Summary: This game is a whole lot better than everyone gives it credit for. There is a good bit to do and it's awesome for about a week. There is literally no replay value once you unlock all the channels, but it is still a great game.
Summary: Here's the thing, when people play a lot of new versions of games, they expect the older ones to be just like it, before this one, only 7 pokemon games had been released, Red, Blue, Yellow, Silver, Gold, Crystal, and Hey You Pikachu. This game had the best graphics on the console for its time. The concept was new, a completely real-time based game, furthermore, this game was based for CHILDREN not 20 year old "diehard" Pokemon fans.
