‘Pokemon Duel’ Now Available in English For Android and iOS!

Released almost a year ago in Japan, the freemium board game app Pokemon Comaster has now been released in English, but under the new title of Pokemon Duel. It is available for download right now in the Google Play and Apple stores.

The game is a strategy board game in which you try to move your Pokemon figures to your opponent’s goal spot before they reach yours. It is loosely based on the Pokemon TFG. You have a “deck” of Pokemon figures that you collect and use, each with different attacks and characteristics you use to battle your way to your opponent’s side of the field. Like most freemium games, it’s free to play, but you can pay to get a better experience.

Pokemon Duel is a strategy board game that uses virtual Pokemon figures. Build a deck with your favorite figures and then leap into a League Match! Compete with players from around the world for a chance to enter the top League rankings in League Matches. You’ll fight your rivals in real time! Win duels, get all kinds of cool figures and items, and make your deck stronger!

Update: Pokemon just uploaded an English trailer.

    I've just downloaded this game onto my phone after reading this news article and it's in maintenance! :mad: Not a terrible thing or anything -- just a shame that they didn't wait to release the final product until it was fully complete, since already there are a lot of bad reviews from non-sensical kids on the app store like "this is boring game". No duh, you haven't played it yet! :p

    I'll post again later on with my first impressions of the game once it's done with maintenance. I'm actually quite excited, because I didn't know this was a thing even in Japanese until just now, so it's a lovely surprise.

    Ugh...well it better be good if it's being worked on. It'd be boss if the figures also worked in other games too.

    Except that the figures are digital only, so no cool little Pokémon Duel figures for us.

    Are they released in Canada? I don't see it yet, on App Store or Google Play.
     
  6. @Celever let us know how the game is. I'm still on dat Pokémon Go grind (even though I don't go as hard) but have found myself obsessing over YGO Duel Links more than anything else right now. I always prefer to support Pokémon, but man this app is just way more than I expected and is so much fun.

    What are the in-app purchases, just different figures or what? Can't download the game because I don't have space on my phone lol

    Honestly they should have brought back the TFG instead of this judging by how awesome the figures look... as for the game itself don't have opinions on it yet, it's still downloading

    I think that having physical figures and integrating those with the mobile game is just not going to happen unfortunately, since Apple doesn't get any revenue from them. I believe they ended up taking down the iPad version of PTCGO because of the codes, until the programmers removed that feature from the mobile version entirely.

    I really wish that it would speed up the opponent finding process some more because it takes me about 8 minutes to find one opponents :(

    When I first heard about this thing I was excited about it, however in the time that past since then I've simply lost interest in it.

    This seems like their way of trying to fit in with all the card strategy games like clash royal and other ones, which I guess looks ok.

    Look at release date for the original Pokemon Trading Figure Game. :D
    This game has around 10 years! And yes, you still can buy some figurines (check on ebay :p )

    Yeah the TFG was awesome unfortunately it was discontinued after the first set (Next Quest) but sets 2 and 3 figures are available though some are $100+

    Decent game. Bit like clash royale really. A little confusing on certain parts as well as hard to obtain gems. Only thing I really hate is that I haven't a actually played a game with someone other than the rival.

    The second day was waaaaaaaaay better than "opening day" , the load times are shorter (i played 5 ranked match in like 30 minutes) the figures are cool (as you may think the rares and EX figures are the cooler, that animation on Ex pokemon is sick) this is a game you can call..."easy to play , difficult to master".
