4. Battle Royal
Sun and Moon don’t add much in the way of new multiplayer features over the previous games, but they do add one new mode that is sure to lead to make waves among the player base: Battle Royal. Like the name implies, this mode is a free-for-all frenzy that pits four players against each other at once. Each player brings up to three Pokémon into battle and the match ends after one player loses all of their Pokémon. A winner is determined by combining the remaining Pokémon at the end of battle with the number of foes they were able to defeat. In practice, Battle Royal is much more hectic than regular battles and requires players to defend themselves from all sides, which introduces a whole new level of strategy into the battle system.
