The Rainbow Rocket stuff is so good

Spoiler
I love how the team leaders have the legendary from their respective versions, pretty good battles too.

Also as a major fan of BW and BW2 I was giddy when Ghetsis said he was planning to use Giovanni as a pawn, and also threatened to kill Lillie (or at least that's what I thought since he mentioned "if you value her life")

But yeah, it may not have lasted the longest, but I thought it was a pretty great challenge to have to fight the team leaders from universes where there was no protagonists to stop them. A great farewell to the handheld pokemon games.

I've been having considerable difficulty with the Totem Pokemon so far. I just beat Lurantis, and I had to spend a few hours grinding just to topple it.

I had to resort to using a Pyukumu and reviving it to beat one of them.

I think Marowak was the hardest for me, since I had an Ivysaur, Zorua, Hawlucha and Staryu and only Staryu could eat hits but not dish out any damage itself.

About to fight Olivia with an Alolan Persian, Furfrou, Arbok, Hariyama, Mawile, and Pa'u Style Oricorio.

Shiny Hariyama looks great:



Seven deaths.

Y'know what, Sun and Moon has really grown on me. I actually really appreciate all the stuff they've added in these games, makes for a much more involved and smoother experience.
So as it stands, from best gen to least best:
3 > 4 > 2 > 7 >5 >1 > 6

Such an awesome battle. Felt really appropriate to beat it with THE POWER OF LOVE.

I ended up ditching my Zoroark because I rarely got any good use out of it.


Also, does Poipole evolve by levelling up or is there a different method? I really don't want to look it up because I want it to be a surprise, just don't want to spend hours trying to figure out what to do with it

there's another method

Spoiler
you need to teach it a certain move

^- more of a hint than a spoiler

you probably won't guess it honestly

Speaking of Poipole

Spoiler
I'm fucking jealous of people in Ultra Space if it's a starter pokemon, first it means they don't follow the fire-water-grass triangle, but also Poipole is just real cool

Is there any hint in game to what it is?

Wait, it wasn't Fell Stinger was it... because I chose to not learn it..

I knew catching that Larvitar and barely using it until the end would pay off. Tyranitar is really putting in the work against the League, goddamn.

wound up dying, because i underestimated just how badly his shitty hasty nature crippled him defensively

'Bearing that in mind, to turn things more interesting, we created DexNav, showing the Pokémon that could appear in the area. It was one of the main reasons for implementing that functionality. However, it's not that interesting or useful if there is a great variety of Pokémon. In Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon there are many different kinds of Pokémon you can find, so we didn't implement the DexNav.'

The Alolan photo club is fun and all, but I really wish there was more room to arrange the Pokemon & trainer. (self.pokemon)

Something I noticed while trying to set up good shots for photos, there really isn't much room for rotating and moving around the subjects. Can barely move like half a centimeter before you get the popup telling you that the Pokemon can barely move, or won't be able to move at all.

Does anyone else find it really restrictive? At the moment it feels really limited with where you can place your Pokemon and it would be nice if you were actually able to move the trainer too.
Also Gamefreak, y u no hall of fame photo?

Current Ultra Sun nuzlocke team:

Alolan Persian
Pa'u Style Oricorio
Shiny Hariyama
Sylveon
Tsareena
[blank]

My Furfrou died to Guzma, and he was a major bro, so that bums me out. Currently considering doing something I've never done before: shiny hunt for a Smeargle. Since it's only available in one route, invoking shiny clause is the only way I can catch it, but since they made finding shinies so easy in this game anyway, I might just go for it. I've always wanted to use a Smeargle in a nuzlocke, and I don't really know how else to replace Furfrou.

I know Smeargle isn't very good in single player, and I already used one in Silver, but I don't care. I wanna use one in a generation that doesn't fucking cocktease me every time I find a useful move to teach it, since Sketch has (almost) zero limitations in Gen VII.

Found a shiny Smeargle after a mere 45 calls for help. Failed to catch it after it struggled itself to death.

that's the first shiny i've failed to catch in eleven years, since that wobbuffet i found in hoenn's safari zone

the hunt continues
