But usually, no, not this long. This is an exception more than anything, but still, it's certainly nowhere near the longest I've played.
And I think it was about an hour and a half.
Anyway, to do reviews:
Msc mentions - Donphan, Houndoom, Slowbro, Muk
Blissey, a category on its own.
Popular failures. I have no idea why people used these. – Kingdra, Alakazam, Jumpluff, Scizor, Smeargle
Pokemon that reshaped GSC – Snorlax, Raikou, Suicune, Skarmory, Marowak
Omnipotent – Zapdos, Starmie, Forretress, Cloyster, Miltank, Heracross, Nidoking, Dragonite, Tyranitar
