    The Isle of Armor & The Crown Tundra DLC - GENERAL DISCUSSION Thread

    The Isle of Armor & The Crown Tundra DLC - GENERAL DISCUSSION Thread

    Well even if there were version exclusive legendaries, you can still join raid battles with people who have the other version. Although finding the right raid battle is often easier said then done, and if legendary raids are even half as rare as gigantamax ones I can imagine they'd fill up...

    The Isle of Armor & The Crown Tundra DLC - GENERAL DISCUSSION Thread

    I think the idea is that while classic fossil pokemon are restored through DNA, Galarian fossils are restored by skeletal reconstruction. Sure that doesn't make a lot if scientific sense but Pokemon's never been scientifically accurate to begin with. That said I'm sure GF could easily handwave...

    I'm not confident a third version would have really improved it much. I mean, its possible, but Gamefreak has never had consistently good story telling. Most people agree that US/UM had a worse story then their counterparts. At least Isle of Armor seems like its going to have its own separate...

    Assuming a third version even happens (X/Y). Otherwise fair enough. I still don't think we'd be seeing two new open-world areas in a third edition though.

    Pokemon Sword & Shield GENERAL DISCUSSION Thread [Spoilers]

    There's a lot of irony about people who are furious about DLC being a "cashgrab" or that it "should have been in the base game" while defending third versions like those same complaints couldn't apply to them. This happens whenever a new Nintendo franchise adopts DLC. People were pretty angry...

    Pokemon Sword & Shield GENERAL DISCUSSION Thread [Spoilers]

    Well I didn't expect my little post to spark this long of a debate. Perhaps I should have clarified that I didn't want all raids to be super-challenging, just for the most difficult of them to be. Then there might be reason for people to run support. Imagine if there was a 6-star difficulty...

    Pokemon Sword & Shield GENERAL DISCUSSION Thread [Spoilers]

    Their stats don't change, they just have a maximum amount of damage they can take before their barrier goes up. You can see this with moves like Dragon Darts, where the first hit might do a large amount of damage and the second hit does practically none. At the same time I feel like it kind of...

    Yeah, thats because none of them are over level 70. I feel like it was a bit of a waste not to have super challenging raids that practically needed other players to help with, but oh well. They're still kind of fun regardless though.

    Pokemon Sword & Shield GENERAL DISCUSSION Thread [Spoilers]

    The only pokemon types that resist ghost are dark and normal, the latter of which is ineffective against ghost in return. Meanwhile the only type weakness ghosts have is dark and other ghosts. Ever since dragons got nerfed in Gen 6, it's arguably been the best type in the game, there just...

    Wasn't that glitch traced back to faulty SD cards like with the Smash Bros Piranha Plant one? If that wasn't just a rumor, it might never get patched anyway since that isn't really GF's fault. I don't believe the Smash Bros glitch ever got fixed.

    Post your Sword & Shield Pokémon Nicknames (Beware Pokémon Spoilers)

    I gave my shiny Dragapult the name "Issac Newton". I just wanted some sort of newt pun and that was the best I could think of.

    Man I wish that the Y-comm was better. I really want to play more raid battles with strangers but that's kind of difficult when the game rarely updates with new stamps.

    Pokemon Sword & Shield GENERAL DISCUSSION Thread [Spoilers]

    Plenty of other open world Switch games have much better render distances. It's probably poor optimization then it is a system limitation in this case. It's something GF will probably get better at as they get more experience with HD development to, but for now it's pretty annoying. I actually...

    I find bad textures to be 100% forgivable. The game would definitely look way better if the textures were more clean, but its easy to get used to it. Its the render distance that drives me insane. That can actually effect gameplay by making Watt Traders harder to find or roaming pokemon harder...

    I'm pretty confident Spikemouth was designed that way as an artistic choice, not as a result of being "rushed". Its a bit disappointing you don't get to explore the city proper but oh well. I think the weirdly paced story also has to do with Gamefreak's stories just being hit an miss in general...

    More like a wyrm in an apple. I'm convinced that pun was intentional.

    I just received my copy of Pokemon Attac myself. I got a Grookey keychain with it. I'm still picking Sobble, but I do love Grookey as well.
