A Heart-Warming Story of One Cat’s Quest to Become Human and a Town’s Tale of Redemption

One day, out of the blue, you receive an invitation for a tour of Amatsu-Sora. A peaceful town in the mountains famous for its beautiful vistas, onsens and fruit orchards.

You arrive on a tour bus to find streets are deserted, life is gone and the once bright town is now desolate and lonely… You see Toro at the broken town sign. He lets you know why he is also in Amatsu-Sora. “”Hello friend, I heard rumors of a mystical onsen in the town that can turn me into a human. I came to find it but I don’t think I can do it on my own. I need your help, mew~””

Kindly, you decide to help him. After fixing the battered sign, you and Toro are made tour ambassadors by the shy blue cat Sora. Together, you, Toro and friends, breath life back into the town and restore the magical experience that used to entice travelers to Amatsu-Sora!”

Have Even More Fun with Friends!

Through your friends in the game, you can send and receive hearts that you need to complete puzzles to earn stars and explore the town! Your Pokepi friends can also learn from your friends too! So maybe you’ll learn new things about your friends from the Pokepi.
