I *heart* teh pkmn!!

I have finished both Pokemon Sapphire and Pokemon Colosseum, and now my life is over!!

Except it isn't, because although I've finished the main storyline of Colosseum, there are still the side-areas and the tournament battles to go, and although I've finished the main storyline of Sapphire I still have about another 25 Pokemon to catch before I've Caught 'Em All (TM). And in case this excitement wasn't enough, I am picking random crap pkmn to train up for Contests. Contests are kinda hard to describe: rather than being typical RPG turn-based battles, they do what it says on the tin. You go to a Contest Hall to enter one of your pkmn in a Contest to try to win the title of Toughest, Smartest, Coolest, Cutest or Beautifulest(?) Pokemon. In the first round, NPC audience members vote as to which of 4 pkmn they like the best. Then, in the second round, you and the three NPC trainers compete by getting your contestant pkmn to perform various moves in the correct category. In true Engrish style, the second round is called "Appeals", and the 4 Contest Halls are named Normal, Super, Hyper and Master.

I have been having great fun of the deranged nature by taking the ugliest monsters possible and maxing out their Beauty stats, so they win Beauty Contests and get their pictures painted for the Art Museum. Er... maybe you need to be me to find that amusing.

I need Fire Red & Leaf Green, and they don't make it out here until 30th December. NorAm import is going to have to happen; I am saving my pennies for the first week in September.
