This game is part of the 3-D Expanding Adventure Series of Pokemon games that can be played by themselves or combined with other games in the series. The S.S. Anne is a cardboard boat with multiple decks. From the rulebook: You need the HM 01 "Cut" from the Captain, but there's just one problem ... Gary, your old rival, is blocking your passage! Roll the dice and make your way around the decks to battle and collect Pokemon. Then, when you get to the Captain's cabin on the top deck, get ready for the ultimate battle. Gary is waiting, and if you're the first player to defeat his Pokemon--you win!
