What It Is
What It Is
There's a new way for kids to train and battle to become a Pokémon master. With the Pop 'n Battle Launcher, aim your Pokémon for the target so that the target closes up around the Pokémon character. The Poké Ball Launcher pops open and reveals a one-inch Pokémon figure on a sliding base. Kids then launch this figure into battle toward the target. If a successful attack is launched, the target will snap closed on the figure. The side of the attack target that lands face up then determines the strength and effectiveness of each attack and ties into a larger game play experience. You can get one to four damage points, miss completely, or block the damage inflicted by your opponents. Players can play solo or challenge other Pokémon players to battles.
Why It’s Fun
In Pokémon, battle is everything, and the Pop 'n Battle Launcher offers great skill and action play for young Pokémon battlers. Kids can practice on their own to develop the skill necessary for landing the Pokémon on the target and beating their friends.
Who It’s For
The Pop 'n Battle Launcher is for ages 4 and up. This is definitely for the younger Pokémon fan, but they'll be intrigued by the action and all the play possibilities.
What to Be Aware of
There's a bit of a learning curve involved. Kids aren't going to land their Pokémon on the target every time, but acquiring the skill is an important part of the play.
