    Pokémon Ga-Olé is a collectible card-based turn-based strategy game developed by Takara Tomy A.R.T.S. (along with Marvelous) and released by Takara Tomy A.R.T.S. for arcades in Japan on July 7, 2016. It was later discontinued on September 17, 2020 in favor of its successor, Pokémon Mezastar.

    A spin-off of the Pokémon RPG series and a successor to Pokémon Tretta, Pokémon Ga-Olé uses a new type of tile (or "disks") to represent different Pokémon. Much of the gameplay is similar to Tretta, although the game is now played in a two-on-two format and has updated gameplay mechanics (such as the "Attack Gauge", which is used to determine who attacks next, and the "Defense Roulette" for defending against attacks).

    The game uses a new unique arcade cabinet that utilizes the full screen (rather than sectioned-off parts). Rather than a dial controller, the game uses a special lever controller that replicates the series' traditional Poké Ball. Similar to the previous games, players can use a special IC card (which is now known as the "Ga-Olé Pass") to track player progress. New to the series is a special reader used for scanning QR codes and interacting with the Pokémon Z-Ring peripheral.

    The game received multiple revisions (Dash, Ultra Legend, and Grand Rush), some of which change certain gameplay mechanics, and multiple expansion sets (each adding new selections of disks). In 2020, the game was discontinued and replaced by its incompatible successor, Pokémon Mezastar.
