I don't know... I was impatient, so I just gave up... It's awesome having a birthday that's either the beginning or middle of spring break. I beat the Johto part of the game in six days. I got stuck trying to figure out how to get around Snorlax in Kanto. When I looked it up on YouTube, I was like, "Are you kidding me?!"
The last party I had was two years ago, too... My birthday happened to be the day SoulSilver came out, so that was my one and only birthday present. I didn't want to have a party. I was just like, "Screw this, I want to get on this game and play it already!" But my sister had some of her friends come over. I just ignored them and sat in the living room, eating my birthday hot dog, and resetting the game, trying to get a female Chikorita... I gave up.
