    Get ready for a new kind of Pokémon battle where the power and speed of your brain are just as important as the strength of your Pokémon! Join Ash, Brock, Misty and many more characters from the Pokémon animated series as they gather in Puzzle Village to compete for the title of Pokémon Puzzle Master. Just match three or more blocks of the same color in any direction. Sounds simple, right? But the actual game-play is surprizingly deep (chains and combos anyone?) and addictive, especially when you’re facing off against a human opponent. Choose from six different modes offering a wide range of action, from a story mode or solving preset puzzles to continuous play or timed play. If that’s not enough, take on the challenge in 3D and get ready for more blocks than ever before. Featuring animated cut scenes combined with bright, fun graphics, there’s enough to satisfy anyone who is a fan of Pokémon or puzzle games!

    Pokémon fans can experience the fast-paced fun of Pokémon Puzzle League all over again on the Wii console via the Virtual Console service. The puzzle game was made available in May 2008.

    Looking for a change of pace from regular Pokémon games? Pokémon Puzzle League is the biggest departure for Pokémon yet. Pokémon Puzzle League is a block game where your goal is to flip colored squares to create rows of three or more. Pokémon Puzzle League is easy to pick up and play right away-as you get better, you'll discover many winning concepts. While there are plenty of strategies to learn, you'll still need lightning-fast fingers and a keen eye to succeed. If you're wondering how to improve your game, check out the in-game Pokémon Puzzle University to get helpful hints.

    Play as one of a number of characters from the Pokémon games (including Ash, Professor Oak, or a member of Team Rocket) and then pick three Pokémon that will shout their names in encouragement during your game. Pokémon Puzzle League lets you go head to head against an opponent, too.

    For a real challenge, try 3-D Mode, where the blocks fall along a cylindrical shape. You can see only the front side of the cylinder, so while you're knocking out blocks in front of you, the back of the board might be filling up!

    Do you have what it takes to prove yourself in Pokémon Puzzle League battle? It's easy to learn, tough to master, and impossible to put down!



    Welcome to Pokémon Puzzle League! Being selected to participate in the Official Puzzle League Tournament is one of the greatest honors a Pokémon Trainer can earn. In this brand new type of Pokémon battle, you'll have to use your strongest Pokémon to compete against the very best Trainers in Puzzle League Village.

    To succeed in Pokémon Puzzle League, your fingers have to be fast and your brain has to work even faster. True Pokémon Puzzle Masters will discover many ways to play the game, but the basic idea is to destroy puzzle pieces by matching up three or more blocks of the same color.

    The more puzzle pieces you eliminate at the same time, the more points you'll score. If you're battling another Trainer, you can send powerful attacks to their puzzle board by completing big Combos and Skill Chains. If you can't clear your stack of puzzle pieces before they reach the top of the screen, you're doomed.

    You'll discover many challenges as you travel through Puzzle League Village, from the exciting 3D Puzzle Mode to the brain-bruising exercises at Pokémon Puzzle University. The best way to experience Pokémon Puzzle League is to bring a friend along on your adventure. Heated two-player Pokémon battles are so intense and action-packed that you just might forget to breathe!

    Are you ready for this new type of Pokémon Battle?
