New Pokemon Game Released From Nowhere, Out Now
Pokemon Duel is a new free-to-play board game for mobile.
Pokemon Duel doesn't contain the same rock-paper-scissors combat as the mainline games. Instead, it's a turn-based board game in which you move Pokemon counters to the opponent's side of the arena. Clashes between friendly and enemy counters result in a duelling mini-game.
Duel does, however, retain the collectible element of other Pokemon games. Using in-game currency, you can unlock chests containing new Pokemon counters for use in battle.
Nintendo will launch a new console, the Switch, in March. It lets users play games at home and on the go, but Nintendo believes the Switch and the 3DS can successfully coexist. A new Pokemon game, codenamed Stars, is rumored to be in development for the hybrid console.
