My sister got Ruby for her birthday and completed the game in a week. She pretty much soloed the game with her Blaziken. Her Blaziken was level 72 when she finished the game. My team on LeadGreen was balanced, with levels in the high 50s. We like to battle each other but I always win, usually because of a type advantage on her Blaziken. I tell her to train more, but to her that just means "beat up the Elite Four a gazillion times until Blaziken levels up." It would be nice if there was something to discourage this. I realize Black and White had a "XP scaling" system where you get less XP the higher your levels are compared to your opponent's. IMO, that didn't really help. It is possible to have a level 40 Emboar at Elesa with little to no excess grinding. There needs to be something to discourage this. [/walloftext]
No there doesn't. Not only would this prevent solo runs (the challenge kind), but it takes away the choice from players.
