A major update has been released for the smartphone game Pokémon Duel, adding a bunch of new content and new ways to play.

Certain Pokémon will now be able to change their forms during battle, adding a new layer to your dueling antics. The legendary Pokémon Kyurem is now available, and in the right deck it’ll be able to change its form to both Black Kyurem and White Kyurem; this makes sense as the legendary Pokémon Reshiram and Zekrom have also been introduced. All three of these Pokémon are available in the 'April 2018 Recommended Booster A' and the 'April 2018 Booster 10-pack A'.

As well as this, a new social feature introduces the ability to follow other players and track their progress in-game - you'll even receive special items if you follow enough players, and more if you have enough players following you in return. A brand new tournament mode is coming to the game soon (with a pre-tournament set to take place to preview the feature) so keeping an eye on the strongest decks from your friends would be a smart move.

If you haven't already, you can grab yourself a copy of Pokémon Duel for free from the App Store, Amazon Appstore for Android, and on Google Play.
