A new game for the GameBoy, Pokémon Pinball is a game that allows you to play pinball with a Pokémon twist. But thats not all, it also uses new technology, a GameBoy Rumble Pak! The way the game works is as you score more points, shadows of different Pokémon appear. As you get more 'hits,' more of the Pokémon is revealed, until you know which Pokémon it is. At this point, you add the info to your Pokedex and move onto the next shadow. You also move around towns to play, starting off in Pallet and ending on the Indigo Platform. The goal is to get all 150 Pokémon.

This game isn't all that bad, but it's not nearly as good as yellow, red, and blue. All you do is get to pick a choice of two playing fields, and gets really old, really fast. I suggest you only buy it if you are a pokemaniac.

Fun at first but gets old quick.This game is for the gamers that REALY, REALY love Pokemon.

This game is so awesome! I bought it for my nephew, an extreme Pokemon fan. I tried it out for a few minutes and was hooked! I couldn't wait for him to go do something else so I could play. Unfortunately, he was only visiting me and when he left I went through serious withdrawal! I not only went out and bought myself a GBC, but I also bought this game. I am nowhere near catching all 150 but love every minute of playing. They are so cute and the game is so much FUN! I recommend it for every one of all ages! By the way, I'm 27!!! :)

I like it!
I like this game, it's fun. This game will take forever to beat, so you will get your moneys worth. Grown-ups and kids like this game because it is easy and hard. First you catch a Pokemon, then you evolve it which sometimes is rather hard to do. So if you are looking for a game the family will enjoy I suggest Pokemon pinball.

This is sorta like Kirby Pinball meets Pokemon. Although Kirby was a better pinball game overall this one still holds it's own! There are two tables (red & blue) to play on. As your score advances and you pass a few key spots on the table you are then put in catch mode where. There you'll have two minutes to catch the pokemon that appears on your screen. There are 150 to catch between the two tables and after each one is caught it's added to your pokedex. Kinda cool if you ask me. Heck I had fun playin it and I'm a jaded PC and Playstation game player :o)

This is a good game but read before you buy.
Pokemon Pinball for Game Boy, Game Boy Pocket, and Game Boy Color is a good game, but nothing too great. I think it is mainly intended for younger players because of the simplicity of it. It is a pinball game but it has the Pokemon characters included and you have to "catch" them while you are playing. The first few times you play it it is fun but after awhile it just gets boring. If you love Pokemon, then I suggest getting this game, but if you don't love Pokemon, and I mean love, and you want to get it, I suggest looking over it to see if you really want it. Overall, this game, Pokemon Pinball, is a good game, but not exactly average.
