I haven’t done one of these posts in a while and I’ve been hopping around on different games, but this is one that I love and haven’t played in a long time.
The Pokemon spin-off series, Mystery Dungeon, has always been a favorite series of mine. I love playing as a Pokemon with a special partner and exploring the unknown. The games are easy enough to play and I enjoy lurking through the various dungeons, each one being different every time you enter.
I’ve started playing Explorers of Sky not too long ago. This game is the fifth in the Mystery Dungeon series, which was released in North America in April 2009 for the Nintendo DS.
My favorite part of the games is that you don’t choose your own character. You take a quick personality quiz and you end up being a certain Pokemon based on the results. My results were oddly accurate to who I am in real life. I ended up getting Eevee.
I had never played as Eevee before, so I was excited. I love Eevee, but I don’t typically go for the normal types.
When it was time to choose my partner, there were a lot more choices than the earlier games. There were three pages of Pokemon to choose from. There were all of the starters, plus a few extra Pokemon.
I chose Vulpix. I love my fire types and I never choose Vulpix. I thought Eevee and Vulpix would make a good match with one another.
When it was time to name our team, I noticed Vulpix was a girl, so I went with the only logical name: Foxy Ladies.
Yeah, I know.
Anyway, I forgot how long these games could be. I’ve been playing for a while, but I don’t think I’m even halfway through the game yet.
I’m having fun though and it’s a great trip down memory lane.
