Game Freak has left a LOT of hints regarding the DLC in the game. It appears to be a large scale DLC, as the game already has support for multiple Pokédexes. There's also some leftover data that hints at Pokémon that will be returning in the DLC. More in the coming days.

Yeah, I figured when Dexit was announced for SWSH GameFreak would move in a DLC direction

Fine by me. I don't mind DLC.

Looks like presets downloads are starting. I just the email from Nintendo confirming my digital purchase for Violet and adding funds to my account and an email from Best Buy about my Double Pack order.

Haven't received my e-mail from Best Buy yet. But that's maybe because it's a holiday today in Canada. Probably get it on Monday.

I just got my purchase confirmation from the eShop. And it's a holiday in the states as well or I'd be opening some Silver Tempest booster packs today. Also thank you to all who served in the military, wherever you served.

Oh I love how the wild battle music is diverse! So when entering a wild battle, you hear an upbeat / remixed version of the route you are in!

HOME move update

When you transfer a Pokémon from a previous gen to SV it forgets all moves and learns the moves that Pokémon would have at that level if it was found in the wild in Paldea.

Also a reminder that all generational transfers are one way only. Unless they do it differently this time, which we doubt, once you transfer a Pokémon to Scarlet/Violet it can't be transfered back to Gen 8.


Shiny Update

Paradox Pokemon and Legendary Quartet not shiny locked

I know SwSh didn't have the capability to celebrate your birthday in game at launch. Any news about whether SV asks for your birthday?

Honestly I'm not sure how I feel about this. There is a lot, especially, regarding Tera that is not explained in the base game.
It is great that the DLC will be large, but I don't like the idea of locking important story beats behind DLC. SwSh's DLC did a good job of making the DLC connected to the main story without you really missing out on any story beats if you didn't play it.

Well, to be honest, there is just a different story for SV that is apparently quite good.

I feel like its taking the same beats of SWSH DLC, but much more connected.

Just popping in because I saw something about Egg Moves. Do we know if traditional breeding is in the game or if Eggs are tied solely to the picnic feature?
