The Ancient Portal is a building allowing the Trainer to travel from the Archipelago to the Campaign Map.

Building Functions

The following function buttons appear when the building is selected:

  1. Upgrade Button.pngUpgrade, for upgrading the building (appears if upgrades are available).
  2. Campaign Map Button.pngTravel, for traveling to the Campaign Map and its different modes.
  3. Golden Ancient Portal Button.png / Ancient Portal Button.pngAppearance, for toggling between the portal between default and Golden Portal appearance (appears at VIP Level 11+)
  4. Information 2 Button.pngInformation, provides an information panel (appears when fully upgraded).


Upgrading increases the Ancient Portal's level, which determines the base number of Portal Energy Icon.png Portal Energy used to Battle on the Campaign Map. Upgrading the Portal costs a fixed number of Gems per level.

To upgrade the structure, select the portal, press the Upgrade Button.png button, then the Instant Upgrade   Gems Icon.png button. Each time the Portal is upgraded, both the Portal Energy and the Arena Energy replenish. Portal level does not affect the 'base' amount of Arena Energy, that amount is only affected by VIP Status.

The Portal size is 7x7 squares, regardless of level, making it the largest movable building. Additionally, the building's appearance stays the same regardless of level.

Traveling is done by selecting the Portal and then pressing the Campaign Map Button.png button. Returning from the Campaign Map is done by pressing the X button in the top-right corner of the screen.

Golden Portal

Trainers of VIP Level 11 and above can switch between the normal appearance of the Portal Ancient Portal Button.png and a golden variant Golden Ancient Portal Button.png by pressing either button, which toggles between the two. The Golden Portal is a skin for the Ancient Portal, it serves no purpose apart from aesthetic enhancement. The Golden Portal option can be used when VIP Status is inactive, as once obtained it is a permanent benefit regardless of VIP Status.

Information Button

The Information 2 Button.png Information button, when pressed, provides information about the portal's current level. This button only appears once the portal is fully upgraded, though the same information can be seen at prior levels by pressing the Upgrade Button.png Upgrade button.

Visiting Location

Though visiting is not done through the Ancient Portal, the portal still serves as an "anchor" of sorts when visiting another Trainer's island; the visitor lands on (visually) whatever island the portal is placed on. By default, the portal is placed on the Main Island, but can be moved to other locations.


A single object is moved by pressing and holding it until move options activate, indicated by X Edit Mode Icon.png Check Mark Icon.png buttons below it and colored move arrows on each side. Green move arrows indicate sufficient placeable space, grey arrows indicate not enough. Moved the object by dragging, tapping the move arrows, or tapping the destination, then pressing Check Mark Icon.png. A moved is cancelled by pressing X.

Edit Mode can be used to move multiple objects at once, when move options are activated as described above, press the Edit Mode Icon.png button. Once enabled, moving and/or swapping instructions appear:

  • Select one or more objects to move them at the same time.
  • Swap two objects by selecting them and tapping Swap Icon.png.
  • Store multiple objects in inventory by selecting them and tapping Inventory Icon.png (eligible buildings/objects only).

Dragging or tapping does not move objects in Edit Mode, the initial state is selection-only; instead, tapping the Move (Green) Icon.png button enables dragging or tapping, the base of all objects turn green or grey indicating if there's enough placeable space to move the items to as a unit.

Added Edit Mode Notes
  • Selected objects are moved exactly parallel to their former positions, any chosen destination must have the corresponding spaces freed and placeable for a successful move.
  • If all selected items are eligible to moved into inventory, the Inventory Icon.png Inventory button appears below the last item selected, pressing it moves these into inventory; the button does not appear if any item is ineligible for inventory.
  • Objects cannot be selected from different islands at the same time.
