Pokemon Rumble is both the first full fledged Pokemon game for WiiWare and the first straight Pokemon Beat 'Em Up and it doesn't disappoint. Although the audio and visual aspects of the game won't be to everyone's liking, the gameplay and controls are extremely intuitive and the game manages to be a lot of fun, even if you're new to Pokemon or don't even like the franchise that much. The game probably shines bright in multiplayer mode where you and up to three of your friends can take on all comers in a battle royal, but single player is the true heart of the game where you'll be "catching 'em all" and finding yourself pouring over each new Pokemon to see who is a worthy addition to your main team and who is trade bait. Fifteen dollars may be a lot for a WiiWare title, but Pokemon Rumble is worth every penny. Best of all, you can store your team on your Wiimote and then bring them over to a friend's house to do battle. The only thing that is missing from this game that would have made it amazing is online multiplayer. Alas, maybe in the sequel if there is one.
