I'm now 9 hours into SoulSilver after a slight problem in starting a new game after trading over Cyndaquil to angelbless
' HeartGold game (you have to erase the old save first? Who came up with that idea). Somehow, I wound up with a female
Totodile, to the utter amazement of the others (especially my sister as she's been trying to get a female Chikorita ever since the original games). And as if I haven't problems with getting attached to these little bundles of pixels in the first place, the "lead Pokémon follows you" thing is now making it ten times worse.
Btw, what on Earth is with all the female Pokemon? I swear didn't see a male for about two hours today. And is Falkner a Time Lord? Because even with the size difference between outdoor and indoor in these game taken into account, that gym is still bigger on the inside.
I've also managed to get the DSs online using a stupidly long modem cable (and why do we even have
that?), an ethernet cable, my old iMac and some tinkering with a firewall. Obviously, it needs to be turned on before we can get online, and the range can't reach upstairs, but it's working.
Friend code is: Leanne 2622 5015 5349. Will trade for Piplup egg/hatchling.
Now off to train Mareep. Which would be easier if she already had Thundershock.
PS: Also have Professor Layton and Pandora's Box. It's like having the puzzle section of our old Find Out More magazine collection in video-game form.
