A Guide to PVE

VS Seeker

After players have obtained the VS Seeker (from story), they can battle Ace Trainers around the region to gain additional rewards.
To activate the VS Seeker Click

Image

By defeating the Ace Trainers, they will gain experience contributing towards their VS Seeker Level. Some trainers will require higher VS Seeker Levels to battle.
Every Ace Trainer's Pokémon levels adapts to the maximum level of the player's party Pokémon (though they also have a minimum level they can be).
Defeating an Ace Trainer will result in 1 reward based on the level of the trainer. For example a Level 1 Trainer can drop Pokeballs and Potions. A Level 8 Trainer can drop Hyper Potions, Ultra Balls, and even TMs.

VS Seeker has a cooldown after usage of 90 minutes of in game active player time. This means that after 90 minutes of playing, the VS Seeker will be available. Once the VS Seeker is off cooldown, players will be able to use it to re-challenge all the NPCs. Cooldown begins after using the VS Seeker and not when the Trainers are defeated.


Dynamax Invasion

Dynamax Invasion is a 45 minute event that occurs every Friday and Sunday at 1:00am UTC and 6pm UTC.

During an invasion, a random area is selected where Dynamaxed Pokemon have invaded, the area is a set of connected maps.When one is active it will show in the top right

Currently there are 2 -possibly 3- areas where the Dynamaxed Pokémon can spawn:
Lake Verity and Route 201
Eterna Forest and the Old Chateau

Each boss will have 200k HP, and can be battled as many times. You cannot catch a Dynamaxed Pokémon.

Dynamaxed Pokemon HP is shown real-time and shared with every player

Battle mechanics

Dynamaxed Pokémon are set to level 85. They do not have boosted stats, however they do have 252 evs in all stats. They have an unlimited amount of PP, and can have over 4 moves. Currently the 5th move is Haze.

All Dynamaxed Pokemon have an ability called Dynahax which makes them immune to all ability neutralizing effects such as Mold Breaker, etc. As well as moves like Destiny Bond, Endeavor etc.
This includes status like poison,burn, etc.

Rewards

Defeating all the Dynamaxed Pokémon in the area will result in everyone who participated in a battle with any of the Dynamaxed Pokémon to get rewards.
The rewards are based on the damage done ranking on a single boss.

Top 3 in damage to a boss receive 60 Dynite Ores.
Top 10 receive 45
Rank 11-25 receive 35
Rank 25-50 recieve 25
Rank 50- 100 recieve 15
Rank 100+ recieve 10

You can battle multiple Dynamaxed Pokémon, however you only get rewards from one.
The game will automatically determine which Dynamaxed Pokémon you placed higher on in the damage leaderboard, and give you the rewards for only that Pokémon.

The Dynamax Ore Trader is located in the Global Terminal in Jubilife City
