    Re: Pokemon Games Discussion Thread

    New Pokémon revealed yesterday for Sword and Shield.

    I need a Wooloo right now. Corviknight looks fantastic, as does Drednaw and the cover legendaries.

    Can't say I'm excited for Dynamax Pokémon. Just another throw shit at the wall idea like z moves and megas that will suck ass.

    The region and the game looks beautiful and I've already booked the week of the 15th November off for it.

    All I need is Corviknight and I'll be a happy boy. Dynamaxing thank goodness is limited to three turns and if I were to use it I would use it to turn the tide in a close battle.

    Re: Pokemon Games Discussion Thread

    So apparently you're unable to get all the Pokémon in your game. Not just that they aren't in the game and need to be traded across (like every other Pokémon game ever). Like they're not even going to be coded.

    I've complained about a lot of Pokémon decisions like mega evolution, z moves, nostalgic kanto wankfests, and stuff. This, if true, is the worst decision they could have ever made. Such lazy design choice for their big main console game.

    The entire concept of Pokémon is to catch them all. I have a full living dex of all the Pokémon in the games ready to be transferred and with this news they might not even be able to. What's the point?

    I never thought I'd second guess buying a mainline Pokémon game but this might just do it.

    Just an unbelievably shortsighted & quite frankly stupid decision. Who in the hell even dared to push it this far? I can't imagine this not getting changed & rectified after all the blowback.

    Re: Pokemon Sword and Shield

    This doesn't bother me at all as someone who rarely saves Pokes from previous adventures and even more rarely brings them into a new game.

    BUT I understand there are a lot of folks unlike me in this regard and that this is a pretty big deal for this franchise. Agreed that it's pretty short-sighted and honestly surprised they thought they could get away with this one. Probably too late to save it now but with enough outcry I wouldn't be shocked if they promise to get it patched in the few months following release to bring in all Pokes. Really dumb decision.

    I have Pokémon that I've had for around 14 years from RSE. I'd hate to think they might not be able to be transferred further. Especially after they said they wouldn't do that again between generations.

    Re: Pokemon Sword and Shield

    Tbh, I'm sympathetic with the company. They're only getting increasingly more Pokemon's with each generation and having to add every single one while accounting for changes in graphics and mechanics means some sacrifice had to be made: either what they did, or longer development time, or not as many improvements so that adding them all in is easier. It's honestly sort of absurd to think they'll be able to keep transferring Pokemon from generation to generation when that number is ballooning to a really ridiculous amount. I get the frustration but I imagine they went with what they felt was the best possible decision. It would be cool if they patch in more Pokemon over time though.

    I’m with Silk on this. I prefer to start fresh with each game, but understand others’ anger at this.

    When I saw the Trailer I was like HOLY..RED AND BLUE! A possible new film and then I see Mobile and I'm like nope. If anything it makes me want rewatch the Anime and go back to the beginning when Ash's Mother was packing him extra pairs of Underwear for his long journey he hasn't still become a Pokemon Master as of yet.

    James would be pissed off at what they did to Weezing in this Galarian form he has going for him. Zigzagoon's new look though I can dig it.

    Re: Pokemon Games Discussion Thread

    Love the Galarian Zigzagoon and evolutions, and glad they have evolved an old Mon.

    I love love love Morpeko. Straight in my team.

    Galarian Weezing reminds me of the Alolan forms that are fun to look at the first time but not something I'm really interested in.

    Re: Pokemon Sword and Shield

    The Zigzagoon line is awesome. Read somewhere that apparently these are the original forms and the Hoenn versions are variants, which I love. Dark/Normal will get destroyed by just about any fighting type though.

    Team Yell look awful and are my least favourite thing about what we have seen so far. I’m hoping that they’re not actually the bad guys and just follow this chick around (she might be the rival?).

    And I am ALL about that Weezing.

    Re: Pokemon Sword and Shield

    Not sure if anyone plays competitively, but Galarian Weezing will turn the entire game upside down, especially in VGC. His ability neutralises other abilities on the field.

    For those that don't know, there is a clear "Big Six" of VGC Pokemon. The four Tapus, Landorus-T, and Mega Kangaskhan. Incineroar is right up there too. No good VGC team these days doesn't have at least a few of these. All of them are heavily ability dependant: Lando-T and Incineroar have Intimidate, the best ability for doubles; M-Kanga has Parental Bond for stupidly powerful Seismic Tosses and breaking sturdy/sashes; and the Tapus have their terrain setting. With Weezing, all of those become - not useless, but far less viable.

    Well damn I wonder if they'll give those same gifts in the Trading Card League with Galarian Weezing. I might change my thoughts on him if that happens.

    Boom!

    Perhaps the happiest I've ever been about getting a shiny. Took about two hours to hunt this beauty (that's really great time for a shiny hunt), and I was so paranoid that when it popped up that it would be a male (the males can't evolve into Salazzle). It's one of the coolest looking shinies in the whole game and I'm so happy to grab it and for it to be a girl.

    I need a Galarian Ponyta right now.

    After a pretty down year with Sun and Moon in terms of designs, Sword and Shield already has some fantastic designs. Galarian Zigzagoon line, Galarian Ponyta, Wooloo, Corviknight, and Morpeko are fantastic designs so far.

    I was so hyped for S&S but I fell off hard. I don't even know if I'm getting it now. Maybe I'll wait until closer to Christmas to get a Switch on sale or something but until I saw this thread again I forgot it was even coming out.

    I have been sucked right back into the hype. I've got two weeks off when it comes out too, and a day 1 purchase. I just can't help myself.

    No matter how mad I am over Dexit, it's still a Pokémon game and I need it

    I think for me it's that I don't have a Switch lmao. So I haven't really been plugged into that world ready for it.

    And they announced RDR2 for PC in November so I'll probably be lost in that magnificent world again.
