Tomy today announced a July Japan-wide debut of Pokémon Battrio (ポケモンバトリオ), a Pokémon arcade game that is similar to Wii's Pokémon Battle Revolution. However, unlike previous Pokémon games, players can hold three-on-three battles, and Pokémon characters are animated using cel shading. Players control their Pokémon via data-containing pucks placed on a playing field. According to Pokeani, the compatibility of the Pokémon placed in certain formations will sway the battles' outcomes.


Thirty-six Pokémon will be available from the game's start. The game will be playable at June's World Hobby Fair in Tokyo.

One five-minute game will cost 100 yen. According to Pokeani, the target age for the game's players is approximately six years old.
