i enjoy pokemon just like I enjoy kirby
however some of the get a little too easy, see black and white and epic yarn
Your definition of "easy" means that Pokemon probably jumped the shark for you. Just an FYI. At the very least, you'll want to wait for Gen VI.

Other than that Miltank and the few opportunities to grind, GSC was a walk in the park. Honestly, I would have put them ahead of BW if it weren't for the fact that Red is so pathetic. Though, I might be biased because the faster leveling made me fall in love with BW post-game. (Speaking of which, you're probably going to find every Pokemon game from this point forward as easy as BW unless they revert back to the old leveling sytem or make it easier to avoid trainers.)

Honestly, though, if you're playing Pokemon for a challenge, you should just stick to Gen I.
If you're playing Pokemon for a challenge, do a Nuzlocke run.
I really hate how I've made more than 12,000 posts here. Thankfully this swaying, moving Chandelure makes it all worth it.

Actually, this. Definitely this.

Well, it better be for 3DS and be a major upgrade visually. As far as graphics and sound quality have gone, the series has been beyond stagnant. Considering they're dealing with a much more powerful system, they should try to take advantage of it by using full 3D models and let you move diagonally, etc. While I enjoy pokemon some of it just feels archaic these days.
That might have to wait until Gen VI, especially since Game Freak has never made a full 3D game and they're going to need a good 2-3 years for such a task. Personally, I don't think they should bother unless they can do it right. I don't mind handheld games being 2D at all. 3D would be nice, but in the end it would be nothing more than eye candy.

But it would make some things a little faster.

Because that would break the game?

Not really, it just doesn't seem necessary... yet. I mean a bit further in the future, of course. But I'll need to know that GameFreak can pull off 3D character models in a handheld, and I'm not convinced they can. Not after they could have done it with Black and White but didn't. To me it doesn't seem like something they're capable of, unfortunately.

Plus I can't think of any thing that it would seriously help.

But I think the only reason I'm so against it is because of all the pixelated 2D sprites we still have in the overworld. If they try to combine 8-directional movement while keeping 2D sprites.... yeah that's what we DON'T need. I'd rather have 4-directional movement than 8-directional with sprites.

I do these all the time
the problem is, my final fantasy/dragon quest/every jrpg mentality causes me to overlevel pokemon and grind like a motherintercourse er
>arrive the second gym
>have 3 level 30 pokemon

honestly though
if i have one request for gray
make the character move faster
they're so slow
also make everything faster
it's all VERY slow

Good job! I, Viewtifulboy, declare you the CHAMPION!

HeartGold and SoulSilver had a feature that allowed you to run without holding the B button down.

I only buy one game a generation (Sapphire, Diamond, Black, etc.), even if FR/LG and HG/SS were the best in their gens. Granted, I did eventually manage to borrow FR from a friend, but he's not yet willing to part with his HG file, and I'll live without playing it for a few more years.

Actually, I've NEVER played a Johto game; I didn't really get into the main series of games until Hoenn, and while I did borrow Red from a friend to qualify as the first version I played through, I never really got to have a trip through Johto.

Ironically, the Pokemon from Johto are my favorite and the ones from Hoenn are my least favorite...
