I haven't done too much lately due to having to help my mom after her surgery but I do have some bits to report.

For starters I finally got my Weavile. I had forgotten that you could just buy a Razor Claw from the merchant who trades Merit Points for certain items. So, when the lightbulb finally went off I just grabbed one of my regular Johtoian Sneasels, bought a Razor Claw, and rested until nightfall to evolve it. Poof! Instant Weavile. Can't believe I forgot about that merchant. And here I was stockpiling Merit Points and forgetting what they were used for.

Anyway, I also went to the Alabaster Icelands to try to find Tornadus but since he doesn't show up during Massive Mass Outbreaks I decided to make use of the time and finally get a Wyrdeer. So I took my strongest Stantler (one that would know Psyshield Bash) and grinded it on a couple of MMOs, specifically Gastly and Machop. I guess you could say I was... "Bashing through the snow. In a one Stantler open sleigh. Over the fields I go. Laughing all the way." ...I stop now. But, anyway, in all seriousness after using those Gastly, Machops, and the occasional Haunter, I used Agile Style Psyshield Bash enough times to get my Wyrdeer. So that's two more Mons off my checklist. I also caught a few more Alphas, most notably Alpha H-Sneasel and Alpha H-Avalugg, both of which I didn't have yet.

After the MMOs ended another blizzard appeared and I started to search for that blasted nature genie but couldn't find him. I guess I need to come back when there isn't anything else going on in the area to find him and his stormy counterpart (I already have Landorus who I stumbled upon by chance while looking for something else). But both of those Forces of Nature, and their new sister, are next on my checklist, as I pretty much have everything else in terms of the dex (sans Arceus itself, obviously). But they'll have to wait until next time.

I did most of the Ursaluna line, now I just need to finish Ursaluna itself to perfect the entire line. After which I will move on to the next Pokemon line to be perfected.

Postgame update: I've almost completed the dex; only some Legendary Pokémon are left. Defeated the post-game boss. My team:
Columbo the Typhlosion
Ranger the Weavile
Skatha the Garchomp (alpha)
Gorochu the Raichu (alpha)
Merlin the Alakzam
Miles the Floatzel (alpha)
All had the important effort levels at 10
I led with Skatha, who took out Spiritom fairly easily. Volo sent in Togekiss. Skatha lands a Poison Jab then goes down. Gorochu comes in, uses Calm Mind then a Thunderbolt to KO. Volo sends in Garchomp who uses Earth Power, Gorochu survives thanks to EVs+Calm Mind. I switch in Miles, who uses Bulk Up and Ice Punch to KO Garchomp.
Volo sends in Roserade, who uses Petal Dance. Miles tanks it then uses agile Ice Punch+Ice Punch to KO.
Volo uses Lucario who KOs Miles. Columbo switches in and takes them with a Flamethrower. Arcanine comes in and hits, Columbo switches out for Gorochu, who uses Calm Mind+Strong Thunderbolt to win.

Giratina comes. I mess up and use strong thunderbolt, it paralyzes.
Giratina misses like five turns to Paralysis while Gorochu takes them with varying Agile Thunderbolts and Iron Tails. Giratina revives in Origin form and knocks out Gorochu.
Ranger shows up but misses thanks to Giratina being concealed. She gets two good Night Slashes in but goes down to Aura Sphere. The Concealment fades, Columbo comes in and KOs with a Strong Shadow Ball.

I have finally perfected the Lickytung line, only three more lines to go before catching Azelf as well as the rest to the Unown I haven't yet caught in the Crimson Mirelands.

Also starting to dread the Cobalt Coastlands because it's so hard to surprise swimming Pokemon.

Just perfected the entire Turtwig line, the only ones left are Gastly and Murkrow lines before doing a general cleanup of the Crimson Mirelands.

Finally done all of Crimson Mirelands, that means that the Gastly and Murkrow lines are perfected, caught all of the Unown of the area, and finally caught Azelf.

Now comes the inevitable Cobalt Coastlands starting with the most annoying Pokemon line to perfect: the Quilfish line.

With the new update for HOME coming (just a few hours now), I decided to jump back into the game after another hiatus to finish the Dex and obtain the Shiny Charm. I managed to finish this achievement on Saturday night. The last completion was Shaymin, the last non-Mythical was Regigigas, and the last non-special was Overqwil. I also caught a Shiny Munchlax in a mass outbreak while working on the Dex, and a Shiny Tentacool shortly after obtaining the Charm.

Currently, I'm working on perfecting entries, and have just perfected Gligar. Aipom will likely be the last, given the need to find 15 of them in trees; I'm currently at 2/15.

Started the Cobalt Coastlands, got lucky with the Quilfish line being surprisingly quick, and now doing the Spheal line with Spheal and Sealeo now perfected. Taught my Walrein Rock Smash so I don't have to rely on Pokemon I caught in the Crimson Mirelands (because I moved on from that area completely).

After such a long perfecting process on the Cobalt Coastlands, every Pokemon before the Machamp line (which was perfected a long time ago as part of the Obsidian Fieldlands dex) has finally been perfected. Chatot is the next Pokemon that will be perfected.

(My 1st playthrough) Defeated Electrode today. Also, a Very curious happening...

Before that I was in the marshlands hunting for alpha Petilil. There was also a Murkrow swarm so I also went for it and caught a shiny one!

Soon as I get back to town, there's a Staraptor swarm in the fieldlands. And guess what else I found? A shiny Ponyta!
Not the one from the quest--I actually have two now in the same game.

I put aside my "raise every shiny" rule for guaranteed ones, but I also like using only new mons in the first run, and now I wonder if I should give up on Arcanine AND Braviary this time
