The latest episode of Pokémon Smash showcased PokéMania, a sort of Pokémon trivia game involving cards, and put their own little twist to make things interesting. We’ve decided to make our own little trivia quiz. Although we don’t have any crazy Japanese game show-twists like Smash did, we think it’ll pass some time.
Questions will be based on the battling aspect of Pokémon. The answers will be in a separate spoiler box. I would love to hear your answers, opinions, or even questions/quizzes of your own 🙂
