Location of Battle Chateau in Kalos.
Pokémon world locations

The Battle Chateau (Japanese: バトルシャトー Battle Chateau) is a two-floor building on Route 7 in Kalos where the player can have battles. The types of Trainers that will appear will depend on the noble rank that the player has achieved through their battles in the Chateau.

The Battle Chateau shares its background music theme with the Battle Maison. It is a remix of Battle Tower (Johto) from Pokémon Crystal, Diamond and Pearl, Pokémon Platinum, and HeartGold and SoulSilver.

Ranks

The Trainer ranks at the Battle Chateau are inspired by the noble ranks used by many European countries, including the French nobility.

The player starts out as a Baron or Baroness, depending on their gender, and advances through the ranks of nobility by defeating other noble Trainers. In the initial ranks of nobility, the player's rank is mainly determined by their number of wins, with wins against higher-ranked nobles counting for more than those against lower-ranked nobles.

As the player advances in rank, the number of Trainers that appear in the Battle Chateau at the same time steadily grows. Any Trainer that is of the same or lesser rank than the player may appear in the Battle Chateau.

Player rank Trainers in Chateau Rank requirement Points for defeating
a Trainer of this rank
Baron / Baroness 6 1
Viscount / Viscountess 7 5 points 2
Earl / Countess 8 30 points 3
Marquis / Marchioness 9 98 points Regular: 4
Gym Leader: 5
Duke / Duchess 10 295 points Regular: ?
Elite Four: ?
Grand Duke /
Grand Duchess
10 ??? points

Gym Leaders, the Elite Four, and Diantha are also part of the nobility, holding ranks of Marquis or Marchioness and higher. These Trainers will start to appear in the Battle Chateau after the player has beaten them in the main storyline.

Writs

As players rise in rank, there will be a greater access to more writs which can be issued by talking to the lady by the front door. Each writ has its own unique effect. All writs expire at midnight on the day that they are used. Several of the writs can be used at the same time. The silver, gold and black writs all stack together, for example.

Writ Effect Cost Rank first available
Writ of Invitation A new Trainer appears twice as often (once every 3 minutes).  50,000 Baron/Baroness
Silver Writ of Invitation A new Trainer appears six times as often (once every minute).  100,000 Marquis/Marchioness
Gold Writ of Invitation Increases battle winnings by 50%.  100,000 Earl/Countess
Writ of Challenge Increases the levels of Pokémon by 5 (consequently increasing battle winnings).  50,000 Viscount/Viscountess
Blue Writ of Challenge Decreases the levels of Pokémon by 10 (consequently decreasing battle winnings).  10,000 Duke/Duchess
Red Writ of Challenge Increases the levels of Pokémon by 10 (consequently increasing battle winnings).  100,000 Duke/Duchess

Trainers

A new Trainer will periodically replace one of the other Trainers in the Battle Chateau. This may happen when the player enters the Chateau or moves to a different room, as long as at least 6 minutes have passed since a Trainer was last replaced. If multiples of 6 minutes have passed, multiple new Trainers will appear. If the player is changing rooms when a new Trainer appears, the Trainer will be announced, but if multiple Trainers have appeared, only the most recent person will be announced.

When the Writ of Invitation is active, only three minutes must pass before a new Trainer can appear. When the Silver Writ of Invitation is active, only one minute must pass.

In the anime

Main series

 
The Battle Chateau in the anime

The Battle Chateau appeared in Breaking Titles at the Chateau!, in which Chester and Nico invited Ash and his friends to visit there. During their visit, Ash and his friends learned about the history of the Battle Chateau, and got to know about its ranking system. In the anime, ranks of Trainers are determined by the capes they wear when battling: white for Barons and Baronesses, blue for Viscounts and Viscountesses, green for Earls and Countesses, yellow for Marquises and Marchionesses, red for Dukes and Duchesses, and purple for Grand Dukes and Grand Duchesses.

Nico, who had already reached the Baron rank, battled against another Baron, Farrell, and won, upgrading his rank into Viscount. Ash then had a battle against Chester, and won, becoming a Baron as a reward. Soon after, Grant challenged Viola to a battle for the highest possible rank: Grand Duke/Duchess. Eventually, Grant's Onix emerged victorious over Viola's Surskit, earning Grant the title of Grand Duke.

The number of wins to achieve each ranking slightly differs in the anime from the games. To achieve Baron or Baroness ranking, the Trainer needs one victory. To become a Viscount or Viscountess, the Baron or Baroness needs ten wins.

Trivia

  • The Japanese names of the normal Trainers in the Battle Chateau are derived from various alcoholic beverages and mineral water brands, possibly a reference to how the term chateau can be used to refer to a wine-producing estate.
  • Baroness Francine's Flabébé has an altered cry; it actually uses the cry of its evolution, Floette.
  • The prize money coefficient for trainers here (reward divided by Pokémon level) is unaffected by their Battle Chateau rank, only by the underlying Trainer class of their appearance.
  • With the Black Writ of Challenge enabled, Grand Duchess Diantha becomes the Trainer with the highest-leveled Pokémon in the game, with Pokémon at level 80.
  • The team of every non-special Trainer in the Battle Chateau consists of Pokémon with identical EV yields, depending on their apparent trainer class. Maids and Furisode Girls give only HP EVs, Monsieurs give Attack, Madames give Defense, Rich Boys give Special Attack, Ladies give Special Defense, and Butlers give Speed.
  • If the player is female, Grand Dukes do not appear at all.
  • The Battle Chateau bears a remarkable resemblance to the Château de Chenonceau in the Loire Valley.
