The Battle Tree looks to be a compacted Battle Frontier. I kinda feel like the Champions will work as Frontier Brains in it.
I wonder if the Battle Tree is the "facility we won't believe" that the Strange Souvenir guy talks about.
It certainly seems interesting to me, but I can believe it lol. It's definitely a step up from the Maison, but it doesn't look like it will have any super different mechanics like the Frontiers. It kind of disappoints me because they've added so many different battle styles into Pokemon since gen 4. I would have loved to see an inverse frontier facility!
They seem to have removed Triple and Rotation battles completely, so it's not that big of a stretch to think they may have removed Inverse battles, too. Which really sucks, honestly. Triple battles and Inverse battles were kind of fun.
Wait have they really removed them?
It appears so, yeah. Apparently they aren't on Battle Spot. Idk if they found that through the datamine, though.
Ah interesting. I did play them pretty frequently during Gen 5 but not as much in Gen 6, so I may only miss them a little if they are truly gone.
