Just jumping on that I think the mood cheevos are great; achievements should partially be to show off interesting things, and seeing all of the mood animations is really neat.

The Jigglypuff achievement isnt for falling asleep to a wild Jigglypuff, but the one with its trainer in one of the Pokmon Centers - I think Pewter or Cerulean!

Tips on Pikachu's Mood: For Bad Mood, have Pikachu as the only Pokemon in the party, lose a battle, then talk to Pikachu immediately after blackout. For Good Mood, win a battle with Pikachu, then talk to it afterwards.

For Normal Mood, just talk to Pikachu if you haven't done any of the above. Or if you have, walk around a little bit, then talk to it.
