The '''Battle Frontier''' (Japanese: '''バトルフロンティア''' ''Battle Frontier'') is a special post-[[Pokémon League]] area featured in the [[Generation IV]] games, {{game|Platinum}}, {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s|HeartGold, and SoulSilver}}. It is similar to the Battle Frontier featured in {{game|Emerald}}, the [[Hoenn]] {{Gdis|Battle Frontier|III}}. The key difference is the number of facilities and the challenges they hold.
This Frontier is found in two regions[[region]]s, [[Sinnoh]] and [[Johto]]; each region's Frontier is identical in facilities and appearance. The Sinnoh Frontier is located north of the [[Fight Area]] in the place of {{game|Diamond and Pearl|s}}'s {{si|Battle Park}}. The Johto Frontier is located west of [[Olivine City]], where {{game|Crystal}}'s {{Gdis|Battle Tower|II}} was located. Access to Johto's Frontier is through the [[Frontier Access]]. Each of the facilities in the Battle Frontier has a leader, the [[Frontier Brain]], who may be challenged after certain {{wp|Winning streak (sports)|winning streaks}} have been made through their respective facilities. Defeating the Frontier Brains will earn the {{player}} [[commemorative print]]s.
Only two of the facilities had been featured in Pokémon games prior to the Battle Frontier's debut in Platinum. The [[Battle Tower]] and Battle Factory were both present in Emerald; the Battle Tower has been in every game since its debut in Crystal, excluding FireRed and LeafGreen, which featured a similar facility called [[Trainer Tower]].
