    Think its just a norm thing now.

    As for shiny hunting, datamining found that to increase shiny chances you literally just have to keep encountering the same pokemon in a row. It was like 500 encoutners increases a shiny to 15% encounter rate.

    The little in-game Switches default to two gray joycons if you’re playing on a Switch Lite.

    I have enjoyed the game so far, despite all the negative things I’ve said about it this year. I’ve played 6 hours and only on route 3 and yet to reach the first gym leader hahaha. I’ve spent most of my time exploring the Wild Area, catching random stuff, doing Dynamax battles, designing my outfit and perfecting my trainer card!

    My current team:

    Trevelyan (Drizzile) level 22 (007 Goldeneye tribute)
    Starship (Dottler) level 23 (alien bug Starship Troopers tribute)
    Shade (G-Linoone) level 20 (black and white are shades)
    Death Petal (Roselia) level 23

    I realize I’m over-leveled. It’s hard not to be. Even the bloody curry gives you Exp. The game is fun and looks pretty. I like all the TMs and TRs. Glowing powerful Pokémon are cool. Still not happy about Dexit, move cuts, subpar graphics in the Wild Area, the easiness of the game so far, and the lack of buffs for older pokemon. Also, shiny Pokémon should be shiny in the overworld. But the game is still an enjoyable experience so far.

    I didnt notice it before, but I guess those with an egg move have an aura around them in the wild. I just saw a Nickit and after battling it, got some W (whatever that is) which happened after that Rookidee from early too.

    Watts is a currency earned in the wild area, you can use it to buy specific items

    Anyone else being overconfident and trying to take down level 40 Pokémon that are walking around in the Wild Area, just for the challenge? :p

    Is it true you have to turn off auto save right away or it can wipe your sd card??

    Yeah there's a bug happening. I heard it's happening to exFAT SD cards but best to not take any risks and stick to keeping autosave off for now.

    Seems its happening to mostly hacked consoles and downloaded virtual copies of the games. But there are reports as well that the game crashes when you turn it off and then crashes all other games as well.

    However people with physical copies have reported the game has bricked their systems.

    But much less then the above. Its russian roulette, though physical seems to be safer.

    I don’t like Leon as a character but I’m actually surprised they’ve haven’t gone with an egotistic champion since most of them have been humble pretty much.
