New Battle Party

A newly-created Battle Party loadout

A Battle Party is a loadout system that allows a Trainer to create and name teams of up to six (three in Trainer Battles) Pokémon in their Pokémon collection for quick access when participating in Gym battles and Raid Battles.[1]


Battle Parties

Various types of parties

Battle parties are preset teams of up to six Pokémon that Trainer are able to create and customize to fit their needs. Trainers can create different parties for frequent Raid Battles, or have battle parties that take advantage of certain weather bonuses.[1]

During the initial beta phase, battle parties were saved to a single device, so parties did not transfer if a Trainer bought a new device or used multiple devices to play Pokémon GO. Once the feature was fully launched, battle parties carried over to each device that a Trainer logs into.[1]

With the introduction of Trainer Battles, Trainer can construct three battle parties for each league. However, only three Pokémon can be assigned in the battle party of this mode.
