  1. One of the better Pokemon spin-offs out there, this is also one of the longer-lasting WiiWare games around.
  2. It's difficult to find much wrong with Pokémon Rumble: everything it does is done quite well, and one can really only take issue with the things the game doesn't do.

    My favorite game out of the PKMN franchise! All of the Pokemon, fierce or cute, are morphed into petite, adorable Pokemon wind up toys! AfterMy favorite game out of the PKMN franchise! All of the Pokemon, fierce or cute, are morphed into petite, adorable Pokemon wind up toys! After that, you battle different Pokemon at different stages, recruiting some as you go along. This was so fun to play! I really, really hope that the sequel would be as good! Full Review »

Indeed it is repetitive, if you don't like hitting people, & nothing else, but isn't that the point of these types of games? The Pokemon look good, using models from my Pokemon ranch to save money. But the Pokemon are missing the shine texture, like they do in Rumble Blast, they just look, kinda awkward. When you kill Pokemon, you get a set 1, 10, or 100 money coin, depending on the level, & what the Pokemon is. When you kill a pokemon you have a chance of capturing it, but its random, so getting a pokemon that you really want, is really hard. You can also get pokemon by buying one from the store, which is ALSO random, you never know on what pokemon you'll get! Finally, you can ALSO get pokemon by sending of a certain array of pokemon, which just SUCKS! But to combat that, you can only hold a certain amount of pokemon. The moves you can buy are also random as well. So in short, everything random in this game sucks! There is only 2 generations of pokemon in this game: Gen.1, & gen, 4 or 5, i'm not a pokemon expert. To get all 3 legendarys, ie: Palkia & ect... you need to get certan pokemon, but the main one is Dragonite, the HARDEST pokemon to catch, and you need him for all 3, and to get mewtwo, you need to sell all 3 of the legendaries, so if you want to complete the "Pokedex" you need to catch dragonie 6 TIMES! Trust me, he is NOT easy to catch AT ALL! & to top it all off, when you see him as a boss, there is a SLIM chance you will catch him. But, if you like this game as much as me, you won't mind doing the same level over, & over, & over again, but the same 6 levels, yes SIX for EVERY rank, & EVERY difficulty for that rank will get repetitive, you you like to nitpick.
