Hyper Mode - Yay or Nay?

    So your shadow Pokemon's gone into hyper mode. What do you usually do? Do you call it straight away to help get it closer to purification, or do you keep it in hyper mode for a while for extra critical hits?

    For me, I may keep it in hyper mode if I'm facing a particularly difficult opponent, or if my Pokemon can't learn any more moves by opening its heart further. It has, however, frustrated me a few times after a battle when I can't heal it up, so I would usually try and call it before the end of the battle if I have a chance.
  2. I don't like using it, I normally need to heal my Pokemon after battle.

    I call it out instantly. I don't usually like using Shadow Pokemon.

    I call its name right when it enters it. I did try to get some critical hits before when one of them was in Hyper/Reverse Mode. But, I didn't do it that much.

    I call it out of Hyper Mode right away because I like how calling it lowers the shadow bar a bit.

    In Colosseum I would sometimes leave the Pokemon in Hyper Mode for a while to get the critical hit chance, unless it was one of those that took forever to purify. In XD I would always call the Pokemon out of Reverse Mode immediately because I didn't want it to hurt itself after every turn.

    I like using hyper mode on shadow pokemon because it makes me feel evil >: D
    Although near the end of the battle I call them to get rid of a bit of shadow.

    When I had a Pokemon entering Hyper Mode, I would usually call it out of it as soon as possible. But there were a few exceptions, if I would get a disadvantage in the battle by calling it, I would let it stay in Hyper Mode for the moment and call it out later on.

    Nah.Snapping your pokemon out of it and getting rid of some shadow is more worth it than a bigger chance of a critcal.

    I call it out instantly. Not only does it lower the shadow bar, but I don't like that it sometimes wont attack.

    I may not call it right away, but will almost always do it before the end of the battle.

    In Colloseum I don't mind my pokemon being in hyper mode because their moves are often critical hits.

    For the most part, I call them out of it immediately. In fact, I mostly battle people so my Pokémon will enter Hyper Mode, just to get them out of it.

    In tough matches, if I actually have Shadow Pokémon on me, I'll keep them that way. I don't think that's even been the case, though.

    I usually call out my Pokémon right away. I care more about getting my Shadow Pokémon purified rather than squeezing extra power out of them.

    I'll usually call it out, but if I'm against a tough opponent, I'll gladly take advantage of the boosted critical hit ratio.

    I usually call it right away. When I'm purifying I go through the mt battle challenge with my shadows so (at first) they can go into hyper mode, get called, hopefully go hyper again, get called, exc many times in one battle with only taking little damage (which is healed between rounds anyway).

    I let it be that way for at least one or two turns. then call it out. It kinda frustrated me that I called them out as soon as possible just to get in hyper/reverse mode again =_=

    Depends with the pokemon and situation. If I was in a battle with my shadow hitmontop in my first playthrough, then the first thing I'd do would be to call it out. On my second play through, I was in a battle with some pretty powerful pokemon (I can't remember which ones) so I got a few attacks in first. Usually I'll call it right away, but sometimes, if there's an advantage to not doing it, I won't.

    I love getting in Hyper mode, because it speeds up the purifying. I'd rather have that, than more crits (especially when catching a Shadow Poke).
