first of let me start by saying that if you want a Pokémon game about catching Pokémon and traveling around doing battle this is not for you. this game was just oak for me, the main downfall that i thought this game had is that you don't really get to travel and explore, except for in the dungeons. then you have your base and the little Pokémon shopping center. when you go to a new place, it just goes there, you know when the screen turn black and you're there. the battling is pretty cool, but not great, i still like the old battling way better. i didn't get very far, but the story really didn't help stay in the game for too much. maybe it gets better, who knows? but im done with it, hopefully Pokémon diamond or whatever is a lot better.
When i rented this game i was expecting another basic Pokémon game. I was disappointed. it was not the battles ii was used to. the talking was enjoying. And it was overall just not the Pokémon i expected.
