Random Matchup

Battle Random Trainers Around the World!

In previous Pokémon games, Trainers had to exchange Friend Codes with other players to battle over Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection. Now, with the new Random Matchup mode, players can battle others around the globe without needing Friend Codes!

A wireless broadband Internet connection and Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection are required to battle others around the globe.

  • One of the attendants at the Pokémon Center will help you get paired up for a random battle.
  • Use Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection to find another Trainer who's ready for a match.
  • Random Matchup is a great way to polish your battling skills!
