Pokemon has had single battles and double battles since Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire, but Pokemon Black and White introduces Triple Battles. Triple battles are like double battles except that each trainer gets three pokemon at once. Choosing which pokemon you want to attack is a little different this time. The pokemon on the left side can only attack the opponent's right side and middle. The pokemon on the right side can only attack the opponent's left side and middle. The pokemon in the middle has an advantage, and that is when using and attack that damages all its foes, it does more damage than the pokemon to the side. There will probably be a lot of triple battles in Pokemon Black and White. For those who have played Pokemon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum, you fought the Team Galactic commanders with your friend in a double battle. It will probably be the same when fighting Team Plasma, except in Triple Battle form.
