More info

"Q: Now that these games are on Nintendo Switch, it's possible for multiple accounts to use the same device. Can multiple people play the same game? Or will it be similar to the handheld games where you can have only one player per game?

Mr. Ohmori: You can have multiple accounts on the Nintendo Switch, so each account can have its own save file. For example, if you have siblings they can play on their own accounts."

So still one save file?

They've said that features from Gen 6/7 will be returning for the new games. If that abortion of a mechanic, Festival Plaza returns I'm going to be steering way off.

What tilts me most about Festival Plaza is that all my friends will defend this mechaic with their lives and claim that it's substantial new content.
Like when I first told them about how unimpressed I was with Sun and Moon it was the first thing they pointed to in the game's defense.

This actualy makes me more mad than even playing Dark Souls III does

There's nothing good about bullshit minigames that get in the way of the convenience of having an easily accessible multiplayer menu that you didn't have to sit through loading screens to use...

Are players just dumber today? Weren't we able to figure it out and manage just fine? I dunno.

In the demo they had put Oddish in Viridian Forest.

Still bad though, if anything they should have made it that you need a super effective move against Rock as Pikachu has double kick now, and assuming Mankey/Nidorans are still where they are and Eevee also gets a move that can beat rock it would have been easy to have and not necessarily as forced.

If it sells well and attracts more fans to the series, is there a risk of them dumbing down the main series as a result?

I'd count on it. The games are pretty much visual novels at this point for all it's worth.

Of all the complaints I've been, people not liking Pikachu getting double kick is kind of ridiculous. Did anyone care that Charmander got Metal Claw in FRLG?

That's probably one of cooler changes tbh (even though it even further nullifies the point of forcing you to catch a Grass or Water-type...)

All done: completed the Living Dex with my girlfriend this weekend. I now have a save file with every single pokemon organized numerically. Includes every form of every evolutionary line (so not just getting a charmandar and evolving it into charizard, but having an individual charmander, charmeleon and charizard) as well as all the legendary / mythical / event pokemon #1-721 (including the likes of Volcanion, Meloetta, Genesect...). All obtained legit, got maybe 1 or 2 through online trades (if any at all). Also includes around 150+ shiny pokemon. A bunch of them are fakes gotten through (wonder)trades but dozens of them are as legit as can be.

Now on to pokemon Sun. I pushed past the first island and, if I ignore all the obnoxious anime-tier stuff and horrible interactions, the game isn't too bad.

i was talking to my friend the other day and he asked what the next games' subtitles would be

ya know, first we had colors, then minerals/jewels, back to colors, letters, then celestial objects

i remember the rumors a few months ago about the next games just being called 0 and 1

i really dont know what they could do next

then i tried again with y but yet again i failed

at least i finished the whole pokedex in y, so im happy about that

it doesn't count unless they all have competitive builds, though

i've made numerous attempts at completing a living dex in the past, but when you start obliging me to move my ass over to a gamestop several hours away to ask some snotty apathetic employee for a fucking magearna or whatever the fuck, just to drive all the way back because i'm not getting literally anything else, you are asking WAY too much of me

It helps a lot if you organize your boxes numerically. Your first box becomes 1-30 to house the first few dozen (starting with bulbasaur, ivysaur...), box two becomes 31-60 and so on. Makes it easy to keep an overview of the pokemon you have and to fill in the gaps. I'll post a pic or two of mine in a bit.

Sun and Moon definitely improved some things (HMs being incorporated in the pokemon ranger riding thing rather than having to use a pokemon's slot for the move, the real-time map...) but others are really downgrades. The call for help mechanic is fun for the totems but can be really obnoxious otherwise. The Z moves are pretty lame (since you have to make a pokemon hold the item for it), take forever and are just dumb to the point that I've only used a single one in the 15 hours I've played. It's also stupid to play against. Pokemon gym girl switches to her final pokemon, goes first with the Z move and kills one of mine who was almost at full health despite the move not being very effective. It's dumb. Also, there's several points in the game where it feels lame that your pokemon aren't healed automatically. Of course, you don't want the game to be easy and there shouldn't just be free heals in between trainers or endurance sections of the game, but it's happened a few times that I beat a major trainer (who's friendly) close to a pokemon center, carried on assuming my pokemon would've been healed because there was no reason for them not to be, and then discovered that I had to go take a 2 minute detour to a pokemon center.

Just the little things, you know?

Damn. Failed again. Some have competitive builds (even trained some 6 IV Dratinis with good moves and stuff like that) but don't care too much about the battling side of things.

Most event pokemon were pretty low effort. I don't have Magearna because it's a sun/moon one but the others weren't too bad. Almost all of the events were online (just connect to wi-fi and go to mystery gift) and the few that weren't just required you to connect to the network of a game store. Which still isn't great but you don't have to interact with anyone. And there's always the trading network if you're looking to fill in the gaps.

yeah, i didn't use z-moves at all for my first playthrough for the same reasons

i've since discovered that there are ways to make them interesting, though—you can use a z-crystal to power-up non-damaging moves, too, like work up, and it'll give you an extra attack boost

my favorite of the ones i've found is Z-Conversion, which a porygon can use to change its type into whatever the first move on the attack list is (in my case, shadow ball) while also boosting every one of its stats by a level, which is pretty fucking dope if you ask me

there's also Z-Parting Shot, which does the normal effect of lowering your opponent's stats and switching out, but this time it fully heals the pokémon you're switching to

among others

I almost forgot how awful the GTS is. Ah, so you're looking for (completely ordinary pokemon)? Here's 15 people asking legendary and mythical pokemon for it, 10 people who want a level 91+ Milotic / Dragonite / Salamence, and 5 people who think they're hilarious by asking for an impossible pokemon (female Volcanion level 10 or below). A+ experience right there.

It's also horrible design that you can't look for pokemon that others want. It baffles me that they still haven't put this in after having the GTS around for like 4 games or so. "I want to trade my X. Show me all offers from people who want one." It would improve the whole process so much.
