Pokémon Pinball

System: Game Boy Color Release date: 06/10/2000

Rumble while you ramble in an all-new scramble to catch 'em all. Pokémon Pinball challenges Pokémon Trainers with a whole new way to catch all 150 Pokémon. To become the world's greatest Pokémon Trainer, players have to catch and evolve Pokémon by playing pinball. Portable pinball has never been like this, because Pokémon Pinball is the first Game Pak from Nintendo with a built-in rumble feature. As your Poké Ball bounces around the table you'll be able to feel the impact as the cartridge sends vibrations through the Game Boy and into your hands. To get the best Pokémon collection around, you'd best have a tight grip. All of the pinball action takes place on either a Blue or Red table, where Pokémon are used as obstacles and bumpers. The targets on the tables are straight from the Pokémon universe, and instead of a metal ball you use a Poké Ball to rack up points. You can capture all 151 Pokémon from the Red and Blue versions of the game by hitting targets and earning high scores, but some Pokémon will only appear on a Blue table or a Red table, just like the original Pokémon games. Each captured Pokémon automatically appears in the Pokédex, and rare Pokémon will begin to appear as you earn higher scores. The Poké Ball can be upgraded to a Great Ball or a Master Ball, which is crucial equipment for Trainers who are serious about catching all 151 Pokémon. You'll have to find hidden bonus stages to maximise your score, which can be saved and transformed into stickers by using the Game Boy Printer (sold separately). There's no need to brag when you have your high score printed on stickers - that's undeniable proof of your pinball power. Pinball is fun no matter how you approach it, but when you put Pokémon and pinball together you've got one of the most addictive Paks around.
