Players can befriend and collect Pokémon from other players via StreetPass, and then use herds of them in stampede battles against a band of thieves to recover stolen secret treasures. However, a player will lose a battle without enough Pokémon. The thieves are Marilyn and Riot from the first Pokémon XY film, Pokémon the Movie: Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction.
The game will be free to download from June 5 to September 30 in Japan. In addition, the video teases that something will happen if player bring the game to Japanese theaters showing Pokémon the Movie: Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction this summer.
