In related news, another Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire event, the Circle of Legends Online Competition will start on Friday. The online competition is a multiplayer Pokémon battle that is composed only of Legendary and Mythical Pokémon, using the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphiregames. However, Legendary and Mythical Pokémon from past game titles such as Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, or Pokémon White 2 can also participate in the competition, via the Poké Transporter. To balance each match up, all participating Pokémon in a player’s team will be set to Lv. 100 for the entire match.
The competition will use Rotation Battle format, and will have two age divisions—the Junior/Senior Division (for those born 2000 or later) and the Masters Division (born 1999 or earlier). Qualified participants will receive 1,000 Poké Miles. To qualify, players must earn a place in the rankings by completing at least one battle.
The competition will end on Sunday, July 26, 2015, at 23:59 UTC. Player rankings will be announced early August.
