Oh hi... Am I... First? Mmm... I just wanted to ask the people who are currently playing where can I get Nincada... Serebii says it appears sooner in route 5 but I have seen videos on youtube of people searching fpr Farfetch and haven't seen a single one. Can somebody be so kind and tell me if the have come across this little fella and how and where? Is thereta special method needed to find one? I need him to become my false swiper and I want to get him asap. Thanks in advance...

It appears in the grass exclamation marks with 5 % encounter rate. It's not an overworld encounter. just keep trying

Oh thanks so much, you're a life saver! That said, should I just keep running around until I see the exclamation mark or stay put and wait for it to appear? Sorry if it's obvious but this method of finding pokemon is new to me as I still haven't gotten the game

Can I find Hattena in the wild area? Can I find it before the 4th GYM?
Can someone trade me a Snom!

Hi guys, quick question, can we get the gigantimax at the lower stages or is it just the final stages, for instance, can I get a Rookidee that can gigantimax once it evolves into Corviknight or is it only a Corviknight from a raid that can gigantimax??

Is it hard finding Dreepy during the main story?
Also, I dont understand the difference between the 2 forms of Sinistea. Do they look different?

Is the Leek held item only found in Sword? Are there ways to obtain it other than getting it from a wild Farfetch'd?

So, I was wondering if you have access to your boxes during whatever the equivalent of the Elite Four is (I don't know what that is and I want to find out myself. I've a feeling it isn't the Elite Four though). Logically it would be a no, but I would like confirmation on that. It will help me decide on what Pokemon I use.

Seems that you can find it at the very end in the lake nearby that last city. It's at level 60 so not sure if you're able to catch it before the league

Any info on Alcremie's Sherbet/Rainbow form?
Do you have any images of those? I am very curious on what they may look like now

Does the EXP share distribute EVs as well?

You know, I was not even aware the exclamation marks were a separate group from the overworld encounters. I missed a lot of Pokémon in this way, it seems.

To my knowledge, you get Gigantamax Pokémon through Max Raid Battles via their final forms. They'll already be in their Gigantamax form when the battle begins.
