Pokemon Sword & Shield GENERAL DISCUSSION Thread [Spoiler-Prone Area]

Does this idea seem at all plausible to you?

    question! Does anyone know how runigerus is pronounced?

    I'm guessing like Cofagrigus but replace "Cofa" with "Rune". I've been going "ROON-ree-giss".

    Oh yeah, and I don't think anyone's mentioned it prior, but after you beat the game, the towns and routes DO follow your system clock. I'm guessing they pick arbitrary times of the day for the sake of the story.

    As mentioned prior, Stonehenge's original purpose was a calendar. The stones are arranged in such a way that, standing in the middle, the sun would rise and set along certain gaps at certain key days of the year, most notably the equinoxes.

    I appreciate they got that reference in with Stonjourner, because as famous a landmark as Stonehenge is, its purpose is rarely ever brought up in the media (or it's discovered to have supernatural traits without ever mentioning that it's a calendar, like with Jackie Chan Adventures).


    It's a portmanteau of "rune" and "egregious."

    While I have my issues with the game, this might be the best batch of new Pokemon we've gotten since at least gen V. It was smart of them to not market too many of the new ones, since there's been a lot of surprises. The fact that they even kept potential fan-favourite Galarian Pokemon like Mr Mime/Rime and Corsola/Cursola out of the spotlight was cool. And then you have Pokemon like Falinks, Copperajah, Toxtricity and the mix-and-match fossils that are so different from what we've had before.

    Unique types, interesting concepts, good effort all around. I hope a lot of them have staying power for future gens.

    So does Rillaboom just magically make drums appear? Like how do these Pokemon even get around lugging some wooden object with their pack?

    They really should have made a more active way of obtaining 'new stamps' rather than swapping between local and online constantly until a Giga shows

    Like a filter that completely blocks 'trainer cards and catches', not search from stamps you get

    I was about to say that to. I'm honestly ok with it, it's less awkward having characters say, "Good morning!" and having it be the early evening.

    No, the second "g" is also a hard "guh" sound, because it's "rune" + "egregious" + "sarcophagus".

    random question, does anyone hear a kinda woosh/wind sound when releasing some pokemon? can't find or remember hearing anything about it.

    I also hear it with Galarian Yamask as well.

    i've got a few that do it, and i hear it for a few other npc characters pokemon too.
    at first i thought it was just part of rookidee's cry but then i noticed other ones not making the same noise as mine and then on other pokemon.

    i've heard it on rookidee, magikarp, pumpkaboo, npc's gossifleur, etc.

    Not to mention the ones that say "Come on, everybody! Join us as allies! We're going to have a Max Raid Battle!" Considering that's a non-interactive stamp AND it shows up when you filter it to just Max Raid Battles, I don't get the point of this stamp at all.

    Huh, I would've figured they'd drop the "sarcophagus" part because it's no longer based on one.

    They may introduce this character for Pokémon Home. Brigette and Hayley never actually existed in the main series games; they were exclusive to the Pokémon storage programs. (Or it might be Brigette again.)

    shoz999 Do you wanna try a good Tapu Cocoa? My treat.

    Nope. Haven't seen a single person that fits the PC admin role which is pretty weird if there is none. Its always been an tradition in Pokemon games to have a PC admin.
