    I don’t think there’s any special form of them for Isle of Armor. At least not that I can find. I think I have all the items if you want to get the trade evos.

    To clarify, I am referring to this nightmare

    I have like 5 porygon2 and z in home. But if they didn't originate in isle of armour they don't count for the isle of armour dex.

    I only learned about it a month ago and am so close to getting it done. Will just keep trying gts until suddenly it works. Let's Go Golem was a similar deal.
    I am ignoring pokemon go dex. That way lies madness

    Actually I am all setup in pokemon shield if anyone is willing to jump back a gen and trade several porygons back and forward.
    However I am in NZST so add like 20 hours to your PST or whatever

    If you're not in a rush we can swap Girdurr when I get home from work tonight.

    Roughly how far off in hours is that? I can definitely do it assuming I'm still awake.

    Prolly another two.

    I think that's Teal Mask in the bag. Even did the Perrin sidequest for Bloodmoon Ursaluna. The Ogre Clan's gonna have to wait though - I challenged one and got absolutely stomped.

    ...Guess that doesn't bode well for Indigo Disk? I hear it's a real challenge of game knowledge and strategies.

    Depends, you can still outlevel Indigo Disk enough to stomp it. Ogerpon will happily run over basically anything, it's very silly.

    With making an effort to prevent being overleveled (and some other things, like not using items in battle and avoiding letting friendship get out of hand), I found Indigo Disk to be extremely difficult for a pokemon game. But, yeah, pretty much everyone I've seen or talked to just outleveled everything and it was fine.

    Honestly, I did start Indigo Disk with a team that was around the right level. Then Hisuian Arcanine and Ogerpon started trampling over things... and I had everything EV trained... and uh... yeah. I got overleveled without trying between all the battles and catching stuff and...

    Yep, that opening Lacey battle did not mess around.

    Also this academy has to be waaay out in the middle of the Poke-Atlantic or something 'cause I can't see the Unova mainland anywhere.

    Yeah, you pretty much need egg power to get any eggs from picnics. I usually get the compote in Alfornada for Egg Power Lv. 2 for that.

    You can also make a Great Peanut Butter Sandwich which only needs butter, peanut butter and bananas, and gives Egg Power 2

    And Egg Power also does shorten the time to hatch eggs as well as finding eggs so if you have a Flame Body Pokemon and Egg Power 2 going it hardly takes any time to hatch

    I vastly prefer picnic breeding (and picnic-passing “egg” moves) to ever other gen’s “ride back and forth for 30 sec, and then click through 4 dialog boxes” for each individual egg.

    I’ve found egg power 1 to be just fine. The two food stands right next to Levincia South have it, three steps away from a picnic spot, and down the street from the big ol’ round promenade for hatching.

    Yeah as long as you have at least rank 1 egg power it's many times faster than it's ever been to collect and hatch eggs, and less effort too since you can literally idle in the camp while eggs spawn in.

    Oh good there was a porygon community day yesterday. Well there goes the GTS only being porygon2 from Go for the next year or so.

    So I find myself thinking, why can't they just update all these trade evolutions to be like how they worked in Arceus. Oh wait a minute...
    So yeah I'm dumb. All Home Pokedexes complete. Carry on.

    Not long at all really. You can do 10 at a time. I have a hojillion of the dang things with how many useless materials I had laying around. You can hmu for them if you do start to lose your mind.

    Indigo Disk:
    * Got a Star Sweet and speeeeen'd up a Rainbow Star Alcremie!
    * I overprepped a bit for Drayton's challenge. Wasn't so bad!
    * Drayton himself smoked me like five times. Eventually had to remind myself that yes I have like forty Max Revives in my bag.
    * Already beat the other BB E4 so it's on to the Champion. I need to find good levelling spot 'cause I'm running out of Rare Candies.

    If you do any 5+ Star raid dens they usually give a stack of Large EXP Candies which I find a lot easier than grinding levels

    the requirement for his challenge doesn't apply to the actual battle with him and I didn't have to use this crappy team I scrambled together from the Terarium

    * Time to do the Gym rematches. The epilogue requires clearing at least one postgame tournament, right?
    * It'd be nice if I didn't have to manually return Koraidon to my battle party any time I ride it.
    * Can confirm, the little crystal turtle Pokemon is indeed pretty cute.

    How did I not know Magearna was just sitting there, available in Sun & Moon for the last 8 years and unlocked by just scanning a QR code?

    Anyway I had to go find where I stored my 3DS and recharge it and then find where I'd stored my game case (not the same place! For some reason) and then update the 3DS, but now I finally have it transferred into Home.
