I bought Pearl in 08 and played it for awhile. I just started playing again and it took me awhile to remember what I had to do. I'm hooked on it...again! Just over a month later, I have beaten the game. The final battle was intense. Garchomp was the last Pokemon for Cynthia and I lost Palkia so I thought I was done without being able to use Dragon-Type moves. I had two Pokemon left: Luxray and Lucario. Luxray was taken out quickly and Lucario was my last chance. Then I remembered: I taught Lucario Dragon Pulse! Garchomp used a move and it wasn't effective so after two attacks of Dragon Pulse, I won! Great battle, great game. Next up: Pokemon White! Mod Edit: No double posting.
