(Japanese: ポケモンつなひき大会 メダルぜったいゲットだぜ！ Pokémon Tug of War Tournament: Absolutely Get Medal!) is a Japanese arcade medal game based on Pokémon the Series: Black & White of the Pokémon anime and the ancient sport tug of war. Players use medals to bring forth and control various Pokémon in order to gain an edge over the opposing side.
At least one medal must be inserted to start a game. The player starts with Ash's Pikachu, and has the potential to gain Iris's Axew, Cilan's Pansage, Ash's Tepig, Ash's Snivy, and Ash's Oshawott. The Pokémon then play tug-of-war. The other team can have much bigger and stronger Pokémon on its side, so there's power in numbers. An enemy Pokémon's strength is shown as a number floating above them. Ash, Iris, and Cilan will occasionally appear in the corner to cheer their Pokémon on. As the game goes on, the Pokémon's strength depletes. When at least one of the Pokémon on the enemy side's number reaches zero, they fall to the ground and the player wins the round. The player is then awarded with medals equal to the number of points of the Pokémon that fell.
There is also a bonus round that is unlocked after four wins, in which the player picks one out of three cards. The card chosen gives the player medals equal to the number of points on the card. This bonus round can be repeated every four wins.
