The boys were recently sent the Pokemon Battle Arena to review. They are huge fans of Pokemon so they were pleased when they saw this month’s toys that they were sent from Tomy.
The Pokemon Battle Arena is priced around £45. It is suitable for children aged 4 years old and over due to its small parts. It comes with two Pokemon characters and you can use other characters that are available to buy separately.
The battle arena can be played as a single player or multiplayer game. You can play against the computer or battle against a fellow Pokemon trainer. It is easy to switch between the two modes of play too as it is literally just flicking a switch. If you have lots of Pokemon figures then you can have a full battle and you continue playing until you defeat all your opponents Pokemon. If however you only have one each then you can choose the quick play mode which is just one round battle.
Once you select a Pokemon figure, watch as the battle attacks illuminate the full colour LED display and the sounds bring the epic battle to life. Your knowledge of the Pokemon combined with your timely attacks and defences will determine who wins the battle.
What I like about this toy is that there is no assembly required, it is fastened in the box rather securely but even this didn’t take too long to sort out. The toy also requires 4 x AA batteries to work but these are included so once it is out of the box you can play straight away.
I think this toy would make the perfect gift idea this Christmas for any Pokemon fan.
