Best Nintendo DS Pokemon Games


The Top Ten

1 Pokemon SoulSilver Pokemon SoulSilver

Best Pokemon Almost all Pokemon In Here I like emerald two but for DS this is the best you can choose totodile chikorita and cindaquil you can get torchik treeko and mudkip from steven and a lot of story you can get a lot of legendary's like Lugia, Ho-Oh, Groudon, Kyogre, Rayquaza, Suicune, Raikou, Entei, Moltres, Zapdos, Articuno, Mewtwo, Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, Latios, Latias and some psuedo-Legendary Pokemon Like Dragonite, Tyranitar, Garchomp, Salamence, Metagross they have ability's Like Legendary Salamence is my favorite So Strong And Dragonite So Fast Same as Garchomp Tryranitar High on definitely and Atack so SOUL SILVER for the win=For The Win

This is one of the best games I've ever played in my pokemon history. I even have a friend that plays pokemon pearl so ima going to complete the pokedex in some days.
The songs are awesome, the gb sound thing is col, and has got one of the best grapphics I've ever EVER SEEN!

Best Pokemon game because it wasn't so easy, graphics are awesome, storyline is awesome, and it is a prequel to Pokemon Black or White which are awesome games also.

What makes this game the best is because of the variety of LEGENDARY & RARE Pokemon's you're able to catch throughout the game & even when you beat the game there is so much more you can still do.

It is HANDS DOWN the best game with its opposite Heartgold.

You can walk with your pokemon!

2 Pokemon Platinum Pokemon Platinum

It's just way to epic for words. You've got the reverse world, you're able to capture Giratina, Dialga, and Palkia. Team Galactic has more to do with the story so you can beat the hell out of a bunch of grunts. And you can find Pokemon from both diamond and pearl. In my opinion, this game should be ranked higher than five. - lugiafan2000

I do like heartgold and soulsilver a lot but in my perspective platinum outclasses them with awesome new pokemon amazing changes and much more you get such a fun and good challenge it's just to fun
(diamond was the first game I ever played but then I lost it and got platinum and loved the changes and distortion world)

I've played this game and its superb. The storyline is fantastic and the Pokemon are more than up to scratch.

I played through this game 17 times and put 736 hours into it and I loved every single second of it. This is the best Pokémon game I have ever played and has brought me more joy in life than any other game or thing imaginable. All of the starters evolutions are solid as I prefer a tank torterra. With earthquake and wood hammer that beast unstoppable. But honestly everything about that game is amazing. The storyline and team galactic is my favorite crime team in my opinion. The final battle with Cyrus in the distorian world is simply incredible. And finally Cynthia. She is the greatest boss/championship battle in Pokémon history with a very well rounded team were her garchomp reigns supreme. Beating her the second time with her level 78 garchomp is a thrilling battle and worth playing the game alone. Overall the greatest game I have ever played.

3 Pokemon HeartGold Pokemon HeartGold

Made an already awesome game even better..

gold will always be my fav

I don't really see why this version is not as good as soul silver. Both of them should be tied for first place.

And it's the exact same as pokemon soulsilver

4 Pokemon - Diamond Version Pokemon - Diamond Version

I know Diamond the best! It seems to have much more fun packed in it and it is a little bit better than Soulsilver. If you are trying to decide which game to buy first, I would recommend Diamond first, then Soulsilver.

It is very very exciting diamond is the best better than
White you should vote it that this is the best.
You even get arceyes how cool is that man. Wow man

I think its better because it is the only game taken in place in sinnoh

it amazing

6 Pokemon - Black Version Pokemon - Black Version

Its awesome graphics. In Pokemon battles I love the way it zoom on all the Pokemon when they make a move because in other Pokemon games, its hard for the newcomers to know what Pokemon makes a move in 2-4 Pokemon battles cause its all confusing.

Pokemon Black does not get enough cred. No Pokemon game had ever wandered into the morality of using Pokemon to fulfil your dreams before this one, and it did it perfectly. A wonderful reconstruction of the Pokemon series as a whole.

I have never played this much awesome game in my whole life because it has the most enjoyable graphics, awesome song the most faboulous song is the champion's song it's starter pokemon's are tepig, snivy, and oshawott but I recommend you to take tepig when it evolves into an Emboar then it's like undefeatable.

Why is this #6?! It should defenetly be number 1, it is on my list! It was my First Pokémon game, perfect graphics, perfect settings, perfect story, perfect everything! I choose Oshawott, which evolved into a level 100 Samurott, sadly, I lost my favorite game, so it's no longer:(

7 Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky

Mother of god, I cried, laughed, and sympathized with this game. This is one of those "unnoticed" games (and by that I mean not advertised often) that just really gets to you. Not to mention that this game basically NEVER ends, so in all the other games when you have nothing to do, with this game you have EVERYTHING to do. Ever dreamed about being a Pokemon? Well dang, just get this game! It made one of my not-so noticeable Pokemon my favorite Pokemon (Grovyle). So many dang plot twists too, you'll never know what will happen next.
Just... Get this game. By all means, this is the greatest Pokemon game in history. Nothing beats it.

When you ask somebody to name a Pokemon game, they mostly say Red, Blue, or another core series game. Most fans don't even KNOW about the Mystery Dungeon series. They're really missing out. This game made me sad, like when you have to go back to the human world, or excited, when you defeat a boss you've been struggling on. I can't put this game into worlds. It's a masterpiece. It's so underrated it's not even funny. I can't believe a game like this is so underrated, even though it's amazing. I love it so much.

Love it so much. They should make a whole movie out of that game. When you start to dissapear at the end, I cried. I'm proud I did!

This game is the best! When I found out about PMD series, I forgot the main tytles and anime itself. I was playing PMD. I started with PMD red and that was fine, but... Oh my gosh ds version... It's the best one.

8 Pokemon Black Version 2 Pokemon Black Version 2

It is just like black but what make sit more fun is that it is harder to train the Pokemon and that there are a lot of towns so it is confusing but fun to wander around the unova region two years later

I believe that black and white to should come first because you can get all Pokemon in the world

Love this
Can't wait to get it
I want this game the most
Although I already have loads of Pokemon games I still would like to get this
As I love Pokemon

Very nice game

Best pokemon game ever better graphics then heart gold and soul silver better colours too. Love that you can go underground for spheres and even fossils that bring pokemon to life! easily my favourite pokemon game.

Pokemon Soul Silver is better but it is cool how you can get loads of legendary Pokemon but in my opinion the music is not very good it is alright but not the best Pokemon music ever I prefer Soul Silver.

This is one of the first Pokemon games I have played and it is still my favourite

This game had a revolutionary change in Pokemon games from now on wether it be mega evolution or the beautiful 3d graphics and sprites or even the wonderfully heartwarming and touching storyline

This is for 3ds we should not count but its wow!

This is for the 3DS, but this game rocks!

14 Pokemon Ranger: Guardian Signs Pokemon Ranger: Guardian Signs

It made many improvements over 'Shadows of Almia'. I Personally love the Pokemon Ranger series, and found this a welcome addition to the series.

In my opinion "BEST GAME EVER! " I have played it over and over and it never gets old!

BEST GAME EVER but gets struck in between the save and recharge machine

This game has been out for quite a while now and you gotta love the tall grass and the pokes who live in that very grass that is indeed tall. A new poke ball called the fluke ball. Makes the pokes think you're trying to catch it and than it disappears so that they relax and out of nowhere it appears again catching the pokes off guard. And grocery salmon

How are you liking a game that's not officially released
