Additional stardust per win. I don't think Ace adds another pokemon to the capture pool

Thanks!

You get a glove. Not a pair of gloves, but one glove. It’s so dumb.

You get more dust for end of set and win rewards and a piece of the season outfit. If it's worth it or not is up to you. I will say that ace is the equivalent of around silver if you are familiar with mobas. It's really not a crazy grind and any amount of competence, double moves, 1500 cp pokemon, and any semblance of a cohesive team will get you there easy, potentially immediately after you get your mmr after rank 20.


C21Campbell

Gotcha, so I'll get there naturally if i keep at it. Thanks for the info

If you’re below level 20 in pvp you’ll get legendary Pokémon too. Didn’t see anybody mention it

Once you hit rank 20 you have to do one set minimum at rank 20 and if your mmr after that set is 2000 or above (even if you lose that set horribly) you will be awarded Ace

>or if I'm better off tanking three sets and sweeping the last two for candies. Not what you asked, but it sounds like you don't understand the reward structure(?) If you win two sets (loose three) you get the two first reward bundles (that contain no candy). Only the number of wins matters, not the order of wins and losses### Edit: as pointed out below the "set" meant a group of five battles: loosing three of those (first 15 battles) to tank and easily beating the last two indeed is a reasonable strtegy from certain point of view (when you are not planning to hit higer rank than 20, or donät want maximise the number of legendary encounters)


Legohed

A set consists of 5 matches. So op believes he’ll win the last 2 sets from his 5 daily allowance 4/5-0 to earn at least 6 rare candy. Edited to say: Yes, benefit of extra stardust is always welcome.

Aht yes, your interpetation makes sense.
