Yeahhh. My friends and I are in the anime club together and we all went as a group to get B/W together :3 unfortunately, I don't think any of them care as much as me. They always refer to me for questions XD
You're lucky. All my friends grew out of Pokémon way, way back when. I love training up in these new games because of Audino and the Lucky Egg. They made it really nice and easy. It will be terrible going back to SS or something and trying to train up just as fast. It won't be fun. ;(
Ah that's unfortunate! D: Almost all my friends "play", but I use the term loosely XD They at least pick up the game. I got all the starters from breeding, it's not too hard to level other Pokemon imo. I've been doing Elite 4/Nimbasa Sports Dome/Cheren every day with an exp. share on my Deino...I actually borrowed my boyfriend's Haxorus cause I didn't want to level Fraxure up to evolution level xD;
Yellow was the easiest to complete because you were given the three starters and they are always a pain to have to get in the first evolution and then train them up to lvl 36, one by one. At least in Yellow you (generally) use them in your party so you have them all the way through. Then you only need a few leftovers from Red/Blue.
I don't think I have any friends that would actually play Pokémon anymore, haha...
The hardest part is definitely when it comes to borrowing Pokemon from others...for some reason I can't get my friends who have to game to actually, you know, PLAY. XD I've never ever complete a Pokedex...considering National Dex, but since I don't have a head start from other games cause I never cared before, it might be a stupid idea.
I am (hoping) to try and get a complete Pokédex eventually. I haven't done that since Red. I keep forcing myself not to play the game during the week so I can concentrate on my coursework, so progress is pretty slow. I haven't even finished the game yet. XD;
Hahah, unfortunately it's not a living Pokedex ): The few I have left aren't even legendaries, they're just ones like Zorua/Zoroark that I'm too lazy to get, Zweilous/Hydreigon that takes ridiculous leveling, and Archen/Archeops that I have to convince one of my friends to lend me. x_x
