In pokemon Soulsilver, I still haven't beaten the E4, though I haven't had much chance to play. My team was all levels 40-43 once I reached Lance, and I was one-hit-ko'ed every single turn, so I'm gonna go grind levels until everyone is at least 47-ish.
If I remember to wear the pokewalker, I would accumulate over 12k steps every day. My walking pokemon is usually a Caterpie called Kitty, or a Magnemite called Jonhy-05.
Because of my deafness/Hard of hearing, no matter how loud the TV is turned, I still can't hear certain tones, and thus would need the Captions on.
CAPTIONS SUCK ASS.
He left! Out the back door, hurry!
