Playing the game
Pokémon On A Roll may be played alone or against other players. Each player receives a score card featuring different combinations of the three Pokémon Chimchar, Piplup, and Turtwig. The game also comes with a dice-rolling cup and six die featuring the three above Pokémon and a Poké Ball. Each player rolls the die three times and takes out one or more die and "saves" them. A player must set aside the die strategically to complete as many different combinations of the three Pokémon as possible. Possible combinations include:
- Five each of the same Pokémon
- Three Turtwig and three Piplup
- Three Piplup and three Chimchar
- Three Chimchar and three Turtwig
- Two each of the three Pokémon
The objective of the game is to complete as many different combinations of Pokémon as possible within a set time limit.
