    Okay but also the entirety of this "health care" involves plunking balls into a magic machine that does all the healing automatically. Nurse Joy is like 2 steps below a pharmacist. I'd wager a barista could do the job in a pinch. As a matter of fact, there's several instances in the games where you find one of those machines unattended and can use it yourself, an untrained 10 year old child.

    Literally a very uncomplicated robot arm could do her job.

    Since you don't have to pay for it yourself I am forced to assume it is a Public Service, which means it is funded by tax money. Tax payers are paying the salary of a person whose only job is to take Poke balls, turn around, place them in a machine, take them out, turn around and hand them back.

    That is outrageous and I will be writing to my congressman.

    edit- Another awful alternative is that the Big Poke Company has a Govt contract to provide this service and are employing people in nonsense roles to pad their expense accounts so Execs can buy a second beach home in Alola.

    Fairy type Delphox is the next 7 star. Wonder what the strat will be, stab flamethrower will cover steel, and stab psychic will cover poison, so those are probably out. Could be tricky

    Skuntank and Alolan Muk get poison stab and are immune to Psychic, so they're decent choices.

    The worst part is that you don't even have a back wall. Customers could want your attention from two opposite directions. There could even be two entirely separate lines, both of which you have to somehow serve at the same time.

    You can also ask Nurse Joy for advice on where to go next, but she prioritizes nearby options and may also be secretly trying to kill you given some of the recommendations I've seen her make, so take her advice with a grain of salt.

    If I had to work in the same environment she does, I'd probably treat my own customers the same way. It feels like Pokemon centers went from being a potentially great place to work to being a living hell, at least for someone like me.

    They at least mention that they get paid in this one (the League covers the costs for students), so that's a step up from most of the games.

    I absolutely have a spare Scorbunny. If you have Home I can trade it anytime, or we can figure out what time to get on Shield

    Of course there's always a catch when it comes to Pokemon. Why we can't just setup a trade without having to both be online at the exact time is beyond me.

    35 minutes is a bit, I'm expecting dates and a little bit more info on the SV DLC, and baselessly holding out for old games on the Switch Online service.

    Maybe a first teaser for a new spinoff for late next year? Either a new Let's Go or Pokemon Legends game would be nice

    I'm very much hoping for another Legends style game announcement.

    Also kind of hoping for a Switch port of Detective Pikachu 1.

    As far as Scarlet Violet goes:
    First DLC comes out Sep 13, showed some new Paradox and Regional forms
    Free Mew Code is live now GETY0URMEW
    7- Star Mewtwo raid is coming in a few weeks

    Pokemon Stadium 2 and Pokemon TCG game are coming to the Switch Online service today

    Other stuff for Unite and Cafe Mix and the Anime that I didn't really pay attention to.

    Oh also there's a full trailer for Detective Pikachu 2

    There was basically nothing super interesting other than some more info on the DLC and that Mew code. I guess they announced a new Paldea youtube anime series but that was like the only actual "new" project they announced (edit: I guess there was also some anime series centered on the TCG but.. eh...). Everything else was kinda elaborating on stuff we already knew about.

    But yeah, the majority of it was more TCG/Cafe Remix/Pokemon Go/Unite/Masters EX, etc garbage that always clogs these. The trailers were cool for Detective Pikachu and the DLC but nothing super revolutionary there (they did show a couple new pokemon coming in the DLC including new evos for Applin and Duraludon and two new paradox pokemon)

    The Mew/Mewtwo thing might have been cooler if it wasn't leaked months ago and then super duper reaffirmed days ago when it was leaked it was gonna be in this presents :P

    Edit: The DLC does look really cool though. A little sad at no Detective Pikachu 1 port announcement.

    There's actually no new regional forms announced, just Paradox forms (Cobalion future Paradox named Iron Crown, and Raikou past Paradox named Raging Bolt) and new evolutions for Applin (Dipplin, styled after a candy apple) and Duraludon (Archaludon, styled after a suspension bridge, looks pretty cool).

    The Indigo Disk also showed off a new flight power for your riding Pokemon, which is was mentioned to be temporary for a minigame with the potential to unlock it fully later on.

    New Scarlet / Violet trailer was released at the end of Worlds
    Looks like all past starter Pokemon will be catchable in the wild in The Indigo Disk?
    Also some new moves and names for the new Paradox mons
    Also the most exciting part
    Smeargle! - is on the Switch finally
    I think everything else in the video was already known

    I think if Iron Valiant had been a Scarlet Paradox pokemon, then I think that'd be the perfect game for me. I do think it has the coolest name, but it's damaged heavily by all the other paradox futures also having "Iron" in their name wtf.

    So anyway yeah make it an ancient paradox pokemon instead and I'm Scarlet 4 Lyfe

    New Pokemon information coming tomorrow morning at 9AM EST. It's gonna be a "haunting, harrowing tale about a Pokemon from Kitakami (the region for the Teal Mask)." This makes me think it's a new regional form, and I'm excited to see who it could be. My hope of hopes is Mawile, who I feel would fit the whole aesthetic of the region and also the teaser image (spoiler for size):

    There's been some hints about this
    that it's a regional Sinistea - they gave promotional tea sets to some press/ influencers at the VGC Worlds competition and when they tweeted the info above it had a green tea emoji 🍵 attached

    May not be what it is, but that's kind of what they've been hinting at

    Ah, I didn't know that bit. Yeah,
    regional Sinistea
    sounds right then.

    Although, a regional Mawile that's based on a
    tea ceremony maiden
    would also fit that hint and be cool as hell.

    I finally finished my Home Pokedex, all I needed was a Diancie which hasn't been available in the US for 8 years.

    Did I pay $15 for a Pokemon Go event ticket? Yeah but it was worth it to finally have a complete Dex and get a Diancie and the Original Color Magearna reward for completing it in Home.

    Now I just have to wait for the regret of paying for the Poke Go ticket when the first Scarlet & Violet DLC event is inevitably a Diancie
