  Latias

During the first run of this escalation battle, it was the first time that HP varied significantly between non-boss levels. For example, Latias had less HP at Stage Level 161 (10,752) than it did at Stage Level 61 (12,936). Previously, HP had gradually increased even when the individual stage types, disruptions, etc. had changed.

  Delibird

Unlike the other escalation battles, Delibird's event was not titled "Escalation Battle", but its format was identical to them. Like in other escalation battles, items were rewarded to the player when they cleared certain level milestones; in contrast to other escalation battles, however, the stages in this event were generally rather easy. The stage was titled Incredible Item Stage (Japanese: アイテムゲットステージ Item GET Stage), "Rake In Some Items!". Despite Delibird being in a main stage, it was able to be caught during this stage, with the same catch rates as other escalation battle Pokémon.

Level MAX Challenge

Level MAX Challenge is special stage that can be considered a variation of escalation battle, in which the goal is to increase the level of a skill on the featured Pokémon to max. Similar to escalation battles, Level MAX Challenge increases its Stage Level each time the stage is cleared, and gives rewards for reaching milestone Stage Levels.

Additionally, each level of the stage will drop a predetermined amount of   Personalized Skill Boosters for the featured Pokémon, rather than dropping them at random. The total amount of   Personalized Skill Boosters dropped is exactly enough to max the level of the featured skill once the final reward milestone is cleared.

If the featured Pokémon's skill level has not yet been maxed after clearing the final milestone, or if the featured Pokémon's skill is swapped to a non-maxed one, then the stage can continue to be cleared for additional non-random   Personalized Skill Boosters.
