There are two fighting phases in the game. A 3D phase (field phase) where you focus on your position and shooting projectile attacks from afar while dodging enemy attacks trying to get up close dealing massive damage and a 2D phase (duel phase) where you go through your traditional fighting game troupe of grabs, attacks (low , mid, high), blocks and parries. Each phase has different attacks variants so it switch up strategy a lot.
The field phase has you locked onto your opponent at all times so you don't have to worry about any camera issues. Once you get in close or do certain attacks you will switch to a duel phase. Duel phase can switch back to field phase once a lot of damage is dealt. Switching shift can be advantagous also as you switching from one from the other can recover all your chip damage or remove all opponents chip damage depending on who initiates it, making the game more frantic, keeping battles more intense as you're on your feet the entire time
There are 16 pokemon to choose from each varying in special moves and stats (speed, defense, attack, etc) and no one pokemon is a clone of another. Button executions are similar so you don't have to learn new moves for each character rather know how each character initiate the moves provided to them. There are also support pokemon which you can call in during battle to do stat boosts, de-buff enemy or attack the enemy. Thoughout battle to fill up a bar, when filled you can activate a pokemon's mega evolution (or a power-up state if the pokemon does not have one) where you get power up stats and access to a finishing move.
There's training mode which gives a very good tutorial of the game. I recommend going through this mode first as it will give you tips you otherwise don't know if you were just to jump right in and try to learn it yourself. I may be slow at first, but it's worth it go through in my opinion.
Verus mode or I would like to call couch gameplay have you and a friend battle each other; one using the game pad while the other a pro controller. This may cause problems if one prefers a controller over the other. You cannot both play on the TV screen as the field phase mode required a fixed camera angle on your character as mentioned before. There is a LAN link option if you are serious into the game.
There's avatar customization also which is a nice touch. You have to gain in-game money to purchase new accessories for that character which can be earned by continuous play of the game.
Ferrum battle leauge is the game's story mode where you battle varies pokemon trainer tournament style like how a pokemon league works in the anime. As you try to work your way up the tournament ladder trying to be the best there ever was; there's also a side plot about Shadow Mewtwo to switch things up a bit.
Online modes include Ranked and friendly (casual mode). Ranked keeps record of your win/lose ratio and friendly mode is your typical jump in and play against anyone or a friend if you have a code. Ranked battles aside from keeping track of your win/loss ratio you always rank up and will battle players of your own rank which is a nice challenge, but if you stop playing after a while and get rusty or if someone else plays your account your win to lose ratio may falter. Online battle is pretty smooth, there are some stutters here and there at times, but most of the time it's stable. If you are not able to connect to another player online within 10secs or so, the game let's you play against a CPU until a player is found which is a nice as you don't have to constantly wait at the search screen.
This game is the closest you'll get to a real pokemon battle you see in the anime, and is easily accessible to everyone as you focus on more on timing and twitch gameplay rather than complex executions.
If you own a Wii U this is a must have for your library, and if you're a big fighting game fan like myself I recommend picking up a Wii U for this one.
Extremely repetitive single player, good mechanics, hilariously awesome real pokemon moves, but stale gameplay overall.
If you are a fan of tekken this is a must play fighter, if you are a fan of Pokemon this is a must play, if you haven't played either... Get ready for a wild ride.
The game uses a rock-paper-scissors style that is fun and easy to understand but hard to master the timing of. Essentially counter attacks beat regular attacks, regular attacks beat grabs, and grab attacks beat counter attacks. Then there is the 2 modes in each battle the "field mode" which is like other 3D fighting games but after certain attacks or enough damage is done to a player the mode will change to "duel mode" which is a more traditional 2d fighter oh and each mode has a different move list and combos.. So lots of depth despite only having 16 playable characters on launch. Great game I highly recommend it.
