    Explorers of Time/Darkness really screwed me up as a kid. I bawled my eyes out at the end. Never played Gates to Infinity, and yet to play Super Mystery Dungeon, but I'm hoping it delivers like it seems it delivered to you, haha :D

    Here's a somewhat accurate reference for how long this game is:
    http://howlongtobeat.com/game.php?id=31977

    Good site for game length times btw, for future reference.

    EDIT: Just so there's no confusion, the site displays polled times in different colors based on their accuracy (more polled times, better accuracy). On a spectrum from Red to Blue, Red is least accurate, Blue is most.

    Heliolisks are BS. They have a move that wrecks your entire team in 1-2 hits and it can be used from the other end of a room so you have no chance to even get to them to have a chance to stop them.

    yeah gates to infinity had a great story but didn't have an expansive selection of pokemon like a mystery dungeon game should...

    its compared to the 1st two by having a storyline that involves a human coming to the pokemon world for a higher purpose... and it compares to gates to infinity by having some styles of gameplay from gti but, if you are willing to look over the non pokemon final boss, you will love this game, I swear my harmony scarf on it

    GTI was good, but had too many things holding it back. Too many things that felt incomplete and rushed. PSMD is by far the best game in the series so far.

    Ya know what bothers me? The mystery dungeon series has such great storytelling, but the main Pokemon series is so crap at storytelling it's almost insulting.

    Anyways glad you liked it. I have a friend who fell in love with that game. Glad Mystery Dungeon is back to its former glory.

    Red/Blue Rescue Team was good, but I really fell in love with the series in Explorers of Time/Darkness. I got really excited for a new game, and we got Explorers of Sky. While the extra episodes and Shaymin stuff were cool, I wanted a NEW MD game. I was pretty young then, and I remember writing a letter to Nintendo pleading them for a new MD game. I was bawling my eyes out by the end of Time/Darkness/Sky (never actually finished Red/Blue RT, but I'd likely have done the same there).

    Great story, like you said. Still yet to play SMD, but from what I've heard, it's great. Whoever writes the stories for MD, they should be in charge of the story for the main series. They play it safe, but it wouldn't be hard to amp up the story there. It's weird, because lately, the main series games have gotten into the habit of including pretty hard words that no small kid would understand, yet catering their entire story towards small kids. I have a feeling some higher-up is behind it, and doesn't want any radical changes, thus causing the writers to resort to some beefed-up vocabulary.

    I really hope this doesn't count as a spoiler for anyone, but I've heard Super Mystery Dungeon has a mediocre ending. So don't get your hopes up.
