“Gale of Darkness is one of those games that will use its claws to grab you by the gonads until you complete it.” N-insanity – Metacritic review

Being a Pokémon master/expect, this video game needs to be talked about more. Keeping all the competitive elements from the first game, this sequel improved on the issues that it previously lacked. Matched with a more intriguing plot, this game has a lot to offer than the average RPG. (Role Playing Game)

This strategy RPG Pokémon game is known for its more competitive double battle system. And the AI uses many double team manoeuvres against your Pokemon. In recent times there’s a hack out there on an emulator that has new Pokémon imported into the game with new 3-D animation. It’s the only true way to judge and find out about it yourself as GameCube emulators are the only way to record, live stream, and play it right now.

I highly recommend this video game to all Pokémon fans of all kinds because it is a must. The type of storylines in the Pokemon Colosseum franchise is what I want in the new Pokémon Sword and Shield games and you should too. Finally, the legendary Shadow Pokémon Lugia is in my top5 favourite Pokémon. Below is the final paragraph in my review of the first game of this underrated Pokemon series.

This game revitalized my love for Pokemon and reminded me why I’ve been a fan of the series from the first time I played Pokemon Blue/Red. 20+ years of the same old formula recycled ad nausiem left me weary, but going back and playing this game was a nice treat. It’s one of the few pokemon games that deviate from the wild pokemon/gym battles/team rocket/elite 4 formula while still being a true blue pokemon game. The evil dudes in this game have turned a bunch of pokemon evil and are seemingly selling them on the black market. Your job is to catch all these pokemon change them back from their evil state. You do this by carrying them around in your party and battling with them until their evil meter (in place of the EXP bar) is reduced to zero. Essentially, when you encounter any trainer with an evil pokemon, you steal it from them! Weaken them like you would a wild pokemon and then toss a pokeball. There are indeed wild pokemon in this game, but a small number of them and you’ve got to jump through some hoops just to encounter them. I’ve got nothing but good things to say about this, definitely give it a shot if you haven’t. – James Rupert – (5/5 – Google Reviews)
