Pokémon Get Round and Round (Japanese: ポケモンくるくるゲット) is a Japanese arcade medal game released by Bandai Namco Games. Players can use medals that are deposited into a funnel in attempt to land them on various areas of a rotating platform to earn more medals.


Each machine has an anticlockwise rotating circular platform with 10 prize areas of varying sizes and designs. Medals deposited by players via the slot are fed into a large funnel before being thrown out of the bottom and onto the platform. Medals with too much momentum may fall off the platform and not come into play. A scanner will detect any medals that land on a prize area as the platform rotates, with the depicted payout deposited by the machine. A catcher beyond this knocks any medals on the platform into the machine. A LED display below the medal slot shows the current jackpot and the number of medals to be deposited by the machine if a medal lands on a prize area.


First released in April 2010, Pokémon Get Round and Round has two machine varieties: yellow and blue. The yellow machine is a lower grade than blue, featuring comparably larger prize areas but smaller payouts. Other than the jackpot area, the largest payout on the yellow machine is 6 medals, whereas the largest payout on the blue machine is 10 medals. The prize area sizes directly correlate with their payout, with the jackpot area not much larger than that of a medal. The jackpot accumulates as the machines are used, with a maximum for both of 99 medals. Generally, the yellow machine also features "cute" un-evolved Pokémon, whereas the blue machine features "cool" Legendary or evolved Pokémon, reflecting the grades of the two machines.

In March 2011, another set of machines were released featuring branding from Pokémon the Series: Black & White of the anime and with new Pokémon from Generation V. Other than their design, the machines are identical to the originals, with the aqua machine fulfilling the role of the yellow, and the red machine fulfilling that of the blue.
