Subject: The Final Special Episode ------------------------------------------- 10/10. Would play again.
After the original story had happened, the Hero gives back all the castles to their previous owners, and Nobunaga goes out on a journey across Ransei, giving his castle to Ranmaru. As Nobunaga is visiting Aurora, all other warlords come to Aurora, and challenge both the Hero and Nobunaga. So you start off with the Hero, Nobunaga, and Oichi in Aurora, and set out on a quest to conquer Ransei and prove to everyone what they are capable of. But this is no normal special episode! Sure, it's the same concept of "conquer everything" like most of the other special episodes, but here's how it's different:
Every building in Ransei is automatically at level 3. Shops, Mines, Training Areas, everything. This makes it possible for easily encountering legendaries like Articuno, Groudon, and Mewtwo.
Almost every warlord either is is evolved, has the best link pokemon, both, or has an evolved pokemon. For example, Hideyoshi with Infernape, Motochika with Samurott, Yoshihiro with Conkeldurr, Ginchiyo with Luxray, Motonari with Serperior, Ujiyasu with Gigalith, Kotaro with Hydreigon, Nene with Crobat, Masamune with Braviary, Ieyasu with Aggron, Nohime with Mismagius, (all evolved warolords), Tadakatsu with Metagross, Gracia with Musharna, Kunoichi with Scrafty, Yukimura with Pignite, (you get the point ...). So that really made it interesting.
It took me a few days to finish since I got caught up in all the opportunities I got to get everyone to really high links and evolve, and link with a ton of Pokemon...yeeah. xD But I had a lot of fun doing that. Then the credits, omg. They had the normal credits music, and instead of the normal credits short movie they usually show, it's instead a little slideshow of every warlord at their castle doors, and if you've gotten their best link in the game, it shows them with a happy face next to their best link. If you haven't gotten their best link, they sit there in a normal or sad looking pose. xD It was kinda funny to see. :3
I just loved every part of it. It was a great way to wrap everything up and end the game. xD
So yeah, dunno if anyone's gotten that far yet or plans to. It took me over 250 hours to get there so yeah. But um...there's incentive. :3

Oh, story spoilers? I haven't gotten to the last story yet, I'd say I'm about halfway. I have to admit, I got a bit disheartened when all the different stories were starting to look very similar, and I got worried that the last story was just the same as the first story, but maybe with stronger Pokemon. But those extras you described sound interesting.
