wait, is dusk form lycanroc locked behind an event?

im seeing that you need a special event rockruff with a certain ability, but i thought you coulda just found them in the wild too

if so thats lame i wanted to use that one
yeah, it sucks

at least people can still breed them so they're always in circulation

i beat lanas trial

i actually lost against the totem pokemon the first time, it became quickly apparent my team isnt suited to handle water types right now

how cool would it have been if they opened up the whole island to you at start and you could have chosen to do the 3 trials in any order? i understand they probably didnt want the player to feel overwhelmed, but they could have kept the linear checkpoints but the player was more than free to bypass them

i was actually surprised when i was able to skip the battle royal and head straight to the wela volcano. i havent attempted to do the trial yet tho, so im not TRULY sure if i can do things out of order

yeah like i said, very low exploration

it doesn't bother me at all, but i can sympathize with the feeling of wanting to go somewhere, but not being able to for the game's arbitrary reasons

i just finished mallows trial

that battle was pretty damn intense. i easily got rekt but the sunny day/solar blade, but then my pikachu (who i named pancake) was able to survive 2 back to back solar blades w/ 1 HP (ya know, from the affection bonus)

her static also activated so i spammed charm to lower its attack the all the way down and have an easy time

god i love pokemon lol

definitely my favorite trial (except they changed some of them from the original sun/moon, so i think yours was different)

i just beat the 2nd grand trial

had a much tougher time than the 1st grand. i actually lost twice this time

her lileep had a type advantage over 4/6 of my team, and the other 2 (steenee & pikachu) werent that useful

that being said, i spammed teeter dance and magical leaf to slowly whittle it down, then lycanroc wasnt too much of a hassle

overall, this game isnt as easy as i expected. thats good

ya know, im really glad they did away w/ HMs in gen vii (i havent played Lets Go but ive read HMs dont exist in those either?)

before i bought UM, i was actually gonna replay X. it was a pain having to build my team AROUND the HMs, as i didnt wanna use any hm slaves

now, in um i didnt have to worry about that at all and and chose any pokemon id like

my point is, i hope they stick w/ it in sword & shield. and if diamond & pearl remakes ever happen, they shouldnt force HMs. if i recall correctly, sinnoh had so many HMs you needed at least 2 HM slaves?

east coast so i get off a little easier with 9 AM, but even 6 AM i'd be happy with

that way, even if i miss it, i get to wake up and instantly have a direct waiting for me

beats having it doing school/work hours

with the recent announcement of pokemon home, i kinda wished they made pokemon Bank free now. the 3ds games are basically obsolete now soo why not

i used to have it but i dont wanna spend $5 because im poor

either way, i think ima try to complete the alolan pokedex in UM. i was, like, 10 pokemon away from completeing it in Moon, and yes it would make sense to just go back to it... but i dont wanna

every time i tell myself i'm gonna complete the dex, i always crash and burn on some random time-sensitive gamestop event and give up because i'm not about to go to gamestop for that

what's your main team looking like

true, but i dont count the mythical pokes from events

ive completed the whole national dex in Y, so the alolan pokedex shouldnt be a hassle at all

team

i dont really care for natures and IVs and all that, so it's not the best team ever

to be honest, noibat is kinda falling behind, she gets KO'ed pretty easily but i thought itd be intresting to have a small challenge

the sheep pokemon is cute, i wonder what it evolves into

dynamaxing immediately reminded of godzilla. fitting

those raid battles are kinda cool, im glad theyre still be influenced by Go

the legendaries kinda left a lot to be desired, but i prefer shield's. it's kinda lame how they just slapped a sword into its mouth

but overall the game looks gorgeous and im pretty excited
