Please feel free to edit this article to add missing information and complete it.
Reason: Logo, images, dates, battle types, rules, competition, records, etc..

The Global Battle Union (Japanese: グローバルバトルユニオン Global Battle Union), commonly shortened to GBU, is a part of the Pokémon Global Link that displays battle records from the Random Matchup Rating Mode in Pokémon Black and White.

In order to access the Global Battle Union, a player must have a Pokémon Global Link account. Rankings cannot even be seen without logging into the site first.

Rankings

Selecting an avatar

Every season, once a player has completed ten Random Matchup Wi-Fi battles (ties and incomplete battles do not count) of any format, they are added into the ranking system of the Global Battle Union. All players are ranked according to the number of points that they have. The points are generally intended to account for the win-loss record of that player.

In addition to seeing the general rankings and points of other players, players can also view an "advanced" version of their own rankings by clicking a "details" button on the page. Rankings, along with other information, can be transferred when using another Nintendo DS console by transferring Wi-Fi Connection settings.

Besides being able to see the overall rankings of each player, rankings can also be filtered by battle format (Single, Double, Triple, Launcher, or Rotation Battles) as well as by location of the player.

Players that end a season ranked in the top 100 of the overall rankings receive a special trophy avatar on the Global Link.

Seasons

Every three months, the Global Battle Union ends a season on a Tuesday, and an extended maintenance session of the whole Pokémon Global Link is scheduled before the day of season interchange. The following day, a Wednesday, a new season will begin. Final rankings are released two to three weeks after a season ends. Once a new season starts, players start over with zero points.

Listed below are all of the Global Battle Union seasons that have been scheduled:

  • Season 1: April 13 to June 28, 2011
  • Season 2: June 29 to September 27, 2011
  • Season 3: September 28 to December 27, 2011
  • Season 4: December 28, 2011 to March 27, 2012

Competitions

In addition to its ranking system, the Global Battle Union serves as the venue for tournament registration. A Digital Player ID is given after registering via the Battle Competition in the main menu of Pokémon Black and White. The Battle Box is used for the party to be used in the competition, which is then registered and locked. The Battle Box Pokémon (even the order of their moves) may not be changed while the competition is on-going. Choosing the Battle Competition option again will allow players to participate in battles for the competition. Players can only cancel participation via the Battle Competition option, not the Global Battle Union.

To date, the Battle Union has hosted the following competitions:
