I really wanted to get into this game and really did put in a number of hours into it. Unfortunately, I found the game to be too much like the others and quickly became bored with it after a few hours. If you enjoy the same old Pokemon style of catching all the creatures, fighting them, leveling them and battling with friends then be my guest and enjoy this game; if you are looking for something new then go elsewhere. Still, I will clap for the added online fighting and trading abilities--those being the only things setting this game apart from the others.
If you have never played a Pokemon game before then you owe yourself a shot at playing this one because it is the best, but if you are looking for something new and fresh in the Pokemon series then look elsewhere because it sticks to its tried and true money making formula.
