The version we played began with a series of questions designed to quiz the player on their personality attributes and subsequently chose a starting Pok

The control specifics within battles will be pretty familiar to Pok

To split up the multitude of dungeons throughout the game there is a large over world map to be explored, including a very hand Town Square area. Here you'll find a post office that can be used to gather Intel on new rescue missions, a bank for storing loot you collect on your journey and a Link Shop that is used to combine certain attack moves with powerful results! Players have to pay for this luxury and would be well advised to do so, we foresee this element being one of the deepest in the game increasing the depth of combat to a large degree. Finally there is a marketplace that can be used to buy and sell various items as you see fit. All in all the Square serves primarily as a hub from which players can set off to find new dungeons and yet more helpless Pok

Nintendo need to get this and ranger out soon or it could be released to close to Pear/Diamond whic wouldn't be good for these games.

Anyways the game looks great going to pick it up, it just looks fun to play, nice preview.

Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clich. They were the statement and the definition."

Awesome preview matey! Looking like an interesting lil spinoff

I've dabbled with the Japanese GBA version of this and really enjoyed it - very different to the norm for Pok

Trying to think of a witty signature after 'Hacker-gate'...

Cheers for the comments people, shaping up into a fine title and is bound to sell by the bucketloads in Japan (as well as over here hopefully).

Looking forward to a final RPG review from the Raz-mister. :D
