Gave Pokemon Y a quick playthrough before deleting the save data and wrapping it for my brother’s christmas present. It was pretty decent, though as usual the battle system put me to sleep.
It was kind of refreshing to play through a pokemon game with almost no prior knowledge of… anything. I didn’t know the world, I had no idea what the fuck I was fighting, I was catching pokemon just to find out what type they were, and so on. It’s been a while since i’ve played a Pokemon game in such a disorganized manner, but at the same time it was nice to discover things.
Old habits die hard of course, and so I ended up with a gyarados along with a venusaur. Maybe I should just play Pokemon ORAS instead.
