Physical attacks cause Pokemon to actually make contact, and Special attacks damage the scenery. The Pokemon themselves are rendered incredibly well, as are the trainers.

As mentioned very early on in the review, Pokemon Battle Revolution was developed for the Pokemon faithful in mind, and although you can try battling through this game with little experience the game definitely favors the more knowledgeable. Pokemon Battle Revolution has its ups and downs, but it makes for a decent way to get more out of Diamond and Pearl. All this publication's reviews.
The real draw here should be competing with other players over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connect. It only offers a few days worth of play on its own and isn't much fun at all to newcomers. Revolution is polished graphically, and great at what it is. Unfortunately, it is nothing more than a turn-based battle game.
If you're not a true Pokemon fan this really is one piece of cake easily left uneaten. While Pokemon fanatics will eat this game up, many other players will grow bored within the first ten minutes.
An adventure mode might have been a good idea. An expensive and entirely cosmetic companion to the DS games. For the hardcore Poke-maniac, the online play provides an opportunity for bragging rights and little else. It's not the breakthrough title that Nintendo set it up to be. It's a shame, as this title feels completely dated and lacking in almost every possible way and it made me want to bust out my old copy of "Stadium" and go back to the days when battling was fun.
Pokemon Battle Revolution simply isn't worth the money. Other than the privilege of being the first Nintendo Wii title with online capability, it has nothing else going for it. Compared to Pokemon Stadium on N64, it feels like a step backwards, as it feels less polished and lacks as many extras as its predecessor, which is now over five-years-old.
Playing online is, without question, Revolution's biggest feature, and one of the most disappointing. Challenge other trainers to a battle by logging on the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, using a pre-set friend list or jump into a random battle with players all over the world. The idea sounds right, but shoddy connectivity and the lack of leaderboards, medals or any type of tournament set-up doesn't do any favors for the online play.
As if mocking its own pompous title, Pokemon Battle Revolution is, amazingly, a step back for the historically reviled console Pokemon games - there's plenty of style, but less substance than ever before. For the die-hard Pokemon player, this game is a must have: For the rest of us, however, we may as well sit down and wait for the dawn of the era after this one. If you're looking for the ultimate Pokemon-on-Wii experience, you'll have to keep waiting. If you crave battles and 3D Pokemon, you may just find enough here to keep you entertained, but everyone else will find better things to do very quickly.
Let's hope that Nintendo's next venture online is a little more player friendly and not just for an exclusive club. Those who have drained every last moment of enjoyment from the DS game might appreciate it as a way to eke a little more challenge from the experience.
And really obsessive types might appreciate the fact that the announcer guy from the cartoon performs highly repetitious running commentary during in-game battles. Everyone else, though, will simply regard this as a waste of money. These battles in the Pokemon universe need to be rethought by Nintendo, because Battle Revolution shows their age.
With a surprising lack of play modes and little gratification given for completing battles, it's hard to recommend this game to anyone except hardcore Pokemon fanatics. I didn't find much to like in the game and quickly became bored. The core mechanics of Pokemon might need tweaking, or maybe even revamping, to work within the parameters of Wii's capabilities, but after a decade of essentially selling players the same game on the company's handheld systems, fans might appreciate it if Nintendo took some risks with the franchise on its home consoles.
Great graphics, lighting, and sound. Downloading Poke'mon from DS to Wii was a quick and easy. For those of you who are Loved it! If you think that, go buy one you little cry babies. It's A Great Game!
One of the most pointless and shameful cash grabs ever to disgrace an otherwise great franchise. I've played a little bit of it, and found it One of the most pointless and shameful cash grabs ever to disgrace an otherwise great franchise. I've played a little bit of it, and found it to be a halfhearted upgrade of Pokemon Stadium and Colosseum.
This game is a pile of dookie that's not worth your time or money.
