    Not that I've seen. It might be rare, but I'm guessing they don't appear.

    3 Stars still spawn after 8th Gym and even Champion. I keep on getting 3 Star Pumpkaboo when trying for Cursed Body Corsola... Edit: I missed the word below.

    I think I speak for everyone when I say, Thanks Anubis for all the effort you put into your research! :D I've been wanting to say that for a while, but now I have something to add. I tried Ghost Type Curse in a raid and it looked about as effective as Sandstorm or Hail. Can someone test for the...

    SPOILERS! Max Raid Discussion Thread

    I tried Ghost Type Curse and it did next to nothing, like maybe Sandstorm/Hail amount. Not worth it unless you're using one of the Grass/Ghost Types and are also using Leech Seed... On second thought, just grinding a Pokemon to Level 100 Pokemon and annihilating everything is probably an even...

    SPOILERS! Max Raid Discussion Thread

    When I read this last night, I was disappointed and admitted you were probobly right, but... It's good to be proven wrong. I know Leech Seed doesn't get removed when the Pokemon gets rid of Stat changes and Status Problems, which made me wonder if Ghost Type Curse works the same way. The only...

    Pokemon Sword & Shield Discussion RD: 15/11/2019 **Official news only**

    I'm pretty sure they do. I know the Roselia near the Tail Slap TM does and I don't see why others wouldn't. I don't think Game Freak is cruel enough to make Trade Evolution Pokemon appear in the wild and have them not respawn after accidentally KOing them.

    Super Fang made me wonder if Pain Split works. I don't have a Pain Split user, so can someone else try that? As for Toxic, it doesn't look good. When the Raid Mon does that thing that nullifies whatever, it also heals Status Problems like Poison, (but Leech Seed stays for some reason) which...

    This isn't a battle mechanic, but I still think it needs to be pointed out. Overworld Pokemon do not appear Shiny if they are until you run into them. I know that Rookidee was blue! Speaking of that beautiful (after evolution) bird... Something that happened in my playthrough makes terrains...

    Pokémon Movepool Oddities & Explanations

    Of all the mistakes Game Freak made with SwSh, they had to mess up with one of the best new Pokemon. Four new evolution chains learn Rollout and Wooloo isn't one of them. A squirrel? Sure. The Pokemon that literally rolls into its opponent when using Tackle? No.

    8th Generation Battle Tower Discussion & Records

    You... you can't be serious... >:( Starting to wish I kept waiting for the third version even after I knew it probably wasn't happening. Passive-aggressive attempt at optimism: I knew some people would stick to the Battle Tree because of Dexit, so I guess this keeps the Tower/Tree community...

    SPOILERS! Pokemon Sword and Shield Datamine Thread

    In addition to this, I'm pretty sure they're making it so no new Pokemon completely outclasses any old ones, like original Linoone, unless they were already outclassed. (even ones that were cut) Galaran Corsola is a stupidly bulky Ghost Type with Evolite, like Dusclops, but Corsola learns...

    SPOILERS! Pokemon Sword and Shield Datamine Thread

    Dusclop has Trick Room and Corsola doesn't, so Dusclops isn't entirely outclassed. If you're thinking doubles becasue of Trick Room, I've got even more good news for Dusclops. He learns Helping Hand, unlike Corsola. I'd say it's Corsola for Pure Defense in Singles, Dusclops for Trick Room and...

    Don't know if they can be watts, but I know I saw them on sale for Battle Points. Probably just the Battle Tower.

    SPOILERS! Pokemon Sword and Shield Datamine Thread

    I don't know, but the best case scenario causes panic at first glance because you don't see it immediately. The worst case scenario, on the other hand, will make me sharpen my pitchfork. Best case scenario: How it was before Gen 5. (The first 20 battles were easy then if became like super...

    Well that ain't abusable with Rush Abilities Honestly, I'm just using this as an excuse to point out the Fossil Pokemon's Egg Group, Undiscovered. If being based on the results of incompetent early archeology and needing two completely different fossil halves to create weren't enough to...

    They gave Zacain 170 Attack and an ability that boosts Attack, so I don't think they cared about balance that much.

    SPOILERS! Pokemon Sword and Shield Datamine Thread

    Are you seriously saying an octopus not getting one punching move is as big a fail in flavor and usefulness as the ****ing Shield Pokemon not getting the one Defense based attack?
