    I never played collosium but XD wasn't that hard. I mean, I guess compared to the hand holding of the main line games it is but I think I had a rougher time in pokemon blue when I was 12.

    I’m not a big fan of bashing on the recent Pokémon games, but just the difference in personality between Colosseum and Sword/Shield is insane. Like, Colosseum came out in 2004, and yet it manages to be more charming and have more interesting animations then a game that came out 15 years and 3 consoles later… and it’s a side game developed by a third party!

    Loved the angry eyes of the Justy fight lol. I loved these games for the challenge cause u had to catch Pokemon that were slowly killing your team and you weren't able to just grind the power and blast the game u had to have some strategy and use status conditions.

    XD is harder due to the fact shadow pokemon have type effectiveness on every single type, but if you want the most difficult authentic pokemon game that does not deviate from the main series formula too hard, its definitley Colosseum.

    Just to let you know that two things happen after you rescue Vander.
    1. Outskirt Stand sells more kinds of Pokeballs(like the Net Ball which I use to make it easier to catch Suicune).
    2. You can refight all the trainers in Pyrite Building and Pyrite Cave every time you leave Pyrite Town. Going to the Under counts as leaving Pyrite Town.

    Watching the original Mad Max trilogy led me to appreciate how much this game takes influence from it.
    - Pyrite Town is Bartertown
    - The Under is Underworld with Pokémon battles instead of cleaning pig sht
    - The Colosseums are Pokémon Thunderdomes, especially Pyrite's gritty Colosseums
    - Pyrite Building is the Halls of Justice from the first film
    - Phenac City and Agate Village are the oasis in the Crack in the Earth.
    - The Kid's Grid is the Lost Tribe with more tech.
    - The World Map is the Australian Wasteland
    - Cipher is the Main Force Police
    - Team Snagem are the maruaders from the second film
    - Wes is Max

    I live for this game's battle animations. All the love and care that went into it is so cool. Zigzagoon even runs in to attack, and recover, by zigzagging, as a Zigzagoon actually would.
    Ludicolo dancing, Hitmontop spinning around, Cacnea balancing on its spikes...
    It's honestly all just so good and I really wish we could get a modern take on it.

    Personaly, I'm not a huge fan of this video. Can't exactly pinpoint why, but I think it's a mix of a few things - I don't know the game, it's not very well explained, like it all started from the middle, and just the whole pace and everything feels... confusing?
    Hopefully it's just me. I really love you and your videos either way SmallAnt

    Wait do people actually believe the Gamecube games are the hardest for casual play, or is that a joke? The only difficulty I had was Colosseum's end game due to leveling, and the last one or two sections of the 100 battle gauntlet for the same reasons. I also remember the sequel being much, much easier than Colosseum. I wish they'd bring these styles of games back, but as an actual open world game, with a full set of wild pokemon. So much more could be done in the modern day, if only there was a pokemon dev team that would actually put this level of effort into a game again. Honestly, I preferred the shadow pokemon arc to any other typical evil group, because the games actually had in-depth mechanics pertaining to the story for the entire game. These games also had so much more personality to them.
