The Pokémon Company is bringing the franchise to Facebook with two new games: Pokémon Tower Battle and Pokémon Medallion Battle, both of which are available now (depending on where you live).
Pokémon Tower Battle, developed by Bombay Play, is available to play now worldwide. Described as a “unique take on the Pokémon franchise,” the game tasks players with stacking Pokémon against other Pokémon to create the tallest tower.
“As players discover, catch and level-up rare Pokémon, they can compete in real-time against friends or across a global leaderboard,” Facebook said in a press release. “It might seem like a simple physics-based puzzler at first, but the strategic choices in where and how players stack Pokémon will determine the true Tower Battle masters.”
Pokémon Medallion Battle, a “digital card battle strategy game” developed by GCTurbo, is now available in the Asia-Pacific region. “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,” Facebook said. “Players can also discover new Pokémon —introduced every month — to create even better decks.”
Both games are available through the Facebook Gaming portal as part of the company’s Instant Games platform.
