    Default What Do You Do When the Game is Done?

    So I've defeated the E4 and gotten most of the Dex. I still have a few Looker missions, some Mega Stones to find, and breeding Shinxes. Also, I don't really battle, because I suck. But to break up the monotony of running around with eggs, I've started a new walking tour through Kalos, from the beginning with a couple of starter level Pokemon (a 4IV shinx I bred and my Pokebank Celebi). I've put the rules to myself that I'll only add to my party what i catch along the way (trying to use pokemon I haven't used before) and only advancing from route to route as I the lowest level on my team exceeds the route average. When I make it to the Elite Four again, I'll do some heavy training with my new team in the Battle Chateau and take them on to establish a second team in my Hall of Fame. I could have just picked out ny combination from my PC of high powered Pokemon to make my second run, but this felt more fun and a more organically raised team that I'll be more attached too.

    I'm currently bombing around Route 4 with Abranax (my Shinx), Celebi, Mothra (a Caterpie), Magikarp, and Budew.

    How does everyone else play the game when the options get limited?

    Turn it off and never touch it again. I play the games for the adventure aspects, which is unfortunate because those aspects haven't been fleshed out in a long time.

    If you like spending time in that world doing mundane things, I try to find any overworld items I miss, finish the regional pokedex, then the national, then make a living pokedex, then start breeding for 5IV of anything I want to possibly use on a team and use it.

    I mainly do things like shiny hunting and trying to complete the Pokedex, which I will try eventually. IN X/Y Ive also been collecting all the clothing.

    I usually train some of my Pokemon, go on shiny hunts or raid the GTS for whatever goodies can be found.

    Sometimes I train a new team and challenge the elite four with them, or I try to hatch shinies. In X, I like breeding random Pokemon (that are also sort of uncommon) and putting them on Wonder Trade.

    If I want to restart a game, I move all of my best Pokemon to another game first if possible.

    I battle on Wi-Fi, so I train legions of Pokemon for teams.

    Breeding and training can be fun but it's also really time consuming.

    I usually create more competitive teams, EV train/IV breed them, and then use them in another run-through that I'm starting. Every time I finish the game, I continue that cycle until I decide to stop playing the game altogether for awhile.

    I'm currently going through Pokemon Black. Once I complete the game, I'm going to transfer some of my Unova Pokemon to my Pokemon Y to complete the (Inter)National Pokedex.

    I completed the Pokemon World Tournament in B2. It's too bad there's nothing fun like that in Y.
