The Isle of Armor & The Crown Tundra DLC - RUMOR & SPECULATION Thread [Spoilers]

Getting a guaranteed catch for the Legendaries is a big relief, people would likely to be stocking up on matching Poke Balls now in the lead up the CT. Still a bit conflicted on the rental system though.
I assume the rental system is supposed to serve as some sort of anti-trolling system for online aka preventing jerks from using crap like earthquake or sludge wave intentionally to ruin things.

Huh, I can actually safely use the rare Poké Balls? I got a lot of Apricorns. Maybe I'll go try my luck at the Cram-o-matic some more then. I haven't gotten a rare one yet, but it's worth a shot. (Beast Balls are still rendered pointless, it seems.)

Do you still have to defeat the Legendary Pokémon?
Yes. The only thing that people weren’t sure of is if the legendary pokemon have shields or not (didn’t show in gameplay them).

I remember the Mewtwo and the Zeraora event requiring really strong Pokmon beat to the point where not even using Pokemon like Zacian and Eternatus is a questionable a choice considering they get ohko by them at worst. The mewtwo in the live stream doesn't appear to be as strong as the event one and using a battle factory like raids is actually neat in hindsight.
 
Tbh idk what Team I should use. If I choose a weaker one I get overleveled and a stronger one I one-shot everything

I created a brand new game in Sword by creating another user. I am currently in Monostoke and need to go to the hotel. I caught some of the Pokémon from the IoA but haven’t gotten Kubfu yet. On the Isle, I got my Style card and uniform. I am so ready for the CT.

You might as well one shot everything and get those legendary pokemon caught. I’m sure there will be a decent level for them (maybe what they are in most games level 50-60 or a little lower? Hmmm...)

I'm glad they're guaranteed, it'd suck to do all that work only for it to break out and make you do it again. I was never fond of that raid mechanic, it took 80 raids to catch Giga Drednaw! 80! Everyone else was 1-3 max

I like filling the dex without transferring on my main game/save for each release

For my newest game, I’m using Jigglypuff for the entire run and so far it has been a big help. It currently knows Disarming Voice, Echoed Voice, Round, and Rest. Rest will be replaced by Draining Kiss as soon as I obtain the TM. I also just evolved my Shiny Melton into Melmetal. It is currently at a low level perfect for this save.

Has anyone noticed that Calyrex has Tri-Force symbols all around it's neck?

Oh lord, Dynamax Zygarde, Giratina, Lugia, and Cresselia are going to be so tiring to take down. Imagine them... with double the HP! Especially if Zygarde activiates Power Construct halfway through!

So excited for this DLC, I hope they are some hidden stuff to find (come on Galarian Jynx!). But even if there isn't, I am super excited for the new Regis and Galarian Birds.

I'm hoping you can fuse the new Regis with the other Regis to make some new pokemon Regi based. That would be so cool if it's true. I know Calyrex has that capability, (based on everything posted here) so why not make the Regis fuse?

You know what, there's actually just one thing I want to know for certain when the CT finally comes around later this week: I want to fully check and confirm if Garchomp gets Dragon Dance or not. Just going straight through the main point and fully check if Garchomp can learn Dragon Dance via TR. I will not believe anything from that supposed TR list for returning mons released like months ago via datamine or whatever specifically for Dragon Dance until I check it ingame myself :>

Not sure why, when there is literally no reason to think that the datamine is made up.

Look I can understand being skeptical of rumors and stuff like that, however at this point it seems more like your being skeptical just to be skeptical.

I mean if you hadn’t notice the rumors don’t really try to pass themselves off as datamines. Where so far when it comes to the main series Pokémon games the datamines tend to be legit.

I mean heck datamines for Pokémon Sword and Shield came out before the games came out like days before the games come out.

Yet somehow it’s hard to believe that they could datamine Isle of Armor and also find some Crown Tundra information? Are you kidding me.

Look this isn’t a case where it’s like oh well the datamine could be real or could be fake. Literally multiple people datamine the games when they get there hands on it.

I mean I don’t think you understand how datamine works, the data miners will datamine the game as soon as they possibly can and will share what they found with everyone else.


There is no advantage to lieing about a datamine because there will be plenty of people who will have actually datamined the game and will be able to easily debunked any false information or misinformation about a datamine.


So basically the datamine is legit.

It’s less about the dataminers being trustworthy and more that information in the files isn’t always an exact 1-1 to what’s actually in the game. For instance, Azumarill was said to get High Horsepower in the Pokemon Home TR/TM datamine but ended up not getting it once it returned in the Isle of Armor. So while the datamine is most likely legit, some things can be inaccurate to what was found initially.

Exactly this basically. Who’s to say that files that get datamined are all going to be exact when things release for real when that’s just unrealistic to begin with since there’s going to be crap that (likely) ends up being inaccurate.
