Revenge never solves anything and we have no intentions of doing that.

There's a saying that practice makes perfect. You have to keep trying and trying till you get better. Sure, pokken can be tough, but  you won't get any improvements by not trying your best.

Anyways as of news goes, Pokken DX for switch and Pokémon G/S/C for the 3DS VC are coming up next week. If you get pokemon G/S/C on the launch day, you'll get a special code distribution for pokemon (ultra) sun / moon. As revealed from Nintendo direct, more information for ultra sun / moon have been shown. You can check serebii or watch the video for more info. Pokken DX demo for the switch is available, but it will only last you for 15 battles.

For pokemon duel, Room matches now contains halls and has some rules when participating them. Arbiter halls can only be used for the upcoming gym cup matches. the Pokémon from sun / moon are now available as well and 6 boosters are no longer available from this point on so it's all 10 booster packs when available and it cost 500 gems. Pokemon's Level cap can be increased by using carominites in a fusion and the amount of carmonites required depends on the rarity of the pokemon's figure such as 100 carmonites each to increase a level cap for EX figures.

GOOD NEWS!!

I bought Pokken Tournament DX for the Switch today. (It came out today)

However...

I've got a VERY LARGE gaming backlog.

So it will likely be a VERY LONG time before I get around to it.

However... once I do...

I promise to post my Switch Friend Code on here.

SO YOU ALL CAN GET YOUR CLEARLY WANTED AND LONG-AWAITED REVENGE ON ME.

As I said before revenge isn't gonna solve your problems and we have no intentions of doing that.

There was a pokken DX demo, but it only lasts for 15 battles. The gameplay is all the same as the wii-u's with new contents. My friend has the original version for the wii-u and I was hoping to play it if my brother was able to get it if that is if he has the money to buy it. The system is my brother's though, but was permitted to borrow it till further notice and the game cost about $60 + tax (no tax if digital copy).

It's not only pokken DX that was released, but also pokemon G/S as well. You'll get celebi and 3DS theme for purchasing either gold or silver. All rules from R/B/Y apply which is no suspension and restore points. Trades are wireless communication (3DS > 3DS). If you forgot your code for celebi and 3DS theme, it will be on your e-mail.

Has anyone started playing Ultra Sun/Moon yet?

If so, how are y'all finding it?

I started playing at November 20th after the preparations for the transfers were done although I did finish it during my vacation and It wasn't easy though. I normally keep exp. share off for full enjoyment of the game.

I normally leave it switched off as well. Exp. Share is a crutch.

I thought Sun/Moon was good, but Ultra Sun/Moon looks to be more of the same. Would you recommend?

There are additional stories, UBs, moves, and Z-Moves in ultra sun / moon however the restrictions apply the same as ORAS which is that you can't use new UBs, new pokemon forms like lycanroc dusk form, necrozma's ultra form, and partner cap Pikachu, new Z-Moves, and new moves, but these restrictions apply when you battle and/or trade someone that are playing the original version of pokemon sun / moon. Pokemon and Item locations are different this time as well.

I thought I heard they added Mareep in the wild of Ultra Sun/Moon, which I wanted to catch in the previous game.

But it looks like the other Pokémon I want to catch have to be caught using that Island Scan or using the Bank. It may be my crotchety, Gen. 1 sensibilities but I'd rather just catch my team in the wild instead of going through all of them hoops. This has been my issue with these new Pokémon games, but I guess it makes sense if you want to use that "different Pokémon for different geographical regions" argument.

 

But from your input and from what I've read, it looks to be a good game. I'm mainly interested in the Pokémon and the story since I don't have anyone IRL to play it with and I don't play online, but you've given me much to think about.

Thanks for your input!

Well your best bet to find people to play pokemon is around the shopping mall or outlet areas, and streetpass meet-ups. It's hard to find people who are playing pokemon, but their 3DS is pretty much noticeable although you can't tell if they're playing pokemon or not so that's the thing.

You can transfer pokemon from your original sun / moon > ultra sun / moon however after the 4th grand trial, the level cap for traded pokemon will be at 85 so it's not like the original versions. if you're using high leveled pokemon, only use them when you need to buy the time to recover your team.

For sure, but I'm not really fixin' to play with other people right now, to be honest. I've been playing it strictly casually for the last few games. I find keeping up with the meta is way too much of a hassle for me and I'd probably get constantly annihilated anyways.

 

I'm also weird in the sense that catching the Pokémon in-game instead of transferring them usually makes the game more genuine for me.

Like, sure I could transfer my Pokemon from Moon, but I feel I'd miss out on the intricacies and the nuances that come with putting together a team that you can only get by catching them in the wild, you know? Especially now that there's new Pokémon in the wild.

But that's just me. Not trying to bash your input or anything.

 

But except for the story, Ultra Sun/Moon seems to be structurally the same as Sun/Moon, so if anything, I might just need to do some transferring if it calls for it since I don't really have the time for serious grinding at the moment. So it looks like I'll probably be using that crutch after all.

The thing is that if you get 1 version, you have to trade pokemon to fill your pokedex up. if you get both versions, then you need 2 3DSs of any model to trade or if you have a pokemon bank, you can transfer pokemon through physical or digital copies.

That's good to know since I have the digital copy of Moon, though I'm not really knowledgeable on the actual Bank process.

But I'm not one for filling up the Pokédex either. As I previously mentioned, I've become an extreme casual since Gen. 4 and I feel I can just google a Pokémon's stats if I really want to know them, you know?

Well serebii is the only source on the information you got so I normally rely on that site whenever I need some information off from it. Ultra sun / moon is just another straightforward game so no guides needed unless you need to know which trainers uses what pokemon. Some trials remain the same except for grass, and electric trials which are changed and some totem pokemon have changed as well so plan your team carefully.

That's also good to know. I don't remember the electric trial but I remember absolutely loathing the grass trial. Hopefully they changed it for the better.

And I don't remember having any difficulty with the totem Pokémon, so switching them up is a nice touch.

Well the grass trial is that you have to look for the ingredients without fighting any pokemon who has their eyes on it so you gotta keep a close look on the message and your surroundings. Electric trial is a puzzle type so it's a self-explanatory. the totem pokemon that also changed in ultra sun / moon was kommo-o. it's holding a berry that lowers damage from fairy-type attacks, but also calls in scizor for help.

I suppose that's one way to improve the grass trial from Sun/Moon.

Poke pelago has also changed, but the only isle that's changed is evelup. Once the play session is done, you have the option to claim your pokemon that was placed in the isle or play longer.

I didn't use that feature as much as I probably should've.

My First Shiny Pokémon

Funny thing is, I was looking for a Passimian when I found it.

 

Congrats, catching a Bonsly in the wild is rare to begin with, ain't it?

 

I was playing Black 1 years ago when I caught my first and only shiny... but it was a Pidove:applebelch:

Nice. if you think that's lucky, try catching a shiny pokemon very early or at the beginning of the game. Last time It happened to me when I was trying to prepare to transfer some of my pokemon that I prepared for ultra sun on my original sun version and my 1st shiny of ultra sun / moon was a shiny buneary and got extremely lucky on it even without the shiny charm.
