Is it in Emerald too ? I forgot about this detail tbh

I've actually never played Emerald so I don't know, I always assumed that Gen 4 was where they decided to change it so the Running Shoes work everywhere. This was something I immediately noticed right when Pearl and Diamond came out. I remember running laps around the Sandgem Pokemon Center in excitement over the fact that I could run in there.

Beat the main story in legends arceus but the game has unskippable credits

I REALLY HATE UNSKIPPABLE CREDITS

Eh, ragazzo!
Think of it in the mind of a developer for the game. Having your name in the credits is a big deal. Why would you want people to skip them?

For me, I just want to be able to play through the postgame with the exception of X, Y, Sword and Shield without spending at least thirty minutes watching the credits roll which is why they should be optional.

To keep going forward playing the game, what else.

In my recent experience Pokemon X and Y are roughly 5-10 minutes. But at least you can speed it up by holding down the A button. But in these Gen 6 games it's tedious when you want to use the Elite 4 for leveling up and money grinding.

Omega Ruby and Ultra Sun can be skipped right away.

I said through the developers' eyes, not the consumer's.

Also, I don't know of any Pokemon credits that last for 30 minutes.

Here's a peeve i've never mentioned. Sometimes getting a male gender on a pokemon like Primarina, Togekiss or Gardevoir...for example rarely want Gallade, i don't want Gardevoir or Primarina to remind me of male drag queens.
I don't really see togekiss in this situation.... it a cute plane...
I like having femboys in my team XD

I’m having some pretty bad luck finding most of the Baby Pokémon in Legends. All I’ve managed to catch are Elekid, Mantyke, and Budew. Togepi, Happiny, Pichu, and Cleffa refuse to spawn for me and every Magby and ChinglingI find seems to enjoy running away from me even when I engage a battle. I keep KO Munchlax by mistake and Bonsly will target me but as soon as I start a battle, it flees!

That's a big reason why breeding is such a blessing in the older games.

They really should improve the spawn rates for all baby pokemon (with less chance of fleeing. In PLA Chansey will try to flee A LOT) or give us a breeder in Jubilife Village. Even if it's not available early before you defeat at least 2 of the Nobles.

I think I did manage to get a Chansey by pure luck. And I did get an Alpha Blissey. It’s Happiny that I really need.

I'm in a terrible mood. I've waited for several different day types and been using Cobalt Coastlines Bathers Lagoon. (It's the easiest one to get too) But Togepi refuses to spawn. I just get several Chansey, Happiny, Aipoms, a occasional Alpha Ampibom, Murkrow and etc.

But not a single Togepi for 2 hours Why does this game hate me right now :mad: The other locations are terrible including travel distance to camp for resetting. And i don't want to reset too often if i lose too many Wing Balls/Jet Ball throws.

Looks like another pokemon, this time Togekiss from Pokemon Sword will be going into the Home Box waiting so i can fill my dex. I've had enough for now.

Why are they releasing so many mainline games so close to each other now? Gen 9 is releasing later this year, Legends released in January, and BDSP released Last November! They haven't even finished patching up BDSP yet, let alone updating home to be compatible with these games!

To make matters worse, Pokemon Go is going to eventually have all those 1000+ pokemon and forms, and it's a Phone game!

There's actually a 3 or 4-year gap between the first games of each generation. Between SwSh (Nov 2019) and SV (Nov 2022), that's 3 years.

We got a slew of updates post credits mission and minor additions but no HOME compatibility. Good grief i was hoping for that compatibility update all week.
The new gen 9 announcement just got me meh bored for now.

Gen 9 has only been revealed and all ready the grass cat starter has jokes about it being sexy/furbait, weed smoking, and fears that it will stand up on two legs when it evolves!
Yes the ever looming threat of internet rules. To put it simply Rule 46 "If it exists there is, furry of it." Add that to Rule 34 "If it exists, there is porn of it." :(
It's no wonder no pokemon is safe.
Gardevoir is a big example how internet fan-art personification of something popular, can cause devastating results. I also wonder if there's also Lopunny also exists to make fun of the Playboy logo.

Honestly, all the talk of the graphics and frame rate drops bothers me and makes me wonder when did this series become about graphics and other visual aspects rather than gameplay?
I believe it's because the gameplay has plateau'd. There can be optimisations to the gameplay, but in the same way that graphics and framerate can be improved.
