The new features in this game are more than welcome. They improved nicely upon Diamond and Pearl.

Brilliant game. I cannot wait for Heart Gold and Soul Silver.

For a blatant rip off of diamonf and Pearl this is selling quite nicely.

Hopefully after this they will bring the series into full 3D

And not like stadium of colusium

Games where you can go into a field and catch pokemon and none of that dark pokemon s%$t

PLease Nintendo

If we think of the "remakes" like Crystal or Emerald Platinum is not doung bad, it can even outsell them, and become the best seling pokemon's remake game ( i'm not counting yellow, that was a first game in EU).

sadly there's not much to do after the elite 4. i'm just doing some battles every day, slowly getting to level 100.

i honestly think the next pokemon game should be themed- like in space, or a western. that would really change it up, and it'd be sick

Isn't this is like a clone of any other GB/DS pokemon game? Still selling like crazy.

I LOVE it!! I played through diamond. I love how they changed the story a little. The Distortion world is badass. And if you havn't played any of these yet. The pokemon game is more evened out. Finally fun using different kinds of pokemon and not having them suck. I remember the first pokemon games where you can beat the Elite Four and the whole game with just 1 pokemon. NOT ANYMORE. You need teamwork. Feels good.
