It's an alright pokemon game but not one of the best.
on August 27, 2014
I have played pokemon since the beginning (blue progressing onward). I stopped playing at platinum. I decided to pick up the newest one and said why the hell not. Well. . . I just really don't see the difficulty in it at all granted it is a pokemon game. I feel as though previous generation of pokemon games had more of a challenge factor to them than Pokemon Y. This game is just easy.
Cons: Hardly any use of HM's outside the field of battle, TM's are unlimited (seriously why unlimited it takes the challenge out of the game in my opinion), the story is boring/pointless doesn't really inspire me to keep playing the story part but it's pretty much linear so you have to, and this new generation of pokemon aren't the greatest just blase. (Not a purist by the way first generation wasn't the greatest either. I actually like 3rd generation/4th generation.)
Pros: Berry system is awesome. Easier to grow what you want and pretty lenient on growing them and getting to them once they blossomed. The transportation between the roller skates and bike is great! Like switching between the two. The battle system is really smooth other than when you're fight five of them at one time (unless you have a move like earthquake that hits all five). The cities that you go to are truly unique in their own way. I actually like the towns in-between that don't have gyms. Gives it more of a real world feel to it. The online features are awesome! Probably my favorite feature is the virtual trainer and the little play with your pokemon deal (sorry forgot name). Sorta brings back the feel of pokemon yellow where you got to play with your pikachu!
Overall it's not too bad. If you like the online aspect of this game being able to play with other players around the world, trading, and battling get this! If you're looking for some of the old school fun well then I wouldn't get it.
