It looks like an absolute blast with some additional legendaries and usable moves to boot. Here’s a full description of the mode from the development team themselves:

In Catch ’Em battles, catchable wild Pokémon will appear across the map at different times. Look for Electrode, Tauros, Ludicolo, Avalugg, Araquanid, and Drednaw, along with the Legendary Pokémon Zapdos, Articuno, and Regigigas. When you defeat one of these wild Pokémon, you’ll catch it, and an icon representing that Pokémon will replace your battle item icon. You’ll have limited time to activate this icon, but when you do, you’ll play as that wild Pokémon.

When you start playing as a wild Pokémon, nearby opposing Pokémon will immediately be shoved away, giving you a moment to adjust to your new Pokémon. As a wild Pokémon, you’ll have access to its basic attack and two additional moves. However, you won’t have a Unite Move, and you won’t be able to teleport back to your base. You also won’t be able to score goals, so you’ll be supporting your teammates as they score. If you’re knocked out while playing as a wild Pokémon, you’ll revert back to your original Pokémon.

If you’re playing as Zapdos, Articuno, or Regigigas, you can use Zap Cannon, Ice Beam, or Hyper Beam (respectively) to weaken your opponents’ goal zones.

ADVERT

Catch ’Em battles take place in a slightly modified version of Mer Stadium. The basic rules are the same as a 4-on-4 quick battle, but the shield and HP recovery effects of your team’s forward goal zones will be increased. Also, after one of your forward goal zones is destroyed, a super jump springboard will appear at your team’s base. You can also earn extra points by helping your teammates defeat wild Pokémon.
