Is it better to level up all of my Pokemon at the same time, or can I get away with uber leveling one, and then playing catch-up?

I'd try to keep all your Pokemons in the same general level. That way they're still useful if you have to switch to them (for example - if you fight something your favorite Pokemon can't deal much damage to), or if you want to switch out your current main due to facing something that'll seriously put the hurt on (its weakness).

At the start you're ok with only keeping 3-4 levelled.  It takes a bit before you encounter some of the other useful types.  I remember wanting a psychic type and it took a while before I found Bronzong to fill that slot.

I like to stick with more or less the same team through the whole game, but I know some people fairly regularly swap in new pokemon they come across, since the wild ones are typically around the right level.

I also kept an evolved Bidoof through the whole game to carry my bags, err, my HMs.  He can learn almost all of them, so it's easy to turn him into a swiss army knife.

I would also recommend you find a Starly to have in your team.  I made the mistake of leaving him out of my team, and I was really hurting for a good flying type in the end-game.

I was going to use my exp share as well, but I wasn't sure if pokemon holding the exp share also get EVs from the battle. Or do they just get the xp?

Both the fighting pokemon and the EXP Share pokemon will gain full EVs.

I can get you a Palkia from the GTS.  It'll likely be Japanese with a Japanese name, but other than that it'll work just fine.
Just to warn you, you'll also only have one chance to capture the three legendary psychic guys that live in the lakes.
I decide to replay the game, but I'm going to play Pokemon Diamond first and transfer some of my better pokemon from the Pearl then later replay Pokemon Pearl. Also ordered Pokemon Fire Red, Leaf Green and Emerald. Couldn't find Ruby or Sapphire anywhere so I guess I'm not going to be able to complete the collection of the Pokemon games of GBA and DS era.
You played through Pearl, now you're going to play through Diamond, then Pearl again, then 3 GBA games?  And I thought I was crazy for planning to play just Leaf Green and Emerald after Pearl!

If you change your mind, it's really no bother getting you a Palkia from the GTS.  I was able to get myself a Dialga without much fuss.  You're so close to the finish and there's a lot of fun to be had after you beat the Elite Four.  I do a daily round of checking the GTS, the Lotto, the Swarm-of-the-day, and the Mansion offering, plus I'm still working through the huge island in the northeast that opens up.

And don't sweat not having Ruby & Sapphire.  From the exclusives list I count a grand total of two pokemon that can't be found in Emerald: Zangoose and Lunatone.  If you really wanted to be complete, I don't think it would be that hard to find someone online to trade for those two.

The ability to trade online is such a huge addition to the game.  You don't have to complete your collection in a vacuum anymore!

What loss?  You're thinking short term, the PS3 is long term!

Quote
"We didn't get into PS3 for the first six months of 2007 - we're into this for the next 10 years and beyond," said Sony President Jack Tretton.  "A million units one way or another at this point isn't going to worry us."

Analyst Billy Pidgeon backs up Sony's claim, saying: "The PS3 is ahead of the market, while the Xbox 360 and the Wii were designed for immediate market impact, I believe sales of Sonyt's next-gen console will ramp up in 2008."

See?  All is well!

Future Hiro's original future:
No "Save the Cheerleader" visit
Peter does not meet Clair
Sylar kills Clair and gains regen
Hiro stabs Sylar, Sylar regens
Someone (likely Sylar) explodes

Future Hiro's new future when he returns
Just came back from giving "Save the Cheerleader" speech
Peter meets Clair and saves her, Peter gets regen
Sylar does not kill Clair
<not clear what happened to the stabbing>
Peter explodes, everyone thinks it's Sylar


That help at all?

The game does a good job of gradually introducing you to the game mechanics, so for the most part you can just jump right in.  Just make sure to set up a diverse range of types in your team, print out a type matchup chart until you get the hang of it, and feel free to ask any questions!

I'm still chipping away at the end game trying to fill my collection, so if there's any pokemon you hear about that you want in your team, feel free to ask and I'll check if I can breed you one.
9575  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: HEROES - 5/14/07 on: May 15, 2007, 02:35:50 AM
Well, in the future from the "Five Years Gone" episode, Sylar does not explode.  Peter does, but everyone thinks it was Sylar. 

In the current timeline, it could still go either way.

Sylar does think he himself will blow up, so to answer your question:  Sylar is new to this power, maybe he doesn't think that he could get hurt in the explosion.  He can make little controlled radioactivity bursts in his hands without his skin melting off, so maybe he is indeed immune.  Even Ted, who had the powers for a lot longer than Sylar, didn't know what would happen if he blew up.  Earlier Ted said something like, "I don't know what would happen if I was shot, do you?"

Actually, now that I think about it, in the "Five Years Gone" timeline, Peter never went to save Clare, so he didn't have her regeneration.  Since we know for sure that he was the one to blow in that timeline, I guess that means that the exploder is safe.

As unlikely as it is, I really hope they come out of nowhere and announce a new franchise.  I think they've still got some innovation left in them (the Emperor hasn't driven it from you fully!) and the amount of crazed anticipation, speculation, and buzz it would create on the internet would be fun to watch.

Car damage is only for looks in the demo.  In the full game it does indeed affect performance (if you want it to), and if you look at the last page of the telemetry info you can see how detailed the damage tracking is.

Also England and Japan is convenient. The [ru] it is with the shank, you did not know either with sound."

As far as games that won't get an English translation, the Jump! Superstars game and it's sequel are pretty popular imports.  I've heard you need at least some basic Japanese reading skills to really enjoy them, though.

So hey, how many on each side can you have in an online match? It read like it was a 1-on-1 matchup which, honestly, rather sucks for Pokemon. Much better to have 3-vs-3 (like in Colisseum) or more, since that opens up more room for strategy rather than luck.

I haven't done an online battle yet, but I'm almost certain you can have up to 6 on a team, and you can have them scaled to level 50 or level 100.

I think Battle Revolution on the Wii might limit you to 3 on 3, but I can't remember what I read for sure.

I think these are the pending requests:

Starshifter - Turtle named GAMERA
Magik - Houndour, possibly some of the old starters?
Farscry - Charmander


Starshifter, with GAMERA added to your team, I think you just might have to get a Dustox for yourself named MOTHRA

For some reason Wii Sports is included with the system everywhere but Japan.
Other than Baseball, perhaps the other sports aren't as popular in Japan?
Tennis is huge in Japan, I believe golf is pretty popular as well, and I do remember seeing some bowling alleys when I was there.  No idea about boxing.

I think it more has to do with Nintendo knowing they'd have an easier time gaining acceptance for the Wii in Japan compared to the rest of the world.  As a tech demo and through word-of-mouth, I think Wii Sports was pretty crucial to system's success here.

Besides, the 4/30-5/06 week lists the LTD sales as 1.4million Wii Sports and 2.2million Wii systems.  Two out of three ain't too shabby.
