    Wow, lucky you xD
    I just looked it up and shiny Shellder/Cloyster look nice :D Gongrats on getting them.

    Actually I ended up getting both too xD Already found two minor glitches too which I uploaded on my YouTube channel.
    So far I'm enjoying the games - too bad Misdreavus wasn't in SwSh, its evolution has good move options.
    After I finish my playthrough - and maybe after catching the legendaries - I may get some BDSP exclusive Pokemon for competitive battling.

    Also I'm fine, how are you =D
    Did you get BD as intended?
    (iirc you were gonna get BD, unless I'm remembering wrong lol)

    I had SP pre-ordered.
    I somehow managed to win the giveaway here so I got BD too now @[email protected]
    SP is physical, BD is didgital.

    Anyway I just wrapped up my shiny shellder breed, 1.200 eggs for two of them ^.^
    I also need to breed myself a second shiny Galar Darumaka, but I told myself I had to finish either the Shellder OR the G-Darumaka line before going BDSP, not both. So the second G-Darumaka is gonna have to wait till I finish my first playthrough in either BD or SP, which I will be starting tomorrow =D

    Hi, how are you? Did you get BD or SP?

    Why would people do that, I will never get that xD I think a quick Google Search can reveal if its just this shop or all of them.
    It's interesting how a few shops we knew from childhood/teenager years are no longer there.

    Sorry for not replying earlier, I got sick on Oct 29th and had to focus on getting better these days.
    Now I feel much better...still need a little to get better tho. Hope you're feeling better than me.

    Ah, reminds me of a store here called Free Record Shop, which sold mainly music but also movies and games.
    They also put the price stickers on the cases themselves.

    The shop is no longer there. Dunno if they all closed, but the one that was somewhat near here sure did lol

    Yes. The problem with this Video Game Store Shop Chain in my country was that they would stick the price tag right on the cover, which kinda sucks - the stores of the big Electric Media Entertainment Chain on the other hand didn't do that. The price tag would be put on the extra thin plastic thing that you have to unpeel to open the game, which is statisfying :3

    Last game I bought from the former mention chain on top was Sonic Mania + Sonic Forces Double Pack for the Switch. I looked at a few places, nowhere to be found except one there and when I went there, they had it in the storage without a sticker on - that was in like 2019 or something xD Otherwise there are better stores to buy new things.

    Sometimes I think that it's better to not have any pre-order/early-purchase bonus than what they give us in many games, BDSP included.
    (Sorry for the late reply, wanted to reply a few days ago but then something came inbetween and later I forgot :O)

    more stores closing =o
    There are actually kinda no game stores nearby here so I'm kinda glad I could just fill in my e-mail address and have the codes be sent to me =p

    1 of each apriball per game yea. Kinda wish there was a better pre-order bonus for BDSP, but it's ok-ish I guess xD

    Thanks, already seen that :)

    Unfortunately, I'm in one of those countries where it is in-store only...maybe because this game store chain is closing in my country, so I guess they want at least people to come in and potentially get them to buy something? Oh well, I should go and get it this week someday (hopefully).

    Not sure either, but at least we got both versions, so this shouldn't be a problem :)
    Only thing that sucks is that you'll get 2 of each Apriball if you pre-order BDSP from USA iirc (which I won't do). Hopefully they'll hand them out in other regions/ways.

    Just poking you about this in case you dunno/haven't seen yet:

    I find it funny the e-mail with codes I received seemed to imply I needed to choose between them, but gives both codes anyway. Either shiny Zacian in Shield or Shiny Zamazenta in Sword. I got both. I claimed both xD
    I also don't really see why the code would be game specific, but I didn't wanna risk it so I claimed it the way they listed it ^.^

    I would love that too but unfortunately I think they'll do the same as with Pokemon Ranger back then - if you want to have a Manaphy egg in DPPt then you have to play through a copy of Ranger. So I think that if you want an Arceus, then you have to catch one in Legends: Arceus and transfer it to BDSP. Shaymin and Darkrai may have a chance to be in-game in both versions imo, but I'm afraid that Arceus doesn't.

    Well I personally hope they'll implement the Azure Flute this time so you can for the first time legitimately catch yourself an Arceus =3
    *fingers crossed*

    As for Darkrai/Shaymin. Would be cool if they'd be a version exclusive post game catch quest. Like darkrai in either BD or SP and than shaymin in the other. Maybe a little story involving them too a la Delta Episode.
    Seems unlikely to me though, probably gonna be mystery gifts too xD

    I think this is the best way to give out Manaphy, especially since scalpers and bots are everywhere now when it comes to special editions. As I said, I hope that we'll get more in the future :)

    Boy, was I lucky during the raids from 23:15 to 00:30 - I encountered three shinies - one for each starter and managed to catch it :O Later I saw other two, but failed to catch it (that's what I expect from shinies now btw). I gotta admit tho, two of them were hosted by Shiny Den Hosters - (this one I already knew) and Kittenwitch (this one I found today). The other one was Corbin, but can't tell if he hosts shinies, didn't encounter one. Also I couldn't join two Xana Raid Battles (she hosts shinies). Oh well :O

    On a side note, I now have these three in these balls (kinda felt these common ones fit the best for them):
    - Rowlet: Nest, Dark, Net
    - Litten: Dark, Luxury, Repeat
    - Popplio: Dive, Premier, Great

    Thank you again for reminding and giving me a reason to do them tonight :)

    Hmmm. I don't remember what site it was, but it was listed as a pre-order exclusive before. Can't find it now. It's called Early Purchase bonus now. Guess they changed the wording. The wording was definitely ambigous before, but there was a graphic that clearly marked Manaphy as a Pre-purchase bonus. I now see a similar graphic that no longer says that. Well whatever xD

    Well anyway guess you don't need to pre-order for Manaphy then xD

    Yes, that was Chatots gimmick.
    Most likely but that's an interesting point - I wonder which BDSP pokemon will be able to learn a "revived" move that can't be used in SwSh.

    Sadly I don't remember that fight xD
    But I do remember Cynthia...took me like 8+ tries or so. I even had to teach my Impoleon, Luxray (and probably Dialga and Staraptor) some TMs before the battle - something I never done before up to this point in the game.

    Wait, do you have to pre-order BDSP to get Manaphy? From my understanding it will be available to everyone who goes to Mystery Gift (or something) until a certain date to obtain it for free. Also never tested that (since I never got a Manaphy), but you should be able to breed unlimited amounts of Phione with Manaphy + Ditto - I also think that Phione + Ditto won't work, Phione eggs probably need that extra hydration that they can only get with the former combo xD

    Thanks for reminding me of the Alola Starter Raid Event. I saw it and thought to myself that it is useless for me since I already have bred + EV trained them.
    But then you brought out an interesting point - I remember wanting a Primarina in a Dive Ball but couldn't get it since (as you kinda mentioned) they were only available with Pokeball. Now I can get some in balls I have plenty of (e.g. Nest, Dive, etc.) and I might do that (just to have them if needed) - thank you very much :D

    Gongrats on that Moon Ball Litten :D Maybe you'll get lucky and find the others too :)
