How long is the story? (Up to Elite 4/Champion)

A coworker of mine told me that the main story of the game would be around 35 hours, which at first, I simply didn't believe, because usually, I average about 20 hours my first runthrough a Pokemon game. But then it took me 9:15 to walk into the third gym, so I'm thinking that 35 hours number might be right..

Keep in mind I'm not rushing, but I'm not taking my sweet time to do things. This is pretty impressive.

Just broke 10 hours, haven't hit 2nd gym yet. I'm stopping to catch every single pokemon that I see and then grinding encounters a bit to make sure I'm not missing rare spawns so it's taking me a bit longer than a 'normal' playthrough.

Honestly. Depends if you start trying to catch all 80 something pokemon available before the 2nd badge.

9.15? Wow, I was at 14 hours when I walked into the 2nd gym. From the 3rd Gym and onwards things start picking up a bit actually, things will start going faster, especially if you keep exp share on.

You people have to be kidding, I had seven badges and was in the town with the eighth badge before hitting 20 hours.

It depends on how you play. Gonna super train all your Pokemon? Gonna make them out in Pokemonamie? Battling friends a lot? Trying to catch all of the Pokemon? Things like this you need to think about.

The game can go from ~20 hours to past 40 depending on what you're doing.
