'Pokémon Duel': iOS and Android app officially released

Pokémon

Some Pokémon releases see fans waiting impatiently for their arrival, while others come out of nowhere. Pokémon Duel  — formerly known as Pokémon Co-master — was revealed for iOS and Android on Tuesday without much fanfare. But any new Pokémon game is still reason for celebration, right?

Here's everything we know about Pokémon Duel so far.

Pokémon Duel: How does it work?

The app isn't quite a main-series game like you'd find in Pokémon Sun and Moon. It's an app, but it's not that similar to Pokémon Go, either. The game plays more like a board game, with Pokémon pieces you can move around a virtual playing field. Upon reaching another Pokémon, the two will engage in battle. The strategy game lets you play single-player against the computer or compete with other players online.
