Ah I knew there was a forgery and authentic version of Sinistea and Polteageist but didn’t know a different item evolved it.

Yeah, that's what I have - with the little blue dot on the bottom. Had to swap it out for a Dragapult in the end because I just couldn't evolve it. :lol:


EDIT: Ah thanks Pedz that's rad, I'll PM you after work! :wub: :wub: :toot:


In more positive news I did manage to make a rainbow Alcremie. :wub:

That’s what happens when you masturbate over a rainbow.

Surprise Traders are sometimes real generous. I got a Gurdurr through one, which instantly evolved in Conkeldurr allowing me to register two 'mon at once. I've also got a few Sword exclusives through Surprise Trades as well. Half the time, though, it seems people are dumping their reject hatches through it. Which is exactly what I was doing with the Sobble as this hunt for the shiny continues. Oh, I took a bit of time away to help Pedz on some Max Raids, but I'm up to 150+ hatched.

The plus is there because I misplaced a few Sobble and couldn't count them, but I've done four boxes of Surprise Trading, with a fifth ready to go.

Anyone fancy a couple of battles tonight?

I made a full Ghost team and it's not too bad. I just need a Mimicu (sp) so I don't get steamrolled by dark types.

Is it considered ethnic cleansing to breed the foreign out of any Pokemon I get via Surprise Trade? :lol:

I kept my foreign Ditto, because I’ve heard they’re useful for Shiny breeding. But Surprise Trade has been a godsend today. Got around 6 Pokemon I needed (finally Grookey), several with multiple evolutions. Once I evolve them I think I’ll be at around 360. Most of what I need now are dependent on weather, max raids or version exclusives (never going to get Zacian in my dex :lol:).

The last time I was this hooked and legitimately trying to fill my dex was in the GBA days.

I tend to breed them just so I can have them under my name as the trainer. I don't get rid of trades though. Need the lotto numbers.

Surprise Trade is great isn't it? Tried it for the first time last night and the first four 'mon I received, in order, were Dreepy, Skwovet, Pichu and Corsola (the latter of which was particularly welcome given I'm a Sword player!) All but the Skwovet were at Lv1.

Sorry to hear that shy guy. Is there anything in particular you're looking for?

I managed to get shiny Rhyhorn from wild when I was hunting for Skorpis (spelling), I've put that on hold and bred my Dubwool with foreign Ditto and on 116th egg I managed to get shiny Wooloo :mrgreen:




I'm trying for shiny Ponyta-Galar now, over 160 eggs and no luck so far (although that's to be expected really)

Also if anyone wants 4IV Ponyta-Galar (or even 5IV) let me know before I surprise trade them, right now I'm releasing 3IV or lower when keeping 4IVs. 5IVs I won't surprise trade, so no rush if you need 5IV one.

I'm probably not far enough through the game yet to get them all, but I've got a few Sword exclusives so far (f definitely a Farfetch'd for example) - I'd be happy to trade them over for you.

EDIT: I've just looked up the list and I also have Scraggy and Swirlix.

I didn't expect it either! I was worried that my Pokémon would've knocked it out in one hit and I like Poke Ball's design better than Ultra so I went for it!

What the strawberry float at the Snorlax capture rates?
I've caught Legendaries with fewer Pokeballs than this

25, although if you're on about GMax Snorlax it might been lower

You only get one chance with Raid battles, so I would assume it's the normal one that likes to jump out at you as soon as you get over the bridge.

A weird thing happened yesterday where I had two critical captures in a row, then another two followed after just one regular attempt. I was absolutely surprised at that, and think it might have been a sign that a shiny is waiting at the nursery.

I use regular pokeballs for everything. Unless you catch pokemon in regular pokeballs, they basically don't count. No one wants a team made up with mismatched balls :dread:

The level difference between your battling mon and the wild mon seems to have a huge impact in this game on the capture chance, even at very slim level differences. I ended up always switching to my strongest mon after weakening the opponent before trying to catch.

Level 95 vs level 60 is probably pretty great odds
