Pokémon Gaming CentralFor topics that aren't necessarily restricted to one game, Pokémon Gaming Central ranges from comparing and contrasting the differences in the gaming generations to discussing the gaming franchise as a whole.
The only NPCs who annoyed me were the people who called you constantly in GSC/ HGSS. And that was before I learned not to give them my number.
The annoying rivals/gym leaders like Claire and Whitney... you know, that's their personality. The fact that they annoy some people means that they're well written, if that makes sense. They're supposed to be douchebags/sore losers. They're just pieces of data, and I know when they're going to appear in the story, so I'm prepared for them. And some of them, like the gym leaders, only appear once.
The people who call you, on the other hand... yep, the are somewhat annoying because you never know when they're going to call you. You're probably doing something important like getting ready to challenge the E4 when the phone rings and what d'ya know... it's Younster Ronald or whatever, with a story of how a Caterpie just escaped the other day... :D Shut up, Youngster Ronald. Seriously. Just shut. up.
