Frontier Facilities
The Battle Castle (バトルキャッスル, Battle Castle) is a facility featured in the new Battle Frontier, and is situated in the south-western corner. In the Battle Castle, the player must fight 7 trainers in a row, with the prerequisite being that all hold items must be removed prior to entry. Trainers are also limited to using only 3 Pokémon, all of which have had their levels reduced to level 50. The Frontier Brain for the Battle Castle is known as Castle Valet Darach. The player will first face off against Darach once 21 battles have been cleared in succession. After the player achieves victory, Darach will award him/her with a commemorative Silver Print. Darach is able to be fought again after the player progresses to 49 consecutive matches. Upon this time, Darach awards the player with a commemorative Gold Print.

Castle Points

Instead of Battle Points (BP) being the universal currency in all other modes within the Battle Frontier, Castle Points (CP) are used to this effect. Similarly to BP, Castle Points are received upon victory in battle, which in turn can allow the player to restore his/her Pokémon in terms of PP, HP and the purchasing of specific hold items from the Battle Castle. They can alternatively be used at the player's behest to look at the opponent Trainer's Pokémon and moveset, in order to better prepare a strategy. Castle Points can also be used to limit the opponent Pokémon's level by a maximum of five levels. Upon entering the Battle Castle, the player is gifted with 10CP. There are also special conditions that must be met in order for the player to receive additional Castle Points during a battle. Also, there are several inhibitors set in place to restrict the items the player can acquire, which can be lifted through upgrading from one Castle Rank to the next. The items available for purchase as well as the pre-requisite conditions that need to be met for unlocking these items are as follows:

Restore HP and PP

Function Price Pre-Requisite Event
HP Recovery 10 Castle Points Available from start
PP Recovery 8 Castle Points Upgrade to Castle Rank 1
Full Recovery 12 Castle Points Upgrade to Castle Rank 2

Increasing CP Yield

There are also a series of in-battle criteria that can increase the number of Castle Points the Trainer receives at the end of the battle. When these events(s) are reached, the Trainer's overall Castle Points are multiplied. A list of such is as follows:

Criteria Number of CP received
# of Pokémon that have not fainted. # x 3 Castle Points
# of Pokémon with full HP # x 3 Castle Points
# of Pokémon with more than half HP remaining # x 2 Castle Points
# of Pokémon with less than half HP remaining # x 1 Castle Point
# of Pokémon with no status ailments # x 1 Castle Point
Total PP Usage less than 5 # x 8 Castle Points
Total PP Usage less than 10 # x 6 Castle Points
Total PP Usage less than 15 # x 4 Castle Points
Total PP Usage less than 5 # x 8 Castle Points
# of Opponent's Pokémon that you gave +5 level increase # x 7 Castle Points
