In D/P, the game used too much "noob" and "own" things.
Also, the legendaries got almost 500 times harder to catch.
Usually I can just catch one with a normal Pokeball.
I waisted almost 30 Timer Balls to catch Giratina.
I had about 60!
The Champ was too much of a bragger, and she looked weird.
But her Pokemon were the strongest yet. (not counting the second time in the elite four in FR/LG.)
