Yeah, I heard and read that rumor a lot actually.I kept feeling that was punishment since a lot of Europe and Canada broke release date for X&Y.
But then again, you still shouldn't punish your target audience like that.
A week doesn't sound like a long time in the real world, but in the world of Pokémon you can get an awful lot of things done in an entire week.
Well, it's time to pick a God and pray for a worldwide release.
As a matter of fact, I couldn't agree more with you there.Pokemon Frontier. It just need to be more competitive and less "unfair", like no Evasion increasement allowed, and should worth getting more BPs, at least for the first two wins in a row.
The Frontier in Emerald has a wide variety of challenges.
But yes, the amount of hax and luck-based strategies used by the AI is preposterous!
I mean, the only real way to beat it in its own game is to use some time-consuming setup strategies and / or fight back with hax as well.
I could imagine younger players getting really frustrated since they don't have enough experience yet to build certain teams.
Pokémon should in my opinion stay a game franchise that basically anyone can pick up play.
They should in my opinion implement a mode "For Fun", which gives you a small amount of Battle Points, an "Expert Mode" for more challenging battles, and finally a "Veteran Mode" where the trainers will use the aforementioned luck-based strategies and reward you with a considerably bigger amount of Battle Points.
That way you don't enforce the difficulty on your players, but you rather let the player choose himself / herself with which difficulty level he / she wants to play.
Just my 2 cents though.
