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.
Summary: It's a fun enough strategy game, as the other reviewers have said. But it could have been so much better! The game suffers from an overload of mechanics. Here's what I ignored on my play-through... - Gold. It doesn't matter because nothing of importance costs any gold. - Items.
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.
Summary: My son loves Pokemon!! We ended up not receiving this game through Amazon because of shipping snafu so we bought from a local store. It definitely held his attention for several days but he finished it way too fast in my opinion.
Summary: if you're a fan of pokemon and the games you'll be pleasantly surprised with this spinoff. It's a good yet awkward spin off you never saw coming. It's a neat addition to the series which has you do these turn based battles on game board like stages.
Summary: Though the game had great gameplay, it was made a bit repetitive after the dozens of hours long post-game missions that stand between the player and the more interesting final missions. If you are a fan of pokemon and strategy games then this is a game worth buying.
