1st topic on this board (I usually like trying to keep far far away from new Pokémon games just until they come out ever since Pocket Monsters GSC... for good reasons... get too excited), but I've been wondering how others go through their games as I know not everyone plays the games the same way as others.

As I have a friend that beaten Black 2 within 1 1/2 days and randomly play it still from time to time while I took about 5 months to finish the story as I was capturing everything I could (from White 2 as well) that I didn't get in Black or got better abilities/natures and add them to my PC box to have one of each Pokémon while doing the story and side games like the movies and musicals and what else.

How do YOU play games and will you play Pokémon X Y Z any differently from the past games?

Also, to those that have been with the game since Pocket Monsters Red and Green on the GB, how different have you played the game from then to now?

I chose option 4 because I am kind of a perfectionist :/ It just feels good to see lots of Pokemon to show off to others in your PC ;)

I'm literally the game, which is why I picked my 2nd to last option (100% the game + option 3 and 4).
I wish I had more room to type for some of the choices.

The results of this poll (albeit still in its infancy) explain why most people seem to beat the game within 30-40 hours, yet I never enter the Hall of Fame until around 120 hours.

I chose the same option as you, TC. And even after all that, I sometimes keep playing until all my Pokémon reach a certain level at least.
#8XazealPosted 6/29/2013 5:54:24 PM
None of those, really. I don't randomly capture Pokemon, and I don't try to capture everything I see - I plan out my team in advance and pretty much only catch the six Pokemon I want on my team, plus legendaries.
#9Ether_SwordPosted 6/29/2013 6:08:54 PM
I'm one of the 3 people who chose the first option. >_> I just like battling and worry about exploring when I have all the HMs.
#10JustinTheJaggedPosted 6/29/2013 6:12:10 PM
Option 3 is probably the most like me. I'm not overly obsessive with getting 100% or completing the pokedex, but I will catch all the ones I come across.
