    It would definitely get very tedious without repels.

    Unless you had repels, the real question is:

    Who hasn't?

    why? because wingulls and pelippers. they actually give speed EV

    I've played RSE about 5 times, and yes, I actually did the whole water routes area with no repels, because I felt they were a waste of money. The thing that prevented me from going crazy was my patience.

    The only time I used repels is in Plat Victory Road, because that place was BSing me <_<

    Heh, I seen a lot of Tentacools in the waters of Hoenn. So much that I found a shiny one on the route to Mossdeep coming from Lilycove. He was level 23. He is now level 95 (still a tentacool) in the pc of Black, never to be used again.

    Same here. I hate it when stupid tentacool show up on me and forgetting repels.

    The Tentacools sure were annoying... It helps when I have a ton of Max Repels while surfing, but a lot of times I'd run out. :/

    Yes... But luckily I discovered the amazing Repel a long long time later. I only started using Repels a few monthes ago, and I've been playing for years....

    Whoever didn't encounter Tentacool every few seconds in the games (without using Repels) were lucky. For everyone else, the game did it to laugh at your back, pretty much. "Oh, you caught an almighty Legendary, eh? Good for you, here's a legion of Tentacool to keep you busy. Should bring that Rayquaza up a few levels at the least. You cannot escape. Hahahahahaha!"

    I find it funny that whenever I'm surfing for the hell of it I always find thousands of Tentacool, but when I want to EV train in Special Defence they all seem to melt beneath the waves...

    I do find it useful for a bit of EV training on random poke. since it was mostly ingame stuff it really didn't matter who got the spd evs

    i never really encountered that many Tentacool, for me it was mostly Wingull (or Pelipper).

    Like other people have said, yes but they are useful when EV training. (But when you're not, my god...)

    I figured I might as well EV train against the Tentacools. That way I get where I want and train how I want at the same time!

    Ugh, do not remind me. This is the reason i think getting a shiny one won't take as long. *BAM!* encounter. run away as usual, then take a step *BAM!* encounter. you barely have to move the control pad XD

    Not for me. At all. After doing so much surfing before I bet the league on Emerald, after I defeated the league I decided to have a look at my PokéDex. That was when I saw, that I had NEVER seen even a single Tentacool. Not even in the wild. Where Tentacool would be, it was listed as a '?'
    Believe me or not, it's true.

    I think its the case for most of us. I thought repels were useless back then.

    During my first playthroughs, yes.
    Now, I stock up major on Max Repels, as even running into Pokemon in tall grass annoys me. Lol. I have places to be, dam it! >:c

    Man... I remember that always happens to me. I keep running into a lot of them with the occasional Wingull. That's why I keep bringing repels with me everytime I go out at sea.
