I was about six or seven, and it was my first actual play through of Gold. I had played through Tin Tower without Repels and took forever to make my way up there. I only had one Pokemon that I used for battling, and it was severely over leveled. I also didn't want to deal with Recover, so I used the Master Ball to make things easier on myself.
