The big Pokémon have had their fun—now it’s time for the rest of the Pokémon to play! In the Little Cup Online Competition, the rules have been designed for quick, exciting battles that are easy for anyone to play. You can’t use any Pokémon that have evolved or that are incapable of evolving. For example, you can use Charmander, but not Charmeleon or Charizard. And you can’t use Kangaskhan because it doesn’t evolve into any other Pokémon. What’s more, all Pokémon will be set to Level 5 for the duration of the battle!
All battles will be Single Battles using Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. You’ll need to have a party of 3–6 Pokémon, but you’ll choose only 3 for battle. Your team of Pokémon must have been acquired in Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby, or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. Consult the regulations for additional restrictions.
Every qualifying participant in the Little Cup competition will receive 1,000 Poké Miles.
Registration for the Little Cup Online Competition begins Thursday, May 14, 2015. You’ll need a Pokémon Trainer Club account and your own copy of the Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire video game with a party of eligible Pokémon. And you’ll need to read and accept the regulations on the Pokémon Global Link before the battle period begins.
