Pokémon X & Y, like its predecessors, has introduced a whole new way to battle, Sky Battles. These battles are, as the name suggests, battles in the sky, with the trainers looking from below to view the battle.

Sky Battles

Sky Battles are a new battle mode that only certain trainers will partake in. Within these battles, you can only use a select sort of Pokémon. For these battles, you have to use Flying-type Pokémon, or Pokémon with Levitate. However, even not all of those are candidates with Pokémon such as Doduo and Pidgey being exempt. Mega Charizard X can still be used in these battles despite not having the qualifying factors after Mega Evolving.

Within these battles, you are also unable to use moves such as Gravity and Ground-type moves are obviously not going to work. However, other than those restrictions, the battles are largely the same to single battles in the game.

Each battle can only be done once, however, and when you defeat them all, you will receive a medal. Click the location for more details
