Best for Hardcore Battlers ONLY

This game is tough to rate. During the first gameplay, you think that this game is for Pokémon gamers of all levels. The animation looks awesome. You can sync your Pokémon from Diamond, Pearl or Platinum.

The battles start out easy. There are several Coliseums that consist of rounds of battles. Most of the battles are 4 rounds and then a challenge by the Coliseum leader. If you beat the entire Coliseum, you get points that you can trade for costume items or Mystery Gifts to send to your Pokémon game.

However, the game gets increasingly difficult as you advance to new Coliseums. Some of the Coliseums force you to pick from a random set of Pokémon. If you aren't familiar with EVERY type and evolution of EVERY Pokémon, you will have problems.

In short, if you want to be able to beat this game in it's entirety, you MUST be a Hardcore Pokémon Battler. You must be able to predict correctly what your opponent will pick, and how to counteract their strengths. It is TOUGH and not for the casual Pokémon fan!

If you're not an Expert Pokémon Battler (i.e. if you can't beat the Pokémon Tower in D/P/Platinum) you will NOT enjoy this game!

Fun but Repetitive.

Pokémon Battle Revolution is a fun game, but like any other Pokémon game it is repetitive.
The game play is smooth, and the ability to transfer your Pokémon from Diamond and Pearl, without buying any extension for the Wii is a plus, but The announcer ends up saying the same thing over, and over again. Not to mention the lack of story for single player.

This game is another great addition to a long line of fun Pokémon games, but if you are going to buy a fun multiplayer Wii game, I suggest waiting for The new Crystal Chronicles game, or simply buy WarioWare Smooth Moves.

As Far as Pokémon Battle Revolution goes, it's fun, it's repetitive, and if you were looking for a fun Pokémon game, you found one, but between you and me, I would choose Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl or Battle Revolution any day.
