The Pokémon Company today launched its newest game designed for iOS devices, debuting Pokémon Duel. Pokémon Duel is a strategy board game where the goal is to collect a range of different Amiibo-style Pokémon figures, each of which has unique abilities.

Six Pokémon figures are used to build a deck, and with a deck, players can compete with other gamers around the world in ranked League Matches.


According to the app's description, the object of each game is to be the first player to get a figure to the other player's goal, carefully choosing a route and using strategy to outmaneuver an opponent.

The rules are simple! The object is to be the first player to get one of your figures to your opponent's goal. How will you get to the goal? You'll need to carefully choose your route! In duels, you and your opponent take turns moving your figures. Set up a strategic formation and attack your opponent, or simply block their path--it's all about tactics! Plan your strategy and defeat your opponents in this game of cat and mouse!

Pokémon Duel is compatible with iPhones and iPads running iOS 8 or higher. The game is free to play, but includes gems that can be purchased in-app to speed up and enhance gameplay.

Those digital figures look like they would fetch a lot of cash in the "toys-to-life" genre. My kids love the amiibo Pokemon figures.
Probably... but the required NFC antenna is restricted in iOS.

Anyway, just one less thing for adult nerds to hoard.
