POKÉMON: X | Nintendo 3DS XL Review

As we edge closer to Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, I’ve taken on another Pokémon game. My anticipation for that movie is high, I won’t lie.

RELEASED: October 12th 2013
DEVELOPED BY: Game Freak
PUBLISHED BY: Nintendo & The Pokémon Company

Also, on the basis of ‘not lying’, I should also say that this is actually the fourth Pokémon game I’ve tackled since trading in for my Nintendo 3DS. The first game I played was Omega Ruby. Then I played Ultra Sun. I also dabbled with the re-release of Yellow, before the first trailer for Detective Pikachu urged me to explore the Kalos region in Pokémon X.

As such, there were a few facets of the Pokémon game series introduced in X that I had already experienced in Omega Ruby and Ultra Sun, and so playing those games first may have affected my overall opinion of X.

POKÉMON: OMEGA RUBY | Nintendo 3DS XL Review

RELEASED: November 28th 2014
DEVELOPED BY: Game Freak
PUBLISHED BY: The Pokémon Company

It’s been a while since I played a Pokémon game. When I was a kid, I started on Pokémon: Yellow – I had the special Pikachu Game Boy Colour and everything. I instantly fell in love with the game, having already become a huge fan of the anime series. Later, I would move on to Pokémon: Crystal, which I also thought was an amazing game. By this point, I was also a bit more savvy about how everything worked. Although I did have the chance to play Pokemon: Ruby, I missed the chance to actually own it myself – instead, I got the remake of Generation I, Pokémon: LeafGreen. Some years later, I would get Pokémon: Pearl on my Nintendo DS. I thought Pearl, which debuted in Generation IV, was a great game, but it would soon be outdone by the Generation II remakes, Pokémon: Heart Gold and Soul Silver. In my mind, that was the apex of Pokémon games, and after playing through them, I fell out of sync with the series, moving on to other things.

More recently, however, after getting back in to Pokémon GO! I decided I wanted to revist the core games. I bought myself a second-hand Nintendo 3DS XL and Pokémon: Omega Ruby alongside it, curious as to how the games had progressed since my youth.
