Oh my god, my eyes! Is this what I think it is? Is this really a Pokémon game? Where are the sprites? Where are the 2D animations? Wow!... Sorry about that. As you have probably guessed, the graphics are one of the best points of the game. But there are quite a few other good points as well. Like the music and the content and the... sorry I can't stop looking at it.

Anyway, the whole idea of the game is that you have arrived at an island to participate in a tournament, again. What is it with a game centred around battling other people to win something think that you always have to participate is a tournament? You battle your way through 10 coliseums with either a team of in game Pokémon or a team of Pokémon transferred from one of your 4th gen games. The coliseums are as follows:
Gateway: trade battle. Main Street: knock-out battle. Waterfall: team battle. Neon: fortune battle. Crystal: tournament battle. Sunny Park: little battle. Magma: league battle. Sunset: select battle. Courtyard: survival battle. Stargazer: master battle. There's also an online mode by the way. It's much like the 4th gen Pokémon games online capabilities but on the TV.

There is one problem with this game though, and that is that the storyline is awful. There's barely any of it at all really. But don't those graphics look good?

Conclusion: overall the game is a fun add on to the 4th gen games but without them it's not nearly as good.

Rating: 50 %

Goodbye for now, Harry
