    Well, to start off my review this game is great. The graphics are good. Gameplay is excellent, because there is lots and lots of different places to visit, and you can battle other Pokemon. It is not like the GBA games f... Read Full Review

    ehhh

    To start off with, this game is pretty fun. Once you get pas its quirks, you’ll find that it is a fairly enjoyable game. The sound is pretty pathetic, however, so it might be best to just turn off the sound and turn on a... Read Full Review

    ...honestly, I was expecting a great transition of the 2D Pokemon games, however, something went wrong...
