Niantic has launched the official GO Battle League leaderboard for Pokémon GO. The developer has also kicked off GO Battle Day: Marill. Read on below to learn more:

View globally ranked Trainers with the GO Battle League leaderboard, and celebrate with GO Battle Day: Marill!

Here’s what you can expect from the GO Battle League leaderboard.

  • It will show the top five hundred Trainers in the world and their Trainer nicknames, teams, ranks, ratings, and total matches.
  • Rankings are based on the previous day’s in-game ratings for Trainers rank 7 and up. The leaderboard is scheduled to update between approximately 8:00 p.m. UTC and 10:00 p.m. UTC every day. (Note that leaderboard updates may be delayed by things such as maintenance.)
  • Trainers with active disciplinary action or inappropriate Trainer nicknames will be excluded without prior notice.

Celebrate the launch of the GO Battle League leaderboards with GO Battle Day: Marill on Sunday, April 12, 2020! This brandnew event will feature Marill, the Aqua Mouse Pokémon, and activities related to the GO Battle League. This Water- and Fairy-type Pokémon evolves into Azumarill—a popular Pokémon in the Great League!

The more GO Battle League battles you win from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. local time during the event, the more chances you’ll have to encounter Marill! During this time frame, Marill will appear as a guaranteed Basic Reward after your first and third wins. Use a Premium Battle Pass, and Marill will appear after every win as a guaranteed Premium Reward! Trainers will also receive 2× Catch Stardust for catching Marill during this time period. Please note that the encounters that serve as rewards for ranking up, such as the Pikachu Libre encounter at rank 10, will stay the same.

In addition, all day on GO Battle Day: Marill (from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. local time), you’ll be able to complete 20 sets of GO Battle League battles, up from the regular 5 sets, for a total of up to 100 battles. A new Event Box is also now available to purchase with five Premium Battle Passes, two Incense and two Lure Modules for 480 PokéCoins via the in-game shop.
