Jacob Potila was actually a Jacob Flotilla of lies.- WarTurkey
I'm glad I skipped out on this trash. Just gonna wait until Gamefreak gets their act together and makes an actually good game that truly feels at home on the new hardware like they should.

I thought you were set on getting it anyway.

On the topic though I still can't pull myself through Ultra moon for what a bore it is. I'm probably gonna just emulate some older titles at this point.

meanwhile, as a supporter of this garbage:



here's the team i'm rolling with coming into the endgame

as much as i like galar's new additions, i did kinda just wind up using legacy mons for the entire playthrough, mainly because rain is an insanely fun strategy to build a team around, and i've been desperately trying to make it work again since gen 6 when the weather wars died, but galar hasn't really offered much in the way of rain support as far as i've been able to tell

- i'd prefer to be using a politoed right now, but pelipper is literally the only rain setter available in galar, and i suppose he's objectively better than politoed anyway. i just think it's a boring pokemon design-wise

- raichu synergizes well with pelipper with its 100% accurate thunders and ability to use surf, although she's gonna have to get replaced as soon as i'm able to grind out a lightning rod pikachu in max raid battles (which has been a miserable experience)

- toxicroak is my favorite member; he's very powerful and has fantastic residual recovery with black sludge + dry skin, which also makes him immune to opposing water-type moves (so raichu can spam surf in doubles with no repercussions). sucker punch was nerfed, however, which makes me very sad

- ferrothorn is ferrothorn

- ninjask is only here for baton pass shenanigans; toxicroak is his best friend

- crawdaunt is only here because before buying the game, i used a random number generator to determine a single pokemon that i HAD to include in my team, but otherwise, he's probably the first thing getting replaced once i beat the game

all the galar pokemon i was interested in using don't really have any synergy with rain whatsoever, which is a shame (except for barraskewda, but i don't know if having a barraskewda over a rapid spinner or spinblocker would be intelligent)

sword/shield's BIGGEST FLAW (mainly gameplay-wise) is how they handled hidden abilities

it's the one thing that they haven't streamlined at this point, which pisses me off because having the wrong ability can render an otherwise competitively viable pokemon completely worthless

have yall beaten the game yet? i still havent, i spend a lot of time fooling around in the wild area

i dont have a picture, but my team consists of inteleon, boltund, thievul, centiskorch, alcreamie, and sandaconda

the latter 3 cant gigantmax, which i think is REALLY stupid that only some pokemon of a species can gmax

i know it's not the best team ever but i wanted to go in this game blind, rather than know my team beforehand, which i usually do

intelleon? i'm not sure what your name is in-game, but i may have joined a couple of your max raids (my in-game name is J)

i think i'm on the cusp of beating the game, but since i'm playing along with a couple friends, i'm stopping myself from actually beating the game before they catch up

and yeah, the gigantamax thing is definitely stupid as hell—i can only imagine someone going through the whole game with a corviknight or something, training it up from the beginning as a rookidee, only to discover that it'll NEVER be able to achieve its ultimate form, and that if you want to use it, you'll have to catch some other random corviknight that you never grew attached to or give a shit about, because it's not YOUR corviknight

not only that, corviknight has a cool hidden ability, so you might end up finding that gigantamax corviknight, only for it to have something shitty like Unnerve, which you can't do anything about

like i was saying before, it really is the worst

yea, the water starter. i swear it only had 1 L though

uhh my in-game name is noumi lol, im playing as a girl dont judge

yup, that gigantmax scenario is literally me. at first, i thought EVERY pokemon of the species gigantmaxed, then i thought it just had to do with its dynamax level. once i give it enough candy and max it out, then surely id be able to gigantmax it

nope

i didnt want to replace them, cuz like you said, i had already formed that bond with those pokemon

totally fine, any help is appreciated (especially if you're strong)

although that time, i was just trying to see what my kingler's g-max move was gonna be (but then i just got one-shotted)

claydol doesn't even have any HAs or anything, so it's not really worth seriously going for imo

So the game isnt even bad and pokemon fans are just cry babies, who'd've thunk.
As always it's one step forward one step back, but it's a solid competitor in the series.

Not too impressed with any of the new pokemon. A few select gems and a lot of ugly ones.

Also Leon is an asshole.

It's perfect for the Switch because you switch the console off within five minutes of playing

l've legit been on a rotation of 18 different pokémon just to stay beneath the levels of my opponents

it's been fun and all, but i've never had to try so hard to keep from being overleveled

not that i care about difficulty that much in a pokémon game, but still
