    Btw, in case you see this before the event ends. There's a Max raid event going this weekend for Alola starters:

    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

    Oh boi...can't believe you're still alive after all that xD If so then you must be kinda exhausted lol
    Good choice, just in case you want to use it in the future.

    Haha, beware. They might unite with other abandoned Sandshrews and start a riot :O
    So, which evolution line will you target next? Oh and btw...will you do this with certain Pkmn that are only obtainable in 8th Gens BDSP?

    Phew... second shiny Alola Sandshrew today. another 900 eggs, so 3000 total for both.
    Was starting to get extremely bored doing this breed near the end there @[email protected]
    One of them had a 'No Good' Sp Def stat which seemed kinda bad, so I evolved the other one into Sandslash xD

    Yes. many orphans are left by shiny breeders and IV/nature breeders =p
    2998 poor Alolan sandshrews are now orphans because they weren't shiny xD

    I see. Good point, since this is made as a place for people with the same/similar goals to easier meet with eachother and helping eachother out to accomplish their goals :)

    Oh boi, so many abandoned Pokemon just because they were not the colour your colourist xD
    But then again, how many have I abandoned just because they weren't the IVs/Nature/Ability/Gender I wanted to :O

    2100 eggs bred/hatched so far.
    Got my first of 2 shiny alolan sandshrews today in the last round of 150 I did. Was about dang flippin time xD
    *crosses fingers and hopes the second isn't gonna take another 2100*

    Well I registered here at the time to complete the PokeDex.
    mainly for version exclusives + trade evos.
    The risk of thieves is so much lower when you set up a trade with someone on a forum and specify beforehand whether or not you want it back =)

    Oh boi, what a troll xD But yeah, that kinda sucks, especially if you get one of your favourites out during a trade evolution, only to be snatched by a thief.

    I see - well I assume that so far everything went as planned for you in this gen (= no thiefs)
