Pokemon Rumble Rush Just Launched In Australia

Surprise! There's a new Pokemon game for phones, and it just launched in Australia on Android.

It's called Pokemon Rumble Rush, and it's developed by Ambrella, the same developer behind the Pokemon Rumble games on 3DS and Wii U. It's an action game that can be played with one hand, where you tap the screen to attack. You start out with a single Rattata, exploring islands where you capture wild Pokemon.

The objective is to clear stages and levels as fast as possible, collecting upgrades and stronger Pokemon along the way. You unlock different breeds of Pokemon by defeating bosses on each island.

Here's the general outline of gameplay:

• Enjoy fast-paced gameplay on the go
It's easy to control your Pokémon with one hand. Clear stages by controlling your Pokémon as it moves forward. If you see enemy Pokémon, you can attack by just tapping the screen. Tap to engage in exciting gameplay action!

• The islands and seas explored during your adventures change every two weeks
You may find unfamiliar and stronger Pokémon on new islands. So, journey through various islands and seas and collect more and more Pokémon!

• Upgrade Pokémon of your choice
You'll sometimes receive ore when you clear a stage. Refine ore to get power gears that you can use to make your Pokémon stronger. You may even be able to refine ore into a summon gear that calls forth a Pokémon to use a powerful move. Use power gears and summon gears to help your favorite Pokémon do well!

• Test your strength using the Pokémon you've collected
Occasionally, you can earn rewards by working your way through the Super Boss Rush. You'll need many different types of strong Pokémon to win each Super Boss Rush. Harness the power of the Pokémon you've collected from various islands and seas to defeat the powerful Super Bosses.

Pokemon Rumble Rush was announced in Japan earlier today as Pokemon Scramble. You can download Pokemon Rumble Rush for Android now, with an iOS launch in the works.


    Tap to engage in exciting gameplay action!Just how exciting are we talking? I've done some exciting tapping in my life so it's going to have to have me in a pulse pounding sweat on the train to be anywhere near as good.

    Also what's with upgrading Pokémon with gears? Are they really robots in disguise?

      Do you find Pokemon Go combat interesting? Because that is pretty much what this is... with each Pokemon only having one attack rolled up capture.
