    Just poking you about this in case you dunno/haven't seen yet: https://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=459875

    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 - thtable.com (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

    https://diamondpearl.pokemon.com/en-us/shop/manphy-bonus/

    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 :)

    Btw, in case you see this before the event ends. There's a Max raid event going this weekend for Alola starters:
    https://www.serebii.net/swordshield/maxraidbattles/eventden-alolastarterevent.shtml

    This is pretty big and idk if I'll ever get the chance to put Alola starters in apriballs again, so I've already went and caught as many I could with the Balls I still had. Luckily I never used my main account Sword's playthrough Special Balls at all =D (only got 2 remaining now xD)

    Basically I'd like each in 3 different special balls. I caught a Litten in a Sport Ball I still had in Shield first. Then I went into Sword and caught: Fast Ball Litten, Moon & Friend Ball Rowlet, Lure, Love & Dream Ball Popplio.
    I also want a Moon Ball Litten and Safari Ball Rowlet, but don't have those balls atm. Guess I'll have to attempt to trade for those later.

    Edit: well made a thread for it and already got the Moon Ball HA Litten now ^.^

    that gimmick was talking into the microphone and then chatot would say it right?
    The moves will probably return, but any mons that can go into Sw/Sh will probably just have that yellow exclamation thingy again saying they can't use the move and you need to make it forget it.

    Purugly is a beast to fight against in the early game lol
    I remember really struggling against it. Don't think I wiped against it, but I'm pretty sure it got me close at least once.

    Yea. For BDSP I wanna make sure I pre-order both so I can get 2 Manaphy's =3
    Technically I already have a Manaphy from the 20th anniversary, but I sent that to Home not knowing I could breed the dang thing for a Phione. I found out about that later the same day and was just like 'Y U DO DIS TO ME' xD
    Anyway I was hoping that Manaphy would be able to go into BDSP, but completely new ones works fine too ofc xD Not sure how Manaphy breeidng works exactly, just that you need ditto. I'm curious if I can only breed 1 Phione from a Manaphy or if I can just keep going and flood the world with them xD

    RIP Chatots DS gimmick btw :(

    I really wonder which "deleted moves" (= excluded from SwSh) will return. Hidden Power has to return for Unown.
    And I wish that Silver Wind returns too - Finneon/Lumineon were the only Water-Type Pokemon to know this move, which made them unique (usually a number of Bug Types knew this)

    Pachirisu even won a Pkmn World Championship tourney btw xD It suprised everyone back in 2016 or earlier (according to False Swipe Gaming), not quite sure haha.
    Can't wait to see how (you and) I will do against Mars's famous Purugly xD

    What's also good of having two versions is that you can double-dip on Mystery Gifts :D
    I hope that they will offer more of the ones that are hard/impossible to catch (legendaries/mythicals) and a big variety, just like back in the day of DPPt.

    chatot on the team huh.. that's definitely a challenge xD
    Pachirisu would probably still be an decent mon though ^.^

    but anyway yea, I mainly use new/unused mons for additional runs on game or remakes because I don't enjoy mindlessly spamming the same mons over & over xD

    I wonder if they'll keep the same version exclusives as the original DP.
    Glameow/purugly was a Pearl exclusive, which is atm the version I've pre-ordered (haven't yet ordered BD ,as I also entered the giveaway this forums is doing and you never know =p)
    If it is still a Pearl exclusive I'd be playing pearl first since I need to catch one in an apriball and attempt to shiny breed it =p

    So you'll start with the latter version after you finished the former version - interesting.

    Same with me (with what you use for the first version, except Empoleon) - if I would use the same mons like back in the day (Empoleon, Staraptor, Luxray) things wouldn't be kinda fun. Also I kinda had my shot with most of the Gen 4 Pokemons in SwSh, so I really want to get back to using Pokemons I could've used before DPPt, especially 2nd Gen Pokemon (like Ampharos, Murkrow/Honchkrow and others) but didn't (because I was a cheap child relying partly/mostly on legendaries back then xD). Maybe I'll also use some non-evolutions for my second playthrough like Chatot and Pachirisu just to make things interesting and a bit more harder xD

    I really wanna use a Purugly tbh. It's a cat mon I've never used which is just criminal xD
    Since I'll be having apriballs, what I'll likely do is catch a Glameow or Purugly in one, attempt to complete the dex for shiny charm and then attempt to shiny breed it for the other version playthrough xD

    So anyway yea, playthrough 1 is just gonna be random mons I've never used before, non special. Than the other version I'll do with also preferably mons I've never used before, but probably shiny bred =3

    Nice choice :) You can always feed a Max Soup anytime but not remove it anymore once it is done. If you may plan to transfer a few shinies to BDSP then it may be a good idea to see if such Gigantamax-Pkmn can be transferred and if they lose their form or not.

    I guess you can call this destiny xD
    Well, there is enough time until then :) As for me, I may want to use certain pokemon for BD that were unobtainable in SwSh, and on SP...maybe I'll use the same + mostly overlooked two-stage-evolution pokemon like Lumineon, Kricketune and other...or I may go for Memeon only (like Kricketune, Furret and other xD)

    I'll be doing Level Ball eevee for an unevolved eevee next, in continuation of my ongoing Eevee family shiny breed, all in different special balls (Eevee, Umbreon and Leafeon still remain). May or may not feed it max soup for a shiny G-max level ball eevee, haven't decided on this part yet.
    I already stuck it in the daycare, but I decided to take today and tomorrow off from breeding to catch my breath xD

    Speaking of BDSP. The stores here added their own pre-order offer. Which is a code for a full set of apriballs xD
    So apparently BDSP will have apriballs =3
    It is tempting to breed a shiny team in advance for a playthrough. May already have a team member too since I already shiny bred for a Love Ball Lopunny ^.^
    Haven't quite decided on whether or not to do this yet, but I am considering it =p
