    As the title says, what main series Pokémon game have you invested the most hours into above all the other games?

    The highest save time on any one file i've had is my Pearl version, with I think 441 hours. I played DP a lot back in the day when it was new. Second highest is my main copy of White 2, with 308 hours so far. But taking all playthroughs into account I think it's Black 2 and White 2, which i've clocked in over 650 hours between all my times going through it.

    How about you? What games have you put the most (or least) time into? Discuss!

    It would be HeartGold, but it's currently X/Y because I have restarted the games. X/Y I spent a lot of time shining hunting, breeding and more. And HeartGold had so much to do, and since I was younger it took a lot of time. I wish I didn't restart my HG game so much. One day I need to go through and 100% it.

    I put most of my time into Pokémon Platinum as there was a pretty decent aftergame, and I would journey across the region just using my vs seeker in order to train up all of my Pokémon to level 100.

    Diamond, although I spend a lot of time derping around and trying to fill up the dex, I have a save file on there that says that I played it over 600 hours :)

    Pokémon Pearl, my first game. Then Y, White 2, and White. Those are the main games I've played that I spent a bunch of time on. <3

    I would say that have to be my Diamond, I played that game all the time for a very long period, but it could also be my Whit 2 game since I also played that one a lot with the breeding and the PWT, I spend so much time battling in the PWT.

    Is one of these two, I don't remember exactly which one but is one of those two for sure. My playtime in X is no where near the hours I spend in these two games, not yet at least.

    Pokémon X, because that's my only actual game, all others were emulators, which I usually finish within an hour or two. I can't check it right now, but I'm pretty sure there's a few 100 hours on my Pokémon X cartridge.

    Sapphire. <3 I poured over 300 hours into that game as a kid; there was always something to do be it mix records, go through contests, train Pokémon, and so on. I was so enthusiastic about these games and had people to connect with so that made things so much more entertaining as a kid.

    Second is Pokémon X with around 300 hours as well though it's definitely not as much as Sapphire. Most of my time on X was spent breeding whereas in Sapphire I actually did things outside biking back and forth for hundreds of hours so it has a special place in my heart and is more memorable.

    Pokémon X/Y or D/P/Pt. I'm not sure because although I have 700+ hours on Pokémon Y I had 400+ hours on Diamond and have played through gen 4 the most out of any gen. D/P/Pt is probably higher but I'm not 100% sure.

    Oh, Pokémon Sapphire Version by far. I put hundreds of hours into that game. Still have it too!

    Each gen usually will have the most hours spent on it. I really maxed out all of my games unless I reset them. But X atm is where I am using the most time(see what I mean by the first sentence), since i berry grow, shiny hunt, breed, ev train etc.

    I gotta say Platinum, running with 999:59 hours and it won't go higher. Following up is my SoulSilver for obvious reasons, and I just trained a crapload.

    My least would probably be my Firered, after beating the league I didn't do much

    I think for me it's Pokémon X, with X I tried to do more things that I had not tried before like IV breeding, EV training, completing the national Pokédex, hunting for shinies, all kinds of stuff that I never really attempted before. After that I think maybe Black 2 because of the medals, as well as pokestar studios and the black tower.

    Easily Pokémon Pearl for me. Think I reached 999 hours on it, woohoo, yay for shiny hunting, egg breeding, and general putting together of teams for use in Pokémon Battle Revolution. Next up was my since-lost Pokémon Sapphire game, which clocked in something like...650ish hours? I have no idea what I was doing in-game to have so much time recorded, but I can hazard a guess that I was probably planting berries to make into Pokémon blocks to approve appeals for Pokémon contests. That and chasing that tv double battle pair around Hoenn, haha. I hope they return in the remakes!

    I don't know how many hours I've put into past games, but I think it would have to be X&Y, considering the countless hours I've spent breeding and Masuda Methoding...

    I currently have about 450 hours in my file. That's after restarting since some previous work, too O_o

    X&Y, despite the lack of post game content. On my main file alone, I have ~650+ hours logged. I take gaming too seriously sometimes :(

    As far as hours in a single game, that award goes to my X game, with nearly 2,000 hours according to my Activity Monitor, haha. If we're talking about how much time in general I've spent in a main-series game, definitely 3rd gen. I've replayed those games so many times I lost count. They were really fun back in the day, and solidified my love for Pokémon for many years to come.

    Pokémon Pearl! I spend lots of time playing it and even though I already beat the game, I still play it to breed and train Pokémon :)

    I am proud to say that my 500+ hour stint in Pokémon gold has now been overtaken by my 999+ hour marathon of Pokémon X. This is mostly due to breeding, and falling asleep while playing, but I do not regret a single moment.

    My brother and I got Pokémon Diamond waaay back

    We managed over 1000 hours.
    Shame he lost the cartridge. I honestly don't know what you could do in Sinnoh for 1000s of hours. Probably contests and poffins.

    Can't wait for the sinnoh remake
