I have learned why it was hard for me to find Pichu in the Trophy Garden. I was playing in the middle of the day (when they only have a 10% spawn rate), and it is more common in the morning (30%).

I'll pass for now, missed that there was a new cloning trick discovered so I'll try to dupe that damn mystery shards.

Edit: Turns out mystery shards can't be hold by pokemon :bulbaFacepalm:

Sooner than I expected for Arceus. Cool.

You need Legends data for Arceus, which I kinda expected. And apparently need to have both games beat.

Do I get it right that this means there is no time limit for Arceus?
And I think the statement about Darkrai is a little vague - does between the new moons imply a mystery gift with limited time (around a month I guess) like with Shaymin or will the members card be distributed every month during the new moon phase (which would be rad but I guess that's pretty unlikely)?

As far as I understand, yeah, Arceus has no time limits. You've just needed to complete the main and post-game stories in Legends and obtained the National Dex in BDSP. As for Darkrai, "between new moons" means from April 1 to May 1.

It says the update went live at 6PM PDT yesterday which would be sometime in the middle of the night where I live (EST timezone), I think, but I still have not gotten the update for this. I made a thread about it. I really want to get Arceus and later Darkrai, so I'm angry.

I cannot believe I’ve just gone on to play BD for the first time in forever to find my Pokémon have contracted the Pokerus!! I didn’t realise it was still a thing.
that's pretty amazing. i've only ever contracted pokerus once through a trade. still cultivating that one infection i got back in gen 4. you're very lucky to get it through regular gameplay.

I’ve never encountered a shiny (bar in Lets Go) so I’m quite shocked that it’s happened! It’s a shame I don’t play competitively it would have been great for me!
