There you will be able to explore a giant terrarium split between 4 unique biomes each with its own unique Pokemon: the subtropical savannah biome, lush coastal biome, canyon biome, and polar biome.

At Blueberry Academy you’ll also challenge the BB League, a group of students at Blueberry Academy with their own Elite Four comprised of students Lacey, Crispin, Amarys, and Drayton.

Finally, you’ll be able to take part in trials, decorate your own clubroom, customize your Pokeball throwing style, and invite trainers from the base game to help you.
