Ratings and Reviews
Awesome game, needs a few updates..
This is an awesome game to play when your bored. It really does get your brain working. There are just a few things I’d like to request.
Salon: The salon is a nice to have around just for the fun of making a character. But to be honest, every look you try to make is just.. boring. If you look at some characters such as Luca and Shannon, they have really nice looks that show you their personality. Here are some things to help improve it in my opinion. #1 Be able to customize eyes. It may not sound like much, but everyone has plain blue eyes. What if you were able to add eyelashes, or different colors for the eyes. #2 Having more hair styles. Having more hairstyles would be a fun thing to add. Especially if they added more popular hairstyles, such as braids, buns, Mohawks, etc. #3 Outfits would be the best thing to add. Everyone wears a tuxedo.. why not add some more outfits? #4 Adding a couple things such as bracelets and necklaces. Just add a couple things to add to your character to make it more like you. #5 Please, PLEASE make it so you don’t have to wear a mask. Most players probably agree with this. Last but not least, #6 If you could earn items in daily challenges to wear, that’d be great
Enough about the salon. I want to request that you make it easier to get a larger variety of gems.
My last request is that you add Pokémon that are made for defending the goal post. That is all I have to say. Thanks if you read all of this XD
First of all, I have a love/hate relationship with this game. Some days the game hates you other times it loves you. The randomness of the moves hitting or not completely throws your strategy out of the window, while other times you get lucky and pull crazy stuff off.
The figure system is a classic approach to this type of board game but definitely feels pay to win sometimes. At the beginning of the game you better hope you get lucky ( like I did ) and get some good figures, if not you have to grind quests for gems rather than play the more fun multiplayer. Some figures have fun mechanics while others are frustratingly overpowered. Some of the movement abilities are crazy combined with certain cards. Lower the price of gems and it would help a lot.
The UI also needs polishing as it’s currently hunky and slow. Everything takes a while to process and even the most trivial tasks like closing a pop up takes 5 seconds. It can also be hard to find some things when you start out but you quickly catch on to where everything is at.
Overall, this is a fun stylized take on board games that keeps pulling me back in with addictive but can be frustrating gameplay. It’s a must play for Pokémon fans and is one of my favorite games, but needs work for me to strongly recommend it. Until then, it’s in the gray area of those Pokémon spin offs that don’t really go anywhere, but has the potential to be a phenomenon.
If you hate it, then buy the DS version
I know people complain about the randomness of the wheel, but this is a novelty of this game. No matter how powerful the opponent’s figures are, there is always a chance that they will miss and you can knock them out. Or you could actually STRATEGIZE and use figures that have moves such as Grass Knot* which knock out figures with 120 attack or higher, Counter which knocks out the opponent if they have 20 Attack or more, and Heavy Slam* which knocks the opponent out if they have MP3 or higher. If there were set moves that people could choose to use each turn, then the players with the best figures would always win. It keeps the game random and makes players want to play more instead of give up. And the EX figures are SUPPOSE to be hard to obtain. I know they give gems out every now and then but if you collect enough you can always get new EX Pokémon. You just really have to commit to the game. I have played this game since it released in America and there have been plenty of times when they have given out 50 or 100 gems at a time and sometimes along with free EX figures. The developers are very generous to committed players, you just have to put in the time to play.
Side Note: I have also run out of space for AI tickets since I never use them. Can they be exchanged for something else of value, preferably maybe exp for figures or Material? Thanks!
