Contest Battle
A Contest Battle is an {{pkmn|anime}}-exclusive battle variant in which two [[Pokémon Coordinator]]s face off while attempting to lower each other's scores. These battles have a five-minute time limit, during which each participant must show off his or her Pokémon in a visually impressive manner. Unlike a regular battle, Coordinators and their Pokémon are judged on the style of their moves and the way they are able to dodge their opponent's attacks.
Contest Battles are usually [[Contest Judge|judged]] by [[Raoul Contesta|Mr. Contesta]], [[Mr. Sukizo]], and [[Nurse Joy]]. They are the ones responsible for subtracting points from a Coordinator's score. Coordinators will generally lose points when their Pokémon are hit by an attack, when their Pokémon's attack fails, when the opponent's Pokémon performs a particularly [[appeal]]ing [[move]] or [[Contest combination|combo]], or when the opponent's Pokémon uses their Pokémon's attack to its own advantage. Contest Battles may also end when the judges rule [[Fainting#In the anime|Battle Off]] for a Pokémon. In this case, the Coordinator with the remaining Pokémon is declared the winner.
