I started a new Sword playthrough and lost interest after picking my starter... Maybe this wasn't the best idea. bebe1

You should do a nuzlocke. I used to be better at replaying on normal playthroughs, but now I need there to be a nuzlocke to replay (unless the game just came out). When there's death at stake, it keeps things interesting and forces you to be focused. Especially if you're nuzlocking at the same time as your friends. If you need any spreadsheet trackers, hit me up

 

@Habits, @edwinfg and I have nuzlocked SWSH, SM, USUM, LGPE and ORAS together since the IOA DLC came out. We'll be starting XY next week, and then aiming to do Gen 5 also. Then might do SWSH again, or with a wonderlocke or smth fun (this depends on when TCT is available in the story)

Here's a view link to our SWSH spreadsheet

Just copy it into one of your own and it has all the encounters listed and our general rules etc

Nice, thanks for that!

yw of course. another idea is to do a wonderlocke. essentially, you do the same as the nuzlocke, but the pokemon you catch doesnt matter bc each encounter you trade on surprise trade for a different pokemon. if you get one higher than ur highest lv or a duplicate, then u trade again. the rest of the rules still apply. 

 

This is more fun in games where you have a national dex bc you can get pokemon you dont normally get. Someone who didnt have the dlc could do this for IOA mons too since you'll likely get a lot of breedjects. However my assumption is TCT wont be accessible till postgame, so this will make wonderlockes more viable since some mons like Nidoran will be unavailable main game but accessible in wonderlockes.

Yeah there's very little happening. I think with them doing DLC rather than an enhanced version as a new game, that also means less promotion for anything too. The raids are nice but at the same time... I was hoping for more. The random shiny raids that happen for 3 days every month are great, but then it goes back to irrelevants. Doing more interesting raids would keep people interested, for example have "raid-exclusive" moves, like have grass type summer focusing on Bellossom, Vileplume etc where they can have Overheat as an exclusive move. Give people a reason to keep raiding. Ofc TCT will help but only for a month like IOA was. 

It is weird we've not had any more information. I am definitely expecting a Pokemon Presents in October. Corocoro is meant to have TCT news so I'm assuming they'll do a Presents before that, so probably around the 14th or so. I expect more on TCT and Snap there. 

In other news, SWSH received the award for excellency, best sales award and something else at the Japan Game Awards cheer1

YAS, finally something on TCT bebe1

Honestly I don't think it's out of the realm of possibilities for them to say release date Wednesday 14 October. the IOA trailer happened 2 weeks before the release. DLC doesnt need to follow their usual release pattern (particularly a DLC that people have mostly already paid for). Also XY was released on October 12th. 

 

Failing that I expect the new horses to be shown off instead.

The presentation is like 3 or 4pm for you so you wouldn’t be that behind dead2 I would live. But  I don’t expect it to happen. October is seeming likely though

I just found this online. Can we add this to the list of reactions?  

omg they can fuck off i just bought it in june

There are many more Pokemon fans on flops of the pop than i thought. I still think they need to improve the stats of many older Pokemon and create a more challenging plot for the next game. Do we know
