Here are a few takeaways from this chart:

  • Serperior had the worst time, with both the longest time taken, and most losses.
  • Samurott had the easiest time, with shortest time and fewest losses.
  • This is despite the time Samurott lost when trying to defeat Burgh. The time was made up with significantly fewer Elite Four attempts in comparison to the other two runs.
  • Samurott’s level was much lower due to this as well.
  • The trend of the grass type having the worst time continues here as well.
  • The early game was the hardest point for all three starters, while the game gets easier around the middle due to access to the Lucky Egg item, which speeds up experience point growth.
  • There were a few elite four challenge was hard for both Serperior and Emboar, but easy for Samurott. The type matchups for all Pokémon involved is to blame here.
  • Of note, the battle against N and Ghetsis in the finale required me to sacrifice an HM slave so that Zekrom didn’t do any fighting in both battles, a quirk of this game.

And that wraps up this game’s challenge. Next, we will go onto X version to see how well I do in Kalos.
