So I’ve done exactly what I said I’d do last time. I reset the game (after transferring some of the older pogeys like special Rockruff to Pokébank of course). I couldn’t decide which ones to use form the old game I had, so I decided to go for a rotational team of sorts and just went with 18. These have all been bred and EV-trained, so you could consider it slightly cheating. Between Exp.Share and boosted Exp. From being transferred Pokémon, they were easily up to level throughout most of the game without having to grind even once. I upheld a promise to myself that I’d use the lowest-levelled Pokémon on my team each time I’d visit a new place/Pokécentre and before facing a Trial Challenge.

Anyway, I’m now:
Spoiler: show
just before the League. All team mates are now at Lv.60. This was the only time when I decided to grind for exp. Since most were in their mid-late 50’s, I decided to even it out across the board and bring them all to Lv.60. I’m currently trying to decide which 6 to take with me for the challenge. I have no idea what the E4 is this time either, whether they kept the same or changed it up, so that'll be a nice surprise when I go in.


Spoilers on everything up to then:

So because I always used the lowest-levelled Pokémon for Totem trials, I didn’t always get to have the ones that were very usable. For instance, I didn’t have Musdale on my team when facing the Togemaru trial. I had to go through that one once, lose, reshuffle party order and try again before I managed to defeat it.
The toughest one was still Ribombee on which I somehow got myself in the position of having to use a couple dragons on my team as well as those with terrible speed stats (which does not pair well with Ribombee’s Quiver Dancing. Got a few hits in but after that Ribombee simply healed up with thanks to allies and then one-shot each one of my team mates before they could do anything. Eventually I reshuffled the party order again so I’d start with Alolan Marowak, whom has an abysmal speed stat that got OHKO’d by Ribombee if sent out too late in the battle. Also, he was the only one with a Rock-type move (Stone Edge). Strangely enough, spamming Stone Edge ensured Alolan Marowak was all I needed this time against the Quiver Dancing, Blissey-healed pest.
I had a similar problem with the first time I faced Ultimate(?) Necrozma. Had slow-moving ghosts such as Dhelmise and Palossand who were one-shot by it, a dragon who was 1-2-shot, Mimikyu who could only take one shot, as well as a few other useless. Reshuffled my team order and put Oranguru at the front, who could take one hit at the very least and who had just learned Trick Room. Naturally, my team’s low speed wasn’t a problem anymore.

Came across Necrozma on Mt. Lanakila

“Hell no!”
And so I’m just leaving that poor creature there for now.

THIS. So much this! I hate the face they chose to plaster on the player character, and I really wished they had fixed that somewhat in USUM. One of the main reasons my character has sunglasses is to try and hide as much of that awful smiling face of his.
