Pokemon Conquest is a fusion of different game styles: traditional pokemon RPGs, and turn-based field strategy.
With the positive side of Pokemon Conquest aside, there are also some things that Pokemon Conquest lacks. Probably the most prominent item on this list is that the plot -- the first one, anyways -- is not very engaging, with plot twists that are boring and, frankly, unoriginal. The characters are also just a bit flat. Still, I highly recommend Pokemon Conquest; it is an innovative, fun game.
