The first week of January at the time of writing, the new Pokemon game, Pokemon-Rumble-Rush, was released for Nintendo 3DS, and I’ve been playing it non-stop since then. The game itself is essentially a rehash of the original Pokemon Red and Blue games, which were the first Pokemon games ever made. However, this one is a bit different from the originals.

The most popular game on the Wii U is Pokemon X & Pokemon Y. The game runs fine on the Wii U, but if you want to play online with the ability to connect to the internet, you may find yourself being unable to connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. If you can connect to the internet but can’t play online, you can choose to play the game offline. Doing so will make the game work regardless.

In Pokémon Rumble Rush, the player decides between either an all-out attack style or a balanced attack and defense style. The goal is to defeat all of the enemies in the stage to win, but once defeated, they’re gone and must be searched for again.

Hunter Boyce is the author of this book.

Hunter Boyce is a writer, which is presumably self-evident given the conspicuous display of the word “author.” He mostly focuses on video games. Previously, he worked as a mixed martial arts news reporter. He works as a web producer in Atlanta when he’s not writing about people punching each other in the face or leveling up in the newest RPG. You can tweet him at @SomthinClever with all of your MMA and video game-related questions. Make your demands to him in ALL CAPS if you want. That is something he adores.
