Pokémon Rumble Rush Service Ends
The Pokémon Company have ended the service for the Pokémon Rumble Rush (known as “Pokémon Scramble SP” in Japan) smartphone game…
Pokémon Rumble Rush is a free-to-play mobile game developed by Ambrella, that originally launched worldwide on Android devices on May 22, 2019 (and a week earlier in Australasia) and then on iOS devices on July 23, 2019. It was initially revealed back in 2017 under the name of Pokéland and is the first Pokémon mobile title to allow players to connect to their Nintendo Account and even offers My Nintendo rewards. The game is no longer able to be installed, updated, or accessed. Refund applications for the “Poké Diamond” in-game currency are open from July 22 to October 22 in Japan (check your region for applicable refund policy).
Other games in the series include the first title on Wii, simply titled Pokémon Rumble (Ransen！Pokémon Scramble), which released back in 2009 as a digital only release. A Nintendo 3DS sequel two years later Pokémon Rumble Blast (Super Pokémon Rumble) even saw a packaged version. The Wii U entry Pokémon Rumble U (Pokémon Scramble U) in 2013 even saw a NFC toy range of Pokémon that were compatible with the game, with 18 standard figures released. The most recent console entry, the pictured Pokémon Rumble World (Minna no Pokémon Scramble) released on 3DS in 2015, and was the second series entry to see a packaged version available.
