Stadium was relatively easy this week since all pre-Blue stages were mostly weak to types I have already. Only Bruno needed a couple resets since Caitlin does have her EX yet.

I think I missed the opportunity to test Bianca with Caitlin and Sabrina. I wonder how well she can't tank hits.

AND all 3 Pokemon must be Steel type. That one's actually legit pretty tough. Don't think I'd have been able to do it if my Daigo hadn't been EXed.
What grid build you use on him? I've tried Gloria - who is a physical steel type striker as well - and she still takes a while even with garanteed crit on her.

Standard Haymaker grid. Haymaker on a +4 Attack critting sync moves almost OHKOs the entire team at level 130. Solgaleo deals enough damage to soften it up. Need 3/5 though, if you don't have that it'll probably be a bit more difficult.

Pulled Alder on my fourth multi, that's two more than I would have liked but still good enough. Still no Bianca though. How long must I wait to finally use her. Now, the only limited units that I care about but am still missing are Steven and Fall Acerola.

Use Okido, his sync move is ridiculously powerful if you grid him with Inertia and Blind Spot. New Year Lilie has great synergy with him if you have her.
I don't like Oak so I forget he exists most of the time. I beat it with SS Elesa, Leaf and Giovanni, managed to beat Machamp pre-sync and then Leaf finished the stage after Mewtwo went down.

I guess being focused on N will be a stamp of quality for this event? I mean, that one was pretty good

Also, it seems like the person from Reddit who speculated the next arc would be focused on Rainbow Rocket might be into something.

Anyway, finished all event missions. With this + the bingo rewards from Raihan event, I skyrocket to nearly 30k gems. Hopefully next month doesn't have many units I want so I can save even more for the anniversary lol

If all the speculation/rumors about Archie and Maxie being added next month is correct than I'm hoping Maxie is free because I desperately need a ground type.

Dennis & Kyurem more than make up for the horrid lack of good offensive Sync Pairs. A free FOUR-slot move that hits EVERYONE?

Speaking of which, how are you guys planning on gridding him? Both his kit and grid feel a bit all over the place (I said this about Spring May last time and ended up loving her so here's hoping).

I haven't gotten my prize box orbs yet so I haven't fully gridded him but so far I've gone for Glaciate MGR, Cold Snap and Paralysis Synergy. His kit synergizes with Valentine Serena who can also help him max out Hunter's Instinct and buff speed but I don't know what else to go for. More stat+Glaciate buff or sync buffs, I don't know if I'd be syncing with him yet. Also from the little I've used him so far, he seemed kinda slow even at +6 speed.

The daily discount pull today just gave me a Raihan.

Interestingly enough before that one, I did a daily on Alder's banner and got a five stars (Ethan, but at least that's an extra ticket). Now, time to tackle those missions. Wish me luck

I like how they're being a bit creative with these new "use certain characters" missions, but I wissh they'd up the difficulty a bit so it was less trivial. The Alola event essentially forcing you to use a team consiting of MC, Kuchinahi and Hapu'u was a fun challenge they should do more of.

It's not abnormal weather when a lead Sync Pair simply starts harsh sunlight with Sunny Day.

Finally getting some more candies here. 2/5 Bunny Haruka and 3/5 Halloween Acerola here we are (also 2/5 New Year Lilie, but that doesn't add much of note).

Seemed odd to me that Ghetsis's Full Force Battles were just regular battles against 3 trainers...until I noticed the challenges want people to clear those with a team of only Unova Sync Pairs.

Boy, they sure do not want SS!Red to steamroll.

Beat both full forces with Hoenn Gang (Treecko, Mudkip and Torchic). But then I 5/5 20/20 my Torchic (I have a bias towards favorites)

With grids and EXs, the "full force" battle as well as every other content in the game can be cleared by so many other sync pairs just as easily as Red. He is no longer the game changer most broken thing ever in the game anymore and I much prefer it this way. I haven't used Red for anything ever since Hilda's grid.

The prize box however has been the most frustrating thing for me this time round. I've literally had to clear entire pools to get the main rewards multiple times now. Despite having the max bonus and pouring stamina into it, I've just reached pool 16.

Agreed on both of your points but especially on the prize box. I’ve had to go to the entire pool for more than half of the boxes. I haven’t even reached Ghetsis’s PUs

Luckily I've reached pool 20. I think I'd be done if I didn't take long in some of them for stuff like the 100 drinks thingies.

Honestly, I think the pools better than the maps duo being faster to pass throw. Those maps are such a slog during all the waiting between the loading....

===============

Also, finally got my 3rd striker candy. Now, I can start thinking about giving one or two. Let's see what the upcoming 4 champions banner will turn out.

I'm more compelled to use coins in the prize boxes all because all non-20 boxes have the new drinks, and you end up getting a lot of them to "save" on stamina for the actual training stages.
