It’s more than 15 fabulous years since we were first told you’ve “gotta catch ‘em all”.
A moment which sparked our sensational affiliation with these cute, but challenging action/RPG representations of the popular card trading game.
And it feels like Pokemon X could be the best outing yet and a dazzling debut on the 3DS.
The ramped-up graphical capabilities mark a major step forward for the series, while gameplay evolutions also enrich the experience.
The game features a mix of Pokemon old and new, as well as a trio of new starter Pokemon – a watery toad Froakie, a fiery deer Fennekin, and a grass monster Chespin.
Gameplay continues to focus on battling and trading and there are small improvements here, but the Mega Evolutions feature, which can dramatically change Pokemon types and battles as a result, is a real game-changer.
Take it all online and you have an awesome combo, and one that should ensure our appetite to keep catching and training these little fellas doesn’t diminish in the years to come.
