Pokémon Galactaball League (also known as Pokémon Galactic Soccer in Europe and Pokémon Galactic Football in Japan) is a soccer video game based on the Pokémon series for the Nintendo Switch. It is the alternate version of Mario Strikers Charged, which combines some elements from that game and has been released on June 26, 2020.

Gameplay

Pokémon Galactaball League shares some elements from Mario Strikers Charged. The referee in the game is Jirachi, who summons the magical galactic soccer ball called the galactaball onto the game to start the match. As mentioned above, Pokémon Galactaball League is based on street football. However, the sport played is much more physical. Two teams of four (not counting goalie) face off against each other to kick the ball into the goal within the time limit ranging from two to five minutes (three as the default amount). They may also choose to compete to reach a certain amount of goals first. When the time runs out, whoever has the most goals (or the next goal, if sudden death occurs) wins the match. If the score is tied at the end of the set amount, the current music will change and the siren will sound, signaling sudden death. Overall, the game has become much harsher as time has passed. Players may utilize various strategies, such as special powers, to get ahead. The information regarding use of items and special aspects of stadiums are found in their respective sections in this article.

Teams and Player Roles

Each team is headed by a captain, supported by three offensive/defensive sidekicks and one goalie. Two teams face each other with the aim to score the most points. Points are scored by shooting the ball past the goalie and into the goal. The captain is the leading member of any team and possesses both a Super Attack and a Mega Strike. While often an afterthought, sidekicks are crucial to the game. Knowing which position a sidekick is best at (such as defense or offense) can make or break a game. Goalies, or keepers as they are known in the European version, are the final line of defense. They are permitted to use their hands to block goals, but often are forced to use their bodies to do so. Similar to Mario Strikers Charged, Pokémon Captains and Sidekicks each have their own variety of music themes performed by various musical artists.
