  • I HAVE CLEARED OUT 10 BOXES OF RUBBISH POKÉMON.

    That was way overdue, although I now have found 2 boxes of usable stuff which I need to train up :P.
    OK something must be up, as I just hatched a shiny FROM THE FIRST EGG I BRED of the shiny Electivire I got on here.

    That's 3 shinies, in 4 days? What the actual...

    Don't jinx yourself haha. Hopefully that shiny luck continues! I actually had a similar spurt back in July. One weekend I got around 8 shinies from raids and breeding.

    Yeah I hope this continues :).
    Goes months without getting a shiny, then gets two shinies in two days.

    Found someone who had a Red Gyarados Max Raid, and didn't set a link code. It came up just as I finished beating a Drapion Max Raid, and I was second in the group. It would have been easier if we weren't all Electric types with a Lightning Rod Raichu in the middle, I had to resort to using Dracozolt shaky Hustle accuracy and Dragon Claw.

    Oh the worst thing was that was someone's choice. Our team comp was Mew (that transformed turn 1), my Dracozolt, a Raichu and a Regieleki. Can't remember if the host had the Mew or the Regieleki, but the Raichu was slowest and used Thunder Punch for a few turns of absorbing electric moves, before using Discharge with all those lightning rod boosts, knocking out the Regieleki and after Mew turned into Gyarados.

    I'm just glad I got to Dynamax turn two, and use Max Wyrmwind instead.

    The joys of randoms.

    I was thinking of the DMax Adventure because I can't read lmao.

    That honestly sounds like they were trying to sabotage and troll.
    They purposefully Thunder Punched to get boosts, then Discharged.

    I'm sorry that happened, man.
    No one deserves to be part of something that stupid.

    Yeah, always bring your best Pokemon to Max Raids, as you never know who you're going to be with!
    I caught a shiny Dry Skin Jynx in a Dynamax adventure! That will be usable as well, as it wants Fake Out. Actually, between Fake Out and Lovely Kiss, it seems quite disruptive. Could be interesting!

    Also, it can be one shot by anyone using Max Rockfall or Max Flare even with Focus Sash. Awkward.

    How can it be OHKO'ed with a Focus Sash?
    Anthrix

    With Dry Skin, it takes damage if it is in the Sun. A lot of Pokémon have Max Flare or Max Rockfall, and I just think it is hilarious it's weak to both of those moves, and it dies at the end of the turn to it as well. Flip side, it's immune to Hail and heals in Rain...

    So not really Ohko, but close enough. If you Fake Out their Dynamax, then it could quite easily faint without doing anything other than drawing a single attack away. High risk, high reward :D.
    I have finally caught Galarian Moltres. In a Luxury Ball. With the lowest Attack IV at level 50.

    That took too long - my capture card has recorded a 54 minute struggle, and that's not including the botched attempts beforehand.
    FORTY LUXURY BALLS. MY AMOONGUSS RAN OUT OF SPORES.

    4 hours of soft resetting later, I have the original Regis with the right IVs. 3 down. 2 to go, and then I have to grind on my other account to get the last one.

    I hate legendaries so much.
    Anthrix
    Anthrix
    Worst thing is, I have 20 Master Balls...

    To be honest, I did a trade with Benjamin on here, and he wanted to catch all the Regis in Heavy Balls,and it got me thinking, why not try and get them in a ball that doesn't get used much?

    I have 900+ of them as well, seemed like an OK idea at the time but Regice just wouldn't play ball.
    Gokudera
    Gokudera
    I might have a new thing to do when the ball is shaking.
    I used to hold Down B, but I held Right on the Right stick, and I caught Regieleki in a Premier Ball in Red health.
    I was extremely surprised. Joy Con drift worked in my favor lmao.

    @Gokudera DON'T SAY THINGS LIKE THAT, You'll bring back all my 8 year old superstitions and I'll be trying them all out...

    I swear I wore my game boy colour buttons doing those.
    Spent 3 hours soft resetting for a 3 Attack IV Calyrex... And the Spectrier I got with it is rubbish with 31 Attack IV.

    I hate legendaries. If there is a format in the future which requires them, then I have literally go to restart the game to try and get him again....
    *Downloads Crown Tundra update, does a load of chores while it is taking forever to update, then when it completes, spends 40 minutes doing daily things like beating Avery and collecting mints instead*

    *has not played a minute of the new expansion*
    Anyone around for the next 20 minutes to help me evolve 3 Conkeldurrs?

    Yeah my friend traded me like straight after XD.

    But thanks anyway!
    Apparently 11 straight wins on the Doubles Ranked ladder puts me into Master Ball Tier, no. 703 in the world right now.

    Like, wow. First time for everything :D.
    Up to Ultra Ball Tier, 8 wins, 0 losses.

    Made a big play, switching out Primarina for Coalossal to take a Thunderbolt from Duraludon, expecting their Milotic to kill my Tsareena, giving me Coalossal and Primarina on the field for the late game, Coalossal sweep.

    With Sun up, he survived a Scald, a Thunderbolt and an Aqua Jet, taking out Duraludon, Centiscorch and Milotic in two turns. Gotta love GMAX Volcalith residual damage!

    That's one tanky Train engine.

    I still cannot fathom why Game Freak got rid of the VS Recorder in SwSh.
    I cant imagine the Switch doeant have the technology to allow it.

    But that's awesome, man! Looking forward to some sweet battles!

    ... 5 months in and I've only just noticed that. That would have way more sense than what they have now, I. E. The 30 second record button thing.
    Gokudera
    Gokudera
    The record button works well for capturing funny moments.
    I have a few saved. Like combos I've done in BlazBlue X Tag Vs, or a few funny interactions in saint's Row the Third, but it wont work for matches.
    They seriously need to bring the VS Recorder back. I'm really hoping we get that with Crown Tundra.
    I doubt we will, but a man can dream.
    I did it. I caved in, and bred a competitive Amoonguss.

    I feel dirty and awful.

    Yeah that would be a good buff. Own Tempo, Inner Focus, Oblivous and Scrappy already block Intimidate, ignoring Follow Me and Rage Powder would be good too.

    Stalwart and Propeller Tail ignore Rage Powder / Follow Me / Ally Switch, but it's a shame its only on two Pokémon.
    Gokudera
    Gokudera
    And Propeller Tail isn't the ideal choice for Barraskewda anyway, since Swift Swim is a thing.

    Maybe we could get new moves in Crown tundra that ignore Rage Powder/Follow Me. Isle of Armor focused on terrain centric attacks (which I really like) so maybe we can get some in the Tundra.
    Anthrix
    Anthrix
    They added in Terrain centric attacks, and then banned Indeedee and Rillaboom because they were the best abusers.

    I think Propeller Tail is the better ability - there are better Swift Swimmers (cough Kingdra) who have much better bulk, especially when Dynamaxed.

    I saw a Propeller Tail, 4 attack Barraskewda destroy Aaron Zheng this morning, enabling a Taunt Vanniluxe to stop his Trick Room going up, and oh shotting any redirection and Trick Room leads with a combo of Max Airstream, Blizzard and Taunt.

    Maybe but yeah, more redirection counters please!
    The amount of hacked shines I've got in Surprise Trades in the last two days is... Disturbing...

    Wait...so you mean the shiny Charizard I got nucknamed some weird website with perfect IVs and a Modest Nature Nature wasn't legit???!!! I thought they just named it after their favorite webpage.
    Well I feel like a complete ******. Traded the worst lvl 1 Galarian Slowbro for a lvl 100 hyper trained Zacian on the Pokemon Home GTS. If you're going to ask for any old rubbish, expect to get rubbish lol.
    Gokudera

    It sounds like that other person was a just being an amazingly lovely person.
    It's great to see, considering most GTS trades are
    Trading: Cradilly level 60
    Asking for Hydreigon Level 1-10.
    I dont have home, but I hope they changed that. Restrict certain levels for every Pokemon.
    But that takes effort, and we know Gamefreak hates that more than they hate Male Combee.
    Anthrix

    Yeah, there's still a lot of that. You can filter out mythical Pokemon, but there's tons of people looking for Kubfu and Urshifu, which no one in their right mind would trade away for a Suicune you can't get in Sword and Shield yet.

    It's just stupid and time wasting - I'd love to see who the heck is putting those kinds of trades up and for what purpose.
    Update on Coalossal - Caught a 10 Attack IV Timid Gigantamax one, EV trained, pp uped it all and everything, only for Game Freak to add Max Soup to the game ONE DAY LATER, so you can Gigantamax anything that has a G-Max form.

    I could have bred a better one - another 500,000 Pokedollars gone.... :(.
    Just sank 500,000 in-game credits into EV training a Gigantamax Coalossal, only to find that the Ability Capsules don't change Hidden Abilities.

    :(.

    Oof.
    Pour one out for Anthrix's sanity.
    New record for breeding and training team: 8 in game hours. Sure, 3 were from Surprise Trades, and one of those was hacked fully trained, but I managed to breed a 5IV Brave Ferroseed in 20 minutes, including the time it took to get Brave from Shiftry to Ferroseed. Also got a 6 IV Brave Early Bird Seedot out of it as well...

    ... Brag over.
    Only got 28 more Pokémon to complete the Galar Pokédex! Might need some help - message me, especially if you have Sword!
