I just started doing the Pokeathlon thanks to my little bro. He played it a few times and said he liked it, but I still wouldn't go. Finally he convinved me to go, and that's all I've been doing for the past two days. I love it, and I'm pretty sure its what I'm gonna be doing most of the time. What are your records so far? I wanna see how mine compare, since the only person I have to judge off of is my little brother. Here is mine so far:
Hurdle Dash-83.8 Seconds Pennant Capture-40 Flags Circle Push-61 Points Block Smash-136 Pieces Disc Catch-86 Points Lamp Jump-514 Points Relay Run-18.4 Laps Ring Drop-200 Points Snow Throw-61 Hits Goal Roll-6 Points
I also have 4,011 Points (check the big statue of you in the last room to see points). I have nine Collective Trophies, two Trust Trophies, 7 Potential Trophies, and 8 Friendship Trophies.
And as a question, what are your medalist Pokemon? I need some more to get the rest of the Trust Trophies.
Thread Recap (last 10 posts from newest to oldest)
Here's some Pokémon I use often: Speed Course: Nidoran(male)+Zubat+Venonat Power Course: Meganium+Lugia+Mawile or Groudon Skill Course: Mewtwo+Sneasel, Articuno, or Raiku (sometimes even Smeargle or Cacturn) I also sometimes use these guys for the Speed Course-except Smeargle and Cacturn. Stamina Course: Meganium+Lugia+ Mawile or Groudon Jump Course: I don't go on this course that much, but my best score is with Zubat, Latios, and Ledyba.
*Still working on some trophies and pennant capture, but I don't play as much*
Anyway, here are my strats:
Hurdle Dash: I use fast Pokémon with bad jump. Having them in the air for a long time throws me off. Pennant Capture: Never give up! (Not much of a strategy, but yeah) Circle Push: I go for the points. I find that Pokémon with good power and stamina are good for this. Like Meganium. Block Smash: For my top score I got lucky with the spamming and hit the weaknesses in the slabs so my Pokémon just tore through them. Good power and stamina is very important. Disc Catch: I have my Pokémon spread out horizontally across the stage. I stay in the 3-5 pt range and push the enemy Pokémon off. I'd suggest good speed so you can run back to your positions if you get knocked off. If your Pokémon have different jump levels, then try to remember how long they stay in the air so you can get the discs. Lamp Jump: I just keep jumping and try to clear out the board as much as possible before it refreshes. Having good jump is nice. Relay Run: Speed is most important. Stamina should be prioritized second. Getting one of the easy courses would be nice, and avoid the obstacles and enemy Pokémon. Ring Drop: When an enemy Pokémon switches in, they'll be immune for a bit, so if you jump at the right time you can knock them off the ring. However, they might move. I just run around with battling it out with the others, trying not to fall to often because you lose points if you do. Snow Throw: I tilt the DS and spam flick one side team (usually yellow). Goal Roll: I keep one Pokémon at my goal, another in the middle, and the third runs around. The one in the middle can insta-score goals depending on where the ball spawns. The third one runs around if the middle one doesn't score, but I usually end up having both of them run around. The main point is to keep scoring without having the ball land inside you goal.
So if you read this then I say hi. Have a nice day/night!

Hey, I see some people having difficulty with snow throw. I used to, then when i started spamming one team, I got a record of 100 hits. Kind of excessive, since the maximum points you can get is 200, and you get that at 67 hits. I did this with slowking, raikou and entei (not even a really big skill-oriented team).

My records are:
Hurdle dash - 81.0 secs Pennant capture - 44 flags Circle Push - 63 points Block Smash - 115 blocks Disc catch - 82 points Lamp jump - 528 points Relay run - 17.5 laps Ring drop - 165 points snow throw - 60 hits goal roll - 12 goals
For Goal roll i keep two pokemon back as goalies, and drag the third around the field. Pennant capture i have no clue how i got that decent score, my second best is a crappy 35... For mega high scores on disk catch put two pokemon back in the fives and leave one up front but only catch with the front one if you are positive someone else will catch it otherwise, the round i won, (in the hard area) the score was 82 vs. 2 vs. 0 vs. 0
