This new event focuses on the trainers of Sinnoh's Elite Four - Aaron, Bertha, Lucian, and Flint. This event is available in-game now, and will continue until May 26th, at 10:59pm (PT). This event offers players a variety of battles to complete and stages to play through on different difficulties. By completing battles during this event, players can earn Event Voucher Y, Z, and A items, which can be exchanged for a variety of valuable items, including 5★ Sinnoh Scout Tickets, and other items available. Players can also take on event missions for additional rewards and for more story content.

A powerful opponent arrives as Cabalion returns to the Legendary Arena. In the Legendary Arena, trainers must complete a set of challenges using up to 30 sync pairs. New event missions have been added for this re-run of the event, offering trainers an opportunity to gain additional gems by completing specific challenges. The Legendary Arena is open right now, and can be challenged up until May 23rd, at 10:59pm (PT). Cabalion was last available in the Legendary Arena in September 2021.
Cabalion is weak to Fire-type moves, but is resistant to all damage thanks to the Healthy Advantage 8 passive skill. This protection can be negated by inflicting Cobalion with a status condition, although its resistance to any status condition increases each time Cobalion recovers from one, until it becomes immune.
As with all Legendary Arenas, players must have passed Chapter 2: Defeat Team Break in the main story on normal mode in order to participate in this event.
The Battle Villa, a recurring event that allows players to use up to 9 sync pairs to progress through its stages, will be open until May 23rd, at 10:59pm (PT). Performing well in this challenge will allow players to obtain up to 2000 gems, as well as items to upgrade their sync pairs including cookies and lucky scrolls. To enter the Battle Villa, players must progress past Chapter 7: Where There's a Will, There's a Way (Normal) in single player mode.
Players who complete every hall in the Battle Villa will be able to skip certain halls the next time the Battle Villa opens. Halls that are skipped will still award first-time rewards, however any coin completion rewards, XP, and bonus awards will not be granted. Skipped Halls also do not count towards any associations missions.
