The special battle rules for season 5 have been revealed! Season 5 will run from 07/18/2017 12:00 AM - 09/11/2017 11:59 PM UTC, and uses the Inverse Battle rules. This means that the type matchup chart is reversed! Moves that would normally be Super-effective are now Not Very Effective, and moves that would normally be Not Very Effective are now Super-effective! This lets some interesting Pokemon that are usually let down by their poor defensive typing really shine! All other rules are identical to standard Battle Spot Singles!
