checked my game, i am only at 195 hours, but as my earlier post said, for a 26 year old that works 40 hours, has a 3 year old, and plays X maybe 4 days outta the week for a couple hours at a time, not bad.
Kudos. I havent got much hours on this one yet only 40 or so but I also have a 1.25 year old daughter. lol

If these games had a more traditional Battle Tower (one that didn't abuse cheap tactics like accuracy reducing items), then I'd probably be playing it every day. There just isn't enough post-game content to keep me coming back for more. Oh and I'm not into competitive battling or trading so don't even mention it.

I'd say very , i had the game 10 days and invested 125hours and caught 716 pokemon , all though i thought i might of sold my DS stored a few valuable into the bank , deleted save file and then changed my mind and cried now just trying to speedrun back up to get back to where i was , but the most fun i had was breeding starter's deposting on GTS and getting all the poke's i need loved the feeling of the message "your deposited pokemon was traded"

I've been playing non-stop since last Friday when I got my 3DS. I swear, it has produced a ton of procrastination for me, which gave me a long list of schoolwork for me to catch up. Sadly that list is still there and I'm still putting it off. But I don't feel ashamed of it at all. :P

So yes, I am addicted to the game...very badly. Already going to face my 6th gym soon.

At 954 hours, 718 Pokemon, 1,712 total Battles, over 2,300 trades!! I decided to restart my Pokemon X adventure so I can relive the Addiction all over again ;D!!

I placed all my Pokemon into the Bank, Traded with a friend to hold on to items I wanted to keep (this last one took ages D;!), and then I proceeded to wipe my save data :D!

Now I am currently at 2 hours and barely finished up with south Lumiose City (slow because of all the trades with a friend, bank transfers and whatnot I had to do) !


I am slightly regretting restarting as i realized that upon restarting, i lost the ability to use game sync, and am forced to send a request to remove my old pokemon-gl.com registration, then have to start all over, thus losing all my medals, logs, and pokemiles, etc. I had hoped it would still work but guess not D:!!!

but at least i get to enjoy the story again ^.^ and lol with an awesome party.. i seriously released my starters chespin and charmander.. instead i have a party of level 15 Virizion, Manaphy, Victini, Mewtwo, & Genesect, and with lv 50 Xerneas on standby until up to level 60 pokemon obey me and have talonflame on standby until i can use fly and as replacement for Victini

Been working on completing the Kalos Dex, and I'm at 269 hours.


...Still have yet to beat the Super Singles in the Battle Maison. I wish that there were no banned Pokémon. Woulda swept that ♥♥♥♥ already with a team of Zekrom, Xerneas, and Arceus. Then again, if there were no banned pokes, the Maison would just cheat with Uber legendaries too. But I wanna win already...

Last time I checked (don't even remember when) my played game time was over 600 hours already. Mainly because I've been doing some Wonder Trading just for fun and really focused on EV-training my Pokémon - even those not so good ones that people don't like. I actually have also like 100 hours of playtime on my Y and since I restarted it there's now about 50 hours already so I'd say I've been playing quite a lot. :D And I haven't even filled half of my National Pokédex yet. Basicly I don't mind spending time as I love the graphics and it's much more enjoyable to spend time EV-training than before. I don't know why but I love Kalos more than Unova and X/Y beats 5th Generation's games easily for me.

I hit 999:59 hours sometime this evening! I was disappointed to find that the counter does not go any higher. I figured with it being such a new game, they could have figured out how to let the counter go as high as 9999.

Oh well... guess I won't know how many hours I truly have anymore! :/ I won't restart the game because I don't want to lose my progress and this X version is my main copy. I'm currently working on my second play-through of Y (my third play-through overall).

Crazy to think I've spent so much time playing this game! XD It's awesome though! <3 And most of that time is from shiny hunting while doing other things, so it's not like I spent 999 hours of my life exclusively playing Pokemon.... lol!! I really love this game though!! :D So happy that they finally went 3d! I hope they never go back!

462 hours. Even though I got the game when it first came out, I didn't beat story mode until nearly 3 months, mostly because I was busy with school.

I'm pretty addicted to it... I carry my 3DS with me every where I go, and play it whenever I have free time. Either Maison or breeding.

I was super addicted to the game until my friend took my 3DS then I had withdrawals. Now I bought another 3DS, too bad the SD Card slot was broken so I had to send it back and get a replacement. I have Pokemon X just sitting here for me to start a new game and have a load of fun ;(!

The bad part about the 3DS besides the SD Card slot, was that I bought it off of eBay and the guy still hasn't received it even though I sent it out last Monday D:.

I really love the games and i can truly say i was pretty addicted as soon as they came out. Every day i would play for hours and hours, actually taking my time in exploring Kalos to the fullest. As soon as i beat the main story though my interest shrunk a lot, since im neither patient enough to complete the Pokedex nor into competitive battling. I wish the post-game was longer, but i can say it was a great and addicting adventure while it lasted (:

I'm around 90h in Pokemon X and 10h in Pokemon Y (acquired less than 20h ago lol). My boyfriend just got a 3DS and Y on the weekend and he's already beaten the game in about 20h. It makes me somewhat sad to know how short the storyline was, esp. with such a lack of post-game material.

In X, the story took around 15-20h for me, and the rest was between breeding Pokemon and around 30h mass-battling at the Battle Castle. I have so much monies now lol

I got it when it first came out and I played it for five days (no idea on how many hours I put in), but then I stopped playing till about 4-5 days ago. Since then I've put on about 15-25 hours, not really sure how many exactly. But these hours have been mostly just trying to complete the pokedex. I just hate the GTS now that everyone wants a genesect for a simple pokemon. Now its getting really boring again, so I wouldn't say that I'm addicted at all.

Not as much as the previous Pokemon games. Imo, XY has the worst post game of all time. There's not really much to do after you beat the Elite Four. You just catch three legendary Pokemon and they're extremely easy to find besides Zygarde. There's no post game story at all that makes you wanna continue playing besides Looker, but I find that pretty boring and wouldn't exactly call it a "story." All you do after beating The Elite Four is battle your rival any time, talk to Sycamore, Battle Maison, and Looker mission.

The post game pretty much wants you to grind & they made it easy as heck this gen. I'm guessing it's all about competitive battling now so I guess I'm not really much of a hardcore competitive player because I'd rather use Pokegen. I used to breed a lot though to get the perfect Pokemon, but eh... kinda tired of that now. If you're a competitive battler, you'll be addicted to this game due to it being the most competitive-friendly gen.

*Edit*
Forgot to mention that the Looker story itself isn't boring. My apologies for not explaining it correctly. The story was pretty intense & had lots of feels. I just hate that it took place in a huge city where you have to either call a taxi or bike it through instead of a new place or something. :l

Red/Blue/Yellow and Ruby/Sapphire beat out X/Y in terms of most sparse post-game. There is absolutely nothing to do in those games after beating the E4 besides catch a couple of legendaries.



In other news, I recently passed the 300 hour mark on my Y.

I think I have grown out of X&Y now. 228 hours on X and 450 hours on Y. I also have over 150 flawless shinies, but with Powersaves making everything accessible, I've lost motivation to continue.

Meanwhile I'll be waiting for the next major Pokemon game and play the **** out of it.

Ah, right. I forgot about those. Though my statement still holds true with Red/Blue/Yellow.
