A special feature of this game is the ability to bring in Support Pokémon with you. When you start a match, you get to choose a support set which contains two Pokémon and then, at the start of each round you have to select one. You can then activate these Support Pokémon using the L button. After they are used, they will need to recharge before they can be used once more. You can choose the Pokémon in the selectedset at the start of each round.
While in the multiplayer modes, Single Battle and Training modes you can select any of the Support Sets, when you go to the Ferrum League you only get a choice of three Support sets. These can be altered in the My Town area of the game under the Pokémon settings at any time.
There are a total of 15 Support sets, each with their own unique effects which can both aid you and hinder your enemy.
There are three types of Support Attacks: Attack, which just does damage, Disrupt which can damage but also has a massive effect on the opponent, and Enhance which boosts your capabilities.
