The Academy Ace Tournament (Japanese: 学校最強大会 School Ace Tournament), also known as the School Battle Brawl (Japanese: バトルスクールウォーズ Battle School Wars), is a Pokémon battle single elimination tournament in 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 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.

To win, the player must defeat 4 random Trainers - students or faculty members in the academy - in Single Battles. The player's team is automatically healed before every battle, but there is no opportunity to change Pokémon or moves between matches. 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) the first time the tournament is won.

Completing the Academy Ace Tournament is necessary to be able to access 6★ Tera Raid Battles.

After the player has caught Terapagos during The Indigo Disk expansion, any Trainer that can be invited to visit Blueberry Academy will change their team in the Academy Ace Tournament to match their team in Blueberry Academy. Also, after catching Pecharunt at the end of Mochi Mayhem, Arven, Penny and Nemona's team's levels will increase.
