The Battle Tower (Japanese: バトルタワー Battle Tower) is a battle facility located in Wyndon in Galar. It is owned by Leon. It was formerly known as Rose Tower when it was owned by Rose.

Challenges

Challengers compete at the roof of the Battle Tower to win as many battles as they can to increase their ranking. There are two formats: Single Battle and Double Battle, each with separate rankings independent of each other. Since the Battle Tower is built over a power spot, challengers may Dynamax their Pokémon in all battles. The challenge is designed to emulate a Ranked Battle system in which victories increase a Trainer's rank, but losses may potentially decrease it. Unlike battle facilities from previous generations, challengers do not start over after losing one battle. Instead, their ranking may fall after accumulating too many losses.

Restrictions

To participate, the player may register a Battle Team with six Pokémon of different species, and no two Pokémon can have the same held item. All battles are held under Flat Rules - any Pokémon above Lv. 50 will be set to Lv. 50. There are no special Pokémon banned from the Battle Tower, meaning Legendary Pokémon like Zacian and Mythical Pokémon like Zeraora are also eligible to participate.

Ranks and Tiers

There are eleven ranks and five tiers for challengers to advance in for either Single or Double Battles. As the player advances in rank, the opponents battled will become progressively more difficult. Unlike the online Battle Stadium ladder, once the player has obtained a rank and/or tier in the Battle Tower, it can never decrease.

The following lists the ranks that players can advance to and the tiers of each rank, with the number of wins required to advance. The listed rewards are given once the player rises to that rank and can only be obtained twice: once while playing Single Battles and once while playing Double Battles.

Leon

Leon will battle the player on the last battle before he or she advances to the next tier. Although his team is randomly selected from the following rosters, he will always use his Charizard and Gigantamax it at the first opportunity. After the player reaches Master Ball Tier, Leon will reappear after every tenth victory (including against himself), using a team from his Master Ball Tier roster.
