Abilities? no

Natures? yes

EVs and IVs? ehhhh, kinda? not really? you give pokemon items to increase their effort level and that increases stats


They removed abilities but kept natures? That's kinda weird, I'd be expecting the opposite.

So... they just merged EVs and IVs to provide a single type of stat mechanic or something like that? So just regular stats that can be increased with items much like candies did in Let's Go? That's neat!

the combat in this game is different than other pokemon games. its more like other jrpgs like smt where there is an attack order instead of moves having priority/speed ties/etc that pokemon games have. the pokemon still have abilities for stuff like pokemon home but don't appear in game. ivs are gone and evs are gained from stat boosting items. natures are in the game because it would be boring for pokemon to be just stat sticks

I hate the unown quest with a passion, and Im only ABCDE in

At least my reward for getting all 28 is being able to shiny hunt them once it is all done.

i love all of the starters so far! there's never really been a set of starters where i've immediately liked all of them. i think their evolutions will make or break them for me, but we dont have them yet unfortunately

So I finally managed to beat the final fight in the post game, and as a reward my luck just so happened to get this baby.
The only Hisuian form shiny I wanted before even seeing it, and now I am a proud momma of a shiny foxy boy. He's level 29 so only one level from evolving, but I am not training or evolving him till I can transfer him into Pokemon Scarlet or Violet!
Next to Kitz my Alpha Zoroark for size comparison.

my prediction for fuecoco's final evo it not only will he lose his limbs like snivy, but it'll also be some kinda quetzalcoatl thing, fits thematically with the region

It's not gonna be a snake, there is folklore that fits the region named coco and he looks like a pepper.
So it's most likely fire/ghost as a joke on "ghost pepper" while being a mythical ghost monster and a crocodile.

The fact the lighthouse looks even worse than the stuff on the Seviper screenshot only supports my point
But hey I'll just do the same strategy as gen 8, wait until the spinoffs come out then enjoy pokémon, not gonna grill anyone for wanting to play SV

i just wanna say im shocked that legends is actually good let alone how good it is, everything before release pointed to it being a disaster tbh. I bought it like last week and I like this **** better than botw, it’s genuinely so good maybe the best pokemon game imho (like, nothing is going to top hgss in terms of how much was put in that game and it’s good but it also has a lot of **** design decisions pla is like… actually good design)



Yeah pla is really different from theain games and I think that's why people like it a lot. I'm not a graphics guy but for this game where the main appeal is seeing pokemon in the wild graphics don't really matter too much.

i have my gripes with the game (water is terrible for catching stuff, the story is real bad, we’re 4 mainline games in on the switch and we still have zero good shiny hunting methods) but damn, it does a lot right, especially that one fight near the end, you know the one

Honestly shiny hunting in this game prepatch was too ez. Story in open world games is hard to do right but the way the game handle open world was basically areas and story bits in between. And the story was not that rememberable. Yeah water is so bad lmao

zero good shiny hunting methods?



lets go
-catch combos require you to use lgpe catching mechanics where you can fail a shiny just because your perfect ultra ball throw decided not to work (or the mon attacked the ball without warning)

swsh
-stupid amount of shiny locks for dumb reasons
-raid dens are either just full odds but longer or so exploited to the point where its not even hunting anymore
-masuda works but gets boring fast
-the method in this game is knocking out 500 of the same mon then looking for a 3% chance of a brilliant for a stupid low chance of finding a shiny
-dynamax adventures either require friends who are very willing to help you get this shiny even if they already have it or playing by yourself (and relying on the godawful ai). admittedly this and masuda qre the closest things we’ve gotten to decent
-shiny charm doesn’t work on regis or max raids so that kinda sucks

bdsp
-the shiny charm is broken
-find 40 diglett underground for a +1 boost for 4 minutes? terrible
-masuda method somehow feels worse in this game thanks to the awful movement (and i think it’s slower too? i’ll need to check)

pla
-stupid amount of shiny locks for dumb reasons
-new method is entirely dependant on what mons feel like showing up today
-want to increase the odds for this mon? complete these arbitrary tasks

oh and soft resetting was removed on all these games. not that you would use it much in pla but it would save time in bdsp and maybe lgpe’s legendaries

i’m sure full odds hunters would enjoy some of these but since i mostly hunt with methods… yeah

well zorua is about as difficult to hunt as every other mon in the game thanks to outbreaks, meaning not very difficult if you have good rng. unfortunately, zorua has a 7:1 gender ratio, so good luck getting a female

Alright fully updated list of each shiny I have in PLA including dupes and the free ponyta (Rapidash cuz I used it on my team)

Me standing next to my newly obtained Alpha Shiny Cyndaquil (My FIRST alpha shiny) and a new outfit I bought to celebrate this successful hunt.
[User Posted Image]
Look at him! He's so FAT I love him.


Edit
Did one last quick outbreak for the night
[User Posted Image]
So not only did I get my first alpha shiny, but now I have a perfect shellos.
West sea is best sea
level 27 so she's relatively low level (I like it when shinies are low level cuz you can transfer them to a new file and use them on a playthrough)
She is also female like me.
Literally is my top favorite pokemon (well evolves into Gastrodon which is the top favorite, Shellos is still high up their though)
