Champion Stadium

The Champion Stadium (Japanese: チャンピオンバトル Champion Battle) is a special battle area in Pokémon Masters EX. Introduced on August 28, 2020, shortly after the release of Version 2.0.0, it features battles against the Elite Four of a region, followed by the corresponding Pokémon Champion. The Champion can only be challenged after all members of the Elite Four are defeated.

The Hard difficulty level is unlocked after completing the Normal difficulty. The battles include special parameters that can affect both allies and opponents; these parameters change after each victory, and they are randomly selected each week. The battle against the Champion includes one set parameter and one that is selected from the parameters used in the Elite Four battles. Additionally, sync pairs used to defeat an Elite Four member cannot be used in later battles during a challenge The challenge can only be attempted on Hard difficulty or higher once for one region each week, until the full medal for that region is completed, in which players gain access to the Reset feature. The Pokémon used by the opponents and their weaknesses can change week to week.

Players can obtain Champion Spirits and 5★ Power-Up Tickets from completing battles. Medals can also be earned for each difficulty level above Normal and each region by achieving Hall of Fame status with all sync pair types.

Master Mode was introduced to Champion Stadium on December 28, 2020, along with the Johto Challenge. Once all 18 sync pair types have been entered into the Hall of Fame for a region, players can replay the challenge after completing it for the week, with various options available to give the advantage to opponents. Players earn points for completing battles, based on the selected options, and they earn rewards for reaching point total thresholds.

Kanto Challenge

The Kanto Challenge was the first Champion Stadium challenge, available starting from August 28, 2020 to December 28, 2020. The second run was available from February 1, 2021 to March 1, 2021. The third run available from May 3 to 31, 2021.
