Well I dont have the game yet, but Im having a race against my friends to see who can complete the game in under 2 weeks. Most of that time is spring break so it could be a challenge 8D

How long does it take you to complete the games?

When I played I could get to the credits (beat N, Ghetsis etc.,) in about 20 hours.

It took me about 23 hours (3 more hours) to beat every route, arrest all the sages and beat Alder.

How long does it take you, if you have played the Japanese games?

(no i wasnt rushing, I just dont dillydally)

Don't think it took me too long... I didn't rush, but considering I couldn't read anything I didn't go ahead and talk to every NCP or pay close attention to the dialogue, as I usually do.

Haven't played the games yet, but I'm hoping it will take longer than, say, HG/SS.

"Role-playing games should be no less than 180 hours long, not counting side quests!"
Imagine if they made a Pokémon game like that.

I haven't played them yet, but judging by my playtime on other games, I suspect I'll be in the 50+ hours category, unless I suddenly feel inspired to actually play though a game quickly for once. I tend to get reallly sidetracked when playing and try to complete my Pokedex, do lots of breeding, and build a great team before I actually beat the main game, so I don't normally get around to beating the "main game" for quite some time.

Merged rather than locking, cause this thread was more active than the other - and it needed activity!

(Actually lol, I think PC broke or something because it doesn't even show a merge occured and stole the other thread's title)

Also, haven't played games yet, so can't judge on completion time.

I'm on about 28 hours and have almost completed White. I think 30-40 has got to be the average - sometimes training can take a while in order to push on! Generally for each Pokemon game, I think around 30-40 hours sounds about right.

Well, with White I want to learn everything about it, talk to all the NPCS, collect all the items and take it slowly ect. so I'll probally take about 40/50 hours, maybe more.. it's better that way IMO.

It took me about 33 hours to finish, because I mass grinded at victory road. MASS. My Pokemon were so underleveled, I grinded all my pokemon to level 60 by killing a lot of Durant and Boldore.

It took me 21 hours to beat. I probably could have done it faster, but I was off hunting for my "dream team".

If you mean game time (because I only play about 2.30 hours a day) it took me about 23 hours. Just under one day :D
