To be released spring 2016
A new free-to-start smartphone game, Pokémon Co-Master, has been announced for Japan. It will be released in spring 2016. The game will include microtransactions, although their nature has not been specified.
Pokémon Co-Master is a board game of strategy and tactics using Pokémon figures. Players collect and build their own deck from a large range of figures with different characteristics. Each player moves figures, aiming to reach their opponent's goal first. Pokémon Co-Master is a single-player game that features online battles.
In order to give the game the world's strongest AI, The Pokémon Company has partnered with HEROZ, whose app Shogi Wars is known for being able to defeat and challenge professional players.
Notably, the game seems to resemble the Pokémon Trading Figure Game. The field depicted in the trailer has the same layout as the 6-figure Pokémon Trading Figure Game field.
