The Ultimate PokÃ©Mon adventure for Nintendo Gamecube arrives on 18Th November 2005
30 Aug 2005
30th August 2005 - A dark wind is sweeping across the land, corrupting everything in its path and threatening the people of Orre! Shadow PokÃ©mon are everywhere and the fate of this land now rests squarely on the shoulders of one hero, a spiky haired young boy, and his PokÃ©mon companions. Taking on this exciting role, can you save the Shadow PokÃ©mon from the clutches of this evil organisation?! This will be your mission when PokÃ©mon XD: Gale of Darkness launches on the Nintendo GameCube on 18th November 2005!
The sinister CIPHER organisation from PokÃ©mon Colosseum is back! But this time they are determined that these super powered Shadow PokÃ©mon will be unpurifiable. These PokÃ©mon, have been captured by evil Trainers and had their hearts closed... they are only able to do the bidding of their evil masters. And with all new and even more fearsome Shadow Moves, these PokÃ©mon are swift and effective in battle. These unique moves, including Shadow Mist and Shadow Half aren't available to standard PokÃ©mon and are devastating to all PokÃ©mon types . You will need to have your best battle-honed skills on you when you come across those Trainers who send two Shadow PokÃ©mon into battle.
But that's not all, CIPHER have created the Ultimate Shadow PokÃ©mon (eXtra Dark PokÃ©mon), Shadow Lugia, who is specialised in fighting and has exclusive moves. CIPHER believe that Shadow Lugia can never be purified...
As the game's hero, you set out on an epic journey, along with your PokÃ©mon companion Eevee, to "Snag " and "Purify" these Shadow PokÃ©mon. Shadow PokÃ©mon are unlike any others and are not catchable using normal PokÃ© Balls. However, your character's mother works at the high-tech "PokÃ©mon HQ Lab" supporting the brilliant Dr. Krane, who has developed equipment specifically to combat the Shadow PokÃ©mon menace.
Once snagged, a Shadow PokÃ©mon will still remain under the dark influence of CIPHER, so to truly set it free the player must purify it. There are several ways to do this. Thanks to Professor Krane who has been developing the Purify Chamber there is a new and faster way to release these PokÃ©mon from their Shadow state. The Shadow PokÃ©mon is placed inside the chamber along with up to four regular PokÃ©mon to help open its heart again. The more compatible the type of PokÃ©mon that you place in the chamber around the Shadow PokÃ©mon, the faster the purification process takes place. After purification the PokÃ©mon forget their Shadow moves, but special moves, which they wouldn't ordinarily have, become available to them.
PokÃ©mon XD: Gale of Darkness is a full RPG game in Story Mode, allowing players to experience the excitement of hunting for PokÃ©mon in a vivid and colourful 3D world as well as snagging and purifying Shadow PokÃ©mon. And not only Shadow PokÃ©mon...! It was thought that wild PokÃ©mon didn't exist in the barren wasteland of Orre; but at PokÃ© Spots players can capture wild PokÃ©mon by leaving special food to entice them. In addition, there is the Battle Mode where players can also enjoy multiplayer fun in 2 and 4 way battles.
Along with the two main modes, PokÃ©mon XD: Gale of Darkness features exciting new mini-games not seen on Nintendo GameCube since PokÃ©mon Stadium. One of these is a battle based mini game called Battle CD, which lets you experience virtual battles in various different situations. But there's a twist! To clear these battles you have to fulfil certain conditions like defeating an opponent within a certain number of turns. You even get to fight Legendary PokÃ©mon!
PokÃ©mon XD: Gale of Darkness is also fully compatible with Game Boy Advance PokÃ©mon titles like PokÃ©mon FireRed, PokÃ©mon LeafGreen, PokÃ©mon Ruby and PokÃ©mon Sapphire, as well as the forthcoming PokÃ©mon Emerald. Using the Nintendo GameCube Game Boy Advance Cable (sold separately) human characters from these games can be imported to PokÃ©mon XD . After finishing the game players will also be able to trade PokÃ©mon between PokÃ©mon XD and the Game Boy Advance versions.
PokÃ©mon XD is shaping up to be the home console role-playing extravaganza that PokÃ©-fans have been begging for! PokÃ©mon XD: Gale of Darkness launches on the Nintendo GameCube on 18th November 2005 at the estimated retail price of around 60 Euros.
