honestly, no.
It is carpel tunnel waiting to happen- you pretty much have to Grand Prix style racing (5 or 6 races) and yeah it kinda hurts the hands. And each race is meticulous and yeah..
I bought it when it first came out (so when there only a handful of ds games) and it was pretty sub-par then

Sure!. Pokemon Dash has a lot of hand movements. Since you have to keep moving Pikachu to win. So it is a good way to get moving and get grooving!.

The game is an ok game. If you have R/S/E/FR/LG you can create maps of the Pokémon on your team.

Unless you can get it for $15 or less, don't waste your time with Dash. :/ I really didn't enjoy it very much. It's a VERY short game and there are so many other games on the DS you should get before even considering it. While you can make a map of any Pokémon on your RSE/FRLG team, the maps are all very similar and it gets boring fast. There's little replayability and since I beat the game (the day I bought it), it's been sitting on my shelf ever since.

I agree with what Erica said. Just don't waste your time; I've tried everything to try and get back into it, and it just...didn't work out, so I gave it away, and even the person I gave it away to never played it. Huh. But I don't blame him, the game is just...uninteresting and gets that way pretty quickly. x_x

Don't buy it. It's horrible and gets boring after 5 minutes.

DON'T DO IT MAN!

Really, I played it for five seconds when it came out and it reeked of awful. Get Mario Kart DS or save up for Pokemon Platinum.

It hurts the hands. And arms.
And it gets boring fast.
Thats why it sucks for me.

Nah, don't bother. It's very repetitive and short. Also, you will probably end up with loads of scratches on your DS screen since it uses the stylus so much.
You're probably better off waiting for Ranger 2 to come out.

if you can be bothered in the first place.

Yeah, spin off games suck.

Movies too.

This is off topic but... spin off movies like Star Wars: The Clone wars are
what bring a bad name to anything good, like Star Wars, or Pokemon!

Whoa. I'm a strong debater. I should do this more often... :laugh:

But MD's different. It's da bomb, and it is fulfilling to play. Unlike Dash. Or Ranger, in my opinion. I don't like Ranger. :-l

@_@ Wow, this amassed 17 posts before I even got to it.

We already have a thread about Dash--specifically one asking whether or not to buy it, where these posts could be helpful. Thus I'm gonna merge this thread with the other one. Next time, just post in the other thread instead of making a new one.

No. I don't encourage you to buy it. It has no special feature to get for Pokemon DM/PL/PT, I would rather buy Pokemon Ranger both 1&2(The US version of second Pokemon Ranger will be release next month, BTW).

for one part it's a bit like nintendog as my friend said (she ever downloaded it..) you could stroke pikachu and pull at it's ears but de running is boring and your arm gets quickly tired :/

Dude, come on, quit being an immature arse. It's just someone's response.

As for this game, I recommend it only if you're into the more knock-off style games. It's very casual and I honestly believe it would have fit into another Pokemon Channel/Stadium as a new mini-game.

I think:

It is a really CRUD game and that they should not make spin offs like this.

I like the movies though.
Don't buy it unless you want torture. I sold mine.

It was good as an early DS game, though it was more of a touchscreen tech demo. However, if they were to remake it with WiFi play and being able to play as any Pokemon then it might be a great game.

Yeah Dash sucked. It could have been good if they put more effort into it, its like Nintendo didnt even try at all. Complete waste of money.
