The Metabee version of Metabots is one of the best games I have played, even when compared to Pokemon Sapphire and Golden Sun.
You play a boy named Ikki Tenryo who lives in the 22nd Century, the year 2122 to be exact. While shopping for his mother, Ikki purchases a Medabot by mistake, and he has no choice but to take it. However, Ikki is now ready to fight Medafighters from the anime like Erika, Samantha and Koji. Not only will he want to become the world’s greatest Medafighter but he will also have to contend with the notorious Rubberobo Gang, who plan to steal all the rare medals in the world.
Up to three Medabots can fight together against three other Medabots at once. When you win a battle, you get a Medapart for your Medabot. You also receive some money if you fight other Medafighters. Medabots appear in the wild as well. Defeat them and you will also get a Medapart but you won’t get any money.
To assemble a Medabot, you need a Tinpet. A Timpet is the framework or skeleton for a Medabot. You are required to collect multiple Timpets in order to create a Medabot team. There are four types of Medaparts: Legs, left arms, right arms and heads. You can buy Medaparts, but if you want the best or rarest ones, you’ll need to win them in Robattles or trade for them.
In order to defeat a Medabot, you must destroy its legs, left arm, right arm and head. Alternatively, if you KO a Medabot’s head you will automatically destroy it. The Medals can level up and change shape depending on how many times you use them on your Medabot. Medabots also have a special attack called the Medaforce. By using the Medaforce, you can turn the tables on your opponent if he/she isn’t expecting it.
