Many interesting challenges
The puzzle challenges of the Pokémon Puzzle League are quite varied. All of them follow the rules of a 3-match game. The player’s task in every match is to destroy all the squares on the board to win. Of course, you need to do it earlier than your competition. You play on a square board with many random and continuous blocks. Your job is to arrange the blocks of the same color and shape to destroy them. The arrangement can be horizontal or vertical with numbers of 3 or more to destroy them. Especially, when you destroy square blocks with numbers of 4 or more (chain or combo), it causes the opponent’s playground to receive more square blocks.
In addition to the classic 2D board with a horizontal area of 6 squares, the game brings a new 3D playground. It has up to 18 squares for players to enjoy. In multiplayer mode, you are allowed to choose which trainers and Pokémon to use. However, these options are for entertainment purposes only. It provides visuals for the player to see without the use of special skills.
