I initially skipped gen 5, but I'm glad I came back to check them out because they collectively are my favorite so far. The story while still pretty simple at least attempt to give the characters some personality and motivations. The region is great, pretty large and has a more urban feel. Lots of new pokemon, though it's a shame they leave out old ones until post-game. It's another Pokemon game, but it's a really good one of those.
Score: 8.0 (Great!)
