    Don't question, Pokemon does weird things.

    After playing Emerald some more, Surfing isnt that bad. Sure, surfing to pacifigilog (Or that log town) is long. But after you visit the places, just fly there. Also sky pillar is easier than I remembered.

    surfing to get the regi's is a giant pain in the a$$ tho..... you literally NEED a guide if you don't want to spend hours in all dat salt

    And then you need to know the sekrit codes to open the doors.

    Just part of Pokemon's plan to make you spend more money on things. Buying a Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald guide at GameStop... (for those who didn't understand the Internet well enough as kids).

    Yay! Guides!

    ...

    Good strategy guides were awesome. Its almost a lost art nowadays. >.> From the Mid-80's to about the early 00's, Strategy guides were this wonderful thing, at least if they were properly made. Not everyone had unlimited video game time or (in all honesty) the skill/talent to get though some challenges on their own (at least before the game stopped being "fun"). Granted, I was just impatient. ;)

    Since this post is already a bit... strange, I'll still take this moment for advocating fusing earlier regions together. I mean, much like Eeveelutions, it feels like its taking too long with the remakes. I probably should be grateful that every generation Pokémon doesn't milk the franchise with an update for all but the most recent two generations but it really hit me with this set of remakes how long its been: this year marks the 10 year anniversary for the Fire Red and Leaf Green! @_@

    Granted I am odd; my biggest gripe with the video games has been how, in my opinion, they skimp on what seems like almost simple "improvements" to game play. Instead of prettier graphics and even some of the new mechanics that I do enjoy, I'd have just loved to see expanded regions including how Gold/Silver/Crystal made sure to include the Kanto region from the original Red/Blue/Green/Yellow games, even in some areas weren't accessible or fleshed out (and in some cases that made sense since it was supposed to take place after the original Gen I games).

    Maybe in another five years or so when the Gen IV remakes are out, they'll finally unify Japan and actually have the games show us what is happening to Kanto, Johto, and Hoenn. I know the games claimed they were "far away", but I am not saying I want to go all Wind Waker and have to Surf to them; taking a ship or plane in game and treating them as different "regions" is just fine.

    I'm just hoping they make the legendary exs in upcoming or/as sets good, maybe with the regis reprint regices regimove or something

    So assuming the R/S "remakes" come out at the end of this year, when do they get their card sets? It's still so early in XY, but I can't imagine them just skipping R/S. Then there is the possibility of Pokemon Z.

    I'm just hoping they kill EXs altogether.


    OR/AS sets ought to be February, if we get them.

    Japan-
    June: XY3
    September: XY4
    December: ORAS1

    International:
    August: XY3
    November: XY4
    February: ORAS1

    Is how it should work.

    They're coming out in November. I think OR/AS should have exs, not EXs...

    Nope, I like the old ex Pokemon. Seeing as they were in the old R/S sets, I see no reason why they shouldn't be in the OR/AS sets

    I think we would be perfectly fine without EX's.

    The difference is exe weren't Basic, they were whatever stage their normal form was. For example, Flareon ex was a Stage 1, but Flareon EX would be a Basic[DOUBLEPOST=1401122287][/DOUBLEPOST]
    Meh, we all have our opinions…
