Each Trainer battles in one on one battles. Winning Trainers move on the Qualifying round.

Qualifying rounds

All Trainers battle in Double Battles in the Qualifying round. After the Trainers win three double battles in a row they move on to the final round.


Like the Silver Conference, Trainers get a day to rest before the victory tournament in the main stadium. All participating Trainers battle in full battles. In addition there is a short break after a Trainer losses three Pokémon and during the break there is a filed change. Losing Trainers are out of the tournament and the winning Trainers moves on until a winner has been declared. The winning Trainer is presented the trophy by Mr. Goodshow.
