I rented this game asap and when I finally got it and tried it i couldn't stop playing. Its graphics are awesome you can migrate Pokémon from any of the previous one like leaf green,fire red, emerald, ruby, or sapphire. There are hundreds of new Pokémon to obtain and many new rares. the new map is huge and takes a while to get all non-contest need areas. I now own Dimond and my friend owns pearl so we trade back and forth all the time to get all the Pokémon we need. If you get one of the Pokémon dimond or pearl becarful try to get it on a weekend. P.S. try to get your friend to get one of the two and you get the other so you can complete the pokedex. P.S.S. watch for the next new Pokémon game out Pokémon platinum

I loved the game play, the graphics,the new legendaries, but sometimes I think that Nintendo is running out of ideas for Pokemon. they totally need better starters in my mind, though every other aspect of the game is fine,like the smoother battle system. overall it has some good Pokemon, (like the new legendaries) but others are lame. (like the Bidoof) I still strongly suggest that you play this game,so later you can have your favorite Pokemon from Emerald or leaf green and fire red.
