Top 10 Pokemon DS Games


The Top Ten

1 Pokemon HeartGold

The game is fantastic. If you are looking for a new Pokemon Game, then pick this up. If you are having trouble with your starter, I think it is based more about your personality. To start off is Chikorita. Chikorita is a Grass Type Pokemon that will give you a hard time in the game. So if you're looking for a challenge, then choose Chikorita. If you wanna make the game even, then choose Totodile. And of course, if you want an easy and quick adventure, go with Cyndaquil. Chikorita is the less overrated, kinda cute though. Totodile has a really high Physical Attack. Remember, it's Physical. So don't teach it the things you think are super strong like Surf, and Water Sport, and those fancy stuff. Cyndaquil is awesome, but it can't learn that many moves. I hope this helped you but now, enjoy your game.

This game is the best and it should be number one on this list of games the best game ever there are a bunch of legendary pokemon that you can catch like ho-oh, kyogre, groudon, latias, suicune, entei, and raikou. There is no doubt about it this game is the best

Come on I got an emulator... Played this game all my school friends love it too its just that I have no money to buy a ds but this game is sweet as it's the same story as the books gold and silver

So much content! This game is fantastic and extremely nostalgic. Great graphics, music, and exploration. With two full regions and almost every legendary in the series I wholeheartedly recommend this.

2 Pokemon SoulSilver

I feel like this game is underrated and really shouldn't be. I could ask every single person that enjoys the pokemon game franchise and ask them what was your favorite game out of all the games and they would all say, Platinum, Diamon, Heart gold, but never ever Soul Silver. This game has amazing graphics, soundtracks, and storyline. Like what can you ask more from a Pokemon Game - K3vin

My first Pokemon game on the DS. Mind blowing graphics and can re-visit everyone's two favorite regions, Kanto and Johto. Loved how they improved Pokemon Trainer Red's battle theme.

I liked this generation because its the only game you can go to 2 regions and it still has the same pokemon theme fill to it. While 3rd gen and up slowly go away from it but there still good games.

Its beautiful in every way and the songs in it... You could listen to them all the day

3 Pokemon Platinum

I love Pokemon platinum, its having awesome Pokemons and graphics. The storyline is very interesting.

I've played through Platinum about 4 times and I have loved it even more each time!

I like this game the best because you can GO UPSIDE.

I love this game. I have 5 gym badges!

4 Pokemon White

This Game is Awesome... Plus I really love the mascot for this game That being Zekrom It looks so badass Way better than Reshiram

Pokemon white is the best pokemon game ever because there's so much more pokemon and for the first time there's a fire and sicic pokemon and the graphics are so good and you can actually catch a pokemon from there dreams and go to the entrelink forest and catch it and you can go into other peoples world

Great story line, and still playing even after beating the game ha. A lot of extra things to do after beating the Pokemon league

One of my favorite games. I had some good memories playing it. - PurpleHarambe

5 Pokemon Black 2

Pokemon Black 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 Black). This game is AWESOME!

Awesome game, even better than Platinum. AND THAT'S SAYING A LOT.

Cool game. Cool Pokemon. cool everything

I think pokeon black 2 is the best, my favorite pokemon is black kyrem.

6 Pokemon Black

It rocks. It is the same region as white but Reshiram is stronger than zekrom and plus there are Pokemon in black that are not in white. Even the graphs are pretty snazzy and good. It is d best game ever. The only game that can beat it is black 2

7 Pokemon Diamond

Great story, and I prefer the graphics over the newer stuff, for some reason :S. - Lem

Not fair heartgold and suol silver remakes don't count much blue rescue team remake of red rescue team this should be before

The best. Ever.

8 Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team

Keeps me entertained for hours! Recruiting legend arises, good storyline, amazing post storyline, Hoenn, Kanto, and Johto starter, this game has everything!

9 Pokemon White 2

This game is not COMPLETELY like black 2 there are many AMAZING Pokemon you can catch in Pokemon white 2 that you can not catch in black 2 this game should be about, 2nd or 3rd because it is a really amazing game, my whole neighborhood has bought it and all of them love the game, They all love the Pokemon that you can catch in this game that you can NOT catch in black 2, So this game is well, not the best ever but still a really good game to play these kind of days.

This game is fantastic and I am so glad that they made it!

This and black 2 are the same games Both are amazing

This one is myfav

10 Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of the Sky

This game has it all! From the music when Dialga is near the end to the sad times when Grovyle waves goodbye. The stimulated spirit and friendship you and your partner held to the rest of the guild and their adventures not to even mention the post story missions, emotional value and sheer epicness. A small part of me went grey when I say this was 12th and had no votes. This deserves to be 1st and it must be first but WE must make it 1st!

This game has an amazing soundtrack and storyline. How many people cried at the end?

This is way better blue rescue team!

Greatest game of all time
