Which one do u perfer. I like pokegear becasue...
1)Don't have to keep charging it
2) the trainers call u when there ready for a rematch, so u don'thave to use the seeker 10 times before they can battle u

what do u think

Yeha, BUT, it takes FOREVER for them to call, and 99 percent of the time, they just talk to about their Pokemon !

VS Seeker for me

Seconded, the pokégear can be counted on to go 'briiing!' at the most annoying times when the random trainer has decided to recount the tale of how he beat a really tough Rattata for the umpteenth time (Honestly, where's the "Couldn't care less." response? -.-) and chasing down the random challenges that do arise becomes a serious pain in the behind really quickly (To the point where I found it more convenient to level against wild pokémon back in the second generation). At least the Pokénav phone in R/S/E had unlimited memory and handy-dandy markers for active challenges, although it was still too much hassle for my liking. With the Vs Seeker you can focus on battling precisely the trainers you want and don't have to wait for them to take the initiative. The slight bother of compulsory recharge is a non-issue by comparison to that of chasing down trainers across the whole freakin' region, and I'm quite used to breeding pokémon, so "walk 50 steps" or whatever the amount was really isn't anything by comparison

Alter, that was pure genius. Absolutely. They ALWAYS call to tell me some stupid, random, meaningless, crap, which I considered SPAM. Then it was every other 30 seconds. And I can't even use Rydon cause Lightning Rod will increase those calls. My favorite was Crystal. When they [rarely] called, it was to either to battle, tell me something IMPORTANT, or give me something. Piciner gave me a Leaf Stone! Come on, thats amazing. Plus, they actually get stronger, rather than stay the same. But, Vs seeker would be second to me.

I think Pokegear is good since Vs. Seeker has to recharge on use and you have to run everywhere.

I like the VS seeker because with the Pokegear there are only a certain amount of trainers you can battle but with the Vs seeker (which can be annoying) but you can seeker basically any trainer

Vs. Seeker is way better than the little phone thingy in the PokeGear IMO.

Mostly because....
There were no annoying phone calls. How many times does that trainer have to talk about beating a "really tough Pokemon" anyway?

There is a limit, but you don't have to delete your current trainer's numbers to get other trainer's numbers.

The only drawback to the Vs. Seeker is that the trainers don't tell you about anything important like where rare Pokemon are swarming or if they find special items, but Vs. Seeker is still better.

I rather have vs seeker then a pokegear, cause you can fight almost any trainer you want to battle from almost anywhere you too, and not have to deal with stupid annoying calls at inconvenient times to slow you down for going.

Yeah, that's basically what I think too. The phone calls were WAY too annoying and you could only store 10 phone numbers. VS Seeker is better although I did like the radio on the Pokegear.
