Battle Sims are a feature in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. Battle CDs, of which 50 can be located throughout Orre, are used to create simulated battles at Realgam Tower. The player is given a team of Pokémon to use in the battle. Generally, there are turn limits to the battles and the battles have a theme. The first time the player successfully completes a Battle CD, a prize is awarded.

Battle Sims are also found in Pokémon HQ Lab. However, these are only beginner simulations.

The first battle in Pokémon XD, and the first time seeing Michael is in a Sim battle, where Michael is using a Salamence, while the opposing Sim Trainer is using a Metagross.

Sim Trainers are only found in Battle Sims.

Trivia

  • According to an NPC, Cooltrainer Daras in Mt. Battle in Pokémon Colosseum, Battle Sims seem to have already existed although it is unknown where he did the Battle Sims as the Realgam Tower was Cipher's base back then. He was the 76th Trainer on Mt. Battle and when the player meets up with him he states firmly, "I constantly run simulations of Pokémon battles. I'll be perfect in a real battle." Because of the change in Trainers in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness and Cooltrainer Noxon appears a platform before him, it is possible that he went to the Pokémon HQ lab to teach Michael the basics of Pokémon battling, however this is also unknown as it doesn't give that particular NPC a name and the Athlete Trainer Class was removed.
  • Supertrainer Jodlet's Paras knows Sleep Powder, a move which Paras cannot legally learn in any games.
