    Casual players will have trouble with the Battle Tower or the Battle Subway, but both of the Battle Facilities are quite easy to beat with a team consisting of EV trained Pokémon with decent IVs.
    I claimed the fabulous Burgh in the Official Claim-A-Character thread, and I claimed Quiver Dance in the Official Claim-A-Move thread.

    Not really, but I get bored and leave most of the time because I'm too fidgety to bother working through 40-odd battles for a lousy little badge-thingy.

    It's a fair challenge, even for those who IV breed and EV train, but mostly because the AI seems to have an ungodly amount of luck. So, in my opinion, most of the toughness is a bit artificial...but then again, I haven't played either that much, so your mileage may vary.

    It depends on how you play, I guess. If you know how to play more competitively than in-game, and you have a team that's trained for that purpose, then it's not that bad.

    Yes, it is. The opposing trainers always seem to have an insane amount of luck on their side, which result in critical hits or lucky dodge for them. Things like that rarely happen to you, and it's really frustrating to lose when you're on a roll because of a stupid turn of luck. I really hate that place.

    It starts to get tough in the third set. Just before the brain of the tower, they begin to cheat. (at least that's how I see it)

    And the subway doesn't reward nearly enough for the challenge, if that tells you anything.

    Yeah, like I said, I lack in the Pokemon department. I like how it is actually demanding decent pokemon though.

    It's the best enjoyment in the games for me at this point. Though, it has to be mentioned I didn't like how a Cottonee single-handedly trashed all 3 of my pokemon. the others at least were almost serious pokemon. -.- But yeah, that's what's fun in it. Even better if they hax.

    I always give up early unless I have a FEAR Rattata. Then I go and play for fun.

    So... long story short, yep, too difficult.

    Its fairly easy.I get to a streak of 40 matches easily every time in the subway.You need to create a team thoughtfully.Its not just a matter of leveling pokes to level 50 and battling.

    It's not too hard; you just have to know what you're doing. For instance, in Sapphire, I rarely made it past the first few rounds of the Battle Tower, usually having met defeat at the hands of a Milotic. So, what did I do? I eventually wised up and brought a Breloom with me. Not too long afterward, I achieved my first-ever 50-win streak. It probably could have gone on even longer if I bothered to EV train or seek out a proper moveset.

    The BT in Crystal was impossible to complete to me. I can handle them nowadays though.

    I was never able to get the symbols/prints/stars from the Battle Towers, personally - largely because I have little experience outside of battling NPCs and I don't really EV train, not to mention that losing at any point meant that you had to start over at the first trainer. It was a very time-consuming process to get to the point that awarded the trainer star that I sought, not to mention that BP gain is incredibly slow, so there's not much in the way of a consolation prize. In my opinion, B/W did the right thing with adding the Super lines - having a checkpoint of starts to try again from has really helped me and made the whole ordeal much less frustrating.

    I thought it was hard at first. Then I went to the Pokemon Tournament in Reading-then-got-moved-to-London-last-of-Gen-IV-blah-blah-blah. And then... it didn't seem very hard vs. battling a real opponent. This is the reason I'm EV training a Lucario now. Stupid rain dance hax...

    For the most part, no. But I recall a few times at the higher levels in Emerald where the opponents would somehow predict my team and build theirs to counter it, but that is only at the high levels.

    Goblins and Saurus and Cheetaurs, oh my!
