Light Platinum is the gold standard that other Pokemon fan games aspire to. Right from the beginning, lush spritework and a custom story are designed to draw you in. As one of the only speakers of an ancient language, your character unveils a prophecy that could destroy not just Zhery -- your region -- but whole world, if it falls into the wrong hands!
It isn't a particularly original story, but it's solid and fun. There's plenty of side quests and other events to keep you going, and the game contains Pokemon up the fourth generation. Every last legendary Pokemon is also obtainable through in-game events!
