I got to the 5th badge (8 hours in) and just don't think I can play it anymore.

I was using:
Makuhita
Kirlia
Marshtomp
Sableye
Aron
HM slave

I just couldn't get over being bored. The Pokemon were good but the move sets early on are just so weak and make the battles take forever. I used to think this was one of the best, too. I also never realized how bare the Hoenn dex was. Not a lot of amazing choices for certain types like electric and fighting.

Anybody else have a hard time going back?

After the fast battles and Exp gain from Gen V, and Audino farming, going back is tough.

While you're at it, evolve your Kirlia too. Why stop there? Your Makuhita would love the sudden weight gain as a Hariyama.


To answer your question, nope.

Dump the HM Slave except when you need it. Replace it With someone else, Preferably A Dragon type, like Salamance... Though I doubt you can get one yet....

I did an Emerald Nuzlocke and caught an Aron and a Ralts.

They didn't make it.

Oh God the Tentacool. That's something I was able to overlook back in the day but now I get so freaking annoyed at the encounters every 2 seconds

You know Repels have existed for over 15 years. You should look into them.

Ugh yeah. but at $300 a pop for the cheapest one I don't wanna buy 20 while traveling between towns. Also money is better spent on EV vitamins or expensive TMs
