By achieving high scores in the mini-games, players will unlock new levels and eventually figure out what's so mysterious about the Mystery Cave, an area currently locked in my version of the app.

It's no full-on Pokémon role-playing game for the iPhone/iPad/iPod, but any app that puts officially licensed Pokémon on my phone or tablet for free is welcome in my app-space.
