Pokemon Y First Impressions

Pokemon Y - Nintendo 3DS



The Game
I think its important to note that I haven't played a Pokemon game in years.  Its so bad that I can't even remember the name of the game I just know it was on Game Boy Advance.  Saying that, I am having a lot of fun with this game.  The story seems to be very simple which isn't a bad thing.  The gameplay is turn-based RPG style, like most Pokemon titles.  GameFreak has made a lot of improvements to the titles over the years and this one is no exception. You don't have to play with the 3D on and it still plays and looks great.  I usually play with the 3D on during battles as I like the effect.  The Kalos region is a big region and the game picks up pretty quickly and is paced very well.  The story I have heard is anywhere between 30 - 40 hours, I cannot confirm this as I have not beat the game yet.  There are a lot of extra features in this game as well as mini games. Just like in Kingdom Hearts 3D, you can play with your Pokemon outside of the story to strengthen your bond with your team. The online component of this game is actually pretty strong, as soon as you turn the Internet on in game you will see a lot of people from all over the world on the touchscreen wanting to trade and do other various things.  For the moment I do not turn it on as I am trying to get a good team built and find some extra Pokemon to trade.  Oh before I forget there is a battle at the beginning of the game where you battle a professor and when you beat him you get to pick from the original starter set of Pokemon from the first game.  I thought that was pretty cool. Basically you get two starter sets which is awesome in my opinion.  Okay that's enough from me, I gotta get back to playing.


*I may not review this game as I want to take my time with it and not rush through it, saying that if you are a fan of Pokemon this is a no brainer get the game. If you are unsure check youtube as there are a lot of people doing playthroughs.*
