When you beat the Elite Four and their Champion, you are entered into their Hall of Fame. Literally meaning you beat the game and reaching their credits and the game is over and saved.

But, how many times since you purchased the game have you been entering in the hall of fame is my question?



I entered it as of now 218 times.

With my original pokemon team who first entered now gone and forgotten. I think I used
Empoleon;395;
Roserade ;407;
Luxray ;405;
Rapidash ;078;
Staraptor ;398;
Alakazam ;065;

Good Team, huh! :)

COME POST YOUR NUMBER OF TIMES AND YOUR FIRST HALL OF FAMERS

I've gone in the hall of fame 142 times. The vast majority of it was for leveling up EV-trained pokes for competitive play.

(s.i.e)
11th November 2008, 6:43 PM
102 times that's my count, last time was on april 21 2008 to train my nidoking to lv100,
i often used the E4 + champion to ev train poke's for both myself and other people on this site

it hands over a nice amount of cash too while being busy with it, it's a win win sitution.

11th November 2008, 6:46 PM
i think only 12 or so because i usually just use them to train and i havent trained a lot of pokemon

-$Ci(-P-)$-
11th November 2008, 7:19 PM

Mew Supporter!
11th November 2008, 11:28 PM
Your rivals team becomes ten levels higher after you beat the Elite 4 20 times.

I've beaten them only 12 times, though...

BadIntent
11th November 2008, 11:45 PM
I think around 200 or so. I used to train up to level 100 that way. Now I only go there to get money for vitamins. But it takes sooo long to get through the dialogue.

"Congratulations you're the champ!"

"I know, you told me this before."

"I have? Well in case you forgot, this is where we honor trainers who have overcome all challenges"

"I know."

"Remember your pokemon have endured hardships and this machine will savor their achievements for all posterity"

"I KNOW!"

about 25 times, but I still have about 15 lv.100's

WynautQueen
12th November 2008, 6:21 PM
Eh... only a few times. I haven't bothered very much simply because I haven't put a conscious effort toward raising Pokemon to lvl. 100.

Random Chaos

I don't battle the E4 very often. But i really like the credits music.

TR_Jessie
13th November 2008, 12:39 AM
Mayber 13 or more. I really don't like the E4. I find the trainers very, very boring, and I hate how their pokemon don't level up to 100 or something.

GarchompHata
13th November 2008, 2:33 AM
126. Mostly for level-ups after I cant transfer any more candies.

Right now I've entered the Hall of Fame 106 times. Good for money and EXP.

Pkmn Breeder Jack
13th November 2008, 2:05 PM
Eh, I'm somewhere around 20. I don't bother with it much, since most my battling takes place over wifi, where the levels can be set at 100. I still try to level them up in my spare time, but I really haven't played in a while.

Jessie&James
13th November 2008, 2:07 PM

Well, I think it´s a good record

I´m not all that addicted on going 6000 times, 9000, 10000000
O_o
What do u do?

Nothing against, but I´d get bored after I went three consecutive times
(even though I´m doing this to train one poké to lv.100 after EVd xD)

19th November 2008, 3:50 AM
I entered 94 times. Its the only place to train so... yeah.

Lord Scalgon
19th November 2008, 4:05 AM
I only entered 13 times. It just gets too repetitive, so I'm better off training elsewhere.

Better yet, I'm just happy with facing the trainer with two Lv. 53 Gyarados.

ooh, 13 is an unlucky number scalgon you better arrange yourself a clover 4 before it happens^^

anyway i still have a count of 102 here, i havn't played much but when i do i can
defeat the entire E-4 plus champion with the use of my dragonite only.

Over 60 times, but now I'm just bored of the E4.

Rad3n
23rd November 2008, 3:44 AM
On older games where the best method of training was the elite four, I had won many hundreds of times. On Pearl, I think I've won about 30. On older games as well, I used to complete the dex with the elite four so that was one factor.

Night Shadow
23rd November 2008, 4:21 AM
Like 6. I think the E$ is a waste of my time

DarkDragon
23rd November 2008, 4:56 AM
I've lost count. I do the E4 for levelling up, not for money in this generation as I did in the 3rd gen games.

Arceus1308

;448; Lucario
;405; Luxray
;483; Dialga
;395; Empoleon
;429; Mismagius
Then an Alakazam whose smiley I couldn't find

How the heck did I do that??? Thats an awful team, how did i even get through bertha??

29th November 2008, 4:42 PM
20. Went grinding there for a while because Rival's Pokémon jump 10 levels after you beat the E4 the twentieth time. Haven't been back since I accomplished this. There are much better places to farm experience/money.

29th November 2008, 5:42 PM
Around 10 times, it's jest so boring I don't want to go there anymore. If they would have upraded them after you defeated them like in FR/LG.. it would be worth experience but now you can better go to Stark Mountain for exp. and battle the gentleman and that ladie just outside the Pokémon Mansion for money.

29th November 2008, 8:19 PM
Im not sure but i know its not alot, i dont try to beat them

pika3
15th December 2008, 11:12 PM
My total is 18 in Diamond(my play time is 336:38....lol).
My origional team was:
Luxray, Skuntank, Lumineon, Honchkrow, Lucario, and Torterra.
My current team is:
Porygon2 lv.67(he is the one that stays in the box when i am training a new pokemon), Lucario lv.67, Honchkrow lv. 68, Cradily lv. 70, Walrein lv. 71, and Arcanine lv.72.

My total in Sapphire is 102(my play time is 627:04......wow I think I played this too much)
I have no idea what my origional team was but I know it had a Ninetails, a Linoone, and a Tropius in it.(if I remember right I think my Ninetails was around lv 60 when I beat the elite4 the first time, she is my baby)
My current team is Linoone lv.87, Salamence lv.90, Tropius lv.100, and Ninetails lv.100. (yeah ik that it is only 4 pokemon but they rock, also I would like to say that I raised them all to those lvs without any hacks)

17th December 2008, 11:25 AM
umm about 4 or 5 times? And that was just to get my Mothim to level 100 -.- I don't really bother much with the E4 since Lucian's Bronzong drives me up the wall and I only see the point to deal with it once c:

In my last game, about 15. That was just to level up using EXPshare.

brandyjay
19th December 2008, 4:15 AM
Hey get this I have had the game for about seven months and haven't done it once. The reason is not that I haven't played it but that I have never seen it through without restarting.

Sir Marly
19th December 2008, 4:18 AM
Once. I've been training and what not.

But if you count my pearl 10 to 15 then.

NatOreN
20th December 2008, 2:24 AM
I'm somewhere around 220, I think. Maybe higher.

My team usually consists of Charizard, Palkia, Salamence, Staraptor, Infernape and one or two random Pokemon in need of experience, depends.

aerisLana

Only 3 or 4, lol, I'm laaazy. I think there are better places to train, like Vs Seeker + Fight Area/Resort Area. Wow, how can some of you have done it over 100 times?!? It takes SO LONG!!!

I have entered the hall of fame about 100 times, now. I only really did it so that my rival would be stronger when i battle him, lol. Good training for pokemon (if you're not EVing them.)

One time. I'll only go again if I want to train my pokes to level 100, which is almost pointless.

I've only done it once.
Sure, it can be great for leveling your EV trained Pokemon to 100, but seriously, doing that every single time? It's exactly like grinding in MMORPGs, and that, my friend, is never fun.
Competitive battling isn't all I play Pokemon for, although I understand it might be for some people. Don't take that as an insult; I'm sure some people out there ought to admit it...
Pokemon is a vast world, and I'd prefer exploring every nook and cranny of it instead of staying in the same old Pokemon League for hours of your play time.
I'd much rather take it slow and have it fun, instead of speeding though it and having no fun at all. That's what games are for!
Yes, I EV train, I battle on Wi-Fi, I play competitively. But I level all my Pokemon in much more than one place, patiently. When I finally get to 100, I feel much more proud and happier about it in the long run. Because I worked hard, and I didn't take the easy way out of things.

Only 21 times, I usually train on route 228.

Imposibibble
16th February 2009, 7:53 AM
Only 3 times. That's because I use less bothersome trainers to train my pokemon. I use the E4 as a "test" for my team of freshly EV-trained pokemon.

29 times. I used to level up lower level Pokémon whilst earning money to buy Vitamins.

A little bit over 20. Just got boring to me. I just use the high level trainers in the Battle Zone and on routes on mainland Sinnoh. Gives me the control of the tempo of the training.
