Pikachu no Naminori Daibouken[edit]

Pikachu no Naminori Daibouken (Japanese: ピカチュウのなみのり大冒険 translation: Pikachu's Great Surfing Adventure) is a 2000 Japanese prize-redemption driving arcade game featuring Pikachu and Surfing on water with Lapras. It was developed by Sammy Corporation and published by Banpresto. The machine requires 100 yen to operate, and involves the player steering Lapras to reach a goal within a 90 second (but not visible) time limit while avoiding obstacles, with better prizes being rewarded based on how many Poké Balls were collected along the way.

Pokémon: Battle Nine[edit]

Pokémon: Battle Nine (Japanese: ポケットモンスター バトルナイン) is a Japanese 2014 released Bandai Namco Games medal arcade game. The game is based on the Pokémon XY series of the Pokémon anime, and the concept is that medals are used to battle with Pokémon to clear a game board of nine Pokémon, similar to bingo.

Pokémon Catch[edit]

Pokémon Catch is an arcade coin-op redepmption machine, in which the player must catch balls for Pikachu by steering a wheel shaped like a Poké Ball. Copyright: 2000 American Sammpy Corporation.

Pokémon Card Game Gacha[edit]

Pokémon Card Game Gacha (Japanese: ポケモンカードゲームガチャ) was an arcade game by Takara Tomy released in 2014. The idea was that the player inserts money to play minigames on the machine to win regular official Pokémon Trading Cards. Minigames included Poké Crane (a claw machine game), Poké Slot (a slot machine game) and Poké Fishing (a fishing game).

Pokémon: Crayon Kids[edit]

Pokémon: Crayon Kids (Japanese: ポケットモンスターくれよんキッズ) is a Banpresto/Sega arcade Pokémon art game. Themed around the second generation and Episode Gold & Silver from the original anime series. Released in July 2001. Players can select one of three courses, the easy (Pichu), normal (Pikachu) or expert (Raichu) course, with harder options restricting guidance for the player.

Pokémon: Wobbuffet Ga Koron Da![edit]

Pokémon: Wobbuffet Ga Koron Da! (Japanese:ソーナンスがころんだ! translation: Pokémon: Wobbuffet Fell Down! or Pokémon: Sonans Fell Down!) was released in 2006 by Banpresto. It is a Japanese arcade medal game featuring Wobbuffet, possibly based on the Battle Frontier arc of the Pokémon Advanced Generation anime. The game involves moving Pokémon forward towards a goal, while avoiding Meowth. If all Pokémon are caught or 30 seconds have elapsed, the game is over. Reaching the goal causes Wobbuffet to appear, which will drop a Poké Ball; the type of which depends on how many times the goal has been reached before, with Master Ball being the best (for three wins). The player can start a Bonus Game if the Master Ball appears.

Pokémon KuruKuru Get[edit]

Pokémon KuruKuru Get (Japanese: ポケモンくるくるゲット translation: Pokémon Round and Round Get) is a medal game that was released in 2010 by Namco Bandai Games in Japan for arcades, in which the player inserts medals and receives prizes based on where they land on a prize area. There are four different machines, and certain ones are considered easier to win at depending on which one was used (e.g. the yellow machine featuring generally unevolved Pokémon as opposed to the blue machine featuring fully evolved ones and legendary Pokémon) but the payouts are generally higher for the harder machines.

Pokémon Medal World[edit]

Pokémon Medal World (Japanese: ポケモンメダルワールド) is a Bandai Namco arcade medal game, based on the Best Wishes series of the Pokémon anime to be played with 1-24 players (up to 4 between 6 stations each). It was released on January 17 2012, but also appeared at the September 15, 2011 49th Amusement Machine Show. It is a medal redemption machine game. It appears that a medal is inserted and may emerge from a prize area, with higher numbers (like 300) possibly rewarding more medals.

Pokémon Tsunahiki Taikai Medal Zettai Get Da Ze![edit]

Pokémon Tsunahiki Taikai Medal Zettai Get Da Ze! (Japanese: ポケモンつなひき大会 メダルぜったいゲットだぜ! translation: Pokémon Tug of War Tournament Absolutely Get Medal) is a medal game that was released in 2010 by Banpresto. It is based on the traditional tug-of-war game with Pokémon characters, as well as the Best Wishes series of the Pokémon anime. A medal is needed to play the game, and depending on the player's performance in the game, they can win more medals.

Pokémon Battrio is an arcade game in the Pokémon series, released only in Japan in 2007. It was first announced on April 11, 2007 as a joint venture between Takara Tomy and AQ Interactive, and it was scheduled to be released sometime in July 2007. It was succeeded by Pokémon Tretta.



The gameplay is battle focused and is similar to Pokémon Battle Revolution and the Pokémon Stadium sub-series, however it features significantly altered game mechanics and has support for special collectable pucks which become Pokémon species when read by the machine. For this reason, other puck supported Pokémon machines may be considered as part of the same sub-series.
