    Default Pokémon Rumble/Scramble U - Serebii's Discovery Thread

    The new game, Pokémon Rumble U, is out on the Wii U eShop in Japan tomorrow, and as usual we will be covering the game in full.

    This thread will have all the minor things I discover as playing through the game, which may not necessarily warrant posting directly on the site, though keep an eye there too

    Discuss what is found here: http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthr...-U-Discoveries

    The first battle has you face up against Keldeo

    At the end of each battle, you get points based on your performance, akin to Smash Brothers.

    If you complete all the Challenges in a level, you get a special capsule which contains a rare Pokémon. For example, I just got Blastoise after defeating Keldeo

    Each location is separated into two or more levels. These are essentially defeat the Pokémon, and then the boss. There are several challenges that you can complete in doing so.

    If you defeat a Pokémon for capture, you will get a capsule

    Red capsules give you standard Pokémon
    Yellow capsules give Pokémon with abilities
    Blue capsules are unknown, but I'm assuming shiny

    Seems there's a level cap on password Pokémon straight away. These are all coming at 1000

    After defeating Chandelure, Black Kyurem appears out of the shadows

    You exit the Amusement park area and go to a standard park, where Celebi dwells

    After defeating Celebi, you move onto a train station which appears to be headed up by Rayquaza

    I'll be doing location listings soon

    Defeating Rayquaza allows you to get to the next area, the forest where Meloetta appears and tells you the direction to the Pokémon shop

    There are several different kinds of levels. Standard Battle Royales, a time constrained battle and capture the flag

    One mission has me protect a Pichu

    Unfortunately it does seem like this game is nothing but Battle Royales in varying locales

    After defeating Meloetta (who changes form mid-battle), you finally get to the Pokémon Shop where Kyurem is

    The effects in this game are great. As they're based on tin toys, you can actually see the reflection of the area in them. A Gengar just came into battle and I can see the front of the toy store

    On a particularly brutal level at the moment

    Defeated Kyurem. It was a hard battle but as Volcarona it was relatively simple. Much easier than the pain that was before. Managed to get a White Kyurem and standard Keldeo out of it.

    As Black Kyurem loses, everyone happily returns to the toy shop and into their capsules, but they then escape to play


    Guess it's a bit of a short game, though that's somewhat expected. I imagine there's significant post-game content though

    Only one of the areas in the new store is open. I'm assuming more open up as I get better Pokémon

    Strangely, so far in the post-game, there's no World Rank, so early stages are still low levelled

    Actually unsure how to proceed. The post-game areas have blocked off stages to complete, but no sign on how to unlock them so I've gone back to do some Challenges, see if that does it

    Just unlocked one of the levels. It appears to be via Challenges and amount of Pokémon obtained. It's going to be a long week
