LOL Wow. That's crazy. xD I was loking at the DS games trying to figure out what I'd want.. I still didn't see anything. And I had a Naruto game for GC once. I really didn't like it and ended up trading it in at Gamestop. Of course, the Naruto game for DS might be better. I don't know as I've never played it. xD
And, that's okay. xD Sentimental isn't a bad thing, after all.
Whoa, lol, me too. I only have Pokemon and Nintendogs as DS games, I've got nothing else. I do have my eye on a Naruto game, but xD, I'm clueless as to playing it...the other problem is having my parents let me buy one, they probably think it's too violent, but hey, there's been worse games.
I first got my DS at Christmas, a few years ago; the games that were also presents were Nintendogs and Pokemon Ranger. But I decided that my first DS/GBA game should be a normal RPG Pokemon game, so I switched with FireRed. (Yeah, I'm sentimental like that)
I know what you mean. Whenever a really strong attack is used on one of my Pokemon... I literally hold my breath. O_O
I really, really want Platinum... but I need a DS, first. </3. I'm saving up for one, though. Hoarding money on a Gamestop card and all. Platinum looks really cool and I really, really wanna play it. I'm not sure if I wanna get a DS yet, though. Because the only games on it that I'm interested in so far are the Nintendogs ones and the Pokemon ones. I'll probably get one, anyway. xD
It's really lucky if my Pokemon survive a really effective attack. I actually sigh outta relief whenever that happens xD.
I'm waiting till Platinum comes out, there's a slight chance I might not get it. The only DS game I'm missing is Explorers of Time or Darkness, though I've played it once. Can't wait till Platinum's out, it looks cool, I heard Explorers of Sky is coming out too.
Exactly. And, that's basically the kind of weakness I'm talking about. :] Like, all my Pokemon usually know a variety of moves. If I have a Water Pokemon, he'll know two water moves and then two other moves that will help him around certain Pokemon. Like, he might know a rock/fighting move so he'll have an advantage over thunder- whereas without those moves, a thunder move would totally kick his butt, right?
And, Gale of Darkness isn't the best game... but, it's something until I can get another GB or a DS. If you love the GB and DS games... I don't recommend it. XD
Yep, I know that all Pokemon, no matter how strong they are have weaknesses. But for your own Pokemon's weaknesses, you need to know how to support them. Not sure if this is the kind of weakness you're referring to but...My Charizard (even though the amount of attacks are limited) has quite a variety of attacks. She knows Solarbeam to counter Rock and Water Types, and Earthquake for elelctic types. The rest are fire type moves, including Blast Burn.
I've never played Gale of Darkness before, I only have Pokemon Gameboy or DS games.
I'm usually like that, too. I don't know why I'm not for XD. I guess because the game is shorter overall and there's no gyms or anything. And, Mt Battle kind of makes it hard not to keep the Pokemon balanced. If the game were like the gameboy/DS games, though, Eevee would be at least 6 levels ahead. You're right, though. Two Pokemon aren't enough. Even if they're strong or legendaries or any of that- every Pokemon has a weakness.
It's usually my started Pokemon that are higher leveled than my other Pokemon. Like, even after I finished the game, my Charizard is at leas more than 10 levels higher than most of my team, with the exception of my second strongest Pokemon, Vaporeon. It's the same with every other generation, for Sapphire, my strongest is Sceptile, second is Flygon, in Pearl, strongest is Empoleon, second is Mismagius. But two Pokemon aren't enough, I know for a fact that my whole team should be balanced.
I do that sometimes, too. Like, on XD right now... my Ampharos is my best Pokemon because I battle with him the most. And, he tends to stay at least 2 levels ahead of my Pokemon. Sometimes, they'll catch up. But, he's always a little ahead. And, sometimes I lose because of it- and I wanna smack myself in the face, too.
I make the horrible mistake of (not really intentional) of making one Pokemon excel highly over the other Pokemon, causing the other Pokemon to be a bit under-levled, and then I depend on my highest level Pokemon and when it faints, my other Pokemon go with it. Dx I feel like hitting myelf in the face, because I know it's my fault.
I totally know what you mean. xD I don't think it's being over-sensitive, either. Sometimes, I feel like crying, too when one of my Pokemon lose. because, I feel like it's partly my fault for sending him out when he's underleveled/unexperienced/etc. Like I was playing Gale of Darkness today and went to Mt. Battle. I didn't know that on the 7th one the Pokemon were Lv 58-60 and my Pokemon were only Lv 53-54... and, they lost horribly. Dx
I get mad at myself when my team and I lose too, I feel like crying whenever my Pokemon faint. xD (Call me over sensitive but...) I just know that it's my fault, 'specially when the Pokemon wasn't ready or under leveled.
Dx Ugg! I hate that, too. it's not the Pokemon's fault- because the Pokemon was only doing what the trainer was making him do, right? I admit, I get mad when my Pokemon loses- but, honestly, i blame myself and get mad at myself. xD
