Colosseum Battle Mode:
- Colosseums: There are 11 Colosseums (Battle Arenas) altogether throughout Poketopia. The first 10 Colosseums can be found in the Colosseum Battle mode (many will need to be unlocked by playing through the others). There is also a special Colosseum that can only be played in DS Battle Mode.
- Colosseum Masters: These excellent Trainers are also first-class entertainers whose amazing battle performances always attract a large crowd.
- Colosseum Leaders: With their awesome strength and skills, Colosseum Leaders rank right behind Colosseum Masters. They all wear characteristic Pokemon-themed costumes.
Nintendo DS Battle Mode: This multiplayer mode is for those who also own Pokemon Diamond or Pokemon Pearl as well as Nintendo DS systems. Four players can get together and battle while using their very own Pokemon from their Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl games. All players use the DS as a controller in this mode. The same battle interface from Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl is used while battling with friends, so it’s very easy for players to pick up.
Wi-Fi Battles: Players battle against their friends via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection after exchanging Friend Codes. Players also can battle against anyone in the world using Pokemon Battle Revolution’s Wi-Fi Rank system, which automatically matches players with Trainers of similar skills and strength.
Battle Passes and Trainer Customization: Players can create and customize their own Battle Pass by transferring their favorite Pokemon from Pokemon Diamond or Pokemon Pearl onto the Pass. They can then save the Battle Pass to their Wii Remote and take it to a friend’s house to battle them. There are three male and three female Trainers players can use to customize their Battle Passes. They can further personalize their Trainer with custom battle text for winning and losing scenarios. They can obtain more gear and accessories for their characters by winning battles or purchasing them at the Shop using Poke Coupons (awarded after Colosseum battles).
