Standard Battle Regulations Return to Video Game Battles in May

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield players can plan ahead for future Ranked Battles and tournaments.

Competitions using Ranked Battles Series 8 are just getting started, but it's not too early to start planning for Ranked Battles Series 9, starting on May 1, 2021. The new competitive video game format will be a return to the more standard regulations of play identical to Ranked Battles Series 7, with the more powerful Legendary Pokémon not permitted in battle. Mythical Pokémon will continue to be restricted. It might be a familiar format, but it's always exciting to see what new strategies will emerge!

Ranked Battles Series rules are the basis for core Pokémon video game competitions, whether they are Ranked Battles, Players Cup events, or in-person Championship Series tournaments. Some competitions and Ranked Battles Seasons can have modified or completely different rules, but these are the standard regulations for all Pokémon video game competitive play.

For a summary of all video game tournament rules, see below. You can also check out the Play! Pokémon Rules & Resources page to see complete Play! Pokémon VG rules and formats.

Eligible Pokémon

  • Pokémon need to have either the Galar symbol—showing that they were caught, received, or hatched in the Galar region or the battle-ready symbol, showing that they were transferred from another game and adapted to battles in the Galar region.
  • All Pokémon from the Galar Pokédex, the Isle of Armor Pokédex, and the Crown Tundra Pokédex, excluding the following Pokémon:

    Image

    and all Mythical Pokémon.
  • Pokémon with the Gigantamax Factor are permitted.
  • All Pokémon will be set to Lv. 50, including Pokémon below Lv. 50.
  • Duplicate Pokémon are not allowed.
  • Duplicate held items are not allowed.

Timer Regulations

  • Each battle begins with a 90-second Team Preview phase.
  • In each battle, players have the following time limits:
    • 7 minutes of Your Time
    • 45 seconds of Move Time
    • 20 minutes of Game Time
Look forward to battles using Ranked Battles Series 9 regulations starting May 1, 2021!

Players of Pokémon Sword and Shield can encounter Milcery in Max Raid Battles from February 11th, 2021 until February 14th, 2021.

Face Milcery and Earn Sweets in Max Raid Battles

Use the Sweets you earn during this Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Valentine’s Day event to evolve a Milcery into an Alcremie that can Gigantamax.

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield players will have a particularly sweet Valentine's Day this year. Until February 14, 2021, at 3:59 p.m. PST, you'll be more like to encounter Milcery in Max Raid Battles. These Max Raid Battles will reward you with all sorts of Sweets—including Star Sweets and Ribbon Sweets, which are only available during special events. When Sweets are held by a Milcery, they allow the little Cream Pokémon to evolve into different forms of Alcremie.

Any Alcremie you evolve from the Milcery you catch during this event will be capable of Gigantamaxing, so you'll want to take advantage of all the Sweets you earn. Be sure to keep your eyes open as you take on Max Raid Battles, too, because you'll have a small chance to encounter a Shiny Milcery during this Valentine's Day event!

For an opportunity to encounter these Pokémon in a Max Raid Battle, you'll need to connect your Nintendo Switch system to the internet through Y-Comm or by selecting Mystery Gift in the X menu, then selecting Get the Wild Area News. After that, whenever you see a pillar of light shining from a Pokémon Den, you can walk up to the Pokémon Den and interact with it to start a Max Raid Battle with a Dynamax Pokémon. This event does not affect the Pokémon encountered within Dynamax Adventures.

POKÉMON UNVEILS VIRTUAL MUSIC CONCERT WITH POST MALONE TO CELEBRATE 25TH ANNIVERSARY

Online Global Music Event to Take Place on Pokémon Day, February 27, as Part of P25 Music Program

Bellevue, Wash.—FEBRUARY 11, 2021— Pokémon unveiled plans today for a virtual music concert celebrating its 25th anniversary. The pop-culture brand broke the news with help from headliner and Pokémon fan Post Malone in a video that can be seen here: https://youtu.be/wtQx4R2M2iw/.

Taking place on Saturday, February 27—better known as Pokémon Day—the event will be an online party not just for Pokémon fans but for all music fans around the world. It will also serve as the launch activation for the franchise’s yearlong P25 Music program. The Pokémon Company International has teamed up with Universal Music Group to bring this concert and more music surprises to life throughout 2021 as part of P25 Music. P25 Music is a collaboration with some of music’s biggest names to create new songs, styles, and pop-culture moments, all through the lens of Pokémon. Pop icon Katy Perry was announced last month as the program’s premier artist.

“I’ve been a Pokémon fan for a long time, so the opportunity to headline the Pokémon Day concert celebrating 25 years is awesome,” said Post Malone.

The concert will be free to view on the official Pokémon YouTube channel, Pokémon’s official Twitch channel, and on Pokémon’s 25th anniversary website beginning at 7:00 p.m. EST / 4:00 p.m. PST on February 27. Pokémon will unveil more P25 Music details at the end of the concert, so fans will want to tune in for more upcoming collaboration surprises.

In anticipation of the concert, The Pokémon Company International will host several celebratory activations across the brand in the week leading up to the virtual music event. In addition to the previously announced Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto event on Saturday, February 20, The Pokémon Company International will distribute a special password on February 25 for players of the Pokémon video game franchise to add a special Pikachu to their Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games. In keeping with the music theme for the year, this Pikachu knows the move Sing, which it can’t ordinarily learn. On February 27, fans can tune in to Pokémon TV, either on the web or by downloading the app, for a curated selection of music-themed episodes of the popular Pokémon animated series as they prepare for the big Pokémon Day concert with Post Malone in the evening. Fans can expect more announcements that week from across the franchise.
