Remember Pokemon? They're back ... in pog form!


Well, not pogs exactly, but somewhat less-exciting pog-like pucks that are still a lot more fun-looking than the usual cards used in Japanese arcade games. Pokemon Battrio is a new arcade game created by Tomy that allows 3-on-3 Pokemon Battle Revolution-style battling against random arcadegoers! In Japan, obviously, since there are no arcades in the US.

Here's how (it looks like) it works: you buy random packs of coins, each one corresponding to a Pokemon. Then you set them down on the machine, the machine "senses" your coins, and then they appear, ready for battling! Then some older kids run by and steal your coins.
