  2. By TM or HM
  3. As an Egg Move, through breeding
  4. From a character in the game
  5. Already known by a Pokémon received at an official Pokémon event or promotion



Items:
The rules listed are subject to change per season when playing special battles. For details, please check the Special Battle rules page for each individual season.
  • No two Pokémon may hold the same item during battle.
  • All items must have been acquired through normal play or received from an official event or promotion.
  • Soul Dew is not allowed.



Move Effects:
  • The move Nature Power will turn into Tri-Attack.
  • The move Secret Power has a 30% chance of paralyzing the opponent.
  • The move Camouflage changes the user’s type to Normal type.



Winner in Special Cases
  • If a player’s final Pokémon used Selfdestruct, Explosion, Destiny Bond, or Final Gambit, and both players’ final Pokémon faint as a result, the player who used the move loses that match
  • If a player’s final Pokémon used Double Edge, Volt Tackle, Flare Blitz, Take Down, Submission, Brave Bird, Wood Hammer, Head Smash, Struggle, or Wild Volt, Head Charge, or was holding Life Orb, and both players’ final Pokémon faint as a result, the player who used the move wins that match
  • If both players’ final Pokémon faint due to damage from a status condition or a weather condition, such as Hail or Sandstorm, the player whose Pokémon faints last wins the match. This includes the effects of Perish Song.
  • If a Pokémon’s Ability (such as Rough Skin, Aftermath, Liquid Ooze, or Iron Barbs) or held item (such as Rocky Helmet) results in each player’s final Pokémon fainting, the player whose Pokémon had the Ability or held item wins the match.



Turn Timer
  • The timer counts down while players are choosing moves.
  • If time runs out, a move is automatically chosen for you, so be careful.



Time Limit
The tournament timer automatically counts down during your battle. If time runs out before either player causes his or her opponent’s final Pokémon to faint, the winner of the match will be determined by the criteria below:

1) Remaining Pokémon
a. If one player has more remaining Pokémon than the other, that player wins the match
b. If both players have the same number of Pokémon remaining, the winner is determined by average percentage of HP remaining

2) Average Percentage of HP Remaining
a. If one player’s team has a higher average percentage of HP remaining, that player wins the match
b. If both players’ teams have the same average HP remaining, the result of the match is determined by total HP remaining

3) Total HP Remaining
a. If one player’s team has a higher total HP remaining, that player wins the match
b. If both players’ teams have the same total HP remaining, the match is a tie
