Hi im JAck_Maddocks and I just got a new Wii. Im getting PBR for Christmas and I want to find out what the controls are for it. Like witht he cursor do you have to move it to select the move? And what is the B button used for? And the rest of the controls like the + - 1 and 2.
Thanks if you reply

Ummm, Jack, you do know that the controls are in the instruction booklet? This is a pretty silly thread to make, considering you will find out when you get the game...lol

I think what he wants to know is if the controlls fit the game, and is the wiimote utilized well.
I wouldn't know, I havn't got the game yet.

The controls are point and click. You can pick if you want to use the A button (the big clear button on top) or the B button (the trigger-like button on the bottom) to click.
That's about it, really.

So there's no particular execution of a move(with the wii remote) to do an attack?I'm also quite interested :D

If Nintendo included some random motion for each attack, the game would soon get tiring and become an even more despisable game.

Are the platformers anything like the hanheld games?
Run in grass > Encounter pokémon > Battle it > Catch it/Defeat it/Wash out

What I meant with that post was that PBR is kind of a disappointment, to be honest.

But is it running with the same princible of the handheld games?
And what makes it dissapointing?
Have you got it/played it for prolonged ammount of time?

No, it's just battles this time. You battle, by pointing at attacks using the Wii Remote. And I don't own it btw, but I've played it for a considerable amount of time.

What's disturbing about it is the lack of a plot, there is no story mode. It is only useful if you want to see your pokémon in cool graphics. I'm sure Nintendo will soon release a new game with a plot and more interesting gameplay , give them a couple of years :P

Sorry I cant help, I wont know till xmas when i get my DS,Wii, and all the new gen pkmn games....They finally got me to toss my sps.....and i spent 10 dollars on a link cable to use for a year......well ill tell you controls on xmas if you want but wont know till then although I remember the commercial saying you could use your DS as a controller.

PBR is just a battling game. There is no plot and it isn't like the handheld games at all. No running in the grass to catch wild Pokémon. It is very much like Stadium. There are no mini-games, though. You do get points for winning your stadium battles and can use these points to score TMs and items that you can use in Diamond and Pearl via the Mystery Gift system. One of the items you can get is Leftovers.
The Wiimote is used to select moves in a point and click fashion. There's no wild waving of the controller to do moves or even to throw your Pokéballs.
If you have Diamond or Pearl you should copy your Pokémon to PBR because playing on a rental battle pass is a bore. Note: Your Pokémon don't gain experience. If you level them up in Diamond or Pearl, you'll have to recopy them to PBR. It is fun to do DS battling where you use your DS as a controller. Also, you can copy your battle pass to your Wiimote and go play at a friends house with your Wiimote and Pokémon.
If you enjoy battling and want to see your Pokémon in better graphics, this game is for you. If not, then you should wait until Nintendo comes out with a better Pokémon game for the Wii.
