To say Pokemon X is an okay game is an understatement. Then again, to say it’s an amazing game is an overstatement.
Pokemon X, along with Pokemon Y are collectively the 14th installment in the Pokemon main series, and are part of the sixth generation of Pokemon games. The game features a new region to explore with new protagonists, allies, antagonists, gym leaders, champion and Pokemon to catch and train. However, this installation takes a slight different approach in this regard from the first 5th generations. Instead of 100+ Pokemon coming into existence, there’s now less than 70 new Pokemon. While this IS rather disappointing, it’s important to take note there are now over 700 Pokemon in existence.
Gameplay is similar to the earlier games, however. In the brand new Kalos region, the player receives their first Pokemon from a choice of 3, and battles 8 gym leaders to earn their badges. Along the way, the player encounters rivals and friends to battle, an evil team (In this case, Team Flare) to fight and eventually disband. After 8 badges are obtained, the player faces the final battle: the Pokemon League, where they battle the elite four and the Pokemon League Champion. Of course, this has been the formula of the Pokemon games for years now, but it’s important to take note of the changes in the new installment as well. The largest overhaul from the previous titles are the graphics. Gone are the 2D sprites and blocky environments of old. Pokemon X introduces 3D models and new, vibrant environments as well as new orchestrated music. However, not everything is amazing with this game.
After the game’s end, there is little left to do. Previous games had new areas to explore, Pokemon to catch and a wealth of different trainers to battle. Pokemon X has gotten rid of nearly all of that in favor of more cinematic cut scenes and better graphics. Another gripe is the story. Not since Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire from 2002 has the story been as weak. While not terrible, the story lacks the development, the twists and the characters from previous titles.
In the end, Pokemon X is a great game. While improving on most parts, it falls back on some parts that could have made the game amazing. Still, it’s recommended any Pokemon fan go and pick this game up. It’s worth your time.
