Battle Tents (Japanese: バトルテント Battle Tent) are red-and-white tents replacing the Contest Halls from Slateport City, Verdanturf Town, and Fallarbor Town in Pokémon Emerald.

The tents provide a way to practice for the Battle Frontier, offering a look at most of the battles to be experienced there. Players get a reward for winning three battles at a time, which varies depending on the tent. Battles conducted here do not award experience or prize money.

In the games

Slateport Site

Slateport Site

The first Battle Tent is located in Slateport City and is themed after the Battle Factory in the Battle Frontier. A sign outside the building reads:

BATTLE TENT SLATEPORT SITE
"Find it! The ultimate POKéMON!"

In this tent, entrants select three Pokémon from a random list of six rental Pokémon, all at level 30. They then face three Trainers. After defeating each Trainer, the player may trade one of their Pokémon for one of the opponent's. When swapping a Pokémon, the player is not provided with any details on the opponent's Pokémon, having instead to rely on their experience battling the opponent's team.

The reward for winning three battles in a row here is a Full Heal.

Verdanturf Site

Verdanturf Site

The second Battle Tent is located in Verdanturf Town and is themed after the Battle Palace in the Battle Frontier. A sign outside the building reads:

BATTLE TENT VERDANTURF SITE
"Feast Your Eyes on Battles!"

In this tent, entrants select three Pokémon from their party to battle three Trainers, whose Pokémon will either be level 30 or the highest level on the player's team, whichever is higher. Unlike in the other tents, the player does not directly control their Pokémon. Rather, the Pokémon will use moves they know that are most suited to their Natures. Depending on their Nature, some Pokémon will prefer not to attack, instead favoring status moves targeting itself or the opponent. When a Pokémon's HP becomes low, it may change its fighting style.

The reward for winning three battles in a row here is a Nest Ball.

Fallarbor Site

Fallarbor Site

The third Battle Tent is located in Fallarbor Town and is themed after the Battle Arena in the Battle Frontier. A sign outside the building reads:

BATTLE TENT FALLARBOR SITE
"May the Greatest Teams Gather!"

In this tent, entrants use a team of three of their own Pokémon against three Trainers, whose Pokémon will either be level 30 or the highest level on the player's team, whichever is higher. Each separate Pokémon face-off is timed for three turns. If, in three turns, neither Pokémon has been knocked out, the judge makes a decision depending on three factors: Mind (amount of offensive moves), Skill (accuracy of moves), and Body (remaining HP). Possible scores for each category are Circle (a win: 2 points), Triangle (a tie: 1 point), and X (a loss: 0 points). The Pokémon with the most points will win. The Skill category is not affected if a move misses as a result of a damage blocking attack such as Detect and Protect.

The reward for winning three battles in a row here is a Hyper Potion.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

According to Ruby, the Contest Halls in Slateport, Verdanturf, and Fallarbor were badly damaged during the battle between Groudon and Kyogre, and were replaced by Battle Tents as a result. These Battle Tents still maintained the same function of holding Pokémon Contests.
