Let go ahead and face it, Pokemon has been one of the few big name franchises that just keeps all of us waiting for their next release, much like Final Fantasy. It always has something new in every game, whether it be simple, small, big, or just interesting. This game is no different.
Though belonging to the Gen IV, they have mopped the floor with Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. Everything has a nice rendition to it. Grass is no longer '2D' and is now 3D, almost looking like small shrubs. The graphics are smooth, the soundtracks of the original Jhoto reign has be reformed with some new things, also very nice. They have even brought back what we, or at least I, have always liked: The Pokemon following you like Pikachu in Yellow Version! Any pokemon you have in the first slot of your party, no matter if its an Onyx or a Pichu, will follow behind you. You can talk to it and it will yawn or do something, and it can even pick things up like the small Pokemon could in Heartome City in D and P.
The Storylines incorperating Ho-Oh and Lugia are just lovely, and I think the only thing bad about this new game is that you cannot capture Suicune[SP?], you have to trade it. Other than that, this game is worth the buy and the cherish. The pokemon walker is a lovely addition as well. You can capture pokemon in it as you walk and get items as well. The game is amazing and well worth as many hours as you can pour into it. And not to be as long winded as I already am, but...WOW, Its just pretty.
