Players can go to the Global Trading and Battling Building, located in Jublife City, to trade Pokemon. Inside, the player can challenge players in battles or trade Pokemon. The trader puts a Pokemon up for trading, and other traders show their offers. The original trader then chooses the best trade and the Pokemon are traded (For example, someone wants to trade Zangoose. Ditto, Mewtwo, and Vanillish are offered. The trader chose Ditto, so Ditto and Zangoose are traded. The offerer can either choose Pokemon from their party or from their PC system.
Much like trading, players can go into the Global Trading and Battling Building to battle online. On the second floor, players can go to the Battle Machine. They can then choose Single Battle, Double, Triple, Rotation, or the new Team Battle. Team Battle is where two trainers work together to fight two other trainers. In Team Battle, players choose three Pokemon to make six altogether on one team. There is no Team Rotation Battle. Players also can choose their sprite from NPCs in the game. Also for the first time, players can choose their theme song for the opponent to hear from previous games.
