Kinda new to Pokemon... I played soulsilver a long while back, but never finished it. I haven't really been interested in any other Pokemon game since, but I want to give Pokemon Y a shot.
One thing that frustrated me in SS was that if I power leveled my Pokemon, they would start ignoring me. I think some kid (irl) told me I need to get a gym badge in order for them to pay attention to me once more.
My question is, does this sort of thing still happen in all the games, and do you think it will happen in future Pokemon games?
Please forgive my ignorance (be gentle).
