Pokemon: Desert Version, is the first game of Generation V ever released, aside from its counterpart, Arctic version. The game was released for all units of Nintendo DS, and a special Generation III graphics edition for the Game Boy Advance SP was released exclusively to Gamestop. Pokemon Desert version focuses around Brian or Cynthia (the basic name of the player character), an eleven year old boy/girl who just moved to Junnin Town. The character sets off across the Tohjo Region, catching Pokemon, battling the Elite Four, and eventually catching the legendary Bufanon. Bufanon is the Desert Pokemon, and is changing the weather to be drastically hot, all across Tohjo. The plot is slightly different in Arctic version, where the weather becomes drastically cold. This makes for slightly different sprites, and minor location changes. The sprites of characters in Desert change to short sleeves, sleeveless and short-sleeve shirts, fingerless gloves, etc. Overall, Desert Version focuses on the legendary Pokemon Bufanon, the summer heat, and saving the region from a total meltdown.
