Aside from some changes to pre-existing types, a new type known as the type was added to the game. The Cyber type revolves around digital Pokemon or those with futuristic machinery or origins, as well as some extraterrestrials. Examples include Porygon, Elgyem, and Genesect.
The following Pokemon have been retyped (including those retyped outside of the Cyber type):
Type Chart Changes
The Cyber type's type matchups are as follows:
The game's battle format is greatly different than that of traditional Pokemon games. Rather than using a turn-by-turn format, players are able to move freely within a certain area, attacking as they please, dodging enemy attacks (although some are particularly difficult or impossible to dodge), and defending themselves to take less damage, similarly to the series' anime, to change and spice up gameplay a bit. Moves are now used through pressing certain buttons, making the battle system comparable to a fighting game.
Unlike in previous Pokemon games, catching Pokemon works a bit differently. Rather than the player simply weakening the Pokemon and catching it, players also have an option of slowly gaining the Pokemon's trust, which will not only give them high friendship when caught but also give you a higher chance of catching the Pokemon. Some Pokemon take longer to trust the player than others; however, it is possible for almost all Pokemon.
The friendship mechanic plays a much bigger role in this game than previously. Rather than it simply deciding evolutions of certain Pokemon, the power of Return and Frustration, and certain in-game events, friendship plays a big role in a Pokemon's trust and loyalty. Pokemon with low friendship will likely disobey the player, and the more their friendship is decreased, the chance of said effect happening is raised. Higher friendship also brings effects from Pokemon-Amie in Gens 6 and 7, as Pokemon-Amie now raises friendship rather than the different and separate affection.
North Samazo is easily the most traditional part of the region, with the cities and areas being very natural and old-fashioned. It is in a constant debate with the southern part of the region on whether tradition or technology is more important.
West Samazo is the most advanced and expensive part of the region. It contains many mansions and most of its inhabitants are rich. However, its westernmost areas are of a hot and sandy climate and environment. It is the least populated part of the region, excluding the center.
Central Samazo is the smallest part of the region and also where the player originates from. It does not have many features; its most notable features are its Pokemon Champion's Tournament and Professor Baobab's Pokemon Lab.
East Samazo is the most populated part of the region, featuring many attractions, such as a Pokemon Amusement Park, Hotel, beautiful beach, and Department Store.
South Samazo is the most technological, advanced, and polluted side of the region. It is constantly in a feud with North Samazo on whether tradition or technology is more important.
Replacing the Pokemon Day Care, the Pokemon Ranch is a facility given to the player that can be bought for $20000 in-game. Once obtained, the player gets to keep this farm to themselves; this works as a larger PC box of sorts where Pokemon can roam freely and the such. The player can also breed Pokemon here; up to 3 Breeding Rooms can be unlocked, all of which allow Pokemon to breed within them. After receiving an Egg, the player must hatch the egg as usual. A friendly man known as Papo and his daughter Gloria take care of your Pokemon while you're away.
Mega Evolution works considerably different in this game than in Gen 6. Rather than the player simply entering Mega Evolution through transforming during battle, the player has the option of Mega Evolving outside of battle, making it usable as if it was a regular Pokemon. However, in this state, the Pokemon cannot learn any new moves by any method except for TMs/HMs and tutoring (where they may learn new moves through this method), and they must hold the Mega Stone at all times as otherwise they will revert to their normal form. Mega Evolutions will wear off after a certain amount of time, with the time limit varying depending on the Mega Stone. Once the Mega Evolution is done being used, the player must wait for the Mega Stone to recharge before it is used again.
Many new Mega Evolutions are introduced to this game.
The HM Slot is a separate move slot that is exclusively meant for HMs. This is done so that trainers do not limit their Pokemon's movepools with HMs, while still being able to use them, both in and outside of battle. HM Moves are not limited to HM Slots; however, it is recommended to use at least one in an HM Slot, to have a varied moveset. The move in an HM Slot can still be used in battle.
Arcane Jewels are a new feature in the game that work as special attributes that change a Pokemon's performance. These Jewels are equipped in a secondary item slot, being completely unrelated to the primary item slot. However, Arcane Jewels cannot be used instead of a regular item, making them restricted to their slot. Arcane Jewels have many effects in battle, such as boosting certain types of moves, applying some effects, or raising stats.
NOTE: Locations in each section of Samazo are listed from northernmost to southernmost.
Locations in North Samazo:
|Hyogor Town||A small, old-fashioned town up in the northern mountains. The city, similarly to Pacifidlog Town of the Hoenn region, is built on natural material; in this case, the entire city is built on a series of glaciers.|
|Shynwell Town||A town with lots of lore behind it; it is said to be where the Pokemon of peace and war fought and also where the Pokemon of peace rests. It features a retirement home, making it a common place for seniors to reside in.|
|Jumokel Town||A very small town located deep in the woods. If not for its famous herbal medicine and nearby Pokemon Gym, this town would generally be forgotten.|
|Mizumor Town||A town that's popular for Fisherman; it features a large lake and river running through it, making it one of the best spots in the region to fish. It features a popular seafood restaurant known as Frank's Fish, owned by the player's uncle.|
Locations in West Samazo:
|Yufuko City||A rather rich city with wealthy inhabitants. It features high-class restaurants and attractions, many mansions, and hedges shaped to resemble Pokemon. It is West Samazo's wealthiest city. It features a Gym, which is one of the mansions itself.|
|Yuutsa Town||A rather depressing and negative town that is the way it is due to being a human and Pokemon graveyard, resulting in many inhabitants and visitors to be sad about their losses. It is comparable to Lavender Town of Kanto.|
|Erekutor City||A bustling city with game corners, dirty apartments, and various bars. It is considered to be the poorest place in the West side of Samazo; as a result, it is often looked down upon by W-Samazo's other cities. It features a gym underground, in the sewers.|
|Kyoi City||A Pokemon city that is heavily driven by academics; it cares for education more than anything, and is considered the perfect place to live the last days of your life. It is the location of the PTU, or Pokemon Trainer University.|
Locations in Central Samazo:
|Kaisi Village||A small village and the player's hometown. Its most well-known feature is Professor Boabab's Pokemon Laboratory.|
|Saigoro City||A famous city tat hosts the Pokemon Champion's Tournament, the final test for trainers in Samazo. It also features skilled trainers itching for battles.|
Locations in East Samazo:
|Isogashe City||The biggest city and capital of the Samazo region. It features many attractions (including the Pokemon Universal Championship, Samazo National Hotel, and various restaurants), and is similar to similarly enormous cities such as Castelia City and Lumiose City.|
|Tanoshel City||The region's second largest city and a common attraction for tourists. It features the Pokemon Amusement Park and a large, popular park known as Tanoshel Park. A gym is located within Tanoshel Park.|
|Shisol City||Another popular city featuring a department store and beautiful beach. It also has many smaller hotels (although the don't compare to Samazo National Hotel) and is home to the Pokemon Universal Championship.|
|Mekal Town||A small town that wouldn't be noticed if it weren't for its engineering workshop and huge marshes, as well as a secret gym in a marsh nearby. The region's Safari Zone is located near here.|
Locations in South Samazo:
|Denkir City||A large city with a huge power plant in the center that supposedly fuels all of Samazo's electricity. It is generally dirty and polluted and sadly, not much people in the area care to clean it.|
|Tobakor Town||Also known as the "Gaming City", Tokabor Town is home to gamers of all kinds, and features various arcades, gaming tournaments, and even the Game Freak HQ. It also features an arcade-based Gym.|
|Sensore City||A city with the military base of the region, hosting the region's weapons and the such. Not many live here and it is restricted to many due to its purpose and environment.|
|Suiyo Town||A small town by the sea with a dock, harbor, and many ships, for various purposes. It also features a beach that, unlike East Samazo's more popular kind, is made more for calmness and relaxation due to its few visitors, quiet atmosphere and environment, and beautiful scenery.|

Samazo's Pokemon League is different than that of previous generations. Rather than each gym revolving around a specific type, the gyms revolve around a specific theme. So, for example, the Kewaso Town Gym is based on a cave, with the gym being designed after one, and the Gym Trainers and Leader using Pokemon that inhabit caves. There are a total of 6 Gyms in Samazo, in constrast to previous generations' 8. Upon obtaining all 6 Gym Badges, the player can challenge the Pokemon Champion's Tournament, which is an enormous tournament where trainers will battle, with losing trainers being removed from the tournament. That who wins not only wins a trophy, but access to fight the Elite Four in the same tournament battlefield. Defeating the Elite Four allows you to fight the Champion, who once defeated, allows you to take the title of Champion yourself and enter the Hall of Fame.
The game's gyms can be challenged in any order, but the gyms' difficulty varies based on how many badges the player has. Therefore, unlike previous Pokemon games, the Pokemon League is more of a side-quest than actual focus.
