    i don't know if you noticed but at 14:51 in the gym challenge your miraidon is shiny. for some reason the miraidon/koraidon you're riding is not shiny locked during in that gym challenge and you got it. you cant keep it or anything so it's worthless but it's cool that you got it

    "We're able to revive it with the power of subway."
    I'm glad everyone finds the power of sandwiches in this region absurd. But since we're able to make sandwiches that make it more likely for ghosts to show up, I feel it's acceptable in lore.

    Awesome video :)
    I was wondering, I don't know how many people actually still use it, but I've found your Google Sheet that shows the best way to get the living dex in Pokemon Home extremely useful.
    I've found it a couple weeks back and its helped me get to around 50% so far.
    I was wondering if you're thinking about updating it with Scarlet/Violet? :)
    Since it obviously contains quite some Pokemon again, which could maybe help eliminate some older games possibly?

    My catchmon was the T-Normal Scyther with a static spawn early on. No status move, but able to grab 150% damage on False Swipe and switch defensive type when it counts e.g against rock, and with Eviolite it could tank a lot of hits. And with Twave on so many mons, status was always an option if I needed it.

    can confirm filling the dex is pretty easy for most part in scarlet and violet. its only taken me a week (this is also with a fulltime job), and i got less than 50 to go with most of them being exclusives.

    It shocks me how few people realize you get free rewards from your pokedex every 10 new pokemon you register. Open your dex and click x. I didn't realize this until I was at 300 and the animations took like 5 min. You get some good shit that way

    It almost certainly took you more than 32 hours. Small Ant discovered that the in game time is calculated through frames, not real world time. He had been playing for 16 hours and the game only logged 14.5 hours due to the drops in framerate. Will be very interesting to see if this can be done in less than 24 hours though!

    At 19:12 you say Applin is exclusively available on trees & a rare spawn. That is not true! There are specific spots where Applin can actually be found close to trees (as well as on them!) and it spawns relatively frequently as well.

    This man's reaction to Pawmi's evolution shows to me that I'm not alone in thinking most of the Pokemon in this... Are kinda stupid. The fuck is up with Pawmi, anyways, that's not an evolution. That's just it going "Oh yeah, I can be bipedal, I guess".
    And I swear to fuck, I already know some brainlet is going to try and be all "DUR, MUK IS JUST BIGUR SLIEM, DUR, MAGNETON JUS MOAR MAGNET"... And to the lot of you going to say that, I sincerely hope you find thumbtacks in your next meal.

    Taunt, healing pulse, false swipe, hypnosis Gallade is actually the best shiny hunter in pokemon too. Has been for a few gens now. Taunt stops stuff like memento and perish song, heal pulse stops self damaging moves and weather, and false swipe and hypnosis are self explanatory. Only thing he doesn't stop is explosion/self-destruct, so make sure to have a mon with damp. Also raise Kirlia to at least lvl 43 before evolving. Gallade doesn't learn heal pulse by level up and it isn't a tm. Kirlia learns it at 43 tho, so if you wait until then to evolve you can have it on your Gallade. And if you find a mon that has an ability that neutralizes other abilities like neutralizing gas and also explodes, like Galarian Weezing, buddy just use your master ball that boy's gonna blow

      Hidden Ability Parasect is the best damp mon btw. Only one that can learn false swipe. Also he gets spore which is great. I still prefer Gallade for my general hunting tho due to heal pulse and taunt helping my crippling anxiety. No mons currently in Scarlet/Violet can have damp and learn False Swipe

    23:57 I did ! I never spoil myself how to evolve new Pokémon, I love to spend hours trying to find how, and up until now the only Pokémon I've never found how to evolve and had to spoil myself was Runerigus.
    But to be fair, Kingambit's evolution was really easy to find, you just had to read the Leader's Crest description and Bisharp's Pokédex description, those were HUGE clues.

    • Fukano
      Fukano Před 12 dny +1

      @Fai ღ Oooh, I did not know the specifics ! What I did was I gave him the Crest, and defeated a bunch of other Bisharp, and at some point after an hour or so, he evolved after leveling up !
      To be fair it happens a lot of the times, I get the evolution but I don't exactly know how I did it, a good example is Overqwil/Wyrdeer from PLA, I thought completing their dex pages was what is required, because they evolved soonish after I completed Hisuian Qwilfish and Stantler pages, but when I checked weeks after I realized you did not need to do all that lol

    • Fai ღ
      Fai ღ Před 12 dny +1

    In terms of late game grinding, I found the most consistent spot to be the cave you find Iron Valiant/Roaring Moon in to be the best, level 55 CHQ set spawn pretty often in there so you’re getting anywhere from 2-4K xp per battle depending on if you have lucky egg equipped. Took me no time at all to clear up those last few evos in there.

    The classroom performance scene is so weird because immediately after you're in the same class and their animations are fine. I really think the devs accidentally programmed the scene to think you're far away, thus reducing the framerate of their anims for optimization...even though you're right there.

    Just looked at each starter line's exclusive move, and it looks to me like they have a favorite. Sound based fire type move that raises special attack afterwards but gets screwed over by sound proof, flash fire, and throat chop, a regular water move that raises your speed which is often the least useful stat, and a grass type move that never misses and always crits

      @Étourdie Having never miss is a trait that doesn't really matter ever in competitive though, the most common thing from the top of my head would be defog-ing a contrary pokemon giving it +1 evasion (commonly Serp in previous generations), for everything else 100% accuracy is good enough. Ignoring stats drops / boosts is nice on the flower trick too but it only really matters against bulk up atm as intimidate isn't really around much, flower trick is a good move don't get me wrong but the other two moves give completely unique things and flower trick is 'just' a slightly better EQ. Quaquaval is also has really strong STABs and SD so it's not super hard for him to 'get the ball rolling'.

      @TheMirksta "Effectively being 'only' a base 105 grass move" that ignores all attack/accuracy drops and all defense/evasion raises. Looking at the moves themselves, we've got sweep potential because you'll always do more damage next turn, sweep potential because it does lots of damage that can't be avoided even, and weaker surf. Besides, moxie only activates when you knock a Pokemon out, so I sure hope that you've got something else to use in order to actually get the ball rolling
      I wrote the first comment sheet looking at all of the exclusive moves just after evolving meowscarada, and I do now disagree with what I wrote. They have a clear least favorite move

      @Étourdie Nobody is claiming maxing out your speed is good, but being able to reliably boost speed while doing quite a lot of damage is very good for a sweeper with moxie.

    • TheMirksta
      TheMirksta Před 9 dny +1

      Who is the favourite then? All of the signature moves are extremely good, Meowscarada probably has the worst one, effectively being ''only'' a 105 Base damage grass move but even that one is very good.

      @Spamton G. Spamton I forgot about Moxie. With evs and a good nature, it should outspeed the 'slower' fast pokemon after one use. That's so good.

    I just finished mine this morning! Had to wait for my partner to finish up for the paradoxes, but otherwise it was much easier than expected

    This game has been the easiest to fill the dex in so far. I've never filled a dex anywhere near half before and I'm already almost done with this one.

    Ive actually found applin twice on the ground but they were in pretty random areas. Never actually seen one in a tree.

    If I knew how good sandwiches were before I was almost near-completion with the dex it would've saved me so much trouble for things like applin and hattem lol
