Yeah, you know me. I'm over half way through doing all of them. That gets sorta boring when its no challenge and instead is just sort of something that takes half of my day up. If i'm going to invest half my day in something, I want to at least have a good time doing it, if i can.
Instead of making the opponents' levels higher, I often try to make it more challenging by instead keeping my own levels lower.
On the one hand, I don't really think it should be allowed, because it is still hacking. But on the other hand, you're hacking to make the game harder, whereas the 'no hacking' rule was implemented to prevent just the opposite. So I think it should be fine.
I was sort of wondering something. I'm doing a monotype right now, and I am in the Team Rocket Hideout. My Pokemon are all around level 35. I'm still fighting Pokemon that are unevolved and around level 15. So, if I were to do some hacking and buff their levels up to about 30, would I still be credited with completing it when I do? Because its not really very fun when I can kill things with Tackle. I want it to be a challenge.
You better get ready for an update in the next month (hopefully).
I've completed every Monotype on Red/Blue/Yellow, and about half of them on GSC. But now, I'm just going to go through all the Ultimates. So, I'm starting with Normal, and I already have half of it done. So, I'm going to be completing a lot of ultimate monotypes a lot of fast.
