the way I see it, I see the main series Game's Pokemon battles as more of "Endurance contests" in comparison. and I'm fully aware how there's 600+ Pokemon in total, but i would think that perhaps it'd be best if such an idea took steps... sort of slowly developing a means of becoming proficient as it adds each Generation's set of Pokemon.
I know my friends would groan if they caught me ranting about this again. but if the anime can come up with ideas like that, why not have the games take that a notch further... eventually?
oh, right, and am I the only one around here realizing that the biggest Level boosters a substantially levelled up Join Avenue has might turn out to bridge the gap between Grinding at LV 80 or so to LV 100 in a couple days?
