if u like pokemon mystery dungeon u will like these game. if u dont really like the regular style pokemon games u will like these game. for pokemon mystery dungeon lovers:(good) it is easyer to befriend pokemon u can befriend more pokemon and u dont have to go somewhere else to change pokemon. there is more then just dungeons to explore(like lacks,canyons, caves and allot more in including battle royalls) bad:pokemon can only know 2 moves, they dont level up, they dont evolve. and u have to go to a gumball type thing and buy random moves.
regular pokemon style players: you dont have to level up for gyms u just have to get better pokemon. u dont get fossils they are all ready pokemon.

The spin offs of Pokemon are always hit or miss. This one's a huge miss. There is no way to erase a saved game and start over so don't even bother renting it. The copy I got had a complete story with most of the pokemon captured. It completely destroys any replayability the game may have had by making replaying it impossible.
Not that I think many people would want to replay this. The gameplay is so basic and repetitive. To a ridiculous extent. Its cool that you can get almost all of the 600 pokemon, but they all control the same and the gameplay is just to boring to bother testing out all of your favorites. Speaking of the pokemon, that brings me to another problem I have with this game. They're not actually pokemon, but toy pokemon. The sprites for the pokemon range from mediocre to awful looking and the whole idea of toy pokemon is just stupid to be honest.
If you want a good pokemon game in 2012 wait for Black and White 2. If you can't wait to see pokemon in 3D just download the free Pokedex to hold you over until the 6th generation is released. This game is not worth your time or money
