Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire are two of the franchise’s all-time greats, and this pinball spin-off is also pretty wonderful.
Japanese developer Jupiter really deserve some credit. Year after year they toil away creating games of a consistently high standard, and yet they receive very little recognition.
The masterful Picross series is my personal favourite, but the studio’s Pokémon pinball game uses its source material in a variety of imaginative ways, and is a thoroughly enjoyable experience from start to finish.
