[edit] Background

Pokémon XD: Gale Of Darkness is a new RPG game that uses the same engine as Pokemon Colosseum. This time you start with a LV5 Eeevee and the story revolves around a giant dark Lugia. The hero of the story is equipped with a snag machine just like in Colosseum and also has a device that allows him to see dark aura's around certain Pokemon.

[edit] Gameplay

As with Colosseum, XD centres on Dark Pokemon, Pokemon who've had their hearts sealed away and now use Dark Skills to attack you and your Pokemon friends. You play as a nameless main character who adventures with his little sister, Mana. Your quest is to free the Dark Pokemon from their misguided trainers and open their hearts back up. To do this, you'll make use of an eye piece called the "Aura Searcher," which identifies Dark Pokemon by their characteristic purple glow, and your Snatch Machine, which plucks the Dark Pokemon from battle. Overall the gameplay is very reminiscent of Pokemon Colloseum.

[edit] Features

  • Experience intense 3D Pokemon action in a full-scale RPG!
  • Snag and purify a wide variety of Shadow Pokemon! Unravel the mystery of Shadow Lugia and overthrow Cipher's evil plans.
  • Master your two-on-two battle skills against Cipher's toughest goons.
  • Import Pokemon from your GBA Pokemon games and watch them battle in full 3D.

This game is also known as Pokemon XD: Yami no Kaze Dark Lugia in Japan.

If there’s one thing Pokemon Colosseum taught us, it’s that it’s better to have quality over...
