It's a Free-For-All battle but when the first trainer loses all their Pokémon, the game ends and players are tallied up by defeated Pokémon and remaining Pokémon and that determines the winner.
Edit @ 17:55: Our New Pokémon Page has been updated with the two new Pokémon. A new trailer has also been added Edit @ 17:56: A new Pokémon has been revealed called Grubbin. It is a Bug-type and its ability is Swarm
