<_< *Hem* yeah, speaking of "Fleshing out" a character, it may sound kinda weird to ask, but how old are the Player Characters these days? I remember back in the days of red and blue we just assumed they were 10, and that could hold for the first two generations, maybe three if you accept May as a really early bloomer, but Shauna and Serena kinda make it hard to believe they're pre-teens (Tierno too, given his size).
Don't get me wrong, that's a good thing in my eyes, a lot better idea than sending ten year olds out, alone, in a world of monsters with a recently hatched pal of their own and hoping for the best. And youngsters tend to get a bit stir crazy in the mid teens anyway, so something like this could be good for them, I'm just wondering for curiosity's sake
I know that applies to Honedge (in fact, if you play with a Honedge in Pokemon-Amie, one that has developed some affection for you gets unhappy if you play with its tassel (because that's the part through which it drains life). On the other hand, Doublade doesn't seem to mind having its tassels touched (instead, it dislikes the crest in the back being touched), so I wonder if Honedge loses the life-draining trait upon evolution, or if the source of the drain moves?
I have yet to acquire the proper stone, so I cannot test Aegislash's liked/disliked spots as of yet.
The odd thing for me is, I got both games on the same day, they were my first two 3DS games, and I seem to be spending more time on New Leaf (My first Animal Crossing game ever) than Pokemon (Which I've been playing for damn near 15 years). I don't know why, and I try and play X a bit more, but I can't help but feel oddly guilty about abandoning my town...
