Just a reminder that Pokemon Bank's free trial ends after Friday, so if you weren't planning to pay but still want the "event" Celebi, get to it!

Also, if you haven't heard, Nintendo will be shutting down wifi services for the Wii and DS/DSi in May, so if you had any trading planned, you better do it fast. Supposedly this won't affect PokeTransfer (BW to B2W2) and Poke Transporter (gen 5 to gen 6).

As X/Y draw near, I've started thinking about finally fighting Red in SoulSilver. The problem I face is that while I do have a team put together with which to fight him, it's in the low 60s, and his lowest-level Pokémon is level 82. (His highest-level 'mon is [highlight to read: (skip) a Pikachu who is level 88.])

Does anyone have any advice for how to level from the low 60s to the mid 80s? It was bad enough before Gen 5 spoiled me with Audino and Nimbasa Stadium, but the only ways I can think of to level that high in SoulSilver are a) repeatedly re-fight the Elite Four b) repeatedly re-fight the gym leaders in the dojo c) drag a high-level 'mon with Pickup through several hundred battles to get rare candies d) do the Pokéathlon enough to have enough points to buy rare candies. I don't think there's a fifth option I've missed, and none of those sound like all that much fun. (The Pokéathlon in particular makes me think favorably of sticking toothpicks under my fingernails.) Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make the process less ghastly, or commisseration about how ghastly it was for you and I can just suck it up and soldier on, or anything else of note?

Last time I played SoulSilver I used a walkthrough. This time I can't find the one I used, so I decided to just play along.

I get to Mahogany Town. Kick some arse in the gym... then can't leave the town. I back and forth for a while, looking around... and then I realise I've managed to skip two towns/gyms. *facepalm*

Has anyone else managed to do this kind of thing? Now I need to backtrack to Ecruteak and work out what I'm doing from there.

Gamestop Free Exclusive Character Distribution

Hey, just wanted to say that Gamestop is currently having an awesome pokemon release, giving out Suicune, Entei, and Raikou for Pokemon DP or SS/HG. Currently they're giving away Entei until tomorrow (the 23rd) and Suicune will be given away from January 31st to February 8th.

AND if you trade one of them to B/W you can get a the super secret pokemon Zoroark! (who is a wee fox thing that is kinda cute)

ETA: Forgot to mention that the three legendaries are also SHINY POKEMON! And are thus, very shiny! :D

Hi, just wanted to give a heads-up that Nintendo is giving away Mew! That's right, the adorably awesome MEW can be yours if you have Pokemon HeartGold or SoulSilver!

The event lasts until Oct. 30th, all you have to do is connect via Wi-fi and use the mystery gift. That's it! I haven't gotten mine yet due to difficult wi-fi shenanigans, but I'm definitely looking forward to it.

Hey you! You live in the U.S., Western Europe, or Japan?

Got a copy of Heart Gold or Soul Silver?

Then you can compete in the 2010 Pokémon World Championship! Woo!

There's lots of rules, and a list of banned pokémon, but it looks kinda cool.

I'm Canadian, so I miss out, but if any of you guys go, you should post and tell the comm all about it so we can die of jealousy share your adventure :D

Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver are out.

Has anyone got theirs yet? What do you think - is it as good as the original? The new features look nice.

What did you think of the Pokéwalker?

Someone must be excited about the G/S remakes!

So 'fess up. Who's buying one/both? ;)

I plan to buy one depending on the exclusive pokemon and then I'll buy the other a few months down the road.
