Default Is PBR worth my $50?

Hey, I got a Wii for Christmas, and I'm gonna get Pokemon Ranch. I was thinking of getting Pokemon Battle Revolution. Should I spend my 50 dollars on it or should I buy:
A Gamecube memory card
Gamecube controller
and Pokemon XD/ Colloseum.

Help please.

I suggest you get the latter. seriously, there's more promise in the last one and if you do the last one, then you can get other games for the gamecube as well and play it on there.

i'd wait for PBR.

Hm... I haven't actually played Battle Revolution, but I've done my research on it, and it has gotten alot of lukewarm reviews. It's all battling, and no storyline like Collosseum. If I got it, it'd be mostly for wifi battles.

Pokemon Ranch sounds like a good game although it primarily serves as storage, and the reviews reveal that too, but there's a downside. If you put Pokemon in the game, only the OT can claim them back; meaning you can't restart the D/P file you transferred them from and take your Pokes back like on Pokemon Box for the Cube.

I like Collosseum though, I can tell you from experience that it's a good game. It has an interesting mix of both battles and storyline. So, I'd get Collosseum, but that's just me. ^^'

There's also sort of a good side to getting PBR as well though. Various Items and TMs that would normally be hard to obtain or you can only get once in Pokemon D/P, you can get on PBR fairly easy(EQ TM, Choice Items, Evo Items, etc).

From a person who owns it: Don't buy it for $50. You can find it for at least 20$ Cheaper on Half.com or Amazon. It's better to pay 35$ and wait a week than spend $55 on the game.
It's a fun game, but you could beat the whole story mode in a couple hours, and that's really ALL there is to the game besides the pokes you get from it, and your character. But the wi-fi is fun, apart from the Uber noobs that you come across occasionally.

In PBR the only good part is Wifi Battling, but noone wifi battles anymore. I would get Colloseum. It is much better.

I use an Action Replay for that stuff.

So let's say I get the cube stuff, XD or Colloseum?

Well, there are two Pokemon that are exclusive to Collosseum and XD.
Ho-Oh and Lugia respectively, along with the Legendary Beasts in Collosseum and the Legendary Birds in XD.
It really just depends on your personal liking, but since you can get Articuno, Moltres and Zapdos on Fire Red/Leaf Green then migrate them to Dia/Pearl, I'd recommend Collosseum.
But then the only way to get Lugia is to get XD Gale of Darkness... Like I said before, it depends on your personal liking, lol.

Let's disregard the Pokes for a moment.

Which has a better storyline?

I would try to get Battle Revoulution on E-Bay so it's cheaper. Since you hack I would get it.

I don't hack. Period. I don't waste my life getting a TM.

It's not hacking, it's a preventer of wasting your life-er.

Only when you use it to HACK. You know, like make every pokemon appear shiny? Or always do a one-hit KO? That's hacking. Getting TM's isn't 'hacking'
