In Pokémon Rumble, available on WiiWare from the Wii Shop Channel, up to four players take control of hundreds of Toy Pokémon , battling in ‘top-down’ arcade action through a variety of areas chock-a-block full with foe Pokémon. As you are successful, new and more powerful Pokémon can be recruited and you can earn coins, called “P”, which let you recruit new Pokémon and change the attacks of your Pokémon recruits.
Once you’ve found a sufficiently powerful Pokémon it’s time to enter the Battle Royale, where you must defeat a horde of Pokémon within a strict time limit. Completing a Battle Royale allows you to progress to the next Rank, unlocking more challenging areas and more powerful Pokémon for your collection, with the ultimate goal of becoming Pokémon Rumble champion.
