Honestly I found X/Y too easy which is why I haven't revisited it yet. Maybe once I've Nuzlocke'd SoulSilver I'll re-visit Black, and then after that I'll play Y again.
I really need to import my competitive battling teams over in to X, especially now that Ninty are cancelling all 'online' services for the Wii and DS. Even though my favorite battles have been face to face, we can kiss goodbye to Online Tournaments for previous gens. :(
OK how random is this, I get back home to find a letter sent to me from the Pokémon Company in America. Enclosed are a few PKMN energy cards - tho I never play the card game. But how bizzare! And how'd they get my address, spooky.
Well I've been gone and done it now, last night I shamelessly raped my PKMN White + White 2 cartridges Now I have 50 level 100 Pokemons to play with. Of course the downside is I'll never again be able to battle with them in W/W2, which is a bit of a shame 'cos I won't be able to have incidental Wireless/IR battles with friends using my 3DSs/DSi anymore. :( Oh well that's progress, I suppose. On a plus side it's much easier to build teams with them all in one place - living in my new 3DS XL. :)
Been doing a lot of battling in the Battle Mansion, got up to 39 consecutive wins in super singles :D
I'm pretty narked by the change to the game mechanics to do with weather effects being non-permanent, i.e. when brought about by a PKMN with a sandstream ability (such as Hippowdon/Tryanitar). Its completely messed up my Sand Storm team now and my favourite little Sand Rush Excadrill physical sweeper gets totally caught with his pants down when the sandstorm suddenly stops! Meh! Oh well back to the drawing board I guess.
Decide to start my Y "adventure" again with a bit of a challenge, I'm only going to be used Pokemon that I am given (via story\random people\trades) to try and make it more intresting.
I'll trade you something interesting to use if you like ;)
I may take you up on that offer as I can only think of three more pokemon that I will be give.
Some guy battled me last night and it was quite a good match. Ended up lots of one shots as we countered types and he squished my poor unevolved Eevee with a mega Gengar (which then got one shotted by my Espeon...). Ended with some water type turtle thing versus my Vaporeon and a slow and painful battle to the death with ineffective moves. He thought he had it wrapped up considering none of my team is trained, ended up a win! :D
But I picked up Glaceon last night and now I just need Leafeon for the full set!
Sounds like a well fought battle, congrats
Well, I've gone and bought Y. After much internal debate over whether to buy a 3DS or Vita over xmas, I bought the Vita, which I now realise was a mistake. So today I traded in my Vita towards a used (great condition) 3DS XL and Pokemon Y.
Enjoying it so far but my $deity, aside from the graphics this is nearly identical to Red/Blue I played 15 years ago! I'm guessing Pokemon hasn't evolved much? [pun almost intended]
Heh Pokémon kinda killed my Vita usage off too. Post your friend code and add mine in my sig! :D
And yeah, the game suffers from winning formula syndrome in that it works so Nintendo don't change it too much each iteration. The 3D update is nice though.
Well I got to the end of my using only using given or trade Pokemon.
My final team was: -
Delphox - Starting pokemon
Venusar - Given by Professor Sycamore
Aurorus - Given as a fossil
Lucario - Given after Mega stone explianed
Lapras - Given by guy out side of Shalour City on route 12
Sylveon - Traded as Eevee by woman in a hotel second floor in Cyllage city (needed to talk to her over the span of a few days)
Not the best all around team but it worked, just needed to be careful of fighting types.
