The final Pokémon GO Battle Day for GO Battle League Season 9 is set to take place today from 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. local time.

For those looking to get the most out of GO Battle League Season 9 and achieve their highest possible end-of-season rankings, here's a breakdown of the Nov. 20 Pokémon GO Battle Day.

As outlined in Niantic's initial GO Battle League: Season 9 Update blog post back in August, Nov. 20 marks the third and final GO Battle Day for Season 9.

The previous two Season 9 GO Battle Days took place on Sept. 18 and Nov. 1, respectively, and had the likes of the Ultra League, Ultra League Remix, UL Premier Classic, and the Halloween Cup active.

For today's GO Battle Day, the Master League, ML Premier Classic, and a cup chosen by Trainers will be active.

Additionally, the maximum number of sets trainers can play per day has been increased from five to 20, for a total of 100 battles. Trainers will also earn 4x Stardust from win rewards (this does not include end of set rewards and will not stack with the 3x Stardust bonus).

Since this season of the GO Battle League coincides with the Season of Mischief — featuring the Mythical Pokémon Hoopa — trainers can still encounter various Psychic-, Ghost-, and Dark-type Pokémon as encounter rewards before Season 9 ends on Nov. 29.

Additionally, in celebration of Pokémon first found in the Galar region arriving in Pokémon GO, trainers will be able to encounter Pokémon and earn avatar items inspired by the Champion of the Galar region, Leon.
