Following the previous versions’ success of the Pokémon series, The Pokémon Company developed a new role-playing and adventure game. It was Pokémon Colosseum. The game was first available by Nintendo for GameCube on November 21, 2003 (in Japan). It was not until a year later that North America (March 22, 2004) and Europe (May 14, 2004) were able to experience this game.
The gameplay has many improve
The feature compared to previous versions is that players can collect wild Pokémon to use. Instead, you will have to fight other trainers to steal their Pokémon. The game takes place in a large desert area, Orre. The main character is Wes (former member of Team Snagem). He is responsible for releasing the Shadow Pokémon (which are regular Pokémon, but transformed by Team Coding). To distinguish between Shadow Pokémon and regular Pokémon, a character, Rui will accompany you.
Basically, players will start with two Pokémon, Espeon, and Umbreon. You will have to participate in many different battles to upgrade Pokémon. Similar to many other Pokémon games, players will have Pokémon Mart to purchase support items. The matches will take place in a turn-based format. Each match allows the player to summon two Pokémon to the field. A trainer can bring a maximum of 6 Pokémon to use.
Collect pokemon to fill your Pokedex
Besides, participating in many matches allows you to meet the Pokémon Pokémon to collect. Note, Shadow Pokémon are very difficult to use, and they do not have stability. They can resist the trainer’s orders and fight on their own (this is Hyper Mode). Therefore, players have to purify Shadow Pokémon after collecting them. This takes place after their purple vitality bar is reduced to zero (which is done by participating in battles). There are two ways to purify. The first is to take them to the Celebi temple in Agate Village. The second is to use a special item, Time Flute. However, these items are rare, and players have to collect them to use.
Pokémon Colosseum has design with 3D environment and brings many beautiful battle skills of each different Pokémon to enjoy. In particular, each match will take place with two views, a panoramic view to observe the battlefield and a close-up view when Pokémon uses combat skills.
