Replaying old games

#1rfom123Posted 9/10/2013 4:15:46 AM
So, i've decided to replay some of the other generations of pokemon before X and Y come out.

I started playing Pokemon Platinum and it's been good to go back to Sinnoh. However, on this playthrough, i have already caught 2 shiny pokemon within the first 7 hours of playing, surely this can't be normal? I have only ever caught 1 shiny pokemon before this and that was in Soul Silver but catching 2 in the same game only a few hours apart is insane.

Are any of you guys replaying old gens?

i replayed Diamond until i beat the E4, and i'm thinking of replaying HG, but i don't know what to do: if replay it as i always play (training the pokemon i like and catching everything i find) or try for the first time one of those Nuzlocke challenges...

Had a massive gen 3 and 4 revival starting 2 months ago. Even bought new games (XD, LG, and Colo) that I've never played. Now I'm building a team for the frontier in emerald and for platinum. It's been keeping me busy until X/Y come out, and even after that most likely, cause you know...haxx frontier.

Btw Emerald cloning glitch is the greatest thing to ever happen to Pokemon.

I'm doing a nuzlocke challenge on Platinum at the moment. Also, catching all of the pokemon on B2 !

I like doing Monotype challenges on older games(Gen2 or 3, for the challenge with limited movesets) for replays. For normal replays, I never catch more than what I want on my team. Nuzlockes can be fun I guess, but my luck always got me a crit before even catching a second pokemon in Diamond, so I never do those.

As for what I do now, I'm trying to create a living dex on W2 after having completed the national pokedex.

Finished replaying all the games again this year about 2 weeks ago. Was only planning on playing one game a month, but ended up going through one after another about halfway through the series.

Now I'm just 100%ing other games while waiting for X and Y.

Yep.

It's part of a ridiculously convoluted plan for me to get as many pokemon as I can into as many games as I can including B2, before X/Y. (Including all of the starters and Legendaries.)

Trading between Emerald and Fire red can be a Pain though, same for the Wandering Legendaries.

I do have Pokemon Box and the Gamecube games though, so things are slightly easier.

After replaying Emerald, I'm probably going to replay Colosseum.
