In the Generation V Pokemon games, two types of battles were introduced – Triple Battles and Rotational Battles.
These two new types of battles were loved by fans and many hoped they would be carried over to Pokemon Sword and Shield. Unfortunately, similar to Mega Evolution and Z-Moves, they have been placed on the chopping block of cut features from Sword and Shield.
The official Japanese Pokemon Sword and Shield website has confirmed that the only two types of battle rules are Single Battles and Double Battles, confirming that Triple Battles and Rotational Battles won’t be making an appearance in Sword and Shield:
Translated by NintendoSoup:
“There are two types of battle rules in Pokemon Sword and Shield – Single Battles and Double Battles. You can choose either of these in both Ranked Battles and Casual Battles.”
