Rated 10 out of 10
by MutantFang One of the best pokemon games!
One reason why I love this game is because of the story! You can also recruit legendary pokemon for exsample: Shaymin (Climb sky peak twice) Dialga (Go to hidden land after fighting primal dialga) and much more! I also like recruiting new members for the team!
Rated 10 out of 10 by SMan1128OnYT This Game is Amazing!
This is a wonderful game. It takes what it had in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Red Rescue Team/ Blue Rescue Team and also from Explorers of Time/Darkness, and just makes it better. This game has a lot of legendaries, good gameplay, amazing music, and graphics. This game makes you feel for the characters and it makes you want to play more. I love this game, and I will love it forever.
Rated 9 out of 10 by KingO Nice Job Nintendo!
Well i say that this game was pretty good over all because i love it how you can see stories about the other characters past life like bidoof's and the Guild Master because haven't you wondered how the Guild Master became an explorer in the first place?It is also cool how they added in extra cut scenes those are just cool! The story line is great like the previous games but this one has a few added things into it. Also it makes much more sense with the messages in bottles on the beach. This game is very good but there are a few flaws like the repetitive music i just hate it when video game creators do that it drives me nuts. Another thing is that there is not much to do after the after story what i mean by that is the story after the main story. This game is overall pretty good so i would give it a 9/10 nice job Nintendo you guys rock!
Rated 9 out of 10 by Revlis Best Spinoff For Pokemon
This game had so much to give that it makes me sad that it is so overlooked. The third one does have a few changes the I really enjoy. One is a new place that you can go to and get rid of certain items that you don't want and trade it for some more useful goods. Another change is that you can easily get the seven treasures that is barley noticed in the explorers of time and darkness games. Then they give you access to a jukebox that allows you to listen to all of the music made for the game. My favorite change is the side episodes where it shows you different stories like how Bidoof ended up into the guild and how wigglytuff became a guildmaster. What makes this so different to playing Pokemon is that there is so much personality given to these characters and to the story. This has been one of my favorite storylines in a game, and by far my most favorite storyline for Pokemon. Sure the graphics remained unchanged since the first pokemon dungeon games, but that does not make it a bad game. I would give this a thumbs up easily for its storyline and soundtrack alone. This game is something that you will enjoy no matter where and when you play it. If you are ready to explore, then get ready for a great game!
Rated 7 out of 10 by Legoyoda9 Mostly A copy
Pokemon Explorers of The Sky was fun for people who didn't play explorers of time or explorers of darkness. This is because it was the same story line and they just added a new end to the game. All in all i thought it was a fun game but being one of the people who played Explorers of time, it was not much fun for me to play. I think it was prety good but it could have been better. It was a cheat and it gave us less then we bargened for. It was fun don't tell me other wise and it is very complicated but I have seen the exact thing befor.Thank you for reading my long Review

Rated 10 out of 10 by Vulli Explorers of Sky ranks sky high!
From one Pokemon gamer to another, I have played every Pokemon game in the history of forever (No I don't mean I've used each and every copy of each and every game) and Sky tops them all! I love the extended storyline from Time and Darkness like the back stories for Guildmaster Wigglytuff and the loveable (though admittedly dopey) Bidoof. The main bonus for me is the addition of the Sky Jukebox, a lovely feature that will -once you unlock it- allow you to choose the music you listen to while dungeon crawling. How awsome is that? Another thing that was added that rocks is rescue in a bottle requests. Because how do those "Save me!" letters even get to the rescue board anyway? Did Peliper get them from the Pokemon in distress? If he did, why didn't he save them? The message in a bottle makes some sense at least. There is one thing that annoys the heck outta me though, that would be the confusingly named items. Eat an Oran berry, restore 100HP, but eat an Oren berry you lose 100HP. That is like, twelve flavors of irksome. There are quite a few items with really similar names in addition to the Oran-Oren berry thing but I don't want to list them all. Other than that this game is perfect! Thank you for reading my review, and good luck in the game! Remember, if you need help, thousands of teams are there to save you over the Wi-Fi!
Rated 7 out of 10 by SuperSDRocks It's Good, But Not Great
This is a good game. I like how you take a test to see what pokemon you are gonna be, but I don't like how you can't have a partner pokemon thats the same type as yours. In this game you get to go on missions and fight pokemon. Every time you go in a dungeon, the dungeon is completely different, which I think is cool. I find the fighting very confusing, but I'm pretty sure I will understand it later. I think the graphics are great, because I like RPG graphics. The sound is ok, but it could be better. The lasting appeal is moderate. I only played for about two days. Overall, I would recommend this game to pokemon lovers.
Rated 10 out of 10 by stardragon Honestly one of my favorite games.
I acknowledge that this is an old game, but I replayed it recently, so why not. I'll begin this review by saying that if you have fully played through Time or Darkness, don't get this. The storyline is identical, with features being added to Sky. However, if given the choice, Sky is the superior of the three versions. I'll be doing my reviews with the four criteria Gamestop has already- Gameplay, Graphics, Sound, and Lasting Appeal- but will be adding a section for storyline at the end. With that said, let's begin. The first is gameplay. It's most certainly repetitive, and the gameplay from dungeon to dungeon remains the same. However, that's not to say that it isn't fun! The controls are simple but rather customizable, being able to create linked moves, instant attacks with a combination of buttons, and assigning throwing items to a button combination. The concept remains the same. You crawl through each dungeon, fighting through enemies and collecting helpful items along the way, as well as money that can be exchanged for goods and services that are helpful later. It's definitely not good for a person who hates repetition, but if you're okay with the mechanics being the same each dungeon, that's great! The game can be a little difficult at times, though for the most part usually only bosses will give you trouble. There are more difficult dungeons you can enter, though. The dojo dungeons, plus one special dungeon, will make it so that you cannot bring any items in, and there are particularly harsh ones out there such as the Zero Isles, one of which takes all your items and sets your level to one before tossing you into a harsh 99 floor dungeon. There are challenges for everybody! The graphics... are really nothing special. The dungeons are all the same and have a sort of washed look about them, and a lot of the time areas don't have a particularly stand-out design. However, the sprites are charming and the animations are well done on them, as well as the expressions of some of the characters. Some of the scenery is nice, as well, such as Fogbound Lake or the top of Sky Peak, as well as the future ones, which are grim and capture the atmosphere perfectly. As for the sound... oh, I could talk for hours about the sound track! The dungeon themes are, by far, some of the most amazing. The atmosphere is captured in a gorgeous and evoking way that only music can do, executed perfectly and setting a perfect atmosphere for the worlds you will explore. They are memorable and some of the nicest and most atmospheric I have heard from almost any game. There are other themes that aren't part of dungeons, but they are just as good. The bouncy theme of Treasure Town sets a wonderful atmosphere, the laid-back tune of Spinda's cafe is suitably lax, listening to the crossing of the sea of time is phenomenal, the bittersweet music of a parting invokes emotion so perfectly. All in all, the music is one of the most amazing parts about the game, in my opinion. The ingame sounds, as opposed to the dungeon themes, are simple and not incredibly diverse. This isn't a bad thing at all! The sound effects are suiting and not obnoxious. It's always a rewarding sound to hear the clink of gathered money or funny to hear the flustered flapping of Chatot irritated once again. Now for lasting appeal. God, yes, this game has some of the most lasting appeal I have ever experienced. This game was the first to make me cry, to genuinely cry, at the ending. The story is beautifully crafted and surprisingly deep, the initial colorful and childlike appearance it took taking a sudden and dark turn, entering periods of great questioning, character development, revelations, the revealing of the grand scheme of time. It's extremely appealing, and this game is one I have never and will never forget. I am not embarrassed to say that I have replayed this game probably about ten times, possibly more, simply because I wanted to live that story again. As opposed to the main Pokemon series, almost every character you meet will have a unique and charming personality, and you will get emotionally invested into many of them, trust me. All of them are wonderfully crafted, and you'll find yourself picking favorites. Celebi, Team Charm, Chatot, Wigglytuff, Grovyle, Dusknoir... I could go on. This is also part of the reason I say Sky is the superior version. In Sky, you will unlock extra little side stories known as special missions, which will allow you to delve into the stories of other characters throughout the game. While I don't have much to say about the first and third, learning about Wigglytuff's past, seeing the escapades of Team Charm, and learning the fate of Grovyle and Dusknoir was extremely satisfying and just as incredible as the main storyline. One huge emphasis in this game is the development of the relationship between you and your partner pokemon, and you become extremely attached to them and other characters, which makes the ending that much more heartbreaking. Overall, the game is unforgettable. Now for my final segment, the storyline. Those of you who came from playing Red/Blue Rescue team already experienced something similar to what happened in this game. However, Sky takes a rather dark turn. Initially, the game takes the same sort of simple storyline that Red/Blue take. Sure, time is getting messed up, and you know that you'll have to fix it later, but to start it doesn't seem as bad. However, with the introduction of the Time Gears, things get interesting. Without spoiling way too much here, rather than catch the thief of the time gears, you get thrown into post-apocalyptic type locations, have an attempt of execution, learn about the strange workings of time and who's really pulling the strings, and find the lengths one will go for self preservation. It's a surprisingly complex and reflective story, and one that I am absolutely in love with. It is by far the best storyline of the pokemon series, and sits extremely high in terms of all time favorite stories. Basically, all in all, this game is extremely worth checking out!
