When you get this game, or a new pokemon game in general...

Do you tend to stay away from boards and the Internet initially and just discover everything yourself? Or do you immediately get online and follow a guide or read about everything you can? I tend to stay away from everything for a while, usually until I beat the Elite 4

I dont read a guide, but I do look for all the new features online so that I can anticipate them, like the shiny charm I finnally got after the melottoa event.

Well usually it comes out in Japanese first so I know most of it by the time it comes out internationally. So I think this time I'll discover more for myself.

Stay away. I have a lot of bad luck when it comes to spoilers.

I like to skim through the list of new Pokemon and see what all to look for, and maybe read about some of the new features, but I don't do too much in-depth research.

I look at the Pokedex, since I like to plan out my team in advance.

Otherwise though, I don't really use guides or watch playthroughs.
#8Gray_AreasPosted 4/19/2013 8:34:46 AM
I'll scan through a list of the new Pokemon so that I will have a general idea of what I want for team members, but I avoid spoilers about the story, gyms, and locations.

I don't check the internet until I beat the game.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

for Pokemon, i will look up every Pokemon there is to know about them and then look where you can obtain them. why? because it would very depressing to go through the game without knowing much and you will be spoiled to a Pokemon you might like just to find out that its post game that you can obtain it or version exclusives.
