    I'm just glad pokemon elected to confine the random encounters to certain areas anyways, instead of taking 2+ decades to do it, like Dragon Quest...
    Oh yeah... that Whismur cave...

    The encounter rates were raised starting in HG/SS. Which has proven to be extremely annoying, for me.

    Imagine combining R/S's Tentacools every two steps and D/P's surfing speed. That would be hell.
    No sig. Deal with it.

    It's funny but.. I really didn't start actively using repels until Fourth Gen... Mostly HG/SS.

    I usually use Repels when surfing, but when I want to surf a really small distance (so small that it's not worth wasting a Repel), I always seem to run into something every other step.

    I found it annoying at the time, but now I find it nowhere near annoying as in BW, where I seem to find a Pokemon every. freaking. step.

    I think the Zubat/Golbat in caves were a lot worse than the Tentacool in the sea. I found myself exploring a lot more caves than sea routes, though, so that might explain why I dislike them more than I dislike the Tentacool. Repels really did come in handy and I wonder why most people didn't think of using them. They weren't too expensive, so I would stock up on tons of them before I had to head out to sea.

    The first hundred Tentacools were the worst. And the second hundred, they were the worst, too. The third hundred Tentacools I didn't enjoy at all.

    After that, it just went into a bit of a decline.

    I just never used to spend my money on anything other than Full Restores and Poke Balls.

    Same here. Ive only used about 2 or 3 repels in the past 6 months. Only when I find them though.

    I normally get a lot of Tentacool, but I just bring a load of Max Repels and use them.

    The horrors of surfing from mosdeep to the victory road with NO REPELS.
    That is when you know you are really screwed.

    Then you realize there are Zubat's and Golbat's in the cave, then you are even more screwed.

    Forget about it. I usually go from LILYCOVE to EVERGRANDE with no repels, nor stops in land.

    No, I ran into over 9000 tentacools and tentacruels.

    The worst was definitely going to mossdeep and the whole eastern region of Hoenn. Pain in my butt. >->

    Unless you're EVing your Pokemon with much Special Defense, it could be annoying while encountering much Tentacool without Repels and yes, I'd encountered over sixty Tentacools right before landing, which is the most annoying thing in R/S/E.

    Actually, I believe it was about 100.

    In that game they were on par with Zubats/Bidoofs.

    Thank GF for getting rid of all annoying Pokemon in White. Well, maybe except Audino, but they help you gain more experience (some annoying done right!)!
    If you believe in Jesus Christ put this in your profile and don't just ignore this, because in the Bible it says, ‘If you deny me, I will deny you in front of my Father in the gates of Heaven.’

    Thank you, Mew_, for this Broken Signature, and -Sarah, for this userbar.

    They didn't get rid of annoying Pokemon at all, they just replaced them.
