this leak is VERY VERY accurate and real.

I'm confused. Are there random encounters in addition to Pokemon on the overworld? Or has it been replaced? I personally hate random encounters but I know a lot of people were unhappy with it being changed in Let's GO so maybe they will let us choose it in the options menu? Maybe wishful thinking but oh well.

Only the Wild Area has Pokémon in the overworld, but random encounters can still happen elsewhere. (And even within the Wild Area itself, I'm pretty sure)

Sad Pokémon following is gone but oh well.

Looks like it’s a mixture of over world Pokémon and wild encounters, which is what I was honestly hoping for. I enjoyed the overworld Pokémon in let’s go but removing wild encounters completely was dumb. On the other hand though, now caves will be real annoying again...

I love Dynamaxing purely because now all my Pokémon can be Titan Shifters lol

As for the Pokémon:

Gossifleur and Eldegoss are pretty neat. No super strong feelings on them but they have cute designs.

Wooloo is probably the weakest design in the gen so far. It’s literally just a sheep. Hopefully its evolution(s) are cool. I’d love a fully evolved sheep that actually has wool.

Just like everyone else, I think Corviknight is ****ing rad. Right now it’s my second planned member. And he’s a big boy too. He’s bigger than Slaking and Tropius and Tyranitar and ****. I’m betting it’s the fully evolved of a three-stage line (maybe the early route regional bird?). Oh, and it’s our first raven, so that’s cool.

Drednaw is rad as hell too. I’d put it on my team plan for now but that would give me two Water types, lol. Love the name and that we finally have a snapping turtle. Bet it will have an evolution that’s Water/Steel, since a dreadnought is a big ship. Seems like a natural progression as well.

It's funny how Pokemon has basically adopted the Skylanders gimmick model, with each new gen now introducing some flashy new thing that the game and lore revolves around but that either gets drastically reduced or removed in the following gen.

Tweet explaining how encounters work in SW/SH.

I'm personally really happy that they have both random encounters and roaming Pokémon, as it makes more sense than removing random encounters entirely. (And is much more preferable, imo)

If you hate random encounters then I don't see why you're playing Pokémon. It's been one of the main mechanics of the series. Just having visible wild Pokémon would make the games more boring and less exciting because you would already know what Pokémon you're encountering.

yeah random encounters is just like... a staple of the game.

also, personal opinion, i dont think corviknight is gonna evolve from anything. i think its like the skarmory of galar. not that id be complaining if it had other stages, more edgy bird babies the better, but i think its more likely the former.

I've been playing since gen 1 and I hate random encounters. I remember when they changed the way death works in Fire Emblem by allowing you to toggle it (and making some units impossible to die, they simply retire because they're needed in cutscenes), this is kinda like that.

Also I just realized, Nintendo has paid online now, which means unless you have friends who play the game, there will be a paywall to complete the pokedex.

I mean I don't really think it's that much of a jump, but it is certainly a natural progression. I honestly see the benefits of both and I'm glad both are implemented.

And you could just do it LAN. If your friends have another version, its likely trading won't be locked behind a paywall if they're right there next to you.

Yeah I'm glad both are in too, that way everyone is (hopefully) happy ^-^

What I mean is, if you don't have friends who are local. I should've clarified. If nobody around you likes Pokemon then you will have to pay 20 dollars a year for Nintendo online. It's only 20 dollars, but that's a lot more than the 0 dollars we had to pay to complete the pokedex in gens 4 - 7 with online play.

Yeah... I'm kinda wary on Switch Online, given how they're managing to bungle up Mario Maker 2.

While I'm happy there's a mix of overworld and random encounters, it does make me worried about something that could permeate the whole game: attempts to pander to both the Go crowd and the full release crowd. I know Game Freak stated this would be a game catering to the "long-time Pokémon fans." But in the latest Direct we have the mixing of Go/Let's Go and past main-line encounters, as well as raid battles now being a thing.

I'm not saying either of these are bad, but my fear is that Game Freak is going to try to hard to appeal to both of the audiences... and end up satisfying neither. In other words, the Sonic fandom issue. >.>

I dislike random encounters not because of the random part, but because XY and SM started to get really funny with hiding pokémon behind obtuse methods like Mareanie and Dhelmise that have low chances of being found without a guide. I really hope this is the best of both worlds to remove a problem that wasn't there back in gens 5 and before.

As long as there's a new shiny hunting method. Catch combos were awful.

Edit: Accidently created an almost perfect team for hunting shiny legendaries, so I’m taking a minor break from the Manaphy hunt so I can work on that. I’ll test it, and if it goes well, I’ll share the team here.

Yup, first ya gotta beat Pokemon Ranger about 5 times on 5 different copies of the game.
Transfer all 5 to Diamond/Pearl.
Save right before they hatch (transferred to file will never get them shiny)
trade to a different file
hatch them, if not shiny then SR.
Make a new file and catch 5 pokemon
trade over.
and repeat to hatch, SR, and make new files.

I'm not talking about the specific gimmicks themselves, I'm talking about the way the recent gimmicks are presented as a way to build up hype for a specific game but then mostly dropped afterwards. The first five gens introduced things like held items, abilities, double battles, the special/physical split, the revamped special/physical split, and hidden abilities. These weren't big flashy gimmicks that could be the focus of trailers and promo material, but they have all been continuously expanded on and added to in future games. But the past three gens have instead had these big flashy one-and-done gimmicks that have a huge presence in trailers and promo material for exactly one generation but then are shoved off into a corner in future generations. Which is exactly how the Skylanders gimmicks worked.

Well, kinda. The thing is, you need 2 Pokémon on your team to be allowed to trade, so really 4 eggs advised. I'm using 1 egg because I don't have anymore copies Trading just before they hatch is a bad idea, because you need to take a step to reenter the union room, so that just limits your resets. Finally, Platinum is by far the fastest game for this. I made a graph which I'll post later.
