it wouldn't surprise me if they did wait until the 10 year mark. Though the NA release was in 2003, so it wouldn't be too much longer...ok...3 years from now, but that's beside the point. lol I'm in Mt.Mortar right now, heading to Mahogany Town. I did some major grinding. Took forever, though. The team should be strong enough for the Elite 4 now, though. lol
beat red and elite for the second time lance the second time was harder then red since i didnt have ice type moves or dragon and was only using the same to pokemon inferno lvl 93 beat everyone in the game to get him to it and my apmphros lvl 60 lol my apmphros took out more pokes then my inferno if i remember correctly anywho just letting you know cause i have acces to everything in the game now pretty much so if you want or need something just let me know please =)
well im traning to fight red now, I beat everyone with just typhloision(INFERNO) and my apmphros. oh and my cath rate seemed to jump after getting to kanto. beat the ealite four with lvl 51 inferno and 49 amphros(there levels recorded in hall of fame so they started like 46 and 43) only took my first try lance was a pain though not sure how i won. kanto was a little too easy after wards.
