Current Team: Orion, lvl 30 Tjalfe, lvl 30 Wynona, lvl 26 Fanny, Evolved! lvl 32 and has finally learned a ground type move: magnetude. Shimrio, Evolved! lvl 30 Cotton, lvl 25. Met today and is going to stay on the team simply because she is shiny! It is so rare I meet one and I'm thrilled I can get to use it throughout the gameplay.
Others Zep, my water type, lvl 30 Xiro, lvl 26 had on team but it was a bit too many train up while traveling, so is boxed for now. Cleaver lvl 30 Moria lvl 31 Haneko lvl 30, has been tricky today, mostly due to bad movepool.
Can't remember much of my bf's team other than his ghost/dragon charmander-thing has been trained to catch up with the others, and that his pokemon are generally doing better due to the higher level they have now he has trained them.
We haven't gotten far since last, since we still needed to go through the town we had reached and spent a lot of time grinding first. We had some troubles with an Ace and a ghost trainer but managed and found another Hidden Grotto, which we still like. Oh and we have gotten some secret bases made, although I have never used those in the original games so I really don't know much about how they work. My safari is rock and his is ghost.
So, like, I have this game? But it seems like every time I get a dozen or so hours into it something else occupies my time and by the time I get back to it I've been derailed so much that I lose the plot and decide to relaunch my playthrough from the beginning.
Which is a shame because I finished Zeta/Omicron and really enjoyed it.
That has so far been my experience xD I wanna keep going but always hit a bit of time where I'm pulled away and then have a hard time getting back to it. Though I've only started over twice so far... One day! I'ma get passed where I was stuck on the latest play. No startin' over this time haha
