This is a great game. The touch screen works well. Controls are great, and the battle system is superb. The game starts like all the other Pokemon games, by choosing one Pokemon and making your way through the gym and battles. You could use the WIFI and trade Pokemon around the world. That’s great if you want the 500 some Pokemon. I bought this game for my son and I loved it so much that I bought the Pokemon Pearl version, and we battle. The Nintendo DS has some incredible games for all ages. The Pokemon games have always been great RPGs and fan favorites. I first got the Pokemon Yellow about seven years ago and I was into it for a while, but the Pokemon Diamond is the best one yet, and one of the DS's best RPGs.
Enter Generation IV
From a just released standpoint, Pokemon Diamond stands strong as another great game in the Pokemon series. Not only the nice graphical jump to DS, but better animations, and a more detailed world make exploring so much more invigorating. Where generation II gave us new Pokemon and "baby pokemon", I feel now we revieved "adult pokemon" like Magmortar or Electivire. New pokeballs and items are always great of course and now there is a method of hunting shiny Pokemon. Its no Johto, but I think it has a stronger post game than generation III did. (And much less water thankfully) Also, finally able to trade and batte each other with no peripherals. And all your boxes can be uploaded to Battle Revolution on the Wii. Definately should be owned by the die hard pokemon fan.
This game is the most beast game ever
this game is for awesome games. I love it. I guarantee this is worth your money.
I am a huge Pokemon fan and have been following the games since their first release. I just bought the Diamond version today and brought it home. I went to play it in my ds and it wont read the game card!! I can play my Black 2 version just fine along with my Zelda game but this one just wont read at all, my ds wont even begin to recognize the game for whatever reason. I even tried it in 2 other systems and they wouldn't recognize it either so I know it's not just my system. Very disappointed, it almost makes me not want to go back to game stop.
Doesn't read DS card
The DS card won't work and I was wondering if I could trade the game for another please let me trade the game I tried playing and when it didn't work I got mad but please let me trade it please and thank you.
The worst pokemon game in pokemon histery
When it first stared i did not like it .then when you go to the 3 city your pokemon won't a bay so i would not recommend this to anyone
PIC fire types.
very great games great for 6 and up love most of the pokemon exciting fun and cool and very funny!!!
Great Pokemon Game
In all honesty, this, pearl and platinum are amazing games. Like all portable console pokemon games, you'll never be able to put the game down. It's a game you can constantly play until you practically 'Catch 'em All,' and even then you can still get some playing hours on it! This game is great for a kid who loves Pokemon. Don't spend $40 on the new Pokemon games, and just buy this. It's a great buy for a birthday or a present for some good grades on a report card. A must get!
Great Game, Great Music
I played this game, and was immediately impressed by the music. Even though the new Pokemon generation has come out, I still think this music is better than in Pokemon Black and White, I found myself humming to the tunes long after I had finished the game, with great pleasure. The gameplay, Pokemon, nuff said. After you have finished the game, there is still plenty to do. Go to the Grand Festival, Make poffins, and you used to be able to trade over the WiFi connection. Go underground and fin cool stuff, catch swarm Pokemon, breed cool combinations, and just have fun!
This is a great game from the 4th Generation. It has great starters and while all Pokemon games have relatively the same story line with a small twist every game still has great story lines. This game is one of the few that have real storylines that are interesting in the game. The Pokemon are great and the game isn't one you can finish in one day. This game has a story line even after the Elite Four and is good to have because of how fun it is. Their are lots of Legendary to find even later in the game so this game takes along time. Excellent buy.
