Pokémon! What are they? I mean they're not quite porks, but they're not quite lemons either.



Pokémon is a series of video games for people aged children and upwards. In these games, your mission is to journey across the world, meeting strange and beautiful creatures (the titular Pokémon) while viciously bludgeoning said creatures into a state of blind subservience to your will and yours alone. This condition is known in the pokéverse as "friendship."

The latest edition of Pokémon, Sword and Shield, released on November 15th, and contains 400 of these innocent beings with the apparent intelligence of a human toddler. So many chances to attain ultimate power! So many new kinds of pain to inflict and, in your quieter moments, feel!

Anyway my favourite Pokémon is Ninetails because it is graceful and floofy but also destroys everything in its path

and I'm just like, yes. Finally.

Finally.

    I just scooped up a Fire Stone and evolved my Vulpix and now I too have a Ninetails!

    Still trying to figure out if Poke Jobs is really worth it vs just playing raids for candy

    I don't actually have one yet, sadly. Vulpix/Ninetails is one of those mons that stops learning moves when it evolves, and my self-imposed rule is not to evolve them until after they've learned all their moves, or at least all their good ones. And Vulpix is a bit of a glass cannon so it's mostly getting share xp for now.

    Wonder trading has allowed me to fill out my dex very nicely.

    The only thing I need for all the Galar Pokemon is a fish and a drake fossil.

    And the Legendaries but eh.

    This does not have to be a problem unless you irrationally refuse to use TMs like I do.

    Someone surprise trade sent me a lvl1 drewpy from Japan, I threw it in a box then hit up the next den raid and the leader was using dragapault and I hadn't seen one before and then I immediately filled that drewpy with candy and haven't let it out of my sight since

    I got a Japanese Ditto from secret trade so that's good. I haven't encountered them myself yet.

    I also now have TWO Alcremie types: vanilla cream and lemon cream. I managed to get every Vivillon so I am determined to get every Alcremie.

    someone mentioned in the last thread, you can take it to the move relearner and put fire blast, flamethrower, and extrasensory on it right after evolving

    I've heard you can find them on the island in the Wild Area with Dittos, which you need to be able to cross water to get to

    I managed to get a Sliggo in a raid

    I have realized that my current team in Sword is almost all quite fragile. At gym 3 now and I've managed to keep myself from getting too overleveled by running from most wild battles.
    Raboot, Barraskewda, Bolthund, Corvisquire, and Roselia all take hits very poorly. Togetic, my sixth, is decently tanky and will be even better after it evolves, but it's still catching up in level.

    Since I'm playing on Set I can't get free swaps in battles, so I need some more beef on my team. I usually pick a tanky water type but the only new one I've found that might fit is Drednaw, which for whatever reason I'm just not feeling.

    I'm avoiding spoilers, but are there any other bulky water-type options for me in the new Pokemon? If not, I know I have options from older gens. Picked up a Wimpod last night and I've never used Golisopod before, and I remember seeing Milotic in previews so I could look around for a Feebas. But I'd like to have something to take in to this Fire Gym, and those are both longer-term investments.

  • TurambarTurambar Avocado at law Registered User regular
    Drednaw might fit your bill. Evolves from Chewtle

    Yeah, as I mentioned I'm not a fan of the design for whatever reason. If I can't get anything else I might pull one in for now with the intention to swap it later.

  • Blackbeard7Blackbeard7 Registered User regular
    i think you can get a wooper/quagsire in the first wild area?

    Oh, missed that part

    Not many other new water types, apart from Barraskewda line and Cramorant and the starter

    Oh and two of the fossils, but they might not be your deal

    I had Obstagoon but as I was mostly using them for Pickup I set them aside


    I need to add cute ones! I'm thinking an Alcremie or a Rapidash? I've juuuuust hit the woods so the latter wasn't an option yet. And I'm reluctant to pull the trigger on the former because I haven't started my Alcremie breeding. But I also want that steel/dragon although it only increases the Edgelord rating

    Can I also say that in terms of QOL it's wonderous that you can now rejig a full team to put in an egg/put the egg or a 'mon in the box, right from talking to the nursery worker. Or choosing a 'mon to breed from the box. That is going to save so much time I have probably lost at least an hour of my life trying to talk to them when my team was full, running back to the PC, etc. Especially in swapping who was at the nursery!

    if a Pokemon has a Gigantamax form in its unevolved stage, does it also get one when when it evolves?

    Is there a way to tell if something has a gigantamax form? I know my meowth does from the gift version but don't know how to see it.

    It's there ever a reason not to just pop dynamax at the start of raids since you get a free one?

    Is there a good printable chart showing elemental weaknesses, and also how they combine, because some of it is non intuitive.

    Rolling up to Wyndon, hopefully will close out the story tonight. (Found the 2% spawn Stonejourner almost immediately but accidentally killed it, remembering right after I attacked that it has 20!! special defense ;_;)

    Here's the team as it stands:
    Leon the Intelleon
    Alisandra the Alcremie (the most basic one, I think strawberry vanilla? The one you get for a daytime short clockwise spin)
    jaaskiTrans the Hatterene
    Britney the Toxtricity
    Applejack the Flapple
    Trebuchette the Dragapult (got it at lvl 45 bc I got it from someone else's raid before the 6th gym lmao)

    Britney is just rejoining the team after using Bear Grills the Stunfisk for the last few gyms, I felt like I needed better electric coverage than a random t-bolt on Trebuchette. And she still covers fairie, so that's good.

    GMax is indicated by a red X shape at the top of the screen when looking at a Pokemon in the box. Only Pokemon who are caught GMaxed in raids will have the ability.

    Your raid team only gets one DMax for the whole team, so it should probably go to the strongest member.

    The advanced raid strat is to try and gauge in what order your mons will go in to determine when to use it. The ideal is every max attack taking off two bars of shield while all the other tiny mon do the real damage.

    But also just ripping it off turn 1 will get the job done 90% of the time.

    Ah, that's me right now cause I've just been doing random trainers. No point waiting 3 minutes for it to fail to find people for a fight I can win in 1-2 rounds mostly solo.

    Presumably at some point they get harder and require actual humans? Also is that 1 dynamax at any given time (makes sense given the size) or one dynamax per team fight?

    One dynamax per team fight. When you first unlock 4 stars you'll probably need help; eventually 4 stars will be soloable, but as far as I can tell 5 stars are impossible because the AI just dies too quickly.
