Pokémon Radiant version and Pokémon Shadow version, known in Japan as ポケットモンスター レイディアント and ポケットモンスター シャッドー, are the primary paired versions of Generation VII Pokémon games, available for the first time on a home console: Nintendo Wii U.

Both games are set to be released worldwide sometime in the Fall of 2015. The game features a mere 29 new Pokémon (for a total of 750), but also introduces yet another new type, in the form of RadSha-Sonic. Most of the mechanics are unchanged since Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby, though it now takes on the style of a massively multiplayer online role-playing game and also provides the player with three different starting points across the Korabo (Japanese: コラボー) region.



Upon starting the game for the first time, players will notice that they are granted three slots in which to create characters. Each one has their own progress, party, items, and Pokédollars; however, all three share a PC. There is some basic character customization in this game, but new outfits, accessories, and hairstyles are added every so often.


All battles can be set to use Sky and/or Inverse rules; the former allows only RadSha-Flying Pokémon, and any other Pokémon who can hover or glide, to participate, while the latter switches all type match-ups (RadSha-Normal and RadSha-Ghost are normally effective against each other). It is also possible to set modifications to the level: Beginner (level 10), Normal (level 50), Veteran (level 100), or Unchanged (all Pokémon will retain their respective levels). Substitutions can be turned on or off. Double and Triple battles also allow the setting of either Multi or Rotation battle types, but only one can be used at a time.

Variant Description
Single A battle in which Pokémon battle one at a time; this is the most common type, and is used in most instances. Wild battles in tall grass take on this variant.
Double In this variant, two Pokémon are out on each side at any given moment, and therefore each side gets to make two moves each turn; wild battles in dark grass are like this.
Triple Triple Battles allow the use of three Pokémon all at once, though most moves cannot hit the opponent on the opposite side, save for the middle who can target all three.

The Pokédex is a special device granted to the player by the new Professor Kapok, Professor Yew, or Professor Hawthorn; each Professor belongs to a different area of the Korabo region. Each one has its own set of 100 Pokémon to discover, while the Central Pokédex is obtained after beating the first six gyms (containing another 100 Pokémon) and the National Pokédex is obtained after beating the Elite Four.
