The Pokémon Company, as part of the release celebration for the hit Nintendo Switch titles, “Pokémon Brilliant Diamond” and “Pokémon Shining Pearl”, will be making a special Original Effect “Make Faces with Pokémon” available for use on the short-video platform, TikTok, for a limited time only starting on November 28 (Sun). Play with your favourite Pokémon by making faces with them!
How to Play
First, 4 Poké Balls will appear on the left side of the screen where you can choose your favourite by pointing to one. 4 Pokémon in total will be available to choose from, including Pikachu, as well as your latest partners from “Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl” for the Nintendo Switch, Turtwig, Chimchar and Piplup.
After making your selection, you can ready that Poké Ball by making a fist with your hand. Then you can release it by opening your hand and you’ll see your Pokémon come flying out!
Once your Pokémon is out, you’ll then try to make “angry”, “sleepy” or “happy” faces while following a certain rhythm. By doing so, your Pokémon will copy you in an adorable manner!
Lastly, you’ll need to strike a pose when the music stops to finish your #MakeFacesWiithPokémon session!
