    Nope, it's the tower where you fight his assistant before you go track down Rose.

    Oh right yes, that's right, the G-max Garbodor fight. Anyway, it's the Wyndon Tower.

    The starter you choose for HOME has its Hidden Ability. Nice to have Raindish Blastoise available to me right away.

    Great news, everyone! You can use Home to mass release things! You can release up to a box at a time.

    Edit: You can release up to 100 Pokemon, at which point it will prompt you to back out and save. Then you can go back and release more.

    Haha, already up to 3500/6000. There's catching challenges for Galar and Kanto in the Pokedex. Catch is you have to catch the specific Pokemon in the specific game to complete it. That Pidgey you've been dragging along since gen 3 won't cut it.

    ...and my 3DS Bank update is also taking forever. Why can’t mobile Home just log in to Bank?!

    Surprise trade has been kind, sending out tons of Squirtles and have gotten Bulbasaur and Litten in return so far.

  • KandenKanden Registered User regular
    I completed the Galar challenges in the Pokedex part of the switch side of home. Didn't seem to do anything.

  • akjakakjak Spooky GymRegistered User regular
    I thought I’d cleaned out all my games to Bank, but I know I had both Celebi and Shaymin but they’re not in Home. Weird.

    Did they do the thing where Bank was free for a bit so people can transfer old stuff? Because I never really had Bank but I might hit it for a bit to get some of my old favorites back.

    Also, do we know yet if Home in one switch with multiple profiles lets you move pokemon between those different profiles? Cause I'd love to be able to use it to give pokemon to my little sister.

    Steam ID: Right here.
  • CruorCruor Registered User regular
    Bank is free for the next month or so I believe.

    Yay. Get to bring over my shiny Gengar, Onix, Pichu, Gyrados, and Braviary. And the crap ton of legendaries I gathered over the years of Gamestop giveaways. Shiny dogs!

    I guess I now have some shiny stuff to trade for ones that I want. Do I keep breeding for a shiny Sylveon or try and trade for a HA one? AH!

    I wasn't actively avoiding trading, but now I will for awhile. I haven't done surprise trades since before people started hacking stuff in. Guess we don't need to surprise trade right now with Home letting us transfer mons.

    Is trading through Home OK?

    so, guys, can anyone hook me up with those Shield exclusive Gigantamax now? It's even easier with Home!

    Oh, and you can use the touch screen for almost all things in Home on the switch, like box selecting a bunch of mons. I always dreamed of doing that, so much faster.

    If you mean from this list:
    Anyone with Shield wanna trade some Gigamax formes? I got a spare Grimmsnarl, Kingler and Amped Toxtricity, and would love an Orbeetle, Harterene and low key Toxtricity

    Only the Toxtricity is a Shield exclusive. The rest aren't.

    Think I'll wait until Crown Tundra comes out to get Home. Then I'll be able to transfer all my legendaries over.

    No, this is not about regular version exclusives, this is Gigantamax Forme in Max Raid Dens. I mean the Toxtricity Low Key, Orbeetle and Hatterene Gigantamax formes can only be found in Shield, and the Toxtricity Amped, Grimmsnarl and Kingler Gigantamax formes can only be found in Sword. Everyone gets special Milceries that evolve into Gigantamax Alcremies and special sweets. This is the latest Wild Area News bulletin.

    Those are the promoted pools. They're still available normally in the normal (rare) raid dens. eg GMax Orbeetle is in this den in both Sword and Shield.
    https://www.serebii.net/swordshield/maxraidbattles/den92.shtml

    There's no difference between those and the ones in the promoted pool, except that the promoted pool ones spawn more frequently and at a lower difficulty level (so worse IVs too).

    oooh, that's amazing, thanks!
    the way I play it's much easier to do a trade, though.
