As players discover, catch and level-up rare Pokémon, they can compete in real-time against friends or across a global leaderboard.
Pokémon Medallion Battle, now available for players in the Asia-Pacific region, is a digital card battle strategy game.
In the game, trainers collect, battle and evolve Pokémon in medallion form and embark on a journey with their companions to win gym badges and complete their “Pokédex”.
Players can also discover new Pokémon — introduced every month — to create even better decks.
