The field of the stadium


Pokémon Baccer is a game played on a circular shaped pitch, which has two slopes (colored red and blue) placed across it. The object of the game is for either of the two teams of three Pokémon to try to knock a spinning-top shaped object into a pyramid that is floating around the stadium. For every goal that is scored, one point is awarded to the team, and the highest-scoring team when the time runs out wins the match. All of the teams are three-stage evolution families which have a member in each evolutionary stage, except the Nimbasa Legends, which, although it was a fraud, were also related to each other as the Legendary beasts.
