With the release of Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition (ポケモン+ノブナガの野望) only a few days away, a ton of new information about the game has been revealed in various magazines and on the official website. The game will be released in Japan on March 17th, 2012 and it features an all new system for Pokémon battles, known as "Combat" (イクサ). Below is all the newly revealed information.

Officers make Pokémon their partners. Pokémon and officers share a bond called a "link"; if their link is strong, they will be able to draw out each others powers. The link has a maximum limit deterined through the compatability of officer and Pokémon, so discovering the "Best Link Pokémon", the one they are 100% linked to, is one of the things officers aim for. Our characters page has been updated with the information about these officers.
