      Nice to see Plusle and Minun are the partner Pokemon. And Leader Hayate looks cool.

        It seems there is both a boy and a girl as the main characters for this game. I wonder if you can play as either...

          this looks preaty cool actually. it seems that alot of peoples dreams of your pokymon follo0wing you outside it's pokeball has come true. i wouldn't be surprised if pokemon dimond and pearl had these same kind of graphics.

          that kind of grahpics would be ok with me for D & P, but i can imagine tons of people flamming this forum saying stuff like"where the f*ck is the D*mn 3D!?!?."

          oh well.:'(

            It says "male/female main character", so I assume you can play as either one of them.

            I guess it's going to be a little similar to R/S/E.

              This is pure speculation, but it seems to me from the videos that when you "capture" pokemon as a pokemon hunter instead of as a pokemon trainer you don't get to keep them? Like you just capture them with that device by drawing a circle around them, and then you use them for whatever you may need them for, and then they are let loose again? Or do they just run off the screen? It's an interesting concept I'll admit, but if they are let loose everytime you use them for something it could get tedious. I hope there is a good variety of things you can use the pokemon for if that's the case.

                Um, this isn't really speculation, since the official site says you "borrow" the Pokemons individual power. And the movies seem to depict this too.

                I personally think the scene where the Pokemon uses their powers to break rocks/burn mountains of straw is long and annoying.
                I hope there are options to turn this off.

                    It seems like a really good game. I'm definetely getting it. I just don't understand all the crazy rings running around the Pokemon.

                      You run the rings around the wild Pokemon to capture them.

                      But the wild Pokemon (and its attacks) touching the rings while being drawn will break it, and drain the Poke Stylus's "energy" (batteries?)
                      This is whats explained by the video...

                          I've also lost all interest in it as you have to start with either plusle or minum which I really don't like, the crummy run rings around pokemon to catch them thing is a good way to use the stylus but isn't that enjoyable and doesn't sound that difficult. and how are we meant to battle with each other, if you actually battle in the game which theres no evidence of.

                              i like the old style pokemon!!!!

                              you know, R-S-E where just right, all they should do is make new items, pokemon, maps and characters.... and enchance the graphics, maybe a little bit!!!!

                              but i think the game looks good!

                              BUT!!

                              I LIKE THE ORIGIONAL!!!!!!!! ( But i will still buy it :-P)

                                    True, it has a "um... hm... I'll wait" feel to it. I better buy it after reading reviews and stuff on 2ch or something.

                                    But then, I had the same feeling for Pokemon MD, but it was worth the cash, so yeah, my predictions are usually off.

                                      But If you also see the Mystery Dundeon clips they look way better than the Pokemon ranger clips. Overall in Mystery Dungeon you get to play as a Pokemon. So you might want to change your mind. If I had a choice of wheather MD or Pokemon Ranger I will go for MD

                                        I already own MD... but I did go through a 5 minute dillema on whether I should buy it or not. And this was in the game store.

                                        But yeah, the site for MD seemed to use more "appealing" screenshots.

                                          i reckon once you've cuaght them you can use them by calling upon them...then once you've used it you can call upon it some other time.

                                            But in Pokemon Ranger you don't really catch the Pokemon. I really can't explain it but you can only use that Pokemon once.

                                                  i know you don't have to but I love doing it. Anyways Pokemon trozei is not odd, it actually fun very cool puzzle game why because I have. But i will give Pokemon ranger a chance. The graphic do seem to lok good as Pokemon Dungeon. But does anyone have the full story on it.

                                                    Just hope if they do any more Pokemon games for the DS, they keep it similar gameplay-wise to the existing GBA versions but graphically like Pokemon Ranger and Mystery Dungeon.
