The follow-up to Pokemon Go has arrived in app stores offering fans a new take on the famous franchise.

Pokemon Duel is a strategy game so don’t expect to be running around hunting for Pokemon.

The idea is to collect virtual figures and fight them to take over territory from your rival.

“This is a mobile strategy game where players deploy digital Pokemon figures, making strategic moves and setting figures against each other in battle as they try to reach the goal in their opponent’s territory,” said the company.

There are single player and league modes so users battle other human opponents.

The game is free and is available in New Zealand for Apple and Android devices.
