As the name suggests, Small Battlefield is a slightly smaller version of Battlefield. The main change from the original Battlefield is that the top platform is removed, and the two soft platforms of Small Battlefield are slightly closer together than the bottom two platforms of normal Battlefield. This also makes it fairly similar to the hazards-off versions of Pokémon Stadium and Pokémon Stadium 2. Additionally, the stage's blast zones are identical to that of Final Destination.
Visually, Small Battlefield has the exact same background as Battlefield. It is set in a futuristic ruins-like setting, while having other floating islands with crumbled buildings on them in the background.
Ω form and Battlefield form
Small Battlefield has been warmly received by the competitive community, which had lamented the lack of small stages appropriate for competitive play, and the consequent slant in stage lists towards large and/or open stages. However, its layout has been deemed fairly similar to Pokémon Stadium 2, albeit with several notable differences such as their size, sparking some debate on which of the two stages should be considered neutral instead of a counterpick, or kept on the stage list altogether. Because of its recent release and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic causing a stark drop in offline tournaments, prospects on the future adoption of Small Battlefield as a legal stage are still unclear.
