To test the Pokémon players had caught in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, the Battle of Hoenn Online Competition was the first tournament players could compete in online.

The competition used the Single Battle format and players could register 3 to 6 of their level 1–100 Pokémon to their Battle Box. Pokémon automatically became Level 50 during battles. A 30-minute time limit for each match was automatically enforced in-game, beginning at the start of each battle. If the outcome had not been determined when the time limit expired, the game automatically applied tiebreakers to determine a winner. At the beginning of each battle, players had 90 seconds to select their Pokémon to battle with. At the beginning of each turn, players had 60 seconds to select a move or change Pokémon in battle. If a player had not made his or her selections at the end of this period, the game automatically made selections for the player. Players could only play 10 rounds per day.
