The Battle Tree

The Battle Tree

BP and Prizes

The prizes on offer have been known to make trainers drool.

So you’ve clawed your way tooth and nail through the Battle Tree. You’ve torn apart the leagues of the Battle Legends…and finally! You’re positively drowning in BP!

What is this BP anyways?!

Battle Points , or BP for short, are a currency you can only earn from the Battle Tree. There is a shop run by 3 NPCs left of the base of the Battle Tree. This is where you will be able to redeem your BP for prizes.

You can get evolution items such as Magmarizer here, but most importantly you can get certain TMs, valuable battle items like Choice Scarf, EV training items like Power Anklet, and all the Mega Stones available in this game except Alakazite (which you got when you received the Key Stone).

The shops are absolutely jam packed with goodies and since you can only use BP to get them, and several of them can only be gotten here, you’ll have to be good at the Battle Tree to fill up your bag.

You will also prizes for getting to a certain win streak number at the Battle Tree. Talk to the receptionist on a daily basis after clearing certain milestones for more prizes!

It’s in Your Destiny!

The Destiny Knot is one of the most important items for breeding Pokemon with multiple perfect Individual Values (IVs). Check out our breeding and IVs section for more details.

If you want to get the Destiny Knot, and you will absolutely need it, you will need to save up 48 BP and buy it at the Battle Royale Dome. The only other method is to get a high leveled Pokemon with Pickup, such as Alolan Meowth, and get lucky.

Missing Mega Stones?

Unfortunately over half of the mega stones established in the previous games are absent from Sun and Moon since those Pokemon are not in the Alola Pokedex and there’s no National Dex.

We’ll update as soon as there’s a way to obtain all the missing mega stones, but until then you’re left with this relatively narrow selection to make the most of.
