    I finally found a drake fossil and decided to grab a Dracovish since I could use an additional water type in the rather large line up of Pokemon I swap in and out of in my playthrough. I figured I would reset until I got a helpful nature. Except first one that popped out was a shiny! ...Unfortunately with a nature that lowers attack and water absorb. Suppose I'll fix that eventually though? Guess I'm gonna grind up another drake fossil.

    Wow, the shiny hunters would be incredibly jealous of you! :P I think there's someone here who was trying to get one too?

    100BP to fix up a shiny is totes worth it, imo

    I was surprised, took me a minute to register why it was gray. Previously aside from Gyrados (and Magikarp with the recent event) my random shiny pokemon have been a Zubat in Gen 3, a Zubat in Gen 6, and... a Cubone in Gen 7 that I loved dearly and built a trick room team around for the battle... uh... whatever it was that gen.

    Debating if I want to keep grinding for another so I can have one with a more useful nature and ability since I'm not post game yet.

    My daughter picked Grookey and immediately regretted it once he turned into Thwackey.

    No matter your stance on Thwackey I think we can all agree what is up with that sprite

    no I think it's a rite of passage to have one of your favorite pokemon evolve into something you hate

    Being able to alter natures and IVs is an amazing thing and I cannot wait to get my old pal shiny Kingler to sword and shield.

    Prepares you for a life where you spend thousands of hours and substantial cash to get into a career field that you think you'll love, only to discover that the hours of training and years of debt have drained any love for the subject you might once have felt.
    But, you keep trudging on hoping that maybe the next evolution will be a bad ass gorilla with a massive drum set.

    One question I have for this - when it says Hyper Trained! on the stat, that doesn't have any mechanical difference from a natural Best, right? It just means that if I were to breed it, it would not pass the IV down?

    Correct. It makes it only makes it a 31 fer fightin. As far as I can tell ability capsule is the only modification that actually modifies the Mon. The nature mints don't actually change the natures which can mess you up if you use the berries that heal or confuse based on nature

    I wish I could hit B and re-pick my raid mon if I accidentally pick one.

    man, this is the first pokemon game that's making me want to try and put together a competitive team. but i am also so incredibly intimidated to even try real fights, there's like 20 years of vocabulary/tactics that I do not know at all

    Try using some rental teams for a bit. I feel like there's less pressure to win when you're borrowing a team. And don't worry too hard about strategies, just try and guess what type move they will do and switch. You can't predict every crazy strategy but whatever.

    Oh so the previous tcg news of fairy no longer being typed they're also adding a new frame element and will slowly phase out uh every old set that isn't sword and shield

    So if ya wanna roll for some cool gx card art the sun and moon elite trainer boxes should be heavily discounted at Walmart now since they seem to be pushing the new set hardish

    You may notice that cards from the Sword & Shield Series have a white box containing a letter in the bottom-left corner (for example, all cards in the Sword & Shield expansion have a “D” mark). This is called a regulation mark, and it will be used in the future to determine which cards are legal to use in tournament play. For example, there might be a point in time when only cards with a “D” regulation mark can be used in the Standard format. This change will get more attention in the future, but for now, just take note that it's there.

    literally will only matter if you play standard, its the set marking from magic really they just haven't used something so noticable before? I dunno its just with the fairy and weakness changes they are probably gonna reprint stuff
