Newsbrief: Pokemon Rumble Rush is being shut down one year after it launched on iOS and Android. The free-to-play mobile title landed on July 23, 2019, and will be switched off for good on July 22, 2020.
Developer Ambrella broke the news to fans in a short in-game message that was posted on Reddit, but didn't offer any reason for the game's closure.
The title is published by The Pokemon Company and is the fifth entry in the Pokemon Rumble series. Like its predecessors, the game features toy Pokemon that can be controlled through tap controls.
Players progress by moving battling their way through islands containing other pocket monsters and boss Pokemon that must be defeated.
