    if anyone has a star sweet, or I guess an alcremie with a star sweet decoration, please, please trade it to me before I go insane

    I've got one. Well, three, actually. Give me your FC, I have friend requests disabled.

    Do you want anything in particular in return?

    I'm trying to get all 63 forms of Alcremie (deep sigh) so I'll take as many star decorated versions as possible if they're different body colours

    Well, if you've got uncommon Pokémon with egg moves and decent number of 31s, that'll do. I'll hop online.

    I'm sure I do but it would take me some time to actually sort through everything that I tossed into Home

    I definitely have some with egg/tutor moves from the gen 3/4 games in there somewhere, if you like we could trade for trash now and I'll dig up something better later?

    Sure. I set up the code 1337 8008

  • RamiRami Registered User regular
    Thanks, that has saved me literally hours of time

    I think at best the cram-o-matic must have a 2% chance of spitting out a star sweet

    NP. I probably got mine from one of those promotional G-Max raids.

  • RamiRami Registered User regular
    yo wait a sec

    doesn't Home give out a shiny Magearna if you complete the national dex?

    If that's still happening it actually would be useful to just touch trade the final 3 I'm missing: Diancie, Volcanion & Magearna

    It's not a shiny Magearna, it's the alternate forme. Still amounts to the same thing, being just a cooler looking color palette.

    Yay @RockinX
    Been missing you! Still have the Gengar you gave me (Guasona), it's up to Pokemon Sword now.

    Everybody thank @RockinX for his generosity over the years!
    The first, I believe, was my Perfect IV Shiny starmie nicknamed PSYKEDELIC. Or that's my favorite anyway, but there's perfect shiny metagross and perfect adamant/modest Dittos.
    All from many generations ago.
    I'd list them all but I'd have to pay for Nintendo Online again.

    I decided Solgaleo would be my next dynamax adventure hunt and 200 Successful raids in (and probably more fails.)

    All i feel is pain and regret.

    oh

    whoever created and designed the Raikou and Entei encounters in Soul Silver should be slapped with a trout.

    it's made to be as annoying as humanly possible. Not only they're roamers that you must approach by land or water (no Fly), they of course run away first round... if you use mean look, it barely lasts 3 rounds and they ALSO have Roar, anyway.
    i got both down to low yellow hp, but it's still too high to catch them even with Sleep and Duskballs at night, and every time i mean looked and slept them with a Gengar, as soon as I swap in any other pokemon to do a couple of weak hits and get them down to red, they either escape WHILE SLEEPING or wake up and use Roar.

    ha yeah I went through that shit last year when I started using Home and decided to transfer everything I could over from all my gen 3/4/5 games

    turns out there were a lot of legendaries I never bothered catching, and a lot of them were roamers

    thankfully i've got a Smeargle with block, false swipe and spore

    There is a good reason roaming encounters haven't come back. NO ONE liked them.

    @RockinX

    I've been slowly trying to label all of my Home-ies and so far the only thing that sticks out in legacy egg moves is a Clefable with Softboiled & Seismic Toss

    not exactly gold but you're welcome to have it

    You know, I think they could bring them back if they combined them with Sword and Shield's "you can see the Pokemon on the field" thing. Like, if you saw one of the legendary dogs running passed you and you had to chase it down/catch it to engage the fight. That could be fun.

    I think I may have that one already, haha. Don't worry about it. I wasn't going to use the thing anyway.

  • RamiRami Registered User regular
    I also just recently discovered if you want to use previous gen pokemon in sw/sh you have to wipe all of their moves and move memory anyway so legacy moves aren't even usable

    it's extremely annoying, primarily not knowing if this is going to become standard for future titles. If it is, then fine I guess wipe them and just go with what is available that gen. But if I wipe some legacy egg move from gen IV and then in gen IX they decide I don't have to wipe it anymore it's really going to sting

    That's only for ranked battles.

    well the two of the Dark versions Legendary Birds were kinda roamy, but they were fine
    problem with HGSS roamers is that not only they roamed randomly and moved away if you used fly, they would also ALWAYS try to run away and had extremely annoying movesets, that were designed to be as obnoxious as possible in those circumstances, particularly ROAR.

    one of the regular Platinum legendaries also had a horrible set, including Refresh and a self-heal. So it would keep removing paralysis (if you tried it) and refilling the HP.

    so much stuff in Gen4 feel like it was made to aggravate us. It's not a intelligence or raw power challenge.

    Lot of details that maybe haven't been mentioned before, or things that probably are no longer canon (but this book was official so it was canon at the time). There are a lot of references to the real world and real animals, suggesting originally Pokémon were something "extra" discovered in our world (this is also probably why the anime references real places and shows normal animals at times).

    Early on there was a suggestion pokemon came from space and Deoxys seems to be the end result of that. Gen 4 completely throws that out though

    Given what you can do with them, I don't think they could possibly be anything other than nanite swarms.

    I watched some gameplay videos, and it seems like an easy to start quick-play MOBA similar to HOTS. Just excited to play a new MOBA on my Switch featuring pokemans.

    Since it's coming out tomorrow and free to play I decided to preload it and I guess I'll see how it is. Hopefully it won't require micro transactions to fully enjoy.

    I wish I could be excited for Pokemon Unite but I just have zero interest in multiplayer-only stuff these days. That and fuck Tencent.

    Yeah, I forgot to mention they posted part 2 of this:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3YPqHwYRUw

    The thing that really fascinates me about this whole thing is that it seems like the early concept was that Pokemon takes place in *our* world (the real world) and Pokemon are just like some sort of new evolution of existing animals and stuff being discovered. This kind of explains the early seasons of the anime where it references stuff like Paris and Hollywood and other real-life stuff. I guess at some point (maybe around Ruby/Sapphire?) they sort of retconned that all out into Pokemon becoming it's own unique world and started making all these regions that were sorta kinda similar to real life places but not the same.
