Sword & Shield
Battles are done with the games Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield only.
All Pokémon will automatically have their level set to 50.
One Pokémon per team is allowed to Dynamax during the battle.
Players may not have two Pokémon with the same National Pokédex number on the same team. Using different forms of the same Pokémon (e.g. Rotom) breaks the clause since they share the same Pokédex number.
Each Pokémon on a player’s team can hold an item, though no two Pokémon may hold the same item.
