    Corsola is crazy difficult to find. Is there a super hard one in sword too?

    If anyone in shield has a spare Larvitar I would love to trade for one. Can send back a sword exclusive (expect the box legend, of course), or a random eevee or sobble baby, or a spare 5 perfect iv Drilbur from my first breeding project.

    If it helps Corsola aren't only random encounters, they sit out in the open. Their overworld form is not the same as their battle form. They are just unmoving white lumps sitting amongst the grass. Hard to spot.

    note also that people have determined there are dates you can set your switch's internal clock to in order to guarantee weather in all zones, if you decide to pokehunt with methods the jedi find...un nat ur al

    Fantastic, I'm on the hunt! No time changing for me though... At least not yet

    By the way everyone in here should add me/provide their switch codes. It's fun to see what everyone is doing (Didge!) and when y'all start raids I know you'll actually follow thorough

    I know that Switch joycons are notorious for experiencing drift.

    My controller seems to drift, but only on the Town Map screen, constantly panning down to the bottom.

    It doesn't drift in the overworld or during battles. Is this because the map screen is more sensitive? Or is this a game bug and not my joycons specifically? Anyone else experiencing this?

    toxtricity is the shit, this thing might be one of my favorites this gen

    also just to clarify since im still trying to burn through the story, I have to specifically catch a mon in a raid for it to be able to use gmax forms right? like my old snorlax and machamp that I already have can't do it once imported

    i think this might be my only complaint with the game then, that i cant just unlock it with some consumable item that costs a buttload of BP or something

    The weird thing is one of the raids gave me a gigantamax curry ingredient and I kind of assumed it was to just make an item/curry that would turn one of your normalmons into their gmax form?

    So I really enjoy that, unless I'm imagining things, that you can see other trainers going through the Gym challenges by paying attention to their numbers. And seem to have very shallow personalities types.

    Like gym 8 spoilers:
    There is this older gentlemen wearing a sweet hat that made it to this gym, but seems to have hit a brick wall with Raihan. I liked that little touch, considering I had seen him in other gyms and made a point to talk to him everytime I saw him.

    So do EVs affect stats in real time? Because I have a level 19 tyrogue that is one point off having balanced ATK/DEF, and I have been pumping muscle feathers into it but haven't been able to get its stat points to shift.

  • MaddocMaddoc I'm Bobbin Threadbare, are you my mother? Registered User regular
    In the past you'd need to level, which is why event Pokemon that came at level 100 could never be EV trained

    Dunno if that's still the case

    This changed in Gen 6. EVs should update constantly now.

    It's just that they have a reduced effect at level 20. Every 4 points bumps a stat up 1 at level 100 but it may take like 20 points for it to effect a stat at level 20.
