      For Black, I beat it within 36 hours, but I played basically non stop, I got the game in the morning, and had an entirely free day to play.

        I can usually beat any main series pokemon game in about a week.But could beat it in one to two days if I feel like it.

        I beat the main story on my Black in 13 days, shortest time I've ever finished the main story of a Pokemon game.

          I consider beating the game as getting everything in the game and maxing out your trainer card, which I am still working on due to those medals. But anyways, it usually takes me 3 to 4 days to beat the story of main series Pokemon games; it would take a shorter time, but education stops me.

            I don't know, let's ask Mr. Owl.

            "Let's find out. One...two...three...*crunch* Three."

            Tootsie Pop commercials aside, I take my sweet time when playing. If I went all-out and didn't stop to level up Pokémon all over my PC (nothing in there under Lv.18 ATM in my White 2 PC except for my Genesect, which I just realized I never used; Black has a lot of bred Lv.1 ATM), I could probably do it in a few days; the thing is, with the ideal to change my types in my party based on what I'm facing, I don't do it that fast. I think when I entered the Hall of Fame I had something like 170 hours, possibly much more (now over 380 hours with a completed Pokédex but haven't bothered with the Champion yet with Pokémon maxed out at Lv.75; could easily get them higher off of Audinos when I go for it and pick a team).

              Someday I'll find out. In fact, I was considering doing a speed run of White, so maybe I'll see.

              Normally though, it's not days - it's weeks or even months. For instance, it took me 300-and-some hours, spaced out over a couple of months, to finish the main storyline in White. That's because my favorite part of a new generation is discovering and getting to know all the new pokemon. I use everything and level them all up at least until their final evolution, just so I can see what they are and what they can learn and do. I spend days on a single route, hunting for good stuff and leveling things up and evolving them and seeing what new moves they learn and such. And I often double back - for instance, I might start to level something up and find out that it learns a bunch of physical moves, but the one I caught is a Modest, so I go back and find another one with a better nature. And so on...

              I play for the journey - not for the destination. Though, again, I have been kicking around the idea of doing a speed run, just because it'd be something different for me. We'll see...

                For me, almost 2 days, like 42 hours at least. I remember the number of days it took me to go to the metagame:

                1st day: 2 badges
                2nd day: 7 badges
                3rd day: 8 badges and beat the game

                It was in April 2011.

                  Okay while originally I was going to keep it here because B/W are games and not a game technically (plus I really wasn't sure which you meant - and the responses also convinced me, too), but by your response I now realise you definitely meant all games, and not just B/W. Because of this, I'm going to throw it over to Pokemon Gaming Central. Keep in mind that only questions specific to Black and White fit here, okay? :)

                  I never like to complete a new game in the first day, it feels too rushed otherwise. I like to take in all of the new surroundings, features etc so it usually takes me a week or so.

                  About two weeks for me...if I play them for about 1-2 hours a day. I generally get about 2 badges every other day and it takes me about a few days to get over a tough gym battle. Elite Four is just a piece of cake in all games I beat imo, so that usually takes me about an hour and a half.

                    A few months, no joke, I take forever to beat a Pokemon game nowadays, thats because my attention span for the Pokemon games is slowly decreasing.

                    But if I have the mood to play, it would be 1~2 days.

                      It usually takes me about a week and a half to beat the main game.

                      It takes me around a month or two to beat a game, depending on how much free time I have.

                        I'm playing through Ruby again and sit at 15 hours of playing time and I haven't Ben faced Norman yet. I never really kept track but it'll take me, at this rate, close to 40ish hours?

                          It used to take me months to beat a game, but nowadays I can usually speed through a storyline in a couple days to a week. I usually don't sit and play for hours on end, so I couldn't beat a game in like a day.

                          If it's the first time I'm playing through a new game, I try to stretch it out as long as I possibly can (my current playthrough of White 2, for example, started back at the beginning of December, and I'm only 5 badges in).

                          If I'm playing through on a subsequent run, though, I could probably finish one of the games in a day or two if I was highly committed.

                            Usually somewhere around two weeks if it's my first time. It did take me like a month to beat Emerald my first time playing it though.

                                10 days or less. Emulator takes less.

                                RSE seems to drag on, and on, and on, though... DPP is a close second, although I find Platinum more fun to play.

                                50% of that time, I spend on grinding. Also, in the new games (everything past 2nd gen) I spend a lot of time find the "correct" Pokémon, one with a good nature, and male. I'm considering dropping these requirements in my next playthroughs for the sake of convenience.

                                Emulator has speed button. This is used only for grinding and fighting grunts. I found that much of the reason I didn't enjoy RSE as much as I could've back when they were released was the speed button.

                                  For me, this question was put to the test when my cousin came down from New Jersey a few summers ago. I had a week to spend with them (his immediate family included) and he requested I help him through a file on his Red version that he just restarted.

                                  When I wasn't hanging out with them at the beach -- the only place they ever wanted to be, bless their hearts -- I was plowing through his game he lent me upon request.

                                  Took me around two days, which really surprised me. If I calculate using the time just spent playing the game, it might've been closer to 9-10 hours.

                                    If I'm trying and have enough time, I can beat a Pokemon game within five days or so. My record is my most recent file of Crystal, which I started on a Friday evening and beat on the following Sunday morning. Lately, though, I'm more ambivalent about Pokemon, and I've had Pokemon White 2 for months and haven't yet beaten it (it is in Japanese, though, which is cumbersome after a while, even though I somewhat speak it).

                                    Uh.

                                    I thought it had taken me ~10 days to finish White the first time around, but thinking about it, I got it on March 6th 2011 and finished the main story by March 10th 2011.

                                      Maybe your definition of beating the game has shifted or the number "10" has just been ingrained in your mind.
