    Yeah, I get to a stage after beating the Elite Four and champion where I can't be bothered anymore, so I start a new game with a different starter and five Pokemon I didnt have in my squad previously. It keeps things FRESH. :disco:

    How did you get Reshiram? And the Black exclusive, not to be seen in White Vullaby? And Landorus? :(

    Well to be fair I think I only need about 5 more to complete my dex (leveling up that Dark Dragon Pokemon is going to be a a pain) I hope we get some of the event exclusives as well soon.

    I wonder if they will go any further with the remakes now. Surely updated Ruby and Sapphire games would just be pointless?

    You would think the re-makes will stop for a while - it makes sense for the first two because they were essentially Game Boy games and many people will only have played them in their monochrome format. I don't see the need either from a graphical or technical point of view for anything on the GBA or later to be re-made at this point.

    GTS! I had the full collection of Pokemon on Pearl, so I've brought them over on Pokemon transfer. I had a spare Mew and Lugia (hmm!) so i traded them for Reshiram and a spare Thundurus, then traded Thundurus for Tornadus (or Tornanus as we called it) with my White-version friend. To get Landorus you need Thundurus and Tornadus in your team when you visit a shrine somewhere.

    GTS is good for getting the version exclusives, just put your OWN version exclusives on GTS and someone will trade.

    And yes, that dark dragon WAS a pain. I think it was level 50 or level 51 it went to its SECOND stage, let alone the three-headed thing :( But I've seen one of them already, it was just the 2-headed one I hadn't seen.

    Incidentally, I took a break from this but now have seven gym badges and quite a solid team (I would like Pansage and Pansear to evolve soon though) which averages around level 38ish. I don't like the Winter season, too much snow and ice.

    Yes but once they evolve they stop learning new moves.

    So which of these statements is TRUE then? Do you just keep MAKING THINGS UP as you GO ALONG? :evil:

    I started with a Snivy for my third playthrough before I realised I played first time with a Snivy. :zombie: I've reset the game but little is motivating me to play anymore.

    God why does everything level up as such a high level on this one?? I'm trying to evolve a Rufflett and a Vullaby, and they both need to be Level 54 :evil: Even my Sigiliyph who I've used from pretty much the start isn't that high yet!

    It's not realy unreasonable that those two evolve at such high levels given that the lowest level wild ones are still about level 40.

    How is your Sigilyph still at such a low level? My core team of six are all in their mid to high sixties.

    Mm I guess it all fell apart after the Pokemon league, I only really used Samurott for the league, that's about Lv 64 now, I only keep Sigilyph around to Fly :shy: I'm a bit ADRIFT now.

    I've been using my Lv100 Charizard with Exp share to level up things as the other pokemon gets all the points. I used it to finish the Pokemon league again, and beat up Cynthia. Not much challenge when you outlevel them so much.

    I've seen all the Unova pokemon and had 110 so far, I've nearly got my national seen dex complete, though for some reason I dont have a Porygon2, but I'm working on it!

    I got this for Christmas, even though I never did finish HEARTGOLD *pika pika*

    It's the same as ever really

    In related news my MOTHER is now playing DRAGON QUEST 9. You wouldn't think it would appeal to a 61-year-old woman but THERE YOU GO

    According to crazy Japanese magazine CoroCoro, a new Pokemon game, possibly Pokemon Grey, is to be announced shortly. :disco:

    They shouldn't add the 2. They should just call them a colour again. Though they must be running out of choices by now. Maybe they should be called Pokemon Grey & Beige

    Not really, but the thought of them being brand new stories is.

    goodness!

    I've got all the Pokeymans now though :disco:, I'm SET until the next generation (unless by some miracle they actually refresh the game to any degree).

    I never did get the third of any of the generations, was a bit too similar. I guess if this is effectively another iteration of the saga rather than a remix of Black/White it's a different twist, but I need selling on this one.

    Have you seen the amount of 'Lets Play' walkthroughs there are on Youtube? There's alot for Black and White and Emerald at the moment, one of the best at the moment is Leuroi and his Pokemon Black walkthrough.

    I assumed you were referring to Pokemon Black.

    A numbered sequel sounds interesting but probably merely only the fact that it's surely not just going to be an update of the existing games. I don't really know where a sequel can go without just setting you up against ANOTHER 8 gym leaders (maybe with your existing squad transferred from an old save file?) in another land. Unless they're going to be stylistically completely different to the core series, but I can't see Nintendo making that much of a departure

    If anything, im curious to see how they will handle the link between games. How can you continue the story if you have to start from scratch?

    But then how do you make a game that caters for new starters and people who have trained up a powerful team?

    I suspect it will be a sequel in the loosest sense, none of the original cast etc. this is a straight to DVD sequel

    I'm glad it's not just another sequel like Emerald or Platinum were. I'd like to see some new Pokemon as well.
