Grand in scope and design, Pokémon Y is the Pokémon game we’ve been waiting for, an excellent entry for newcomers, an incentive to return for old fans and something refreshing for the devotees.
I have a confession to make, my last Pokémon adventure took place in generation IV, wherein I took my Infernape to glory from his humble roots as Chimchar in Twinleaf town all the way to capturing Dialga and beyond. I wouldn’t say that the experience was unenjoyable per se’, but it certainly wasn’t the magic I was looking for. It wasn’t that it wasn’t compelling, the three year wait between Sapphire and Diamond certainly built my anticipation for the title, but that it felt very much the same, with semantic features added that failed to change the game in any distinct way. 9/10
