Combining the sublimely geeky coupling of strategy gaming and figure collecting, the latest plan from The Pokémon Company for the franchise’s 20th anniversary is a new smartphone game title coming to iOS and Android in Japan this spring. Pokémon Co-master, developed by the pro-shōgi-player crushing AI creators HEROZ, sticks with their strengths as a free-to-play “strategy battle board game”, where players create a “deck” of figurines (shown below) and use different combinations to battle their opponents.


The Pokémon battle and chess crossover is given a quick demonstration and fanfare in its first promo video, which you can watch below.
