Great for kids; not bad really for adults!
August 09, 2004

Picked up the Japanese version and of course, my son loved it (8 at that time). Seemed to like it much better than the CCG (I of course welcome that due to the extortionist strategy of all CCG makers!)

Here's how it goes - you play a trainer trying to be a master trainer, start your journey with a pokemon of your choice (sorry kids, only one can get pikachu!) and make your way thru all the towns you have seen on the video/tv series.

Every place you stop, you will be challenged by a different pokemon. If you win, the defeated pokemon joins you. If you lose, your pokemon becomes injured and needs to be healed.

You are faced with many choices- which pokemons to challenge, which routes to take (routes lead to different types of pokemons surfacing), how strong you become (determined by how many pokemons you win)- until you decide that you have enough skill to challenge the existing master (unknown at this stage).

When you are ready, the master trainer is revealed and the final challenge is made. win and you become the new master trainer. Lose and you get booted back, giving others a chance to win.

Variation to the game is in the form of cards which you may acquire along your journey. These have good variety from healing potions to additional hit points, etc.

Kids will probably love this betwen 6-9, and play it again and again (there are several expansion sets with more varieties of pokemons, powers, etc), and at least, parents wont find it too simplistic to entertain their kids.
