Remember all those Pokémon games you used to play on your Nintendo Game Boy like Fire Red, Leaf Green, Ruby and Sapphire? The fun continues with DeNA’s new Pokémon Masters.
As the player, you start off with Pikachu as your companion, and from there you create your designated team, made of familiar faces like Brock, Misty and new characters who compete in the Pokémon Masters League by collecting five badges.
The game is full of nostalgia for older players as you battle Pokémon Masters on an artificial island called Pasio to become champion. It is also exciting for those who are not familiar with previous Pokémon installments, as the battling system relies on strategic thinking and choosing your elements correctly.
Players need to upgrade their relationships with their Pokémon by fighting in order to complete later stages.
The more levels you complete, however, the tougher it gets to evolve your relationships, and the need to spend real money on the application increases. As players leave feedback on these shortcomings, I am certain further updates will incorporate better features to flesh out the gaming experience.
