This is a really good game. This is my second time renting it.
It has WiFi which is really cool. you can trade Pokémon with people all over the world. This game is challenging, and not as easy as the others. It's really addicting too, sometimes you can't put it down. It has new Pokémon, a new map and the graphics are really good. The towns are 3D, but its still 2d when you battle. Pokémon lovers will really enjoy this game. I'm 14 and i love it. Pearl is just as good too, but has some diff Pokémon.
Although a lot of good Poke'mon games are good (Most of them, anyways), this game is especially exceptional. It has 100+ new Poke'mon, an amazing feat, and the graphics have popped into full 3D (Yay!). A special watch has been added, with real time and poke'mon status and whole cache of unlockable functions. You can create "Puffins" that will boost your Pokémon's stats in special contests. And that's just single player. The list goes on & on. But ,all that aside, this is pretty much your average Poke'mon game. You start as a boy or girl from Twinleaf Town with a starter Poke'mon ( Either Turtwig, Piplup, or Chimchar)and then proceed through the Sinnoh region and gathering new Poke'mon, talking with new people, & Defeating trainers. Defeating the gym leaders (Especially tough, they are) will earn you badges to let use moves like FLY and SURF when not in battle. By collecting all of the badges, you can challenge the Elite Four and become the ultimate Poke'mon master. The story also includes a new team of bad guys that replace Team Rocket. The multiplayer battles are on wifi, so no messy cables to be found. The touch screen is extremely useful for quickly selecting items and actions. However, a few key faults keep this game from achieving total stardom. Just like the other Poke'mon games, you must trade with Pearl owners to complete your Poke'Dex. And in order to collect your Pok'emon from previous games, you must first complete your ENTIRE POKE'DEX. You must also try to capture them before adding them to your party. I really wanted to get my Moltres from LeafGreen into my party, but I couldn't do that before completing the game. Also, the new Poke'mon look a l-i-t-t-l-e TOO cute. Also, Nintendo, next time, try to feature a few voiceovers and/or personal phrases. In fact, let the gamers say their phrases into the DS mic. Rent it first, then buy it if you like it, because it's a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO- OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG story mode.
