Compete in the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Ranked Battles September Season

Earn in-game rewards by leading your strongest Pokémon against players from around the world.

The new season of Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Ranked Battles has begun and will run throughout September 2020. Test your Trainer skills in head-to-head battles with players around the world, move up the global leaderboards, and earn helpful in-game rewards.

Only Pokémon obtained in Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield or those with the battle-ready symbol are eligible. Pokémon from previous games in the Pokémon series can receive the battle-ready symbol by speaking with the character next to the door in the center of the Battle Tower. Moves that cannot be used in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will be forgotten when the battle-ready symbol is applied to your Pokémon. Once forgotten, these moves cannot be remembered.

The Ranked Battles September Season (Season 10) will follow the Series 6 regulations, which means the following top-ranked Pokémon from the July season (Season 8) are not permitted: Venusaur, Gyarados, Porygon2, Tyranitar, Torkoal, Hippowdon, Magnezone, Togekiss, Excadrill, Whimsicott, Incineroar, Mimikyu, Rillaboom, Cinderace, Indeedee, and Dragapult.

To start a Ranked Battle, follow these steps:

  • Open the X menu.
  • Select VS.
  • Select Battle Stadium.
  • Select Ranked Battles.
You can press the Y Button to see an overview of Ranked Battles before you begin your match.

Before battle, you'll be matched up with other players of similar rank to ensure even competition. When the season concludes, the higher the tier you finish in, the greater your in-game rewards. The September Season rewards include the following.

Master Ball Tier
  • Gold Bottle Cap ×3
  • 600 Battle Points
  • Armorite Ore ×30
Ultra Ball Tier
  • Gold Bottle Cap ×1
  • 300 Battle Points
  • Armorite Ore ×10
Great Ball Tier
  • Bottle Cap ×3
  • Ability Capsule ×1
  • 100 Battle Points
  • Armorite Ore ×5
Poké Ball Tier and Beginner Tier
  • Ability Capsule ×1
  • 50 Battle Points
  • Armorite Ore ×1
Once the season is over, you can collect your in-game rewards. Remember—you will need to finish at least one match with a win or loss during the September season to be eligible for rewards at the end of the season. To receive your in-game rewards, follow these steps:

  1. Open the X menu.
  2. Select Mystery Gift.
  3. Select Get a Mystery Gift.
  4. Select Get Battle Stadium Rewards.
Have fun battling, and check back later for more Ranked Battle season news!

Ranked Battles Series 6—Featuring Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield—Is Here!

Image

Learn everything you need to know to compete in a new Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield battle series.

Test your Trainer skills in head-to-head battles with players around the world in Ranked Battles Series 6, kicking off Monday, August 31, 2020, at 9:00 p.m. PDT and ending Saturday, October 31, 2020, at 4:59 p.m. PDT. Here's what you need to know in order to have a successful series.

Eligible Pokémon
This battle format will ensure new Pokémon have a chance to shine! In Ranked Battles Series 6, competitors won't be permitted to use Pokémon that reached the top 10 for Single Battles or Double Battles in Pokémon HOME's Pokémon rankings, which track the Pokémon most commonly seen on Battle Teams along with their moves, Abilities, and held items. Venusaur, Gyarados, Porygon2, Tyranitar, Torkoal, Hippowdon, Magnezone, Togekiss, Excadrill, Whimsicott, Incineroar, Mimikyu, Rillaboom, Cinderace, Indeedee, and Dragapult won't be available in Series 6, so Trainers will have to come up with all-new strategies as they battle up the ranks. This is an exciting opportunity to see some less commonly used Pokémon shine in battle.

Otherwise, Galar Pokédex No. 001–397, Isle of Armor Pokédex No. 001–210, Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Rowlet, Dartrix, Decidueye, Litten, Torracat, Popplio, Brionne, and Primarina may be used. All eligible Gigantamax Pokémon may be used.

Only Pokémon obtained in Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield or those with the battle-ready symbol are eligible.

Timers
Total Time: 20 minutes
Player Time: 7 minutes
Preview Time: 90 seconds
Turn Time: 45 seconds

Battle data and results will be provided to Nintendo Co., Ltd., and The Pokémon Company (and their subsidiaries). Players engaging in the following activities may receive penalties and be restricted from participating in future online events.

  • Use of unauthorized methods to alter game save data, use of Pokémon that have data altered via altering code, or use of Pokémon created via altering code
  • Significantly large number of disconnects during battle, from when an opponent has been decided to when the match results have been fully sent to the server (please ensure a stable connection environment when connecting to the internet)
  • Troubling behavior that could affect other participants or make others feel unpleasant
  • Actions that would obstruct battles and operations, such as hacking
  • Registering with incorrect information or impersonating another player
  • Other actions that operation hosts determine to be inappropriate
