As with most games that have a collection element, the pucks in Pokémon Battrio have several levels of rarity across each expansion, as more powerful Pokémon are inherently rarer than weaker ones. Rarity in Battrio is displayed by featuring the designs of different [[Poké Ball]]s on the reverse of pucks, and their primary color schemes on the outer circumference on both sides. Each expansion features four core rarities: Normal, Super, Hyper, and Master, represented by a Poké Ball, Great Ball, Ultra Ball and Master Ball respectively. As the development of Battrio has continued, other Poké Ball designs have been used on special promotional pucks, or on secret pucks included in main expansions. Typically, all Hyper and Master pucks have holographic illustration. Some pucks, particularly in later Battrio 0 expansions had additional aesthetic enhancements such as translucent circumferences and glitter-treated circumferences.<br>
With the Battrio V upgrade, rarity is indicated by stars on the front and reverse of the pucks. Single rarity pucks have no additional features; Double rarity pucks have translucent spin colors and a holographic illustration; Triple rarity pucks have glitter-treated circumferences and a holographic illustration; Fourth rarity pucks have glitter-treated circumferences and a lenticular image illustration, giving a 3D effect; V rarity pucks also have glitter-treated circumferences and a lenticular image, but with a 'moving' attack. The table below lists the current rarities in Battrio.
====Puck colors and spin colors====
Introduced on pucks from Battrio V, pucks may have either a black or white base as opposed to the Poké Ball designs prior to the upgrade. Grouping pucks by their base color will determine which Legendary Pokémon is summoned if '''[[Advent (Battrio)|Advent]]''' is successfully triggered (see [[#Battling|Battling]]). Pucks with black bases will summon different Pokémon compared to those with white bases. Pucks also have colored segments at three points of the circumference, which denotes their spin color. Spin colors are either green, red, or blue. Grouping pucks by their spin color will allow the player to use '''Spin Attacks''' during the course of the battle. As with the base color, the spin color determines which Pokémon will be summoned upon a successful Spin Attack. From the ''{{Battrio|Burning Wings - Cold Fangs}}'' expansion onwards, Pokémon summoned for a Spin Attack may also inflict an added special effect, which share similarities with status ailments in the core games. These are listed below. TriplePucks rarityabove and FourthTriple rarity pucks do not to have base colors or spin colors. However, with the release of the ''{{Battrio|Sacred Sword Gathering}}'' expansion, scanning in a Triple rarity or above puck alongside two other pucks with the same base colors will result in the rarer puck adopting the same base color, allowing more powerful teams to ultilize Advent.
