The blocks are shaped like various Pokémon which fall onto both screens; however, only the blocks on the bottom screen can be moved and matched. The blocks can be moved upwards, but will instantly fall back down if a match isn't made. If four of the same Pokémon are in a row, a match is made and those Pokémon will vanish. When a match of four is created, a Trozei Chance (or Link Chance) Icon will appear. When that happens, match-ups of three Pokémon are allowed for about 2 seconds. If a match of three is made during that time, match-ups of two Pokémon are allowed as well for as long as the player continues to make links every two seconds.
Pokémon Trozei! was given an 8.25 out of 10 by Game Informer for being "both charming and challenging enough that even those nauseated by the thought of Pokémon should really pick it up anyway."
Nintendo Power, which awarded the game an 8.5 out of 10, echoed that sentiment, stating it's "a stylish game that's a blast whether or not you're a fan of Pokémon".
