A Dev Showdown (Japanese: 運営員マッチングイベントStaff Matching Event) is a type of event in Pokémon Duel. During these competitions, members of the game's development staff are inserted into the League Match rankings and compete against players during certain times. Devs can be identified by an exclusive mask they wear. Rewards for the events are distributed to all players based on the collective number of wins achieved against the developers.
In addition to these rewards, each win tier attained increased the rarity of a figure which was to be added to the game and distributed at a later date. As the players accomplished all the win goals, the figure was a [UX] Pikachu.
