A global powerhouse for nearly 30 years, Pokémon has been played completely since it’s inception in 1996 by Game Freak and Nintendo. The focus on building a competitive team has grown increasingly complex over the years, as a team of 6 Pokémon of various types can create incredible diversity and opportunity in the right trainer’s hands.

A Nintendo exclusive, players will need a compatible Nintendo system such as the Nintendo Switch to train and compete. A stable internet connection and other players and trainers are also recommended.

Each player has a team of 6 Pokémon. Each Pokémon has various types which also makes them stronger and weaker against others. They also come with a variety of skills, hidden stats that can be increased by leveling up or with selected in game items. Each Pokémon can also learn 4 moves that have different effect and type assignments themselves, encouraging the player to create not only a balanced team, but a balanced move set within each Pokémon.

There are many different types of cars to choose from, some are more bulky and long while some are small and short. You should pick your car type according to your playstyle and strategy. Whatever you choose as your strategy, you should always cooperate with your teammates and not always run straight after the ball. You should give passes and cross the ball into the goal area.

Understanding the layers of complex systems in Pokémon can be daunting when building a team. Players will need to understand and master game mechanics, type effectiveness, special and physical moves, stat mechanics, natures and much more.

The Pokémon Company has held its invite only event, the Pokémon World Championships since its 2004 that sees the very best ranked trainers compete on the grandest stage available, internationally. Trainers compete for cash prizes, scholarships, and more as they battle for the title of World Champion.
