4.0 out of 5 stars an extremely original racing game July 9, 2005
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I first played this game not expecting much, from a weird little pokemon racing game that looks like you're running across old-school RPG world maps. But I was pleasantly surprised. This game doesn't offer all that much in graphics or game play, and it is a bit repetitive, but what it does offer is pretty darn good, strategic and innovative.

Right from the beginning just the way you move is innovative. Everything you do in this game is done differently from any other game out there. And I think that's a good thing, cause it's fun.

Stick with it through the first few stages. Then you will gain the ability to fly with a hot-air balloon, you'll have to learn to plan ahead a little bit for your next move, and pretty soon you'll forget about the mediocre graphics -- every move you make will have a bit of strategy to it. You can beat the other Pokemons on your first try in the easy level in most of the stages, but a real strategy fan or Pokemon fan will want to learn every little trick you need to complete each stage faster.

Don't get me wrong - Pokemon Dash is not the best game I have played for the DS. If you're only getting one get Mario 64 or Kirby Canvas Curse or WarioWare. But if you're willing to give it a little bit of time you may be pleasantly surprised by this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gotta Race 'Em All! March 16, 2005
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Not alot of people still accept Pokemon as a trilling game anymore, but this one changes it all. All you have to do is race against other Pokemon using your current Pokemon and its special abilities. If you have your FireRed, LeafGreen, Emerald, Ruby, or Sappire also attached to your DS while playing Pokemon Dash, you can play on new maps based on the Pokemon you've already caught. You might think this is some sort of expansion, but once you get the hang of it (which is pretty easy, just rub your character forward) you'll be playing it everywhere you go! You can't catch other Pokemon or trade (or do anyhting with another DS) with Pokemon Dash.

I reccommend this game for everybody, but the older group might generalize Pokemon and I dont think would want to get it.

I myself cant get enough of this game. If you like adventure games, I also reccommend Animal Crossing DS because of its exciting online feature.

5.0 out of 5 stars fun pokemon game June 23, 2006
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is so fun and you easily become attached to the game. I got it and I can't stop playing it ever since. I would reccomend it to any pokemon or racing lover. The graphics are pretty good for a pokemon racing game and its a totally different plot for a pokemon game!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great kids game January 30, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is idea for those who's kids are into pokemon, but are at a young age. The controls are simple and the gameplay is smooth, anyone can easily learn how to play this game within five minutes time. The characters are both adorable and fast. It's a shame that they stopped selling it in retail stores, shortly after it came out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really fun and different pokemon game December 16, 2005
A Kid's Review
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm 8 years old and been playing pokemon games for about a year now. If you've played a lot of other pokemon games, you'll like this game.

I just started this game, but the best part of this it is when you go up in the hot air ballon. You simply move by touching the pokemon with your stylus repeatedly.

4.0 out of 5 stars What in the world? August 15, 2005
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I just don't get why this game is getting such a low rating. It's challenging and fun- but only if you unlock Hard and Extreme modes. Also, speicial is really cool. Just put in a Pokemon RPG game pak (lets say Ruby) and your party pokemon are uploaded and you can race on them. The POKEMON. Whoo!

They even have an in-depth training mode for beginning players. Like me, beacause this is my first game for the DS. I absolutely love it. Keep em' comin' Nintendo!

1.0 out of 5 stars For the most die-hard of Pokemon fans only April 22, 2005
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Really, it's sad that for how long the DS has been out, not even a Pokemon game can be good. I'm not a huge Pokemon fan, but I still enjoy the games a lot. This isn't much of a Pokemon game at all. It has "Pokemon" in the title, but this is just a poor excuse for a racing game. It's repetative, slow, and doesn't show us what the DS can do.

The gameplay is already the first strike against the game. You control Pikachu through all the races, and the only aspect of the gameplay is... well... moving the stylus left and right to direct Pikachu where to go. That's it!

There are challenges, and there is a map. The entire goal is to pass through all the various checkpoints and win the race. Along the way there's water, lava, chasms and other things that get in your way. Sometimes, you may need a balloon to help you over some of the obstacles.

But the problem with the game right off the bat is simple. The races, short as they may be, are annoying. Especially when you get in a balloon. The map is nice, but you have to rely on arrows as you race to point you in the direction to the next checkpoint. It's nice to be able to take the balloons, but the arrows don't point you in any direction once you get a balloon. You could possibly end up floating in the wrong direction because the map is so large you don't know where to go!

The extras are even more underlying. By loading in one of the GBA pokemon games, you can create tracks shaped like the Pokemon themselves. This has little innovation actually, and the regular tracks are already boring enough.

The graphics aren't up to par with DS standards either. Vibrant and colorful, but at the same time fuzzy and lacking detail. The audio is no different.
