Took Edith to the popup store today, only to be told that queues were now closed and she couldn't join them. One very upset child and wasted money trying to get there. 

 

A very nice young lad saw she was upset and gave her a sticker he bought from the store. He said it wasn't much, but hope it made her happy. Which it did. However they need to convey information better than they did. 

 

Edit: I probably should have researched it more before going.

Yes if you look on twitter you can see the state of the queues each day. Talking a 6am start if you wanna get in before mid-day.

Possible stupid question alert
 

If you buy both (Sword and Shield) do the games connect with each other? ie: you can merge the Pokemon over that are exclusive to each version OR are they just two separate - but very similar - games?

You can move them between games but at the moment you'll need two Switches to do it. Or I imagine they still have the trade system so you can trade with someone online for the exclusive Pokemon.

 

Once the new version of Pokemon Bank (can't remember it's name off the top of my head) comes out you can use that without the need for a second Switch but that may be a subscription service if it's like previous versions.

So beyond collector/completionist value there’s no real argument for buying both?


I’m buying both so I can have one and my daughter the other.

Leaks are coming thick and fast as review copies are currently out in the wild. Here's a small image of what we have seen so far (behind spoiler tags, because for some people that seems to be important. I don't get it myself, it's like not knowing the roster of a new Street Fighter before jumping in)

There's more with every hour, the best place to see them is #PokemonLeaks on twitter

I'm attempting to complete the ridiculous task of shiny breeding my favourite team member from each of my previous six champion teams from the various games (stretching back to Platinum I think) to create an all-shiny wonderkid allstars team to run through Sword/Shield with. Going okay so far - got a lovely yellow Lucario and a cool black/pink Jang-mo sat waiting to filter from Ultra Sun to Pokemon Home whenever it goes live... presuming it does so before the games come out.

 

Looked at the Dex and yeah, some weird omissions. The sheer number of the things was always going to be a bit of a landmine the moment they stepped onto a home console though so can see why it's happened like this.

I’m starting to get hyped for this now. I am a bit wary because generally the first Pokemon game on a new system is usually not that great. I’m currently trying to finish off my Hoenn Dex in Alpha Sapphire before the games are released but those games were bad then and the remake didn’t make them any better.

Sold out a while back it seems.

 

Same everywhere though, including on Nintendo's site.

 

It was £82 a while back on (I think!) 365 Games, and I regret not ordering it then :(

Sad that Honchkrow didn't make it as it's my all time favourite. My number 2 is Mamoswine and he's made the cut though, so it's not all bad. I presume Diamond and Pearl remakes will be arriving some time next year too, which would explain why a lot of them haven't made it in.
