Just playing for fun in White. My current team: Charizard, Glaceon, Haxorus, Krookodile, Alakazam, and Empoleon. The Eevee, Abra, and Charmander were migrated from Fire Red to Diamond. Then those three plus Empoleon were migrated to White.
I'd have 50 full restores, send out Gardevoir and double team calm mind up to max, and then blast through Drake and Wallace/Cynthia.
most of the game you don't need anything you randomly pick up in the wild. So by the elite 4 you would have full restores, max revives, max elixir, and rare candiess all stacked up. as a matter of fact, I've never used any of the listed items anywhere but at the elite 4, and on cynthia in White 2.
That's my only issue with Pokemon nowadays.. Way too easy to just breeze through without items! It would be pretty epic if there was a 'New Game Plus' type deal where all the opponents are much higher leveled later in the game.. Or even if in regular play, Gym Leaders Pokemon Leveled up as you did.. So if you were around Level 22 for the Third Gym, the Leader would always be 4-5 Levels harder..
With the talk of Pokemon going onto Consoles a few pages ago I have to ask people their thoughts on this..
Does anyone think the first 'Main Story' Pokemon game on Consoles will include every Generation? (Start at Pallet Town and then play through each Game with the same person.) Fans have been crying out for this on DS for years, but there just isn't enough space on a cartridge for all 6 Gens, but I'm pretty sure a Disc could handle that no problem. Also, if they did, would you want it to be the regular Top-Down gameplay or would you want it to be in First Person and actually see through the eyes of your Character?
