Battle Royal Dome (Japanese: ロイヤルドーム Royal Dome) is a location on Akala Island in Alola, located on Royal Avenue. It is the venue for all Battle Royal matches.

The arena where Battle Royal matches are conducted has four corners: red, blue, green, and yellow. Each corner has an entrance shaped like a Pokémon's head: the red corner is shaped like Charizard, the blue corner is shaped like Gyarados, the green corner is shaped like Tyranitar, and the yellow corner is shaped like Haxorus.


The player can enter a Battle Royal challenge by speaking to the third receptionist from the left. There are four ranks that can be chosen from: Normal, Super, Hyper and Master, in increasing difficulty. Initially, Normal will be the only rank available. Winning first place in a Battle Royal challenge will unlock the next-level rank.

Each NPC Trainer will use teams of three Pokémon selected at random. As challenges go up in rank, the Trainers battled become progressively stronger.

The Battle Royal Dome appeared in SM063, where Ash, after witnessing the Masked Royal earning his 20th consecutive Battle Royal victory on TV, traveled to the dome along with his classmates to take part in a special event, where any volunteers would get a chance to battle the Masked Royal. Ash's Litten, having become agitated after seeing the Masked Royal's Incineroar, jumped down from the stands, leading to Ash taking part in a Battle Royal, along with Kiawe and Sophocles. Incineroar easily shrugged off all the attacks its opponents threw at it, and was easily able to defeat Kiawe's Marowak and Sophocles's Charjabug with Darkest Lariat. Litten, however, managed to survive the attack, thanks to its sheer determination to battle its evolved form. After the Masked Royal revealed that he had been holding back, both he and Ash decided to get serious. However, this only resulted in Litten getting swiftly defeated by a Bulk Up-powered Throat Chop from Incineroar.
