I've played every pokemon game since Pokemon Blue, and was unsure how I would react to the new generation of Pokemon. the truth is, I couldn't be happier. The story is fresh, the pokemon are unique, and the landscape is absolutely beautiful. The multiplayer aspect works amazingly well, you can trade and battle with other people locally or through wifi. Overall this game is stunning and extremely well-made.
When I first got this game I was like is this just like heartgold man was I wrong this game is a lot better with pokemon that are better and cooler looking(except for jigglypuff) kidding but if you dont have the game I would get it because it is the beggining of a new era of pokemon.
