I decided to check out what this Pokemon craze is all about. I wanted an easier game to work on so it was suggested I review Pokedex 3D. After all a free game on the Nintendo 3DS should score really high. Right? Maybe it would with someone else. The main theme in Pokedex 3D is to look at the different Pokemon in 3D. Notice how I said look at? That is about all we could do with them in this game. Which makes me wonder if Pokedex 3D is even a game at all. It is like an app. An app for those hopelessly addicted to Pokemon.
I have to admit I have never really understood the appeal to Pocket Monsters. Especially when some of them in Pokedex 3D look demonic. Being able to rotate around them in complete 3D is a nice feature. Just be careful how much 3D effect you use. I found that looking at the screen from an off angle can trigger a migraine. That was not a pleasant experience.
I am not impressed with the sounds the Pokemon make in Pokedex 3D. I would turn the sounds off when using Pokedex 3D because they did not sit well with me. There is a wealth of information on the monsters in this fictional world. More on that will be coming up.
Every week we could get three more Pokemon for Pokedex 3D. Which means there is little reason to do anything with this app more than once a week. Of course some may see much replay value since it can last so long. I found that it was very easy to forget Pokedex 3D. Especially when real life things of importance came up. Sure Pokedex 3D is free, but you have to spend your time with it. How valuable is your time to you?
The main control in Pokedex 3D is moving around your collection of these little monsters. I got bored with this, and found it did not always behave in a way I was expecting. Although it could have been I forgot since it was a once a week thing.
promotes the religious belief of evolution. This is in the text of
numerous Pokemon. It baffles me why Nintendo would want to promote that
belief. Especially after they have been educated to the disproven nature
of it in so many respected circles. I am also concerned with how
addicting this franchise is. Parents need to be very careful of apps
like Pokedex 3D on the Nintendo 3DS.
