A Sky Battle (Japanese: スカイバトル Sky Battle) is a type of Pokémon battle introduced in Pokémon X and Y. Sky Battles consist of two Pokémon battling each other in the air instead of on land or sea. However, because of this, only Flying types and Pokémon with the Ability Levitate are eligible for Sky Battles.
In the games
At certain points in the game, the player can encounter Sky Trainers on top of cliffs or other distant areas who will challenge them to a Sky Battle. All Sky Battles are optional, as the player may not always have any eligible Pokémon to use.
