Honestly, it's good for like...8 year olds...but I wouldn't recommend it for anyone older.

Not That Great

I wanted to see what the hype was about so I decided to pick up a title, and I don't get it. The story was very basic and even the end was a let-down. It just ends. Yes, yes the plot does get wrapped up, but the end itself is abrupt.

Second is the graphics: It looks as if the Pokemon were designed for a smaller screen then scaled up, leaving them ugly with large sprites.

Third is animation: I guess to save memory they used very basic animation where the Pokemon are stretched and twisted to convey attacks and status effects. As well as the stock attacks used for all Pokemon which are sometimes misplaced. (Dragon Breath comes out where?)

Another thing is the special event Pokemon. If you want to 100% complete the game you can't after the events are over as there are one, or two Pokemon you will never, ever, ever be able to catch. That's just stupid. Why make a game that makes a big deal about collecting over 600 Pokemon and there are a few that you can't get?
