Pokémon Bronze & Cobalt Versions are the primary paired versions of the Pokémon series' Generation TB1. Developed by Cogshift Studios in conjunction with GameFreak and published by Nintendo and The Pokémon Company, they are available for the Wii U, the first set of main series Pokémon games to be available for a home console. Additionally, they return to the previously used sprite-styled graphics contrary to Generation VI's 3D model style. The two take place in the Jungova and Unova regions and introduce around 100 new Pokémon while featuring many from the 6 proceeding canon generations. As with all paired Pokémon games, the games are essentially mirrors of each other with minor differences, such as some accessible Pokémon and story details.

Nintendo eShop Description

Battle, explore, collect, save the world! Pokémon [Bronze/Cobalt] Version is a stellar adventure for new and returning players to journey through not one, but two unique regions and develop the hero within themselves when a mischievous group in search of lost secrets begins causing trouble throughout the land.


  • Lap around the Jungova region and discover over _ new Pokémon species before returning to the Unova region to conquer the Pokémon league and become champion.
  • Partake in battles, contests, and other exciting events to grow closer to your Pokémon.
  • Interact with a friend who owns their own Version or [Cobalt/Bronze] Version to battle, trade and more.


The basic gameplay style follows that of the series to date: the player controls a child around 10 years old traveling around a region, occasionally needing to battle other trainers or complete puzzles to progress. Along the way, several Pokémon can be found and caught to add to your collection. You can only carry around six Pokémon at a time; if you own more than six, the ones that you do not select to join your current party can be deposited into the PC, a Pokémon storage system accessible through the computer found in many places such as Pokémon Centers, places where items can be bought and trainers have their Pokémon team restored to full health. Having multiple Pokémon is useful because of the different moves they can perform; discussed more in the battle system section, certain Pokémon match up better against others; additionally, in the overworld, certain puzzles can only be completed based on a move a Pokémon can learn (these moves can be taught to a Pokémon via Hidden Machine). Your Pokémon can be given items to hold and learn up to four moves; however, certain moves are only compatible with certain Pokémon. Moves can be taught through many methods. A move can only be used a certain amount of times in battle before it is drained of Power Points, or PP; these can be restored with items or through a Pokémon center.


In the overworld, as discussed, the player can progress through and explore the surrounding world, though many puzzles may stand in their way. For example, a particular path may be blocked until you collect a particular item or beat a certain trainer. In the field, a number of NPCs are present. While some may be simply talked to to gain information or an item, others may cause you to engage in a trainer battle. Additionally, walking in particular areas such as tall grass may cause you to encounter a wild Pokémon. Occasionally, based on story events, you may not be able to leave certain areas or advance to new ones. Outside of walking in the field, you can get around in other ways. In many areas (particularly outdoors), you can travel around on a bike at a higher speed, once the bike item is obtained. A Pokémon knowing a certain move can allow you to perform different tasks; Surf can allow you to cross water and Fly can allow you to instantly move between towns.

Battle System

The battle system basics have remained the same since the beginning of the series. The battles operate off of a turn-based system, where every turn, both Pokémon on the field will execute a move. The order is based off of each Pokémon's Speed stat; a higher Speed stat will allow a Pokémon to move earlier. This is given normal conditions; in a Trick Room scenario, it is the opposite; however, there are many field conditions that can modify basic mechanics, and those will not be specified here. A Pokémon's move can either be an attack, a special attack, or a status move. A physical attack will deal a certain amount of damage to the opponent based on a formula involving the attacker's Attack stat and the defender's Defense stat; a special attack does the same, but based on the attacker's Special Attack stat and the defender's Special Defense stat. The damage formula can be affected by a Pokémon's held item, field conditions, or stat boosts; additionally, the type of the move and the defender also is put into the formula. How it affects the formula can be found here. A status move can do a number of things; usually, it can inflict a permanent or temporary status condition onto the defender, cause a temporary modification in a Pokémon's stat, or set a new field condition, such as weather. Outside of using moves, the player has the option to use a non-held item, which can do a number of things depending on the item (for example, a potion can restore HP), switch into another team member (assuming they are not knocked out), or attempt to run from the battle. When a Pokémon's HP reaches a value of zero, it is considered knocked out; a battle is concluded when either the player successfully runs or one side is successful in knocking out all of the other's Pokémon. There are four types of battles; in a Single Battle, one Pokémon is active at a time on a given side, two in a Double Battle, and three in a Triple Battle. In a Rotation Battle, three Pokémon are active on each side at a time, but only one is usable and to change to another, you either have to switch or rotate to another active Pokémon and execute a move with it.

Wild Encounters

A wild encounter occurs by either interacting with an overworld Pokémon or (more commonly) simply randomly finding a Pokémon in tall grass, a cave, or other areas. In a wild encounter, the opposing Pokémon will randomly select moves. Wild Pokémon can also be caught. You have the option to throw a Poké Ball at them, or a variation of such item. Throwing a Poké Ball at a Pokémon with a lowered HP stat has a higher chance to catch them, but all Pokémon have unique catch rates. Additionally, certain wild Pokémon such as roaming Pokémon have the ability to run, which will end the battle.

Trainer Battles

In a trainer battle, you do not have the ability to run away and must take on the opponent's team; they can have up to six Pokémon as you can. Additionally, trainers do not select moves randomly, but off of AI. Depending on the trainer, their AI may be stronger or weaker; trainers with low AI may pick a poor move choice based on their matchup, whereas high AI trainers will usually always pick their best move and occasionally have the ability to switch out. Trainers can also possess items of their own such as HP restoration items or stat boosting items.

Tapping on one of the items will allow you to either use the item or select a "Back" option that will allow you to return to the category menu (B will also allow this). If your item is usable on a party Pokémon, your party will be displayed and you can select the Pokémon you would like to use the item on. There is also a "Back" option that will allow you to return to the item usage screen (B will also allow this).

    • Battle Items - category 4; contains items that can grant temporary stat boosts such as the X Attack.


The game begins in the room of the player, with the player playing Mario Kart 8 on his/her Wii U. The player’s mother can be heard calling them downstairs, and when they arrive, their mother notifies them that their friend from summer camp, Jamie, has moved in next door. The player exits the house and enters the one next to theirs to find Jamie’s parents standing in the kitchen with a number of Vigoroth moving in packages. Once the player gets upstairs, they run into Jamie setting her clock, who begins to chat with the player until the two are called outside.

When the two step outdoors, Professor Willow is waiting with the player’s mother, Jamie’s parents, and Adam, the player’s bad-natured neighbor. The professor welcomes Jamie to the Jungova region, and then asks the three children to come to her laboratory. Inside, she explains that now that there are three youths inhabiting Rocamont Town, she is ready to initiate an experiment she has had in mind for a number of years: to send three children out on a journey with a Pokémon each and see how the children and Pokémon grow. She allows the three to select a Pokémon each; the player will choose first, then Adam, who will choose the one with the type advantage to the player, and finally Jamie, who will pick the remaining one.

Professor Willow decides that if she is to send out these children on a journey around the Jungova region, she should give them a secondary goal so they have somewhere to go. She gives each child a Pokédex to complete as they circle the region, which she would have completed herself in her spare time, but found that this would benefit everyone. Adam also mentions the idea of challenging each Gym Leader to obtain all 8 badges and eventually conquering the Pokémon League. The three return to their parents to notify them of the recent events. The player’s mother will give them a Town Map and a SilphPod to carry with them, and after a farewell, the three stand upon the warp panel to Innova City to begin their journey.

Upon teleportation, the three find themselves at the end of a long hall, and come to discover themselves in Innova's City Center. Once the player exits, Jamie and Adam will follow, and when they begin to walk around, they will run into an elderly man wearing dark robes. He approaches the three, and explains in a mysterious tone that Professor Willow had instructed him to show them around. He walks them to the Pokémon Center and brings them inside. He explains how to use the mart, healer and PC, and how there is a center in most settlements. He then brings them back outside and points around to numerous landmarks of the city, including the Pokémon Gym, the soon-to-be-opened Contest Hall, and a number of others. His SilphPad goes off with an alert, and then informs the players that he has to leave. However, he does leave them with a pair each of Running Shoes. Jamie asks for his name, and he, after hesitation, responds by saying, "I am known by my affiliates as Bronius. Label me as you wish." He then hops onto his Pokémon and soars off.

After a bit of exploration, it is apparent to the player that not much in the city is currently open. The player moves onto Route 24, and is shortly joined by his/her companions. But once the player steps into the tall grass, he/she is stopped by Professor Willow, who was apparently doing research in the forest. After greeting the player and his/her friends, she admits that she forgot to show the player how to catch Pokémon. After a demonstration, she bestows upon each of the children 5 Poké Balls. She has to leave quickly and soars off upon her Pokémon. Jamie notes that they had forgotten to thank the Professor for sending Bronius to assist them. However, now basically prepared for adventure, the three children then go their separate ways.

After exploring Route 24 to an extent, the player has the option to take one direction in a split route; taking one way will bring them to Arburrow City, and the other to Tropirope City. Once one of the towns is entered, the other will have its gym closed until the future. Once the player enters the town, Jamie (Tropirope)/Adam (Arburrow) runs into the player and chats with them a bit. Apparently, they have already received the town's gym badge, and the player should test their skills so far as a trainer by challenging the gym. In fact, they can not exit the town to go to Route 25 due to an old man who tells them that it is too dangerous to leave without a single badge.

More TBA

Trainer Classes



All Pokémon previously introduced are integrated within these games, given the fact that the National Pokédex is available. However, not all are catchable; many of them can only be accessed through the PokéTransfer lab in Innova City in the postgame by being brought over from a Generation VI game. Not much has changed about Pokémon themselves in these games; you can still nickname them, battle with them, enter them into contests, etc.


Main article: /Regional Pokédex/

The Jungova Regional Pokédex features all new Pokémon introduced as well as a number of others. Not all catchable Pokémon can be found here; many postgame-only Pokémon are only documented in the National Dex. Additionally, the Unova Pokédex v3 can be accessed in the postgame after visiting Professor Juniper.

New Mega Evolutions

All Pokémon previously capable of Mega evolution can do such in this game. The following table includes all information on Pokémon who have been granted said ability in this game.

Name Original Pokémon Mega Manual Description Stone Ability Type
Mega Ferrothorn Ferrothorn "Ferrothorn has always been known to fend off even the most powerful of opponents with its threatening Iron Barbs; however, any sort of Fire-type attack is bound to melt it down into a KO. But when Ferrothorn performs Mega evolution, not only does it gain on its stellar defenses, but it gains the ability Heatproof, helping it survive such attacks. Additionally, it gains minor boosts to its Attack and Special Attack." Ferrothornite Heatproof GrassSteel
Mega Galvantula Galvantula TBA Galvantulenite Static Touch BugElectric
Mega Golurk Golurk "Created by ancient peoples, Golurk has always seemed to have hidden potential that humans have not yet tapped into--until its Mega Evolution was recently discovered. Golurk's strange ability to levitate and fly is fully triggered as it sprouts into a soaring monster. While Golurk does receive an intense drop in Attack, its Special Attack skyrockets as its appearance does, and its Speed and Defense slightly increase as well." Golurkenite No Guard FlyingGhost
Mega Starmie Starmie "It has always been speculated that Starmie's central gem is embedded with a communication system between something in the night sky, and with whatever it was communicating, it appears to have been able to interpret an ability to create a spacial environment given its Dimensional Shift. Starmie's tendancy to be able to fire off powerful Special attacks at a quick pace is maintained when it Mega evolves, but it only receives minor boosts to Special Attack with its Speed stat untouched. On the contrary, its defenses drastically improve giving it much more hit-taking capability." Starmienite Dimensional Shift WaterPsychic
Mega Hippowdon Hippowdon "Hippowdon's Sand Stream ability has always allowed it to bring about a sandstorm within the battlefield, and its Mega evolution can thoroughly take advantage of this. The ability Sand Armor allows Hippowdon to take super effective attacks much more easily in a sandstorm, and with its Attack upgrade, retaliate with Earthquake or another powerful move. Hippowdon also receives big boosts in Defense and Special Defense due to its heavy body, but does slow down with a Speed decrease." Hippowdite Sand Armor Ground
