Pokemon XD Mini Games

Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness features two interesting mini games. Below, you will find exclusive information and screenshots (provided by Nintendo) of these mini games.

Battle Sim System

The Battle Sim System is a virtual Pokemon battling system that lets you battle in various situations. Using the Battle CDs you obtain in your adventure, you can engage in different virtual battles depending on the disc you have. You won't be using your own Pokemon in the Battle Sim -- instead, the Pokemon will be provided. Battles are cleared by meeting certain criteria (i.e. "Defeat the opponent within two turns!"). If you win, you get a prize. Even if you lose, you'll get some advice on battling so that you'll do better next time. The Battle Sim System is a mini game that helps improve battling techniques and is a great way for personal skill evaluation.

Battle Bingo

The Battle Bingo is a game of bingo involving Pokemon through the use of bingo cards. The object of Battle Bingo is to flip four panels in a row over, either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. You achieve this by using a Pokemon (provided for each card) to battle for the panels. A Pokemon is revealed after a panel is flipped, which initiates a battle. You'll then decide to either "Battle" or "Catch" that Pokemon. The panel will then be flipped over if you either defeat or catch it. Additionally, catching the Pokemon will allow you to use that Pokemon for the rest of the bingo card. This is a mini game that tests your training skills as well as Bingo tactics.
