copying this from my Explorers of Time review... for the most part
a marked improvement over Red and Blue Rescue Team in every single way. the gameplay is what you'd expect in a Pokemon rougelike - get to the next floor, beat other Pokemon on the floor, and maybe find some treasures along the way...
but the story is what most people come to this series for, and this story is.... pretty good!! there's some high stakes and the characters are all great, even if I have some personal gripes about poor explanations throughout the story ("what's the Dimensional Scream? well in the future we used it to find Time Gears. oh it doesn't work that way in the present? well maybe it works differently here" with no elaboration or interest for the rest of the game).
anyways the Sky stuff. most of the mini-stories are about a bunch of characters that I'm really sure you cared about right guys, you really wanted to know about what Sunflora was doing in Spring Cave right,,,,
but the last one alone is honestly worth the slog. really completes the Explorers game storyline in a satisfying way. the little Shaymin village and the jukebox are also really nice additions. I really can't recommend its sibling games when Sky just goes above and beyond
still have to dock half a star for STILL doing Team Raiders dirty. if I didn't make a Gardevoir OC I probably would've harbored a grudge against Gardevoir for the rest of my life over the Team Charm episode
