My Thoughts On Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

So I just beat the Pokémon League in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and I just wanted to share my own thoughts on these remakes.

These remakes are great remakes and aren't lazy at all. I believe the chibi overworld stuff is alright and not bad at all either. And for those of you that say the games are easy, they aren't at all. My Pokémon team were each about 10 levels higher than the Pokémon League's Pokémon teams. They were a hard time to defeat them and I still lost to Cynthia's Garchomp the first time I battled her. Then in the second time I battled Cynthia, I defeated her. So no, these games are NOT EASY, at least compared to some of the other new Pokémon games.

So yeah, I have enjoyed these remakes for what they are. These are faithful remakes like Gamefreak said and I saw the reviews and they were good reviews from what I have seen, so I don't understand why some people hate these games as much as some of the other new Pokémon games.

So what do you think of my thoughts of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl? Let me know if you liked my thoughts on these games or not.
