This mode is simply where you can battle a CPU player. This is just a simple fight against one with nothing overall special. There is no story to it so it's just plain and simple battling.

There's also an Extra Battle mode. In this mode, rather than having Synergy Gauge additions show up in Field Phase, instead there are items that will show up. Blue boosts your Synergy Gauge, Green restores Hit Points but Red will increase Attack, Defense or Speed. There may also be negative effects from them.

Local Play
Players: 2

This mode is one that lets you play locally with another player. There are two different variants here. The first mode is on one console where one player has to use the Wii U GamePad and the other player uses the TV with any other controller. During this mode, the frame rate of the game is halved to 30fps

The alternative mode is LAN play where you have two Wii Us connected via LAN cable (requiring LAN Adapters). This locks the game to 60 frames per second and all controllers can be used.

Friendly Matches can be played against anyone, with people on Friend Lists or people who have the Battle Code for your Friendly Match.
