This game could have been so great, yet nintendo decided to rush it and it came out complete poo, or near-poo. Here's whats good about this game. The graphics the pokemon look cool and were very nicely animated based on the wiis graphic capabilities I would give the graphics a 9 out of 10. Difficulty I would give an 8. At some times I breezed through stadiums and other times I played for hours cussing at the screen because it was too hard. When you make pokemon hard for me it is actually more enjoyable. Also online gaming was fun and had little kinks the wait time would get somewhat ridiculous but never too bad. Ok with all the good stuff out of the way lets get to the bad. First thing I notice right away is the annoying announcer with about three phrases, I swear if I hear "Immolated by blast burn!!!" one more time I'll freak! I know there is an option to turn the announcer off but then you would be stuck with the repetitive music and lack luster pokemon cries. Why didn't nintendo give the characters voices?? I understand there are a jillion different pokemon but they could of just had the trainers say generic things like "You can do it!!" or something. The last major complaint I have about this game is that the pokemon moves look horrible.. and when they get hit by the moves they look even more horrible.. My favorite was when you do a ko on an opponent and their pokemon is still dancing around until they notice that they have no health and they finally "faint" if they are going to get ko'ed then change the animation you lazy butts!!
This game is rushed, repetitive, and basically not good. They threw it together just to get it out there. There's no mini games or anything to do but battle and buy different outfits for your trainer. The pokemon have no texture to their bodies, so they look no better then there gamecube versions.
I'd like to say it's just a glorified version of the first pokemon stadium, but I think stadium was better.
The main thing that I can say about this game is the graphics and the fact that if you use a physical move, then your Pokémon went over and attacked them directly. I was really disappointed that you can't move or level your Pokémon up or even choose if you want to be a girl or a boy. My favorite beginner's pass has the girl, so I have to be stuck with being a girl. And the other thing is that you can't even choose your person's name, you can only choose the name of your file but that isn't your person's name which made me kinda mad.
