Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness Gamecube Video Game Review
The Shadow Pokemon from Pokemon Colosseum are back! They're showing up in the Orre region and it's up to you, as a new Pokemon Trainer, to save the day in this new Pokemon game for the Nintendo Gamecube. We review this video game to give you the scoop on what you can do and how cool it is.
What's up in Pokemon XD: Gale of DarknessWhat's going on is a gang of evil Pokemon Trainers are closing the hearts of Pokemon, including the legendary Lugia, and turning them into savage fighting machines. It's up to you to battle these Pokemon Trainers, use the new Snag Machine to capture the Shadow Pokemon, and then purify them and re-open their hearts. There's a big quest for you to go on, over 80 Shadow Pokemon to capture and tons of options for two and four-player multiplayer battles as well.
Powerful Pokemon Battles in Pokemon XD!The biggest improvement this game has over the Pokemon Colosseum video game is that it's way longer! There are over 80 Shadow Pokemon to catch and a nice big adventure to go on. The 3D Pokemon battles are also awesome, especially when you import all your fave Pokemon from Pokemon FireRed, Pokemon LeafGreen, Pokemon Emerald, Pokemon Ruby or Pokemon Sapphire.
Super Pokemon Weaknesses in Pokemon XDWell, even though there are over 80 Pokemon to catch, there are barely any wild Pokemon to catch. Plus, there are nearly 400 Pokemon to catch on the GBA games, only 80 on the Gamecube is weak. The multiplayer controls are wacky too, unless you have a GBA to plug in, they're kinda awkward.
How Cool Is Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness?There are a few things that are weak, but as long as you have a GBA Pokemon game they aren't a problem. You get a solid adventure you can play, plus a ton of multiplayer Pokemon battles with your friends. It's a good game for any Pokemon fan!
