The game controls like most Pokemon Games with a Semi-Top down view on the player using the circle pad or directional pad to move,A is used for events such as talking, and accepting choices, B is used to run and cancel various events such as talking to people and now is capable of stopping any non-trainer or storyline speeches instantly instead of having to go through each piece of text. X remains the Menu Button while Y functions as the Key Items button which can select one of 8 chosen Key Items, unless these Key Items have been assigned by the player they will simply be the first available 8 Key Items in their inventory. Start now functions as the options Menu allowing quick access to the Options, Select now functions as the a built-in Camera (when obtained in-game). and R have two functions; outside of battle they can be used with the directional pad's Up Button and Down Button to move in the diagonal directions, during battle they can flick through the various stage cameras, some of which are fixed others move freely.

The game follows the general RPG, Turn-Based game of the previous Pokemon games however due to the ability to pick which Gym's the player wants to battle each route is assigned with a variety of Pokemon attached to it, though throughout the game these Pokemon may change or evolve in some instances after defeating the Champion all Pokemon that were available in those routes can be caught at high levels and in the appropriate evolutionary form.

For the entire game no physical appearances of past Pokemon characters appear however messages and mentions of them or the previous regions are included, the first example that occurs in-game is if the player investigates the Professor's Desk they will find 6 Notes each one a message from Professors; Oak, Elm, Birch, Rowan, Juniper and Sycamore.

The game also includes previous features common in most Pokemon games such as Day and Night systems, Daily and Weekly events, In-Game trades, hidden paths not initally accessible and common climate types. The game does not contain Pokemon Contests, Pokemon Musical, Pokestar Studios, Battle Subway, Battle Fronteir, Pokemon TV or Battle Chateau. Instead containing a hybrid between Contest and Battle called Pokemon Tour.

Pokemon Tour functions as a sort of gauntlet of Pokemon battles however not all are convential battles some are Artistic, Touch Screen Based or use of the basic controls. A single gauntlet will include in order; Battle, Styling (Appearance), Basic Controls Game (Berry Hunter or Ring Jump), Styling (Dance), Touch Screen Game (Berry Cutter or Balloon Battle) and Battle. The gauntlet only permits one Pokemon per user and can be played with up to 7 other players locally or 11 with Wi-Fi.


This Generation introduces 200 new Pokemon, a large proportion of which do not evolve, this has speculated some to believe that a future generation will have more pre-evolutions and/or evolutions.

Perhaps one of the most diverse in weather, terrain, climate and ecosystems, Trivoarne is estimated to be the largest single Region in all of Pokemon history with over 100 routes by itself and over 50 cities/towns it contains also over 20 caves, 5 forests and 12 oceanic routes (note due to the availability for choice in the Gym Leaders fought no HMs are required to reach them as HMs will be used to help the player progress through parts of the story and reach Victory Road.

The Weather varies from across the region as the ends of it a both semi-arctic, the North-Western coast is Mountainous, the Central Western area is mostly plains with some minor Forests, the North-Eastern area including its coast is highlands mostly, the central area is tropical with patches of rainforests. The Central Eastern area is mostly Beach and Tropical however features large brine caves and huge palm forests, in contrast the South Western area is mostly Forest spanning the coast and central parts mostly. The Central Southern features the only volcano in the entire region making it mostly volcanic weather despite how close to the South Semi-Arctic region it is.
