The gameplay of the strategic board game of Pokémon is designed beautifully and clear instructions are provided to understand the game. You are offered to select six Pokémon figures before the start of each duel. This game contains all kind of Pokémon, each of them having a different level of strength and a set number of steps they can take, so you need to choose them very carefully and wisely.
You land next to one of your opponent’s Pokémon and then engage in battles, which are determined by the attacks on each Pokémon’s Data Disk. You need to spin the disk in order to reveal the attack that each Pokémon will be able to use. The Pokémon which comes up with the highest damage knocks the other monster off the board temporarily. You’re allowed to see your opponent’s deck before each battle, so you can use that to judge how you’re matched up.
You must either knock out the opposing Pokémon or cause it to move out of your way. Also, there is a plate available at the start of your turn having different effects, for example, you can swap the position of your Pokémon in play, or give them different enhancements for that particular turn. This game also includes some fascinating effects like poison reducing their attack, or paralysis causing a Pokémon to lose a turn.
There is also a time limit for each player, if the player does not make the move within the time limit, they lose a turn. So you must know how and where to efficiently position, block and attack with your Pokémon in a limited time in order to win this game.
