    Dear nintendo: You probably dont like ROMS, but the amount of money ive speant buying about 3 copies of every pokemon game you've ever made should hopefully make up for it.
    If you have a 3DS and X/Y, I'd suggest just carrying that. I never, ever used my Pokewalker (it's in nearly mint condition right next to me) and I've never been hurt or upset by it. The rarest thing you can get from there iirc is a Surfing/Flyign Pikachu which you can't carry up to gen V or VI because you can't transfer HM moves between 4 and 5.

But he encountered a Malamar in a Cherish Ball, so it led me to believe it was the happy hour Inkay that was handed out in Tokyo.



    I think he ended up somewhere around 20-19 or something. Overall not bad. Didn't fight in as many battles as he could have though. Max was 60.

    Overall the team worked well, but unfortunately near the end he ran into three teams abusing Mega Gengar/Arena Trap Dugtrio/Shadow Tag Wobuffet that were trapping him into Perish songs. So they'd perish song, then repeatedly swap the trapper Pokemon so it wouldn't fucking die, but he'd be trapped anyway, and he eventually lost to that one once (but beat the other two.) They also seemed to spam protect all the time. >.<

    His Salamence has Dragon Pulse/Hydro Pump/Roost/Flamethrower, so we were saying that once he was able (the tourney won't let you change your battle box once you lock in) we'd swap Roost with Dragon Tail.

    As far as I'm aware, he had a losing streak of like 6 battles where he just kept running into people who perfectly countered the team or something, but I wasn't present for those so I don't really know the details.

    You put a pokemon in it from the game, and you can play minigames where you go looking for items or other pokemon. The steps you take charge up the "battery" for the minigames, and also will level your pokemon up (I believe 1 step = 1 exp.) Oh, and the more steps you have clocked, the rarer the pokemon and items you will find during the minigames.

    Bulbapedia has a pretty comprehensive guide if you're interested in taking a look.
    Even though you live in the east coast, which state are you in??

    I'm not revealing that. :P

    The tournament he was in was Global, so 99% chance it was a JPN dude who had it. But it actually wasn't region locked so if you happened to be a foreigner in Tokyo at the time, you could have gotten one, as well.

    yeah Ive got it, although I havent touched X and Y since Nov for some weird reason. Do any of you ever just get into that "Im tired of pokemon" moods? Because it seems it took TPP to get me back into the pokemon mood. My guys in Y are still only level 20ish and only have 1 shiny...

    I'll get burned out sometimes, but it's the same as any other RPG/Sim game with endless replayability (in Pokemon's case, it's breeding and battling and replaying a different cartridge for me.) I'll be all into it for a while, and then wander off and go pick up Harvest Moon or whatever again, and then go play Animal Crossing for a few months, then be like "I miss Pokemon!" and come back to it. xD

    Right now I'm very lightly playing Pokemon while catching up on Harvest Moons I haven't played (never played any of the wii ones) and also trying to cap in my MMO.

    I've never liked FPS games, myself. Always been into sims, RPGs, adventures, and puzzle stuff. RTS/TD as well, but those are basically just live time puzzles. ;P

    I use a card booklet and I've never lost anything. Here's one that's similar to what I use if you're interested: Linky link

    I have 2 of those, one for my DS games and one for my 3DS games. Thinking of getting a third for travel, since they've worked nicely for me so far. I also got one of those for my 10 year old cousin who had a problem losing his games because he's a kid, and it seems to have helped him out (right up until he let his dog chew it apart, of course...)

    My thing is I just don't get why a website can dictate what pokemon are in and what ones are out.



    Reminds me of Tourneyfags in SSBM. was hanging out with friends and a guy raged at me because I chose Kirby. beat him once and he refused to play anymore.
    We're all newbs, some are just more newbier than others.
