Super Pokémon Scramble Japanese boxart
Pokémon Rumble Blast (Japanese: スーパーポケモンスクランブル Super Pokémon Scramble), known as Super Pokémon Rumble in Europe, is a sequel to the WiiWare game Pokémon Rumble. It is a Nintendo 3DS game that was released in Japan on August 11, 2011 (previously July 28, 2011) and in North America on October 24, 2011. Unlike its predecessor, which only featured Pokémon from Generation I and Generation IV, Pokémon Rumble Blast features all five generations of Pokémon.
The game starts with a showdown between Reshiram and Zekrom on the Battle Royale stage, manifesting as a spirit behind their toy form. The player starts from Toy Town, where the player's Mii enters to set a Pikachu into motion. On the first stage, called the Beginner's Park, the player fights the Unova starter Pokémon and the elemental monkeys. The game ensures that the player recruits Oshawott, Tepig and Snivy. Victini is also available here. The first boss is Zekrom, which is an unwinnable battle. The stage collapses, and the player's toy Pokémon fall into another location.
A cut scene will then play showing a Cobalion speaking to a crowd. He then says the Glowdrops have the power to remove Rust from materials and shows it by pouring some glowdrops on a rusty object and the Rust disappears. He then tells the pokemon to gather as many glowdrops as possible. The toys then march off and the cut scene ends.
The player's toy Pokemon will land in Toy Town and meet with Lillipup who will explain several things about the town, and will tell you to go to the meadow. Upon returning, the town discovers that the Glowdrops in the town have been stolen, and they blame Pawniard for stealing them. Upon reaching him he states that you'll never pass the coming Battle Royale and heads off. Upon getting to 1-4, Challenger's Ground, the player's toy Pokemon must battle him in the semifinals and win the final round. He the admits that he did not steal the glowdrops and tells the player's toy Pokemon that it was another group of Pokemon lead by a Krookodile that is headed towards Easterly Town. The citizens of Toy Town then guide the player's toy Pokemon to Eastern Town.
Upon reaching Easterly town, the player's toy Pokemon will encounter Krookodile taking Eastern Town's glowdrops and leaving. The player the gives chase through several forts. The player meets a Gurdurr along the way and states that the great glowdrop fountain has enough glowdrops to restore the towns' glowdrops to normal. Upon reaching the area, the player encounters Cobalion who has come for the glowdrops. He then challenges you to a 3 on 1, and you cannot win this fight. All your Pokemon will faint in 2 hits. Cobalion then takes the glowdrops while the player is unconscious.
The player continues on to Westerly Town and encounters a Zorua who tells the player that Cobalion is on Firebreathing Mountain and the player proceeds to head there. Along the way, Rusty Pokemon attack some of Cobalion's minions and the player defeats them and continues on. At the last fort on the mountain, Zorua then tells the player that he is on Cobalion's side and proceeds to battle you with a Zoroark. Upon defeating them, the player reaches Cobalion who then bends your wonder key and knocks you unconscious and heads north. The player will be in bad shape, but will make it to Northerly Town.
