Pokemon Rumble Rush is Shutting Down July 22nd

Some sad news to report – Pokemon Rumble Rush is going to cease to exist in a couple of months. The game, which is one of a slew of Pokemon titles that landed on mobile over the last year, will shut down on July 22nd.

Pokemon Rumble Rush has only been out for a year. The game is pretty simple – you control everything with one finger, from moving to fighting. The aim is to explore a bunch of different areas, collecting Pokemon as you go.

Of all the recent Pokemon releases, Rumble Rush was probably the weakest. It’s sad to see it go, but it doesn’t come as a huge surprise in the cut-throat world of mobile gaming.

The game’s servers will stay live until July 22nd, and there are some events coming up to celebrate its demise. According to Serebii, from May 6th to May 27th you’ll be able to take part in the Greninja and the Wonders of Kalos event.

There are two battle royale events as well. The Shaymin Cup from April 22nd to May 6th and the Zygarde Cup from May 13th to May 27th. Then on May 27th a final update will add a whole load more Pokemon for you to find.

You can’t buy Poke Diamonds in the game anymore, and anyone with any left in their account come shutdown day will be refunded.
