What are you predictions?

05-20-2009, 02:16 PM
You already made a topic for this? Isn't it a bit early?
But to answer your question if they buy the gold silver remakes from japan then it will go by a lot faster and they could catch them all.

DrewStern
05-20-2009, 02:18 PM
I don't know last time they had some mistakes...

Its good to think ahead, it could help TSG plan. This topic might give them an idea.

05-20-2009, 02:24 PM
I hope they do get them G/S remakes, but it would be hell to try to follow the japanese language... So then again, no. I hope they do as last time, but more safely (no hacked/fake games) and somehow more organized. Though they were EXTREMLY organized last time.

No, I cant think of anything they can do better... Possibly get more TV connections so we dont have to see one of them on the lego-cam XD

The earliness does feel pretty funny, and pretty much in a negative way. The only thing I can do is wait and see.

Mega_Mario
05-20-2009, 02:29 PM
Hm... As early as this is, it should bring a good discussion.

There is only one thing I hope for: they take the Screen Burn In reduction off for MPR. Last time, I missed all of XD, I think. Hopefully next time I catch most of it.

DrewStern
05-20-2009, 02:32 PM
I was trying to get this in before its official, and the rush of topics.

Anyway, 72 hours is not long enough, neither is pirated rubies or forgetting how to get ho-oh.

puregamer123
05-20-2009, 02:36 PM
Seeing most of the marathon isn't really what I care for... I can't sit too long and watch a gaming marathon:P

[off topic]But I really want to see them every now and then during the marathon and check on the progress... Possibly watching when they defeat/catch special things. Also I like to keep an eye on the donations, as this is the main purpose of TSG. I cannot say how much I love TSG for their genious way of combining gaming with donations to charity. TSG, you are AWESOME.[/off topic]

But yes... A bit early, but early discussions are usefull for good planning, so idk XD

i hope they do it for a week like the FF marathon

puregamer123
05-20-2009, 02:50 PM
A week would be way too much... It should be possible to do it during those 72hrs... Just if they spend less time grinding in the grass and get it perfectly (or nearly) organized.

Um... you really should have waited til an official thread was made. And it is over half a year away. Urgh... I would like to see if the remakes of GS are in time for the marathon.

This is early, but it's still something great to talk about!
The only improvement I could think of would be to not buy their copy's online :lol:

Haruka
05-20-2009, 03:28 PM
The probable possibility of capturing Ho-oH and / or Lugia straight in HG/SS would be one of the most helpful feature when thought about the marathon. No need for long runs in XD or Colosseum.

the1stpkmnfan
05-20-2009, 03:49 PM
I wouldn't really want to watch a whole week Pokemarathon. It'f it's a week, it'll be done way before it's over. Three days is fine, even when we do use HGSS. It'll help a lot, and all 492 will be ours.

Slowflake
05-20-2009, 03:53 PM
Even so, as I said in the HGSS thread, playing Colosseum and XD on top of the main games would be helpful in a few aspects. No need to level the 600ers to 45-55, two extra Master Balls, non-running legendary dogs, and just overall having more games being run simultaneously are a few benefits. Of course they won't need to do that Ho-Oh thing again (though if they had to, no doubt they'd get it right the first time!). Plus it'd silence the folks who actually like these for some reason. :D

But even so, I don't think three days would be quite enough even with 12 games. A whole week? Not good either. Three days' the perfect length, even though I could see 20-ish species missing.

dryuriev7777
05-20-2009, 04:01 PM
I would die if there was a week long Poke-Marathon. At least with Final Fantasy there are some variety between the games, even though I know everyone will be completely exhausted and tired of FF by the end. Watching Pokemon would be like taking an hour long clip of Diamond and playing it over and over again for a week. After a couple days people would stop caring.

Haruka
05-20-2009, 04:09 PM
As seen of the popular opinion, the three days are a great duration. Why take on the Pokemon for one week, when the goal can be performed in that three days. It would've been done in December too, but as all of us know, the technology failed.

If something can be done in the best time / way then possible, it should be done like that, as TSG already does. :)

Slowflake
05-20-2009, 04:12 PM
Oh, and let's not forget twelve straight hours of Feebas fishing! This is something that should be done off-camera, of course. If it's even attempted... AFAIK it wasn't last time.

AlanEdgeHead

I think the three days is good, but if somehow they haven't caught 'em all yet, they should continue the Marathon until they do.

Ugh...worst Pokemon to catch in the wild. I hope they could do something like that, OR I can just donate it to TSG instead. So, I'd have to sacrifice the only Feebass I have right now. I guess we'll see.

I can't wait for this pokemon marathon. I liked the first one alot (I laughed when a mob of Bidoofs were attacking a Kyogre in MPR). I wonder how certain event pokemon willl be caught like Deoxys, Darkrai and Shaymin.

the1stpkmnfan
05-20-2009, 07:39 PM
Deoxys- US Gamestop Pokemon DP Event: June 20-21, 2008 and June 27-28, 2008.
Darkrai- Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia or Pokemon: The Rise of Darkrai event at Toys R US (May 31, 2008-June 1, 2008)
Shaymin- Phil or erik got one during the US Shaymin Event at Toys R Us. (February 8-14, 2009)

I hope that clears it up. ;)

windows98
05-20-2009, 09:00 PM
if you do end up giving them a feebas, breed another one first. no point giving away you're only one when its so easy to breed them.

KingBroly
05-20-2009, 09:16 PM
Maybe an extra 12 or 24 hours wouldn't be so bad for a Pokemon Marathon. That way you could get an extra set of Pokemon donated from each GBA game to the DS versions and there won't be that much of a strain or rush to get them all.

the1stpkmnfan
05-20-2009, 10:32 PM
I will more than likely do that, windows. Im working well with the Feebas I have right now, to evolve it that this. I'll more than likely breed one, since this was SO lucky of me to get at first.

But that is I only wonder who I can give it to from TSG.

Slowflake
05-21-2009, 07:22 AM
I thought no external trades was one of the rules, which means they'll have to catch their own. And then there's the matter of evolving it, which is best done in DPP due to berry availability (as opposed to catching, where RSE is much better).

erik
05-21-2009, 02:07 PM
yeah if external trades were allowed we could probably finish in a day because I have every legendary except deoxys and jirachi on my pearl cartridge, along with every other pokemon

feebas took me an hour to catch, and took bud only 30 minutes, who was in charge of it during the marathon?

Slowflake
05-21-2009, 03:52 PM
AFAIK no one even attempted to catch one, it's simply too tedious, and besides, it became obvious after a while that getting everything would be impossible, so the players (rightly) focused on stuff that was doable. Besides, it's not just finding a Feebas that's annoying, evolving it is as well.

Im positive that this 2nd time wont go wrong, like Soinc says "Live and Learn". Pokemon Ruby crashing was only an accident. Im sure it wont happen again.

Haruka
05-22-2009, 12:31 AM
True. The technology failure were quite one of the most effecting factors on the "fail." I'm sure this marathon will be succeeded great, plus the probable possibilities of HG/SS.

Slowflake
05-22-2009, 07:35 AM
And let's not forget Platinum and Emerald. As I said somewhere else, if they manage to get their hands on 12 players (if they're willing to go outside of the core TSG crew it can be done), there's a real chance of pulling this off.

ditto493
05-22-2009, 11:32 AM
When I was trying to catch Feebass on my Ruby it only took me about 30 min, But I still havn't been able to evolve it so I caught a male and a female so I could breed them until I successfully evolve it.

What they should do is just go to the store and buy a brand new copy of each game they're going to use, That way thet don't have to worry about hacks or batteries.

If I could I would come down and help with the Pokemon Marathon, but I doubt my parents would let me.

Anyways, I'm sure that this year will be alot better than last year, Good luck and have an EPIC SUCCESS!!!

AlanEdgeHead
05-26-2009, 02:25 AM
Feebas is lame finding. That's why when you find it, catch as many as possible, because even remembering the space won't let you keep getting them. The trendy saying will change on it's own eventually.

But I have faith in the guys for this attempt.

Slowflake
05-26-2009, 07:33 AM
If this weren't a speed run, I'd say catch one, then breed more if the one you caught turns out to have a -SA nature. But you need to be quick here, so catching three or four should make you safe.

And for the uninitiated, the reason why you want to avoid a -SA nature is because they're nearly impossible to evolve due to them hating dry Pokéblocks/Poffin. Not completely impossible, but almost. On the other hand, getting a +SA nature has the opposite effect, and it's a lot easier to evolve.

Still, why did they make Feebas even harder to find in DPP? They doubled the amount of tiles available, but REDUCED the number of Feebas tiles from 6 to 4.

DrewStern
06-30-2009, 02:54 PM
Sorry to Necropost, but I have an Idea since it is a Pokemon marathjon, maybe you could extend the duratrion and play the classics and the spin offs along with your 493 (if HG&SS don't have anything new) Caught Pokemon Goal.

Slowflake
06-30-2009, 03:18 PM
One obvious problem: what's the point of playing RBY and GSC if their remakes are already covered?

Also, with a September 12 release date, this all but guarantees HGSS will be played. I hope you guys got players who can understand moonspeak. Official word for now is that Colosseum and XD are NOT coming back, though. This will complicate things a bit...

the1stpkmnfan
06-30-2009, 03:28 PM
So we're seeing the games that are going to be played are:

Ruby
Sapphire
FireRed
LeafGreen
Diamond
Pearl
Platinum
HeartGold
SoulSilver

And games that wont be played are:
Emerald
Colosseum
XD

Platinum will help out a lot, so I don't see why they won't play Platinum.

zach2m1
06-30-2009, 03:32 PM
*zach2m1 thinks this is a bit early for this topic to be made ._.;*
But anyways there is not much to discuss. They already have everything planned out from the previous marathon. The reason they weren't fully successful was because the Ruby cart had a dead battery in it. It is actually going to be easier for them due to the fact that Heart Gold and Soul Silver are coming out so catching the 2nd season worth of Pokemon will be a lot easier for TSG. Other than that there isn't really much to discuss though.

*zach2m1 thinks this is a bit early for this topic to be made ._.;*
I thought the same thing when this thread was first made, which was probably weeks ago.

Yeah, not a lot to discuss right now. But all there is, is just the games they might be playing again, and which ones arent going to be played.

Im keeping my promoting, for this marathon, a secret. If I tell what Im gonna do, then someone else might go do it first. Then Im gonna be so mad. :evil:

zach2m1
06-30-2009, 03:53 PM
Yeah, not a lot to discuss. But all there is right now are just the games they might be playing again, and which ones arent going to be played once more.

Well think bout it 1stpkmnfan. Before you came people from TSG were putting up exact directions and descriptions of where to pick up Pokemon. Sonic62 helped out with this the most creating an amazing list. But it doesn't really matter of what games they are playing as long as they catch all 491 Pokemon.

From my knowledge and memory I think they will be playing these games. Feel free to correct me.

Fire Red
Leaf Green
Ruby
Sapphire
Diamond
Pearl
Platinum (Giratina Orgin form)
Heat Gold/ Soul Silver (doesn't really matter w/e games they can get a hold of are great)

Now I am not sure if they will be playing Colosseum to get Celebi maybe I am not really sure.

Those are the games that came to my mind from re-calling the Pokemon marathon last year. But it doesn't really matter if they beat the games as long as they catch 'em' all.

the1stpkmnfan
06-30-2009, 04:58 PM
True, but completing some of the games (or just known to beat the Elite 4) are required so they are able to catch Pokemon that only appear after you be the elite four. Like Mewtwo, or whatever.

And btw, I think that's the same list I listed a few post earlier. :P 'Cause Im guessing those will be the games played overall.

But hey, that's pretty interesting others told about where to get Pokemon.

And speaking of the exlusive legendaries: yeah, we know erik (I think) is handling Deoxys and Shaymin. Celebi, I guess for Ja. Colo. So overall, all the exclusive legendaries are handled. Though, Im sure Britt will be happy to take my Jirachi.

Slowflake
06-30-2009, 05:05 PM
No Emerald? Now that comes as a shock. It's not absolutely required, but neither is Platinum, and it's most definitely going to be played.

the1stpkmnfan
06-30-2009, 05:10 PM
The reason why Platinum would be played is because it's got more Pokemon added everywhere in Wild areas. And since you're able to meet 210 Pokemon, before getting the National Dex, that's almost half of the total Pokemon caught already. And also, Giratina is catchable in Platunum quicker than Diamond and Pearl.

With HGSS, we'll easily catch all the Johto Pokemon. Same with Hoenn Pokemon, for R/S & Kanto Pokemon with Fr/Lg. You know, I think they got everything locked up. :P

I dont see why they got to play Emerald, and to be honest, I was shocked too when I was there for the first Pokethon. I guess it's just like playing Ruby and Sapphire all over again. :/

Slowflake
06-30-2009, 05:28 PM
Then again, if last year was any indication, any help getting Rayquaza out of the way would be a good thing. An Emerald player would even be able to catch Rayquaza with the Master Ball, as Lati@s would already be covered by Ruby and Sapphire. Why does it make a difference? Well, Rayquaza's level 70 in all three versions, but in Emerald it's catchable right after quelling Kyogre and Groudon. Therefore making it a lot easier to do whatever you want afterwards.

Besides, the Hoenn Dex is almost as big as the expanded Sinnoh Dex, and contains more Pokémon that come from that particular generation.

Hoenn Dex: 135 new, 77 old (66.8%)
Regular Sinnoh Dex: 81 new, 70 old (53.6%)
Expanded Sinnoh Dex: 100 new, 110 old (47.6%)

Yea we had a huge entire topic. With the limited time and everything. TSG wanted to know how to catch all the Pokemon quickly. But like I said with the list, the only reason they played Colosseum was to get Celebi. But I think there might be and easier way of getting that pokemon due to Heart Gold and Soul Silver coming out.

Dialga is riding on Bidoof!

Pure epic win right there.

So anyway, I mentioned both Feebas and why Emerald should be played earlier in this thread, and I realized both should technically be linked together. It's rather obvious any attempt at catching it should NOT be done in DPP, so that leaves RSE. Now, if only two of them are actually played, and Feebas ends up taking some time to find, it's going to make it very difficult to nab all the Hoenn Pokémon in time. Not to mention, as I've already said, that the third generation is very populous to begin with.

Even though it may be a bit early, I expect something bad to happen as the same thing happened to Pokemon Ruby. Hope it doesn't and they should easily get them all if they decide to import HG/SS. From all the experience they have, this one should go better than last time.

Ruby and Sapphire are gimmes, so is FRLG, so is DPP, so that's a minimum of seven. Other possible, but not certain games are Emerald, HGSS, Colosseum and XD, which is five others. So it's going to be between 7 and 12, but of course the more the better.

Skeletor1991
07-19-2009, 06:31 PM
Well I know they said they were going to go for EVERY Pokemon this time if heard right. I think the more games you have going the better.

the1stpkmnfan
07-19-2009, 06:39 PM
Ruby Sapphire, FireRed, LeafGreen, Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HearGold, SoulSilver and Ranch. All the games I would believe will be in this marathon. And that'd be 9 players total, and yes the more the marrier.

Emerald, Colosseum and XD are totall knock-outs. Ranger 1-2 seem possible just for some Legendaries (Manaphy/Darkrai), but that'd be it. Though, I dont see why we can't have a bonus game like Pokemon Snap or Hey You, Pikachu for fun. I'd love to watch the fail of Pikahcu not hearing you. xD

Slowflake
07-19-2009, 07:16 PM
For Ranger 2, you'd have to have a copy with the event missions downloaded, but not done, and those aren't easy to find, for obvious reasons.

And I still find odd that Emerald won't be played, but Platinum will. You seem confident that that setup can work for getting them all, though, so I won't question you.

Yes they will. Once the games come out in Japan, I believe we'll be importing them and they'll arrive way before the marathon. :)

You know, I dont see why we cant play Emerald. Just in case.

KingBroly
07-19-2009, 10:06 PM
Pokemon's not really a game you need to know Japanese to play. Sure, a guide might be necessary, but you can definitely make it through. I made it through Pocket Monsters Gold with a guide many, many years ago. Then I turned around a year later and bought both Pokemon Gold and Silver

Slowflake
07-20-2009, 05:31 AM
That and if you follow Serebii during the release timeframe, you're going to be aware of all the changes. Still, in essence, it's a 10-year old game being remade, so everyone already has an idea what to do.

They're serious. In Pokemon Marathon '08. They attempted it, but sadly they didn't cathc them all. ): So they are going to try again this year, with HG SS 's release, "cathing them all" should be easy.

gama-chan
07-20-2009, 01:06 PM
well now they actually can catch them all! last pokemon marathon, they could only go so far legitly without cheating. This time around they actually can have access to the legendary pokemon they could not get last time like Arceus and I think Shaymin. Let's just hope the whole 100 floor in colloseum doesn't happen again ha ha.

If for some reason they play Colosseum again, they won't even need to get Ho-Oh, Heart Gold will take care of that.

But I've mentioned this before, I think the big challenge this time will be Feebas/Milotic. And maybe Rayquaza again as well if whoever is supposed to catch it doesn't practice climbing the Sky Pillar a LOT.

Jran Sakarra

Actually Jran, so do I. I've pretty much planned for Arceus back in late June. But if anything goes wrong with mine, I guess they can go for you.

Rayquaza shouldn't be a problem. Last time, they caught it without a problem. It was just the second time that took awhile. And it was just for a nickname. Because of a donation.

But I swear I remember seeing the Ruby player spend HOURS trying to climb the forsaken tower... and then it just wouldn't stay alive, no thanks to Outrage confusion.

They have done that with just about every generation so far.
They just did that with Platinum. They usually have a main Legendary Pokemon on each sepreate game. Then there is one legendary that can be found in both, just have to look for them.

To be fair, Emerald has a little extra when it comes to Rayquaza: you can catch it right after the scene with Kyogre and Groudon! That means you can bring it to the last gym and the E4... and on top of that, it still comes at level 70! The obvious drawback, though, is trying to capture a high-level uber with a stat distribution that makes it difficult to do so (high attack, low defense Pokémon are harder to capture than the reverse because they can sweep you more easily while attempting to catch it). And it has Rest to force you to weaken it all over again. But if you can get it, more power to you.

See I went and got him on Sapphire and that took me 2 hours with Ultras. Like I put earlier, I was actually using the Rest to anvantage. That way I could raise my caught rate.

Remember Baka, only the GBA to DS games will be played in this marathon. Since GB games can't transfer over to the GBAs. Sad, I know. But I believe they will have all the cartridges in no time, but it cant hurt to ask if they need one.

They do use the GBA SP to play RS and FrLg. From which I recall seeing during the house tour. But when one is ready to be seen on the stream, they just move it to the Gamecube and Gameboy Player so they can capture it.

Though Im not sure if there will be more than 1 game appearing on the screen this time. I remember that the feed went down partically because of that.

the1stpkmnfan
07-26-2009, 10:06 PM
That is true. And yeah, a lot of games played at the same time make "catching them all" a good streak.

I believe they had an organized list to determine which gamer has to catch certain Pokemon. Since there are quite a few that don't appear to be catchable in the opposite game. (Like Sudowoodo in Diamond and Mr. Mime in Pearl).

There's just this feeling I have that we'll catch all the Pokemon this year. Plus, I can't wait for Britt to demonstration on how you get the thingy changed out of your Gold/Silver. Like Gwellin told us.

Yeah, all the event pokemon kind of ruins the "Gotta Catch Em All" possibility for some people (though wi-fi trades have helped a bit). But I agree, watching the guys try to catch all the pokemon definitely brought back memories of playing the original games and trading with friends.

Actually, it is quite easy to catch 'em all on your own in the current generation. Since no one else played Pokemon among my friends, I had to get them all on my own. I am taking my time about it since I am not in a rush. Except for Jirachi and Serebii, I knew how I was going to get every Pokemon released to date. I got to see those from a friend online and Arceus from a frat brother from another chapter. Since I screwed up my Ruby game, all I need to complete my dex is Latias (and getting off my duff and actually raising what I need). It is very hard work and takes time, but catching 'em all solo is doable.

Ash hasn't prevented it from evolving or anything... Perhaps it simply doesn't have enough experience yet and will evolve later. Or perhaps he'll try to prove to Paul that he can beat him, even without fully evolved Pokemon, or something to that effect.

I think this starts the same day as my winter vacation starts. Best way to start a vacation in my opinion. :D

And I mean, we got 20k in three days during the Final Fantasy marathon, who says we can't do that for the Pokemon one too? Especially since they're starting to get a larger fan base. :3

Well that would be really good if we hit 20k, problem is this is ALOT smaller marathon than the FF marathon. So you have to put that into the though as well.

I think if they import either, HG/SS they will definitely finish. Johto was the only prob, right?

Well, now that Darkrai will be available with the new event (http://www.pokemonplatinum.com/#/pokemon/darkrai/), maybe they wont need to play through Pokemon Ranger Shadows of Almia for the Darkrai event (well I guess there still is Manaphy...). They would have to do something similar to last year with Darkrai, though, since the event will not last that long.

_awesome_

Wow, I never thought they were gonna do this event in the US, so this will be great for TSG to do instead of Ranger 2. Though, that event is pretty much over with if they havent downloaded the event. Or gotten one from the 10th movie event. But nevertheless, this is a good notice Mario. Ill need to do that event too. :D

I had a lot of trouble with the first game. I just found the capture style to be quite difficult.
Once the second game came out, well it was just the opposite. It seemed to be too easy.

I would guess that if they don't have Shadows of Almia with the Manaphy mission, they will probably use the original Ranger, as it is always available. (Although, I remember reading somewhere that once you get Manaphy, you can never get another one on that cartridge. Not sure if it is true, though.)

the1stpkmnfan
07-30-2009, 12:00 PM
Oh yeah, I keep forgeting the Manaphy Mission is in Almia as well. :P But anyway, I had some trouble with Ranger 1, but Ranger 2 was a bit easier. I think. But Im pretty sure Ranger gamers aren't need for the marathon anymore. Think we good already.

Maybe we can get some time in Pokemon Snap. So we Gotta Snap em all.

Normally I'd be like..."Games played during free time...don't hold your breath", but Pokemon does tend to be different in the sense that you've got somewhere in the neighbourhood of a billion players all going at once, so I guess extras are somewhere in the realm of possibility.
Snap would be cool, I just downloaded it off of VC and I'd forgotten how fun it is. We really need a new one of these.

I totally agree that Pokemon Snap would be cool to see. It's a pretty short game, but it's incredibly fun. And I also agree that they need to make a new one. There's obviously plenty more Pokemon they could include. :D

They won't be played. Only RSE, FRLG, DPP and HGSS. After all, how are you supposed to capture Pokémon in Stadium? And even if you could, how could you transfer them to a generation 4 cart?

Of course. The talk about Snap and Stadium is just for the possibility of playing them to pass the time if every Pokemon is able to be caught before the marathon ends. If that happens, I would really like to see Snap played--really liked that game.

I meant as part of the marathon. It just seems like some people think the Pokéthon works like all the other marathons. Personally, I'd like to see Snap in overtime too. I wasn't a big fan of the game, but it'd be a nice change of pace after so many hours of RPGing ten games at the same time. Hope we see a bit of Ranch too... that was one of the more memorable parts last year.

I can tell it's not gonna be fun for some of them when they find out RBY and GSC aren't being played... because for some reason FRLG and HGSS just isn't the same. The Pokémon fanbase is weird that way, older automatically seems to mean better.

I don't think anyone will be heartbroken. I don't think I saw any negativity in the chat during the first Pokemon Marathon. Everyone just seems to love Pokemon. There were occasions were the chat would spam fail, like when Chase tried to do the Mach Bike part of Rayquaza's dungeon, but that's about as bad a I remember.

I don't think people care to much which versions are played.

Skeletor1991
08-04-2009, 07:08 AM
Well like I said earlier, I have a copy of SPH that has Rayquaza on. I would give it to them if they want it. Save a good hour of getting to him and another GOOD hour or two trying to catch him lol

Shiron
08-04-2009, 12:58 PM
Well, if they import both Heart Gold and Soul Silver, there should hopefully be no such problem with Rayquaza... That is, of course, Game Freak are going to be brats again and put some sort of Mach Bike (or rather now, full-speed mode on the bike) puzzle in front of the path to it again.

Slowflake
08-04-2009, 04:38 PM
Odds are, though, that Rayquaza can only be unlocked by HGSS Kyogre and Groudon, not ones from RSE. So the Ruby and Sapphire players would just have to kill Kyogre and Groudon, and let HGSS do all the dirty work? Well, if it gets them Rayquaza faster...

And speaking of which, they'll have an event Arceus, right? Does that mean they could gain access to the Dialga/Palkia/Giratina event as well? These come at level 1, so they'd obviously be easier to catch than in DPP... and with two carts, you could catch two of them at level 1... That means if all of this happens, the HGSS players would have to get the dogs, Lugia, Ho-Oh, Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza, and two of the DPP uber trio. That's a lot!

That IS a lot, so I would see all GBA and DS games haven an equal duty for Legendaries. Plus, I stand by this, so the HGSS games don't get totally spoiled, so American and European gamers can check them out for when HGSS arrive for them.

Plus, I keep forgetting to imgaine what wonders they will do with my event Arceus. :P

Slowflake
08-05-2009, 06:52 PM
Equal duty's nice in theory, but in practice the allure of a 46-level drop on two ubers and the chance to bypass the /%"&?$%? Sky Pillar entirely can gain them a lot of time. Unless, of course, whoever's meant to catch Rayquaza practices the bajeezus out of the Mach Bike puzzles before the marathon. And brings a bunch of high-level OUs to do the actual catching, because a level 6 Wingull can only do so much.

I'd also like to point out that Heatran and Regigigas should be reserved for Platinum for a similar reason - those level drops compared to D/P (20 for Heatran, 69 for Regigigas) will be very helpful.

the1stpkmnfan
08-05-2009, 06:57 PM
I wont disagree on how the Sky Pillar went, so Im gonna go with the fact that getting that extra time can lead to Legendary Pokemon Nicknaming, for Donations, can arise.

And I can agree with Regigigas and Heatran. Another good reason we need Platinum so badly. :P

Slowflake
08-05-2009, 07:33 PM
Yeah, Platinum is the key to success this time around.

Don't want to argue, though, but I just realized the weather trio, especially Rayquaza, might benefit from a level reduction in HGSS.

And all this talk about who should catch who is making me wonder how the planning is done between the players, anyway. Is there any planning at all, even, or on the contrary, is even Bidoof attributed to someone before the thing even starts?
