Single Battle is a battle mode introduced in Generation I for battles through the Pokémon Cable Club. As the name suggests, in Single Battle mode, players will battle with only one Pokémon sent out at any one time.
As Double Battles were only introduced in Generation III, Single Battle mode was the only option for battle in Generation I and II. From Generation III onwards, it can be selected together with other options such as the Double Battle mode in the Pokémon Cable Club Colosseum.
In Generation IV, the Pokémon Cable Club Colosseum was renamed to the Pokémon Communication Club Colosseum.
