Game Profile

Take on the role of a young Warlord who is linked with a Pokémon.

Together with your Pokémon, you must set out to recruit Warrior allies to strengthen your growing kingdom. Along your journey, you will encounter a variety of Pokémon, as well as Warriors and Warlords inspired by the Japanese feudal era which fans of the famous Nobunaga’s Ambition series of games will recognize. The game contains nearly 200 Pokémon, including many from the Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version games, which have sold more than 4 million copies combined in the U.S.

As the battlefield unfolds in Pokémon Conquest, you must choose the correct Pokémon type to inflict maximum damage on your opponent. The turn-based skirmishes, allow you to choose different tactics for intense 6-on-6 battles, and battle conditions can change on every turn, keeping you on your toes in anticipation of what will happen next.


It’s a new way to play Pokémon in a land filled with Warriors and Pokémon and the ties that bind them together.

The main action of the game takes place on the battlefield where Pokémon fight in a turn-based, tactical battle system.

Be a Warlord, and control your Pokémon in battle! As a Warlord, you command other Warriors and their Pokémon in your army.

All Warriors have special abilities they can use to help their Pokémon in battle, but Warriors are there to command the Pokémon on the field of battle. It is their Pokémon that move, fight, attack on the field of battle.

Recruit Warlords and Warriors by defeating them in a unique battle system never seen in a Pokémon game. As you acquire castles, new Pokémon, Warlords, and Warriors become available as well as new ways to train them.

When battles are won, you take control of the new castle, recruit Warriors from that kingdom, and gain access to new Pokémon.

I really like this game so far, I just started playing and it scratches my tactics itch. Its not as super deep as some tactics games, but there are plenty of decisions to be made. It also has many of the features you'd expect in this genre for good gameplay. I'm actually glad the pokemon only have one main attack since you will have so many of them + warriors to choose from.

I'm curious what their review will be here. I was very surprised (and happy) to see IGN rate it highly.

I'm actually enjoying this more than I did with Pokemon Black.
But Pokemon HeartGold will still be my favourite of all the Pokemon games.
