I don't think PBR is a waste of money at all. For what it is, it's a great game. I enjoy playing it a lot.

I really hated PBR too. I was kinda hoping it would be like colosseum or XD.

You probably don't have WiFi. The main point of Pokemon Battle Revolution is to battle in 3D online using your D/P Team on a custom avatar that's supposed to reflect you in real life. Personally, I LOVE Pokemon Battle Revolution once I kick the pace up with my speedy teams in D/P actually made for multiplayer battling. Find a fun opponent on WiFi, and a good match will occur long as he/she does NOT use any ubers.

A good idea is to make a decent team in D/P, have PBR detect that and copy the pokemon onto the game, and then try some colloseums, earn some items and TMs, finally then battling online.

Like what Yoshiko75 said, it's fun for what's it's worth, which is 3D competitive battling. If that's not for you, you shouldn't of gotten it anyways.

oh noes i wasted my monies!!!!!!!!!!!!

Meh, I thought it was an alright game. It sucks that they took out the minigames from Stadium and made all the battles Double Battles (which are gay- I can't use Surf or Earthquake), but overall, I liked it.

Still, do you think the capability of battling online (present in D/P too) is worth $50? And, as you said, because of the randomness, you can find hackers or ubers, which is not fun. I used a badly-IV EV trained team and I didn't have to pay attention to the battle. If you know the minimum about battles, you'll win pretty easily. That is not fun, sadly. And, as far as I know, you are allowed to use your own ubers to abuse the colosseums.

I defeated the game with my UU Team. It was so boring. Now there is Pokemon Ranch that is just a step up from Pokemon Box. Seriously, give us another RPG Style like XD or Colosseum. They were far better.

I agree that PBR is a step down from Stadium and a huuuuuge drop from Coloseum. I find the opponents too easy (with the exception of Sunset Coloseum) and unless you have Wi-Fi (and I don't, sadly) there's not a lot to do.

I don't hate it, it's just a wasted oppertunity.

I brought PBR for £35. I like the 3D pokemon, but everything else....meh.
At least the pokemon rewards are good (Surfing Pikachu :D)

To tell you the truth. I didn't really enjoy Pokemon Battle Revolution that much. It needed more story, the story is half the fun. I was really looking forward to it and was quite disappointed.

It is not a waste of money if you can enjoy the game.

You do realize that you're talking to a bunch of "lolzurz pokemon rules" kind of people? Not an insult to you pokemon lovers. People are going to buy the game even if they don't like it (which is rare-ish), just to have it.

the only thing that is a leap is the graphics (Pokemon Staduim 2 has the same graphics as C/XD) I have tried it.

The Rewards are good, and the reason people should have bought PBR is to play your DP Pokemon in Full 3D.

Battle in D/p still very boring :|
In PBR , the graphic and music is so amazing . I think if you have DS to upload your Pokemon to PBR , you will see how great it is :D

Pokémon Battle Revolution is far from being a waste of money. You just bought it for the wrong reason.

The whole point is to battle against other people using a team you raised yourself. It also doubles as a sort of Battle Frontier for the Sinnoh Region, though Hoenn's real Battle Frontier was more difficult. And the challenges grow ever more difficult as you challenge the Colosseums again and again.

And no dissing Pokémon Ranch, please. We could definitely use the extra storage, and it's fun to watch you as a Mii interact with your Pokémon.

That said, the graphics are my only real complaint. They should have worked harder there. I mean, look at Lucario in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Now look at him again in this game. They should have worked much harder.

I bought the game abou last week. Graphics aren't the best. Most of the 1st 2nd and 3rd are just stuck on there from previous pokemon games >.< They never really constructed it to look in depth. Theres no shadings and the pokemon look like polygons.

I completly swept the whole colleseum battles with my D/P pokemon. But the good part is the Wifi Battle. Without it the game wouldn't be as good. I also use it to test out my pokemon teams against each other.

If you have Wifi this game would be more interesting. Also if your into competetive battling and testin pokemon ETC.

There's an important difference that makes PBR excellent, pkmn are finally attacking pkmns!!! No more strange lights that fill the screen and magically appear at the other side of the battle field and hit the enemy, in PBR you can actually see how the pkmn attack the opponent, maybe is not worth the 50 but at least it produce fun

In my opinion, PBR is a waste of money if:

1. You don't have WiFi
2. You don't have a DS with Diamond/Pearl

The reason being is that the game just wouldn't be much fun without those things (for me anyway). I really love transferring my Pokemon across and seeing them in 3D, and the Mystery Gifts are pretty cool too. I also love the fact that you can customise your own trainer (I've wanted that in a Pokemon game for a long time) although I think they should have added more character model options rather than just 6...

WiFi is addictive (even without friend codes). Sometimes I come across teams that literally make me giggle... I ended up battling with someone who had a whole team of Sharpedo and was dressed as a pirate (their opening phrase being "Arr! Pirates are coming!")... it really did make me laugh out loud.

So yeah... I get a lot of fun out of PBR and to me it's not a waste of money at all ^^

The only reasons I would buy PBR is:

-Soul Dew can be bought (yay!)
-Pikachu with Surf and Volt Tackle + Lightball (I already have the LB its Surf I care about)
-Petaya, Starf, Lansat, and the elusive Liechi Berry (You can also get the Enigma Berry but I am gonna get it from transferring one of my friend's E-Reader berries over to my Diamond, he would not mind he mooching since he is not really into Pokemon anymore...)
-Beat the crap out of random people (unfourtanetly hackers can own you by participating on this)

I wish Nintendo would have stop smoking marijuana and put an RPG mode in PBR...
