Updated the list.
Post any mistakes you may find here in this topic, don´t send me PMs.
Congrats to Jump´s 620 doubles hall, yadazhai´s 1K durant and all the other records that´s been posted recently. It´s nice to see people still going for records.
I haven´t played Pokémon for six months now and my break will continue for a while, still got some stuff to do in D3 (1200+ hours played lol get a life).
Keep it up guys, have fun and good luck.
EDIT: There was a question about why I kept going after 1K wins back in last gen. Up to then it was a pretty tense competition with Jump which pushed me to play "a lot" :) and him always being cryptic about his progression (like he never told that he lost and had to restart) made it even worse for me, being paranoid that I´d get jumped over within hours after posting a record...anyway when I knew I was leading by a few hundred, what kept me going was my personality trait that is I´d like to know my limits and testing myself, what my body and mind is capable of is fun to me (both in sports and games). Yes a part of the motivation came from being chased, but I would have continued even if Jump had said he stopped chasing me. But it´s pretty clear that the competitiveness of this topic and between capable players themselves made such high record possible.
There would be little to no motivation for the majority to keep going for insane records without any sort of comparison to others. My 2363 record back then (I remember being tired after work but still playing for hours, writing down logs, taking pictures etc. for hours each day, it was kind of a marathon) didn´t live much longer than a month as #1 though and we all know in what fashion it got beaten, how I acted immature and all, good old times :)
