I rented this game for my son to play. He loves Pokemon and has all the games on the DSi. This game is just pathetic, i can't think of any other word for it. It was created for children under 5 (my 5yr old niece said it was stupid also).
You watch 5 minutes or so of animation, then play for 30 seconds, then 5 or more minutes of animation and repeat for the first 45 minutes or so, my son and neice and I lost interest and shut the game off after suffering that long.
Glad this was a rental and I can return it, it's not even worth the monthly fee for renting here.
