The battle with Battle Mall Captain uses Flat leveling function from the Pokémon Battle Revolution to test trainers’ ability. All Soon’s Pokémon team is mostly unevolved and were hardly used in most battles, but they were properly trained and battled competitively. It is dub as the Joker Team by the some fans. Some of the Challengers had their face turned blue when their exotic Legendries are being defeated by them. Some challenges felt pressured when they realize that their Pokémon can hardly touch the Battle Mall Captain’s Pokémon, while some who knows their stuff, won the Challenge with breeze.
Total number of registered Challengers: 228
Total number of Challengers that Cleared Silver Challenge: 108
