One hundred percent agree. I’ll add, though, that some late-game unlocks make them different enough. Doesn’t Jacob get that combat skill (Mutilate, I think it’s called) that all but turns the game into a hack-and-slash?

Great point here. Thanks for adding.

And yes, ugh, the final boss is the WORST. I thiiiink I managed to find a strategy that’s replicable across play styles—one that I, somehow, was able to use to beat it without losing anyone. Might put together a quick post on that, too. Keep your eyes peeled!

Okay, this is awesome.

A word of caution: Yes, there are definitely methods out there for bringing Gen I Pokémon into the 21st century. But I also saw a few social posts claiming that such tricks resulted in corrupted data. And the absolute last thing I’d want to do is say, “Hey, try this out,” only to have you Read more

Hey, thanks for pointing this out, folks. You’re absolutely correct that A) Nintendo’s official stance should’ve been initially included, and B) the matter of whether or not li-ion batteries weaken while docked is indeed contentious, to say the least.

Yes, it’s been debunked...but then the debunking was debunked...and Read more
