Nope, sorry Game Freak. Time to get an Action Replay.
OMG just self impose a challenge. You would have still murdered Cheren with a fighting type and using counter when he only has physical moves. The only difference is the increase in Pokemon.
If you use a Pokemon that was put there just to make a gym leader easier, you won't have a challenge
I do believe this concept has already been invented in the forms of things like Nuzlocke
Yeah or doing a rotational challenge like I am planning on doing.
I was originally gonna do a 20 rotational challenge, but I condensed it down to 12 after I figured out a way to get challenge mode unlocked early
Yeah but people our age don't really know as many others with Pokemon games. Plus, it costs a lot of money. I can see where he's coming from
Yeah. Great marketing techniques. But that's besides the topic.
Sooo...how about the fact they added a water type gym even though we've had like 5 billion water gyms already and STILL no Dark gym!?
Water is one of the best types, like Dragon. It makes sense to be a late gym, imo.
I dislike the fact they keep adding more and more Water gyms, but I kinda appreciated this last one.
Marlon is an interesting character and his gym is beautiful.
Let's hope they do not put any Water or Electric Gyms in Generation 6.
I've challenged Marlon once so far and lost(I reseted the game though, defiantly going to try and not do that on White 2...). I used Emboar, Golduck, and Heracross(Level 50 for the first two, level 49 for Heracross). I'm not really in the best position in the gym, type wise, as four of my Pokemon are weak to Water type moves. I want to use Golduck to finish Marlon off but it probably wont work out too well, it only has Psychic and Surf for damaging attacks(Plus Disable and Flash).
I can't wait to battle the Gym leaders on Challenge Mode.

Many people have complained about the game being too easy and the Gym Leaders, E4, and Champion's Pokemon roster suck.
We really can't do something about it. So the only solution is to give ourselves a challenge. So many ideas:
- Use only 1 or 2 Pokemon.
- Use a Pokemon that is weak against the opponent.
- Don't use any item (even hold items) throughout the battle.
- Do not heal your Pokemon/party throughout the whole gym, League, etc...
- Battle them with under-leveled Pokemon, let's say 5-20 levels lower than the opponent.
To put it simply: If you find it easy, then make it difficult for yourself.

Too me its very hard to even out the levels when comparing it to the gym leaders levels...and I like catching alot of pokemon at the begining. So i ususally stay under-leveled.
Besides, if you want a challange, do the PWt when you get too it (Or...you know, try nuzlocking xD), it forces alot of those things onto them. I only wish there was a singles 6 on 6...even if it would take forever. I LOVE 6 on 6 fights...lol
its why I'm playing triples despite not really likeing them all that much.
IN anycase. I ADORE the PWT. Its so much fun. <3....
but I can't help but think that all of their lines are totally copy and pasted...well not all of them. but alot seem to be the same thing they said in their games relatively.
Volkner STILL can't enjoy a battle appearantly >_>.. XD
And I've already shown drayden the bright future twice...As Connor in black and white, and Pika in black and white 2 ._...XD

My eyes! (my eyes!) are filled with curiosity! You think! (You think!) that you have power over me! In this life! (This life!) There’s no room for you and me! So turn around and face the day with me!
Such a sexy song. Urgh.
I used the Thundurus I got from the dream radar to take on most of the gyms, it made most of them fairly easy. Except for the Opelucid Gym.
So my Black 2 hasn't arrived yet from goddamn Amazon, despite my pre-ordering it 3 months ago and paying extra for their so-called 'guaranteed' release day delivery. Grr.
Even if it comes now I'm gonna have to work my butt off to get my first gym badge before midnight. Beating the 1st gym on the 1st day of my journey has been a tradition since I first held Red version in my hands. I'm...so unspeakably hacked off at Amazon right now.
So, um, on a cheerier note, I've been hearing from people that the difficulty levels are impressive in this game, even without Challenge Mode on? I hope this is true.
