Dash set 2 →

The first set in the Pokémon Ga-Olé Dash series was released on July 6, 2017. It features 73 standard disks and 2 secret disks. It is the sixth set overall.


The Dash series brings with it graphical changes to the user interface on all upgraded Pokémon Ga-Olé machines, as well as to the Pokémon Ga-Olé disks themselves. The introduction of the Dash System (Japanese: ダッシュシステム) is the most significant change however, which changes how players enable their Pokémon to attack during battles. Using the Dash System, players are encouraged to alternatively press the console buttons as fast as possible to make their Pokémon icons "dash" along the Attack Gauge. This series also begins a new numbering system, with sets prefixed with a "D" and the set number starting at 1.

Among the aesthetic changes to disk illustrations from this set was the shift from portrait to landscape orientation for Grade 4 Pokémon, previously an exclusive feature of Grade 5 Pokémon. Grade 3 Pokémon also receive additional swirl graphics as per Grade 4 Pokémon.

The Legendary Rainbow Pokémon Ho-Oh was the focus of one of the launch courses, appearing as a powerful Grade 5 Pokémon. The course availability period lead up to and coincided with the release of I Choose You! in Japan on July 15, 2017, in which Ho-Oh provides a central role. The Mythical Gloomdweller Pokémon Marshadow, which also has a central role in I Choose You!, was the focus of the next standard course available to play, appearing as a Grade 5 Pokémon with access to its special Z-Move. Legendary beasts Raikou, Entei, and Suicune also feature as Grade 4 and 5 Pokémon. The Legendary Diving Pokémon Lugia was later available as the final Grade 5 Pokémon from late August on an eponymous course.

From this set, players with Ga-Olé Passes registered as having captured at least 2 Pokémon from the same group within a set will earn a Combo Bonus (Japanese: コンボボーナス) whenever one of those Pokémon is used in battle, boosting the relevant icon(s) along the Attack Gauge. Using a Pokémon from a completed group will provide a comparatively larger boost. The game may display a Get Combo Completion (Japanese: ゲットコンボかんせい) following a session in which Pokémon were dispensed, informing a player of which disks they have out of a given group.

Another feature introduced in this set was the chance to dispense a consolation disk if a player did not manage to catch or dispense any Pokémon upon reaching the third round in Get by Battle mode. An Experienced Trainer will appear following the conclusion of the game mode and present the player with a random Ga-Olé disk, which could include a Grade 5 Pokémon.

New items were introduced in Item Chance! Fighting Spirit Drink (Japanese: きあいドリンク) could be randomly purchased for 30 Ga-Olé Medals, which increases the starting Fighting Spirit in Get by Battle mode by 100%. In tandem with the Ga-Olé Pass Bonus, players could potentially start the first round with a Fighting Spirit value of 200%. Unlike other items, Gold Fragment (Japanese: きんのかけら) and Gold Sand (Japanese: きんのすな) cannot be purchased, appearing only as random drops from Pokémon players did not manage to catch during their Get by Battle playthrough. If acquired, these items can be redeemed for Ga-Olé Medals—Gold Fragment for 20 and Gold Sand for 10.

Trainer and Battle mode provided 5 new opponents for players to battle, although it was not selectable until August 10, 2017. The Trainers included 1 new class and a new Battle Leader that could not be challenged until the other 4 Trainers had been defeated, requiring the use of a Ga-Olé Pass to record a player's progress. Challenging the Battle Leader had the added incentive of earning 1 of 2 promotional disks, regardless of the outcome. Either Pikachu or Ho-Oh, 2 Pokémon in Battle Leader Takade's team, could be dispensed for an additional ¥100 following the battle. Disks dispensed if a player successfully defeated Battle Leader Takade had 'WINNER' on the illustration.

Alolan Raichu and Kommo-o were added as Support Pokémon from this set. As part of the Pokémon Ga-Olé Welcome Campaign (Japanese: ポケモンガオーレ ウェルカムキャンペーン!), a new feature with the Dash series, players registering a Ga-Olé Pass for the first time would automatically receive an Alolan Raichu as a Support Pokémon.
