A couple questions that I feel haven't been answered yet. One, how many boxes are in the Pokemon storage system in these games? And two, what is the exact progression of level obedience from getting gym badges? So far, I've gotten three Gym badges, and it seems each one increases the level cap by five, as I started at level 20, at now it's at level 35.

After 5 badges it still only increased by 5 per gym. My cap is 45 even though all my Pokémon are level 50 or higher. And then there are 32 boxes for you to store your Pokémon.

For those who’ve already beaten the game, who did you think was the stronger champion, Geeta or Nemona? Just asking out of curiosity since Nemona kind of gives the vibe of the real final champion and people have been saying that Greta’s battle is too easy.

Nemona. If she's already beaten Geeta before, why is Geeta still Top Champion?

Because Geeta is an adult and the Chairwoman of the entire League. Nemona is a student who has defeated her and simply attained Champion Rank.

Just defeated the Bombidier Titan rather easily. Only one Spark from Bellibolt for the first round and then a Spark and one Rock Throw.

Well what is your team currently like?

Also it may help if you mentioned specifically how the car is wiping your team.

Well I just finished the true ending after completing the three paths. Really hope they do something similar for the storyline of the Gen 10 games cause that was a nice change to the formula.

Side note the soundtracks for SV was fantastic. The theme for Area Zero gave me chills

Yikes. Found a thread showing some more issues that could cause headaches and/or seizures.


Lighting moves and flashes way too much, etc..

Not wishing to denigrate this or make light of it, but I've done about 40 hours on the game so far and I have seen nothing like that, not even once.

I'm running the oldest gen switch and playing it on a 4K TV. You would think I'd see something like this once in 40 hours. I've seen numerous other graphical issues, but nothing like that. There seems to be an element of looking for it here.

It's concerning, for sure, but there doesn't seem to be a central issue to this other than a generic "frame rate" or "graphical" issue, and it relies on the user doing things outwith normal gaming decisions.

I do agree Scarlet/Violet needed more time for optimising and debugging, for sure.

I can't believe how much I love these games; did I break the game by sitting down in a chair? Sure! Have I witnessed NPCs and pokemon falling theoigh the floor, floors disappearing, glitches and framerate issues the same as everyone else? Absolutely, but honestly, I am having an absolute riot with Violet. I'm untold hours in (circa 20-25) with only 2 badges and 1 titan...I just can't stop exploring and joining Tera raids. I've got a huge team of about 15-17 pokes on rotation which is the first time over properly played like this, it's much better for not overleveling though most are at or near 25 which may still be overleveled. It's also really enjoyable and refreshing to see, catch and utilise from early doors many 'Mon that were cut from SWSH or only in BDSP for gen 8, or pokes that are making their switch debut. However, GF certainly needed to give the games a thorough debug before release; that said, I'm head over heels.

It's interesting to me that we all thought Legends was Pokemon x BOTW, but actually it's SV that fits this category more. (Sometimes slightly shamelessly what with the watchtowers, not complaining though)

That's the general consensus: the game's good, but it wouyld be greater if the technical issues weren't there.

Funny that a game like Skyrim gets away with unpatched bugs aplenty, while Pokémon gets slammed for this... I've seen people comparing SV to Cyberpunk 2077... which was unplayable on consoles at launch, had game-breaking issues and was missing expected features.

Aside from the lack of level scaling in stories... and the National Dex (again), SV doesn't disappoint for the rest.

I'll give them the Eri team star battle. First time I was defeated in the main quest, even if I knew what she had. That starmobile of her is bad, specially if you aren't using much special attackers. Only won second time by a mix of luck and putting Rocky Helmet on Tinkaton.

In retrospect, the battle would've been a breeze if I just used Drifblim. Immunity to the fighting and ground moves and only the steel type one to be feared and even this would be benefical as it drops the user's speed. Could even troll with a Destiny bond

I'd just ignore anything I'd read online from places that aren't dedicated like here, folks on here are a lot more level headed and actually know what they're talking about. I feel sorry for Joe anytime he speaks positively about these game on Twitter he gets called a shill and someone even has a hate account dedicated to him. God Twitter is the worst of the Pokemon fandom

Open world games are hard to do especially Pokemon. I started BOTW last month & for all its plaudits the map is basically empty and not much variety for enemies models so far in what I played. Compare that to Pokemon with NPC's and all the unique Mon models they have to do.

The game isn't without faults but I can see effort was actually put it and I am forgiving of its shortcomings.
