    so whenever someone trade you a pokemon and you keep it and have it in your competitive team do you feel like that pokemon is truly yours? like do you have a special bond with that pokemon like you do with the pokemon you caught or breed?

    The one time I tried out Wonder Trade in X and Y, I ended up with a level 1 female Joltik in exchange for my Tyrunt. I didn't see this as a bad trade, Joltik/Galvantula are among my favourite Electric-types, so I used Joltik on my team, got a good bit of use out of her and was I ultimately happy. As far as I was concerned Galvantula was my Pokemon even though I got her from someone else.

    I want to give Smeargle Imprison and Recover so I can SOS Corsola without it recovering. I already have Recover and Sketch. What do I do? Is there a Pokemon that naturally knows both?

    I somewhat agree however I have no idea how much there struggling with the game so I can't really say if I want GF to slow down on the games however now that there moving from ds to switch maybe they will and if they do I think 2/3 years is a pretty good time to wait and a decent time for GF to make a game in HOWEVER I only believe that if it gets us better pokemon games with stuff like better graphics a national dex megas just overall bigger and better and it gives GF a bit of slack

    If they aren't gonna slow down with the releases, they need to get a much bigger team of devs, they have WAY MORE THAN ENOUGH MONEY to pay for extra employees. A split team of 143+ (71+, after the math) isn't gonna cut it developing two flagship games for a franchise that brings in $95 billion dollar franchise. Ubisoft has around 9000 employees and can handle multiple franchises with near-yearly releases (even with spinoffs thrown in) on tighter budgets than Game Freak can. The games are most definitely better coded, have better graphics, and don't have to resort to removing features because they didn't have enough time or didn't sort out their priorities. (Personally, the last two generations felt like an assignment that a student wrote up the morning it's due. The games look polished but the problems with them are pretty glaring, and they keep feeling unfinished, especially when they never develop or take any chances on any cool concepts that come by. *cough*Zygarde*cough*)

    I agree and I hope they realise that these games aren’t ds games I assume it’s gonna be a bit more work for them and I assume that a ds game is slightly different to a switch game (this is only an assumption so I could be completely wrong) and maybe there not as skilled in this department

    Just think of the DS as being a vastly improved SNES, while the 3DS and Switch could be compared as majorly improved and/or portable versions of the Gamecube and Wii, respectively.
    The DS and SNES are mainly sprite-based consoles with some cool 3d capabilites when pushed to their limits, . The 3DS and Switch were made as 3d consoles. 3D is gonna require some more time and effort because of that extra axis. (And transferring 3d models between the 3ds and switch was most definitely a piece of cake for them to do; the "had-to-make-the-models-from-scratch" excuse they made is just a ruse, they left out the national dex for some other development reason.) Game Freak has mainly been a 2d handheld game dev up until the start of the decade, and it really shows.

    in a interview with gameinformer GF said that there reason for not expanding is because they’re worried about communication, in the sense of it’s going to be a hassle to explain dynamaxing to thirty plus people, which there’s nothing wrong with being worried about that but communication shouldn’t be a issue for the biggest entertainment franchise in this world.

    I rarely used traded Pokemon in my old playthroughs of the games, but in recent years I've been using traded Pokemon more often and half of my UltraMoon team is made up of Pokemon that weren't originally mine. I think that all Pokemon are the same now, but when I was younger I had this thing where I didn't feel a connection to traded Pokemon.

    I still maintain that X and Y were actually really good games.

    Same here, issues aside, I still enjoy the games. Especially for shiny hunting.

    Man time sure flies. I remember buying X the week after it came out and getting stuck in Lumiose City because of a glitch. I got that fixed with a patch, but it kind of turned me off the game and I didn't play it again until a year later.

    Know this is randomly sudden, but I always imagined an ice type counterpart of Snorlax named Chillax.
