    Sky is widely regarded as the best MD game. I really want to give it a try. I know I said it already but the music is incredible.

    It's been so long since I played Blue I don't remember any of the dungeons sorry! I only really remember the evolution place the town and the mountain top with Skarmory.

    Ah, sadly I have no familiarity with Stadium... it's always been handhelds with me!!
    I love Red Rescue Team/Blue Rescue Team the most of the MD games. I did love Super Mystery Dungeon, but not in quite the same way. I finally played Explorers of Time a couple of months ago. I like it, but the changes to the IQ functions bothers me!! I was gonna get Sky originally, but I could NOT find a copy of it under $100, which seems BIZARRE. I couldn't justify such a price, so I just got Time instead. ^^;
    I recently completed Purity Forest (Celebi's dungeon in Red/Blue) for the second time ever. That place is just a nightmare. "I'm doing Purity Forest, because I hate myself." Had to use passwords to rescue myself... multiple, multiple times. Lol. It's the only way it's doable, IMO.
    I did find 3 Tight Belts though, which was extremely pleasing.

    Not as many as I'd like. I've played all through blue rescue and a chunk of Explorers of Darkness. I really want to get my hands on Explorers of Sky though because the music is amazing and I hear so many good things about it.

    Stadium has the best minigames and nothing will change my mind xD

    Yeah, plus Rotom got much more annoying in USUM. Though only because I indulged him with his damn Roto Loto.......
    Yeah, I was pretty sad when the Berry Blender mini-game was absent in ORAS. I love a lot of the mini-game things in Pokémon games it seems. The other day I played the Amie minigames for the first time in quite a while. I always loved them. I pride myself on having gotten 5 stars in unlimited mode tile puzzle, lol.
    Have you played any Mystery Dungeon games?

    All good haha. I really liked Gen 7 - that being said while the added content in USUM was great, the story was better in SM by far though.

    Hell no, nothing was wrong about that. Berry Blend was great.

    Oh, sorry. Yeah, it was a bit odd, the story... or lack thereof. I played Sword, I do rate the game over Gen 7's games in a lot of ways... ultimately I can at least say I don't regret buying a Switch Lite to play the game.
    Soon it'll be back to my constant playing of the Gen 3, 4 & 5 games. Those, I can't get enough of apparently.
    Is it bad that I still get people to Berry Blend PokéBlocks with me via link cable? LOL.

    I haven't been able to get my hands on SwSh yet, although I'll be getting Sword when I do most likely. Money has been a bit tight between expenses and Christmas shopping. I'm really looking forward to it though, the visuals looks stunning and I've heard a lot of good things about it... except for the story which I hear really goes down hill towards the end.

    The heat just gets to me, I'm so much more motivated when it's cooler!
    What's your favourite thing in Sword/Shield? I'm obsessed with camping, lol. I love getting to stop fights between my bickering party members, haha. And their faces when anticipating the first spoonful of curry just crack me up every time. As does Cramorant's shtick. :D

    Fair haha
    It's weird because I've only encountered really nice people so far :')

    Oh I complain more in the Winter haha. I actually really like warm weather for the most part, it's just the ludicrously hot days I have issues with. Honestly I never used to have issues with either extreme then one day it was like a switch was flipped.

    I'd say the same about where I live. It's fine, I just wouldn't go walking near the shops at night, I'll put it that way. :)
    Glad you agree re. the temperatures. Today I'm all "Ahhhh, what a novelty, the air con doesn't have to be used. It's a pity it won't last."
    I never complain about it being cold in winter because, let's face it, WA doesn't actually know "cold". And the cooler times do not last. At all.
    Gripe, gripe, gripe. :p

    Neither am I lmao. I recently moved to this neighbourhood and there's been so many serious road crimes and a shooting all not far from me :')
    It's mostly pretty nice though weirdly, despite that.

    I know! "It's [insert insane weather here] but there's no climate change!" is a frequent sarcastic refrain in my family. It was only a decade or so ago that 40 degree days were a rarity now from late Spring to early Autumn they seem to be the norm.

    Ahaha, I do not live in a fancy suburb!
    Yeah, things just get worse and worse and no one seems to seriously care. When it was 30 degrees in August, I was like, "Does no one else find this EXTREMELY CONCERNING"

    ooo nice. Most of the fancy suburbs are South. I'm north of the river myself.
    I know! I've barely been able to do anything. It's like the moment we crossed from Spring to Summer a switch was thrown to "maddening heat".

    Yes, south of the river.
    Erhem. Excuse me.

    I met one other person from here also, but that was years ago. I don't even remember who it was haha.

    If you don't mind me asking, are you in Perth as well?
