PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A
0 votes

Probably sounds/is a stupid question, but I legit can't figure out any ways. You can't use your own Pokemon, so right there they already screw you over royally. But to top that off, the Pokemon they give you are garbage, the Pokemon the Plaza Guests have are garbage, and 99.9% of the people you can recruit from the Festival Plaza have in-game Pokemon, which are, surprise surprise, garbage.

So, aside from just using the Switcheroo shop a thousand times in hopes that you'll get something to choose from that's just blatantly stronger than most Pokemon like a Legendary, Mythic, or Ultra Beast, is there any way to win?

What even is the Battle Agency?
It's a new facility in the Festival Plaza, introduced in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. In this place you can borrow Pokémon they offer you, select other people's Pokémon from a list of people you can choose from and challenge NPC's to 3vs3 battles. A little bit similar to the battle factory in Platinum, but you get Festival Coins instead of BP when you win.
Maybe you can try recruiting people with better Pokemon.
Easier said than done, sumwun.

Well each Pokémon that is in the Battle Agency have a specialized moveset that are used differently, you just have to figure out how to use them. The Battle Agency is sort of like competitive online battling, except that your opponents are AI and you can only use certain Pokémon. For example, one Pokémon I got was a Porygon-Z with wise glasses and had a moveset of: Tri-Attack, Thunderbolt, Signal Beam, and Recover. This is a classic example of an offensive Pokémon with a healing move. Other Pokémon I got were a little more convoluted such as a Taunt-Suckerpunch Honchkrow. Basically you have to rely on your knowledge of Pokémon, their strengths and weaknesses, their moves, and your ability as a competitive battler. Other than that, there isn't much else you can do. Hope this helps.
