would you consider someone that spends over 200 man hours attempting to get their perfect team a hardcore pokemon fan? ive spend close to that now and by perfect I mean hatching eggs using the masuda method as well trying to get shinys as well. im still tryin to get a shiny beldum and I have over 100 now. would you consider me a hardcore fan and if not what would you consider a hardcore fan?

Holy shinx.

Dude, not saying you're have no life or anything, but get off that DS! Or at least play something else! That isn't hardcore, that's titaniumcore, too much.

Good luck.

I don't see why you'd try so hard, you have 4 false legendaries, and charizard who i think is overrated, dragonite would also be overrated, although, what you're doing with shinies and what not, is a bit too far.

Sorry dude but I've got four for you, "It's just a game!"
Don't take games into such a serious matter.
I personally don't think that getting addicted to Pokemon is "hardcore". Just sayin'.

Yeah that's a bit too much.

I could possibly understand 200 hours (personally I stop after 50) for all of your game time but 200 for one team is extreme. Though it's your choice how you spend your time.

Like Stormborn already said it's your time so you choose how to spend it but 200 hours for one team is a bit excessive...

The most playtime I've had for one save file was my original Pearl Version at 500 hours, which mind you is a 6 year old save file with many hours spent on Wi-Fi.

Still, it's your time so ultimately your choice, but that doesn't sound very healthy, to me at least.

Um... no. No offense meant, but no. It's not an issue of the time spent - it's what you've spent it on. If you'd invested all that time into getting beneficial natures, good stats, appropriate EVs and optimum movesets on viable pokemon, then maybe, but to invest all that time into getting shinies of overrated, overused pseudolegendaries? Nah. Sorry.

Quick question, why not just RNGing? It would seem to be much (much!) quicker than trying to use the Masuda method and you won't get as many people freaking out when you say you spend 20~30 hours just getting your perfect Pokemon team.

To be hard core fan you must have a collection of toys of all the Pokemon character.

Little extreme, I broke 200 hours on my SoulSilver game and that took the better half of a year.

I'm just gonna close this. It doesn't bring much discussion and almost everyone has told you the same thing. :/

Locked.
