The Sinnoh/Johto Battle Frontier is a location featured in Pokémon Platinum and Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. It is similar to the Hoenn Battle Frontier but the Generation IV one has more facilities.

This type of Frontier is found in Sinnoh and Johto, but both are exactly the same. The Sinnoh Battle Frontier is found in the north of the Fight Area and the Johto one is located in the west of Olivine City. The player can get into the Battle Frontier through the Frontier Access. Every one of the sections in the Battle Frontier is controlled and lead by a Frontier Brain which are only able to be batled after the player obtains a certain amount of winning streaks. If a Frontier Brain is defeated then the player gains commemorative points.

After defeating the Elite Four and tag teaming with your Rival to defeat Volkner and Flint in Pokémon Platinum, you gain access to the Sinnoh Battle Frontier. In HeartGold and SoulSilver, you gain access to it by just beating the Elite Four. The symbol for this Battle Frontier is a pentagon with a large dot in the edges. These indicate the Battle Facilities: the Battle Tower, the Battle Arcade, the Battle Castle, the Battle Hall, and the Battle Factory. Like in Pokemon Emerald's Battle Frontier, each facility is led by a Frontier Brain. BattleFrontier IV

The Battle Arcadeis a new challenge. It is a standard 3-on-3 battle, but there is a catch. Prior to battling an opponent, the player must spin and stop a gameboard via the touch screen. The space that the player lands on determines the effects of the battle. The effects can affect the player, the opponent, or both; depending on which space they landed. The more wins you get, the harder your opponents get and the faster the board goes.

You choose the type of your opponents. Using Sableye or Spiritomb is effective, because they don't suffer from type weaknesses. Every time you beat a type, their rank goes up. This makes them smarter have a higher level, and higher stats.


  • The Sinnoh Battle Frontier is smaller than the Hoenn Battle Frontier.
  • The Sinnoh Battle Frontier reappears in Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver Versions as the Johto Battle Frontier.
