Box management

But will this game have box-management features like Stadium 1/2 and Pokemon Box (unlike Colosseum/XD)? That's a pretty important factor. Czeano 20:37, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

No, all it does is copy all of your pokemon onto the game, you can't actually store them or transfer them between games. --Phred 15:08, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

Reception Desk, Hotel Astoria

Is it OK if I add a Reception part to the article and all the other articles on Pokémon video games? MudkipNDS 01:09, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

... uh, if you have a reliable source for that information, like reviews and such, then yes, you can add it. Just proceed with caution. It's a gray area that is difficult to be unbiased about. --Pie ~ 02:00, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Also I'd like to replace the Japanese box art with the American version. MudkipNDS 01:12, 29 July 2007 (UTC) Mario says (after 7/7/05 London incident) in bus...Mama -bleep-a!

That's generally standard procedure. --Pie ~ 02:00, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

More info.

This article should include more information about the items obtainable, costume items, etc. Or other pages holding this kind of information for PBR should be started. But, please, this article has no meat and/or bones. (Well, maybe bones.) -- MrWho 19:39, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

I agree about the adding information for the Gear. I'll try and remember to tomorow. (i just have to figure out how to format it) Volcronaperson 02:13, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Special Pikachu

The pikachu I received from battle revolution only knew surf and not volt tackle. Does anyone know why? - unsigned comment from Kirby3003 (talkcontribs)

Bonus Pokemon

Just bought PAL version of the game, and the listed codes for Electivire and Magmortar do not work. Can someone confirm?--Splunge 11:41, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

You must also use the dashes. it is case sensitive. i have confirmed it. --Tommy 23:01, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

You're definitely using the PAL version, as in the version just released in Australia? I've been using the dashes all along, plus all caps and numbers where appropriate, and it doesn't register. Possibly it's a different code (if any) for a different region? If there is no Australian code, then that's fine, I just think it should be added to the article if there is a regional difference to the bonus pokemon.--Splunge 13:17, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

OK, I've just added a line to this section to clarify that the codes are for the NTSC version of the game only. I've found other instances online of Australians unable to use these codes. --Splunge 10:44, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

I think it'd be even better if you explained what those versions were. (Constant 16:52, 31 December 2007 (UTC))

Whats NTSC and does the code work on English version?

Use the UK code on Australian versions. Zowayix 11:48, 4 March 2009 (UTC)


Is there a list of the customizable items, like hats and stuff? -Dean

Nope. Perhaps I could compile one. --Phred 05:08, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

PBR Friend Codes

Is there a way of seeing a list of Users with PBR Friend codes?? I know there is for the DS games and also for the Wii itself but not for PBR??? Phantom 12:39, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

We have one encompassing all Wii numbers and Wii FCs, same as we do for DS FCs. Just check who has the PBR code template on their page. TTEchidnaGSDS! 05:15, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Legendary ban question

During the time legendary Pokémon were banned from PBR WiFi, does anyone remember if they tried to upload a team of 5 non-legends and a Phione? If so, TELL US! It could solve the question of Phione's legendary status (or lack thereof) once and for all! -- Glitch and Official Pokémon. There is no real difference between the two. In my opinion, the two should be considered equal!-- quoted by Missingno. Master 02:46, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

I did so and yes, it did stop me. MooTwo 19:14, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Player characters from portable games

What happened to the player character models shown in the first Battle Revolution videos during 2006? I mean Red, Leaf, Lucas, and Dawn. Are they available in versus battles of some version of the game? Or were they dropped because of the Pass system? --Johans 19:56, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Lucas and Dawn appear in the DS battle mode. Dunno about Red/Leaf. TTEchidnaFire echy 07:33, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
I guess those were just for beta shots. There doesn't seem to be any way to get Red or Leaf, but you do see Lucas and Dawn as applicable when doing DS Battle mode. Perhaps they're still in there and can be hacked. I dunno. It'd have been cool to have their clothes for customization. --Phred 05:05, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Battle Passes

Does anyone else agree that we should have all the battle passes on one page rather than one for Rental one for Custom and one for Friend passes Phantom

Giratina, Shaymin, Regigigas

We know Giratina's got a new form, and it's rumored that Shaymin and Regigigas are getting the same treatment. This leads to my question: Has anyone heard about people hacking the game and looking for Giratina's Origin Form? If it's there, we may also find Shaymin and Regigigas other forms.--PikamasterADV 14:32, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Well, considering that Platinum version isn't out yet, and that PBR was released a while before it was even announced, hacking to find the alternate forms would be very difficult, if not impossible. Diachronos 16:59, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
Well, that, and, who the hell knew to be looking for them before May?
Anyone hacking PBR as we speak to find the models for OF Giratina, SF Shaymin, and the other five Rotoms? TTEchidna 17:37, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
Well, It's not impossible, Colosseum had the trainer models for Fire Red and Leaf Green programmed in advance into it. --Phred 00:43, 15 January 2009 (UTC)


If i have a pokemon diamona and a pokemon pearl then get a pikachu for both, can i send the daimond pikachu to pearl then restart the game and get another diamond?( I ask this because it says that you can't download 2 pikachus to the same cart and i only have pearl so i'm wondering since i can't try it) {{SUBST::User:SLE aman/Signature}} 01:08, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure that once you start a new game and overwrite the file, you can transfer another Pikachu or the other special Pokémon to it again. ~$aturn¥oshi THE VOICES 01:15, 24 June 2008 (UTC)


The problem here is:

  • No Giratina Orgin Forme/Shaymin Sky Forme?
  • Trainer outfit changes?
  • Noticed the section in Stats where it says D/P trainer ID? WEhat about Pt?
  • Will the game be able to connect?

--Anangryzapdos 20:12, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Problem with TRU Shaymin?

Whenever I try to use my battle pass that has a TRU Shaymin on it to fight online the pass gets rejected. It says there are Pokémon on that pass that cannot enter the battle. I tested each Pokémon individually and it turned out that the TRU Shaymin kept getting rejected. Why is this, and is there a way I can fix it? Dilophosaurus Rex 18:02, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

I think I have a solution.The Tru Shaymin has a special event ribbon on it.Besides,In DPt,If you try to trade with the ribbion on it,it rejects.It`s the classic ribbion is what i think.The Aura Wolf !!!! 23:01, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

HeartGold and SoulSilver

So how the G/S remakes affect PBR? BTW, how did Platinum affected PBR? Pokemon lover 22:28, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Presumably compatible. You can use Platinum with PBR, you just can't use any of the new Platinum Formes, nor does your trainer appear in their cold weather outfit in DS Battle mode. So yeah. --Phred 23:43, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Speaking of which, has there been any announcements or anything about a PBR (or similar) game that can use the Platinum Formes? Diachronos 22:49, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

HG/SS will more than likely be compatible because like Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, Battle Revolution has location data for Johto. --Dialgafan1 23:16, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

[1], as translated by [2] seems to suggest they will be compatible. --Phred 23:10, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

It seems that anything caught in the HGSS special pokeballs isn't compatible. --Pyritie 15:11, 9 July 2010 (UTC)


I just added a list of the Mystery Gift items and prices. Should we have a list for Gear too? Or maybe a separate Gear (Pokémon Battle Revolution) article, since there’s so much of it? --LaprasBoi 03:18, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

A seperate article might be a good idea if you think adding it here would make the article waay too long. ZestyCactus 03:23, 29 August 2009 (UTC)
The gear for the trainers? You could add that on to Custom Pass --Phred 04:13, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Shiny Costumes. Do they exist or not?

I've been revising the PBR's Colosseum articles and keep coming across the same piece of info regarding the possibility of getting a shiny Pokémon costume after defeating a Colosseum Leader. I've played PBR for a while now and have NEVER heard of anything like this, let alone seen any in-game proof. While it's rarity can be understood, I am still very skeptic of their existence. Can someone confirm/deny this and put up a picture or something as proof? --Halcyon VI 19:11, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

I'm honestly not sure if they exist in the finished copy of the game or not, but the strategy guide has some pictures of them that you can see here GauRocks 08:22, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

HGSS compatibility

So will Gold and Kotone appear as Lucas and Dawn? I don't see that mentioned. --ケンジガール 06:59, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

Surfing Raichu

I know we have a picture already of pikachu surfing, but what about raichu surfing? - unsigned comment from Rocket Base (talkcontribs)

Raichu will do it's typical "using special attack" animation. --Ninterror 20:26, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

Wi-Fi Rank System

"You can also square off against Trainers from around the world using Pokémon Battle Revolution's Wi-Fi Rank system, which pits you against Trainers that have skill levels similar to your own."


So apparently there's a ranking system. I know it's hidden, but anyone know how this works? MagicBarrier 03:05, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

Compatibility with Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver Versions

Just for everyone's information: On the HG instruction booklet, page 4, it says, "Pokémon HeartGold Version can communicate with Pokémon SoulSilver, Platinum, Diamond, and Pearl versions and Pokémon Battle Revolution using Nintendo DS™ Wireless Communications." (emphasis mine) Ultraflame 01:14, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

I've always wondered...

Were the gift codes for Electivire and Magmortar ever officially revealed by Nintendo, or have they gone undistributed (without people hacking into the games to find the codes)? I know that the PokéPark Wii codes for instance were distributed on the official site, but I was wondering if something similar was the same case for Pokémon Battle Revolution.--Chickasaurus 18:06, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

Pokétopia Pikachu

I just received a Pokétopia Pikachu via the GTS; however, I'm not sure if it is hacked, as it appears to come from a European copy with a blue OT, not a red OT like the article says it should have. The Pikachu has a Hardy nature, obtained on 12/8/2007, came from a Sinnoh game, apparently arriving at Lv. 10, fateful encounter, and is often lost in thought. Its ID No. is 12077, knows the moves Volt Tackle, Tail Whip, and Thunder Wave. This is in a North American copy of Black 2.--Abcboy (talk) 17:38, 1 December 2012 (UTC)

The red OTs are wrong. They should all be blue. I have fixed this. --SnorlaxMonster 16:22, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

Move "Yes"?

"This Pokémon must forget the move yes in order to be able to be sent to Poké Transfer." What? Why does it say the move yes?

Found "Yes (move)" on the wanted pages. -EVsAndIVsaurs (Talk) 15:08, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

Fixed.--Den Zen 15:13, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

Deletion tag

Why does this have a deletion tag? I tried editing it out but I couldn't find it. Master Bates (talk) 15:39, 7 July 2014 (UTC) Never mind, I've figured out why the deletion tag was there (one of the templates used for this article will soon be deleted). Fixed. Master Bates (talk) 15:42, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Stadium series?

As the proud owner of all the Stadium games and not so proud owner of Battle Revolution who has played with all the gamemodes, I'm Boggled as to why this has been put into the Stadium category. Battle simulator yes but beyond that basic concept it's a completely different game from the Stadium series. It's like calling Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi a sequel to Budokai 3.

I'm not very familiar with Colosseum and XD besides the XD main story mode which i played through once, but I'm guessing PBR might be a Colosseum series game? The presentation in PBR resembles Colosseum/XD and PBR has "Colosseums". Otherwise PBR is a one off game that incorporates (unfortunately only the most shallow) aspects from both Colosseum and Stadium.

Also, wasn't Colosseum created as a Stadium sequel that traded various features for an RPG to begin with anyway? In a way Stadium, Colosseum and BR are all radically different but share some ideas and are all based around the same core concept of bringing big Pokemon Battles to the TV. Perhaps the two series should just be merged. Snugglefox (talk) 05:15, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Electivire and Magmortar

The gift Electivire and Magmortar do not list codes for Japan. Are these exclusive to the Western localizations, or are we simply missing the Japanese codes? If the former, we should really state that explicitly on the page. --SnorlaxMonster 07:24, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

Not available in Japan, according to the German page. Nescientist (talk) 17:35, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

twitch plays pokemon

should we put something in the trivia about the twitch plays pokemon side game matches. (Theultrasheeplord (talk) 08:50, 17 July 2017 (UTC))

Can you turn off battle animations?

The incredibly long battle animations that you couldn't turn off were a major missing feature from XD, can they be turned off in this game? Fungi (talk) 04:34, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

I don't believe so. The only options mentioned in the manual are announcer voice and control style (horizontal vs vertical wiimote, and A vs B as accept for some reason), and I don't remember that being an option when I last played it (about a decade ago...) --Pokechu22 (talk) 04:46, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

James Turner released unused character designs where should this go
