Intro
(Japanese: '''ポケモンバトリオ''' ''Pokémon BATTRIO'') is an arcade game in the vein of [[Pokémon Stadium series|Pokémon Stadium]] or {{g|Battle Revolution}}, in that the sole focus is on Pokémon battles. The game uses special pucks that affect which Pokémon can be used. The main gameplay difference is that three Pokémon are used on each side (a [[Triple battle|feature]] later introduced in [[Generation V]]), hence the name "Battrio", a contraction of the words "Battle" and "Trio".
 
Conceived as a joint venture between {{wp|Takara Tomy}} and {{wp|AQ Interactive}}, the development of Pokémon Battrio was announced on April 11, 2007 by Takara Tomy vice president Keita Satoh and AQ Interactive vice president Yoji Ishii. Marketed at a primary audience of 6-12 years, the battle system was stipulated to be much simpler when compared to the [[Version|core release]] of Pokémon games. Battrio was originally scheduled to launch on July 14, 2007, but was pushed back to September 14 the same year. With the release of the Battrio V upgrade in July 2011, all machines and merchandise were branded under the Takary Tomy A.R.T.S. and {{wp|Marvelous AQL}} labels after several company mergers.
