So, one thing I’ve really enjoyed about this game is the “reaction” animations after you beat random trainers. My favorite has to be the female swimmers; the curled fist and gritted teeth make even the most banal dialogue hilarious.

Yeah, totally agree to this. Thought the same when I noticed that when I got my 3ds and Y/Omega Ruby in early 2020. I always especially liked those female backpackers that were knocked over by the power of my team XD

I remember reactions, just not specific ones from those games; but they really do add to the sense of satisfaction of beating the trainers. Even if they do just have Geodudes and Magicarps.

That one fisherman in one of the games (I don't remember which game specifically) who suddenly pulls a fast one and suddenly sends out a gyarados
I meant the one with 6 Magikarp for a team
There's always one fisherman with 6 Magikarp
Edit: Except in GSC, also there's one there that sends out 3 Gyarados and one in RSE that leads with Magikarp and has 5 Gyarados, the trend of one fisher having 6 Magikarp started again (first time was in RBY) was in FRLG

I was aware about the 6 magikarp fisherman, but there is also a fisherman who has (not quite sure about the numbers) 2-4 Magikarp and one Gyarados. But like I said, I don't have the slightest idea in which game, I'm not even sure on which system :D

Come to think about it - could also been in a ROM hack so it's possible that it was never even in an official game to begin with :X3:
Nope. The "5 Gyarados and 1 Magikarp guy" is real. I think he was on the route that leads to the Victory Road.

@EmCeeChupi @prog rocker
So now I got curious and did some research while the board was down for maintenance and...
There is a fisherman on Route 127 with 3 Magikarps (on Ruby/Sapphire, 2 on Emerald) and a Gyarados.
On route 218 there is a fisherman with 5 Magikarps and one Gyarados (except for Platinum, they replaced the Magikarps with Remoraids).
Another one is on route 34, using two Magikarps and a Gyarados (Heartgold/Soulsilver, on Gold/Silver/Crystal he has two of each).

And finally, there is a fisherman who flipped the script and uses one Magikarp and 5 Gyarados on route 132 (Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald).

I didn't know that there were maintenance periods for BG
This is probably why both the board and BP randomly go down and reset the connection

I really wonder when (or maybe even if) they start distributing the event items for Shaymin, Darkrai, and Arceus.
I think they'll do it eventually. I think they did the right thing to move the event areas from the game for now, though, so that people can't get to them prematurely.

I'm rather worried that BDSP will be kinda left behind when L:A will be released - doesn't have to happen, but I prefer considering this as a possible scenario rather than just l believing that everything will be fine. Guess I'm to negative when it comes to that kinda things.

I'm really liking this game so far! I'm a little disappointed that the Platinum extension isn't included--I'm guessing Platinum Pokemon might show up in Pokemon Legends Arceus--but I'm having a lot of fun, and the sprites are so adorable. I'm also happy to have gained three mythical Pokemon--especially Manaphy, which I've wanted for a long time. Distributions are the best! <3 Everyone in my team except my starter--Clefairy, Mew, Jirachi, Manaphy, and Pachirisu--are "cute" Pokemon. And my Grotle is kind of like their bodyguard, hehe.
