That's actually great! I'm a big English nerd, so I love giving people reading suggestions :D My teacher introduced me to this guy, an author named Christopher Moore (http://chrismoore.com/); he's absolutely hilarious! So far I've only read Bloodsucking Fiends, You Suck, and Bite Me, but they're some of my favorite books ever . . . Very adult as far as the themes go, but awesome nonetheless! They're about vampires who aren't very good at being undead, and it's very entertaining (though I promise they're better than Twilight if you didn't like that series) :)
EDIT: Your username reminded me of Moore's books because Abby Normal is one of his stories' protagonists . . . She also happens to be my favorite character lol
No, I really agree with you on most of that stuff. Gen II is my favorite gen, the eeveelutions are some of my favorite pokemon (Umbreon is first BTW), And fire is one of my favorite types. You just have good taste (LOL).
LOL, I was just about to friend you. Fire types are nice, they're one of my favorite types (along with dark and steel). The eeveelutions are some of my favorites too. If it weren't for the anime Totodile (he was awesome!), I'd agree with you 100%.
The Itemfinder (or the dowsing, Pbbt) was my favorite app too. That was always the application that I had it set to. And I swear, you and me must have the same pokemon tastes. I disliked most of Gen III's pokemon (they felt similar to what had already been done IMO) too.
After you push the soft reset buttons, the game starts back up at the title screen (with the shadow of your game's legendary). People usually save before a one-time only pokemon (like before choosing a starter) so that they can try and get a shiny pokemon.
E4 = Elite Four. I was asking if you wanted any help in trying to beat them.
Oh, it's good to know you got your answers then. Soft resetting is pressing the L, R, Start, and Select buttons at the same time (it saves time over resetting through other means), and chaining is VERY complicated. It took me a week before I got a shiny through chaining.
