Holy crap, this is a timesink. 8 and a half hours in and I only have one badge. Got a Braixen, Vivillon, Skiddo and Espurr and also collecting for the Pokedex.

There's a huge gap between the first and second gym. I kind of like it since it changes the pacing. I hope it scales the levels later on then.

I have a question

I just got done with the castle where you get the Poke-flute. How far am I from the next gym, roughly?

5th gen's EXP system was already annoying easy enough, damn this one. I'm thinking about turning it off.

#104 Posted by Big_Pecks (5193 posts) -

Definitely turn the Exp. Share off. It makes it way too easy.

This is what the Three Legendaries are based off http://www.viking-mythology.com/yggdrasil.html

I think there is a hidden legendary in the game, same aspect as Mew, Celebi, Jiranchi, Shaymin, and Meloletta. Supposely its a Squirrel Legendary! We may have to wait later

@Big_Pecks: Wait so is it only a time sink for you b/c you turned off the exp share?

#107 Edited by NaveedLife (17172 posts) -

Is the exp sharing that bad? kinda disappointing. i have not played much yet.

Essentially it mitigates the tired design of swapping Pokemon in and out just to give them a bit of experience. The result is less grinding.

Is it bad? Hell no, about time they made this part better!

Agreed, training pokemon is so much better now. They should've just made the pokemon higher leveled a little quicker.

Took me a couple hours, but about half of that was catching pokemon. I'm also taking my time so it could take you half an hour or so.

Ah man my pokemon are so overleveled it's ridiculous.

My party right now is Blastoise level 38, Talonflame level 38, Chesnaught level 38, and Pyroar level 38. I'm in the third gym and their pokemon are like 10 levels below me. My Pyroar just learned flamethrower and now it one hit KOs everything.

#114 Posted by metroidfood (11173 posts) -

Chespin/Charmander on Y version for me. I'm really happy with Flabebe's evolution. Now trying to level up Spritzee to see what it evolves into, then might take a stab at Swirlix.

Though I'm disappointed that

Mismagius wasn't retyped Ghost/Fairy

#118 Edited by Blabadon (25195 posts) -

That moment when 3/4 of your party evolves at once due to the EXP share

And holy moly, I just searched up the Pokemon from this gen. Collectively, this may be my favorite generation yet. They look awesome.

Jesus this game looks beautiful. Mad props, Game Freak.

For the first time ever I gave my pokemon nicknames. Also I just found the pokemon day care center!

The three I use now are,

Frogadier (Water Fetus) 25

Floette (Behold Dandy) 20

Charmeleon (Blastoise) 22

The stuff in parenthesis are what I nicknamed them.

A Charmeleon named Blastoise? Oh man that is sweet and is going to confuse people :D

So I just did a wonder trade since it popped up on the touch screen. Sent over a Mawile. Got a gulpin named fat fuc.

Wonder Trades are awesome, as long as you don't put your best Pokemon up for offer.

Yeah I bet every now and then you'll get someone who's sending really good pokemon like Kyogre and shit just for fun.

Also this game seems insanely easy. Like half the trainers I fight my pokemon are 5-10 levels over them. I've been fighting and capturing a lot of wild pokemon (have two boxes already) but still, it seems like they should've taken the new xp share into consideration more.

Well I've been doing a few wonder trades sending off spare Froakie and Charmanders that I have stored. I bet I made at least some of them happy. That said, I only got Weedles and Fletchlings back.

It would be awesome if there was a tier system with wonder trades, like rarity based or similar.

I don't get it.... I never played Etrian Odyssey. But still, the Norse Myth of Yggdrasil does say that there is a squirrel that is a messanger between the Stag, Snake, and Eagle in which Xerneas, Yveltal, and Zygarde represent. All I'm saying is that there could be another legendary that is Mew tier but won't be revealed until later

How can you have your Pokemon if you don't beat your Xenoblade!?

There's no doubt in my mind that there's a 3rd Legendary in the game since every Pokemon game before it has had at least 1 more Legendary than the other 2. What would make it somewhat of a game changer would be that there is no 3rd Legendary.

So far this game hasn't been following some of the rules Previous games have introduced, so It wouldn't surprise me if there wasn't a 3rd Legendary. Then again it also wouldn't surprise me if there was.

Also the joke was that the Yggdrasil Tree is a Series Staple of the Entire Etrian Odyssey games, so to hear that Pokemon X & Y are inspired by it made me chuckle.

I turned off Shift to make it a little more challenging

I also cannot decide what to use for my sixth Pokemon. I'm probably gonna dump Gogoat for that badass tree because one Grass type is sucky enough.

#141 Posted by cain006 (8625 posts) -

I got an Axew from a wonder trade. Gave it lucky egg. Pretty sure it's getting more xp than the pokemon actually battling.

I beat all of the fourth gym leaders pokemon in one hit, my Pyroar was 8 levels higher than his strongest pokemon.

And man there's a lot of dragon pokemon early in the game. I've gotten a Trapinch, Gible, Axew, and Bagon so far.

Eh, the early areas aren't all that great for training IMO. The areas after the 4th gym seem a little more optimal for that, unless you're doing something terribly specific.

Not sure how I feel on the game just handing out things to you without much effort... I did like having to think and search for stuff in previous entries..
