i'm in your conscience
Depends on what I plan it to be. I typically don't like to get too many party members at the same time, but that happens sometimes. I had a team of 5 about 3 badges in in White 2, and all 5 are going to be part of the final team. Black 2 is gonna be more spaced out, but it's so spaced out that it's...weird. I don't like getting party members too late either, but hey, it happens. I also don't like raising Pokemon that I don't plan on keeping forever, but I make some exceptions (like my Mareep in Black 2).
