    Sword & Shield **Official news only** DLC Crown Tundra 22nd October

    In theory, would it be quicker to start a new file; race to Wedgehurst station and then the Crown Tundra; unlock Raid Adventures and use Necrozma to get your free Ability Patch than it would be to get the 200 Dynite Ore?

    Little things you like about Pokémon

    I'm not gonna say it makes the complaints illegitimate, but... a lot of this is very standard anime tropes which we often see in Pokémon as well. Just completely going against logic and putting all your faith in the belief that there will be a better way which you and your allies will find...

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    Yeah, it does have the clearing ability; but given it's so rare and I only ever see it once it dips to at least below half, it creates a good balance of giving a challenge while still making status moves earlier in the fight worth it -- halving their attack momentarily with Burn for instance is...

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    Interesting thing is that Raid Adventures actually provide for that. Many times I've found the best thing to do is to Will-O-Wisp or Screech; and sometimes with Rental Pokémon that's all you've got. It actually forces you to strategise and it's so much more interesting.

    I somehow got Articuno in two dives. My luck's been very fun in this game!

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    I think you're really overestimating the importance of an archaic mechanic that the vast majority of players don't know exist, and those that do know it exists are just annoyed by and gets in the way of both their enjoyment and playing the game to any serious degree. I agree that creating a...

    Sword & Shield **Official news only** DLC Crown Tundra 22nd October

    I really liked going after the birds, by the way. Articuno's illusions were a bit annoying, but I'm amazed that they finally made roaming Pokémon interesting. Turns out that when you translate Pokémon into a 3D environment where you can see the roamer in question and chase after them and have...

    Little things you like about Pokémon

    There could also be another aspect to it -- if he feels he was ignored all his life and overshadowed by someone else... he may want to shower his daughter with attention so that she always knows there's someone in her corner cheering for her. It's not too uncommon with parenting -- newer parents...

    Start from the train station. It flies right across the sea before turning around and going to the dojo; so rather than chase it, you can cycle off to the dojo first and cut it off there.

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    I was quite ready to disagree with Codra for a few reasons... but you saying this really made me realise why a lot of other RPGs do this and why it would fit Pokémon. Simulating a longer passage of time to compensate for the scaled down world makes a lot of sense.

    Pokemon Sword & Shield Isle of Armour & Crown Tundra discussion

    Not really? It would take seconds to code in a new guaranteed recipe and/or an item value for the ability patch, the magmarizer and electrizer. Similarly it's really stupid you can't buy the Magmarizer, Electrizer, Dragon Scale, Upgrade and Dubious Disc from the BP shop.
