    I swear, is it just me or, every single time you try to deny someone swapping numbers in the game, they make you feel really bad, and they go emo and shit.

    I mean, am I the only one who notices this? I have every character possible on my damn number list so far because of that. Damn, they made me feel bad. [​IMG]

    One cpu said his kids don't even swap numbers with him, while another said he'd go become secluded in the mountains.

    If you swap you get extra battles (meaning more money) and sometimes free items, so I always swap when possible.

    But yeah, NPCs can pull heartstrings.

    LOL... I wish I'd said no a couple times to see those kind of reactions. So far I've registered everyone that's asked... though I have to admit most of their calls consist of nothing more than irritating drivel.

    I've only had one person give me something after swapping numbers, I usually gust mash the button and skim what people say.
    Really... I don't care about how awesome your Rattata is, my lvl 6 HM only Sandshrew can still beat it blindfolded while my lvl 30+ team laughs at it.

    lol, my thoughts exactly.
    They could have at least toned back how aften they spam call me about Rattata or something.
    So far I've gotten about 85 bajillion calls about Rattata/Gouldeen/What have you, 2 calls about "I found an item I want you to have!", and 1 call for a rematch.
    That's not including mom calling to say pick up the crap she got me from the store and the Daycare man saying my Pokemon can't stop making babies, but at least those aren't useless calls.

    Personally, I'd balance it like this, only one flavor call an hour at most, item/rematch/story calls can be any time. Every 5 mins or so is just way too much.

    what I DON'T like about this game is that you can't Axe their number.... I honestly don't think I want Joeys number!

    well wait, whats cool about this game is that it acts more like a real phone- you don't HAVE to asnwer it- just go somewhere else on the menu and it'll stop ringing.

    I think the phone feature is interesting- it was in Emerald too. remember when this was put in; GS, RBY never had it. we live in an age of phones now.

    I always feel bad about making the NPCs feel bad so I always say yes to them.

    I think most of the calls are hilarious.

    I just wish I could respond in the game to them and get a appropriate response to that.

    Ah well.

    Since the trainer you use "can't talk"... it might be a little hard [​IMG]

    I actually prefer games where the protagonist doesn't talk; I add my own responses in the dialogue in my head. It adds to the immersiveness of the game, in my opinion; makes it slightly more personal in a sense.

    Then again, I'm effin' batshit doing stuff like that. xD
