The second series of Ranked Battles in Pokémon Sword and Shield goes live today and runs until Jan. 31, testing trainers against one another online to see who can climb to the top of the standings.
Matches will be played in a single battle and double battle format, with Pokémon only from the Galar Pokédex able to compete. Teams must consist of at least three Pokémon in Singles and four in Doubles and all Pokémon will then be set to Level 50 each.
The event is restricting the types of Gigantamax Pokémon you can have though, with only Charizard, Butterfree, Pikachu, Meowth, Eevee, Snorlax, Corviknight, Drednaw, Sandaconda, Centiskorch allowed to compete this time around.
Mew, Zacian, Zamazenta, and Eternatus are once again banned as well similar to last time.
