I do think it is odd that they let you go on Dynamax Adventures at that point, even though I understand the broader decision to let players access the Tundra itself right away despite its blatantly post-game level design. That said, I suspect that most people won't take advantage of this since it's not very intuitive. But I'm also not really one to tell people how they should play. If someone wants early-game Legendaries, then I say go for it. It's their playthrough.Does anyone else find it odd how, thanks to Dynamax Adventures, you can now catch Legendaries before even reaching the first Gym? That's like finding a Mewtwo in Viridian Forest! The Isle of Armor works really well as a supplement to the main story, but I think the Crown Tundra, with its high-level battles and heavy focus on Legendaries, should have been strictly a postgame area.
This isn't the first time that this has been possible, either - in B2W2, you could receive any of the Dream Radar Legendaries before earning the first Badge (not to mention the Lv15 Genesect they distributed at launch), and in HGSS, if you had an event Arceus, you could claim one of the Sinjoh Ruins dragons before beating the Violet City Gym.
