Prior to Generation 5 and the introduction of reusable TMs, most competitive Pokemon were dependent on single-use TMs to diversify their learnset. Calm Mind by level up, for instance, saw an extremely limited distribution to a total of about 15 Pokemon; but as TM04 in Generation 4, its distribution increased more than fivefold. Multiple copies of Calm Mind, as well as a plethora of TMs and held items integral to competitive Gen 4 Pokemon, are gatekept behind Pokemon Platinum's, Heartgold's, and Soulsilver's Battle Frontier, where Battle Points or BP for short can be exchanged for these prizes. The Battle Frontier is split into five different facilities and each awards BP for progressively longer win streaks. Four of these facilities, the Battle Tower, the Battle Factory, the Battle Arcade, and the Battle Castle, awards players 20 BP and commemorative silver and gold prints at 21 and 49 wins, respectively. However, the fifth facility, the Battle Hall, awards the same 20 BP and commemorative silver and gold prints but at 50 and 170 wins, respectively, seemingly making the Battle Hall the far inferior.
