    Overall, it was a pretty entertaining game. My only complaint is the difficulty, though. To me, there's a fine line between hard/challenging and unreasonable. While I love challenging games, this one took it way out there, often driving me to the point of frustration and insanity. Many times, I found myself grinding levels just to get past one tough trainer. My Pokemon ended up all being Lv100 by the end, and even so, I still had trouble, especially with that jerk of a final boss. xD

    The game is still a bit buggy, most notably where certain scripted events reoccur if you happen to go back to that area later. Though not game-breaking in any way, I found myself using the battles from these events to grind a little as well. xD

    And Adrian. Oh sweet Arceus, Adrian. He's almost unreasonably difficult. I wonder if I'm the only one to beat him without a Ferrothorn. The battle with him took so many restarts(and savestates), it isn't funny. It was mainly his Mewtwo, Lugia, and Cresselia that kept screwing me over.

    I don't think there are any post-game stuff, so I guess I'll end my playthrough there. Good luck on the sequel, and here's hoping it's difficulty is toned down significantly. I'll be looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
    No ferrothorn and no level 100s.... all ~80 and a 94 jolteon.. I didn't have much issues as far as trainers went; however, the last boss of the league had me going through my bags. I bought 45 revives just so i could keep swapping out as leech seed and toxic killed that jerk but other than him you have to admit this was the most addicting hack you've yet to play, right?
