Pokemon Scramble Brings Real Time Poke-Action To WiiWare

#1 Posted by Linkyshinks (11407 posts) -


The official Japanese Pokemon website has revealed a new and exciting WiiWare battle game - Melee! Pokemon Scramble.

Unlike most of the previous games in the franchise, it won't be a turn-based affair, instead it sees you running about as a weak monster initially, beating up fellow weaker Pokemon and recruiting as you progress by using the Wii remote on its side (1+2) or nunchuck (A+B).

  •   Developed by Pokemon Ranch creator Ambrella.
  •  Battle Royal mode - pitting your monsters in, well, a giant pitt where you'll be facing off one another in a huge free-for-all. Available after reaching a certain level in single player.
  • 4 player multiplayer mode, friends can bring across their monsters by saving them onto the Wii Remote.
  •  Passwords and boss battles used to find rarer Pokemon and legendaries.
  •  Camera-lovers can also take a pic or two whilst exploring.
  •  Available in Japan from June 16th for 1500 Wii points.

That's not what I had in mind when I thought they should make a Pokemon game for the Wii with real time combat.

I was thinking Pokemon XD next-gen with a huge world, game boy addictiveness and battles that have you ordering your pokemons' abilities.

It certainly looks better than Ranch though. I'm not sure if it's 1500 points worth of better though.

If I had a Wii, I just might be down. Not in public, of course... But I'd be down.
