Pokemon series do not have to be introduced to anyone. Pokemon Conquest is one of the last Pokemon games published on Nintendo DS before the focus switching onto Nintendo 3DS. The game developed by Tecmo Koei studio mixes action with tactical elements. The story is placed in the popular anime’s universe, but it also includes samurai warriors. The players needs to defend the Ransei region from the ruthless army of Nobunaga, its leader.
In order to defeat Nobunaga, a mythical powerful Pokemon is needed. However, it can only be summoned when all the arguing kingdoms are united to fight for the same cause. The game is divided into various chapters. In each of them, we control a different Warlord with specific stats and attributes. Thorough them all, we need to conquest seventeen kingdoms, and having done that, we must finally stand up for ourselves and face Nobunaga and his army. The combat system is complex and interesting. We fight in turns using all the Pokemon we have already managed to gather.
The maps we play on are varied and the tactic we need to apply highly depends on them. As we conquest the kingdoms, we gain access to new Pokemon which enables us to create new strategies. Unlike in the classis Pokemon game, every creature can use only one move, usually representative for a particular species. Depending on the Warlord we are playing as at that moment, the creatures can even have different powers than the normally would. There are a few modes in Pokemon Conquest. We can play the main campaign or a quick battle with the AI, but there is also the possibility of an encounter with another real player over the internet. After completing the main story line, the player can also play thirty two varied special episodes, each featuring one of the Warlords and having an offbeat objective.
