>joke npcs have more pokemon than gym leaders and elite 4 members
The absolute state of this franchise
Thanks god fangames exist
I never understood this even from Gen 1. I get only having 2 pokemon when you're in the first couple of routes, but the fact that not every trainer hits the 6 pokemon limit just makes the game a slog. What's the point in having a Pokemon battle if you handicap yourself to only 2-3 mons?
The problem with giving every trainer 6 mons later on is that it can make battles a bit of a slog. Especially since they're still probably going to be weak enough that you can OHKO or almost OHKO them. It's also an exp thing.
NOOOOOOOOO!!!! EVERYTHING YOU SAID JUST MAKES SENSE NOOOOOOOOOO I HATE POKEMON ITS ALL BAD STOP MAKING SENSE
For regular trainers on routes I imagine their other mons are just fainted or not meant to fight (e.g. hm slaves). Gym leaders and E4 members make zero sense though
>For regular trainers on routes I imagine their other mons are just fainted
But they just stand there all day waiting to ambush you.
They probably ambushed other people before
I think route trainers are more designed to wear you down than actually beating your entire team. No pokemon center runs are doable
You have to remember the fact that pokemon games generally expect you to have multiple fights and go for long periods of time without being able to properly heal. Think of a route as having 1 trainer with 30 pokemon instead of 15 trainers with 2 pokemon.
They generally balance the games to be too easy for sure, but it would be worse if routes had 1 trainer with over 100 pokemon.
>if routes had 1 trainer with over 100 pokemon.
But you can only carry 6 pokemon
having played romhacks where almost every trainer has a full team, it's tedious as fucking shit
It's either fight trainers for 2x EXP and money or fight wild pokemon below your level for 1x EXP. Fighting wild pokemon is way more tedious.
>Tougher than nu-gen gym leaders and elite four members
What went wrong?
these trainers are mvps for older game ev training
>one time battles during the story where EVs don't matter
The Sinnoh one is infinitely rematchable with the vs seeker
My favorite one says something along the lines of "what u lil fag wanna fight? Fine let me see whats in the bucket" and throws fish at you until you beat them and then is like "that's all thats in there, now buzz off"
I used to think that they carried baseball bats.
