    I fall under this category, but I stopped at 3 badges. Platinum Sudoku and Picross DS require much less time invested - easier to pick up and play.

    I am at the 5th badge and I still love it. I stopped early in the GBA version, though. I guess this one is better or maybe the pause between games was long enough this time or something.

    OrR and Shelleeson, have you tried Picross?
    Same with most of the posters, it did contribute to my neglecting the Pokemon game. [​IMG]

    What's this with people suddenly loving Picross?! Not my type of game. I'm still traumatized from my Palm era. Too many bloody puzzlers! [​IMG]

    75h and still not beaten the top four? how did you manage THAT? o.O
    i beat the game after 30h... okay, havent caught 137 pkmn like you did, i think it was about 50 only, but that was enough. Right after the top four, my sinnoh pokedex was full (seen only) and i received the national one.
    I guess the most motivation of playing these games after beating the top four is of course the many legendary pokemon, hidden extras, bonus stuff... and of course the wifi mode, esp. the battle tower! Grr one day im gonna beat 7 of these goddamn human-but-controlled-by-cpu trainers...
    Building a team is fun [​IMG] at least if you dont cheat. I'll never use pokesav except for getting the things you cant normally get without nintendo activation & for restoring my save file once it gets corrupted, which happened sometimes already.
    So all in all, like the three pkmn generations before, i definitely love this one and im not gonna stop soon... you guys definitely need to get more into this one [​IMG] and to everyone thats saying that pokemon is simple, check out bulbapedia (a great pkmn wiki) -> game mechanics. Its crazy, how each of the 493 monsters got whole different stats, weaknesses, strengths, tm's that can be learned, types....... and to make up your "own" perfect team with which you are able to beat other player's teams (battle tower & wifi!).. thats a damn complex thing and it's fun as hell.

    I use to be a big fan of the original red/blue and a fan of the gold/silver. I tried playing pokemon diamond and I was so bored within 10-20 minutes of the game. The battle system just seems too limited to me now.

    I suppose that's why. It's boring cos to be honest, I don't think much has changed since pokemon red/blue

    yeah, the battle system sucks (IMO)
    main problem is that i never bought into the whole "gotta catch 'em all" thing.

    I've got better things to do than run around in tall grass for 70 hours, looking for 150 critters. poke' it up your arse, nintendo
