A Wii U first! Place your Pokémon Rumble U NFC Figures on your Wii U GamePad to link up with the game world!
If you place a Pokémon Rumble U NFC Figure on your Wii U GamePad, the same Pokémon will appear in the game world of Pokémon Rumble U! This is the first time that Near-Field Communication (NFC) technology will be used in the Wii U!
That’s right! Pokémon Rumble U NFC Figures are not just for enjoying in the real world—they can also be used in the game world!
※ Pokémon Rumble U can be played with or without NFC figures.
Pokémon Rumble U NFC Figures can level up! Build up a partner you can count on!
Unlike other Pokémon in the game, the Pokémon that appear in the game by using a Pokémon Rumble U NFC Figure can grow stronger with coins that you receive in the game.
Get a Pokémon Rumble U NFC Figure for one of your favorite Pokémon, and raise it to be one of your most dependable allies in the game!
Coins can be collected by defeating enemies.
Use coins to have your Pokémon learn new moves or raise their stats. The moves that can be learned are set for each Pokémon!
You can also give these Pokémon Special Traits, unlike normal Toy Pokémon. Pokémon with Special Traits will gain greater abilities than normal Pokémon!
There are all kinds of Special Traits and each has a different effect! For example, a Pokémon with the Special Trait Speedy will become able to move quickly.
The growth of your Pokémon in the game is recorded in the Pokémon Rumble U NFC Figure! Bring your favorite figures and come to play!
The in-game data for these special Pokémon that you raise in Pokémon Rumble U can be recorded to their Pokémon Rumble U NFC Figures. If you place a figure that you've raised on the Wii U GamePad at a friend's house, you'll be able to play with your own Pokémon in their copy of Pokémon Rumble U!
By recording the results of your efforts in Pokémon Rumble U, your Pokémon Rumble U NFC Figure will become unique and the only one of its kind in the world!
Use Smart Cards to Call Helper Pokémon!
It’s not just the Pokémon Rumble U NFC Figures that can make Toy Pokémon appear in your game. Tap the Wii U GamePad with a smart card and you can call a Toy Pokémon to enter your game. (Noncontact smart cards, such as transit passes, IDs, and bank cards, may be compatible with this software.)
The Toy Pokémon that will appear in your game as a result of tapping a smart card is called a Helper Pokémon. Helper Pokémon disappear after helping out for a certain amount of time and they can’t be raised to become stronger, but they can be useful partners in a pinch!
The Helper Pokémon that will appear differs depending on the smart card you are using. If you have any smart cards lying around, tap them on the Wii U GamePad and see what kind of Helper Pokémon will appear!
NOTE: The information stored on your smart card will not be changed as a result of being read by the Wii U Game Pad.
