That is just a dumb argument. the objective is as criticism goes the set become a fun one.
3 Sep 21:09 2019
Happiness from 70+ is OK. I don't see any way to do 0-50 without trades or Pokemon abuse. Tips?
4 Sep 4:12 2019
deposit pikachu in the pc or have him faint to lower happiness and mood, use items or win battles to increase happiness and mood, walk around to normalize mood.
5 Sep 23:14 2019
Friendship and mood achievements are very annoying
10 Sep 3:22 2019
keep using items even if it won't do anything the happiness still goes up.
20 Sep 0:31 2019
To get happiness below 50: capture another pokemon and keep depositing/withdrawing Pikachu from the PC (-3 each time).To raise happiness keep using potion when Pikachu has full HP. Almost all moods can be done within 10 min after starting a new game.
21 Sep 12:30 2019
The Happiness/Mood achievement are super enjoyable. Thanks for putting them in even though some objected to them. They're fun and not hard at all(especially if you start doing them at the beginning).
26 Oct 11:50 2019
i, too, enjoyed the mood achievements. this is a great set, and very refreshing to do after doing the basic sets from Red and Blue.

Mastered again!

C'mon guys, puting a rat in a PC, then withdrawing it, and finally, give it some potions and walking a bit with it isn't that hard, and this rat is freaking cool/cute!
3 Jan 16:09 2020
The Friendship/Mood achievements is not hard it just take time
24 Feb 13:52 2020
Mastered! (32:10 IGT, ocasional speed ups, no glitches)(DIFF: 2/5)
25 Feb 2:56 2020
Just jumping on that I think the mood cheevos are great; achievements should partially be to show off interesting things, and seeing all of the mood animations is really neat.
6 Mar 20:02 2020
The Jigglypuff achievement isnt for falling asleep to a wild Jigglypuff, but the one with its trainer in one of the Pokmon Centers - I think Pewter or Cerulean!
17 Mar 8:43 2020
Deu um trabalho, mas consegui. Tive que iniciar outro save pra fazer a conquista The Long Way Gauntlet [m].
