quoteSourcePokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition is an upcoming Nintendo DS game which is a crossover between the Pokémon franchise and the Nobunaga's Ambition series of games. These games are due for release in 2012
Not much is currently known about the game, but based on the previous series, this game features you controlling various Pokémon to take over parts of the region of Ranse. In the region, there are 17 castles each with military commanders all of whom are paired with specific Pokémon.
The gameplay has you control various Pokémon in a combat scenario, having to use them to attack the enemies and fulfill missions. This is done via an isometric view and is turn-based, requiring you to think about the placement of your Pokémon as you traverse the various areas. In each region, there are are a variety of areas to explore in which you can find new Pokémon and trainers to join your army in order to take the other nations.
This game takes approximately 20 hours to complete the main narrative, but has a "Final Scenario" mode which adds many new missions to the game which can increase the time spent tenfold.
quoteSourceChoosing a Pokemon
Throughout the game, you will conquer various lands and befriend numerous different Pokémon warriors. From this, each warrior can only use one Pokémon each, but you can use six warriors in combat. You will need to decide the best six characters to join in this combat. Type advantage, movement abilities and support all need to be considered when choosing.
In each turn, you have the ability to move your Pokémon. The distance the Pokémon can travel depends solely upon the Pokémon itself and cannot bypass obstacles. However, if it is a Flying-type Pokémon, it has the ability to jump over certain gaps and over certain obstacles. To move the Pokémon, you just select the Pokémon you wish to move and then select the area you wish to place it.
While that's simple enough, the position of the Pokémon and the enemy Pokémon need to be considered. As it's turn-based, if you move within the area they can attack, they will likely attack you before you can get a chance.
If you're within range of an enemy Pokémon, you will be able to use a move against them. Each Pokémon has different moves with which they can attack the opponents. Like the main games, you need to factor in type advantages. All the type combinations are in the game and the types are weak and strong against the same types as the main series Pokémon games.
Each attack has a different range. Some can do damage from a distance while others need the Pokémon to be right next to the opponent. A list of the moves will come at launch.
As you go through the game, you will collect a number of items, which you can give to the warriors in your command to allow them to give the Pokémon the item within the combat zone. These items vary in use and can boost stats, heal Hit Points and do much more. We'll provide a list of the items when the game is released.
Items can also be found on the ground after you have defeated an opponent Pokémon
Finally, each trainer has got their own special powers, similar to abilities in the main games, which can aid you in combat. These powers vary in use and can range from increasing movement distance or restoring a Pokémon's Hit Points. A list of powers shall come at game launch
