Thanks, mate. Fortunately, the language is a non-issue, as I am Japanese - thus just needing to get the Japanese original. (I currently live in Sydney, but I and my family is from Tokyo.) It's not on the 3DS Virtual Console, is it?
Unfortunately, I had the same problem with my Pokémon Black 1 - while the story was the best, the gameplay balance seemed to be the worst; I couldn't enjoy the game as much.
Hey, after I finished Awakening, I'm thinking about trying Geneaology. How difficult is Geneology? Also do you reckon I should play the Akaneia remakes? I haven't played the story that started it all, and I want to, but I also heard that gameplay-wise it's not as good as Magvel/Tellius.
(For reference, I've played Elibe before, and I know that I didn't have much grinding opportunities save the Colloseum.)
yeah, sure – i use a myriad of names on showdown, so if i ever see you on i'll send you a pm!
edit: by the way, flame charge heatran isn't on smogon yet - it's a relatively recent set that was used in a few tournament matches. it'll probably be on in a few weeks' time. it's a really fun set, though, so i'm glad you like it!
