Product Description Review

Pokémon Colosseum, like the Pokémon Stadium games that begat it, is primarily a way of seeing the Pokémon you've caught in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire in full 3-D on your GameCube. By connecting a Game Boy Advance to your GameCube (link cable required) you can upload all your data from the portable games so that it appears on your GameCube and on the big screen. This means you can examine your Pokédex of over 200 Pokémon in full 3D, swap and trade items and Pokémon, view extensive tutorials, set out your hidden base, use e-cards and, most importantly, battle.

Pokémon Colosseum features a range of battlegrounds, ranging from out in the middle of Petalburg Woods to within a giant stadium with thousands of onlookers. You choose to fight the battles either against the computer, a friend or in a team battle with four people, but whatever you decide suddenly your Pokémon and all their amazing moves will be in super realistic 3-D-–they look even better than they do in the cartoon. Using either the GBA or the normal GameCube controller makes the battles really come alive as you fight for honour or one of the many unlockable secrets.

The only problem with Pokémon Colosseum is that it's out so long after Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, but if you can wait that long this an absolute must-have for any Pokéfan. --David Jenkins

Manufacturer's Description

In Pokémon Colosseum players can upload their Pokémon from Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire and battle them with friends in highly rendered dazzling 3-D graphics. There are many arenas to choose from, making each battle unlike the last. Players can enter their Pokémon into a tournament or battle it out in 4-player multi-battles. Join with a friend to combine strength in new two-on-two battles, demonstrating prowess as a team. The true Pokémon masters can test their skill by setting limits on Pokémon levels and types; the playing field is level but the competition is fierce.

4.0 out of 5 stars A step forward in the series 2 Dec. 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
People will disagree with me here but i speak not from a Pokemon game perspective.
Pokemon Colosseum is a fresh installment to what has become a sterile series. The typical, collect gym badges and battle the elite four trope has been completely pushed aside in favor of a new plot ans setting. Whilst the games plot isn't anything special, the setting really does the game justice.

Explaining why Pokemon Colosseum is a great game is no easy feat because from a Pokemon fans perspective it is a step down. There aren't as many Pokemon available this time round and being a console title, there isn't any interactivity with other players. These problems shouldn't trouble those who prefer to play alone, but those who do will probably ignore this game which is understandable. However Pokemon Colosseum makes up for this with it's new features, the ability to "snag" shadow Pokemon from other trainers is interesting and it makes battles feel more intense, especially since battles in Pokemon Colosseum are all double battles. The game play is basically the same as battles in other Pokemon games but with a few changes, the run option has been replaced by a call option which you use to wake up your Pokemon and snap them out of hyper mode.

The presentation of this game is fantastic, though it is a shame that they reused the same models from Pokemon Stadium 2, they still look great, the new models also look great. The best part of the game is the art design.

5.0 out of 5 stars A refreshing change to Pokémon! 28 Aug. 2012
By Gilbert
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ahh, Pokémon Colosseum, the very first Gamecube game I ever had, and what a game it is! As a youngster, I found myself almost addicted to the Pokémon series and had bought all of the games, and when I found out that Pokémon Colosseum was being released on Gamecube I found myself saving up just to buy it, and I was not disappointed!

At first, I thought that the game was going to be like all of the others, but I was happily surprised when I found out that the main focus of the game is to steal Pokémon from other trainers and then purify their hearts so that I could use them on my other games and I always had a warm glow when I'd purified another Pokémon through bonding with it.

The story:

The story of Colosseum is one that I will never forget, as it remains one of my favourites to date with it's complete twist on the innocence of the other games by including characters like Thugs as battle-able foes and the sense that I was defeating Thugs made me feel like a hero! You start off with Espeon and Umbreon as your two companions and Pokémon oddly starting at levels 25 and 26, with the levels of the in-game Pokémon being that and higher which was an odd thing to begin with, but it soon became clear that everyone had these starting levels, making it ok. You play as an ex-Team Snagem member who has gone against their evil ways and with the help of a female companion, who can sense 'Shadow Pokémon', you aim to re-capture all of the 'Shadow Pokémon' to free them of their closed hearts. With villainous foes and huge afros to fight along the way, you will love this game if you are a fan of Pokémon, or just enjoy a good plot twist every now and then.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just an upgraded version of pokemon stadium! 13 Feb. 2004
By Ruth Ludlam VINE VOICE
NB: Nintendo will be releasing a bonus disk with the limited edition version (I don't think it is this version!!) which has a BONUS POKEMON on it! That you can download into your Ruby or Sapphire game through the Gamecube to GBA link cable! It is called Jirachi, and is steel/psychic. It is ONLY available on pre-order, so make sure you pre-order the right version if you're getting it from Amazon.
This game has a lot more than Stadium had - now there's a huge RPG mode that actually makes up most of the game where you go around fighting other trainers to steal their pokemon. Just what I've always wanted to do! You start out with two quite high level pokemon, and rarely meet anything lower than a level 20. You also don't get to catch any wild pokemon, and you can only steal someone else's pokemon if it is a dark one. And then they will only level up once you heal them at a shrine and they only learn one move, dark rush, which can damage your pokemon. But it is really different from how the game has been before. There's no wandering around in the grass because there are no wild pokemon - you just have to choose your next city from the overhead map. Your aim is to defeat Team Dark and Team Snatch and you always fight in two on two formation, like you can do in Ruby and Sapphire.
Apart from that, there are lots of nice extras as well as Colosseum Mode, which is pretty much just like Stadium but with nicer graphics. And mini-games and decorating your Secret Base, too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Game, Bad Multiplayer 23 May 2004
I simply loved the first pokemon Stadium, and never played its sequal but this is truly the best pokemon game out there. The multiplayer is lost, in my opinion, As everybody needs to own a GBA and a copy of Ruby or Saphire. Although the multiplayer is gone the single player is likely to keep you busy for hours on end. Were not talking 5-6 overall, were talking times that by 10. Some people even played for 76 hours. Thats how good this game is. So dont buy it, like i did, for the multiplayer with friends unless you all have Ruby or Saphire. Buy it for the single player. I write this review as i hope that people wont find it a dissapointment when they realise the multiplayer value has gone. As for the graphics, they are supurb. Some of the best that have ever decided to fall onto the gamecube. Plus its exclusive to the gamecube. More and More games are being lost to better consoles like the Xbox and PS2, but this gives you a reason to pull out your gamecube and get some good quality fun.
