(Japanese: ポケモンXD 闇の旋風ダーク・ルギア) is the sequel to the Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness role-playing game Pokémon Colosseum for the Nintendo GameCube. The game takes place once again in the Orre region. Your character starts off with an Eevee.
The story for the game begins 5 years after the events of
Pokémon Colosseum with the introduction of a new main protagonist named Michael, who goes out to defeat the Cipher syndicate and their mysterious XD001 project.
Changes from Colosseum Edit
The game is notably different from
The main character is a kid rather than a teen.
The main character is an average trainer instead of an ex-convict.
Saving is now possible anytime instead of at PCs.
A special headset is provided for viewing shadow Pokémon, instead of having a "gifted" partner. This solves the problem of your partner getting in the way.
The main character uses a motor scooter instead of a modified motorbike.
There are special places where wild Pokémon can be attracted using bait.
The areas have been redesigned somewhat.
"Hyper mode" has been renamed "reverse mode."
Calling a Pokémon when not asleep or in hyper mode now raises accuracy. It previously had no effect.
There is now a machine designed to purify multiple Pokémon at once.
Hidden items are now made noticeable using a shine effect.
The television graphic now distinguishes between a repeat story and a new one.
The starter Pokémon is now Eevee instead of Espeon and Umbreon. The trainer now has the ability to choose what to evolve Eevee into.
The trainer is initially treated as a beginner, and is provided with basic info at the start of the game.
