The subject of this article has no official English name. The name currently in use is a fan translation of the Japanese name.
This article is incomplete. Please feel free to edit this article to add missing information and complete it. Reason: Does Endless Battle have difficulties? Do the promotional cards have separate Endless Battle challenges? Shadow Pokémon Trainer moves. Also needs images.
The (Japanese: カードｅルームCard e Room) is a room located through the left door in the lobby area of Phenac Stadium in Pokémon Colosseum. In non-Japanese versions of the game, the room is sealed and cannot legitimately be accessed. In the Japanese game, it can only be entered after completing the main story.
There are two modes of battle that can be chosen after entering the Virtual Capsule: Panel Battle and Endless Battle. The Endless Battle mode can only be unlocked by completing the Panel Battle mode.
In Panel Battle mode, VR Trainers are faced by scanning Trainer cards into the e-Reader, and as the player defeats different VR Trainers, a panel for that Trainer is filled in. Trainers that have been defeated cannot be re-challenged in this mode. This mode also has three difficulty levels—Easy, Normal, and Difficult—which the player must progress through by defeating every Trainer in the current difficulty level.
Special bonus VR Trainers will also appear to challenge the player. The regular and promotional cards act differently in this respect. The Double Battle e cards and the two promotional cards are treated as three separate Panel Battle challenges, switchable by scrolling vertically. With the regular Double Battle e cards, when a row (a pack of a given color) is completed in a given difficulty, a bonus VR Trainer will appear to challenge the player. With the promotional cards, the bonus VR Trainer only appears after the player has defeated the card's featured Trainer in each of the three difficulty levels.
Each VR Trainer defeated in the Panel Battle mode earns the player Poké Coupons, with the bonus VR Trainers also awarding an additional item.
The Endless Battle mode is unlocked after defeating the most difficult Panel Battle Trainers.
Endless Battle is an endurance challenge against all 20 VR Trainers from the regular Double Battle e cards. Every five wins, the player will receive a large amount of Poké Coupons.
Shadow Pokémon Trainers
After all the regular Double Battle e card Trainers of a given difficulty are beaten in Panel Battle mode, the player will be challenged by a real Trainer outside of the Virtual Capsule who owns a special Shadow Pokémon which can only be snagged here. These Shadow Pokémon also count towards the number of Shadow Pokémon the player has caught.
