The fastest Pokemon trainer alive!

I do everything I can.

I start at one end and I don't move forward until I have battled every trainer, gotten every poke I think I can find (I try to not use any guides about poke locations until after I have finished the E4), battled every trainer, picked up all visible items, and clicked all over the possible places for hidden items.

I also explore any rest areas and talk to all NPCs that might be there.

One of my fitness goals is to be able to lift an adult female, approximately the size of my wife, into the trunk of my car without any help.

Usually catch as many new pokes as I can. Then proceed to battle/talk to everyone.

I'd put a quip here, but I'm not hilarious enough.
#5WiiareVenomPosted 5/9/2013 11:54:00 AM
I'd like to say go and look for new Pokemon, but most of the games don't give you the option to catch them yet. I really wish this one just gives you your Pokedex and pokeballs when you get your starter<.<

Put the lid down and drink some water
Make my way to the area after the route if it's a town, otherwise go straight to the next step
Catch each and every pokemon possible, unless it's a shaking grass/water hole pokemon/~1% appearance chance
All the while fight all the trainers possible
And loot stuff ofc

I keep on walking in the direction of the next gym.

I walk through grass wherever possible though, and look around for other trainers. I also check out every NPC and building .
#91ultimaPosted 5/9/2013 12:32:05 PM
I catch all the new Pokemon to see which ones I want to use in my team and which ones are HM slaves/ccollection fodder.
Then I use the new Pokemon if I choose one to beat all the trainers on that route, looking for items along the way.

Collect all items, talk to all NPCs, beat all trainers, catch all Pokémon. In that order.
