If you like the Pokémon Pearl, Yellow, Silver, Crystal, whatever games, I definitely recommend you STAY AWAY FROM THIS ONE.
I was sort of hopeful that this game would utilize the same battle system as the other GB games but this is a weak turn-based game with much dialogue and even more "I don't care what you little Pokémon have to say" feelings.
I didn't get very far and thus my opinion doesn't reach very far into the game but I did to some mountain and I instantly was slaughtered. Kind of weird seeing as the damage from the first battles were about 1 to 2 HP and the second you jump into some mountain you take 17 HP and you're dead in two hits.
I really don't have the patience and unless your 8 year old kid wants this game for some unknown reason, don't pick it up. It's not nearly as fun as playing the regular games.
This isn't like any other Pokemon game. This is more like Final Fantasy. There are too many things to do. Its not just walk and battle to reach ur goal. They've included way too much clicking and options. This makes it more confusing as well. I wouldn't recommend this game to an enemy. It's a lot better when u walk and just battle and have the four options. In this u use one move in battle and can select which move that before getting into battle. I consider that to be quite inconvient when u walk into a battle unexpectedly, u don't pick ur main character they do....I was a weak Meowth. That definetly didn't help the games entertainment level... u do get to choose ur partner tho, not like it helps make the game more etnertaining....I say pass dun even rent this one, looks good on the cover but the mysteries need to stay in time and in the darkness.
