    Counterpoint: nah. I'm the type that just wants to catch all the Pokemon once and call it a day. Which I now can't do because of the bullshit requirements to do obtuse tasks with a group over and over and over and over.

    You have to have done at least one Academy Ace Tournament, which you needed to do to unlock 5* raids.

    *looks it up* Which apparently only unlocks after you rematch all eight gym leaders. Welp, no epilogue for me, then.

    The gym rematches are pretty easy, the highest levels they bring are lvl66. Could probably solo all of them pretty quickly with a decent lvl100 Pokemon.

    ...I don't think I did the Ace tournament and I absolutely have 5 star raids?

    Not that I can beat any of them, because I absolutely don't have the firepower for that, but I definitely have had to back out of stuff after seeing it's five star and thus I can't beat it.

    Oh sorry, it's to unlock 6* raids. 5* are just unlocked by rolling credits on the base game.

    I did the new Blaziken raid. After some failures (that damn thing gets 8 moves somehow? CHEATING), I was in a group where suddenly it went from 50% with a shield to dead. LOL no idea how.

    I was Mew, partners were Miraidon, Bellibolt, and alolan Ninetails. None of the other Miraidon or Bellibolt in any of the other raids did anything that explosive. So good job, rando internet trainer!

    * Wow, I cannot wait to break Carmine's haughty attitude.
    * Kieran's actually kinda okay? But I already have a clue he'll be going off the deep end before it's over.
    * So many "new" mons to catch and evolve. And they will evolve fast when they're already Lv55+.

    Nope. It's why I transferred the shiny Pichu from the HGSS event to S/M, evolved it there, then transferred it to SV.

    My idea to fix this is to reintroduce incenses as items that allow the holder to evolve into a regional variant, or for their eggs to hatch into the regional variant.

    LOL. I’m gonna have to play Scarlet sometime and I’m not terribly looking forward to it. But the living dex is gonna need those two legendary paradox.

    Also I’m guessing I can’t put the “main” Miraidon in Home? Which is why they just straight up give you a second one? That I traded to my kid for his second Koraidon. So I need the “second” Koraidon to get a *third* Miraidon etc etc

    With Shield/Scarlet I just do a second playthrough on a new Switch profile to get copies of the legends that I can permanently trade for the other version exclusive. You don't need an online membership for the extra accounts either since you can access all your profile's storage from within Home.

    The actual lore reason is apparently that they eat a ton of pancakes so juat make an Alolan pancake item . Theyve done it before

    Like given a choice most people bwould use Raichu A anyway so it should be easier to get

    I think I'm finally done with Violet, unless they add a must-have through a tera raid or something.

    I got all but three legendaries because I didn't have the snacks for them. I wasn't going to bother getting any of the legendaries at first, since I have them all already in Home, but I was told they have their original music when you fight them so that was motivation enough.

    I made a box in Home just for the Pokemon you are traded in the clubhouse.
    There are exactly 30 Pokemon you can trade for, which is the perfect amount. One for each special coach, the Blueberry Elite Four, the secret boss, and Kieran and Carmine. I don't know if there's anything different about these Pokemon (except the secret boss') but they have their own ribbon and the trainer's OT name and number so that's cool. It reminds me of catching N's Pokemon in Black 2 and White 2.

    Also I'm not sure if you're told to do this anywhere in game, but if you've completed the Indigo Disc part of the DLC...
    Take Terapagos to the Crystal Pool in Kitakami and you get an interesting cutscene. This is probably a well-known secret on the internet but I had no idea until someone told me.

    The implication of the dlc and its impact on future games
    I guess Terapagos is not in fact the reason Area Zero is how it is but just another weird Pokemon created by it. Add to the fact that they purposely introduced Terastalizing to 2 other regions implies to me they aren't done with it yet

    They should introduce scented candle items for regional evos. To get an Alolan Raichu, you have to burn an ~Alolan Breeze~ scented candle before evolving

    Yeah we own both copies tho cuz kiddo. So I'm probably going to like, breed and $$Vitamin EV train a team, rush the gyms, and then swap in my level 100s from Home to blitz the rest of it. Can't do that on a different profile.

    Sidelong information from the Scarlet and Violet DLC Epilogue:
    Penny complaining about her dad's "Adven-tour" obsession clocks him as Peony, the guy from the Sword and Shield DLC.

    Who was himself, the brother of Chairman Rose.

    ... making Penny Chairman Rose's niece. I guess that explains her technology obsession?

    Also making her Peonia's sister. Added to this is that Penny's Japanese name is "Botan", which means lotus, adding to the flower theme.

    The DLC has basically two difficulty levels depending on if you beat the base game yet, but trainer fights to get Ogerpon top out with level 37 pokemon (on a team of 6). You can start the DLC story pretty early, it's just that you're probably going to need to be a ways into the base game before your pokemon are up to the story fights.

    Also, it will absolutely cheese the game, Ogerpon is a beast.

    Hmm. Maybe the evo isn't counted as a regional variant internally? (I assume you're using an everstone already since it's working for Zorua)

    When you're trying to breed a regional form, have the parent of the form you want hold an Everstone and will breed that form down even in a different region

    Yeah I wasn’t using an everstone. Wonder why Zorua was working tho. Maybe the one I got traded was a good nature so I gave it everstone anyway lol.

    In other news: Living dex complete in Home, again. All 1025 accounted for, although not in every single variation.

    There are two pokemon home tells me I do not have. Isle of armour Porygon2 and Porygon-Z

    No matter who I trade with in gts, Porygon2 for Porygon2, they are never the porygon2 for isle of armour. I am only trading with the ones with sword shield icons and yet they still don't count.
    Porygon-Z traders only want iron crowns so can get stuffed.
