Global Battle Union

Within the Global Link, there is the Global Battle Union feature. This feature essentially gives a ranking system for the battles you partake in through the Random Match feature of the game, speciafically when it's a Rating Mode battle. Each player starts off with a point value of 1500 and when you win or lose in a Random Match battle, the score will go up and down depending on how well you have done.

These are ranked within several different categories;
Total - Your total score
Single Battle - Your score in Single Battles
Double Battle - Your score in Double Battles
Triple Battle - Your score in Triple Battles
Rotation Battle - Your score in Rotation Battles
Shooter Battle - Your score in Shooter Battles

There are also going to be various tournaments over Random Match Wi-Fi for which you'll be able to sign up on this site.

In the profile of the Global Link, you'll be able to access a variety of features including your own battle record, how well you did in the Global Link competitions and you can store a number of Battle Videos which you class as your favourites. These are visible to all of your friends.

Random Match

To access the Random Match part of the game, talk to the attendant on the right on the top floor of each Pokémon Centre. Random Match will be an option under the GTS.
