The high score and download machine

The game was first available for download at PokéPark. It later became available for download at Pokémon Centers, and at Pokémon Festa. In Pokémon Centers, the distribution machines also displayed the high score list.


The game is set on a river flowing into the sea. After a certain amount of time, the area that the player is in changes. In every area there are several different Pokémon to catch. The Nintendo DS system is held horizontally during play.

On the top screen there is a water area, with shadows of underwater Pokémon occasionally visible. The floater also moves back and forth until the A button is pressed (or the touch screen is tapped), at which point it is cast into the water. Once the floater is pulled underwater, the player must immediately press the A Button repeatedly.

Caught Pokémon are displayed on the touch screen, while their score is displayed on the top screen. The score is determined by three factors: size, level, and rarity. If the total score of all five caught Pokémon ranks in the top 50 scores, it will be sent to the master high score list, and can then be viewed on the PokéPark: Fishing Rally DS machines in Pokémon Centers.

The player can store up to five Pokémon in the game, but all data other than the high score sent to the server is lost upon shutting down the Nintendo DS system, as the game is only temporary.
