Product Details:

XD centers on Dark Pokemon, Pokemon who've had their hearts sealed away and now use Dark Skills to attack you and your Pokemon friends. You play as a nameless main character who adventures with his little sister, Mana. Your quest is to free the Dark Pokemon from their misguided trainers and open their hearts back up. To do this, you'll make use of an eye piece called the "Aura Searcher," which identifies Dark Pokemon by their characteristic purple glow, and your Snatch Machine, which plucks the Dark Pokemon from battle. XD features a full RPG-style quest, taking you to various towns and locations. You'll meet a number of human characters on your travels. Nintendo seems to be preparing a more fleshed out quest this time around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Disc Did Not Play The game itself is really good. I haven't played it for years. However, I ordered this game (pre-owned) from Gamestop, and though the disc had no, if not undetectable, scratches, thetc disc would not play on neither the Wii or Gamecube. Yikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Spinoff of a Great Franchise The usual Pokémon games are well known as collect badges and beat the league. This game offers a unique play style away from the originals. The concept of shadow Pokémon and giving a friendship a larger reason to exist is exquisitely well done. Pokémon took a chance with this franchise in colosseum and perfected in this game. 10/10

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good goal Re-up play great game for casual tuners and better example of abbreviated pokemon game. Much needed closure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Game in Pokemon History Where do I start? To this day I believe this is the greatest Pokemon game ever made. This had a more developed story line, had great concepts, more challenging than the mainstream Pokemon games, every main character is rememberable (I can still hear Miror B's music play through my mind with his dancing Ludicolo), and we got away with stealing ("snagging") Pokemon from others! Some years ago I managed to lose my copy of this game and I still greev(ile) the loss ever since. If someone gave me a copy of this game then I would marry that person. I treasure the sweet times I had playing it. I wish that it could be remade to fit the newer generations of Pokemon so that way it could be even more exciting. I doubt that day will come but I am just happy that this game existed in the first place :')

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best on a home console I got this game in 2005 and I still play it when it's 2014 now. The game is very good for as GameCube game and it's cheap. With all of the Pokemon to collect and to battle against this is a great Pokemon game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MY FAVORITE POKEMON SPIN OFF Pokemon XD: gale of darkness is one of the finest pokemon products to date. The story starts with a ship delivering goods when all of a sudden a dark form of lugia appears and sinks the ship. Shortly after, you take control of the main character Michael. You are prompted to get your sister Jovi from a scientists house and bring her back. Honestly, Jovi is probably my least favorite companion. she doesn't follow you around everywhere which is good, but when she is with you, she becomes one of those annoying Zelda like partners you would be far better off with. But when you return however, disaster strikes and the professor (known as professor krane) gets kidnapped and you must find him. You are then given a snag machine. This device allows you to identify and capture shadow pokemon so you can purify them. This is a mechanic that I really wish could come back. so your adventure is born, you must go see professor Krane and purify as many shadow pokemon you can find. This is how I wanted Battle revolution to be. a free roaming game where it feels like the handheld but being different in many ways. this is a 3rd gen game so many pokemon from the handhelds are here from sharpedo and camerupt to groudan and kyogre. even some older pokemon join the group. this is like the handheld in may ways. building a team, buying and finding items, confronting the evil team and eventually taking on the boss. cipher is back and they are creating many shadow pokemon. so overall this is one of the most unique pokemon games ever and it;s a must if you haven't played yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE MOST EPIC POKEMON STORY!!!!!!!! The description is a little wrong. You have a sister named JOVI, and your mission is to defeat the re operational cipher and their plans of sealing away pokemon's hearts with your shadow pokemon identifying device called the SNAG machine. Anyway this game is awesome! It has a different story than the normal games. You are in the Ore region in between Johto and Kanto. It has great quality graphics. You can catch a huge verity of pokemon and train them very easily. Just so you know the XD in Pokemon XD is for XD001 wich is what their legendary shadow pokemon is called XD001 A.K.A. SHADOW LUGIA. This is a intense game but awesome for everyone! ENJOY!!!!!!!! :D XD

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Honest opinion from a frequent player of Pokemon At the time this beast came out people were going crazy for this thing. It was the game that complimented the ruby and sapphire to trade and battle on gamecube. I had never caught a more well put together graphic sight on gamecube from any other game except maybe 'battalion wars' & 'Tiger Woods'. The soundtrack was catchy but went out after awhile, the voices of the pokemon were not all that either. So to get around that i would just play some of my own personal music in the background to keep me occupied. I will say that it is the BEST gameplay i have ever played in any Pokemon game. The overall shadow pokemon experience can not be found in any other game; as well as a shadow lugia :[ yes you can trade shadow lugia that you catch BUT you must purify him first. Of all the pokemon games this one had the "secret society" feel to it, and it had a kick of dark in it that lives up to its title. Last but not least i will say that this game is so well put together that i have played it 3x and i am looking forward to playing it again. Take care
