Best Pokemon Games
The Top Ten Best Pokemon Games
I was so addicted to this game that I played till 3Am, Those were the good times now I just do homework till 3AM!
I love this game, is the best because you can catch almost all the pokemons from the hoen region, also you are able to catch Kyogre, Rayquaza and Groudon. Another awesome thing about Emerald is that it introduces the Battle Frontier. Without doubt, if you are a true fan of the Pokemon franchise you MUST have this awesome game!
My first pokemon game was gold but I think this one was even better. There were so many places to explore even after beating the pokemon league like the sea and abandoned ship. And when you were done with that you could start catching the 7 legendary pokemon, and go the the battle frontier. Definitely the best game.
This game was just amazing, even though I haven't finish the game 100%, I still got my main reason why I love this game:
First, that this game unlike other game (yet) was the only game that fully utilized almost every HM in order to get to town to town for ex:
In order to get to Sootopolis city, you must use surf and dive to find the cave leading to the city (which can be both frustrating yet very challenging also rewarding once you discover the town :D
Second, This game got a really great and well balanced storyline also this is the only pokemon games where the protagonist is not a total GODLIKE kid-teen that menage to unrealistically destroy a dark organization single handle-ly, because this game have well balanced aspect on the villainous team
Third, this game unlike most game (I'm looking at you GEN 5)
Is less Urban and more on the adventure feeling, yes many of you would say there's to much water in the game, but seriously in other games beside RB, SP and EM is ...more
WHATS UP GUYS!
DIAMOND IS ON 3rd position and you are ignoring platinum
Well, I completely agree, for the fact that it does actually have a lot of differences between diamond and pearl. For instance:
You get a level 20 eevee at hearhome from bebe, but in D+P, That was lv.5
The drifloon you get at the valley windoworks, is now level 15 instead of 22.
You can walk with your starter in Hearthome!
Not to mention the different designs!
Am I right?
POKEMON PLATINUM: BEST POKEMON GAME BEYOND ANY CREATIONS! TO BE THE TOP! BOP TO THE TOP!
While I have played a few other Pokemon games (Diamond & Pearl, Heart Gold & Soul Silver, and Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire), I have to say that Platinum is the best Pokemon game of all time, as well as it still being my favorite one to play today. Diamond & Pearl were the first games that I have played (and they are still great games to this day), but Platinum was a big step-up from them for many reasons.
1. The story was expanded.
2. The levels of Trainers's Pokemon were more balanced. (For example: In Diamond & Pearl, the levels of the 8th Gym Leader's Pokemon ranged from 46 to 49 and the levels of the 1st Elite Four's Pokemon ranged from 53-57. But in Platinum, the 8th Gym Leader's Pokemon levels ranged from 46-50 and the 1st Elite Four's Pokemon levels ranged from 49-53.)
3. My top favorite Pokemon Giratina got the attention it deserved when it got a whole world of its own as well as getting another form, which looked cooler in my opinion.
4. You can catch both ...more - DariusDragonKingKingston555
Unbelievable... Stunning graphics... And nothing to meddle with old memories... Definitely top notch on the behalf of Nintendo! New mixes with old, with not only a connection to Kanto, but the ability to look at Sinnoh and Hoenn through the Pokemon make this best yet!
For me, the Silver-Gold remakes are my number one games. I simply put SoulSilver first because I prefer Lugia over Ho-Oh. I've played every game in the main series since the beginning with Blue and let me tell you, SoulSilver is the best game and deserves it.
Not talking about nostalgia, since I hadn't played Silver before this game, SoulSilver had outstanding graphics. The traditional Chinese environment Johto hosted made you really feel as if you were on an adventure in a foreign country. The houses, the cities, heck even people were based on a traditional Chinese society.
In addition to that, everything had an incredible backstory. The Ruins of Alph, the Sprout Tower, the Burned Tower, Bell Tower, Whirl Islands etc. Everything had a well-made, interesting legend. The legendary Pokemon were much more interesting than any other version, with the Legendary beasts supposedly embodying one of the three natural disasters that brought down the Tower, with Lugia flying off ...more
This game is by far my favorite of all the Pokemon games. This is because in most of the games after the elite four your done. This one there a whole different region to play through. Graphix are great and the amount of quality Pokemon you can get is unmatched. Pokemon SoulSilver all the way!
Ill be the first to admit that while gen 2 was good, The graphics were underwhelming and kind of damaged my opinion of the game. This installment fixed that problem while adding so much new. This new take on Johto was so fun to explore especially on my first playthrough. The music was amazing and although some towns shared music. The music was so good that it didn't even bother me. There was so much content in this game. There were a seemingly endless amount of side quests minigames, secret areas and of course. Pokemon. After beating the main story you unlock kanto. A WHOLE NEW REGION. They basically gave you a whole new game. Kanto is pretty challenging and full of legendary pokemon. Some of my fondest gaming memories were finding the safari zone without a guide. Catching mewtwo. Rematching lance and of course. Beating red on my first try. If you own a ds PLEASE play this game. Please
Those of you who are claiming that games like Diamond and Pearl can compete with the original Pokemon games or the remakes of the originals must have joined the Pokemon party late. The original games will forever be a masterpiece and hallmark of gaming. Those games launched a frenzy in their heyday the likes we will never see again. The nostalgia and memories will always make them top dog.
Nostalgia and memory shouldn't be why the game was good. The hardware sucked and there were to many glitches. - MrQuaz680
I love this game. I think the original Pokemon game was the best, because hey, nothing beats the original! (I'm talking about Pokemon Blue/Red) But this game has much better quality to it, and better music, you can play it on the DS, and frankly it has Charizard on the cover who the ____ doesn't like Charizard? LOVE THIS GAME
I don't think this is the best but why not respect peoples opinions please? - HeavyDonkeyKong
This is my favorite Pokemon game because I spent the most time on it. I have totaled 431 hours on it alone.
My personal favorite when I was younger I lost this game losing my first level 100 and also losing mew two it made me upset to have lost a HUGE part of my childhood but then one Christmas I got it again and I was REALLY HAPPY the reason why it is my personal favorite is #1 it is the first game in the series that I ever played. #2 it was the game that got me into the series and #3 I was very young so I believed in santa and back then he was my role model because hearing him in all of those stories I wanted to be like him to give out stuff to people that have lost hope or lost someone or a pet near and dear to them I wanted to help in some way and that Christmas eve I wished the following "I wish that I could have my Pokemon fire red game back and if I get the game then I will act like him when I got older." I got the game and from there on I was nice to people and I never let go of hope whenever my friends or family get sad I try all I can do to comfort them in those times of ...more
I've spent so much time on this game! It's fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a Pokemon game. It takes a while to complete owing to the 16 badges rather than 8 and you can get a Johto starter, a Kanto starter and a Hoenn starter, unlike the other games. You can also get over 10 legendaries completely legitimately which is one of the highest numbers that you get in the game. Plus, you get the pokewalker, which is great if your out and about a lot, and an even easier way of portably playing and leveling up your Pokemon!
Good game. I found the title more attractive, since I'm a girl lol
This was my first pokemon game so it hold a deep and meaningful place it my heart
Great game! Good to entertain you till black and white is out
I think the Black and White series have the most fleshed out and deep plots of the Pokemon series. Most people admittedly identify with the first generation more purely because of nostalgia, and I don't think that's fair to the later generations. 5th gen actually expanded its storyline with a second game and even provided back story to its characters (namely N) that we didn't have to find out via the manga or anime. The soundtrack was amazing, and I actually teared up at the end when N flew off with his dragon. That's a first for any of the main Pokemon games for me. I play games mainly for story, and that's why the 5th gen ranks as number 1 for me. I cared about the characters, especially the returning ones in the sequels since they were familiar and I had previous baggage from the last game I brought along. The music helped drive the story more and I thought the dialogue was excellently written. There's some sweet cut scenes thrown in too just for that much epic. Hell, even the ...more
Why black is 15th? It's so much better! I can't believe that!
Pokemon black is the best Pokemon game ever! It has awesome, amazing graphics, as well as a super cool storyline! Don't even get me started on the super cool Pokemon in this game.
Who crest if they are homages? And you judge them by just two pokemon only what? - HeavyDonkeyKong
The best Pokemon ever with the best music, toughest gym leaders, coolest pokemons and awesome graphics!
Why isn't this at the top? It looks like the best yet! I mean, come on. Pokémon battles in 3D!
Let's be honest it has by far the best graphics and before this the Pokemon games had really been taking a turn for the worse, but this game has really turned it around and it should definitely be in the top five. It is only down here because it is new and no one is willing to buy a new 3DS just for this game, but I did and I think that it was well worth it because I did not even sleep the night after I got it... It really is that addicting.
This holds a special place in my heart since it was one of my first games. (I was nine), and it was really exciting to see the graphics. While, sure, it added a small number of Pokemon, they all looked amazing and was focused more on "quality" than "quantity" I loved the starters, the legendaries, the new typing, it was all amazing! I mean, not everyone's gonna love it like I do, but yeah...It's probably my favorite. - Staruli
I remember when this came out and I was like woah cool graphics because this was like so good compared to black 2 and white 2(still good games) but I watched my brother played it and it looked fun.
This game is awesome great graphics great sound and animation lets face it this game rocks awesome pokemon and dialga is beast my favorite pokemon is lucario and he was invented here
Pokemon diamond is the best. The graphics are good but they don't over do it like black and white. This game has the best pokemon ever! Girintina and my favorite Torterra. This was my second game after fire red (gameboy advanced version) so this was the game that actually taught me about pokemon it helped me understand pokemon. I also like this game because this game has more pokemon to catch, the hardest E4 and more legendaries than any other game. Finally this game was a great adventure because Sinnoh is the largest region, it let me explore and have a great time. I've played this game 400 hours and I'm not stopping. Any REAL pokemon fan should have this. And don't bother getting black and white its the easiest game ever!
Pkmn diamond is a great adventure game that prevents you from giving up. Out out of all of my pkmn games, pkmn diamond is my favorite game. Most of people should like it too. Games like it are awesome!
Honestly I may be a little biased for this is my first ever pokemon game, but this is in my opinion one of the best games. I even loved the anime part of it! The song tracks are beautiful, the graphics are nice and classic and not overdone, the pokemon there are awesome! I love the places you can go to as well. I would play this game for hours sometimes and it is the probably the only game I've ever played where I would pay double the price if I could play it again. Playing this game was my favorite part of my youngness as you could say, as now school and homework take over. Thanks Nintendo for making this game
Nothing beats this one. It brings back so many memories for me and I love how it is just simple and to the point. Oh and Pikachu following you around is so adorable. - TheAxlErmin
Pokemon R/B/Y set are the best. They will always be. 151 pokes were the first creations and they are genious designs. The followers are just found through a pile of what is left in the animal/plant kingdom. I might say yellow is so stuck with pikachu but still you collect all the starters and Team Rocket is more fun.
Ah, Pokemon Yellow. It's honestly a classic, and for a gameboy game there was just so much on it. I appreciate the extremely unfriendly rival that's always one step ahead of you, and an evil team that's essentially The Pokemon Mafia. With colorful characters and a catchy soundtrack, this game holds a special place in my heart. Red, Blue, and Green were all pretty good but Yellow feels like a slightly more complete version to me, and the addition of Pikachu is pretty adorable. I love the little dance he does if you leave him above a ledge after you jump off of it!
You can't beat the originals. By far the best game of the series. So fun
Being the originals does not make up for the fact that it has the least features and worst designs in the series. - Mooshroomsrock17
Hands down one of the best Pokemon games of all time! With so much depth in the story and so many great new places in the Johto region, along with the original Kanto region (with some minor tweaks, like Veridian Forest an the Power Plant). The great characters stories like your Rival being a criminal who becomes good have never been matched by newer characters. Even Joey and his Rattata had more depth than any new Black and White trainer, and who didn't get annoyed by his constant calling, but still not feel bad for him whenever that Pidgey escaped his grasp?
Not to mention the new additions that forever changed Pokemon for what it is today: Genders in Pokemon an Main Characters alike, Breeding, Shiny Pokemon... The list goes on and on! The first game to have animated sprites and to have pokeballs that were made from apricorns. An amazing and haunting soundtrack (Who doesn't get nostalgic from Ecruteak City's theme song? and the first game to add different music for the "bad ...more
It's a great game! I've had mine for 8 years of my life. The first two regions are all I ever cared about because they were my childhood. I have right about 800 hours on mine. If I included the time spent before restarting, it might be about 820. The amount of time this game can accumulate annihilates any Wii, GameCube, or N64 game I've played!
This game has Pokemon from both the Kanto and Johto regions. So why vote for Pokemon Red or Blue? I understand that the newer games have more Pokemon and some of the same ones. Some people just like the first and second generation Pokemon more than the newer ones. This game should be rated #1.
The hands down best Pokemon game ever, great story line. I adore how it's like you have to prove yourself to the legendary dogs (suicune really) but the story doesn't prevent you from easily getting through the gyms like in black in white. My one peeve is how easily typhlosion can walk through the gyms, and how easy victory road is. That doesn't mean that this game is not challenging, the ice path can be very tough to figure out. Another plus to this game is access to 2 regions! 16 badges of awesomeness and epic battles vs Red packing level 80s. Pokemon Crystal is hands down the greatest Pokemon game of all time!
Pokemon White 2 is by far the best Pokemon game ever. It's amazing how it makes you take a stroll down memory lane-- revisiting Unova, discovering the remnants of team Plasma and going to the previous main character's house (Pokemon White). This game is AWESOME!
It is an awesome game and has more features and is really fun the tournament and the white hollow really challenges you
This was my first pokemon game, Yes, I might like it more for that reason, but still. There was so much you could do, and so much to explore! Also that soundtrack makes me emotional just listening to it. It's so good aa >w<
It is a really good pokemon game for being a new one, lot's of locations, amazingly huge regional dex, and a wide variety of pokemon to choose from to make a team. From Bulbasaur to Genesect, there are 649. This game offers about 400 of them to be obtained. 400 in my opinion. But either way, I love this game. I got it in October, it is now Dec 28th, and I have 130+ hours on it.
The game that allow me to discover the pokemon universe. I like Zekrom, the scenario, and the place. The battle are difficult enough and I love the pokemon inside. My favorite game!
It is a awesome game with lots of new Pokemon, a new region with better Pokemon, should be number 1 no doubt zekrom is beast anyway
I got this game a game stop but it didn't had the case and some girl name koashi already playes it and all the wall up to mistralton city but I didn't mind it this is my favorite generation and I love every bit of it. Wish I hadn't lost it though
Pokemon White gives us a new world to explore, full with new Pokemon for us to catch, and in my opinion it's the ultimate pokémon Experience.
If you are a true Pokemon fan you gotta love this!
I remember when this came out and I was like woah cool graphics because this was like so good compared to black 2 and white 2(still good games) and I really want the game
I just loved playing it and battling especially with greninja and lucario
To me, it doesn't look as good as Pokemon X but I still like it.
They literally are the same game with slightly different sets of pokemon - 8chAnonymous
Awesome, got it the day it came out! As well the trading system of random pokemon, it doesn't get any better!
Pokemon Black 2 is the best. No doubt, hands down everyone. Although I must admit I'm not really a fan of the mascot in the game (Black Kyurem). Besides that I think it's an absolutely wonderful game. I just absolutely love Humilau City so much it's like a paradise island! The gym is just an great experience with the relaxing music and all! But besides that you can even link back to the previous games Black and White and have flashbacks which to me is really awesome. People might complain that since it's a remake it's basically the same as the previous games. Wrong! Many new things such as The Black Tower (Black 2) is a brand new challenges which is tough and difficult to face, just what anyone would want. New characters including Colress and two other gym leaders Roxie and Marlon make the game a lot interesting to play. Also the Xtransceiver has for features including being able to talk to some of the main characters of the game and also four way calls! That way a maximum of 4 ...more
This game is below Pokemon Mystery Dungeon? That's a disgrace in my opinion!
This is one of the best pokemon games of all time and just because it's a sequel and uses the same region, it doesn't mean this has to be at the bottom. Just look at Pokemon Silver, that was a sequel which re-used the Kanto region and it's No. 3 on the list.
I've been a pokemon fan since that generation and I think this game deserves a chance. I can understand if nostalgic games such as Red & Blue are at the top of this list but to me, this is the best pokemon game to date and deserves to be closer to the top.
This and black 1 were the games that brought me into loving the Pokemon series, why the heck is this 14th, even though I love Pokemon black 1 and 2 so much, I would have to go with black 2. I will start with my complaints: I hate how you can only catch kyurem post game, and also, you can't go to dragonspiral tower until post game. Here are my pros now: The Pokemon World Tournament is super fun in this game and you can fight so many guys that you know in it, there is the pokestar studios which is an amazing touch, you can even get more items from it, the stunning cutscenewhen team plasma attacks on their airship, it looks like it would fit on some ridiculous console, which was amazing for the DS, and last but not least, it has a story. Yeah, I know what your thinking, A STORY, IN A POKEMON GAME, WHAT THE HECK! But if you are wondering, and no, it isn't just the overused get the gym badges, beat the elite four, and become the Pokemon champion. This isn't just one of the best Pokemon ...more
If one should take off the nostalgia goggles for a second and look at what we're supposed to be voting on you won't have to look any further for an absolutely perfect Pokemon game. Why do I say Black and White 2 are the best? Well Without any attachment to any Pokemon whatsoever these are the most balanced games. While Pokémon Diamond, pearl, and platinum were relatively difficult and required a lot of grinding, and Pokémon X, Y and soforth are relatively easy. Black and White two are difficult but not too difficult. You have to grind but you don't spend hours on it, rather an average playtime requires it but it isn't all you're doing, the story was easy to follow and pretty dark and interesting. Your rival was cool and actually helped you take down the villains. The gym leaders weren't pushovers despite having only three Pokemon each, and let's not forget a glorius postgame only overtaken by Gold, Silver, and their respective remakes. Black and White 2 were the all around best ...more
I grew up playing Pokemon and I started with Pokemon Blue, I used to bring my gameboy to primary school with my friends and we would play all day and I loved every moment of it and then Silver and Gold were released. Me and my sister rushed to get them. Pokemon Silver and Gold are have the best story, the best Pokemon (100 awesome additions to already amazing Pokemon) and 2 main story's I mean after beating the E4 in most games that's basically it you've won but to send the player to Kanto and have a whole other story involved that goes beyond good creating. My favorite pokemon of all time is in this game as well (Espeon) after this game the quality in pokemon declined but I still enjoy playing them all again however Silver and Gold are my favorite along with Blue and Red, it's just unfortunate that so many young people growing up now never got to experience the magical days of Pokemon like me and so many other lucky people did it truly makes me happy to remember those days of playing ...more
This pokemon game had the best story, and you can go on MUCH longer than other games, they had pokemon that didn't suck, and stories that didn't make you wanna lie down and die. The problem to the newest pokemon games is that it feels like they have drawn a random creature and given it a random name. Then think they'll make millions.
I really look forward to a generation of pokemon where they make something similar, and adds some more excitement too.
People who grew up after blue don't see the quality, and I am sorry for them.
My first Pokemon game! Nostalgia... I'm from Poland, and when I was playing that game, I was six. I didn't understand anything, but that was EPIC. Sorry for my english, but I think that's even better than Fire Red.
Ah, Pokemon Silver, in my opinion the peak of Pokemon gaming. The reason later Pokemon games pale in comparison is that they lacked the depth and back story that Silver managed to gain from being a sequel to Red and Blue, such as Koga, member of the elite four, used to actually be the gym leader of Fusia city (which everyone knows, of course). All this back story could be revealed after beating all the Johto gyms and the elite four, and then heading back to Kanto to beat the old gym leaders again. The two regions was absolutely fantastic, giving Silver the longest post game content out of any Pokemon game. Going back to Kanto and seeing what had changed since your Pokemon Red play through was simply amazing, my favorite example of this being the eruption of Cinnabar island and finding Blaine's gym in the Sea foam Islands. Silver was strengthened by the legacy of Red and Blue and vice versa, making both set of games truly better. Playing Red and Blue was essentially playing Silver in ...more
This game is a great remake to ruby and sapphire (alpha sapphire), the animations and the story are fantastic and if you've played ruby or sapphire it would be a great trip down memory lane but with a twist, yes I'm talking about the mega evolutions and the 3D graphics and it's the SAME story line as the originals but the only different events is the primal forms of the respected legendaries and the "delta" episode which you catch rayquaza to stop a meteor from hitting the earth which then turns out to be where deoxys slumbered and you get to catch him too if you haven't used your master ball yet or you got hella ultra balls and mad luck. And aside from that you can rechallenge trainers, soar through the sky on a latios or latias (yes meaning controlling them and flying through the sky getting attacked by flying Pokémon or visiting islands that are mirage or have legendaries randomly on them) respected to their versions, and you can get so many legendaries from this game a ...more
My first pokemon game. I'm like genwunner, but for gen 3. Only pokemon game where my team hit level 100 before I got tired of looking for them all. Also got my first shiny in this game before I knew what shines were. Realizing it was different, I caught it. A duskull. I love the sound track, the stories, the locations, hoard battles, the little thing that tells you which pokemon are in the area, the post game secret bases, everything. I LOVE THIS GAME!
This game is the best because it was the first game that allowed you to get exclusive pokemon from different regions such as the starters.
This is the best game so far because it has stunning graphics (3D) and not only is it a remake but you can catch Pokemon from any region. If they remade Emerald however then I'd rate that the best but this beats it all hands down! This game just came out so I wouldn't expect it to go that high as far as ranking
At the time this game was released I was probably 5 or 6, I had no idea they would be releasing another Pokemon game. Before Sapphire I had finally accomplished my goal of getting my Typhlosion to level. 100 and was actually content. But once I started on this game I doubled and almost even tripled the hours spent on Golf version. This game was so much fun for me and I spent countless hours on it. I don't think there is a best Pokemon game but I do think the memories we have of them affect how we think of each of them. This game was truly my favorite not for the story or the game, but because of all the time I spent trading and battling my cousin. It's just not as common these days to battle and trade with friends either because everyone has grown up or they are too ashamed to be themselves. I personally have been playing Pokemon for around 10 years now and I am not in the least bit ashamed or embarrassed to admit it.
I played all of the originals, Silver, and Crystal before this one, but Sapphire will always be my favorite. The battles in Gen 1 were too easy (and the maps were too hard), and Gen 2 felt more like an add-on with fixes than a new game. But I remember when Blaziken was revealed in the anime, and it blew my mind. Sapphire was the culmination of Pokemon games, featuring a ton of innovation (weather, abilities, team battles, berries, contests, RUNNING etc.). The games since have been tweaking the formula (usually for the worst...DPP is SO boring) and while I get Emerald being ranked so high thanks to boyfriend, let's be honest, E4 is what matters, and Wallace is lame and easy compared to Steven. The elemental legendaries feel much more like Pokemon than all the new 'god' crap, and it just gets boring when they keep trying to one-up the creation myth theme that Sapphire established without going overboard and creating a multiverse. Looking forward to Sword and Shield though since it looks ...more
It's really fun, you get an awesome legendary, and you get rain at the end of the game when the world gets destroyed. Besides, Team Magma is more awesome to be on sides with!
When you remember back to the few years between silver and gold and sapphire and ruby, the popularity began to dip and people were saying that the Pokemon craze was over. But when sapphire came out, their stock rose like crazy, bringing back the awesomeness Pokemon is known for. That is why I believe it should top the list.
This is the best pokemon game, everything was done amazingly, no more must be said, play it now
The way that this is #42 is wrong in my opinion, this game's new graphics is awesome, it should be #2-10
I'm honestly surprised it is not higher. It's pretty much the same as Omega Ruby! (With a few changes of course)
Sapphire used to be my favourite, but this improved significantly on an already amazing game. The epitome of Pokemon games.
Could you please stop insulting 90s kids.
Maybe we have no interest in playing the new Pokemon game or watching a new Pokemon Anime season.
Its called childhood get over it.
Please do not be a hypocrite saying the graphics are awful but then you go and play a retro game like the early Mario games they rereleased.
I Like this game a lot! It's not all to well, I say FireRed is better. Lots of people say this is the best because its old, but that is a really stupid thing to say. I like this game not because its old but because it has good gameplay. It is all fun which is what I think the reason for most people liking this game should be. Thank You.
A relic of it's time and it shows as it has aged poorly with as Kanto rereleases show how barren the region actually feels - Murphdog405
The original Pokemon games were definitely the best of all of them. You can't beat the original 150. We didn't even now mew existed until we saw it in the intro of the anime that came out later on in the Pokemon era. There was more mystery to the game because the internet wasn't very popular yet. Take not children that the originals are th
I beat this game, and it was so sad. :(
Otherwise, it was a great game. I don't like the fact that your character only has thoughts and he doesn't talk.
Just listening to the track 'I don't want to say goodbye' makes me tear up a little. As a kid I loved every bit of this game from the sense of excitement of discovering a new dungeon to the feeling of adventure during the expedition arc to way the story can make see the beauty in everyday life or a simple sunrise, or to the heartwarming and heartbreaking parts of the story that I feel really stayed with me. This game influenced my life and got me into video games and made me want to go into game design, it's a huge part of my childhood that I'll remember and I'll always be grateful to the writers and composers who designed such a beautiful story.
The story was so beautiful and I never had so much fun playing a Pokemon game. It made me feel so much more emotion than red and blue rescue team. The end was so sad, my friend and I both cried. I loved the plot and how it involved Grovyle and Dusknoir and their rivalry and hate for each other. Best Pokemon game by far.
Great game. PMD, especially the old games, should be more popular, but it seems like it's not very well known. It has an amazing, emotional story. Ignore the critics on this one.
I have no clue why Silver is so high up on this list and Gold is so low. These two games were almost identical. This game is one of my favorites of all time. I grew up playing this game and also Red version. I am completely flabbergasted.
Pokemon Gold, one of my favorite games of all time. I spent almost all my time on this when I was younger, whenever I came home from school, almost instantly I would pick up my Gameboy Color and spend hours upon hours. It really is sad to see how low on the list this is... Considering Silver and Crystal are way higher, when these games didn't have many differences besides the available Pokemon.
awesomest ever game, long, good pokemon, unlike in hertgold or soulsilver jigglypuff right at the start
This game is good so is crystal - naruto71012
I love the music, the battle, the region. I know it may be linear, but I absolutely love the atheistic. My favorite thing about these games and their alternate universe counterparts are all the side quests. It made the world feel real. I can't go back to any Pokemon game after playing this one. Pokemon Sword felt empty in my opinion. - Ludicolo
Also rowlet, litten and popplio are just about the best trio of starters I have ever seen
How this game is the best ever should be 1 the best game of all time this or Omega Ruby
This is easily the best in the series. Good looking graphics, fun battles, memorable new characters, a great story, tons of post game content, and of course, brand new Pokemon.
Very nice game, the best of Pokemon!
My first Pokemon game and hands down my favorite Pokemon game. Its great because you can get every single Pokemon without having to trade with other people. Also the way the Pokemons' moves are played out are a bit more... Realistic, in the sense that they bring in aspects such as range. I have lost so many hours of my life playing this game.
This games music is by far the best of any soundtrack, it brings back the most memories for me, and is much more personal than any of the other games. The storyline is the best, as well as the post game play. The fact that you can get every single legendary is so much more fun becuase it doesn't limit one to a game, or even a few to a game, you can get and of them throughout the game. Also, this game is awesome to play over and over again, becuase the gameplasy changes each time you play, with each character.
Your personality matches up with your Pokemon which is awesome, and I love the story line, it was far more original than any other in the series
My first game. I love the legendary, and I caught an alolan Ninetales!
First game I played, good memories
Took 81 tries to beat elite four - Tstardoughnuts
This was a great game that Game Freak ruined by spoiling everything
When I an writing this, Pokemon sun and moon are out, and are the most pre ordered video game from Nintendo EVER. Pretty much everywhere it sold out. I was lucky enough to get on for Christmas, and it is way better than my other Pokemon game, Omega ruby. I don't know why it isn't at the top
This game and Colosseum both offered a much darker and grittier atmosphere than other Pokemon games. From the thugs running around in the littered town of Pyrite to the sinister factory of Cipher Key Lair these games were something else. The concept is unique too. Instead of running around through some tall grass hoping to catch something good you simply snag powerful Pokemon from other trainers. Yeah. You get to steal Pokemon in this game. These games also introduced shadow Pokemon which are stronger than the ordinary Pokemon. An evil organization is using them for wrongful deeds which is why you steal the shadow Pokemon from other trainers and purify them so they can return to their normal state. Not only that, this game is packed with double battles. About 95% of the battles in this game are double which opens up many strategy opportunities and is really a cooler battling experience. If you are a Pokemon fan looking fro something a little different then look no further than ...more
Great game. The way of catching Pokemon is unique. So much better than all the others. Even though you can't be a girl (which pisses me off -_-) it's still an amazing game. It has Pokemon from red/blue and silver/gold, so it's a really good mix and a great number of different Pokemon. LOVE IT.
Don't worry, I still absolutely ADORE the original styled Pokemon games, I pre-order them whenever a new game comes out! I'm obsessed with Pokemon! But it's nice to have a totally different concept every once in a while, don't you agree? Gale of Darkness is my absolute favorite Pokemon game for multiple reasons! I love the fact that there's more to the storyline than just catching Pokemon and training them, then catching the main legendary Pokemon near the end and defeating the Elite Four. This game brought up a totally new concept to the Pokemon world! You don't search in tall grass, you get to steal other people's Pokemon! Then you proceed to purify them and train them as your own. I also LOVED the fact that it was in 3D! AWESOME. I just liked that there was more to training your Pokemon other than just blatantly training. You had to purify them as well! I loved that there was an ACTUAL STORYLINE AND PLOT. No gym leaders, and THE BEST TRAINING METHOD EVER. I absolutely LOVE the ...more
Great game. You get to battle new and old characters. Even better than coliseum
I loved this game! I know it's just a remake of Darkness and Time but still, it added things like the jukebox (slight appeal), the Spinda Cafe (slightly bigger appeal), being able to send ITEMS to another game rather than AN ITEM (slight appeal), and the special episodes, above all. I love to hear about how Wigglytuff got the treasure mentioned in your exploration to Fogbound Lake (it was mentioned by Team Skull), how Team Charm met Wigglytuff, how they became famous, how Bidoof was before you and your partner came to the guild, what Sunflora's big OH MY GOSH, and especially, what happens to Grovyle and Duskinoir after the Rainbow Stone Ship battle. It ties up the loose ends and is so exciting!
I think this game should be 21st place or higher since the ones above this game don't really deserve their spot.
Example: Pokemon X hasn't even come out yet! How can it be better?
Example: Pokemon Explorers of Time and Darkness leave you hanging and if not for Sky, we ...more
Aside from making less Pokemon version exclusive, Explorers of Sky's main change is the special episodes that add more character development, especially to two of the game's main characters: Grovyle and Dusknoir. The story is no different than Time or Darkness, yet it is so well-crafted that I end up playing the game for the plot rather than the extremely addicting gameplay. This is my favorite Pokemon game of all time, and it is very underrated compared to the attention the main series games get. - DemonSpider253
Not just best Pokemon spin-off game, not just best Pokemon game, just best game ever
What can I say about this game. That it is the best game of Pokemon (for me, course), and I know that there's people that say: "That is just a secondary game of Pokemon. Never is gonna be better than other Pokemon's games", but I Think differently, and I think that this game deserve an opportunity. 'Cause, maybe, just maybe, this game may become in your favorite game too
"A carbon copy of Pokemon Sapphire"
for your information they came out at the same time. So...
Sure, this game is practically a carbon copy of Pokemon Sapphire, however I believe that the Ruby version was slightly superior only because I felt that Team Magma felt more like true antagonists and that Groudon was way more awesome than Kyogre. However, I am slightly biased towards this game as it was the first Pokemon game I had ever played, and it was the one that made me fall in love with the franchise (and made me fail math in 7th Grade...)
Well so far I think that this is 1 of the best Pokemon games, since it isn't very old like red, yellow... Etc and it had a great storyline and many awesome pokemons, and I really liked the other characters like your friends and rivals who comes from time to time and battle with you
As well as Twister it started the game era of Pokemon for me. I feel like this is the same as the Sapphire Pokemon, though with better gameplay, and the special Pokémon is better.
Honestly, even with all its flaws in type balance, I still really like this game. That's not to say it's the BEST game, I voted for Pokemon : Gale of Darkness, but it's still really good. I never had much problem with the amount of Pokemon, but I like the simplicity, most certainly. Though Generation One was my least favorite, I still like toying around with the various glitches. Missingno., Mew, etc., it was all really interesting, especially not finding Missingno with a guide. Overall, sheer nostalgia, simplicity, and glitches are keeping this near my heart.
Although it can be said that the content and graphics upgrades of FR/LG make the originals B/R better it's the fact that these two games are what started the whole Pokemon gameboy game dynasty. The original 151 Pokemon were not only the best in their design and compatibility with each other, but not a total hassle to catch all of them, just a few trades with the other game and it was done. Not only that but this game was the perfect balance of simplicity and fun. No EV training, no breeding, and no National Pokedex, just a boy and his starter taking on the world.
I started playing this when I was 7 and I still have the game that I started 13 years ago. Pokemon will be a part of most of my generations childhood and this was the thing that started this all. Blue or Red should be #1 without question
This game brings back such memories. Even only being a 12 year old! Pokemon Blue was the first video game that I've EVER played! Sadly, modernization has brought the big square game paks out, and furthermore, just game paks completely out of the picture. I'd like to see a modernized version of a Gameboy released! A bit of graphic enhancing (not too much though. I still want to see that charming squarey art that brings nostalgia to the eyes... Oh, not to mention keeping the music! ) could probably make this a hit among adults who KNOW what the good games are, and possibly even bring a light of classic respect to the eyes of the modern generation... Sorry about my blabbering.
While games like Silver, Gold, Ruby, and Sapphire have all become amazing games, you can't forget where it all started. This game is still played today showing just how great the classic Pokemon fan-base was. If you don't think this is one of the best Pokemon games then you haven't played it yet.
This was my very first Pokemon game! I've had it since December of 2015 and I'm on the bit where you have to chase Mesprit around. I'm also prepping up to beat the Elite Four.
This was my very first Pokemon game, and I can make my opinion because I played the old Pokemon games too, but this game man, it's just awesome, Palkia is my favorite Pokemon of all and the game is just awesome graphics are awesome and just everything, the victory road was nice and long, the story was great and long, and catching the legendaries was just awesome, and at the time I didn't know how to use internet so I was always asking my friends and everything, but after I found a weird cave and tried to solve the puzzle without understanding English I made till Giratina, and that was one of the most amazing parts of my life, because this was the most intense Pokemon I had ever seen in my life. This is a 10/10! '
Best one ever, the gym leaders are awesome and when you catch Palkia, who rule!
I would like to vote because I have this game and it is very good
Pokemon Colosseum may not be the most addictive Pokemon game, and it may not be the most loved, but it is certainly my favorite by far. I had this as one of the first games for my GameCube, and I still have it now. The story is great (regardless of it being pretty cliche) and the animations are gorgeous. I love this game!
My personal favorite Pokemon game. It was ahead of its time, with 3D graphics that still hold up to this day. Great story, probably the best the series has ever seen, definitely the most grittiest. Cool locations too. And you start with UMBREON AND ESPEON for Christ sakes. What more is there to say. Play this game!
Personally one of my favourite Pokemon games. I so wish they would do a re-make of this. Loved the starters, storyline and graphics. It made a change having a bit of a darker plot as opposed to the mainstream stories
Best way of catching Pokemon ever! If you play Pokemon and haven't played Colosseum, you are a wuss. Shadow Pokemon are the best kind, and taking them from npcs is even better. Snag Machine also looks better in Colosseum than in my opinion...
I voted for Fire Red since they're essentially the same game, but this is the one I grew up with. I feel like Gen 1 wasn't actually that good. However Gen 1 games in Gen 3 engine are absolutely amazing. A lot of things in these games fell like they should've been in the first one. The abilities are fun additions, the items shake everything up, and the designs are mostly great, with a few failures such as Voltorb and Exeggcute. The most you can do in the first game for post game content is get all of the Pokemon and get all every TM. Pretty boring. However, these games add so much cool content. There is beating the Elite Four some more, doing some fun activities, and even being able to complete the National Dex. Theses games are great. - MasterBeef
I used to love playing this game. I still do and I'm 16. I play sports and I'm not a nerd. great game!
OK WHY ISN'T THIS FIRST? I always thought this was way better than fire red... This game has to be the best Pokemon game ever... I could play this all day long... Just wish I hadn't sold my game boy.
This is the first pokemon game I ever had and still remember catching my first legendary (zapdos) unfortunately I caught it with a master ball leaving me only with ultra balls to catch suicine later in the game
How is this game so low! It definitely better than the original red and blue. Best way to make it funner? Add gen 3.
This one has the best storyline of any pokemon game. By far. None of the other games can even touch it.
I remember playing this for HOUR'S trying to get to a high level losing I mean like who will ever get another chance like this it tells you how what Pokémon has what attributes and come on it tells you what Pokémon you are so what I am saying is that this game is great
I love Mystery Dungeon! - KalloFox34
For one emerald is on a handheld. Two emerald improved much from crystal. And Pokemon Stadium 2 while it is good it is not as memorable to people as Emerald. Don't go IGN on this forum
Best game ever
It needs to be HIGHER
The A.I. cheats so hard - Murphdog405
I LOVED this game. Why so low? I thought the story was nice, I liked the missions (especially the one were Barlow was kidnapped) and it was fun!
Great story and missions
I found this game so addicting. There were so many missions and quests. At the very end I could bring all of the eeveelutions around as my friend Pokemon. Tons of fun.
Well thought out game. It combines everything that all the original type games(diamond, pearl, black, white, etc) are and better. Highly underrated game and would not disappoint if you got it. Heard there was a second pokepark so I will be getting that soon
These games aren't good. If you want a good Pokémon console game, play the Rumble series or the Colosseum series. - KalloFox34
I remember renting this at a place which is now gone (I miss the Wii), and loved it so much that I nearly beat the game in an entire day. Couldn't beat it before I had to return it. The only thing I kept was the manual. - Trenchpit777
Although short, it was a nice game that's worth picking up if you're bored.
By far the best spinoff. I have so much time playing this game. The mechanics are fun and force you to think the characters all look really cool the story is good and there is so much to do.
Very underrated game. It's the best Pokemon spin-off game, and even the best Pokemon game in my mind. It improves on the original a lot by not letting everyone have hundreds of pokemon stuck in boxes, but only a few that are really connected with their master. The combat and need to position Pokemon was very different and fun. I wish they remade this to improve on it's flaws, because this game really deserves it and could grow to an even better game. Sadly with the few support it is getting now it will never reach that point.
Pokemon conquest is the best game of all time why isn't this up at the top seriously it combines warriors and Pokemon who wouldn't love this game I mean sure its not as good as the old classics like blue and red and firered but its still an amazing game and is completely underestimated on this website
Blue and Red were really bad, actually, from flawed mechanics to weak story to Jinx. - Warriorcatsfandom
I like this game, it was like something new for me, it's a mix of MisteryD and Tactics rpg games, but, I was not able to take the story too serious, and of characters are exactly identical, so it was difficult for me to search some of the characters if I want to change his Pokemon. Was very short for me, when you finish the story, there is nothing else to do with all the big effort you did and, when you finish the story, all the Links with your Pokemons go to 10% again, and lose all the places you conquest. There is only more story of the another characters in the same places. I expected something different about the story, but combat style is really great.
This game was very fun. I spent hours on end playing it. You can get all KINDS of cards. I remember when I pulled a Charizard from an Evolutions pack. The only thing is it's not worth 2 grand. :P
I remember when I pulled a mega mewtwo ex from generations! It was yesterday.
I pulled a snorlax
just amazing - Rosewhisker
It is a nice game.
This game, packed with a transfer pack and Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Yellow, was some of the best experiences I ever had! Classic!
This game should be 1st first of all its graphic are a hell of a lot more better then emarld it's outrages I can't believe it
Not just the best Pokémon game. Best video game ever in my opinion.
This game was so good. I honestly think this game was best. It was so fun and entertaining. The only problem was that Lusamine had a mental issue
This and Alpha Sapphire are the best in my opinion. They're also the only ones I've played but still I love them.
This or pokemon moon should be at the top. (even though I haven't played it yet)
Nostalgia doesn't make a game good. This game in reality is the best.
This game is a waste of time. For one thing to get a lot of Pokemon in it you need diamond or pearl.
Pokemon pearl and diamond in one
Not good as Pokemon Stadium, but it's okay.
Very godd lots of Pokemon
I REALLY want this game but the nintendo switch is expensive ;-;
This had really good things like take somthing from pokemon go and then catch it
The amount of moves eevee could get was amazing!
Why isn't this higher than that PIKACHU
This game is too beast the way you get to interact with the Pokemon is so unique and incredible that no other game can honestly contend. I simply just die every time I see those cute Pokemon running around
Was scrolling down and didn't even think this would be an option. I don't think it's the best pokemon game, but it is a lot of fun, super addicting. I loved this game. I think I'm going to go play some pokemon snap now.
Ah Pokemon Snap, brings back memories for when I played this as a kid. Good times
I think I wasted more of my life on this than anything else. So pointlessly fun.
Both are already on here!
I'd say the only downfall for this game is:
The starter is picked for you
For some pokemon you have to trade in order to evolve I mean what is up with that
Just shows that no matter how much polish Kanto receives, it is still a bare region - Murphdog405
Privacy is my favorite pokemon
We all love pikachu
This is the best Pokemon Action game (the others are all rpg in battle)!
Good. One of the best hacks I ever played
I can't believe there are fan-games beating this poor guy. Sheesh
You guys forgot about the ranger fans!
I really loved this game, the storyline needs at least 5 stars! I also liked it how they included some of the older characters, plus you can play wire-lessly with your friends.
Overall it's a 5 star game!
some of the best soundtracks I ever heard in pokemon... a fun action adventure with weird characters, and boss battles.
I am in love with this it is really fun on 2ds and it is free how is it not higher bro
I am really supised this isn't hgher on the list cause I love this game as Nr.4 Pokemon game :3
WHY IS THIS NOT NUMBER 1?! The story was beautiful and perfectly paved, a final boss that is just perfectly evil, twists, and the ending... SPOILERS WARNING... When my partner left, I PHYSICALLY CRIED. LETS SEE Pokemon EMERALD DO THAT!
Best game I love the music and it's so fun I pick always oshawott so cute it should be on top right now
THIS SHOULD AT LEAST BE IN THE TOP TENS! This game was so beautiful, the story made me cry, and the opening theme was a full orchestra! How often do you hear a full orchestra in Pokemon?!
WHY isn't THIS ON THE TOP? It has a great story line, a heart stopping plot twist, and a final boss that you wont forget! (Especially the music! )
Yay is da best yoloyoloyolo
Are you serious? you have to buy the balls and you can't play it in cars! It should be in number. It is easy when battling because the trainers are dumb and choose a certain type, anyways I like it.
The reason this was so low, probably because ITS NOT A MAIN SERIES GAME! (And let's try and keep it that way.)
Ugh. So boring. There's like nothing to do... main series is way better
Guys, pokemon go is even more boring than standing around in the same spot for a whole day
This game most defiantly deserves to be in the top ten, if not higher! The graphics are good, gameplay has been improved from Explorers, and, most importantly, it has a fantastic story. It starts off all happy and cute, albeit with some slightly dark undertones. Then about 2/3 of the way through the game, the story smacks you in the face, becoming very dark and turning into something you don't want to put down until you finish. It's engaging, it's beautiful, it's funny, it's heart-wrenching, and it's overall just an amazing game and a worthy addition to the brilliant mystery dungeon spinoffs. - squid_887
This game is so fun and cute!
I actually beat this game last year LOL
Keldeo in the game is cute
