We actually had this game on reserve and my son awaited the phone call to tell us his copy was available for purchase from Game Stop.
It was on time and did not disappoint. My son loves this game.
The latest Pokemon game features battles with gym leaders, and people who want to battle so Pokemon can be captured and evolve.
When Pokemon are captured, you can play other games like enter contests and practice their skills so they level up and increase their health.
What is so special about this game? It is part of the Pokemon Diamond and Pearl series featuring legendary pokemons as Dialga, Palkia and Giratina.
Also available with the game (for additional purchase, of course) was the HUGE Official Pokemon Guide Book featuring every pokemon ever with their evolved forms. I admit to having fun persuing the book myself.
