I'm so confused by talk of this new pokemon.

Is it similar to the other games in terms of adventuring to gyms? the way people describe it sounds like they just give you pokemon from every generation and you form a team.

I dunno, it's the same in that as you wander you catch new pokemon in every area. The biggest difference in that is that they've added SO MANY to find. Each area doesn't just have one, maybe two types... I've caught up to four different types in just the same patch of grass, and then moved on to the next patch of grass and found a totally different one yet again. All the older gen ones are mixed in with the new ones.

I actually really like it? I didn't even notice until I was mostly done with the gyms because I formed a team I liked early on and just sort of blew past most of the grassy spots the first go-around. Now that I'm firmly in the "avoid the final four" mindset I've been going back to catch a bunch of the ones I missed.

Plus, wonder trade is not as full of terrible pokemon as everyone was worried about. I've gotten loads of useful stuff by trading that way.

That is actually a relief. It was sounding like they just kind of RNG'd pokemon to you.

It's the small things. Like how you get from gym to gym, the mini games, the exploration, the amount of different pokemon, the companions, the battle animations, the clothes, etc. I can honestly say X and Y is getting very close to being my favorite and that used to be HeartGold/SoulSilver. It really is well made.

Also finally I found a store that gives cute clothes! Laverre Town was made for me, I'm just as eccentric as the town itself.



First thing I'm gonna do tomorrow is check back on that boutique.

I've noticed it's really cool how different the game play can be depending on your interests. Like, I've got a friend who's going through the main story super slow cuz he likes to level everything evenly and check every single nook and cranny (he may be insane, idk). But even my other friend is going through way slower than me... I just sort of powered through because I wanted monies for cute outfits.

Now that I'm going back to explore I'm having a lot of fun. I like my games to be kind of easy, honestly, and now that I've got a high level party it makes exploring way less frustrating to me.

It sounds like a Nuzlocke challenge in x/y could be fantastic

I actually thought of doing a blind X Nuzlocke run but eh, I'd rather just have fun first. Maybe much later I'll get a rom and play it there.

OH, I almost missed your outfit post. She's so cute!! I'm glad you found a boutique you like!

I'm pretty sure I would have zero patience for the Nuzlocke challenge. I already make unhealthy attachments to digital things, there is no need to encourage that more.

Hahahahaha I'm only laughing because I've been there for so long and you'd think it wears out, you really would, but it hasn't yet.

I'm going to start getting into gaming more, and my big gaming strategy is to use a low-end computer to play decade-old games.

This works especially well because I'll probably forget about anything that had caught my eye by then, and I won't actually bother.
except there aren't any current games that I want to play*, so not even that will happen

Yay!




*well... there might be one


wait, shit
there aren't any decade-old games that I want to play, either

This plan is seriously flawed.




guess I'll just keep my gaming experience limited to visual novels about flirtatious pigeons, then

Imo you should only get into Pokemon if you want to - it's not like it offers something special for those uninterested in animals battling each other.
