But it's not really getting 1000 if three digits of them aren't appearing :'D It's just going to reach that number outside of the game which is pretty dumb.

Ok so here’s my ideal shiny hunting team for legendaries
You need a lot of Timer Balls, a Quick Ball, Full Restores, Revives and Roto-Catch Power.

Gardevoir
Synchronize
252 Defence and 252 Special Defence
Nature depends on legendary
Taunt (In case they have buffs)
Memento (To lower stats so the damage they do is barely anything)

Whimsicott
252 Defence and 252 Special Defence
Prankster (for that priority)
Taunt
Memento
Stun Spore

Whimsicott
252 Defence and 252 Special Defence
Prankster
Taunt
Memento
Stun Spore

Exeggutor
252 Defence 252 Special Defence
Leppa Berry
Harvest
Skill Swap (this in combination with Harvest and a bestowed Leppa Berry means the thing won’t struggle itself)
Bestow

Pyukumuku
252 HP 252 Speed
Unaware (just so it doesn’t have Innards Out
Soak (For things that resist False Swipe, Dark Types immune to Prankster, Grass/Electric types immune to Stun Spore, even less damage because no STAB bonus)
Taunt
Memento

Drapion
252 Attack 252 Speed
Leftovers
Battle Armor (So critical hits won’t bypass the debuffs)
False Swipe
Taunt
Swords Dance

This is the method to use. It doesn’t work on everything, but you can move things around to adjust it for specific legendaries. It’s important to look up the movesets for the legendary so you know what to do.
Lead with Gardevoir
Quick Ball
Taunt
Memento into Exeggutor
Sleep Powder (might need to use it twice because accuracy)
Skill Swap
Bestow
Switch to Pyukumuku
Taunt
Soak
Memento to Whimsicott 1
Taunt
Memento into Whimsicott 2
Stun Spore
Taunt
Memento into Drapion (unless they’re already at -6, then just switch)
False Swipe
Taunt
(Keep using False Swipe while applying Taunt when it wears off)
Roto-Catch
Timer Ball
Then repeat these steps until you get it:
Taunt
Timer Ball
Timer Ball

1) The Alola games had that, but still had data for all the other pokémon, so you could use anyone you want.
2) No. The meta game will likely still end up dominated by a handful of 'mons. Plus, Game Freak sets their own rules for VGC anyway. They could've made it Galar Dex only with other limitations in place.

i dont see a lot of people comment about how the in game world looks empty and lifeless. from the trailers to the e3 demo the world looks super empty. sure you have cool looking parts (cities and important story related areas) in the world that look full of life like this but then you have this area which is devoid of all life. very little trees, grass almost nonexistant, and having only a couple of pokemon appear on the open world. im gonna assume that most of the game will look like humangous flat lands with patches of grass added every now and then with maybe a tree added somewhere or a body of water.

honestly the too much water joke is stupid. if people actually read the review ign talked about how hms hindered the experience which is a fair point. the game also gets filled with water related gameplay mechanics such as surfing and diving which is what 90% of the players time is after getting the hms for it. and with surfing and diving comes water type pokemon and water type trainers. it gets h2 overbearing. windmaker made sailing better by being shorter while oras did not. 7.8 isnt even a bad score. people just make jokes about it because they disagree and dont bother actually putting effort to counter argue.

I wouldn't say that 7.8 is a bad score, sure, but the water routes take literally not even five minutes to traverse over. It's a meme both ways, plain and simple.

I always thought it was funny how Mario, Zelda, and Pokemon all had a huge focus on water during that gen. Pokemon of course had Hoenn with its many water routes, while Zelda had Wind Waker with its great ocean, and Mario had Super Mario Sunshine with the F.L.U.D.D. and a Tropical Island which eventually gets flooded.

Mario Sunshine and The Wind Waker probably had a focus on water because the GameCube's codename was Dolphin, IIRC.

Not sure about R/S/E, though, but I imagine that might still have been a part of the water craze back then. *shrug*

Too much water is a meme because of the wording, more than anything. They didn't say "poorly designed region" or "overabundance of repetitive areas", they said "too much water".

I think Nintendo had a thing for water because the GameCube was powerful enough to run water physics. And no bifrost if you actually read the review and not the final score ign states Quote:
It’s not a new complaint, but Hoenn is still imbalanced type-wise, heavily favoring water. It’s especially noticeable in Alpha Sapphire, in which Team Aqua (the villains of the piece) use a lot of water types. It feels like there are water Pokémon in nearly every battle, and I have an overleveled Pikachu to show for it. You also have to navigate many bodies of water, since much of the late-game involves the HMs Surf and Dive to get from place to place. Diving was really neat back in 2002 when it was new, but I found it incredibly tedious in Alpha and Omega — an obvious example of how superfluous some HMs are.

#2469 Posted: 15:28:35 16/06/2019
Yeah, I know the review went into detail. The meme is that it was on the tl;dr as too much water.

Also you can still complete the dex in Pokemon Home

and actually the meta will get better, especially now that Z moves and megas are out of the picture and any commonly seen troublesome mon can just be not included so they cant compete.

It's not about completing the Dex. Unless Home's going to have a Smogon-esque battle simulator, it's nothing but a glorified trophy case. I already know some of my favorite 'mons are getting the axe. [points to avatar] I want to use them in a console Pokémon game.

And Game Freak have never really cared about balancing their game. People hack and gen in Pokémon all the time that can pass the pathetic hack checks. The Switch is already hacked and the genning software works with LGPE, so it's inevitable that it will work with SwSh. The only question is whether SwSh will break street date and end up in the hands of data miners early like USUM and Smash Ultimate.

Look, if you're excited for the game, I'm happy for you. I hope it's everything you want and then some. But please stop trying to make excuses and justify something people are allowed to be disappointed over. ¬_¬

Dynamaxing as far as we know has only 2 types of moves, Max Guard and an attack from every element. Seems like stats will still be the only thing that matters if you can just Dynamax your Garchomp to get rid of a scary counter.

Likely spoilers ahead:
According to a massive leak that was posted before Dynamaxing was revealed (And so far has been right, including about Dynamaxing itself), there is also going to be something called "Gigamaxing" where Pokémon change their forms akin to Megas.

I know that's true. Not saying the game will be bad because of the things removed, but by how TOO MANY of the, are removed. People may love a Pokemon game, but they love playing with Pokemon from their childhood, and the fact that they can't transfer them from game to game anymore is bound to irk a few. And things like Mega Evolutions may not have existed back then, but it's something that people have already grown used to. The removes were abrupt and numerous, and that will clearly affect the sales.

They need to be good by AAA standards and not just okay, first. It's not JUST Dexit, is that Dexit is happening on top of all of the series' problems that fans forgave because everyone could play with their little team. Now this is being taken away and replaced with NOTHING. No better story, no better graphics (the Swish to Let's Go comparison is... Scary), no better pacing.

This is why people are bringing up Gale of Darkness and Battle Revolution on the forums. If the animations were top notch for all the pokémon that stayed, people would hardly fault GF for this. But this is being all take, no give.

Well Game Freak played with fire, and they're going to get burned. They took a risk too big, and they will face the consecuences unless they do something about the drastic decisions taken in the months left before the game's release.

If I'm coming off as an ass, I apologize to everyone else here. But the excuses that people keep making for **** like this is exactly why I've grown tired of the community for both Pokémon and Nintendo as a whole.

Pokemon Co of Gamefreak is giving fans everything they want and yall are STILL COMPLAINING.
at least 95% of those "Im canceling my preorder" people still end up playing and loving the game when it comes out.

This is something that people have every right to complain about, honey. You white knighting for Game Freak doesn't change that fact.

Either way, I'm tapping out boiz.

A sword wields no strength unless the hand that holds it has courage.

Black lives matter, don't stop fighting until they do.

I might not get Sword/Shield unless they put in the national dex. Listen, I can live without the dex if I am able to play with ALL Pokemon. It's I gotta catch em all, not "Catch 5% of the creatures".

It's not healthy, it's not even competitive healthy (we got rules to ban some broken pokemon anyways so wtf?), it's not even franchise healthy. So yeah not really happy and I will continue to ***** and moan, because I think I should have the rights to bring my BEST AND GOOD BOIS ON OVER. I WANT TO MAKE MY KNIGHT TEAM DAMNIT.

So if you want:

-No competitive fun
-Not having your favorite pokemon at all
-No fun mechanics to mess with

At what the price of 40 or 60 bucks? Then yeah waste your money on half a game. I'm gonna use that $40 to get a game that's actually bringing their monsters back. God Bless Monster Hunter/Capcom for actually listening to their fanbase on missing Monsters.

They need to be good by AAA standards and not just okay, first. It's not JUST Dexit, is that Dexit is happening on top of all of the series' problems that fans forgave because everyone could play with their little team. Now this is being taken away and replaced with NOTHING. No better story, no better graphics (the Swish to Let's Go comparison is... Scary), no better pacing.

This is why people are bringing up Gale of Darkness and Battle Revolution on the forums. If the animations were top notch for all the pokémon that stayed, people would hardly fault GF for this. But this is being all take, no give.


Going by that Pikachu comparison shot that's been going around, to me it looks like they might've just applied a different shader engine and called it a day. No new model or textures. Hell, if anything they might've lowered resolution on the textures as the facial features look a bit more blurry. Though that one could just be the screenshot's quality.

As for the story, yeah, Krystal, we really don't know about that yet, but at the same time I don't exactly have high expectations. Things have seemed to have been going in a downward spiral in that department the last few gens. Pokemon having a yearly release schedule is taking its toll.

I rather agree though, for everything that's being cut here, there doesn't seem to be a lot of big stuff announced to be added to be worth the sacrifice.

Imagine if only 50 pokemon dont get included.


Also seriously your using "Gotta catch em all" as an argument?
YOU STILL CAN CATCH THEM ALL. Not even to mention the fact the motto isn't even that in Japan
It's "Get Pokemon!"
which you still can do.


LGPE was still a fun core title, and it only had 153 pokemon (plus alolan forms) in it.
We already have WAY more then that confirmed for SwSh.


No competitive fun
A meta changing cuz some are getting hard banned with no chance of unbanning sounds like a fun time especially when certain old mons keep ending up competitive. Let's the new pokemon get some time to shine

Not having your favorite pokemon at all
With about 1000 pokemon, 1 of your favorites disappearing isnt the end of the world.
It gives you more of a reason to try other pokemon


No fun mechanics to mess with

That doesn't have anything to do with the current situation.

just because you dont see an issue with dexit, doesnt mean you have to drag people that are bothered by it. you dont have to sway everyone to support something.

with that said, i do take back my initial comments about not caring too much about dexit as long as my faves are included. it was pretty self centered and i understand that now. this was a big risk taken by gamefreak and one that wasnt worth it. i hope they learn from this.

and if i have to pay $20 for a national dex dlc in 2 years, fine i guess.

People are attacking Joe Merrick over this issue just because he isnt yelling in anger.
