That happens to me sometimes, you overlook all the little aspects that make it great and just focus on the negatives. I'm a perfectionist so that happens a lot. I'm sure that everyone who has ever played pokemon will be grateful if they do make a remake of the third gen.
Well there's nothing wrong with that. Pokemon games are supposed to be played at your leisure instead of rushing everything. I kind of wasted most of my time by playing Pokemon Amie for maybe a couple hours all together. Just the new development of being able to pet your Pokemon is amazing. Tyrunt is adorable, all of the fossil pokemon are adorable; i just don't necessarily use them in battle that much, which is a shame. Fossils are super cool though, imagine if we were able to do this in real life. That would actually be very terrifying.
I remember that hunt... I lost my motivation after a thousand eggs, which i tend to do in most things. I did end up hatching my shiny pumpkaboo though after 80 eggs, he's the best thing ever~ I'm going to have to trade with someone to evolve it though, so that will be tedious... But it will get done. I am going to make it a plan for me to not quit anymore, at least for the game.
