I just started playing this game yesterday with my friend Ge0metry v2.0 ("Fractal" is his ign) for four hours straight, and we found out that it eliminates many of the limitations of the Pokemon series. Here is Pokemon Dawn of Darkness in a nutshell:
-No save function: eliminates the possibility of catching good-natured legendaries and no gym leader-camping (saving your game in front of the leader until you beat him). Good-natured Rare Pokemon and Legendaries are now rarer than ever!
-Ability to see other players in the game with you: allows journeying with friends and training together!
-Right click a trainer to offer a trade or battle; trades can be done by one side offering a Pokemon, followed by the other side offering any amount of cash, or another Pokemon. None of that Wi-Fi Club or GTS (Global Trading System) shit.
-Regular updates to the ever-expanding world of...um, I don't know the name of the region yet but you get the point.
You can never truly "beat" the game now!
-Forum organized tournaments.
-Very friendly community; very much like ours!
-Public chat in game with moderators and "game guides" to direct questions to.
-Easy "Tab-to-PM-a-friend" system.
So what are you waiting for? Grab a few friends and start your journeys all over again in this rapidly-expanding MMORPG at pokemondod.com/forum
