Pokémon 101
What are Pokémon? Pokémon come I all shapes and sizes. Each Pokémon has one or two types of moves (such as Grass, Fire or Water) which it uses in battle. Pokémon also develop their own personalities, likes and dislikes – just like humans do. Pokémon and humans have learned to live and work together in harmony to create a better life for all.

Pokémon grow and evolve in different ways. When Pokémon travel with a Pokémon trainer, they gain experience from battling other Pokémon and other trainers. Pokémon can also gain experience by staying at the Pokémon daycare, but nothing beats first-hand battle experience. All Pokémon have one or two innate element types. Pokémon types reflect the strengths and weaknesses as well as the environments they originated from. For example Fire-type Pokémon are often found near hot environments, excel in fire-type moves and are weak against Water-type moves. If you know what type of Pokémon your opponent is using, it is usually a good strategy to use the opposing type. Gym leaders and trainers always use one or two Pokémon types. Like most creatures, Pokémon live in environments suited to their needs. A skilled Pokémon trainer will search everywhere for Pokémon and learn where to find different types. Some Pokémon are more elusive than others. You will need key items such as a fishing pole to catch some Pokémon.

Starting out in the game you find yourself transformed into a Pokémon! After taking a Pokémon personality test the form of your Pokémon will be revealed. Washed ashore on the beach a fellow Pokémon is beside you asking for your help in finding lost treasure. You can form rescue teams to discover the mystery around your transformation as you hunt for lost treasure along the way. Explore this fantastic land untouched by human hands as you join hundreds of Pokémon in randomly-generated dungeons.

Utilizing the Wi-fi connection feature enables players to rescue each other or send out your own SOS for help. With 16 available playable Pokémon including Chimarchar, Munchlax, Piplup as well as previous Pokémons including Pikachu, Squirtle, and Charmander the fun never stops! Keep a keen eye out for familiar faces from Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl as well. With over 490 Pokémon and non-repeating dungeons this game ensure infinite exploration. Explore long-lost dungeons or hunt down criminal Pokémon. The choice is yours in this open-ended game.

For years you've captured, traded and battled with them; now it's time once again to become a Pokémon yourself! It's time to join the adventures of Treasure Town.

Fans of the two previous Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games, Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, will marvel at the greatly enhanced graphics, new story and grand adventure in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness. For Game Boy® Advance owners, the fresh look and wireless aspects of these new Pokémon titles provide even more reasons to upgrade to Nintendo DS. And best of all for budget-conscious parents, Nintendo DS is also able to play the entire library of Game Boy Advance games.

You can also save and share your Pokémon photos with friends via the Wii message board. You can challenge them to see who's captured the best Pokémon poses!

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time excels in both fun and challenge. It certainly is much improved from the previous Mystery Dungeon games, Red and Blue. The storyline is beyond impressive, and Treasure Town has been amplified beautifully and gives the player so much to do. It also adds a really addicting and useful minigame where you identify the footprints of Pokemon. (This gives the player "Poke", the game's currency of money. So it's not only fun and gives you a break from dungeons, but it's useful and you can play it anytime.) The previous games in this series lacked that and more, making the game annoying.
There is almost no downside to this game unless you are too used to the usual Pokemon game that revolves around battling. While there is combat in Mystery Dungeon, it is brought down to a different level and is revamped entirely. The game gives you a much needed break from the stresses on constant battling in games such as Pokemon Diamond. A lot of reviews complain about the reading level and quantity. Albeit, the quantity is rough, but you should really be buying less intense games for your kids anyway. I'd recommend this game for kids ages 8 and up.
There is little difference between Time and Darkness except the availability in Pokemon throughout the game. Time has a huge advantage over Darkness because it gives the player access to the Pokemon Lucario, which is extremely popular because it was featured in a Pokemon movie and it is highly loved by the younger audience of Pokemon (especially boys.) Darkness has access to much weaker and less exciting Pokemon, such as Lopunny and Rotom, which is why Time is favored.
The storyline is very involved and really pulls the player in, while still keeping it kid friendly and thought provoking.

I purchased this game for my grandson's 10th birthday. He had already given me a "hint" as to what he wanted. After he opened this gift, he was "locked in" for the rest of the day. Nothing else mattered. The birthday party went on without him as he was off into another world. I have not played this game myself, but I am sure he considers it his best gift. To grab and keep the attention of a 10-year old, it has to be the best.

I am a big Pokemon fan, so I love Pokemon games. When I started playing Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time, I fell in love with it. I can't find one flaw in this game. The music fits every scene, the dungeons are challenging and the guild members are lovely. I never get bored with this game. The story is very interesting and even has a few plot twists. So surprising. I love all the color this game has. It's beautiful. And all of the missions keep the game challenging and fun. The dungeon designs are hard to figure out, but that's what keeps it interesting. This is easy at first, but it soon gets hard, but it wouldn't be very fun if it were easy, would it? The story is actually fast, depending on how much you play the game. I got through the storyline in a week. It was hard, but I loved it. The graphics are bright and beautiful. This game is flawless to me.

This game, along with its counterpart game, is actually much better than the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games of the past (Blue/Red Rescue Team; which were really good in their own right). I'll grade all of the awesomeness, and what they could work on, with a grading system (A+ being the best, F- being the worst):

Storyline (A-): A VERY engaging storyline! Though it shares many of the same premises as previous games (e.g. you're a human who turned into a Pokemon), you realize how much deeper the storyline goes after you play for a while: "Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time/Darkness" really live up to the "Mystery" reputation this time, as you have a lot more mysteries to solve. In the previous games, the only things you tried to find out are: A. Why did you become a Pokemon, and B. Why are nature and Pokemon going out of whack? The same mysteries stand here, but with a LOT more added: you're partner pokemon (picked by how you respond to the questionaire) has a mysterious treasure, and you try to solve the mystery of that, as well. Other mysteries, including why a Grovyle is stealing time gears, and why certain other characters behave the way they do, are also intertwined; but, those are only the MAIN mysteries! Many other smaller mysteries like: is there really a cave behind the waterfall, or does a mysterious lake really exist, also present themselves! The mysteries are endless! The only real gripe I have with the storyline is the fact that they have so much story that they fail to tie some things up. An example is with Grovyle: what happens to him after all is said and done? What happens to his friends? It fails to wrap that up properly.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By S. Ryan on July 4, 2008
This game was given to me for my birthday, and I had extremely high expectations for it. Fortunately, I was not disappointed. This game had an enchanting storyline to go along with the vivid graphics and characters. Like with Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Red and Blue, it has a sad ending, but with a joyous conclusion. Throughout the game are twists and turns so amazing that you can't be sure what to think, or who to trust.
The only problem I can find is the long cut-scenes, but I can hardly complain, as they are crucial to understanding the the whole story. Along terms of difficulty, the bosses are hard, but not not too hard. All your other opponents seem easy, but they can be deadly.
