Detective Pikachu Review

Detective Pikachu is a strangely refreshing departure from the Pokémon formula that I cannot help but recommend to those looking for a change of pace, even if it is remarkably easy. This isn't a regular Pokémon game, but the franchise is strong enough for experimentation.

Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby

These are both fantastic games. They look great in 3D and play very well. They're games anyone can pick up and lose track of time with. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never played a Pokémon game before or if you’ve played every one of them until now. If you have any interest at all in Pokémon this game will surpass your expectations. Hopefully Nintendo continues to allow us to explore the former regions because they are certainly worth revisiting.

Pokemon X

There's a good game in Pokemon X, and fans looking for another game near-identical to the ones before it likely won't find issue with a lot of the dusty trimmings and transparent battle system. If you want to get into into the new stat rebuilding features and grind out tons of easy battles to prep for high-level online multiplayer, it's never been easier to do so. But for all else, the game's excellent visuals belie the frustratingly old-fashioned design. RPG folk can find better times on their 3DS.

Pokemon Black and White 2

After Black and White, in many aspects their most ambitious game, everyone expected a Pokemon Grey to follow shortly afterwards, but the company decided that after putting so much story in Black and White, it would be better for them to pick up said story and continue it from a new perspective two years later. Unfortunately, the sequels don’t capitalize on this as well as they could have, instead delivering a shallow story with no grey areas and putting in place a series of changes that actually get rid of what made the originals special.
