    So! Isle of Armour has LANDED!

    I kind of want to put Avery and Bede in the same room and watch them try to out-smug each other.

    I'm having a little buyers remorse about getting the expansion, tbh, I was hoping that mayyyyybe, just mayyybe there would be some decent endgame fights but so far, the closest was the final fight against Klara which I won w/o a single mon fainting. Now I'm grumpy because 1, you have to chose between towers and i want all the battles, and 2 and most importantly, i have to apparently do all the fighting in the towers with the dumb kungfu bear instead of a pokemon i actually like...

    Nintendo plz just give me one challenging battle. I've lost 1 fight in the whole game, and that was against the fire leader with my self imposed restrictions (can only bring the same # of pokes to the fight as the leader has; no items outside hold items; no dynamaxing)

    the actual setting of the isle is a bit of an improvement on the base game--there are definitely more nooks and crannies to discover, and the find all the diglett quest is driving me crazy, but not in a bad way. it still feels pretty empty. very very few quests, no trainers, no history or lore. it's frustrating cause we know game freak can give a place a real distinctive feeling with small judicious touches (the Johto region shines especially with this. Just a few bits of dialogue, some signs, and some special visual or soundtrack accents and each location has an identity). It's nice to see a few of my fav pokes back (Hi Marill! Hi Rockruff!) but filling up the dex is the least interesting of the core pillars of pokemon to me.

    sigh, i heard that crown tundra might be more exploration focused. idk if that's true but one can hope...

    I have achieved mission: get a Gengar (in go, anyways)! Today is Gastly day if anyone wants to hop on, if you use an incense and have a ton of pokeballs on hand you should have a decently powered Gengar in about 20 minutes!

    Why do some of the wild pokemon I see in pokego have different clothes on? I'm not referring to the ones who mysteriously always have clothes, I mean like I have a pikachu with a sunhat and sunglasses from a while ago and I assumed it was part of a special thing but I just caught a crogunk with a snapback on and I am very confused

    It's a special event. The event Pokemon usually turn up at a higher spawn rate for like a week, and then the normal versions will be back at their normal rates. The majority are Pikachu variants, but there's also, e.g., Buneary with a flower crown, or Bulbasaur in a Shedinja mask.

    I finally started pokemon sword a couple hours ago and grookey is so small? Ive never been quite able to process exactly how itty bitty starters were, compared to human sizes. He's so incredibly bitty. Babey monkey boy with a poking stick

    The starters getting smaller with each generation is due to Nintendo's pressure on Gamefreak to make making life-sized toys easier /s

    I support this trend because imagine if starters end up small enough for trainers to do this?

    I think there was one Pokédex entry about Starmie floating to the surface during nighttime to watch the stars, too.

    TwoBrokenMirrors Merely a whitebait in the mayo of life

    So i'm doing pokemon headcanon posts in my bijou if anyone's super interested. I may not turn them out super duper fast but i love doing them so feel free to request
    they are my headcanons based on my personal interpretation which is fairly utopian and may not match up with yours, but i don't think i go further out of bounds than your given pokemon character ask blog on tumblr. if you're concerned just read the ones i've already done and see if you like them, lmao
