    Starting to regret not trying to Masuda it because at times Toxel just will not appear for minutes at a time

    Pokemon Go's doing a minor event specifically for The Video Game Awards, so maybe there will be some kind of Pokemon news?

    Most likely, they announced that there was some upcoming Pokemon news/events at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

    I have a spare Zarude code is anyone is caught short.
    It's a code from Europe, but it should work outside of there, as I used another one from the same source and it certainly did work.
    I now have the angry monkey thing and my living dex project moves one small step closer to completion.

    Yeah i'm always nervous about any event tied to that stupid newsletter because i rarely get it and i even triple checked to make sure it would be sent to me.

    No idea why we can't have easier to access events especially for something as significant as Zarude.

    Also i have 992 Scorbunnies now. Sitting in home so many scorbunny so many

    Well, if anyone else has missed out and is looking to get the code quickly, it is being destributed in Ireland via the gamestop website.
    You just need to sign up specifically to get pokemon code (they say it won't put you on their regular newsletter mailing list) before the 13th of December.

    go here

    And scroll to the bottom, enter your email and no need to tick the box.
    it should work.

    You'll get a confirmation email, and then at some point in the next week or so, they'll send you the code.

    For NA the pokemon trainer club newsletter. That literally had a 3 day cut off period between it being announced.

    Welp no email yet. Maybe the gamestop one will pay out. I got their worthless email sbout the twitch stream. So damn annoying

    My inbox was literally full of pokemon trainer club spam mail trying to sell me stuff but the actual Zarude email never came which is pretty on brand with that specific newsletter.

    Ended up getting one from a kind person who made a ton of dummy emails to get multiple codes so all's well that ends well i guess.

    Shoot!

    If anybody has a spare code, I’d love to have it- if the codes are still good through Christmas, I’ll use one as a gift for my niece.

    Can you trade Zarude through Home?

    So do you need the expac passes to connect Sword with Home? It's telling me it's an older version of the software and can't connect, but forcing the manual update option says Sword is up to date.

    If I have to pay another $60 just to fuckin' update Sword so I can use home that's some horseshit.

    So I wanna start making some eggs to get the last 45 pokemon bank says I need and Im fed up with gts. Are there any pokemon that people on here prefer ? I have a a max IV ditto and Ive gotten some lucky gts trades over the years so I can pump out pretty much anything with 4-5 perfect stats with minmal work. Also I know hyper training is a thing so Im not sure if thats as important anymore
    Notable potential parents
    Rotom( 5 perfect stats also Japanese so masuda method is in play)
    Tyranitar( 6)
    Speed boost Blaziken( in progress)
    Gardevior(5)
    Dragonite(5)
    Aromatisse( in progress)

    Hyper training is “expensive,” and the ‘mon has to be level 100 so yeah, people do still very much care about IVs.

    I have a complete ‘dex. If you’re missing anything that can be bred, post it here. Pretty sure the pokefam can provide.

    Most of what I need is locked out currently and my Bank transfer was missing a ton of my x/y and sumo dudes or it'd be like 17.

    The whole Zarude process has been a confusing pain.

    At any rate, someone was nice enough to give me a code, so I'll pay my code forward. Check your messages, @Brainiac 8 !

    Oh people arent getting the newsletter at all. Ive been subbed for like 10 odd years and they just stopped showing up sometime after X/Y according to my search. Like I'd get a random one here and there but none with codes for Pokemon

    me, replaying White: "fuck it, I've never really interacted with the status system before in single player, let's give it a try."

    So I get Lenora's Herdier to -5 attack with my Audino's Growl thanks to some lucky Take Down misses early on.

    Herdier crits three consecutive times to ignore the attack penalty and one-shot all the Pokemon I'd put any effort into levelling.

    I wonder why nobody bothers to interact with this system you've designed, Game Freak.

    In my experience, the only good moves like that are the ones like Swords Dance that give 2 or more boosts. Nasty Plot, Quiver Dance, Dragon Dance, moves like that tend to be worthwhile even in the story, because you can set up for a sweep. Moves that lower accuracy/ boost evasion can also be worth it if you can live long enough to spam them.

    Single stat drops/boosts are a waste of time. Drops in particular tend to be bad unless they're incidental (like from Intimidate) because at best you're only crippling a single Pokemon. I suggest instead you see about focusing on status conditions, like Toxic, Paralysis, and Confusion. Maybe throw in some entry hazards and Whirlwind or Roar.
