Over the years, there have been many offshoots of Nintendo and Game Freak’s popular Pokémon series. Some have claimed their own place of honor among video game greats, such as Pokémon Stadium. Others have enjoyed a smaller, but dedicated following, like Pokémon Snap. Several of these have strayed quite a bit from the traditional Pokémon path. But even with the series’s history of branching out and exploring other genres and fresh ideas, I never thought I would be writing a review of a Pokémon-centered turn-based strategy game. Based off of feudal Japan, no less.
