Anyone else going for it? I wasn't going to right now, but then I have tomorrow off and am caught up on work, so I really have nothing to do. A perfect time for Pokemon

I was planning on getting it, and then two of my friends asked if I wanted to go to a midnight launch to pick it up. We snagged it at midnight, played until the deep early morning until we all knocked out, and then watched college football and played the game all of Saturday, and then played while watching NFL football today. It's easily the most fun I've had with a Pokemon game since HeartGold. Everything feels fresh in a really good way that I think Black/White was trying to do but didn't quite get there for me.

I picked up X. What about you, Jon?

I got super excited when I met the professor and was able to get a second, classic, starter..

This is also the first game I've chosen the fire starter. I usually go Water, though I did choose Snivy in Black/White.

Since I don't have a 3DS, I'm not getting it for the forseeable future. I picked up White and White II a few weeks ago, and I just got the 6th badge in White.

And Kylo, did you happen to watch the Penn State/Michigan game? Because I was at that, and it was amazing.

Amazing.

AMAZING

I guess I might. I think I do every third or fourth generation, and my last one was Pearl? I'm kind of won over by that spoilered bit.

Willis, it seems like every other time you post, I need to look up a word that's in the OED or Urban Dictionary but not both.

Oh I'd have to buy a 3ds. RIGHT NEVER MIND back to Avernum for me.

Snagged Y. When people asked me why, I said "because I'm a boy" and the whole chromosome thing, but then I also realized that I've almost always picked the version mentioned second in the listing (Blue, Silver, Sapphire, White.) The only time I deviated from that is with Diamond, but I ended up playing through Platinum in that generation instead.

I didn't; I game I primarily was anticipating was UW/Oregon. It was heartbreaking to watch the Huskies lose so badly.

Jace, are you/did you have a problem with being overlevelled in the game? I've been using the Exp Share ever since it was given to me and now, about six badges in, my mons sit comfortably about 15 levels above the wilds I'm encountering and about 8-10 levels above any trainer I run into.

Also for starter, I chose Chespin to complement the event Torchic they're distributing.

Yeah, I didn't think about the Torchic at the time, but since I'm not a big fan of Blaziken it's probably not a big deal.

I am noticing some overleveling, especially when using the EXP Share, yes. It's been slightly mitigated because I routinely change my line-up when I get someone new I like, and I've also turned the share off on occasionally, because I hate being overleveled.

I've hit six badges and I'm about to enter the snow cave to find out what's happening with the Mamoswine.

My mons are pushing 55-60 in level, which is still about 8-12 levels ahead of most trainers and a solid 15 or so ahead of most wilds. I'm surprised at the relative strength of the trainer Pokemon though, because the damage they take when snagged by a super effective attack is still pretty significant.

I'm at the same point, but my Pokemon are only around level 45. This might be because I've swapped in a Carbink and a Heliolisk, but it also makes me think the formula for the EXP Share is broken.

Oh, no doubt that I think it's broken, but I've been pretty thorough in looking for new Pokemon in every area, been using the same ones for nearly the entire game, and have run from very few wild encounters (why bother when I can one- or two-shot nearly everything?)

So yeah, I've nearly thrown challenge out the window at this point, but I'm still really enjoying seeing how the story develops.

Mine is 2466 1465 7457. But I play pretty late at night my time, so I don't know if we'll ever be online simultaneously so I can pass you O-Powers.

Finally beat the Elite Four + Champion. Saw the credits but haven't entered any post-game stuff yet.

I'm working on putting together a team for battling online. Right now I've got Bisharp, Kangaskhan, and Galvantula trained up. I'm working on Trevenant and Togekiss. I want my last slot to go to Gastrodon, but I'd have to get one first.

I don't know if I'll do any battling online (if I do, it'll be via Pokemon Showdown once it gets updated.), but I started on the postgame stuff today. I spoke to Professor Sycamore on the origin of Mega Evolution, encountered a roaming Articuno and also captured Mewtwo after several attempts.
