Gameplay in Dawn and Dusk is highlighted by a turn-based battle system in which players strategically position the game’s 400 Digimon for maximum combat efficiency. Through a local wireless connection or online via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service, players can battle against others and make trades to obtain rare Digimon that can only be found in certain versions of the game.
