Ace and Aspie, for life and light!
Killing time waiting for SV leaks by trying to Masuda a shiny Dhelmise. Started with two boxes. Also gathering Sableye eggs while I hatch the Dhelmise. Guess you could say I'm working on Anchor Management.
I want to play through SwSh again on OLED too, after I finish LGPE. Also never played Arceus or BDSP on OLED although less inclined to replay BDSP lol never realised what a difference it would be going from Lite to Oled!I decided to start playing Sword again as part of my "establish a near-100% completed file of every Pokemon game on my new Nintendo Switch OLED" as it was the only game where I knew what team I wanted to use. Currently at Wedgehurst about to board the train to the Wild Area and so far? Game has been pretty fun. I didn't realise how slow the Poke Ball shake was when you tried to capture anything (it drags on so much, gives me D/P Surf flashbacks) but beyond that the game looks great on the OLED and it's been nice to return to Galar for a fresh start.
As you can see from my team, there's been some trading occurring - I like keeping my team levels as equal as possible but Slow experience group Pokemon just ruin that! Which is a shame because those include some of my favourites. Traded experience seems to alleviate that, so I traded over a Dreepy and Hatenna via HOME (having bred them on my Sword file on my original Nintendo Switch) to use on my team early on. Dreepy knows Baton Pass so as to allow it to see some use in battles, but be quickly swapped out as and when needed. So far the Ghost typing has been very useful against all the Normal types but it's already pretty weak and dragging it around for another 41 levels just to evolve once might end in disaster? Hatenna is slow and doesn't feel super strong but I suspect it'll become more useful as enemy types diversify. Grookey is great and Rookidee was only caught after my traded duo were obtained because I wanted my entire team in different Poke Balls? Grookey is in a Poke Ball, Dreepy in an Ultra Ball, Hatenna in a Heal Ball and Rookidee in a Great Ball.

Right? I had an OG Switch (the one with the horrible battery life) and the OLED makes the game look so much better! Might be because the bigger screen means I can actually see what I'm doing, but it definitely looks good. I hope you do give SwSh another go on the OLED!I want to play through SwSh again on OLED too, after I finish LGPE.
