To keep up with the hype driven by Sword and Shield's release, we are taking applications for new moderators in our Current Events: Sword and Shield as well as Anime and Manga sections.
For more information, see this thread.We hope you all consider joining our team!
We hope you're enjoying Sword and Shield so far! So that everyone can enjoy it and not be spoiled, please keep the all story spoilers and any images from the games in the appropriate sections or in spoiler tags until January 3rd.
Since spoiler tags are not allowed in signatures, please do not put images from the games in your signature either. You can list the names of new Pokémon if you want to list your team in your signature.
Sweet, thanks! I really hope this is true. I’ve been trying the raid exploit to generate a Cleffa for a while with no luck so I want to make sure I’m not on a wild goose chase lol. Hopefully this is true for one star raids as well as two star.
Hmm I’m wondering if maybe it’s just really rare, though? It’s the only way to encounter Pichu, Cleffa, and Wynaut in the wild without breeding which is why I’m interested. But if someone could tell me for sure that would be much appreciated.
It’s not something to agree or disagree with lol. It’s a fact that they are a marketing company being blamed for all of SwSh’s development issues. Again: GF owns a third of TPCi. Creatures—the company who does all the Pokémon modeling—also owns a third of it. If the games had been delayed, TPCi...
That depends entirely on how much time there is between games. Personally, I paid for Bank several times anyway because you couldn’t trade from Gen 6 to Gen 7 without it. Again, this wouldn’t change much.
We have no idea if the GTS will be relegated to Home. But who knows how they will...
Ehh, is this really such a big deal? Just use your volume controls on the TV or Switch until you get the item (is it at least obtainable early on?). I never really had much need to separate music/sounds volume on my switch very often anyway, though I can’t speak for everyone.
I agree which is why I would think most people would have enough sense not to even bother with Home until those other games come out. What’s the difference between sitting in a PC in Alola and sitting in Home in the meantime? To be fair, we have yet to find out.
People would have used Home either way if Bank was any indication. In fact, if people realize that sending Pokémon into Home means you can’t get them back if they aren’t in SwSh, they might be less inclined to use it.
But yeah, my main point was that it’s not as if TPCi has GameFreak under...
I did say “little to none”. I don’t doubt they might have some influence but they certainly are not calling any shots or making any demands. If anything, they would have have been vehemently against Dexit: it’s a marketing and PR nightmare. But in the end, it’s not their call.
Y’all do realize that TPCi is a marketing and licensing company, right? They likely have little to no say in the developmental decisions of the game. That’s not their job. Their job is to market and sell what they’re given. In fact, they exist literally because of GameFreak’s product. If anyone...
I’ve only listened to a few of the officially released tracks but the Toby Fox theme has me extremely hyped and I’ve been hearing great things about the rest of the OST. Ugh I can’t wait to hear the wolf theme!!
