@SLiM: Worldwide was giving us problems last night, but once we all were in we were okay.

also, yeah, most of us who've been playing for a while switched to Worldwide a long time ago — not only is it much easier to find a group of people to race, we can also earn VR (which you can't in a community). What we all usually do is pile in and join a friend via the Friends/Opponents list who's already playing Worldwide so that we all end up in a room together (you may have to sit out and spectate a few times, but the randoms usually drop out eventually). Even if you've only raced someone via community before and don't have their FC added to your system, you can find them under 'Opponents' later, so that may help you find some elusive NLers to race if they've gone WW on you :3

Boxlife is kinda something you either love or hate. I loved it, even to the point of powering through R&D Mode just so I could tackle the latter Factory levels. i like messing around with the little house and yard at the main menu, too — collecting crap in Factory Mode is awesome~
i still need to continue on and max out my money so i can get everything :3

@Kaiser, Dave, Mickeymac, turtle: it's not like it's a new idea; i'm pretty sure i've seen the like before. i kept thinking back to Civilization where you have to have learned X technology and Y technology to progress to Z technology (like alphabet + masonry = mathematics is possible to learn), though it'd just be adapted to a Pokemon title, lol. something like that might actually help to get me back into the series :3

I don't see why it couldn't be possible to have a system where if a pokemon learns X move and Y move, those two can be combined to create Z move (or not, if you prefer the base moves to the combined version, or if merging two moves later gives a better result). like with a Pidgey you'd have to merge Gust and Sand Attack to learn Whirlwind, or you could save Gust and merge it with Agility later for Tailwind, or something like that.

those were just examples, but it could be done too where TMs could be automatically merged with a different move to create a more powerful one in instances where a pokemon would not normally be able to learn a given TM move, or if that TM would add a different level of something (status effects, HP drain, etc.) to a move the pokemon already has.

idk if i'm making sense or not D: back to MK7~

@Kaiser: Where has Feenie been saying TM? She's talking about an item that would be used from your bag (like a Bike or a Potion) instead of having to waste one of your pokemon's move slots with an HM move, since those tend to suck and just take up space. You're the one talking TMs...

Coin totals make no difference. No, literally. You can finish every race with zero coins and get three stars.

i'm sure you don't mean to come across as a jerk, but when i two-star a given GP after a perfect run, no falling off the track, no getting busted back down to 8th place, but little in the way of coinage and then i three-star it with a perfect run, no falling off the track, no getting busted back down to 8th place and 8-10 coins in all four tracks of the same GP, yeah, i'm going to attribute it to coins.

Focusing on collecting coins as well as first place worked for me, and so I'm passing that info on.

@ryanthehedgehog: these are all questions you need to be asking the Nintendo rep that will be handling your repair order. there's a good chance you knocked some other things around in there when it was dropped in the first place, so make sure you mention everything that's wrong with it now. if you're going to be charged for the repair, may as well make absolute sure that everything wrong is fixed.

@kyuubikid213: If you're looking to three-star everything, concentrate on picking up coins. a good rule of thumb is that if you're able to max out your coins and snag first in every race of a given GP, you'll three-star it.

just start it over if you don't get first in one of the races (it's possible to three-star a GP with one second-place finish, but highly unlikely). if you take a low number of coins but still get first, just keep going — i don't know if the game counts coins you lose by getting hit with items or not, but i've three-starred GPs with low coin totals (like three or so) at the finish line before.
