Reason: Any Rumble U differences.
Toy Pokémon (Japanese: グッズ ポケモン Pokémon toy) are miniature wind-up toys that resemble Pokémon, and are the only type of Pokémon that appear in the Pokémon Rumble series. There are currently 719 different species of Toy Pokémon (not counting alternate forms).
Toy Pokémon behave much like normal Pokémon do. They are generally friendly, and all share a common love for battling and teamwork. In order to operate, a Toy Pokémon must have a working Wonder Key which provides them with life. Otherwise, they are lifeless toys. Over time, a Toy Pokémon may become Rusty, or they may become Rusty after coming in contact with Dark Rust. A Rusty Toy Pokémon will only be able to perform the move Struggle, or otherwise be controlled by Dark Rust if they are completely consumed by rust. In order to be restored to normal, Rusty Toy Pokémon will need to be cleansed either with Glowdrops (in Pokémon Rumble Blast) or at the Rust Removal Spot (in Pokémon Rumble World).
Differences between Toy Pokémon and normal Pokémon
Toy Pokémon can only know two moves at a time as opposed to the usual four. Also, instead of having Abilities, Toy Pokémon may have Special Traits. Toy Pokémon cannot grow or evolve like regular Pokémon, and most retain their Power level and stats their entire lives. In order to gain an evolution, the player must release a number of the same species to be given a Special Ticket for the next stage of evolution (Pokémon Rumble), or simply be given the evolution in exchange for the previous stage (Pokémon Rumble Blast). No evolution equivalent exists in Pokémon Rumble World.
A Toy Pokémon has five set statistics as opposed to the usual six: HP, Power, Attack, Defense, and Speed. Each species of Toy Pokémon has a set base Attack, Defense, and Speed, and each individual Toy Pokémon has a Power level that modulates the other four stats. Toy Pokémon with higher Power levels can be found later in the game, or as the player's Rank increases in various games in the series.
Shiny Toy Pokémon
In Pokémon Rumble only, a player has a very slim chance of finding a Shiny Toy Pokémon, similar to the core series games. However, when playing with multiple players, the odds of finding a Shiny Toy Pokémon greatly increase to the point that it would be unlikely not to find one or two while playing.
