Here are some noteworthy things that happened on this challenge:
- I was getting faster times in comparison to blue version, for the most part, until the end of the game.
- Venasaur and Charizard had the most trouble at the end. Both had trouble with Lorelei. Both had spent around half the total play time trying to overcome the final challenge.
- Blastoise had a much easier time, and the numbers more closely resembled blue version’s results.
- Some of the struggle came from getting unlucky when facing Lorelei and Agatha.
- In one battle, Lorelei froze Venasaur twice in a row!
- I think some of the time saved was using repels and the fact that there is a run button after you defeat Brock.
- Another factor was my great familiarity with this game and blue version.
- I was not anticipating such a struggle near the end though. I thought this would happen more in later games. I anticipate that the games will get harder moving forward, especially in games where the starters have limited movepools.
So that concludes the results I had with Leaf Green Version. Next up, Diamond Version!
