Pokémon Rumble World is one of the games coming out this week on the Nintendo 3DS eShop, in Europe, and it is free to start. In this one, you’re tasked by a King to help him build his collection of Pokémon toys. To do so, you have to go and battle hordes of Pokémon toys, in order to catch them. There’s over 700 toys to get (based on pretty much all the existing Pokémon, from Red / Green to Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire!), and some of them can even Mega Evolve.
During battles, you can switch between Pokémon, in order to take on powerful foes. Since types have their own strengths/weaknesses (just like in the mainline games), it’s recommended to switch regularly. To get more Pokémon toys, you can buy hot-air balloons in order to reach faraway areas (click here to learn more about microtransactions!). Finally, you can show off your progress to other players when you meet them via StreetPass.
