Pokemon Showdown, a video game review

A video game review by: Lee Sonogan

Battle simulator, Multiplayer


So addictive and fun to play. This free to download program has a lot in it. With the Pokemon 3DS graphics, it has over 700 Pokemon in it. Random battle people online in various of modes. Learn how to play by joining one of the programmes many chat rooms and news.

It has more modes than you would expect. Random battle singles and double matches. In competitive battles there’s a ranking system. Ubers, OU, UU, RU, NU, LC and more in that order. You will need to learn these ranking systems if you want to play other than random battles. In team builder, you can filter all the Pokemon through these ranking systems.

Then there is team builder. Make a team of six to fight in any of the modes. Your teams that you make can be saved and played in any ranking system mode. Give you Pokemon the moves, items, abilities and EVs to make the most balanced team you can. Try to have at least one of each of these for Pokemon stats on your team: Physical attacker, Special attacker, Physical defender, Special defender, All rounder, or Specific effects.

All Pokemon fans should check this game out. You miss the old N64 Pokemon Stadium days? This is a game for you. Pokemon is no kids game. There is many tactical skills you will need to learn to fight the other skilled trainers out there. I recommend this to all Pokemon fans
