Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Waste your money on imaginary clothes

I despise this game. I have never seen anything this addictive to children under the Pokémon brand before, but this is next level. My normally reasonable child has turned aggressive over buying skins. Let that sink in for a moment. He is desperate to earn money to buy imaginary clothes, and in a few months he will lament his wastefulness. But right now he has become downright aggressive and inexplicably angry about this game. It is like a gambling addiction. I genuinely suggest that you avoid this cynical cash grab of a game like the plague. We never experienced serious behavioural issues around gaming before this Pokémon offering, and the experience has been downright disturbing.

Interesting Game play suitable for kids with PG

Gameplay is fun and illustrative of pokemon battles , no violent depictions and scenes messages are currently limited to positive dialogue so far. Appears to have option to "chat" virtually which could be risky as we are unable to monitor and navigate what goes on there . Apart from that , simple game which supports teamwork and strategy .

Easy to play/use
