Pokemon GO players will be able to check who’s on top of the Battle League from tomorrow thanks to a new online leaderboard system, which was announced today by Niantic. The developer also has a new event featuring Aqua Mouse planned to celebrate.
The board is timed to launch just after the conclusion of the Ultra League and as it transitions to Master. Here are its key features:
- It will show the top five hundred Trainers in the world and their Trainer nicknames, teams, ranks, ratings, and total matches.
- Rankings are based on the previous day’s in-game ratings for Trainers rank 7 and up. The leaderboard is scheduled to update between approximately 8:00 p.m. UTC and 10:00 p.m. UTC every day. (Note that leaderboard updates may be delayed by things such as maintenance.)
- Trainers with active disciplinary action or inappropriate Trainer nicknames will be excluded without prior notice.
As for the Aqua Mouse event, which is set to run this coming Sunday, April 12, here’s how it works:
The more GO Battle League battles you win from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. local time during the event, the more chances you’ll have to encounter Marill!
During this time frame, Marill will appear as a guaranteed Basic Reward after your first and third wins. Use a Premium Battle Pass, and Marill will appear after every win as a guaranteed Premium Reward!
Trainers will also receive 2× Catch Stardust for catching Marill during this time period. Please note that the encounters that serve as rewards for ranking up, such as the Pikachu Libre encounter at rank 10, will stay the same.
Also, Niantic has increased the number of GO Battle League battle sets on April 12 from 5 to 20, for a total of up to 100 battles.
