    Golly but the female Dragon Tamers have a bad case of Dreamworks Smirk.

    dragon tamers are such smug dudes talking about how hard it is to raise dragon types and it's like y'all they're so common in this region you use them as bicycles

    You can't really call yourself a Pokemon trainer until you've raised Dragon types. Why Cici and I were on holiday at our chateau in Kalos, have you ever been? You really must! There we picked up the most darling Dratini. Kalos dragons you see are of superior breeding to the common herd you'll find elsewhere. Proper pedirgree is a must!

    Cool story. I have a trash bag, toxic waste pile and this bug that has a mushroom infestation. Wanna touch it?

    Have you seen this goblin with paint all over his claws? He’s absolutely feral and he WILL bite you. Also it seems like he might have fleas.

    Co-op doesn't work how I expected. I joined a Violet game but still see Scarlet-exclusive pokemon. I also can't help with Team Star fights or trainer battles or anything.

    Oh no, I've become too friendly with my team

    They've starting toughing it out, dodging attacks and landing extra crits

    ... does that actually happen in Scarlet and Violet? I legit thought they removed it because I haven't seen it, even from my starter. I guess I've just been rotating my team (and not using my starter) too much to hit that point.

    And yeah

    Between friend boosts, always-on EXP Share, and always-on switch prompts, the game feels easier in moment-to-moment battles than ever. I don’t get why they’d take out the option to turn off some of these features; that’s been a thing for the longest time.

    Yeah, it's tied to picnics or making sandwiches

    Happened to me because I was experimenting with sandwiches

    Ah, so that's why they haven't happened to me, I don't really do the sandwich thing.

    Really, I've been having to pay enough attention. Also, (spoilers for the Titans questline)
    Arven absolutely kicked my behind after the fifth titan, in the lab visit. I got there at like level 48 highest with a slot or two on training guys and the man is packing level 60 mons. The fuck you mean you're weak at battling, Arven, you could literally waltz up to any previous Champion save Cynthia and Leon and turn them into a splatter on the ground without effort.

    Haven't seen this discussed yet: they actually removed the Hail weather effect entirely and replaced it with Snow. Snow raises the Defense of Ice-types by 50% and activates all Abilities and move effects that Hail did.

    Competitively, I think this makes Snow a much more viable weather to set. Three of Ice's too-many weaknesses are primarily physical, so they appreciate the damage reduction, and Aurora Veil becomes a much more viable Reflect/Light Screen replacement when you don't have to chip damage your own team to set it up.

    Speaking of Ice's type matchups, this wouldn't bring it anywhere near viability, but I think it should resist Normal. Like Rock and Steel, solid Ice is something that isn't very comfortable to slap, shove, or scratch at.

    The final fights of the star/titans lines were both great.

    I’ve just to put some effort into the league. I got through 2 on my first attempt before dying and then finished the other two lines so I’m probably up a few levels from last time

    I felt called out by the champion fight as we shared four of the same pokemon.

    Oh this is interesting, I caught a Vivillion and it's the fancy pattern.

    Fancy & pokeball patterns were the two special, event only patterns that were largely unobtainable by anyone (especially pokeball). I assumed SV would be region specific as usual, but they seem to have made it fancy pattern only for everyone.

    Hopefully they give away the pokeball pattern so I can finally have all 20 patterns.

    I heard fancy is the only one available in SV too.

    If so, thats pretty lame.

    Going back to the old way for EV training feels weird, but at least they make it easy to get multiple power items at once.

    Though they did change the -ev berries, first one used no longer reduces max EVs all the way to 100 (so you need 26 berries to fully zero out a stat that's maxed out).

    No pokerus either.

    Not sure why they're making ev training harder while making everything else easier.

    So far, most of the way through the three paths... Arven is easily the best of them, Nemona is dead last. (As a person, I mean. I'm enjoying scenes with Nemona but she is completely obsessed)

    Thats enough for a few pokemon (about 260 each I think) but the amount of casual traveling I'll be doing once I finished the pokedex would be minimal. It would turn into a lot of grinding to get those.

    Nemona has some really good postgame scenes that are locked behind completing all 3 main stories.

    Easily my favorite character in the series though, she's great

    I rather empathize with Nemona because I'm a board game player. Having nobody to play a game you desperately love with, does things to a person.

    What Nemona is with pokemon battling I'm basically with BattleCON :P.

    I'm looking to trade for the Scarlet exclusives, specifically the Larvitar and Deino line. I've got all the Violet exclusives besides the evolved power ranger guy, if that sweetens the pot.

    Also either of the non-fuecoco starters wouldn't be terrible. If anyone's got a few minutes this afternoon, feel free to shoot me a DM!

    I've had some success lately with shiny hunting mass outbreaks. So far I've gotten a shiny Flittle (Espathra's shiny is a goth psychic ostrich) and a shiny Noivern. It is so easy to change almost everything about a Pokemon to make it competitive ready, which means these shinies could very well see use outside of just being part of my collection.

    Man, can we have this gym challenge format for the series going forward? It’s so neat to have each gym be a unique puzzle or side quest.
