The Pokémon Company has released two new games on.. wait for it… Facebook of all places. Introducing Pokémon Tower Battle and Pokémon Medallion Battle, two Facebook exclusive games.
Pokémon Tower Battle, which is developed by Bombay Play, is centered around stacking Pokémon up into a tower. The game uses the classic artwork for the Pokémon, which tumble and stack depending on their shape.
Pokémon Medallion Battle, on the other hand, is a collectible battle game by GCTurbo. Similar to the trading card game, players collect Pokémon as medallions and battle against trainers, gyms, and so on. This particular game is available in the Asia Pacific region.
Both games are available now via Facebook’s gaming platform.
These are by no means major inclusions into the Pokémon franchise. It’s interesting to see approval for these games, all the same. It reminds me of when companies would have official web browser flash games on their websites.
