Just when you think they can't squeeze any more love for Generation I into these games...

Spoiler: show
...I come across Nugget Bridge. I don't know exactly when this happens, but I returned to Malie Garden in the postgame, and you got the five Nugget Bridge Trainers from R/B/Y. Like the exact ones with the same teams and the same dialogue. And mostly the same Trainer classes- the Bug Catcher and Jr. Trainer are now Rising Stars. Even the Veteran at the end who gives you a Big Nugget asks if you want to join Team Rocket (and like in the originals, the game automatically makes you refuse). Like, same dialogue and everything. That just blew my mind. Of course, the Veteran then reveals that they were all just pretending, just re-enacting what the Trainers on Nugget Bridge would say, but even so!

So I just learned Alolan Marowak learns it's signature move Shadow Bone at 27. It's also the only Ghost move it learns leveling up that isn't Hex, which it also learns prior to evolving.

And Cubone evolves into it at 28.

The only way to get it is from the Move Reminder, which is AT THE END OF THE FUCKING GAME.

Thanks for fucking nothing Gamefreak.

So I've been dex hunting trying to complete my living dex as of late. It has been really interesting. I also found a random Shiny Poliwag while doing so today . I love my shiny Politoed :3

Sacrifice your firstborn to Giratina. Wait, what? Actually it's just random, but apparently chaining SOS fights can help increase the chance. But SOS fights are.. really boring.

To the people curious about stones, on my first two tries in the "Brilliant Stone" cave adventure, I got:

Hard Stone
Leaf Stone
Moon Stone
Float Stone
Ice Stone
Everstone
Shiny Stone
Thunder Stone

So with my moderate luck, I got some decent stones. I'm not sure if adjusting the 3DS timer can do anything, but I guess it's worth trying. If you have Misdreavus or someone who evolves with a rare stone that doesn't appear until the end of the freaking game, it would probably be a good idea to upgrade this part of Poke Pelago.

Speaking of stones that don't appear until the end of the game, I kind of regret making Vaporeon my water type. Like always, he's very reliable, and he's often my best switch choice. He's also deadly in Refresh. It's just that my Meowth picked up a prism scale early on in the game. I could have had an early Milotic! I doubt I'll ever have that kind of luck again.

I gave up on shiny hunting after trying to chain Cutiefly for an hour. "Greatly increased chances" my ass. Though I did find a few hidden abilities, so it's worth attempting for that.

I'm through the 4th island. My team has finally come together:

Incineroar
Mismagius
Ribombee
Raichu
Vaporeon
Salamence

I don't like using the late game dragon types, since they usually won't be fully evolved until well after the elite four, but I figured I should get someone I can use the mega evolution thing with. I'm sure they'll throw some mega stones in somewhere. Ribombee has proved to be really useful. Raichu...often dies before she can do anything. That high five almost makes it worth it!

The protagonist's face is beginning to really get to me. There was this scene where someone was pouring their heart to the protagonist, and the protagonist was just blankly standing there with a . Was it that hard for them to put expressions on the protagonist? They did it in XY, so I would like to think not. It may not seem like a big deal, but I find it difficult to take scenes seriously when everyone is idolizing a hollow husk of a person.

I've just beaten the game and I think I counted three times where the expression of the protagonist changed. Which is a shame because all of the other characters are so emotive and expressive. Speaking of beating the game, here's the final team:

Solgaleo
Decidueye
Salazzle
Lycanroc
Toucannon
Vikavolt

Special shoutout to Oricorio who I was planning on keeping until the end but then story reasons really forced me to feel obligated to use Solgaleo. All members of the team were Level 63 or 64 and playtime was 37:21

Despite online guides saying you can still get Espeon until 8 PM, at 6 PM~ or so my Eevee evolved into an Umbreon (which I already had). Thankfully I saved and reset but.. info like that shouldn't be so hard to find in [current year].

Same here but I had to suffer through a million years of SOS battles trying to steal a Light Ball from a Pikachu.

WHY IS IT THIS DIFFICULT

I JUST WANT TO GIVE PIKANITE TO MY RAICHU

Currently playing through Po Town.

Spoiler: show
I take it all back, Sun and Moon's writing is fan-fucking-tastic.

Skull is very obviously just a bunch of teenagers getting taken advantage of by Guzma...like holy shit it's all coming together and it's actually really sad. He promised them that they would be free and that they would be cool and now they live in a shitty mansion that they wrecked while Guzma tries to make up for his inability to complete the island challenge/become the Bug type captain.

Everything about the situation is just so fucked up and sad. The pokemon they have are their equivalent of early route trash (Zubats and Rattatas found outside Po Town + Wimpods which are probably the boss' hand-me-downs) and I'm tearing through them even with just my weakest pokemon, a rufflet - say nothing of what would happen if I let loose with my Golossipod or my starter.

The grunts say things like "I would like to undo this development" and "I wish I had found an alternative to this situation!" which is sad because they clearly have this intellectual potential but they're wasting it on being grunts. Fuck.

What is this I came here to have fun and play pokemon not to feel these feelings!!!

Also: what should i make of the grunt on the left by the pool? is he gay or nah?

Also: Guzma's battle music is hype as FUCK

There's a scene where you walk in on two female grunts. If you're a guy they get mad and battle you, and if you're a girl she calls you cute and gets embarrassed.

Alright, you know how wild Pokémon can call for help? Apparently, the help that gets called in has an improved Shiny rate, so the new thing in Shiny hunting is, you keep KOing the help, the Pokémon keeps calling in new stuff, and this repeats itself over and over until a Shiny appears. I've yet to get a Shiny through this, but then, I haven't tried much just yet.

I think my favorite thing about this game is tat there's so many side events or areas that you skip by only following the main story. It makes running around exploring feel more fun then in previous games

I've heard that they improved the shiny rate for normal encounters from 1 in 8192 to 1 in 4096 as well. Speaking of, ran into a shiny Magby and caught it.

That's been the normal Shiny rate since Generation VI. Congrats on the Magby, though!

Speaking of calling for help, legit just got wiped by a wild Oricorio or 6. Just would not stay in the ball or stop calling for help every time one died. Blew a big pile of potions and like 15 Great Balls.

I beat the game, and am a little bit into post-game funtime. In the end, my team is the same it was in the last post. I probably need to go back to Pokemon school or someshit, because last guy nearly wiped me. He had 3 guys with full health, and all I had was a nearly dead, paralyzed Salamence and Vaporeon. Vaporeon somehow pulled through. Post-game stuff is giving me difficulty as well. It's nice I actually have to think to beat the game again.

Admittedly (end of game spoilers)
Spoiler: show
I kept wishing the professor wasn't going to say "NOW YOU HAVE TO FIGHT ME!". The entire damn game made it so obvious he was going to be the final trainer. I so wanted it to be a trick. Sadly that wish never came true.

Someone fake spoiled me about Lillie. I was convinced most of the game that Lillie was actually that jellyfish Ultra-Beast.


(Battle Tree spoilers: I would seriously not open this until reaching the Battle Tree):
Spoiler: show
Wow. Red really does look like a man-child. So much for him living forever as pissed off Ash!

Actually I regret using a party slot for an eventual mega. It seems I can only get the damn stones by getting 64 points in the god damn battle tree. I AM NOT going to grind through those tedious battles for a mega stone.


The world for the next Pokemon game should be based off of China. They should turn the PC boxes into sweatshops.

They should have made an Alolan Gardevoir with the "dress" replaced with a "bikini". Male Gardevoir still has a "bikini".
