    Bug Reports v3 [READ ORIGINAL POST before posting]

    It would seem like Battle Spot Doubles just ignore Gigantamaxes and Dynamax happens every time instead. Seems like a big problem that needs to be fixed.

    ^I believe Max Guard never fails, right? Wasting a Dynamax turn is already drawback enough.

    ^Sounds like people just use "Give" and "Use" randomly and expect it to work either way. The apples are like evolutionary stones, you don't give them to Pokémon to hold.

    Wait, what? Just reset for the purple beam, then save the game, enter the Raid, check Ability, reset if not a Hidden Ability, change date while inviting online, check again, rinse repeat. One Wishing Piece required.

    Just use Silvally. For everything. It handles everything. As a Hidden Hunter myself, here's what I do: 1. seek out HA-possible spawns of the right Pokémon here. Not every den with the Pokémon can spawn a HA Pokémon of that species. 2. spawn the right beam with a Wishing Piece at the right den...

    Pokémon Stonjourner

    This thing needs to set up Rock Polish, then switch Wonder Room on and off depending on the opponent. Add sandstorm to the mix for the SpD boost and it's... not worth all the trouble still, huh. I like this thing, but they didn't even have the decency to pull the Trick Room trigger on it; this...

    Incorrect. You must've used a den that was spawned naturally. Wishing Pieces are necessary for the trick, otherwise the pillar of light indeed vanishes after a date change.

    Pokémon Eiscue

    This is probably a horrible idea coming from a mostly casual player, but what are the odds that a Weakness Policy + Agility set will catch people off-guard? My assumption is that people would assume Eiscue helpless if it isn't hit with a physical attack, then use a special one, only to activate...

    Not exactly a competitive question, but do we know it the Antique form Sinistea are only available in the wild or if they can hatch from eggs? And if they can, do the parent(s) have to be Antique as well? Also, how's about Raid boss Sinistea/Polteageist, can those be either form?

    Do we know whether Sinistea's Antique form can only be found in the wild or can it hatch from eggs? And if it can, does the parent/s have to be legit too or can a Phony Sinistea/Polteageist produce an Antique kid?

    Once a den spawns, the IVs, Ability and I believe nature and gender are all decided up-front.

    Has anyone tested whether the "Time Travelling" breeding method works in Sword&Shield?

    Anyone knows if we can infect other players' Pokémon with Pokérus if we use an infected Pokémon in a Raid battle?

    SPOILERS! Max Raid Discussion Thread

    I can confirm that Silvally has been doing wonders for me. Only problem? Joining online Raids hosted by others. I can't switch items when I'm choosing my Pokémon, meaning I can only hope to get lucky and happen upon a Raid Boss weak to the type Silvally is at that very moment.

    SPOILERS! Max Raid Discussion Thread

    Do we have somewhere a list of moves that straight-up don't work against Raid Bosses? I know weight-based ones fail, as well as Knock Off, but I'd like to know all of them. I suspect ones like Trick/Switcheroo or Covet/Thief might also fail? Can't imagine Super Fang being allowed either.

    It matters, absolutely. Don't use Heavy Balls though, Dynamax Pokémon have no programmed weight, so it fails pretty much by default. Quite counter-intuitive.

    Being post-game, I don't seem to be able to happen upon ☆ or ☆☆ Raids at all. The lowest I get are ☆☆☆ ones. Do we know whether the game gives you a minimum or if that's just a coincidence?

    Do we know the odds of acquiring Hidden Abilities in Raid Battles? Are there any ways of influencing those? Do they show in "normal" battles or only the rare "purple beam" ones? Also, can Synchronize affect the nature of Raid bosses?

    Any changes to the breeding mechanics? Does inheriting Abilities and natures and Poké Balls and moves work exactly the same as Gen VII still? Of course the question barely matters, since breeding is almost irrelevant now, who needs that perfect Ditto. With enough BPs (which are way quicker to...
