Pokémon Rumble (WiiWare)

Game Profile

Available exclusively for the WiiWare service, Pokémon Rumble is an action game in which you control Toy Pokémon (referred to as "Pokémon") and take on wave after wave of other Pokémon in a variety of stages.

You can befriend some of the defeated Pokémon along the way, which lets you add them to your collection and grants you the ability to use them in battle. Switch between collected Pokémon at any time, taking advantage of the fact that the amount of damage you deal depends on the type of move used and the type of Pokémon hit. Be the last one standing to gain the right to compete in the Battle Royale and test your skills against many Pokémon at once.

You can also team up with three people for some multiplayer action (additional Wii Remote controllers required), working together to take down tough Bosses and earning points that can be used toward recruiting or training Pokémon. You can even save your favorite Pokémon to your Wii Remote™ controller for exchanges with friends. Combining beautiful cel-shaded graphics and exciting game-play features, this is one rumble you won't want to miss. Note that a demo version of Pokémon Rumble is also available for zero Wii Points.

It's reported that North America will get ready to Pokemon Rumble on November 16, 2009. The only problem about this game is that it's limited to Pokemon from the Kanto and Sinnoh regions.

Kurachi said:

and i read that its rpg-ish too, but was hoping for a video here at least, oh well, i'll see later whether i buy or not :)

I have watched tons of YouTube videos on it but I just can't decide to get it. It looks good and all but the $15.00 and all is a big pushover. Not to mention that it looks repetitive.
