I love pokemon and I could not wait for this game, and it was pretty awesome to play. It has a great balance of new and old pokemon, great cell shading, and lots to do. I'd love to go into everything, but I think it's best to find out how awesome it is for yourself. Just get it, especially if you're a pokemon fan, you'll be glad you did.
All the pokemon games are great and this ones no exception. Plus I am a HUGE DARK TYPE user I just love them and this pokemon game has alot of them plus one I never seen before. The towns and areas to explore are also huge. overall I give it a 10 out of a 10. A absolute must buy for any pokemon lover such as my self :]
