Prima used to make the best guide on the market for the Pokemon games. Their guide for Red & Blue was phenomenal, and their guide for Gold & Silver was really good, if a bit aggravating (They frequently wouldn't tell you what Pokemon certain trainers had), but since then the quality has gone way down with each guide, until you get to this piece of junk.Now don't get me wrong, this guide has its uses. But it's missing a lot of information and is filled with inaccuracies, especially with the trainer lineups. It's really handy to know what Pokemon the trainers you're facing will have ahead of time, but not when that information is innaccurate. Sometimes you get lucky and the only problem is that it's the wrong graphic (which happens seemingly every other page), but other times it says a trainer has a Pokemon that he doesn't. There are also some trainers that the guide doesn't even mention, as if they don't exist. The guide says to heal and save in this one part, but it neglects to mention that you have to face a trainer in order to do that.And don't get me started on the battle reccommendations. There a few lines about what moves to use under each trainer's box, but this information is just plain wrong half the time. It tells you that a certain type is effective against certain Pokemon when it's not. To get a bit technical, if you send out a fire-type Pokemon against a Lombre like the guide says you should in several places, then you deserve to lose that Pokemon to Surf.Still, it isn't completely useless. The trainer information is handy when it's accurate, and there's a complete Pokedex in the back that has all the moves for all the Pokemon you can get within the game. The listing of items near the back is useless, though, because it doesn't tell you where to get those items, which is especially maddening for the TM's.Because it does have its uses, I rate it a 2 out of 5.
I'm getting the game Pokemon Colosseum and the Bonus Disk. As usual I get lost early in the game and Ta-Da!!! I reach for my Prima Strategy Guide and next thing you know I am playing the end of game extras. This is one Prima Strategy Guide not to be missed.
Prima's guide for Pokemon Colosseum isn't nearly as good as the other guides. However it does give tips on the pokemon trainers you have to battle. What level they are at, type, and prize money. Which you don't get from Nintendo's guide. If just the tip on the pokemon trainers this guide is good, but for everything else Nintendo's walkthrough is alot better.
Well written book that will either take you through step by step or give you a nudge in the correct direction for if you are not sure what is the right way. Easy to read and very helpful.
