I like the Pokeathlon, mostly because you use the touch screen a lot.

Default What do you think about the Pokeathlon?

I think that it is a cool minigame/feature in Pokemon HGSS.

I think it's great for getting items. its faster, more fun, and easier than the battle tower and all the other stuff in the battle fronteir

Easy at first, ridiculously hard to win eventually. Many of the stats are worthless, and some are way OP, skill does nothing, Stamina/speed/power do everything.

Another poorly implemented mini game that could have been made awesome easily.

To be honest, it beats contests 10 to 1, though Nintendo needs to focus more on breeding/battling, and less on minigames.

Pokeathlon has got to be the best minigame ever in a pokemon game, well worth dumping the game corner for. The games and music is good, and the prizes are awesome. I ignored it for the most of the game, since non-GC minis had disappointed me ever since RSE. I realized how wrong I was to assume the same of HGSS.

I love the Pokeathlon! It's so much fun. It's a great game to play with my sister and (2) neighbours. I am the master at the relay race out of everyone I know, my record is a nice lofty 17.8
EDIT: I also usually don't score lower than 16.2, and my record run was preformed by a team of level one Shinx.

I enter three Togepi when I try the speed course. On the last event (The running one) I've got over 18 laps!

About the ONLY events where I've detected Skill rating as necessity are in Snow Throw and Goal Roll.

For Snow Throw, it actually helps to have at least ONE Pokemon with high Skill and/or Power ratings. Why Skill is needed isn't entirely based on throwing Accuracy, but how fast your snowball goes after you've flung it at a target. It sounds a bit crazy, but you'd need to have Pokemon with completely maxed Skill and one with nearly no Skill side-by-side to notice the discrepancy.

Goal Roll is always something crazy everytime, but mainly Skill just affects how long you can punt the ball after dashing. Although, Power and Speed come in handy for when you want to slightly nudge the ball (Power), and when you want to wreak some havoc on the field (Speed). Although for the lfie of me, I still can't get the Potential trophy for Pennant Capture.

Now, is it just me, or is it near impossible to get a 500 score on the Jump event? I've yet to figure out the scoring formula the game uses for Disc Catch, and sometimes I find the scoring for Hurdle Dash just as annoying.

The pokteleon is better than anything from other generations.

My Favorite Coruse was the Stamina one. It had all of the fun events.
