    Quick question about Melmetal: how do you get its G-Max?? Getting one from GO and after putting it in HOME in SwSh it will have its G-Max unlocked?

    Is it possible to breed for an A. Vulpix in these games? I tried with an A. Vulpix I got from Home but didn't have any luck so I'm thinking no, but wanted to make sure I wasn't doing something wrong because I've seen A. Vulpixes on the GTS in Home that have the Sword or Shield icon indicating they originated from a SwSh game.

    Have the Alolan parent hold an Everstone to pass down the variant.

    How do I protect myself from the game-crashing glitch as a result of having a hacked older mon Surprise traded at me or in a Multiplayer Max Raid? Is there a patch, or am I going to have to avoid multiplayer until it's fixed and the malicious actors depowered?

    I want to do random trade/battle things without trolls deliberately crashing my game and me being punished for their jerkishness?

    UNknowingly receiving stolen goods isn't a crime, even in Japan AFAIK...

    Is this crash "glitch" in reality bad DRM of the worst sort?

    I need to know so I can ST and Max Raid online again!

    ^Well, there goes my plan to see for my self whether mini-sprites have their alolette forms.

    But in all seriouness, it would be for the best to avoid surprise trade altogether, until gf fixes it.

    Can you do normal trades for pokémon like Meltan or Zeraora in Sword & Shield? I know you can’t do surprise trades since they’re considered special pokémon, but I wasn’t sure if regular trades work fine.

    That's Genned. And it's from a piss-poor Genning program.

    I recognize that type of spelling error from several genned Mons that I have received in the past.

    Take the Rusted Shield and kick it.

    Can you do a trade with a Link Code going both ways? Again, there are various settings on the Switch that can prevent you from interacting with other people, or at least getting notifications from other people. I can't think of more, but I know there are.

    It may be that Internet where you're playing is unstable. Are you playing this wired or wirelessly? That can be a major factor depending on the model of Switch, your Internet service provider, and the Internet plan for your home.

    I checked with Alolan Ninetales--no, they are not. The Kantonian Ninetales sprite is a lot bigger than the Alolan Ninetales sprite. (Vulpix and Corsola, on the other hand, didn't change in size.)

    They are not, sadly.

    its not so much question and more of an observation. gen6 games were easy enough, gen7 was similar but gen8 is stupidly easy to level up and ev train pokemon after a fair amount of post game progression. i can buy 50 vitamins and use feather/2-3 battles to EV train then use the many rare candies or EXPcandies and an easy EV trained lvl 100 pokemon in 5 minutes or less. it makes the gen6 battle cafes for money and EXP seem very slow and tedious in comparison. comparing gen6 to gen 4 is pretty much a similar situation where gen6 is easier.

    as for an actual question, what the deal with pokemon home now and just how well does it seem to work so far? i dont know yet if i will fork over the money for the premium version. its not worth it just so i can get a Kanto Fetch'd. the transferable pokemon are pretty darn limited...

    My personal observation, it's great. It's easy to navigate — took me around 3-4 hours to create and fill National Dex box list from 1 to 890. Trading from phone is probably one of the best features for me, though.

    ty for the reply. so thats the national dex on Pokemon home but not on the gen8 game? i believe a fair amount of pokemon arent coded for the full dex. i will see what happens when the expansion pack comes out then decide on it. i'll take your word for the handy cellphone feature because flip-phone :)

    Hello everyone, my questions are related to two Hidden Ability Pokemon.

    1. How do you get a Kantonian Weezing with Stench? I transfered one from LG Pikachu to Sword and it got Neutralising Gas. Are the abilities LG Pokemon get random?

    2. I know that Hidden Ability Sinistea is available, but how about Hidden Ability Antique Form Sinistea.

    I know Antique Form Polteageist can have Cursed Body, but seeing that Antique Form cannot be bred, is there any other way getting A.F. Sinistea?

    Thanks in advance.

    have they fixed the shiny event necrozama, lunala, and Solgaleo event to be used in raids and able to trade yet?

    Anybody else having trouble finding max raid battles to get Gmax Pokemon? Everytime I start up the game there's only one max raid and it's the Toxitricy one. And I can't join other people's raids.

    It's a promoted/event raid along with Orbeetle, Hatterene and Grimmsnarl, meaning you'll see them for a while and you'll have a higher capture rate. People try to get a desired nature, better IVs and possibly shiny so, it's entirely possible the seats are occupied when you try to connect.
