    Yeah every gen has great mons as well as total duds for me too.
    And sometimes mons I'm initially indifferent on end up among my favorites later, like with Indeedee. First time I saw it I just went 'oh generic looking humanoid mon... meh'. Then in postgame I have them follow me around in the IoA.... I saw their butler/maid animations and was sold on them =P I mean, it immediately gave them way more character for me.

    The newly revealed Transportation related Pokemon, Cyclizar, actually looks better than both the box art legendaries to me =P

    Do you currently have your eyes set on any starter in particular?
    Currently I think I'll be going with Sprigatito... but it might change once I see what it evolves into =3

    Spiked shoes at the ready 😈

    I feel exactly the same about the covers and the respective mons tbh. I would normally take violet because I took blue vs red etc etc but I know my OH hates the look of Scarlet so idk for sure.

    Yeah people tend to say X generation's Pokémon were poor, but every generation has some truly wonderful ones too.

    I will definitely get gen 9 either way though. I guess that's the sign of addiction...

    I saw this, but forgot to reply D=

    I'm fine, just kinda swamped with things to do atm >.>
    I've always picked my game based on the cover art legendary in the past... which I'm going to have to deviate from, as I care little for either tbh, though Miraidon does look a bit better to me than the other one. They just look like transportation to me, making it hard to see them as anything else =P
    I'll probably wait to see what the version exclusives are and go from there.

    I am still looking forward to it though. There has yet to be a Pokemon game that doesn't have any new favorite Pokemon for me, so I'm looking forward to finding them =D

    Oh, and best wishes ofc! Make sure you put on some nice pointy/spiky football shoes while kicking back 😉 😁

    I'm not doing particularly well in all honesty, which is my I've taken so long to reply to this.

    I'm deeply sorry for that btw.

    Things I have no control over have been kicking my derriere, but I will do everything in my power to come out on top :)


    How have you been my friend? Are you looking forward to the new Pokémon games? Which one would you most likely get?

    A Drifloon, which is also a yellowish shiny lol
    Can't help but notice a pattern xD

    Keep in mind you can see if a mon is shiny in the overworld =p In the normal games you can't tell if a mon is shiny from the overworld... so who knows how many you pass by without knowing (I always ask myself this when I pass by the overworld mons in SwSh... especially since I've bumped into like 4 or 5 shinies by accidentally bumping into overworld mons in SwSh rofl)

    Except for the Shinx, I caught the rest because I saw the sparkly effect from afar and dropped what I was doing to go catch the shiny xD
    Especially for mons with shinies that don't stand out (like Bidoof).... I definitely would've missed it if not for the sparkly effect.

    But yea, people are getting lots of shinies in this game. Most people are getting them from outbreaks, which are just flat out broken lol
    -Default odds: 1 in 4096.
    -Dex of Level 10 for a Pokemon: 1 in 2048
    -Perfect Dex Entry: 1 in 1024
    -Mass Outbreak: 1 in 158
    -Dex of 10 + Mass Outbreak (for that Pokemon): 1 in 152
    -Perfect Dex for a Pokemon + Mass Outbreak (for that Pokemon): 1 in 141

    As you can see, you get broken as heck odds without even having to complete the Dex entry for a mon, just because it's an outbreak xD

    Personally I haven't done any outbreaks yet. I got one triggered, but need the water mount to get to it. My 4 shinies have all been at Dex level 10 or Perfect Dex.
    I still haven't gotten the guaranteed shiny ponyta either lol

    That is very cool! Have you found any more since?

    I'm a bit worried about how easy it seems to get them in PLA tbth, it's already a little too easy in the modern mainline games imo

    I love having multiple mons out at the same time in Legends Arceus. I got my current 3 shinies (literally caught my 3rd like 5-10 minutes ago by now) sitting with me =3
    Spoiler:


    The Bidoof is hard to tell tbh xD

    I do like how all 3 of them + me are yellow-ish and orange :coolcat:

    (apparently I didn't reply.... oops 😅)

    I am definitely enjoying it.
    Shinies feel too easy in this game though lol
    Earlier I was just going around fainting mons in order to level up a research task where I need to use a certain move on Umbreon.
    While walking around I see a sparkly effect in the distance.... that indicates a shiny. I didn't see it last time with Shinx since it spawned behind me lol
    I was just like 'Wait? AGAIN?!'

    So uh... I got a shiny Bidoof now lol
    Not the most exciting shiny, ngl. Shinx's bright orange pops way more =D
    But a shiny is a shiny ^.^

    Also for foreign Ditto's... I played Sword & Shield in French and German on my child account for foreign dittos... and then never did anything with them rofl

    Omg @ Shinx!!! That is just adorable!!! How are you enjoying PLA so far?

    Flame Body is an absolute necessity imo. We should camp outside GF's office btw and demand that home support!

    I have been catching German Dittos in Crystal lately, because I quite simply don't trust foreign Dittos from the internet. Mine is Japanese and I've had it forever, but I can never be absolutely sure it wasn't hacked. I guess it doesn't matter from a breeding point of view, but I'm annoying like that, so I decided to do something about it 😅

    Yeah I'm gonna wait till I can use my foreign ditto lol It's like roughly 4 times better in terms of odds lol

    It really didn't take that long to breed though. I got my Magmortar with Flame Body to speed things up =3
    And leveling up is pretty easy with switch training in the Gran Underground.

    On a different note (bit of a brag I suppose), but I got this little one yesterday on my first day of playing Legends, only a couple hours in:
    Spoiler:


    I was battling Shinxes for a research task, turn around and saw that orange little Shinx. I was totally not prepared for a shiny yet lol
    Luckily I still had some balls and caught it =D

    I would have sent you more than one egg if I'd known you were completing a living dex! 😅

    And omg... it is soooooooo cute <3

    Just done some research.

    It seems in Gen 8 it's roughly 1/2048 for hatching with a normal parent and a Shiny Charm

    Masuda without Shiny Charm: 1/682

    Masuda with Shiny Charm: 1/512

    I will definitely try that ty!!!

    Yeah I got the egg charm a while ago as Breeding in this game is kind of slow and I was breeding mons to swap version exclusives lol
    Even with the egg charm it feels slow before they find an egg xD
    SwSh spoiled me with dual Daycares and way more room to bike around in...

    And no.... all I can find are the odds with a foreign ditto with and without the shiny charm. I'm not in a rush to starts shiny breeding per se though... think I'm gonna start Legends tomorrow ^.^

    Np... try taking it out of it's ball and having it follow you =3
    I did that with my PokeBall Plus Mew in LGE and thought it was pretty cute ^.^
