Team Gemstones: Domhanda Domination (known as チームジェムストーン：キャプチャされた魂 or Team Gemstones: Sealed Soul in Japan and PAL regions, respectively) is the first game in the Team Gemstones series to be created by Ghoul Games, Inc. (due to being a part of Series Swap Day 3). Due to the game being made by Ghoul Games, Inc., the game includes several references to the series Faitingu (another Pokémon spin-off series). The game was released in a Double-Pack that included Jack Johnson: Tulipalo Legends.
One day, while relaxing a quiet Treasure Town, Emerald, Ruby and Sapphire were talking with their friends at the Dragons Fang Cafe (which Emerald's uncle owns). They were really bored and decided to go outside to get some fresh air, however, they looked outside and it was snowing. Everyone was shocked, as it was the middle of July, how could it be snowing? Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire and the others went outside to see what was up, and when they got outside, they saw Slythe, Amber and Blaze with a captured Princess Grace alongside a Lunatone and Solrock. The villains laughed at the pathetic heroes, and then ran off.
The heroes now worrying about the princess, decide to go off and get her, however, since no one knows where they went, they decide to split up to go and find the villains and the princess.
After finding the villains, the heroes have to deal with a whole new kind of evil, as the Lunatone and Solrock (their names revealed as Iravu and Wan) have created powerful snowstorms, sandstorms, thunderstorms, tornadoes, earthquakes, ect. all over the Pokéarth.
As all the heroes split up to go and find the princess their own ways, each playable character has their own type of gameplay, each one is challenging, and listed below. After every level, players go back to Treasure Town (which acts as a HUB area) and can get healed of status ailments or can buy items. They can also choose which character to play as here by going to the Dragons Fang Cafe.
Emerald's gameplay is similar to that of The Legend of Zelda series, where Emerald uses his leaf blades to fight enemies. His gameplay is fast-paced.
Sapphire's gameplay is entirely water-based. Sapphire fights on water, using every part of the element in his gameplay. His gameplay is slower then Emerald's, and is more Super Mario Galaxy-like.
Ruby's gameplay is similar to that of the Survival Mode from the Call of Duty series. Ruby must survival waves of enemies, while trying to get through various mazes. His gameplay is more puzzle-oriented.
Spear's gameplay is similar to that of Kid Icarus: Uprising, where Spear flies through the air, defeating enemies, but has 5 minutes to finish (as he will then get too tired to fly and fall).
Princess Grace's Gameplay
Princess Grace's gameplay is similar to that of the Mario & Luigi series and the game Super Princess Peach. Princess Grace can use her attacks to overcome obstacles and will battle in typical RPG-format; turn based. Her gameplay is a more free-roam enviroment (like Super Mario RPG, the Paper Mario series and the Mario & Luigi series).
Slythe's gameplay is similar to that of Assassin's Creed. Slythe will only be played in night levels, where he will hide in the shadows and stealthily take out enemies. He seems to have overcame his clumsiness, and has gotten smarter.
Amber's gameplay is similar to that of Spear's gameplay, as Amber will start with a 2 minute flight-battle and will then land to complete a sidescroller-like level.
There are four default playable characters in the game, each with four special moves (which can be used by the A, B, X and Y buttons) and different storylines (until "Part 2" of the story). After "Part 2", there are four new playable characters.
