Agreed about FR/LG being too harsh. They should've just kept all the evolution items away (which they did) and made your Pokémon's happiness plateau at 200 until facing the Elite Four, after which happiness would be uncapped and they could then evolve. (Trading non-Kantos from another FR/LG would then be permitted.) Would have worked much cleaner IMO, and I'd expect something like this for HG/SS.I hated what they did with FRLG and not evolving Crowbat, etc.
Sorry, I forgot about Blissey. Blissey and related belong.
I'm not singling you out, I've just seen a lot of people saying this so I thought something need to be said. People, Chansey cannot be cut! It's evolved form, Blissey, is a Johto Pokemon! Chansey needs to be in Johto so that Blissey can be obtainable before the Elite 4!
