Hands-on With the Latest Pokémon Rhythm Game

And calling it a game might be a bit of a stretch. With much sorrow in my heart, I have to inform readers that this Japan-exclusive title is more of an ad for the upcoming movie Pokémon the Movie: Hoopa and the Clash of Ages than anything else.


As the trailer suggests, this game is slow. Sloooooooow. Sadly it’s made very clear that only small children will be engaged with its geriatric pacing. You also have to repeat the same slow stages in order to earn berries which can unlock new characters and, I guess, new songs. Unfortunately, I had to tap out. Even if this does hit Western app stores (iOS/Android), it won’t be worth the space on your phone. The screenshots below were taken while I played.
