The Academy Ace Tournament (Japanese: 学校最強大会 School Ace Tournament), also known as School Battle Brawl (Japanese: バトルスクールウォーズ Battle School Wars) is a Pokémon battle elimination tournament in the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. It takes place in the center of Mesagoza before the steps to Naranja AcademyS/Uva AcademyV, after the player has completed all of the base game of the storylines. It was created by Director Clavell and was organized by Nemona for the purpose of seeing the impressive strength of the player as the new Champion. The objective of winning is to defeat 4 random Trainers of student or faculty members in the academy in a Single Battle. The player's team is automatically healed before every battle, but there is no opportunity to change Pokémon or moves between battles. Upon winning all four battles, the Paldea Champion Ribbon will be given to all Pokémon in the player's party. Nemona hands the player a Sporty Cap (Pokémon League) as Director Clavell is unable to the first time the Tournament is defeated. Completing the Academy Ace Tournament is necessary to be able to access 6★ Tera Raid Battles.

  • The Academy Ace Tournament was initially coined by Arven as the "School Battle Brawl", where the name was used by multiple students, staff members, and even Director Clavell himself, much to the annoyance of Nemona.
