Pokémon Dream Radar

Pokémon Dream Radar logo

The Pokémon Dream Radar is a game application you can download from the 3DS eShop for a one-off fee of £2.69/€2.99/$2.99.

In this game you become Professor Burnett's new assistant, and she needs your help studying the Interdream Zone! To help with her research, she needs you to catch Dream Orbs. To collect these Dream Orbs, you must enter the Interdream Zone and use the Beam to destroy the Dream Clouds.

There are two different types of Dream Clouds: pink and stormy. When the Pink Dream Clouds are hit, they break into Dream Orbs. When Stormy Dream Clouds are hit, they too break into Dream Orbs, but they can also contain Pokémon or Items instead of Dream Orbs. Depending on the size of the Cloud, the number of Orbs vary. If a Dream Cloud is at it's largest, then it will break into four or five Dream Orbs!

At the start of the game you can only collect Pink Orbs, and as you progress in the game new colors of Orbs will appear! Once you have collected a certain number of Orbs, you can unlock new Extensions which unlock new Pokémon!
