Its a decent guide and is very informative however it only explain half the game and on the front it says volume 1 so I assume they plan on making another one for the kanto region.
I did quite like the maps and pictures which were exactly the same as the game where as some previous guides (like the pokemon platinum guide) were not like that as they didn't show people on them and some other important items.
However it is not as good as the origonal gold and silver guide for the origonal gold and silver versions.
All in all a decent guide but could be made better by including the other region. if it had done that probably would have given it 4 stars
