Pokemon Sword/Shield (Switch)

  • @keir Both the Star Sweet and the Ribbon Sweet were previously completely unobtainable, and only Strawberry Sweet Gigantamax Alcremie were previously obtainable, but the Milcery during this Raid Event can have the Gigantamax Gene, meaning they'll evolve into Gigantamax Alcremie, opening the possibility of literally any Alcremie you could possibly want finally! Since the Milcery Raids right now are what reward Ribbon Sweets and Star Sweets, you might want to stock up on those, since there's no guarantee you'll be able to get them after the Wild Area Event for these ends.

  • Damn. I really, really hate time limited stuff like this. Pretty depressing having to check in all the time with games just so you don’t miss content like this.

  • @keir Well you have until the end of February 16th to grab them. This is just how devs maintain interest in games over time today, because there's such a culture around gobbling up all the content as fast as possible and immediately barreling forward to the next thing.

  • @mbun I suppose that’s true, and another disappointing aspect of modern video games. I just can’t help but feel like it’s impossible to keep up with more than a handful of titles properly and as a result you’re making a choice about which to have incomplete experiences playing.

  • As always, can't promise I'll always post all of these, but here's some new codes for free Mystery Gift stuff in SwSh:

    G1GAGRANF1NALE : 10 Heal Balls

  • The embodiment of FLCL is finally releasing on the 7th it seems as part of a new Wild Area event:

  • @Mbun any ideas if G-Max forms only available in events like these (Snorlax, Tox) will able some of the normal Pokémon that are able to become G-Max with the Isle of Armour DLC?

    For me, this would be an important step in keeping the content available indefinitely.

  • @keir I'd guess limited time. The only ones I'd expect to be upgraded to G-Max versions MAYBE is the starters, so people wouldn't have to replace the Pokemon they started with. Everything else, you need to play the events for.

  • Pokemon Twilight's Wings Episode 2 will be released on February 18.

    And now for the real reason I'm updating this topic, here's some more codes you can redeem on Mystery Gift:

    PUNKR0CK : x3 TR 94 (High Horsepower)
    C0MPET1T10N : 1 Bottle Cap

    As always, can't promise I'll always post all of these.

  • Silhouettes takes me back to Gen 5. That's going to be fun to see the artist guesses over it again.

  • Apparently GTS is only available for Pokemon Home through the mobile app, so there goes the one thing it'd be useful for, although I'm seeing that just by filling my free box with any dumb Pokemon, Home will generate points each day that can be converted to BP for games like SwSh, so I'll probably load my free box with junk and just farm BP passively with Home.

  • Quite the unexpected list. My boy Kabu hanging in there! All the responses to Hop's placement are priceless.

  • Happy Pokemon Day. Beat up Mewtwo. Get Mushrooms. You can't catch them.

  • Here's the new Mythical revealed for Pokemon Day. Can't imagine Kyle will be happy considering it is just an ugly monkey that doesn't even have a special ability or anything.

  • First impression of Isle of Armor expansion: this region somehow feels more ambitious than the entire main game. Obviously much smaller in scope than the wild area and it's still constrained by the (fairly simplistic) mechanics of the main game, but I've already felt a much greater sense of discovery in my first three hours here than I felt in the entire Wild Area. World design is still not on the level of something like Breath of the Wild, obviously, or even Dragon Quest XI, but it's definitely a step in the right direction. It feels much more like an actual sandbox, as opposed to one long corridor. We'll see how I feel when all is said and done, though, since I was similarly optimistic when I first started Sword.
