Summary: A good spinoff game. In fact, this may be my favorite of the spinoffs yet. The gameplay in this game is more similar to Fire Emblem than Pokémon. I was disappointed that Pokémon could learn only one attack, and there is only about 150 of the Pokémon in the games, all from Gens 1-5. If you like strategy RPG's and Pokémon, you will find this game enjoyable.
Summary: I love pokemon and that was the main reason I bought this. I love the different game play, I like being a warlord and conquering different kingdoms. I love the fact that the game does not just stick to one set of pokemon, but spans several different one. I love seeing ones that I am familiar with and seeing all kinds of new ones.
Summary: Nice change of pace for the pokemon games. I played this game for hours at a time trying to get the right combinations and making sure i stayed strong. My only issues was that the pokemon only ever know 1 attack.
Summary: I wanted the game because I love anything and everything pokemon and I am a fan of almost all of the spin off games. Pros: It's a fun game. I enjoyed the tactics and JRPG style of the game. I haven't really played a lot of JRPGs and it was a good way to get my feet wet. It was colorful and the stages were interesting. It was a refreshing change from the other main series games. I also got my order faster than expected so there's another bonus.
Summary: If you like Poke'mon and Strategy RPGs (e.g., Fire Emblem, Final Fantasy Tactics) then you will love this game. The chess-like environment will excite your inner tactician, and the inclusion of various Poke'mon and their moves is just enough customization to make the game feel fresh and exciting. I was a bit wary of this departure from Poke'mon's standard monster collection RPG style, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this game.
Summary: I love this game! It's Pokémon, it's Tactics, it's Japanese feudal period ambiented... (pause to puke rainbows) It doesn't have ALL the Pokémon, but then again 600+ options in such game would make it extremely long. Your main Pokémon will be eevee, have fun deciding how to raise him.
Summary: Ah, this game. It deserves its five stars and shall wear it proudly. I've spend all-nighters and all days on this game in hopes of beating it. It actually got me into the game Fire Emblem and will revere it in the same light. I recommend to both Pokemon and Fire Emblem fans.
