You do mean "Guts" and not "Cuts", right?

Uh...whoopsie? ^_^;; Fixed now. --Meowth346

Anime locations

Should the anime locations for the Battle Frontier facilities be included here? Goldchaos 15:04, 8 December 2005 (CST)

Go ahead, if you wish. (Feel free to make a whole In the anime section.) - 振霖T 08:07, 12 December 2005 (CST)

Okay, so now...

Since there's the one in Sinnoh...

Should we have Battle Frontier (Kanto) redirect here, or just make the entire anime section the Kanto article? TTEchidna 00:09, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

I personally believe the new one in Sinnoh will be in Johto in the anime, because that is the only region they haven't visited recently, also the games and anime are linked so a visit from the anime, could mean a visit from the games. However if you were to have Battle Frontier (Kanto) re-direct here, im sure some users would say "well what if the new one is in Kanto as well" or "what if the games decide to make a game where Kanto has its own Battle Frontier," meaning you'd need that page for an article. Not my views, Im just saying what I think others will say. So maybe there shouldn't be a redirect from Battle Frontier (Kanto). Thankyou for your time.

-ack, can't resist- Why not Battle Frontier (Gen III) and (Gen IV)? {{SUBST::User:Optimus35/sig/substitute page}}

What are you talking about? There is no article title Battle Frontier (Kanto).

----HoennMaster 04:54, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

In the anime, the Hoenn Battle Frontier's location is set in Kanto. - s.Combusken 04:55, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
We can't have a seperate Kanto article. It's the same brains and all... The "Gen III", "Gen IV" idea sounds good... --electAbuzzzz (TALK) 08:53, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

I realize they are the same, but everyone is referring to it as a different article.

----HoennMaster 13:34, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

Well, the Kanto (anime) and Hoenn (game) ones are the same brains and same arenas, but they're vastly different as far as geography. Either way, I've redirected the Kanto one here until which point there's a future game with a Battle Frontier in Kanto or someone decides to split the Hoenn (game) one from the Kanto (anime) one.

Item sprites

Well, we don't seem to have the sprites for the posters and Poké Dolls (if we do I have no idea where they'd be). Additionally, the sprites for the items are off center... and I don't understand why. TTEchidna 19:36, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

I can put them up if I get permission from an admin.Quadzar 18:33, 29 November 2011 (UTC)


If you lose to a frontier brain does that mean it is impossible to get the symbol of the brain or do a rematch? Atomix26 01:42, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

Nah, you just have to fufill the conditions again before you can challenge them a second time. For instance, in the Battle Factory if you lose to Noland the first time, you have to beat ANOTHER 21 trainers to get a second shot at the Knowledge Symbol :P Gastly's mama 20:16, 23 November 2008 (UTC) Gastly's Mama

Battle Arena

In the battle arena, when a Pokemon is on red HP (0%<HP<25%) and then is defeated on a judge's decision, the alarm bell continues ringing when the next pokemon is sent out. This could have something to do with the fact that it isn't really defeated, but I don't know. Could this be put in trivia or something? Gastly's mama 21:05, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

Likely a glitch in the programming. In DP, if your Pokémon gets leveled up in a wild battle and its HP is red, the alarm bell comes back. TTEchidna 04:01, 8 December 2008 (UTC)


Don't know if this is the right place to bring this up, but I couldn't think of a better place. Basically, I've noticed that in the Battle Frontier each Pokemon species seems to have a specific moveset. For example, every Clamperl has Toxic, Dive, Iron Defense and Double Team. I was just wondering if it'd be worth attempting to note down each Pokemon's Battle Frontier movesets on their individual pages, it might be a useful piece of information. Gastlys mama 12:55, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Another question I made in the Focus Punch page, but no one answered... In Battle Pyramid there are wild Brelooms that use Focus Punch without charging first... how is that possible? (even though Breloom has not Inner Focus as ability) hfc2X 05:39, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Good Trivia?

I think the reason the Battle Frontier is in Kanto might be a reference to FireRed and LeafGreen, because they were made beofe Emerald (which introduced the Battle Frontier). Does anyone else think so? 01:45, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Yes, that's why they done it. The anime follows the events of the games, so they just killed 2 birds with 1 stone. hfc2X 21:59, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Different pages

Should the different facilities have their own pages?--Pokemonguy1 23:04, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

I say yes. This page should be a disambiguation page.

IV tester

There is an IV tester in a house directly on top of the PM Center in the Battle Frontier. I still don't see any information about him, can anyone add the dialogue of the IV tester? This is a fairly important NPC of the game. I posted similar stuff in the talk page of Battle Tower (Sinnoh). --Fromia 17:36, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

Battle Pyramid Question

On the page, it states the different wild pokémon themes from one to twenty. However, I was wondering what would happen if you went through for a twenty-first run. Would it loop back to the beginning, or has no-one simply gotten this far yet? Either way, I think this needs to be noted in the article, even though it is completely optional, as you would have the Gold Symbol by this point. --Choatix 18:54, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

It does go back to the beginning, as far as I know. ht14 03:46, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Featured Article?

Yes, I do think this article is deserving of such. It has tons of info and a lot of great pictures. :--SuperAipom7 (Questions?) 23:43, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Please take that to the featured article discussion subpage: Talk:Battle Frontier (Generation III)/Featured article candidate. Werdnae (talk) 06:18, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
Oops! Sorry! :--SuperAipom7 (Questions?) 13:26, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

The article definitely deserves a featured article status. It is just as good and better than Oak's lab.(Pak dragons 08:00, 11 May 2011 (UTC))

I'll address you to the link Werdnae already posted, that's where you could add your opinion on the featured status of this article. Masatoshitalk 08:16, 11 May 2011 (UTC)
Scratch that, the voting is closed, so for the moment, you can't give any opinions. Masatoshitalk 08:22, 11 May 2011 (UTC)


I beat 21 matches in the palace and the guy never showed up. Is the information off? Does it have to strictly be in the single battle? I got to 21 fights in double battle... Nokota 21:22, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

Splitting the article

Why is no one speaking about this? Well I am just going talk pages at the moment =3, lots of people finished the articles I want to help on already. Well, I would personally split it up. Since it's one article, it can't give all the detail it can possibly have the potential to. For example, if we are talking about one of the facilities, we can't give detailed information if it plays a huge part somewhere. Info about what it does in the game, the anime, and the manga. We can't all give that while it's in one big article. But at the same time, it is being nominated for Featured Article, it has for a while. But my mind rests on splitting the areas, and I'll gladly help build these newly built articles, if existent. Chocos0 05:14, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

I think they should keep this article but also make the others.--Supermon 21:50, 27 November 2011 (UTC)

I agree, this thing's huge. Between the games, the anime, and the manga, I'm pretty sure each battle facility has more than enough about it to warrant separate articles. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 23:39, 27 November 2011 (UTC)
