Does anyone have a Goomy? I’ll trade a Stonjourner for it — both equally hard to find Pokémon.




Edit: Someone made the trade!

Goomy's evolved forms are in lake of outrage during rain.
It's only in shield though.

Yeah but when I checked online, it said 2% chance. It was annoying enough to get Stonjourner at a 5% chance there, I’m trying to avoid the frustration.

What version would you recommend Sword or Shield and why?

Depends on which exclusives you like better. Personally I think Sword because then you can get a Sirfetch’d and G-Max Machamp, though Shield has G-Max Gangar and that’s pretty cool too.

Sirfetch’d is in Sword and it is the best thing about the new region. Go with Sword.

I prefer Shield for the gym leaders and the exclusives even though I didn’t use any version exclusives on my team.

Finally took the plunge on this and grabbed Sword digitally as I bounced off Act 3 of DQ11s (just too repetitive with revisiting areas and fighting harder versions of the same bosses from earlier in the game and the game had gotten pretty boring for me after 67+ hours) and need a new Switch game to keep me busy until Animal Crossing in March. I'm early, but enjoying it a lot so far. Fit the bill as I've been in a Pokemon mood as I've gotten back into to Pokemon Go a bit lately. I may give it more of a chance than I have the past Pokemon games in terms of digging deeper into things and not bouncing after finishing the story content. I'm a very casual Pokemon player having only played Y, Go and Let's Go Pickachu.

On that note, I don’t think I can get the special Pikachu from having a Let’s Go Pikachu save. I played that on my launch Switch and I’m playing Sword on my Lite. I transferred my save file but the kids in the wild area station don’t acknowledge it. From some Googling it looks like you need to transfer the save then play Let’s Go and save once on the new Switch and then it will work. I can’t do that as sold my copy.

Oh well, no biggie and not worth having kept a game I wouldn't have played again vs. selling it for $40.

Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Definitive Edition is a great game, I 100% completed it. Although I did have the sense of "I have to do this AGAIN," it’s not unlike Zelda which had a lot of repetitive moments. In The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess you have to fight King Bulblin multiple times, and in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword you have to fight The Imprisoned multiple times. Also in both games, there are other "multiple" moments, such as the tears and trials sections.

At least with Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Definitive Edition there is a gameplay benefit to it (you gain experience points to level up). There’s no gameplay benefit whatsoever in Zelda, it’s just busy work.

I caught as many Pokémon as I could in Sword via Raids and Surprise Trade and I am just missing only 9 Pokémon in order to complete the Pokédex. If anyone with Shield would be so kind to trade me these remaining Pokémon, it would be much appreciated!

No. 270 - Solosis (Trade from Shield)
*No. 271 - Duosion (Evolves from Solosis)
*No. 272 - Reuniclus (Evolves from Duosion)
No. 276 - Accelgor (Trade Karrablast for a Smelmet - Evolves from Smelmet)
No. 283 - Vullaby (Trade from Shield)
*No. 284 - Mandibuzz (Evolves from Vullaby)
No. 294 - Sableye (Trade from Shield)
No. 362 - Lunatone (Trade from Shield)
No. 399 - Zamazenta (Shield Exclusive Legendary)

And yes, I will give Zamazenta back as I only need it for the entry.

Edit: Thanks to the release of Pokémon Home, I was able to complete my Pokédex via GTS.

What are the items Leon gives you when you get to the first city? They are based on which starter you got. Like if you got Scorbunny, he gives you charcoal. What are the other two? I forget. All my held items were removed when registering in HOME (stupid GameFreak) so now I need to put them back but I don’t remember what they were.

Thinking back to Gen II, the elemental held items that I recall are Charcoal, Mystic Water, and Miracle Seed, which should correspond to the item given dependent on your chosen starter in Sword/Shield.
