Default Is Pokemon Colosseum Worth It?

I am debating whether or not I should get Pokemon Colosseum. Is it worth buying? What is the game play like? Is it like a big Gameboy game for Gamecube?

It's an awesome game, but I would really only recommend you play if you plan on transferring the Pokémon to LeafGreen, FireRed, Sapphire, Ruby or Emerald, to transfer to a generation four game. It's got Pokémon I guess you could say are rare, since each of the Pokémon have a move (along with XD: Gale of Darkness) that they normally don't learn. The gameplay is pretty much like XD, and Battle Revolution when battling, if you have either of them. When you move around, it's pretty much a 3D version of the Pokémon games. You get that extra dimension, and the music is rather catchy.

I am considering purcahsing it because of the fact that you can transfer your Pokémon to Ruby, and Sapphire. As for the second post in this thread, I am not sure that you can obtain Pokémon in Colosseum and transfer them to LeafGreen, or FireRed, I'm pretty sure that LeafGreen and FireRed came out after Colosseum, but you can transfer to LeafGreen, and FireRed from Gales of Darkness

I would say it is. Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness is double the fun of Colosseum, but I will still definitely recommend Colosseum because it is fun and one of the few 3D Pokemon games to have a story.

Lol...In that case, do you think Gales of Darkness is better, or Pokemon Colosseum?

I personally prefer Pokemon Colosseum to Pokemon XD. It mostly depends on which specific Pokemon you are looking for. On an additional note, both games can trade with any of the Generation III GBA games, you just have to complete Celio's network machine in FireRed and LeafGreen,

Unless you've been playing Pokemon since an early age, and don't like change very much its worth the Ł7 or so they charge for it second hand. I just never finished it though, because I always deleted the RIDICULOUSLY OVERSIZED SAVE file to play SA2B or something.

Thats really the main problem with this game, it takes up an entire memory card.

When I got my copy all those years ago, it came with a free memory card.

Yes, it is a good game, and its sequel is just as fun, if not better. (Sequel is Gale of Darkness).

That depends on the memory card. I have a Black one, a white one, and a large clear one I found on the floor when I worked at the theatre. The black one has Colosseum on it as well as a ton of other games, the white one has Colosseum on it, and the clear one does. It doesn't take up that much space on larger cards. If you play with a gray one, then yes, like every game, it will take up all the space. Gray ones are very small.

Anyways, I fully recommend this game. It's got an incredibly unique plot, a wonderful region unlike any other even to this very day (it's the only desert based one heavily influenced by technology), and the concept of just purifying Pokemon after catching them gives a whole new reason to go heavy on the battles and training.

XD Gale of Darkness is a superb sequal that I also recommend getting. It takes place years after the first one and adds new locations to an already amazing region, increasing it's brilliance. I say get both, but make sure to play Colosseum first. You don't really miss anything if you play the second one first, but it makes gameplay so much more fun to go in order.
