Pokemon Rumble Rush to cease all rumblin’ this summer

Don’t get ready to rumble

Recommended Videos

Mobile title Pokémon Rumble Rush will shut its servers this summer, a little over a year after the free-to-play title’s 2019 inception. The game will officially shut down on the morning of July 22.

Launching in May last year, Pokémon Rumble Rush is the fifth title in the Pokémon Rumble series, and the first for mobile platforms, following previous releases on Nintendo’s Wii, Wii U, and 3DS consoles. Rumble Rush features typical Pokémon catching/battling action, with upgrades allowing for trainers to affix special boosts and effects to their favourite critters. You can check out the original trailer below.


Until July 22, Pokémon Rumble Rush can be played as per usual. Surprisingly, it even has a new update scheduled for May 27, adding even more Pokémon to the mix. So if you are playing Rumble Rush, you can at least take heart in knowing the game will go out with a bang, if a small-scale one. Perhaps you can then fill the void with Niantic’s Pokémon GO or Nintendo’s upcoming Pokémon Sleep instead.
