Wow, my respects for taking the time to do it.
Rarronak 31 Mar 2023 18:47
One more for the collection, had to do a second run because I forgot to save and reload at Azalea gym, my team would level up above level cap, when I realized it was too late, that checklist made by @tomojin was really helpfull to keep track with the trainers (just saw it after I finished the first run). Pokemon Silver is the next one.
Mophmeister 7 May 2023 18:25
Thanks for the checklist!!!! Legend
KneeDemon 9 May 2023 18:06
I've only played 2nd Gen once, so that 100% item and trainer thing is gonna take awhile xD
VenHur 19 Jun 2023 22:13
Mastered.
Arvenyte 20 Jun 2023 04:29
Mastered! First game in the series where I don't need to trade or glitch to get a Ghost type early on, so I had quite a bit of fun with my gengar setup. Also helped me set up a team of level 5 Misdreavus to start my Crystal run!
DuckswanTheAlbatross 28 Jun 2023 05:43
I normally steer clear of Pokemon sets because I’ve had some very bad experiences with “get all items/battle all trainers” achievements. But tomojin’s checklist was extremely helpful and made the process much less frustrating. I wish people made checklists like that for every Pokemon game!
adamalons 29 Jun 2023 08:24
Sixth mastered. Man, this was quite a bit more of a drag than Pokemon Red. The main playthrough was pretty great, and catching most Pokemon was fine, but the legendary dogs, and grinding some of the happiness evolutions got tedious. Shout out to the guy who made that awesome google document to track items and battles!
Xelrog 14 Aug 2023 03:29
Shouldn't the gym leader level caps be marked as missable?

Mastery #100! Fun set. Finished at 45h IGT of which a lot of which was with speedup to speed up the grinding and egg hatching. Nothing too complicated about the set, though it helps to keep track of the hidden items (and the other things as well for that matter. While I didn't use it, I would recommend using the spreadsheet linked above. Would've probably saved me having to check the memory for a missing hidden item

Mastered! Was a fun set and I enjoyed the trip down memory lane. Some mild challenges and nothing too major really, the checklist is a tremendous help!

How much work would it be to add other language versions of this game?

Mastered. Thoroughly enjoyed. The legendary dogs were a pain to catch but the cheevos were perfect in my opinion. Thank you

Mastered! Was a pretty chill set. Although collecting every item almost finished me.
