The whole Pokemon craze started all the way back in 1995. Back when a slice of pizza cost you a buck 25. Pokemon was HUGE! Gameboy games. A still strong anime series. Trading cards. Hell, even plushes. The idea of needing to “catch them all” was tattooed into our heads. And we loved it.

Now, a new Pokemon game has been released. And Nintendo DS owners are welcoming the game with open arms. I have only been playing the game for 2 days, and I have to say that I am very impressed by the quality of the game. The graphics have received a 3D upgrade while still keeping it’s traditional “2D” look. The Pokemon are colorful and animated very well. The battles, though sometimes are a bit repetitive and can lag a little when you fight a Pokemon who ups it’s defenses, is still fun. The addition of online multiplayer battles or trading of Pokemon. It’s all just great.

All in all, if you have a Nintendo DS, then you must have this Pokemon game. No question about it. I think at this point in the game, your pretty much outcasted by gamer society if you don’t fall in and try to catch ‘em all.
