The little crystal turtle [Pokémon] is pretty cute.

    I'm hoping they will Tera raid the exclusives eventually but then they never did with miraidon/koraidon so maybe not.
    Also don't love that walking wake and iron leaves are raid only. But at least they finally got dex entries.

    Finally finished here, just 8 Pokémon to go for Indigo dex. Two of the starter lines I haven't been able to find in the terrarium yet and the 2 violet paradox exclusives.

    We back!

    Violet report: Titans and Starfall completed, all eight Gyms down. Passed all my finals and just going through the final teacher stories before I hit the Elite Four.

    Was hoping I could get some more Herba Mystica from the Titan sites. Guess I gotta do 4* and 5* Tera Raids tho?

    I beat the first of the bb elite four the other day and managed to catch both paradox raids before they ended but haven’t played much since then.

    The one big thing I haven't liked about Violet is that it is so slow. Held item procs, multi-hit attacks... There really needs to be a "Just get it over with" battle speed option.

    You can’t have Marshadow in S/V anyway, much sad as she’s my favorite.

    I’m trying to finish up the DLC, and angy about this bullshit:
    You mean to tell me I have to fish this dragon asshole with some trash I picked up on the street? I spend a LOT of time breeding and EV training, and now it’s gonna take me like 10 hours to get ready for this last elite four battle. UGH!

    About that Elite 4 member that might help
    You only have to do his "challenge" with new Pokes, you can do the battle with him using your regular team.

    His 3 challengers are pretty easy, I caught a high level team and didn't train them at all and found them pretty easy

    That challenge was mostly annoying to me cos
    it doesn't consider tera raid pokemon as being caught in the terrarium! I grabbed a team I thought would be cool, threw some TMs on them, but then it wouldn't let me compete with them.
    But, yeah, it's not actually as annoying as they make it sound, you can kinda just catch whatever and you'll be good.

    Okay, to grind out the legendaries in the Scarlet/Violet DLC, you HAVE to do BBQs in a group? And there's still no way to group up with randos? Just goddamn.

    So I went to Reddit and found a group. And the first group BBQ we got was - work together to make a four-star sandwich. Which none of us knew how to coordinate.

    That just broke me. I'm done.

    Yeah... the group quests are tricky without communication for some of them. Honestly, everything about them is a screwup I feel.

    Is the game locked to clear skies between beating the last Gym and challenging the E4? I don't think I've had any rain in over three real time days.

    How's a guy supposed to evolve a Sliggoo around here?

    EDIT: Three new Mystery Gifts. SUPEREFFECT1VE for an Expert Belt, G0TCHAP0KEM0N for thirty Quick Balls and Check For Gifts to get ten TM233 Metal Sound.

    God, why is the GTS in Home such a shitshow? I searched for something pretty common, but I wanted to see if anyone had one in an apriball. Even common-ass normal pokemon in normal balls and everyone wants a Pharaoh trim Furfrou. LOL gtfo.

    Bad luck. Most of them are pretty easy. If it'll help, I can send you a link to a Discord server where people form rooms for BBQ groups.

    Any kind soul with Legends want to take my Ursaring and make it an Ursaluna for me? I can give you any number of good things, including 4+ IV moon ball Teddiursas I made for this purpose.

    Can also the regular paradox ‘mons from both versions.

    Pipe dream would be two of them so my kiddo can have one too.

    Y'all remember how I posted that battle strategy that relies on using guaranteed-crit moves to set off Anger Point?

    You know what I discovered? Those friendship events that block incoming enemy attacks also work on attacks you direct at your own allies.

    Real hilarious when I successfully warn Tauros about the incoming attack I directed Meowscarada to make! :lol:

    My favorite musical instrument is the air-raid siren.

    I may have overlevelled my Skeledirge and Pawmot a bit because I just about swept the Elite Four and La Primera.

    ...Time to get my butt handed to me by Nemona!

    EDIT:

    * Champion Nemona defeat'd, we are now bestest friends forever.
    * Yes it started raining again. Goodra cavalry has arrived, late as always.
    * Just now descending into Area Zero but the tension is delicious. Hope it'll last!

    * Having a hard time finding the last few stakes for the Ruinous Four. Would appreciate some Dowser/Itemfinder functionality. I did manage to get the super cute goldfish (OF CALAMITY) though!
    * Probably gonna let the experience stew a bit before I do the Gym Inspections and grab the Secret Treasure DLC.

    Sorry for the tripple poast but sometimes a guy just gets enthusiastic about something he loves :)

    With the rival 'Raidon and the Treasures of Ruin in the box I'm about as done with the base Violet content as I can be bothered, pending finding an IRL friendo with Scarlet.

    ...Anyways, I just bought Hidden Treasures. Kitakami, here I come!

    I had a blast with Kitakami. I decided to catch a whole new team to go through it with and I feel like that's the best way to go so that you don't just out-level all of the challenge. I then did the same thing for the second part of the DLC. It really gave me an appreciation for 'mons I hadn't used before.

    I may have to do just that. Also it's kinda silly that all the wild mons are scaled to me being at endgame. Lv60ish Sewaddle?

    So according to Nintendo's Twitter, to do the epilogue (out today), you have to complete "a postgame event in Pokemon Scarlet/Violet" (it doesn't specify what), complete the main stories of both DLC, and then claim a mythical Pecha Berry via Mystery Gift.

    Curious if all this will be worth it.

    You have to have done at least one Academy Ace Tournament, which you needed to do to unlock 6* raids.

    edit: updated to say 6* raids as opposed to 5* raids

    But, like, you *want* to get 5-star raids. The rewards are very very good. So you’d have to do that anyway.
