Sweet xD. I'm always too afraid to go into the Pokemon League without a full team of six pokemon in their level 50s.

I play ROM hacks more than both because except for black/white and Black2/white2, ive beat them all multiple times. And even then, i beat white version once. I assume black is the same except for white forest or whatever.

Id say I play diamond version a little more then my gba games because i restarted the gba ones.

Wonder Trade!!!

I play semi-competitively against my friends on the DS games, but otherwise, I'm playing older games or hacks for the most part. I beat Black, got halfway through White and got a bit bored of them. Maybe I just have an affinity for the older games, but definitely 1st and 3rd generations see the most play from me.

I own 2 DSes, a lite and a DSi. I also have a GBA SP which I use for playing my advance games. I don't play emulators because I consider myself a legit player. I have both HG/SS, White, LG, and Emerald. And I play all of them except White, I rarely ever play White.

When I do play Pokémon games, I will always play a GBA game over the DS entries. FireRed for semi-nostalgia and its graphics style, and Emerald for its mechanics and features. Although the new games are technically better based on content and competition, I just can't get into them. I guess my problem is that there's just too many Pokémon, items, and mechanics for me to memorize anymore. Plus I don't like having to completely adjust what I'm used to after so many years of playing the classics, especially the Physical/Special split and pseudo-3D graphics.

I dislike the newer gen Pokemon games too. The only things that I like are the wifi interaction with other people and the distribution of Event pokemon via wi-fi. Although the graphics have been updated, I feel that gameplay is way more important than grapthics and I really dislike alot of the gameplay of the newer games excluding HG/SS

My Pokemon Black has not been played in nearly 3 months. The most recent Pokemon games that I have played are Ruby and Emerald to be honest. I enjoy them so much more than the DS games.

I do, but not as much as I used to. All Gen III games are my favourites. I may not have a lot of spare time for them but I play them from time to time. Mostly nostalgic purposes. And from that, I get some awesome Pokemon for me to migrate/transfer to the DS games.

While I own most Pokemon games, I have a hard time enjoying them outside of emulators, they feel so slow to me.

I do. Pokémon Emerald and Pokémon LeafGreen are the Pokémon games I mostly play nowadays. I only enjoy Pokémon Pearl and Pokémon White, but I love the GBA games.
