One of my favorite games to play! I got super excited when PMD Sky enabled you to play as Vulpix, because it's one of my favorite Pokemon. My PMDO team, FireTails, was actually inspired by my PMDS team, also FireTails
I played it but never beaten it because I could never get past the kabutops boss for some reason no matter how many revive seeds I had, but I know most of the story ;v; then again it's been a while since I actually played it...
I've played and beaten Darkness, and now taking a break cuz its screwing me over by saying the game card isn't in there. I finally made it to Aegis cave. In Sky though, I kinda am sucking..erhm...or failing. I'm at Temporal Tower, and with absolutely no Reviver Seeds or Oran Berries. I think I left and went to go explore A LOT more. But I'm a bit curious about Infinity. I heard that the story is completely different, but I'm pretty sure it has the whole entire 'Human into Pokemon' thing, Time Gears being stolen, and evil Pokemon pretending to be good while the good Pokemon has the whole Universe against him..or her. For all I know, you still end up fighting Dialga. I think it would be cool if you could, like, I dunno, fight Arceus, and it would take on the form of whatever type you and your partner. I mean like, whatever, thats my opinion. But it would be cool. I mean like, what if you found something secret, and had the chance to have a legendary from the start. I remember a girl telling me that her game..glitched? I guess, but she ended up being a Darkrai while her partner was a Rayquaza. Weird, yet awesome. Hopefully, the 6th gen will be amazing. Like, Red, Blue, Darkness/Sky/Time mixed into one. Infinity can go die though.
I've played through the main stories in Red Rescue Team and Explorers of Darkness, and have almost played through the main story in Gates to Infinity. I do like all 3 games, since any one of them does something the other two don't.
I'd never played mystery dungeon until explorers of sky came out. I had seen a few commercials for it when red & blue rescue team was a thing, but had never gotten one. I completely forgot of its existence as a whole until I saw a trailer for Sky. It had just been chance that I went to purchase a new DS game for a vacation trip my family was planning, I had done no research, I just went in and picked out a game that looked good (usually). I saw it in the store and remembered how cool the commercial was, I thought to myself, "hey this game looked pretty good in the commercial, what the heck, its pokemon, I like pokemon." Bought it. From the moment I started the game I was hooked. Been playing it off and on ever since and have restarted the game several times to explore with different starter layouts. Best 40 bucks I've ever spent, worth every penny.
Now if only they'd make an open world exploration based pokemon game...
One of the best Pokemon games in existence! I prefer Mystery Dungeon more than the main line of games. I can keep coming back to it and have fun, more so than the main series. Anywho, great games, Played through Darnkess, Time, and Sky! Sky I played through several times and the others I think twice. I played the three to find differences between them. Sky was so much fun!
I played all of them, but I only ever beat Sky. Which, I actually kinda sorta used an action replay on but I can at least say the story was really good and I had fun playing it(and I'm legit playing through Darkness now so). I thought Blue Rescue Team was okay, I played that one second and I wasn't really used to it so it was very hard for me(especially Sky Tower or Pillar or whatever it was called, geeshus).
Gates to Infinity though.
I just want to slam that game into a wall(which, I'm pretty sure I did actually sell it to gamestop to get ORAS). I loved Sky, it was my childhood, and it has my favorite OST of all time, but Infinity just took those songs and murdered them. The story wasn't as good, which, wouldn't be a problem if it's predecessors didn't have better stories. It just wasn't captivating, I didn't feel close to the characters, though I did like that you could become your partner after your character dies, that's a nice touch that the other games didn't do. I did however like the gameplay, I thought it was a nice addition to add the extra parts of the dungeon, and level up your moves, but I think what really threw me off was the 3D models. I don't understand why, I can transition between 2D and 3D Mario or Sonic games, heck, I can play Pokemon Platinum and still enjoy X or Alpha Sapphire. But I couldn't get into the whole building aspect thing, I wish they had done something more similar to Red/Blue Rescue Team where they had friend areas instead of land you can make things on.
And don't get me started on the rage I feel for the exclusion of the personality quiz.
Hopefully if/when the 6th gen PMD games come out, they'll either be sprites, or wonderful cell-shaded models to match XY and ORAS.
My greatest griefs with the GtI game was the removal of the plain A button being a typeless attack that dealt damage based on your attack power, and the post story was incredibly simple and short with one hell of a curve at the Worldcore (though I liked the pseudo fourth wall break at the end, I had an honest moment of wtf weirdout). The fact that you weren't the only human called to action was a nice touch and I've always liked the theme of hope in the face of overwhelming power.
definitely weaker than time/darkness/sky and blue/red stories. ESPECIALLY THE POST STORY STORY.
Adn though they say I sho0uld be able to evolve my main two since I beat the main story, I'm still stuck and unevolved forms.
That said, I named my Team "The Faith" which fit so perfectly with the overall themes of the story that it made it feel more organic.
I do agree with GtI being the weakest in the series but not that much that I'd throw the game into a wall. XD Yes, the story is the weakest in series, I agree there. But the game itself had certain aspects I really liked over the older games.
No hunger. Thank goodness they removed that. I NEVER liked the hunger aspect in the games. All pokemon gaining Exp even if you didn't use them. Useful, yes. No one likes grinding. Evolving when you reach the right level. It was frustrating to always go through a dungeon when ever you wanted to evolve. The moves leveling up that you mentioned.
Those are things I think they did right and I hope they'll keep when/if they make a new PMD game. I personally liked the building paradise aspect. Mainly because you could get really useful items easily with it (reviver seed plant, arceus yes). And... I personally liked the graphics. yes, certain run animations look silly (coffagrigous XD) but it didn't bother me.
As for the personality quiz, I'm gonna be honest, I've NEVER went with what I got as I always had a team in mind what I wanted to use which meant I had to restart the game god knows how many times until I got the starter I wanted. So yeah, missing the quiz part wasn't that big of deal to me but I admit, it was part of the charm and I can see why people were upset that it was left out.
GtI is definitely the weakest in the series but it's not so bad that I wouldn't recommend it. I would personally recommend it to anyone who wants to try PMD games as it is the easiest in the series thus easy to get into. I hope we'll see a new 6th gen PMD and I still have faith it can be a great game.
Yeah. I mean, I liked the whole Pokemon Paradise thing because it's pretty cute, but without the multitasking in the dungeons, it gets difficult to continue. Part of me really wants to go pick the game up again and see if I can finish it. I don't think I even got halfway through the game...
