I do hope they don't take too long to release the pre-load for the digital version. My bandwidth isn't the best and I want it the bulk of it installed on my Switch in time for the Nov. 15th launch

Agreed. I understand if they don't want to put the preload out too early in case someone figures out how to get into the files and whatnot.

But boy do I not want to have to be preloading on Nov.14th, let alone downloading on the 15th.

So when are we supposed to get the digital copy? The horror is to wait for the download while others already have their physical copies :(
Cant we download the game before it's released ? I remember it was like that on the 3ds

Yes pre-loading is a thing and it will happen. It just won't happen until less then a week a way from release.

Pre-loading has never leaked a game. It's a two key system. The second key doesn't happen the 15th

Yeah, exactly. Like, it's not impossible to unlock the encryption, but it is very cumbersome and likely require more time than it would take for the games just to get released.

A datamine will be done from a physical copy that has been sold before the release date.

Exactly. Someone will get an early copy and then data dump the game.

I decided to start up Pokemon Y about a week ago to play through as I wait for Pokemon Sword and Shield and was hoping to maybe restart my Shiny Collection (which was lost when I forgot the password to my Pokebank and it refuses to issue the email to reset it). I'm so happy I did, though. As I was running around through the forest near Laverre Town waiting for rain to evolve my Sligoo, I encountered a Shiny Goomy! I'm gonna have a Shiny Goodra!! I'm so freakin' happy; I love Goodra!

Sword and Shield is paying off in the Shiny Hunt already, huzzah!

Congrats. Goodra is one of the strongest pseudo legendaries.
 
Something to keep in mind:

Someone does not even have to get a copy of the actual game to play/datamine for a leak.

Swsh is launching with a physical, printed strategy guide and pokedex. All it would take is for someone to peek at a few pages.

Strategy Guide? Yep, even if it comes out a week after SwSh launching.
Pokedex Guide? No, it won't come to the warehouse and stores until early December (it will be released in Dec. 20th).

I am just hoping swsh doesn't have any 'must trade to evolve' methods.

I'm personally hoping for no new Friendship evolutions myself. They just take forever without Friendship cafe in S/M

In Pearl i made it all the way to Pastoria City and my Budew wouldn't evolve even at level 20ish. I made sure to play in the morning, day, night every time of the day trying to get the thing to evolve

Just pointing this out in case you didn't know this about Budew, besides raising it's friendship and leveling it up, it also has the requirement of all evolving in the day time. Basically once you get it's Friendship/Happiness value to 220(which I'm presuming is the maximum amount you can have) you will then need to level it up in the day time in order for it to evolve into a Roselia.

I know. I tried a few times at 8am-Noon, it Just refused to evolve. Was also my first "evolve at a certain time" Pokemon way back when. The nighttime attempts were when i thought it was just Friendship.

I eventually gave up on it and grabbed a Cherubi from the GTS

Which one is the Weakest?

Huh, I know you didn't ask me, but an interesting question to compare the pseudos.

In terms of weakest.. as much as I love it.. Maybe Tyranitar? The x4 weakness to Fighting is such a huge disadvantage with its low-ish speed. Though I don't remember enough about Kommo-o to know how it'll perform without its Z-Move. Metagross is decent but nothing particularly special without its Mega?

My favourite to use is absolutely Dragonite though.

All this talk about Psuedos is making me wonder what Galar's Psuedo will be like.

Something tells me I'm gonna have to do a lot of talking to NPCs to get all the backdrops for the league cards.

I'm assuming we have to travel to each city to get a backdrop for it. I also assume we'll have to collect/unlock a great portion of the options. I'm totally cool with that, though. I aim for this card to be 100% bomb as hell.
