So, Pokémon XY, right?

My friend Isaiah and I both got our copies right when Gamestop opened at 10am and played together all day Saturday at the same pace. He went home 'round midnight/after Ramos but we accidentally stayed in synch until after Wulfric, because then I started dicking around instead of going for the League. We were both really damn picky about our flying types too so we had trouble with a few things. I caught a Delibird eventually but I really could not use it so I gave up and went all the way back to catch a lv15 Zubat when my party was ~70. And then trained it. Fully. I do like that Zubat aren't common in this game. And I love the diversity of Pokémon. I've hardly seen repeat teams on NPCs.

So I've been collecting clothes and growing berries and training Emma instead of actually finishing the game. The Battle Chateau is the best place ever, guys. Get up to second rank, issue a Writ of Invitation, and the money just rolls in. And experience- some of the nobility have decent-level Audino and once you get higher you get higher-level opponents. And gym leaders show up too! And when you run back to Camphrier to heal, you can check on your berries. And the daycare is right there too. Best route ever.

So my team is now:

Emma - Crobat - lv79
Flynn - Greninja - lv89
Amanda - Roserade - lv88
Anthony - Aurorus - lv89
Blaziken - Blaziken - lv91
Rachel - Mawile - lv92

I HAVE NEVER HAD POKEMON THIS HIGH LEVELLED BEFORE. It's so weird. And this game is too easy! And I feel like I never can use Blaze or Rachel because they've always been so far above and I want the others to catch up. I haven't used Rachel in a battle since Olympia. I'm turning off EXP Share when I play through Y to see how drastic of an effect that has on difficulty. Probably not a lot, considering how well grinding works in the Battle Chateau and the restaurants and on the alley-dwellers of Lumiose.

Also Lumiose is great even though I hated it at first and still get lost every time fly to the northern Pokémon Center. And Clemont is my favourite. And I love the random crap people say in this game. It's often funny or actually insightful. And I ship brains/brawn ahahaha. And Trevor/Tierno. And I saw the first episode of the XY anime and sdfghjkl so good.

    I haven't gotten them yet, but I heard some people didn't like the EXP All cause it makes the game too easy and that you turn it on and off now. Now i know I'm probably gonna leave it off for the whole game unless I really need to do some grinding like when I get to the E4 or keep losing to a Gym Leader. It sounds like it can be handy in some situations, particularly grinding.

    Yeah I feel like the intent was to give the game kind of an easy mode/hard mode kind of thing and meant to be left off most of the time. But it's rlly tempting to leave it on. And I don't know how difficult it'd be or how much grinding would need to happen if I left it off. Well, something to experiment with on Y!

    Wow, completely jealous right now of that high-leveled team :p but at least my Delphox is in the 70s right now while my Venusaur and Blaziken are in the 60s and the rest in the 50s
