Pokemon X is awesome. If you disagree then you are disagreeable. You like that logic? You better or else Pokemon X and I are gonna beat you up.
First off, the last Pokemon game I played was Pokemon Silver back in the year 2000. That’s crazy. 13 years ago. Somehow Pokemon X managed to hold on to everything that made Red/Blue & Gold/Silver fun to me back then, but also managed to change everything. “The more things change the more they stay the same”. That sort of thing. Having missed five generations of Pokemon game also means there are several hundred Pokemon I’ve never heard of before. It’s a delight to see all the new ones alongside my old favorites.
As I played, the old theme song line of, “Gotta catch em’ all” rang true. I have spent hours walking through the tall grass just looking for the different variety of Pokemon that show up, battling the ones that I already have and catching the ones I don’t. I will spend many more hours playing this game within the game.
True to form, Pokemon have to use HMs to “cut”, “surf”, etc. Most of the time I don’t have a move I am willing to give up, so just pass by the thorny bushes, noting their locations so that on my second play through I will get them.
Game Freak removed all the annoyances from the old games, like the fact that only my Pokemon in battle got exp (now everyone at least gets a little). They also gave me awesome roller blades. It’s fun.
Graphically there is a huge overhaul and it’s great. There are dynamic camera angles that go from over the shoulder third person to birds eye view, to the traditional offset angle. The 3-D is great. It only activates during battles and special events, saving battery power and not over-playing it.
And I finally have a T-Rex Pokemon. Need I say more? I have five badges currently and I’ll update you guys when I have more.
