Yeah not totally sure of my feelings on this. I liked that it made it more interactive, but it did get annoying sometimes. xD

I have been fishing rarely in this game, but it wasn't truly difficult to me, and super rod wasn't too hard to find as well.

Mm.. It was okay I guess.. It made it less repetitive without the constant absent-minded spamming of the select button and the A button till you got a Pokemon...

Despite the new fishing system made it harder to fish Pokemons by using Rods, I liked it a lot because it turned fishing into something more realistic. Fishing is really that... you have to wait carefully and pay attention to the hook all the time.

I enjoy it as a gimmick that makes the fishing slightly more realistic, and slightly exciting. But I'm definitely glad they dumbed it down for all the other games. It wouldn't be as fun if it was like that in all of them.

I kind of like it, it's pretty good and at the same time it's not.
But I still like it in many ways.

I like it actually! I found it pretty fun, but apparently others found it too difficult. :( It was the first game I actually fished in though, so I guess that's why it wasn't too bad for me to adjust to, since I didn't have anything to compare it to.

It drove me nuts since it took a while, but... I honestly enjoyed the system sometimes. u~U Just felt like it would have been much easier if you only needed to wait until you had a bite, especially if you're playing on a sped up emulator.

I think although future Gen's system making fishing a Pokemon easy, the fishing feature on RSE sort of mirrors real-life fishing experience. So I enjoyed it too.

I'll say the fishing system was retarded, but I mastered it nonetheless
When it says "Oh! A bite!" you should press & hold the A button, then when the phrase goes & appears again let go for a millisecond then press & hold again, repeat until the player realizes that "a Pokemon is on the hook!"
