Plus, you can use duplicate Pokémon and duplicate items, and every Pokémon will be set to Lv. 100 for the duration of these Single Battle clashes. The battles will take place in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, and Pokémon brought in via Poké Transporter are permitted in battle. The complete list of eligible Pokémon will be available in the competition regulations.
