Caught my shiny Vulpix on day two this time. Raid set probably numbering in the 30/40's over the period. Now to decide whether I hunt for a second to have both abilities or simply change up the one I caught in pokemon go instead.
Lucky. The one I was resetting, ended up despawning. So now I'm hunting via random raids.

I actually had decent luck with the Vulpix raids for a change. The second raid den I checked on the IoA on Christmas Eve had a HA Shiny Alolan Vulpix, so I was able to help a couple friends get it while picking it up for myself as well. On a minor note, it was also male, which is cool since Vulpix only has a 25% chance to be male.

So I didn't have to waste much time on this event, and I'm all about the efficiency.

Created this Lati family in Pokemon Camp just like the ending of the 5th Pokémon movie. Of course 1 of the Latias died but his spirit is shown so thats why decided to have 2 of each. The 2 red female Latias's are in the background. (Two of them are Pokemon GO imports.)

Ouch. I've never understood the resetting raids idea. Think thats a large part of why I have 999 of the exp candies and ores.
Yea it's frustrating. Ah.

Missed the Alolan Vulpix shiny event but to be honest not the biggest loss as I'd probably want to breed that with egg moves and hidden ability anyway. Still I've now managed to move over all the legendary Pokemon into a single game including the unevolved ones like Type: Null & Cosmog. The only one i'm missing (not counting mythicals) is Kubfu but I have both its evolved forms and I'll probably set up a new file for that one at some point just to complete the set. Started Matsuda Method hunting for a shiny Unovan Yamask seems to be one of the longer hunts as already reached 630 eggs and yet to arrive.

Got my Kibo Pikachu this morning, and spent most of the day breeding hidden ability mons that I've been meaning to while Surprise trading Dratini Breedjects. I was able to give a decent amount of them away on Discord, but in the end, there were just too many! On the plus side, I got two legendaries that I didn't have, (Ente and Landorous) and a shiny Eevee. I thought it might be hacked, but when I checked it at the Pokemon center it had memories with its previous trainer, it's stats were consistent with being a breedject, (it was 5iv@ lv1) and its name didn't end in ".com" so I'm pretty sure it's legit. Eiether someone is really generous or they traded their shiny one away by mistake. (Which is why my shiny Dratini went in the FURTHEST box away from the ones I was surprise trading. :p)

Finally tackled a huge PITA: Organized my Home boxes and created a Living Dex. My National Dex is at 884, just missing the main Mythical 14 entries. Living Dex is only missing 103 mons, but I should be able to fill that out to just the Mythical 14 pretty quickly. A dozen or so are foreign named mons that need to be replaced with English ones.

Once I get the new Living Dex up to snuff I’ll go through all my surplus mons and probably release or give away most of the extras/multiples. Spring Cleaning early. I connect Home on my iPad, a 12.9 Pro...they sure have an opportunity to make Home a fantastic app for mon storage, trading, organization, etc. Just need to enable more management ability and function. Hopefully as time goes on, they’ll make it better and better. It’d be a shame if they fail to see the possibilities and don’t improve it.

I just finished the story portion of the Galarian Star Tournament & now it's just battling & leveling up my pokemon for fun. I can now focus on my playthrough of Pokemon Y, but it's weird yet slightly good that I've finally finished Pokemon Sword

My current team is my team from my original playthrough:
  • Cinderace
  • Corviknight
  • Obstagoon
  • Flapple
  • Grapploct
  • Grimmsnarl

Decided that its time to start a new game on my alt account. My only goal with this account is to farm for legendaries.

Gonna try and get through the game as fast as possible, so I'm just gonna build a pre-wild area team and just blast through the game. Has the FWG core as well as some powerful additional picks.

Scorbunny
G-Zigzagoon
Hoothoot
Magikarp
Grubbin
Seedot

Going with Grubbin instead of Yamper so I have a strong Sp. Attacker. Also I always pick Yamper so its just different altogether. Same with Hoothoot.

Try to understand.
I started a Sword file.

After multiple resets, I got a Scorbunny with an alright nature and pretty good stats.

I now have a Rookidee, Nickit, Blipbug, and Caterpie.

I will probably go for Grubbin as well before going for Route 2 Pokemon.

So, I got three badges now. I'm being fairly slow about this cause I have had irl stuff pop up, but anyways;

Raboot
G-Linoone
Noctowl
Gyarados
Charjabug
Eldegoss

Swapped out Seedot for Eldegoss after managing to catch a Modest one on the bridge. Thinking that it's time to hit up Charjabug with a Thunder Stone. If I were to choose the MVP of the team, I'd say its Gyarados. It's super strong and wipes most trainers I come against.

After erasing the EV’s of a shiny guzzlord I received in a wonder box trade to double check it’s stats for potential hacks, I checked the latest round of trades to see a shiny seedot waiting for me. So that’s now sitting on sword waiting with the other shiny Pokemon while I decide how to train it.

I am now fulling around in the Isle of Armor. I will reset for the A. Sandshrew that you get from getting 30 Diglett.
