I think that people comparing this game to pokemon all the time is wrong, as this is a unique game that deserves more attention than it gets.
the gameplay is new, and i will admit, evolving the spectrobes may be a bit reminicent of pokemon, but it is still new and a whole different game.the graphics are better than most games currently on the ds, and unlike some others it runs well aswell.
It is exciting to finally find a game that uses every interactive feature of the ds, and this is what makes the game so fun to play-it really shows what the ds can live up to, which seems to be alot. The only problem i have is that no one knows where to buy the trading cards in the shops, but i can live without them.
over all, ithink this game is deffinately worth buying if youre looking for something new, exciting and intuitive.
