The game is very addictive. I wanna know what game had you up all night. It was Emerald that had me up all night. The whole Battle Frontier thing was a smart move on Game Freak's part. Also the extras, oh man the extras. I got my Pokemon Diploma (This achievement is only enabled if you have pretty much all of the Pokemon RPG's) and of the other available things for the game.

I used to stay up late as heck playing my old Gold version. But since i'm older now, staying up late isn't a problem, but that's the only one that ever kept me up.

Really? I got Black version and I've been playing it for a while when I don't feel Emeraldy

Both fireRed and Emerald,trying to catch Mewtwo and Rayquaza in pokeballs is tough.

When I started Diamond, I screwed up my whole sleeping routine. I was up until four in the morning and slept until one in the afternoon. My grades even started to slip from the usual A's to B's and C's. Not Good.

Really? You can use a little in-game hack. When you run into Rayquaza or Meowth, use the ultra balls(on Rayquaza only) it won't catch him at the first 3,400 times(LOL) then use a timer ball, then use the pokeball three times it should catch him.

Nice topic!
Definitely GOLD!!I can remember staying up till like uhhh the sun rises... Seriously!
Its soo addicting compared to red and blue... The whole colour thang and new pokemon made it the best!
Dang! Could somebody here lend me ya DS sooo i COULD TRY the new, awesome, cool diamond or pearl... Its practically tearin me apart when i see a guy playin it... Pretty plz...

Haha, I remember when I got my Ruby version. I just couldn't stop playing it. I think I spent like two all-nighters only decorating my Secret Base. Good times. ♥

...and why did they have to make the Secret Bases so iffy on DP? ;__;

July 14th, 2008, 11:15 AM
All of them had me up. They are really addicting. By far, the 1 that had me up the most was prolly Silver or Ruby

July 14th, 2008, 11:49 AM
I didn't have the energy to stay up all night till Gold and Silver came out. Since then, I have stayed up till about 2AM every night trying to beat whichever game I'm playing.

July 14th, 2008, 11:54 AM
G/S/C was the first I played that seriously, every day as soon as I woke up I biked over to my friends' house to trade Mystery Gifts. Good times.

D/P/P though has really kept me up a lot though, especially over friends' houses with underground stuff.

July 14th, 2008, 11:56 AM
Honestly, no videogames can keep my up, literally, all night long.. but some can come close. Maybe 3-4am. Computer aside, the only Pokemon game that has done that was Ruby back when I first got it.

Good times, good times.

Nowdays I'm at 3am playing D/P occasionally, but the game isn't what keeps me up... I'd be up regardless. nn;

Hmm I can't remember! I remember playing Emerald at night time, but only because I wasn't sleepy. I remember I was on holiday when I bought Diamond (lol) and I stayed up late when I was defeating Galectic at the lake with dead Magikarp's and when I was trying to defeat the Elite 4.

July 14th, 2008, 12:34 PM
OH RIGHT also Mystery Dungeon 2, if we're counting side games. It's actually the only game (not just pokemon, ANY game) in a long long time that I've been able to play for a long period of time at once without a break. Usually, even with my favorite games, I can only play for like an hour or two at the most before having to take a break. With MD2, I could not put that game down.

I just stayed up all night trading Pokemon over Wifi on my Pearl Version. I never really got sleepy, so I got a lot of Pokemon! I could never put my Nintendo DS down trading my Pokemon. I'm a really good trainer, too so it was all worth it to get even better. Ok, see ya!

July 14th, 2008, 12:56 PM
the game that made me stay up all night was well wen i was 6 playing pokemon yellow with my flashlight.... i stayed up until 7:00 am and i went to school and got suspened for sleeping at recess and not come inside and well i wasnt allowed to play pokemon for the rest of the school year :'(

July 14th, 2008, 2:06 PM
LeafGreen had me staying up all night, training my Nidoran. But unfortunately, I fell asleep without saving and lost the 10+ levels I got when my Gameboy ran out of power. xP

July 14th, 2008, 5:00 PM
I'd have to say Diamond because I wanted to see the return of the scenery transition.

July 14th, 2008, 5:16 PM
Hmm... Colosseum. Yes, I'm aware that's not a version, but I stayed up all night to beat it. PMD had me up rather late on a few school nights (both PMD1 and PMD2) as well...

July 15th, 2008, 5:24 PM
Gold/Silver/Crystal did that job the best of all the Pokémon games, for me at least

July 15th, 2008, 5:37 PM
Heh, I remember staying up half the night playing my Blue Version. Other than that, I've always shut the game off when it was time for bed.

most resently pokemon diamond has kept me up all night mainly cuz ive been trying to beat it in one night ^^

July 15th, 2008, 5:51 PM
Mostly Pearl. Though i preferred other versions, its easier to link up with d/p, and me and my friends have been playing like crazy, then battling. Not only that, but cause a couple friends of mine dont know how to Ev train (let alone know what evs are), im ev training for them, which just last night i stayed up till 2:00 doing it...and only ended up finishing 3/6. I'm actually doing that right now...im so nice.

July 15th, 2008, 5:57 PM
It was silver for me i rember plaing it with with those little attachement lights that let me play in the dark i rember playing while i was on holidays and i bearly sleep for all 2 weeks

July 15th, 2008, 6:52 PM
I remember the first time I played Pokemon Emerald. I stayed up pretty late that night playing it.

Just last night, I was up until about 3 AM playing PMD: Explorers of Time.
I made it to the part where

Flara and Cherri were dragged into the future by Dusknoir. I was curious about what the dungeons would be like in the "paralyzed" world of the future.
(What I really wanted was to see if I could make it back to the past, but it was getting too late at night to keep playing.)

I'm like YOOM-TAH where PMD2 is concerned - I seriously can't put that game down. It's just such a great game.

July 16th, 2008, 11:47 AM
Well it didn't keep me up all night but there are three games that I actually fell asleep playing. I also always seem to be in a certain place in each game when I fall asleep

1. Emerald: Usually in a battle
2. Pearl: Usually surfing in that river that leads to the Fuego Iron Works
3. Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time: Usually in Treasure Town

I'm just hanging around at the Battle Frontier tht's all.

I stayed all night to catch a female Banette with a proper nature in Diamond. I had to change the hour because 04:00 AM has passed :{ ...

All The ones I have played kept me up all night, so thats Blue, Silver, Fire Red, Emerald and Pearl!

September 30th, 2008, 11:47 AM
Leaf Green, Diamond, Emerald, Pokemon Battle Revolution all kept me up until the hours of the early morning.

Leaf Green: Playing a 1st gen remake in better graphics, animations, sprites, etc is exciting! It was a dream come true to be able to play the "good ol' days" again but in a better way. Mewtwo was a huge reason also. I wanted Mewtwo badly, and it was a fun time trying to catch it.

Diamond: When it was released, I jumped up for joy and bought it right away. I stayed up many nights just playing it as much as I could seeing everything I could see and exploring every spot in the game.

Emerald: The Regis were a blast to catch, Rayquaza was even better, he made me drool at night before I caught him. Kyogre and Groudon were also "drool-material." The Battle Tower was also addicting, challenging, but addicting....

Pokemon Battle Revolution: What an amazing game for hardcore pokemon fans. The graphics made me orgasm for hours, lol. I spent so much time dowloading pokemon from my Diamond version and beating all the colosseums and matches in Stargazer Colosseum, I also spent many hours trying out every move to see what the animation looked like in the game with its shimmering graphics. I also wanted the mystery gift Magmortar, Electivire, and surfing Pikachu.

I was so excited for 4th Gen (Because I got a DS months after D/P came out =/) that I couldn't stop playing. I was also excited for competitive battling, until I started disliking it. >=/
