    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: all new pokemon and region, animations, actual story
    Cons: your Pokemon STILL look like a big blur during battle.. really not much

    Summary: What once was thought of as a fad amongst the world and targeted toward younger gamers, Pokemon has really taken the world by storm.  The Pokemania phase has come and gone, but the series itself is still alive and well across multiple platforms like ... read more

    Pros: Interesting Environments to Explore, Many Streamlined Aspects From Past Games, Fun Gameplay
    Cons: Dull Graphics and Sound, Not as Big an 'Evolution' as I Hoped For

    Summary: It's funny to look back and consider that Pokemon was once considered a fad. What was one of the biggest video game phenomenons out of the gate has devolved to being merely the most popular Japanese role playing game series in the world. I say merely, ... read more

    Pros: Look at main text field for the pro and con list.
    Cons: Look at main text field for the pro and con list.

    Summary: I purchased Pokemon Black on it's release date. Honestly, it was very fun. I am seeing a lot of harsh reviews and wondering how people think that, but it really depends on how into Pokemon you are. For a total Pokemon geek, you will notice that some ... read more

    Pros: Elite four is tougher, Story is more involved, Smooth gameplay, Extremely fun
    Cons: Ugly, unimaginative new pokemon, Forgettable music, Boring towns/cities, Slight graphical errors

    Pros: Has all of the solid fundamentals of every other Pokemon game but with a facelift.
    Cons: Didn't I play this same game thirteen years ago?

    Summary: It was 1998 when I had my first experience with Pokemon.  It was that year that I got one of the original two Pokemon games, Pokemon Red.  I enjoyed the game well enough, the monster collecting and battling game were quite addicting and ... read more

    *If you're new to-Pokemon, Black's a good place to start,
    Cons: *Gameplay needs to change at least a bit,
    *Not much end game content,

    Summary: Pokemon Black is set in the Unova Region, where the number of pokemon has increased from 493, to 649. The gameplay hasn't changed much since the first one came out, but the story and strategy involved alone are enough to make anyone come back for more. ... read more
