The team Red used in his Full Battle against Blue

A Full Battle (Japanese: フルバトル Full Battle), also known as a six-on-six battle, is a Pokémon battle in which both Trainers use a full party of six Pokémon. The first Trainer to completely knock out all of the opposing Trainer's Pokémon wins the battle.

These battles are rare, both in the anime and the games. Typically, Trainers will use fewer than the full six, usually one to three.

In the anime

Most Trainers declare a specific number of Pokémon to be used in a battle. This number is very rarely the full six. Battles in the final rounds of each region's League Conference are usually Full Battles.

In the games

Unlike the anime, the games allow two Trainers to use different numbers of Pokémon. While the player can have six Pokémon in the party at a time, many NPCs faced will not. Generally only rivals and Champions have a full team during the main storyline, while Gym Leaders and members of the Elite Four may also have a full team in rematches. Red also has a full team on the player's first match against him in Generations II and IV. Some Pokémon Breeders maintain a full team, although their Pokémon usually have lower levels than other Trainers' Pokémon in the area. Most main series games have at least one Fisherman with a party of six Magikarp. The non-experience earning battles in battle facilities also have Full Battles. Only on rare occasions do other Trainers have a full team.

Trivia

  • If movies are not counted, Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl is the only series in which Full Battles took place outside of an official tournament.
  • Pokémon the Series: Black & White is the only series which did not feature a proper Full Battle, as only bits of Cameron versus Virgil and Virgil versus Dino were shown. Though Ash's battle against Cameron was supposed to be a Full Battle and was shown in its entirety, it wasn't a proper Full Battle, as Cameron accidentally handicapped himself by only bringing five Pokémon to the match.
    • This also makes it the only series where Ash does not participate in a proper Full Battle of six-on-six.
  • Ash's battle against Gary in the Silver Conference is his only known Full Battle in the anime where he doesn't use Pikachu.
  • Ash's battle against Cynthia marks the first time Ash has participated in a Full Battle without using a traditional regional starter Pokémon.
  • Paul is the only character in the anime that Ash has had more than one Full Battle against.
  • Pokémon Journeys: The Series is the only series in which Ash partakes in more than one Full Battle and doesn't lose any of them.
