Poke­mon Go launched in July 2016 and it took the world by storm, quick­ly becom­ing the #1 down­loaded game on  mobile devices. Poke­mon Go’s suc­cess was quick­ly fol­lowed by the launch of Poke­mon Sun & Moon that also did extreme­ly well, I would of thought with­out doubt the world would be going crazy about the release of a new Poke­mon game, espe­cial for mobile devices.

In a stealth launch that can only be con­sid­ered art, Poke­mon Duel is now avail­able for free for iOS and Android devices on the App Store and Google Play store.

The Offi­cial Poke­mon Duel web­site tells us, in Poke­mon Duel we col­lect Poke­mon Fig­ures and use them to bat­tle oth­er train­ers online.

In Poké­mon Duel, your objec­tive is to deploy your Poké­mon fig­ures on the game board and move them to the goal in your opponent’s ter­ri­to­ry. To win the game, you have to reach your goal before your oppo­nent reach­es theirs!”

You have 6 Poke­mon fol­low­ing you, each with dif­fer­ent strengths and num­ber of steps they can take. Poke­mon Duel isn’t a straight up bat­tle game, its more like a strat­e­gy board game, you will have to be smart when assign­ing Poke­mon to attack and which Poke­mon to defend you.

Poke­mon Duel con­tains micro trans­ac­tions so if you dont like those or free to play games you might want to stay away from this one. Hon­est­ly who does­n’t want more Poke­mon games to enjoy? Will you be down­load­ing Poke­mon Duel?
