Alright, let's get the first thing out of the way right here and now. This guide doesn't have a proper Pokedex. It's got a list of all the Pokemon you can catch in the game, but not a full blown Pokedex that'll show you all those really cool stats and moves list. By now it's come to be expected that guide companies will release a Pokedex later on, as Nintendo Power and Prima have plans to do so. I just wanted to get that out of the way. If you're buying the guide simply for a detailed Pokedex, you won't get it here, and you won't get it with the Prima Guide either.

Outside of that, however, the Nintendo Power guide to Pokemon Diamond and Pearl is one of the best ways for getting you adapted to the game. It's very well put together, and very detailed (sometimes too much for its own good). The guide begins like many of them, with all the basics there are. And this guide is full of them. From telling you about all the starter Pokemon to getting you adjusted to the new Wi-fi network, it's all here. Most gamers will know about most of the old stuff, like how to battle and the type chart that Nintendo Power has used forever, but if this is your first time through a new Pokemon Adventure and you want to know how to go about it right, this guide does provide some good tips. Pokemon experts who've been there for a while: these tips are natural to you by now. However, it does help to look into the guide and dwell into the Wi-Fi connection stuff that's located here. This stuff really is new, and at first it can be complicated.

The walkthrough, however, is almost perfect. Each section begins with a checklist of things to do. There are two checklists for each area.

It covers up to battles with Elite 4 and Champion. There is a lot more to explore and catch after that. One could say that the game becomes more interesting after beating the champion. Get a lot more information from online guides. Search for "pokemon diamond faq" using google.

For the part it covers, the guide is reasonably well organized and helpful.

this item was great, and would have recieved a perfect review, but it had a few minor damages. there was a little bit of water damage on the side, and a small indent on the cover, but it was fine in every other way. the book was very helpful, it includes countless pictures detailing where items are, and many helpful hints and other things that even I did not know, and I have almost memorized the wiki for pearl at this point. it includes information about which pokemon are a good idea to catch, and why they are good to catch as well. it includes in-depth descriptions of almost anything you could want to know, including the accessories for contests, a list of all of the items and where you can get them, a list of all of the pokemon and where you can get them, a list of the abilities and what they can do, and so on. it has a walkthrough section that you can go through to check for items you may ahve missed if you have already finished the game, and if you are struggling with what to do, it leads you through what to do very nicely. the only thing I couldn't find was the post-elite four game section in detail.

all in all, this produt was amazing except for the slight damages.

When I had originally bought Diamond and Pearl, I had fun with it for a day or so... then I got stuck. A lot of my friends got stuck on the exact same area because we weren't sure to go and my friends that weren't stuck tried every suggestion, but couldn't remember or didn't know what I had missed. I tried online walkthroughs and they all said, "this will happen next!" but didn't explain what to do for that to trigger even though I did all the previous steps beforehand. I bought this as a last attempt and it did the job! I wasn't stuck anymore after that and they have a lot of useful information for getting through the game.

My only complaint about it that other guides have that this doesn't is that they tell you what each trainer has (pokemon and level) and also this doesn't come with a full Pokedex, but I always reccomend bulbapedia or some other similar website for an accurate Pokedex for ALL Pokemon.

Definitely invest in this though if you want a detailed walk through!

I love pokemon. i got this book to help me get through it. diamond and pearl are the only two i havnt beat yet. so i bought it to help me out. i got it before the date that they scheduled it for which is awesome. the condition of the book was great. there was nothing wrong with it at all. no pages were missing, there where no mark in it from any pens or pencils or markers. no pages where bent. in the back there is a a part for a pokedex and it tells you the pokemon in order and where you can catch them. this book is great and in great condition. i recommend that you buy it if you need help.
<3 pokemon
