In Pokémon Pinball, the goal is to catch all 150 species of Pokémon creatures. In this process, you will have two pinball tables to traverse, much like the two different versions of the original main game prior to Pokémon Yellow Version, Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue. These tables will take you to different locations from the beloved first generation of the game franchise, from Viridian City through Lavender Town, Cinnabar Island and even beyond! Furthermore, according to the item's auction listing on Heritage Auctions' website:

Pokémon Pinball – Wata 6.5 A+ Sealed, GBC Nintendo 1999 USA. The battery-powered rumble feature in the cartridge is intended to make the game feel like a real pinball machine. As in many standard Pokémon games, the player can catch up to 150 monsters. Wata notes, "Seal applied 90 degrees rotated; Fading on box."
