I don't understand why the general assumption about the pokemon games is that it takes soooo much time to get even one pokemon to the point that you can battle with it. I have three boxes of pokemon at level 50, EV trained with decent IVs and all the moves they should have. On average, it takes me less than an hour to fully EV train and level up a pokemon from lvl 5 to 50. If breeding is factored in (as it usually is) it may take an indeterminate amount of time owing to the iffy natures of getting the "big three" in terms of nature, ability, and IVs. The first two are a 50/50 chance, or the second one could be guaranteed. But in any case, it just doesn't take that long to build a team on emerald.

The R/S/E Generation has sped it up so considerably, people have no excuse. With held items like Macho Brace/Lucky Egg/Everstone, abilities like Flame Body/Magma Armor, not to mention all the secret bases. There's really no complaining now.

incidentally, I would add my two recent guides to the memories if I knew how ;-) I usually leave it up to you because I don't want to eff anything up, but I'd be more than happy to do it myself, if you tell me how. ^_^

And if they add some new innovation in D/P (which I see no reason for them not to), it could get even easier.

Thanks, I got them. =D And just so you know how:

1. Click on the red memories heart on the bar above the entry.
2. This will bring you to a page where it's trying to add the memory to your memories. Click the arrow next to your username to bring up a drop-down menu of communities you currently maintain.
3. Select pkmn_game_help and click "switch".
4. Now you simply categorize it based on keywords. If you already know what it is classified as, you can just type it out. There are already several keywords there if you are uncertain. Sometimes there isn't enough space to type all the keywords necessary, so I usually highlight some of the existing ones and type the rest out.

If that makes any sense. And this probably comes off as patronizing, which really wasn't intended.

Ok good, I shall do that now and try not to fuck everything up big-time ;-)
