Great. Could have had more Pokémon.
This was a great game, lacking in how long it takes to beat the rpg mode. Although, I ,myself, used walkthroughs. The amount of Pokémon in the Orre Region (a mixture of Johto, Hoenn, and about 5 Kanto) is poor. You can capture, only, 48 Pokémon. You start off with Umbreon(level 27) and a Espeon(level 25). That adds 2, which makes 50. If you have the bonus disk, you receive the Wish Maker Pokémon, Jirachi, if you can link with Pokémon Sapphire and Ruby Version. That makes 51, if you have the bonus disk, and Pokémon Sapphire and Ruby Version. If you don't, it is still 50. But you can obtain a level 70 Ho-Oh, IF, you catch and purify all 48 Shadow Pokémon (Pokémon that have had their heart doors shut, and are fighting machines)and beat Mt. Battle on Battle Mode. Which makes 51 or 52. You can trade Pokémon with Versions Sapphire, Ruby, Emerald, Fire Red, and Leaf Green.( after you beat part 1 of the rpg mode) The action(well, PokéAction)is epic. Somethings you won't see coming. I'm not gonna be a spoiler, but the mayor(Es Cade)is truly one example. Another bad thing is, the whole rpg mode is a double battle face-off.(a battle type fight, in which 2 Pokémon fight at a time) You can single battle( a battle type of Pokémon, 1on 1) but, that is in battle mode. You can catch a Raikou, Suicune, and Entei. You can also obtain a Ho-Oh. All-in-all this is the type of game: you get, you loose the memory card, sell the game, years later you find the memory card, and ask your mom to go back to Gamestop to get it again. That was exactly my scenario. Oh I forgot to tell you about your partner that assists you on your quest. Well you'll just have to buy the game and see who it is!
Best 3D pokemon game yet
This game is awesome. It's just like the pokemon games you play on the ds/gba, but it's in 3D. It has a complete story line and allows you to actually travel around instead of just starting a battle like in pokemon battle revolution. The great part about it is that if you get a gba game link cable and connect it with the game cube you can transfer pokemon back and forth. So if you're having trouble collecting them all you can get them from the game! They actually let you capture the pokemon in this game. The great part is that most are the original pokemon from jhoto and khanto so after you trade them into your gba, place the game into your ds and transfer pokemon like Raikou, Suicune, Entei, Ho-oh, and maybe Celebi and Jirachi (if you cheat). Overall I personally liked the game. The graphics are fine for being a game cube game. The gameplay is like pokemon on the gba(sort of well not really) but in 3D. The controls are decent. The length depends on if you train or not. It's part of my top 25 games for game cube.
Different, but Great
If you're a fan of Pokémon you're going to love this story. Even though the gameplay is somewhat different, it still the same old Pokémon you'd expect.
I love this game, it's revolutionary and a must play for RPG fans.
Its a pokemon game....kind of
Pokemon colloseum puzzles me I mean nintendo seemed determined to make this game kinda of a dissapointment I mean I was expecting a big open world full of pokemon and I got 50 shadow pokemon I mean really what?. though despite that the shadow pokemon thing worked pretty well. after a while I would find myself lost in the game training and purifying my pokemon searching for trainers who had shadow pokemon taking in the various sights and locations but I was just annoyed by the excuses "orre is a region with no wild pokemon" and yet almost everybody has a pokemon and my personal favorite oh I'm sorry we dont sell poke balls because of exuse 1 so go into the middle of the dessert and ask a dude who runs a abandoned train for them. I mean I feel like if they had taken away the fact that it has pokemon it would be like any obscure Japanise game seriously it would pretty much be the tale of a mute animal rights activist and his annoying friend traveling around encountering various animals and freeing them from their opressive owners so pretty much the japanise equivalant of a episode of animal rescue. but its fun nothing but ignore the story and just enjoy the game
this game is really cool. if you complaind about not beinng able to steal pokemon in the gba games, this game is perfect for you.
A very fun game for any RPG gamers
This is the very first Pokemon 3D RPG game. It was released for the Nintendo Gamecube. Let me first start off that this game is for anyone who loves Pokemon. Its different from the main series games just like the Mystery Dungeon, and Rangers series. It first starts off with a character (You) blowing up the bad evil team. You start off with two amazing pokemons being Espeon and Umbreon. Throughout the game instead of capturing pokemon in the wild, you must capture your enemies pokemon if you want to complete the game 100%. Its awesome and different from the regular Pokemon games. It also has one of the best main character designs in the whole Pokemon series. Anyways this game is great and the only real problem is that its very battle heavy and might take a while to finish the whole game. Otherwise this is a great game that gets overlooked. I think if you want something new, go ahead for this game its great!(:
Who will save the Pokemon?
This is a nice addition to the usual "Gotta Catch Em' All" pokemon game and gives you some much needed purpose.Pokemon have been sighted glowing with black aura and have darkness covering their hearts.Who is doing this and why?You have to get to the bottom of this.It is very fun and you can even send the Pokemon you save to your GameBoy pokemon games(Sapphire/Ruby/Emearald & LeafGreen/FireRed) which is a nice addition.However the constant battling can be so annoying and repetetive.
Simple game that Pokemon fans can enjoy.
As far as I know this is the only pokemon game where your hero can go on a rogue-like arch type. Blowing up bases and backstabbing evil syndicates while trying to rescue a whole bunch of pokemon from that same syndicate's evil plans. It was one of those descent 5th-gen games. I give it at least 9/10 overall. A little less of a 10 on graphics and replay value, oh and a GBA and a GBA cable may come in handy if you wanted to transfer your precious friends from the cube to your main handheld games.
This game is one of the best pokemon games I've ever played. In this awesome game you can battle ciphers (bad guys) who are trying to make pokemon into shadow pokemon. You can catch,battle,and raise pokemon. At the end you can battle the boss of the cipher squad which is the mayor of Phenac City (Who is secretly a bad guy) So much to do, amazing game.
Even Better Than Gale of Darkness
This game really addicting. The storyline is great overal and the characters look pretty good.This game is good for anybody who loves RPGs.
