The Pokémon Company released the Pokémon Rumble Rush (Pokémon Scramble SP) game worldwide for iOS devices on Tuesday. The Pokémon Company also began streaming a trailer for the game.

The game launched for Android on May 22.

Ambrella returned from the previous Pokémon Rumble (Pokémon Scramble) games to develop the "exhilarating strike action game." The smartphone game is a new launch of the Pokéland smartphone game that launched an open alpha test in 2017.

In the game, players travel through uncharted islands with a variety of Pokémon. Gameplay only requires one hand, and players tap the screen to attack. The islands and seas in the game change every two weeks. Refining ore to get power gears and summon gears lets players upgrade their Pokémon and use different moves. in the Super Boss Rush, players defeat Super Bosses to earn rewards.

Nintendo released the Pokémon Rumble game for WiiWare in 2009. The company then released Pokémon Rumble Blast for the Nintendo 3DS in 2011, Pokémon Rumble U for the Wii U in 2013, and Pokémon Rumble World for the Nintendo 3DS in 2015.

Game company DeNA announced earlier this month that it plans to launch a new smartphone game in the new fiscal year based on the Pokémon franchise. DeNA is partnering with The Pokemon Company on the game.
