    I'm really enjoying the picnic method for shiny hunting, got 3 already today, 2 I was actually hunting and 1 that popped up randomly as I was resetting spawns, a Tadbulb and Glimmett that I hunted and a yungoos outta nowhere

    Yeah I was just hoping for a better world based one. I have my foreign ditto ready to masuda.
    Just using the Sparkling Sandwich lvl 3 power seems pretty crazy on the overworld

    Some move faster than others.

    Cyclizar, for example, can easily outpace you on foot, and can go as fast as your -raidon’s walking speed.

    And Varoom? Varoom is so fast he can easily keep pace with your -raidon even at a full sprint.
    Ceruledge is also a fast boi

    I don't even know where you get eggs from in this. Or how long sandwich buffs last.

    Specifically, it's the basket on the ground next to the picnic table, not the basket on the table itself.

    Put the two pokemon you want to breed in your party (I just bring the two, not sure if having more messes with anything or not), make a Jam sandwich for the level 1 egg buff (needs Jam + Strawberries + any pick, very easy and cheap), then afk for a while and occasionally check the basket to grab your eggs.

    Applin and Pineco, and maybe others are exclusive to trees. You have to boost your -raidon and hit a tree and sometimes a Poke will come out.

    Any Applin or Pineco you find one the ground will be imposters

    When you unlock boosting it tells you that hitting trees will knock pokemon out.

    I used it on a mixed sweeper Toxicity in SwSh and it's a solid item for sure. Skeledirge just makes super good use of it thanks to their signature move being sound based and already raising sp.atk by one stage.

    I don't understand freestyle sandwich making

    I'm trying to get humungo power Water.
    So I take Rice, which gives humungo power to Water among other things.
    Then I take lots of Cucumber since that boosts Water. Then Cream Cheese since that also boosts Water.

    But I end up with catching power water, encounter power fighting and humungo power normal

    Dear Uva Academy Director,

    I sent my child to your institution to receive an education. When my child returned she was Pokemon Champion, which is nice, but she also does not know what Math is. I will be bringing this issue up to the Paldea Board of Education at next week's meeting.

    Wild pokemon do seem to mostly be a good guide it seems. (You can see their level outside of battle if you hold zL to lock on like you were going to throw your pokemon to fight them).

    ...which is how I survived the pokemon center lady trying to get me killed when I asked where to go next and she tried to send me to an area full of level 50s while my party was around 30.

    Also, has anyone noticed that trainers seem to universally have weaker pokemon than the wild ones running around near them? Usually trainers are slightly higher than the nearby wild pokemon...

    If you talk to the lady at the Pokemon center and ask her where to go, she'll tell you exactly where you should go next and even mark your map.

    See the post above yours where she sent someone with level 30 pokemon to a level 50 area.

    She is trying to send me after the Earth Titan, who swept my entire party even with favorable matchups.

    Edit: Yeah, she sent me after the level 44 ground titan instead of the much more reasonable level 28 steel titan.

    Yeah, I haven’t played it but it sounds like they probably just tell you what’s in the area, which isn’t helpful in this instance.

    I’m surprised an in-universe level scanner isn’t a thing in Pokémon now. You can just pass it off as new tech. Put a marker down on the map, a ripple effect plays and then it just tells you what levels are in the area. Could have a cute call back to Dragonball where the trainer scans a person and realises they’re from the Elite 4.

    Her power level is in the f-f-fifties!

    ZL is your friend as someone else pointed out. The pokemon levels will generally tell you the level of the area. Its pretty simple. And in true open world ish game fashion if I was too low level for an area I explored a bit and then left knowing I at least got the tele point for later.

    Pretty sure nurse joy reccomends the closest badge to your location not level.
    Flew around the map and she would change her reccomendations to whatever was closer.

    Clearly after years of working at a Poke Center and seeing countless dumbass trainers Nurse Joy has grown bitter towards them. She has become so spiteful that she recommends destinations that are dangerous on the off chance the trainer will die in the attempt.

    It is almost the perfect crime.

    You can't ride Cyclizar or anything else in the game can you? It'd be neat but it seems unlikely.

    Surprise trading away all my spare Larvitar got me mostly garbage, but also a Ditto, a Quaxly, and a Dratini with 3 perfect IVs.

    So altogether a pretty good result?

    I keep stalling my progress by finding some neat new pokemon I want in my party, but because I’m Extra I have to do minor breeding/ev training/leveling up for a couple hours before getting back to whatever I was doing.

    Edit: Anyway that’s how I have a shiny Tadbulb, even tho I think the shiny evo is ugly.

    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!
