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.
All qualified participants in the Mega Melee competition will receive 50 Battle Points. Players must complete at least one battle to qualify.
