    Care to give any sort of reasoning rather than just a pointless rating?

    Their encounter rate seems to be the same as ever, if anything a bit more often than the last gen. Guess that's your opinion but Galvantula. A pokemon game that is easy!? There is not enough sarcasm i can use to rebut that argument/

    Can you elaborate on the last two (Pokemon designs & game being easy)? I'm not saying you're right or wrong, but generally the more details you give the better people will see where you're coming from. If you need a few questions to get started:


    Encounter Rates:
    1. Why do you say they have increased?
    2. How was the Encounter Rate in previous games?
    3. Were there any specific areas you thought there could have been too high of an Encounter Rate?


    Pokemon Designs:
    1. What about the designs of the new Pokemon bothered you?
    2. Out of all the Pokemon which designs did you think were the worst?
    3. Were there any new designs that you liked?
    4. How do you think they could have improved on the designs/refer to a previous Generation's choice of design?


    Game Difficulty:
    1. What about the game was easy?
    2. Were there any points you found especially easy?
    3. Were there any parts of the game you would consider difficult?
    4. Did you think the game needed to be hard or balanced?
    5. How would you improve the difficulty/what Generation did you think had a harder/balanced difficulty?

    I agree with the pokemon looking weird as well as the encounter rate. The levels are higher so don't say its "easy".

    Every time I went into a cave or grass, there was a battle like every 2 steps. It was so freakin' annoying I had to keep packing Repels.

    So it's our first day of winter. So far I've seen everything in Icirrus that changed, the Rocket Grunt finally being accessible in particular. Weird that he's still not speaking fluent English, but ok...

    One interesting thing I've found is that captured Deerling & Sawsbuck don't change form. Surprised this hasn't been mentioned on Serebii or bulbapedia from the Japanese games, but once captured a Deerling (and probably Sawsbuck, but to be fair I've not checked that yet) stays as it is, which explains why that scientist still wants you to show him the rest even after he's caught one. Incidentally, if you show him a different Deerling he'll say "This isn't the Deerling we're looking for", I couldn't help but think of Star Wars.

    Right, April is the first day of Winter : D *grabs DS* ...forgot to turn it off yesterday. Interesting, weather doesn't change automatically, it needs to be turned off and on. ...what the crap?! Autumn? *turns off and on again* internal clock says it's April, what gives? o.o;

    Too bad it doesn't effect the routes East of Opelucid much, or even Opelucid for that matter.... Hoping the seasons get more intense in the next game. Like, that maybe it hails in more places than just the Western routes/cities, more high access areas only accessible in Winter etc.

    On the subject of hail, I don't know what it's like in Japan or America but here in the UK, winter or not, there are very few places where it hails 24/7. Might get a little bit of snow, but not much hail.

    Try walking in and out of a building. I saved my White last night inside a PokeCenter, walked out of it this morning and it changed to Winter.

    Yes they do. They will change form the first time you boot up the game when it is a new season (meaning it won't change from Fall form to Winter form right at midnight, you'll have to save, turn it off, and turn it back on).

    Huh. Fair enough. Well, they maintain their forms if you leave them in the PC. In White I've got an Autumn Form & Winter Form sat right next to each other. So if you want to keep a particular form, just put it in the PC every time you save/turn the game off XD

    Whee, it's snowy! Good thing I caught the Icirrus City Pokemon in the water before it changed. Also got 7th badge and dealt with the Plasma stuff. The Moor of Icirrus is blocked off to me now that the water is ice. *sighs* In Opelucid City preparing for my gym battle.

    You can still get on the moor, you just have to surf on that patch of water near the entrance. A lot of it is hard to access though, I've not been able to get most of the items on Black.

    Beat the Elite Four, Champion, and Cynthia today. Even with Pokemon a couple levels under his, Alder stood no chance.
