Pokemon ORAS DLC Battle Frontier DLC Announced!

Finally confirming a possibility Pokéfans have long been pondering, Nintendo has today officially announced the first Pokemon DLC for its Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby games.

A bold choice for their first attempt at anything of this kind, the DLC, titled “Battle Frontier – Celebrity Tournament”, sees the return of the previously missing Battle Frontier feature. This time, however, you’ll not only be competing with NPCs and online players, but also with special celebrity trainers!

Celebrity trainers will be accessible via the Frontier’s Green Room, and each one will possess a Pokémon with its own entirely unique move. Much like Gym Leaders, upon being beaten in battle, the celebs will offer you a TM for your own monsters, only here, the Technical Machine will be for their Pokémon’s own exclusive move.

It is currently unknown exactly how many celebrity trainers the Battle Frontier will include, but based on the details we’ve been given, they look set to be a mixture of international and region-specific stars. The first three to be announced in the UK are Jeremy Clarkson, Taylor Swift and Marvel legend Stan Lee.


Clarkson comes with the Fighting type Pokémon Hitmonchan. Its special move “Mega Pound” packs a real punch, but has a 50% chance of costing you the battle.

Meanwhile, Swift comes with the Normal and Fairy type Pokémon Jigglypuff, which knows the special move “Shake It Off”. Shake It Off removes all status conditions afflicting its user, as well as increasing their happiness levels.

Stan Lee will have the Pokémon Kecleon, with the special move Cameo. This allows a party Pokémon not currently in play to use a move without switching.

What do you think about the news? Are their any other celebrities you’d like to see included? Which Pokémon do you think they should battle with? Give us your thoughts in the comments below!

*Update* In case you hadn’t guessed it yet, this is an April Fool. Thank you for reading*
