Pokémon Duel (Japanese: ポケモンコマスター Pokémon Comaster) is a spin-off Pokémon board game for iOS and Android. It was released in Japan for Android devices on April 12, 2016 and for iOS on April 19, 2016, and was later released in English in North America, Europe, and Australia on January 24, 2017. The game is free-to-start. 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.

Pokémon Duel is a single-player game that features online battles.


Pokémon Duel is a strategy board game that uses Pokémon figures. Build a deck with your favorite figures and then leap into a League Match! Compete with players from around the world for a chance to enter the top League rankings in League Matches. You'll fight your rivals in real time! Win duels, get all kinds of cool figures and items, and make your deck stronger!

The rules are simple! The object is to be the first player to get one of your figures to your opponent's goal. How will you get to the goal? You'll need to carefully choose your route! In duels, you and your opponent take turns moving your figures. Set up a strategic formation and attack your opponent, or simply block their path—it's all about tactics! Plan your strategy and defeat your opponents in this game of cat and mouse!

In duels, your deck is composed of 6 Pokémon figures. There are all kinds of figures, each with different moves and abilities. Keep this in mind as you build your own custom deck!

Make use of your custom deck and the AI! The AI is a reliable ally who will determine good moves and take your turn for you. Make full use of the AI and crush your opponents!


Pokémon Duel is a strategy board game based on the Pokémon Trading Figure Game. Players collect and build their own deck from a large range of figures with different characteristics. For the basic rules of the game, see Pokémon Trading Figure Game→Mechanics.

Players may transfer their game data to another device. Within the Options menu, setting a transfer password will generate a transfer ID; when the password and ID are entered into the Game Data Transfer option of another device, the player's save data and Gems will be moved to the new device. After data is transferred from a device, a new save file under a new account must be made. If data is transferred from iOS to Android or vice versa, Gems will not be transferred.

Changes from the Trading Figure Game

  • Trainer cards are replaced by Plates, which have no chance of failing; Trainer figures are removed because of this.
  • Figures of evolved Pokémon may be evolved, increasing the damage of the evolved Pokemon's moves.
  • Figures use the Pokémon's types from the Pokémon games rather than the types from the Pokémon Trading Card Game.
  • Pokémon Powers have been renamed Abilities.
  • A figure's action wheel can be altered by leveling up the figure. The size of actions can be increased, thus decreasing the size of the Miss section of that figure.


A shop run by Luca's sister Tia sells Boosters, Plates, and figures. The Boosters and Plates are bought with Gems and figures are bought with Materials. Figures can also be sold to the shop for Coins.


There are three types of Metals: Rare Metals (blue), Cubes (green), and Ingots (gold).

  • Rare Metals are used to grant large sums of experience points to your Figures via Fusion in order to level them up. The higher the rarity of the Rare Metal, the more experience points they will grant.
    • Rare Rare Metals give 4500 XP.
  • Cubes are used to increase the power of an attack of your choice. Cubes can only be used on figures with the same rarity (for example, EX-rare figures need EX-rare Cubes to power up their attacks. The limit of power which you can add is 10 points divided as you wish among the moves. These cannot be used on Purple, Blue, or Red sections. They also cannot be used on moves with attack strength of 0.
  • Ingots can be sold directly for money via the Exchange Coins section of the shop. The higher the rarity of the Ingot, the higher value for which it can be sold.
    • EX-rare Ingots have a value of 35,000 coins.
    • Uncommon Ingots have a value of 3,500 coins.
    • Common Ingots have a value of 1,800 coins.


Gems can be purchased with real money from the Gem Counter run by Marabelle. Each pack of Gems has a point value that is deducted from a 50000 point pool. Gems cannot be purchased if the player does not have enough points and the pool is reset at the beginning of every month.

Aiming to become the Hotel King, the player arrives in Carmonte Island, an artificial island housing a city of resorts. The island hosts the Pokémon Figure Games (PFG) World Tournament, where its top prize is the symbol of Carmonte Island, Jewel Tower. The tournament is hosted by the tower's current owner, Master Rosé.

Along their way to the island, the player encounters and befriends Luca, the scion of a prestigious family. During the tournament, the player collects figures and plates, partners with an AI named Carlo, and challenges various NPCs to a duel in order to reach the boss in the highest level. In the defeat of each boss, the player will receive an emblem as a testimony to their victory.

After befriending a popular idol named Sharon, the player is stalked by members of the Roger family, an influential organization in Carmonte Island.
