Pokemon X & Y is drawing much hype than ever around its release this October on Nintendo 3DS which promises a high quality 3D graphics blended with classic cute 2D anime drawing style. But Pokemon cannot be exclusive for 3DS players... at least that is the idea of the brand new indie game Pokemon Garden built on HTML5 which is coincidentally on our list recently!

Pokemon Garden has all what fans love about, including adorable pixel arts, fun lines of characters, beautiful Pokemon designs, etc. In fact it really reminds us of the time when we are hooked on the old Gameboy device playing Pokemon for hours. But this time we can play it everywhere on browsers of PC, tablets, smartphones thanks to the potential HTML5 technology.

In Pokemon Garden, you start as a young boy with a sense of adventure and your mom quickly hurries you out of the house to go catching Pokemon lol.

But it is the hard life out there without a Pokemon of course!

Then you are given a free choice to pick your first Pokemon at the laboratory. And Charmander is quite good-looking as always.

After having your first Pokemon, now you can go everywhere on the map to explore and battle!

But fighting alone is quite boring, so going to the city is good choice, right? There you can meet other players to chat, challenge, and... going fishing like the image below???

There are many types of Pokemon you can catch in the game. But each Pokemon has different rarity so it will take much time and efforts and Pokeballs to get the right one you want! 

For example, catching a Pikachu is a much pain cause we went around for hours to finally meet it. But the result is always worthy cause it is Pikachu right?

 There are 2 types of currency used in Pokemon Garden, including Gold and Diamond which can be used for purchasing several cute skins at the Cash Shop. Each skin has different price for weekly, monthly and limitless days of use.

The chat box at the moment has a world channel only for all players to share their playing experience. The friend list is also available by linking your Facebook account. There is an option for Clan too but it is deactivated in the Closed Beta. The Clan feature is a good idea to have players collaborate with each other more with rewards or some in-game advantages. 

Overall, our experience in Pokemon Garden is quite good for a start. Certainly there are still many bugs around which caused the game crashed or unresponsive occasionally, but that cannot be avoided for a Closed Beta and the development team encourages players to report bugs on the forum.
