In A Team

Pokemon Let

You can assign a maximum of 6 Pokemon to your battle team. It's not necessary to use all of the Pokemon during a battle. You can also see how many Pokemon opponents have on their team.

Turn-Based Battle

You and your opponent will take turns commanding your Pokemon during a battle. Only one action can be performed per turn.

Pokemon On The Field Can Be Switched

If you feel that another Pokemon on your team will perform better in the battle, you can call back the one on the field and switch it with another Pokemon on your team.

Take Advantage Of Type Compatibility

Your attacks will be more effective if the opponent is weak against your Pokemon's attack type. You can also use this to your advantage by using Pokemon that are resistant to your opponents' attacks.

Rewards For Winning Battles

Exp. Points

Exp. Points serve to level up the Pokemon that you have on your Battle team even when you did not bring them out during the battle.

Receive Money And Items

Money is the common reward for winning a Pokemon battle. On rare occasions, some opponents will also give Items as rewards.

Some Trainers Will Give TMs Too

TMs are used to teach Pokemon new moves. Use of TMs can only be used for type-compatible Pokemon.

Difference From Previous Versions

No Random Pokemon Encounters

You will no longer need to worry about getting attacked by wild Pokemon while walking around. You'll only encounter Pokemon if you walk up to them directly.

2-Player Mode Is Available

This is the first Pokemon game that will allow 2 players to play cooperatively. Just hand over the second Joy-Con to a friend and they can join your adventure!
