    I loved the contests!! I loved the idea of using pokemon for other reasons that are NOT battling. However... If only they didn't demand such high quality sheens... XDD

    I never really liked Pokemon contests much. It was a cool concept, but I never really bothered with them.

    I LOVED the R/S/E contests and I enjoyed them very much. DPPt ruined them, imo. :/

    I didn't like them, but I didn't really dislike them, although I hardly ever enter them. There are just better things to do with your time in the games they were in.

    I don't do them much, but it is a nice alternative to battles, so I said yes.

    I did the contests primarily because when I was a little nine-year-old boy, I was pretty curious... I had enjoyed the battling aspect of the games, and, after catching my first twenty or so Feebas (you see, I was so excited after I caught my first one that I decided to catch more and more for the fear of the supply of the virtually useless fish (in their initial form) would eventually deplete), I decided to look up how you evolved them. After conducting very thorough research, I became a master at the art of creating Pokéblocks... actually, I'm lying. But eventually I did evolve one into a Milotic, and I decided to give the contests a shot. And, what would you know, I loved them! I can't say that my feelings stayed the same after DPPt, however; I found those contests a little too silly for my tastes. If there ever are RSE remakes - a possibility which I don't doubt - I really hope that they bring them back in their pre-DPPt incarnation.

    They were better than musicals.

    I only did them on Diamond and Pearl. I liked the idea of them and was happy to do the visual stuff and the battle side of things. But I couldn't stand the dancing one.

    I didn't mind them, but they weren't an important part of the games for me. I generally just played them to get a star on my trainer card, but I found them more interesting than the athletic contests in HG/SS.

    They are a nice change of pace since instead of focusing on using moves for battle purposes, you have to focus on the visual side of it, which at times renders perfectly good battlers useless in contests. I really enjoyed them in Hoenn but Sinnoh sorta messed it up with the dancing portion. I understand adding the dress up portion since it can be kinda interesting to see what you manage to do when forced to panic, but the dancing just seemed...........out there.

    I enjoyed them, more or less. But I only did it to get Ribbons on some of my favorite Pokemon, though.
