With thanks to Zynm for assisting in translations, this section gives the basic mechanics of the gameplay, which features a 3 on 3 Pokémon Battle, to show the uniqueness of this game as well as the details of the collectable disks utilised for the game. It also contains a comprehensive BattrioDex, which shows all the Pokémon whom have been released as part of Battrio.
