Should I play any of the old games again before X/Y come out?

Nuzlocke challenge perhaps? Maybe a fan-made game?

No, don't. The less you play Pokemon, the more fresh XY will feel when you get them.

I haven't seriously played a Pokemon game in months, so XY are going to feel very new to me. I feel bad for all the people who are burning themselves out by playing through the entire series again.

he said again

i.e. he already has played the old games

@TC: yeah why not. trade some pokemon over that wouldn't be normally found in the game and go crazy.

No he didn ... well s*** ...

I redact my previous statement and go with this instead. I traded over a full team of Pokémon to Ruby the other day, and am playing through it. Had a bit of fun with "Pokémon won't obey" from just before Roxanne to the point where I decided to go up against Brawly at level 12.

I'm now kinda thinking of nuzlocking Leaf Green. I've never beaten a nuzlocke so I think this could be fun.

What do you guys recommend?

I haven't played Pokemon for a couple of months now, so I'm thinking about doing a Platinum Nuzlocke quickly before X/Y just to get myself back into playing.

Bump for opinions. Now I'm thinking of doing this on Soul Silver .___.

I don't see the point of a nuzlocke and I'll never do one myself. I don't think that's a good way to have pokemon fun, personally, but if you're interested? Why not.

A more interesting idea, IMO, would be to breed a box or two worth of pokemon you like, mix up all the eggs, and then play through a game with six eggs picked randomly.
No disobeying problems and you have to work with what you get.

OG Nuzlocke + Set on Leaf Green time baby.

Just beat Brock using Charmander lvl 13 and Mankey lvl 9

I forgot to nickname everything. >_> Think I'll turn on a walk though walls code and walk to lavender.
