Just got to 1500 encounters, I am on Route 16 in the double grass right now. I skipped the desert, resort gate and resort. So I have to make up for the 450 lost encounters elsewhere (made up 150 in Illusion Forest already, so I did 300 in it.) I did do the Relic Castle though there isn't a sandstorm in it. I have to work from 9PM to 5AM today, and then I work every day until Thursday. But I have school on Thursday (and Tuesday) then I work everyday until the next Tuesday..so I won't be doing much hunting..
