    Spoilers Latest Wild Area Max Raids

    Yeah; I managed to invite a team of three to a 5 star battle a couple days ago. And then tried hosting for a couple others, but eventually had to take them down on my own. Yesterday I came across a 5 star Shiny Zeraora, couldn’t find anyone to join and got creamed after bringing it’s health...

    Spoilers Sword & Shield: Expansion Pass

    I’m pretty sure its meant to be a nod to the classic sci-fi movie “It Came From Outer Space”. Especially since the aliens in that movie are sort of jellyfish looking, as is Nihilego.

    Spoilers Latest Wild Area Max Raids

    Me either, but a lot of people do; I’ve seen many comments, both here and on other forums/Reddit who want the majority of Max Raids to be like the Mewtwo event. Same goes for lot of the Nuzlock challenges. Unless you have a twitch channel or something, the only real reward is bragging rights...

    Spoilers Latest Wild Area Max Raids

    I haven’t come across one yet (I was on IoA yesterday, and seemed to be getting mostly Chancey); but I imagine they want it to be somewhat easy since there’s a promotion attached to it.

    SwSh All Purpose Trade Services! (Gen VIII)

    I have a Rash Reuniclus with Overcoat in a Dive Ball (male, lvl 60). If you still need a trade, let me know; out of your available list, I’d be interested in Turtonator or Moonball Dreepy.

    SwSh All Purpose Trade Services! (Gen VIII)

    Ah, ok. I’m cool with that. I do have both bugs (Karrablast and Shelmet). I need both for my Shield ‘dex. Let me add you to my friend list.

    Changes/Additions you would make in an update to SwSh

    I’ve been doing a replay of Kalos the last week or so; not only do I miss PSS as a function in general, but the game is constantly asking me if I want to use it. Yes, bitch, I do want to use it. But now it’s offline forever, so quit reminding me that for half a generation, we had a convenient...

    SwSh All Purpose Trade Services! (Gen VIII)

    Thanks for the offer, but I’d prefer to do trade for trade, not attempt to exploit a glitch to get them :)

    What will happen right after the Isle or Armor and the Crown Tundra original release?

    But only one generation with a “gimmick” has had a remake following the initial pair. Not that patterns are reliable with this franchise anyway, but there’s not even a pattern here yet.

    SwSh All Purpose Trade Services! (Gen VIII)

    Looking to trade a Shelmet and a Karrablast for my ‘dex in SWSH. I’m not particular on natures, levels, etc. as long as they’re legit. They’ll just be ‘dex fillers for me; if you want yours back after the evolution process, let me know beforehand. FC is 2309-6941-6404. Thanks in advance!!!

    Spoilers Sword & Shield: Expansion Pass

    I don’t do that much multi-player tbh. My bff and I occasionally do some den runs and I sometimes join in on raids with randoms. But most of the time I do dens on my own.

    What will happen right after the Isle or Armor and the Crown Tundra original release?

    It’s not a bad comparison; a lot of the Animal Crossing updates are limited time events, just like the Max Raid dens that change weekly. Granted, there are a ton of big updates in AC, while we only know of two major ones in SWSH. But both game franchises are frequently doing updates that...

    Spoilers Sword & Shield: Expansion Pass

    Ehh, that’s how some people play. Not me; I suspect I have some type of (undiagnosed) ADHD. Even games like Animal Crossing lose their charms after a month or so, until my interest is rekindled. But I have friends who can easily clock that amount of time in a game, especially if there’s an...

    Spoilers Latest Wild Area Max Raids

    What?! No. While I’m enjoying the raid, it’s still frustrating; you pretty much have to have a four live trainers (no NPCs), and either set up the raid outside of the game or hope that the other three have a moveset that compliments yours as well as being effective against whichever version of...

    Pokemon Home

    Hmm. That’s annoying then. I’ll have to look for Gengar; I haven’t come across it yet, but the Wild Area still surprises me with the level of diversity. As for the starters, I’ve never had a problem in previous games. I’d pop one up and get another within the hour. I am seeing a lot of requests...
