Like a lot of people, I'm a Pokemon fan. So I wanted to buy this game. It isn't too bad, but the controls suck, and the game is a walk in the park. Sure the game is a little good, especially cause you don't have to play as pikachu all the time, and you can sort of battle in this spinoff (unlike the other 2 pikachu games). If you like easy games, and are a fan of Pokemon and/or Pikachu, jump at it. If you are a Hardcore gamer, This won't satisfy you. I beat it in 3 days.Too Easy!

Though this game was extreamly cute, I found the fact that I could only play as Pikachu, even AFTER I beat the game, was horrible. Pikachu is overused in Pokemon games and, hello, there are 500+ other Pokemon that want a turn!
But this isn't a rant, it's a review. So here: The graphics were cute and the story line, though meant for younger kids, was also good. As a teenager I found it a bit annoying and slow paced and expected a lot more from a highly rated game. This was not the best Pokemon game.
It was also annoying hearing "Pika?" "Bulba- bulbasaur!" every few minutes when I walked by someone or tried to start a minigame. Yeah- TV show voices.
The lack of trainers was great but I wish there was more to this game. I gave it such a low rating because the negative really beat out the positive for me.
