Earn Rewards in the Ranked Battles August Season

The August season of Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Ranked Battles has begun, and this month’s regulations are sure to shake up Trainers’ strategies. Once again, Trainers will be able to test skills in head-to-head battles with players around the world, move up the leaderboards, and earn in-game rewards.

Pokémon in either the Galar Region Pokédex or the Isle of Armor Pokédex that are caught, hatched from Eggs, or received as an official Mystery Gift are eligible for Ranked Battles, except for Mythical Pokémon and most Legendary Pokémon (Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion are permitted).

To start a Ranked Battle, select VS in the X menu, select Battle Stadium, and then select Ranked Battles. You can press the Y Button to see an overview of Ranked Battles before you begin your match. Before battle, you’ll be matched up with other players of similar rank to ensure even competition. When the season concludes, the higher the tier you finish in, the greater your in-game rewards.
