|1||Battle Maison’s Exchange Service Corner – 32 BP||Yes|
The only way to obtain a Ring Target in Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire is by visiting the Battle Maison’s Exchange Service Corner. Here you can exchange 32 Battle Points (BP) for a Ring Target, and you can do this an unlimited number of times.
The Battle Maison facility is situated at the Battle Resort, an island which only becomes accessible after completing the Delta Episode.
Getting Ring Targets (Step-by-Step)
The Battle Maison operates similarly to the Battle Tower from previous generations. Winning battles in this battle facility rewards you with BP, which can be exchanged for a variety of items at the Exchange Service Corner, located within the entrance hall.
If you don’t know where the Battle Maison is, just head over to the Battle Resort’s Pokémon Center to get started.
Step 1: From the Battle Resort’s Pokémon Center, proceed slightly east and then head up the staircase at the nearby intersection.
Step 2: After going up the stairs, just keep going north and enter the Battle Maison.
Step 3: Once you’re inside, you’ll see two staircases going upstairs. Head up the right one.
Step 4: On the second floor, you’ll find one of the Exchange Service Corner’s attendants. If you’ve got 32 BP, you can purchase the Ring Target from her.
In the Exchange Service Corner, two attendants offer a wide variety of valuable items in exchange for BP.
The left attendant sells Vitamins, EV training items, and evolution items. The right attendant sells held items used in battles, including the Ring Target.
Here’s a complete list of items offered as prizes by the attendant on the right:
|Flame Orb||16 BP||Choice Band||48 BP|
|Toxic Orb||16 BP||Choice Scarf||48 BP|
|Absorb Bulb||32 BP||Choice Specs||48 BP|
|Cell Battery||32 BP||Expert Belt||48 BP|
|Eject Button||32 BP||Focus Band||48 BP|
|Luminous Moss||32 BP||Focus Sash||48 BP|
|Power Herb||32 BP||Iron Ball||48 BP|
|Red Card||32 BP||Life Orb||48 BP|
|Ring Target||32 BP||Muscle Band||48 BP|
|Snowball||32 BP||Razor Claw||48 BP|

Earning BP (Quick Guide)
Now that you’re at the Battle Maison, it’s time to earn some BP to purchase your Ring Target.
To accumulate BP, you’ll have to take on the trainers in this battle facility. The various battle challenges here serve as the primary means of earning BP in the game.
Just beyond the curtains between the two Exchange Service Corners, you’ll find the arena where the battles will take place. Speak to the receptionist right next to the PC to start the challenge.
Then you can assemble your most formidable team and select your preferred battle format from the following options:
|Battle Format||Number of Eligible Pokémon||Description|
|Single Battle||3||A one-on-one battle.|
|Double Battle||4||A two-on-two battle.|
|Triple Battle||6||A three-on-three battle.|
|Rotation Battle||4||A three-on-three battle, with only one Pokémon fighting at a time. You can rotate between them during the battle.|
|Multi Battle||2 per player (4 total)||You team up with another Trainer and fight in a two-on-two format.|
With each victory, you’re awarded BP. And longer win streaks give you even more BP.
When you defeat the Battle Chatelaine on the 20th battle in the Normal Rank, you unlock the Super Rank for that battle format. The Super Rank offers a tougher challenge, notably featuring a rematch with a Battle Chatelaine on the 50th match.
Check the table below to see how much BP you can earn per victory:
|Win Streak||Normal Rank||Super Rank|
|20 (Battle Chatelaine)||20||3|
|50 (Battle Chatelaine)||–||50|
However, be aware that losing a battle will break your streak and force you to start a new challenge to keep earning more BP.
Since levels are set to 50 and you can’t use healing items, a solid strategy and fully trained Pokémon are crucial for success in the Battle Maison.
How the Ring Target Works
The Ring Target is a held item that makes the holder susceptible to all move types, removing its usual type immunities. The table below lists types and their respective immunities that are removed by holding the Ring Target:
|Pokemon Type||Immunity Without Ring Target|
You might be asking: isn’t removing type immunities a disadvantage?
Indeed, it is.
That’s why the Ring Target is meant to be given to an opponent’s Pokémon through moves like Trick or Switcheroo. These allow you to swap the held items of your Pokémon and the target.
This strategy makes your foes vulnerable to moves they would typically be immune to, while also taking away their existing held item.
However, it’s not worth the effort to merely make the opponent vulnerable to moves that might not even be super effective.
This is why the Ring Target sees no play in competitive battles. You’re probably better off using your hard-earned BP on other held items instead.
