Huge advancement in social gaming

This game takes me back to the days of final fantasy tactics and Fire Emblem. Very good turn-based strategy game. Each character class has unique strengths and weaknesses which really provides a lot of gameplay depth. My only complaint so far is that there isn't a single player campaign option. A game like this begs to be played but as it stands you can only play it as often as your friends will allow. I'd love to go back and forth against AI.

This game has been neglected for quite some time now and it’s a darn shame. This is easily the game I have spent the most money on in the app store. I bought all the different teams and then all of a sudden they just stopped supporting it. Now notifications don’t work and it takes multiple tries to submit a move. I hope the developer doesn’t abandon this gem completely. It’s one of the app stores finest.

Council Skin Pack: Pokémon

Council Skin Pack: Pokemon
Knight = Dragonite
Dragonite can learn the move Dragon Tail, which attacks the enemy and pushes them out of battle to be replaced with a random teammate.
Archer = Bulbasaur
Bulbasaur can learn the move Seed Bomb, which deals a considerable amount of damage.
Wizard = Pikachu
Pikachu is an electric-type Pokémon.
Cleric = Alomomola
Alomomola, the caring Pokémon, "gently holds injured and weak Pokémon in its fins. Its special membrane heals their wounds." Two of its three possible abilities are healer and regenerator, and it can learn the move Heal Pulse, which heals any Pokémon other than the user.
Ninja = Alakazam
Alakazam can teleport.
Inferno = Electrode
Electrode can learn the move Self-Destruct, which knocks out the user and greatly damages other Pokémon in battle.
Runemetal = X Attack
An X Attack raises the attack of a Pokémon in battle.
Dragonscale = X Defend
An X Defend raises the defense of a Pokémon in battle.
Shining Helm = X Sp. Def
An X Sp. Def raises the special defense, or magical defense, of a Pokémon in battle.
Revive Potion = Revive
A revive recovers a Pokémon from fainting and restores half of their health.
Supercharge = Liechi Berry
A liechi berry increases a Pokémon's attack when their HP is low. More importantly, berries are consumable, and this one raises attack.

Could have a new Pokemon team instead

Great strategy

Cons: needs new maps. Everything else is superb and most of all - fun. It has a nice community of diehard players that make it fun as well. The default tribe, Council, is no pushover to the paid teams. In fact it's one of my favorites. Now, if you think Council is nerfed, and like I said, it's not... You can simply play Council vs. Council with like-minded players and still have a blast. This is a match-by-match game, there is no ongoing saga that in-app purchases are required to proceed or keep up. The maps are simple, the strategy is quite good. The art and animation are very good and have character. This is a BOARD game at its heart. The graphics are perfect for it. Bottom line - a very fun turn-based strategy game well done.
