    I'm pretty damn happy with this, especially if it is in place of the tired "third version" formula they've always done.

    That Pokemon Direct was so sick! Excited for all the new stuff. Plus, it's TWO expansions?! We are spoiled. They're probably working on more for 2021 as well, who knows! SO HYPED!

    Tough times don't last, tough people do.

    Came here to see the reaction versus a lot on Twitter. I agree this is better than trudging through an entire third game that is essentially the same thing.

    Just give us the pokemans

    Re: Pokemon Sword and Shield

    I'd certainly reached a wall in my copy of Pokemon Sword after filling my dex and hatching several shiny Pokemon.

    Luckily, I've been obsessed with Animal Crossing since that came out. But, this DLC still can't come soon enough.

    Definitely a huge relief to see that they're making proper attempts to add more of the monsters that were left out of the base-game. I was never one of those people who felt personally attacked by the weak roster, or entitled to a better one. But, I definitely felt the omissions. Here's hoping that they keep adding them until we have all (or as close to all) of them as possible.

    Re: Pokemon Sword and Shield

    I've still not found a shiny in SwSh despite four hundred hours into the game. I've got plenty imported from previous games, but nothing for SwSh. I know that you can join other people's raid battles for shinies, but I've never tried to get into one of those.


    I did get my special coloured Magearna once they patched Pokemon Home, which is neat.


    The DLC really needs to hurry up though. Gen 8 competitive is really stale at the moment because the metagame is stagnant and there's little scope for originality - it's not quite as bad as Gen V competitive, but it's probably the most boring meta I've played. While I can't say I'm thrilled about Lando-T coming back to rule the world in the DLC, I do think it needs to be freshened up a lot. Zarude's signature move has me worried as it sounds very broken for competitive.

    Ordered my Switch Lite this morning with Sword, so can finally get on this hype. Only a few months late

    Re: Pokemon Sword and Shield

    What do you guys make of the DLC so far? I'm still working through the story (won't spoil what has happened so far for others), but have spent most of my time so far either being chased by Sharpedos or trying to find Diglett.

    Really happy about the Pokemon that they have added in - Scyther is one of my favourites so picking one up straight at Level 60 was cool.

    Re: Pokemon Games Discussion Thread

    Ran through the DLC last night, enjoyed it a fair bit. Short and the level scaling wasn't perfect. But I was just happy to get to use a lot of my old favourites again.

    Some more welcome QOL changes too like recycling bottle caps too.

    Bumped into my first Sword and Shield shiny in the DLC yesterday. Shiny Heracross. Ugly as sin, but I like it.

    Heracross is like my fave Pokemon. I'm so jealous I want to kill you.

    If you've got Pokemon Home don't forget to pick up your Shiny Zeraora. Got mine this afternoon.

    If you've got Pokemon Home and a Nintendo online account, then you sync your game up with Home. Then move any pokemon from Sword and Shield to Home. That unlocks Zeraora as a Mystery Gift on Home.
