Gyrocope: aim
A: shoot

This game is not really a game but an accessory. You don't need it to complete the main series game but you want it. And this is because of three exclusive Pokémon on the game and they are: Tornadus, Thundurus and Landorus. Now you could trade these up from Black and White but these ones are different forms with added power and great abilities. 

So, you buy the 'game' for them and are treated with some pink and black clouds instead of Pokémon and a Professor who wants to study your dreams. So far, so no-Pokémon. And then the game begins.

You aim with your 3DS's gyroscopes and fire lasers with A. These lasers will destroy the clouds and either release 'dream orbs' or Pokémon/ items. However, you can't see what the item/Pokémon is until you capture it, so you have to shoot with A and get the item/Pokémon. That's it.

After you have collected some dream orbs you can upgrade your Dream capturing device and keep playing. Once you have so many you can catch Tornadus, Thundurus and Landorus then you have completed the game. You can then transfer the Pokémon and items over to your Black and White 2 games.

You can also put in the game cartridges of Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Heartgold and Soulsilver to get other legendries

The clouds take around 70 minutes (if you have the full amount of clouds) to load and won't hold your attention for too long but for two pounds it is worth it slightly.

Overall: this is an add-on not a game, so don't treat it as one. How could you Nintendo.
