The Winstrate Family was a piece of cake. Defeated all four family members as easily as brushing off dust from my shoulder.

...okay, enough of the similes. Yes they were quite easy for me to beat. Loved the extra experience points they gave me. Didn't really like it that they didn't give me the chance to switch my lead Pokemon before each battle though.

Fun battles but unfortunately not hard at all. R/S/E weren't exactly the hardest of games though but I would've liked a bigger challenge anyway.. I demolished even Vito (?) in Victory Road.

I took on all of the Winstrates as well and had no trouble with the fact that you weren't able to heal between the battles.. I just can't seem to remember if I took them on whenever I first approached their house on my journey or if I went back to them after I had gotten into the Hall of Fame to determine how much of a challenge they were.

    I never had any problems with them at all. Also, I didn't even know that the son was on Victory Road. I don't pay attention to the small details very often. Also, a lot of you are saying you would have liked to have been able to verse all 5 after the elite 4. Well, if you think about it, they aren't really training. Only he was. So, really, they would be about the same level and he'd be a lot higher. It wouldn't make sense.

      It was an interesting diversion in a game filled with interesting diversions, like the Trick House. But it wasn't the most memorable part of the game, you know? Kind of like a weak mini-gym that was just kind of there.

        In the (hopeful) remakes, I hope this family actually provides a challenge. I usually just used them to raise my weaker Pokémon because they were always so simple.
