Although with the recent hype of Pokemon franchise (Especially with the release of Pokemon GO and Pokemon Sun and Moon), Pokemon duel doesn’t really do well. Of course people had been playing, but because of its connectivity issues, the game had been rated poorly. If you can get past the connectivity issues, the game is actually pretty fun. Kinda like a Board games + Chess games + Pokemon games combine.

The rules, as stated above is pretty simple. You can try it in the tutorial to learn it, but for those that wants to skip the tutorial, here is the list of it:

You roll the palate, to select which is the first player, you or your opponents (Oh and you can also see your opponent Pokemon when you roll the palate). It is completely random, you can be first or last. After that, notice the number that your Pokemon had, it is the number that you can move at that turn. You can only move and attack one time.

While attacking, notice 2 roulette contain skills and number. There are no elements in this games, so if you use vine whip to attack water Pokemon, there will be no 2x effect. The only thing that matter in this games is the number contain in each roulette. If you had a flame tail with 40 attacks, and bubble with 25 attack for example. The one that will win is the flame tail one, even if flame is weaker than bubble.

This game had a lot potential, if they didn’t stray too much of the Pokemon game, that involve elements and stuff, but over all. The game is pretty fun to play, and is definitely worth to download.
