Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

You might not see the supporting merchandise so much nowadays but Pokemon is still the most successful games franchise in history. Diamond and Pearl sold 5 million copies in Japan in under three months and 1 million in America in just one month, breaking all records for the year and the series. At first sight though this looks disappointingly similar to the existing games, with only a subtle 3D effect for the game world and largely static 2D battles. However the gameplay has undergone a complete overhaul, adding numerous new features and reintroducing others from Gold/Silver/Crystal, that had previously been removed.

The basics are still the same though, as you venture out into the world (called Sinnoh this time) in an attempt to catalogue each and every pokemon and battle the evil Team Galactic. Catching and training a pokemon for combat also works the same as before, although beauty and talent contests have been greatly expanded for those that prefer as little violence as possible. The game includes a day and night cycle, which severely impacts the appearance of pokemon, and you are given a new gadget called a poketch which starts as a simple watch but can be upgraded to everything from a scanner to a map. Secret bases are back and considerably more sophisticated than before but the most important new feature by far is the online mode. You can now trade, chat and battle with fans from around the world – proving that progress is not always just a case of better graphics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pokémon does it. Again. 8 May 2007
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Pokémon fans will not be let down by this mindblowing installment in the pokemon series.

Some of the new features of this game include:

The Pokétch, a watch which tells the time, has a calculator built in, and gets new applications as your journey continues, e.g. a function which enables you to see whether your pokemon love you and what level your pokemon at the day-care centre are,

The reappearance of real-time with day and night cycles.

Many new minigames including making 'Poffin' (which can be fed to pokemon to improve their contest capabilities and raise their affection for you), a Pokemon contest with three different stages: dressing your pokemon up, making it dance for survival in Donky Konga style (?) and the old judge-based move contest.

Nice Animal Crossing-esque graphics - the eight different gyms posses the best 3-D visuals,

14 legendary pokemon, making your journey only begin when you defeat the elite four,

a much improved bicycle,

and the not-so-amazing but satisfying ability to run in buildings!

There is a lot more than this, and even though most things are just embellishments of the previous games, it is by far the most addictive. Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars pokelumptious 28 Sep 2007
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am eight years old.

This is a great game for children.

You need to chose what pokimon you want out of fire type, water type and grass type, I chose fire. You can go to different towns in the sihona region learning new moves and gaining new items.

It is my favourite game.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST GAME EVER!!! 25 Jan 2009
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I love this game! Although this is my first pokemon game, I've had other DS games before, like Zelda, Nintendogs, and Mariokart. This game is HUGEEEEEEEEEEE. There is so much to do. Just when you think the game is over, there is something else to do. I thought after obtaining all 8 gym badges and beating the Elite 4 plus the Champion (Cynthia), the game was over. I then discovered that you could catch Heatron, and also start to build up your Pokedex. I've managed to catch Palkia, Uxie and Azelf, but is still trying to catch Mesprit, who keeps running away. I've managed to get her level down to yellow, and can't wait to catch her eventually. In the meantime, I can battle in the Battle zone and rechallenge the Elite 4 as often as I want, to level-up my Pokemons and earn more money. I've also managed to eventually evolve Riolu into the Great Lucario.
You can challenge a friend and I understand that you can also go online to trade or challenge other people, but I've not done that yet.
All I can say, is BUY this game. It's more than FANTASTIC!!!

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been playing the Japanese version of this since it came out last Autumn (and have now been playing the US one since mid April)- so far having clocked up about 1000 hours of gameplay. Compared to previous games in the series this is leagues ahead. Why? Wi-fi is why. Now you can complete your pokedex, trade with millions of people around the world and also battle them.
By comparision to the last generation the graphics and sound are improved, the dual screen set up makes the gameplay far better, and the game mechanics are vastly improved, with a clear division between normal and special attacks, which makes for much more complex and clever gameplay.
The new pokemon are nice enough, and the story is, as expected, virtually identical to all previous incarnations. It should take about 30 to 40 hours of gameplay on average to get through the main story, but then things really take off, and depending on how hooked and serious you are, there are literally hundreds of hours of top entertainment to be milked from this game, making it absolutely 10/10 in vfm.
If you have enjoyed previous games, do not let the appalling Ranger or Mystery Dungeon diversions make you think pokemon is dead. This is the real deal and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best pokemon game yet... 3 May 2007
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've had the pleasure of playing every pokemon game to date; and now i recently bought pokemon diamond, american import from amazon marketplace. It is leagues ahead of the rest; the stylus does indeed make for excellent gamin g - although i will mark down on the fact it isn't used everywhere; and to be honest, I was a little disappointed that it coudn't be used, like i've sene in games such as hotel dusk, to move around.

Obviously this is nothing, its pitter patter - the WiFi for trading and battling is brilliant. it takes it to th enext level; its like going to those rare local pokemon events but daily.

WARNING: I have not had the benefit of attempting this yet; but I have read in a few places that regions of games DO matter when you attempt to back-trade from GBA versions - hopefully this isn't the case, but if you're considering buying american import, maybe something to bare in mind and research

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, Great, Great !!! 9 Mar 2008
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have always been a fan of Pokemon and have had them on previous consoles so obviously wanted it on the ds.
It is slighty different to red, blue and yellow for the gameboy but not by alot and its great.

There is more gameplay, bigger towns, more people to talk and battle with, new pokemon, new challenges, great graphics.

You can enter contests for cool, beauty, cute, smart and tough where you dance, dress up your pokemon and act, the better you are the more the audience will love you and more points you gets.

I think Pokemon Diamond and Pearl are a lot better then the originals and thoroughly enjoy playing them as its a bit harder and you need to think a little bit more and is not so predictable which is what makes this game so good.

If you love Pokemon games your absolutely love Diamond

If you have never played Pokemon games before this is a great game to begin with, containing puzzles, fighting and catching the cutest and toughest Pokemon.

Thumbs all around !!!
