Going to re-do the Elite four on white tonight. Hopefully there levels won't have jumped too much, I'm expecting low-mid sixties. If it's much higher than that I won't last the pace. Current team is Excadrill 63. Scrafty 63. Braivary 63. Darmanitan 63. Gyarados 70. Electivire 71. Pretty strong, over-trained the last two a bit, depend on them to get me out of any trouble. Unlike some, I actually quite like the grind pre-Elite Four. I'd actually like a Pokemon game to have a league a bit like the Anime's. Random strong trainers in a tournament style knockout where you only have three pokemon. It's then strategy beyond the 'he's a rock leader, put water type first.' If the game then put their levels at roughly your own, it'd be quite a challenge. Perhaps then you could join the Elite Four or they are a post game challenge, independent of the league, again similar to the anime. I'd also like it if you then had to defend this title after time passes, a new league each 'year' for example. Different trainers, some returning trainers. I know that's ambitious, but Game Freak need to show some serious ambition to kick the series on. Black and White were a good start with a lot of new stuff, hopefully the next installment will throw a lot more stuff in.
