  • How are you doing?

    I sent you some DIY in ACNH. Worst case scenario, you can sell or give them away. I was trying to fill my mail quota.

    Well enough. Yourself?

    I did receive what you sent. I have those already, but thank you.
    Don't know if I told you this, but that Slowpoke you helped me evolved became one of my final Pokemon to beat the game with.
    Slowking is just that awesome.

    Happy to help.
    How are you doing otherwise?

    I need to spend time to raise a Pokemon for the raid, but I'm glued to Three Houses.
    I think I'll spend some time on the former pretty soon.

    I went back to Pokemon Violet. I decided on Slowbro as my go-to for the event.
    On that note, if you have a spare bottle cap, I might ask for one.
    My Slowpoke's HP IV isn't very good.
    BCVM22
    BCVM22
    Yes, I do have a Bottle Cap, it is set aside for you, I meant to attach it to the Pokémon the last time we traded.
    My friend just allowed me to do a Skrelp raid with him.

    Since Skrelp is usually exclusive to Scarlet, would you like me to breed you a specimen?
    Auraninja
    Auraninja
    I guess I'll ask for Quaxly/Fuecoco and any version exclusives you happen upon when you ever get around to it, no rush.
    BCVM22
    BCVM22
    Which version exclusives do you need?
    Auraninja
    Auraninja
    Basically, anything except Skrelp plus the Auspicious Armor (already have a Characadet candidate, or a Charcanidate).
    Do me a favor and when you download the update, see if the game runs more smoothly (it can't just be me).

    Also, we both seem to be gravitating towards Donphan on our playthroughs. I swear, I'm not even that partial towards Donphan, but it gets the job done.
    BCVM22

    I was between Donphan and Garganacl in the no. 5 spot. It was tough but I went with Donphan because I wanted something with STAB on Earthquakes from that spot, without being quite as glacially slow as Garganacl is.

    If there's an opportunity down the line to play through Paldea again, I'll probably use Garganacl.
    I'll trade you a Sprigatito egg for a Quaxly egg.
    Auraninja
    Auraninja
    Pro gamer tip: Get a meal item that increases "egg power". A cinnamon churro is a good example.

    Edit: I'm also breeding Sprigatito some more so I can get you a good one.
    BCVM22
    BCVM22
    Thank you. I'm not picky about Sprigatito, it would just be for 'dex purposes.
    Auraninja
    Auraninja
    I bred a close-enough Sprigatito. The only real downer is the average Attack (it's HP is low, but that doesn't matter).
    I'm about halfway through the challanges. (Slowpoke emoji)

    I tend to take my time with Pokemon games. Plus, there is a lot of immersion.
    BCVM22

    There certainly is plenty to explore in these games.
    I caught a shiny Litleo in Violet. Unless there is some mechanism I don't know about, it's full odds.

    Just don't go into too much detail about what the "hell portal" is because I'm not far into the game.

    Although such a portal makes Pokemon sound DOOMed.
    BCVM22
    BCVM22
    That's why I called it the hell portal instead of its given name.
    Auraninja
    Auraninja
    I'm picturing some heavy metal music playing during the hell portal segment.
    I'm taking my sweet time with this game.

    I beat two gyms and one titan so far, so I'm not that far along.

    Three Gyms, two Titans, two Team Star bases so far.

    How are you enjoying the game?

    I also hate to ask this, but did you come across any bad glitches?
    I don't mean minor performance issues or some graphical delays, but something that was game breaking or very jarring.

    I haven't myself. Just the minor performance issues and graphical delays.
    BCVM22
    BCVM22
    Nothing awful yet, just the known technical issues. I’m otherwise enjoying the game a great deal, as expected.
    You know, I find garden eels very neat. I went to this big aquarium once and saw a whole group of them in the Japan exhibit.
    They're one of those types of animals that you really have to see in person to see how neat they truly can be.

    This is to say, I actually like Wiglett.

    You find them eely neat.
    I'm sure you're no doubt aware that Kevin Conroy passed away.
    Rest in Peace, he will always be the best Batman.
    Hey, speaking of BDSP, I was looking for a Pixie Plate, the only Arceus plate you have to get from the Grand Underground.

    I was going to try to get it myself, but if the 1/1000 chance breaks me, would you have a spare?
    BCVM22
    BCVM22
    I’ll have to check if I have one, much less a spare.
    Finally, I have beaten Pokemon Shining Pearl.

    Mismagius helped me the most, but Cynthia's Garchomp I just put a Reflect/Curse set up on my Torterra.

    Mismagius is a beast. It was the ace of my roster for a while.

    Calm Mind is a godsend for Mismagius. It allows for some crazy set ups.

    meh I don't bother with buffing moves in-game. The best defense is a good offense.

    Have you kept up with the World Series? Who do you think will win, and who do you want to win?

    Every time I get one question asked, another one comes up.

    How are the Astros cheaters?
    BCVM22
    BCVM22
    Are you not aware? They admitted to cheating throughout the 2017 season and World Series using illegal signaling methods to tell their batters what pitch was coming, and none of the players were ever sanctioned for it.
    Auraninja

    Well to be fair, I don't keep up with sports news.
    One thing that I really like about the Switch era of Pokemon games is that everything has been a different experience altogether. LG, Sw/Sh, BDSP, and Legends feel completely different from one another. Even though I like Gen 1 through 3 remakes, you can really feel the past games being an influence. Here, they feel like they were built differently, and I really appreciate that.

    I feel like cutting some of the Pokemon in games allowed Game Freak (and co) to express themselves more creatively.

    Not only would it allow them to utilize their time more, but it allowed the games to have an even greater identity amongst themselves.

    My opinions on the dex cut changed over time, from a geniune downer, to an unfortunate necessity, to something that actually benefits the franchise.

    That said, I feel like it would be cool if we got a battle sim similar to Stadium where you can use any of your Pokemon.
    Maybe if Home sponsored something like that...
    I found a G. Moltres and G. Articuno while using that daily incense in Go today. I missed both of them.

    G. Moltres I almost caught, but it fled after the second shake.

    G. Articuno was the opposite, I botched the throw.

    Considering the current climate, they probably had to Pokemon Go to the polls.

    (Sorry, that one was a bit easy.)

    That joke was looming in my head. I had to let it out somehow.
