Sneasel are loathsome creatures indeed. As soon as you breath in the vicinity of one, a whole swarm starts Naruto-running right at you, determined that you will never reach that shaking-grass for the much more rare Pokémon you're actually there for!

 

But even they are nothing compared to the Noivern, Braviary, and Bisharp hordes at the Lake of Outrage. Not only are they overly keen, they're bloody fast to boot. Leave me alone, guys, all I'm here for is a Jolly Ditto!

 

First time I went to Outrage I saw a Rotom in the distance, split-second later it was in my face throwing down... We need more Pokemon like that it was ace!

The game crashed on me yesterday just after I had caught a Pokemon I didn't have. Which is annoying and also the first time a Pokemon game has ever crashed on me.

 

One minor criticism but it also annoys me that fast travel is just a loading screen. I miss the train animation you got in Heart Gold / Soul Silver and the animation you got when using Poke Ride in Sun/Moon. They both added some character to the world and it's a shame these games don't have something similar.

Yeah that surprised me. I kinda wish they'd force me to use the train stations and show an actual train ride.

Should I get Sword or Shield? 


Sword seems to have outsold Shield, so you’re probably more likely to get Sword exclusives sent across on random trades.

Quick tip for this. When the game freezes up, try going to settings and turning on airplane mode and then going back to the game. Has worked for me.

£16 a year for Pokemon Home is big increase over the cost of Bank when they have very similar functionality.

Since completing the game I've just looked at how many varieties of Alcremie there are and I don't think I'll be getting all varieties like I did for Vivillon. 

 


The new Max Raid battles however have some exclusive sweets as a reward for some of the evolutions but trying to find the battle is so frustrating. I've spent a hour cycling around the Wild Area trying to find one with no luck. Does anyone have any tips on how your supposed to get them?

I usually just join other people's to be honest. There's a lot of Alcremie raids to join at the moment. I usually trigger a special trade, then head pretty much immediately back to the screen where the raids appear, wait for a "press X to update" notification and new ones usually appear.

I’ve been trying to hatch a shiny Feebas since I completed my Dex over a month ago. This game hates me :(

There's an update for Bank on 3DS as well. I'm going to hold off subscribing for now, none of the gift Pokemon make it worth the effort and because most of the Dex aren't in Sword/Shield transferring them just means they'll sit on the cloud server doing nothing.

They have added a hundred more Pokémon to S/S to tie in with this, though.

 

EDIT: 35, not 100.

Hatching a shiny was the most psychologically challenging grind I can remember. The fact that there's no progress, and you're essentially in exactly the same place after 1 egg as you are after 500 I found really difficult to mentally accept. And I felt that I couldn't give up at any point and waste the time already invested. So felt trapped in this ridiculous grind until I hit the 1/500 chance or whatever it is. Really don't want to go through that again! :D

The first thing I tried to farm was a shiny Eevee so to get this as my first Shiny after that failure is amazing!

 

Edit: Not a G-max but still pretty damn happy!

So it turns out I was lying to myself and have just paid for the subscription. if anyone has a spare Meltan and Melmetal that they've transferred from Go that they'd like to trade let me know what you want for them, they are the only two Pokemon that I will be missing from my Living Dex when I complete Sword.

I can get you a Meltan this evening as I already have one in Sword. Melmetal will be a few weeks as I just spaffed 400 candy evolving a Meltan on Saturday.

Thanks. Are there any Pokemon you're looking for in return?

 

Something cool/useful from one of the previous games? I have Ultra Sun, but I'm struggling to get through it.

So anybody using the time-skip exploits? I'm finding it pretty disheartening trying to do things legit when everyone else is running around with Shiny G-max pokemon. Also, I just read that if you recieve a hacked pokemon from a Suprise trade and take it online - you could get your online features revoked.

 

Bah, Nintendo where are you?

Using Pokémon home and all the asking trades are crazy. I just want a Ditto for Ditto trade but you look and it's all "I'll trade you a Ditto for the legendary, shiny MalmetalxWoolooxWailord digi-fusion MetalWoolord from the limited release x-rated German game Poke-Pokecops, with perfect evs. Level 1."
