Pokemon Champion!

046. Complete 20 video games (2/20) [more info]

Woohoo, I finished the main quest in Pokemon HeartGold!

But yes, it took me 64 hours to do so.

Hubby laugh and tells me it’s because I stuff around and backtrack too much when I’m gaming… it’s true, I like a side quest (or ten!)

However, through the frustration (and yes, there was much!) I’m finally done with Johto and slowly working my way through Kanto (the second region). Whether I finish that part or not I don’t know, but in the scheme of things it doesn’t matter all that much. What will I move onto next? Probably a point-and-click adventure game on the PC. 🙂

P.S. – For anyone out there who’s interested, my Pokemon lineup from L-R are: Togetic, Meganium (starter Pokemon), Ho-Oh, Jinx, Gyarados and Umbreon.

I started playing Pokemon HeartGold back in March, and have been slowly plodding through it (my husband’s playing SoulSilver, and we’re quite competitive at the moment!). Only one gym leader and Victory Road to go and the main quest will be officially complete. 😀

(There’s many, many sidequests and the National Dex to keep me happy post-mainquest, but I’ll be able to tick this game off after getting to the end of Victory Road).


Here’s a couple of recent screens to show the progress:


Yep… that’s 48 hours!

It’s April already!!

I started playing Pokemon HeartGold during the week and loving it so far (I’m a Pokemon geek from way back). Even though it’s a Gold/Silver remake, it incorporates elements from Diamond/Pearl and well… some newer components that you’ll have to discover for yourself. Considering that I spent over 50 hours playing Pokemon Diamond, I’d better strap myself in for the long haul.

I’ve also been playing through The Wizard’s Pen because I’m a sucker for seek and find games.

Of course, there’s always Sims 2, but I’ve been taking a little break from it lately. Takes stamina to get to 10 generations. 😉
