    Story aside, a game like pokemon would be turn based battle systems, like final fantasy IV and Chrono trigger. Is not a action rpg like Kingdom Hearts.

    Fair enough.

    If OP wants some action, OP should play LoZ: Phantom Hourglass and LoZ: Spirit Tracks. Surprised they have not been mentioned yet.

    If you're looking for a game that need a very good concentration and fast reactions you should try Megaman Zero Collection, it's a Megaman game (not a very traditional one though) and is fun.

    It contains the four Megaman Zero games released for the GBA on a single cart.

    I second this and Megaman ZX and Megaman ZX Advent. All good titles. Although these games will also kill shoulder buttons so beware.

    TLoZ: Phantom Hourglass, best game <3

    Maybe Ghost Trick: Phantom Detektiv? I like it...

    Maybe cause is a stylus game, not really appealing to most people looking for Action. My best guest. :P

    That like saying Brain age, or Ninja gaiden dragon sword. Action games? What about Kirby Squeak squad, mass attack? Yoshi's Island DS, I though everyone loved that yoshi game. Mega man ZX advent, Mega man Zero collection, Mega man star force. Does OP play fighting games? Bleach blade of fate, Sonic rush adventure. Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, Guilty Gear dust strikers. Contra 4, 3 Castlevania games on NDS O_O

    At least try one of them, I named 10 good games recommended by many players.

    Yes to Ghost Trick. It is an underappreciated gem, although it is not action oriented. It's a slow paced puzzle game.

    I can't believe I forgot this title: Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. What a fun GTA game on a handheld.

    Games like Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time and Bowser's Inside Story would be right up your alley.
    You'll have to press X, Y, B, and A to dodge certain attacks to avoid taking damage and of course, do the same for your attacks.

    Radiant Historia is a good rpg all about making decisions and/or time-traveling with gameplay similar to Grand Kingdom (Vita) and Grand Knights History (PSP).

    The World Ends with you is amazing! I actually still listen to the soundtrack!
    I also suggest the Ace Attorney games an Shin Megami Tensei games

    I love SMT, but I think it's the exact opposite of what OP's asking for.

    I recommend the Castlevania games. I don't think they're as good as SotN or the GBA ones, but they're still great.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ What's life without an adventure? I didn't think I would enjoy any of the games I suggested and now they are my favorite DS games (and game series for some.)
    I also suggest Solatorobo
