    What was the last anime you watched before posting in this thread?

    Finally got around to watching The Rising of the Shield Hero, right now I just finished Episode 12. I've heard a lot about this anime before, but now that I actually sat down and watched it, it's even better than I expected. Naofumi is such an interesting character because he constantly gets...

    SPOILERS Latest Wild Area Max Raids

    You mean 5 Star non-Gigantamax Toxtricity? Because I did just fine against 3 Star Gigantamax, it goes down a lot easier. 5 Star though? Don't even think about it.

    SwSh Max Raid Battle request thread

    I'm looking for players to join me in a 5 Star Gigantamax Toxtricity raid. EDIT: Toxtricity raid disappeared today. Request suspended until another one reappears. I do have a 3 Star Gigantamax Kingler raid going on right now for any Shield players that want one. FC: SW05621-4055-5722 LC: 0961...

    SPOILERS Latest Wild Area Max Raids

    5 Star Gigantamax Toxtricity is nearly impossible to do solo, it's ridiculous. Its attacks hit far too hard (and are mostly AoE attacks) and the NPCs are far too useless for you to usually last more than 2 or 3 turns against the thing. I did manage to defeat it once out of like, 10-15 tries, but...

    Game Freak is relocating their office to the same location that Nintendo is consolidating their Tokyo offices to

    Good. Now maybe Nintendo will keep a closer eye on what Game Freak is doing and start helping them make the games better.

    Pokemon Home

    Yeesh, what a complete ripoff. A minimal upgrade in features for three times the cost? No thank you. I'll probably just transfer a few Pokemon to round out my Galar Dex and then stop using it. Man, between Dexit and this they're making me want to bring up my old Pokemon less and less.

    Change a Trainer's team

    Same for 3 too. In fact that's pretty much the reason any type specialist's team DOESN'T fall into 1. Some of the older games like RBY, RSE, and DP really had some major variety issues and there just weren't enough Pokemon to put together a team of 4 or 5 different families of the same type...

    SwSh Sword & Shield: Expansion Pass

    I could plausibly see maybe 5-10 completely new lines at most. Probably not a lot though. They'd probably focus more on legendaries, Galarian forms/evolutions, and Gigantamax forms.

    SwSh Sword & Shield: Expansion Pass

    So after playing around in the Wild Area a bit more, I think the game could use a few more QoL improvements. So here's some things I'd like to see added to the Expansion Pass (not sure if anyone of this will actually happen, but I'd definitely like it to be): -Some sort of DexNav-esque feature...

    SwSh Sword & Shield: Expansion Pass

    So they mentioned that you're going to be able to G-Max the starter you began the game with in Isle of Armor, I'm wondering if this is unique to your starters or if they're going to provide a way for Pokemon you've already caught to be able to G-Max. This would be very much appreciated, one of...

    Generation IV Remake Speculation

    Speaking of Pokemon not being accessible, if there's 200 more Pokemon in the Expansion Pass, there's only about 300ish Pokemon not in the game. This would be a lot more reasonable for them to cover in the remakes, so I could now see them including all of the Pokemon in DP remakes that aren't in...

    SwSh Sword & Shield: Expansion Pass

    Hence why I said it may be simultaneously the best and worst thing to happen. It's an improvement over third versions but it can easily be abused and considering Game Freak's struggles in providing sufficient content to the games, probably will be.
  13. Bolt the Cat

    SwSh Sword & Shield: Expansion Pass

    And that would be fair, like I said you should judge the expansion in terms of what it actually brings to the table, so if we see that the content is literally just 2 new Wild Areas and 200+ Pokemon. My point was more that DLC isn't automatically a ripoff just because it's compensating for...

    Generation IV Remake Speculation

    Agreed that the Expansion Pass means no Sinnoh remakes this year. As is, Game Freak can barely handle doing one version, do you really think they'll be able to handle a new game AND DLC? The Expansion Pass seems to be our new "game" this year for all intents and purposes. I could definitely...
