Welcome to the walkthrough for Pokémon Pinball. This walkthrough will help you get to know the stages and mechanics of the game.
This mode begins with a shadowed image which is uncovered by hitting the Pokémon bumpers of the stage six times. The Pokémon will then appear and must be hit four times to be caught. This mode lasts for two minutes. Various Pokémon can be caught depending on the field, area, and whether you have two or three Catch arrows lit. Catching the Pokémon will add one Poké Ball to the Catch Gauge.
Launching your ball up the left-most lane three times will unlock Evolution Mode. Hit your ball to Staryu (red) or into Slowpoke's mouth (blue) and choose a Pokémon to evolve. Once the Pokémon to evolve has been selected, three items must be collected in turn and the ball must then enter the Center Hole within two minutes. These items represent how the Pokémon evolves in the games. Catching the Pokémon will add two Poké Ball to the Catch Gauge.
