While this game is very short, and simplistic looking in areas, it does provide a mini-game sort of feel. Racing around courses, and in hot air ballons, you must beat your other friends. This game was noted for an early appearance of Munchlax, a fourth generation Pokemon. It can be bought online very cheaply nowadays! Add it to your collection, and see a new way of playing. Hopefully, a newer, far more expansive version will be created soon.
Pokemon Dash is the first racing pokemon game for DS, and I have to say, I was pretty disappointed.
This game was nothing like I thought it would be, it doesnt even involve pokemon battles! Instead, you simply race around the course, using your stylus to help you and reach checkpoints along the way.
You can connect to other pokemon games and then a course gets created of the pokemon shape of the pokemon in your party, yet again, could have been a lot better.
There is however a multiplayer mode but I have never tried it. Im sure it is better in multiplayer mode, but your friends need to have the game, and not many people do have this game.
Do not buy this game if you think it is going to be like Pokemon Diamond or Pearl because its not! It is nothing like them!
A lot more thought could have gone into this game! Howwever saying this the grapics arnt too bad and young children may find this game ok.
Pokémon dash is the first pokémon racing game and the first pokémon game on the ds and it was quite a dissapointing start.
The gameplay itself is bad. Its just boring. In single player GP mode the only pokemony you can play as is pikachu. There are 25 courses in the gp mode in total. Spanning 5 different cups. Harder GP modes can be unlocked, which put the player against faster Pokémon.
Using a stylus, the player controls a Pokémon and races to each checkpoint. After players have passed each of the number of checkpoints in order, the course is completed. There are things you can collect to aid you such as balloons which shoot you up into the air. You can then steer towards where you want to land and then select when you want to drop. Dropping from too high a height can stun your pokemon.
Pokemon dash also supports connectivity to pokemon ruby,saphire,emerald, leaf green and fire red. When connected the game creates a course in the shape of the pokemon in the players party.
The game also features multiplayer for up to 6 players. I never tried multiplayer myself and this is probably the most fun part of the game.
The graphics werent too bad but not as good as they could have been and to be honest I dont even remember what the sound was like.
I wouldnt recommend this game unless you were a Devout Pokemon Fan.
Using the touch screen, keep Pikachu running toward the finish line by rubbing the screen in the direction you want the Electric-type Pokemon to go. The faster you rub, the faster Pikachu runs. The gameplay takes place from an overhead perspective, with on-screen arrows to guide you to Poke Ball checkpoints along the way.
