Pokémon Battrio operates on a {{wp|List of Sega arcade system boards#Triforce|Triforce}} arcade system and uses cel-shaded graphics. The machine costs ¥100 to operate for each player; a random puck is also dispensed from the machine per coin inserted. The console itself has only two buttons for each player; an orange button that is used to cycle through options in the game, and a larger yellow button used to confirm commands and interact with certain gameplay mechanics. Above these are 4x4 grids that the pucks are placed on and manipulated, as their positioning directly influences the positioning of the Pokémon on the in-game battlefield. Between these grids in the center of the console is the infrared scanner used for scanning in pucks.<br>
New mechanics are often introduced to keep the game alive, and as such, the system itself is upgraded to accommodate these new changes, as well as cosmetic changes to the interface.
*'''Pokémon Battrio''' was the launch version and proving ground for the games appeal.
