Pokemon Duel

The Pokemon Company has announced that Pokemon Duel service will end on October 31st, 2019.

This means that the game will be unplayable outside of a few features. In addition, players cannot purchase any further Diamonds after today, and may request a refund for any that they still have after October 31st. The Player Pass will also stop being purchasable. 


A new patch is now available for Pokemon Duel that brings the game up to Version 7.0.0 and introduces a “Z-Powered” update.
