Yeah, I played TemTem when it first arrived, but little of it since. I liked what I played of it. It is coming to the Switch, but no idea when, so it should be interesting to see how many Switch owners do go for it.

I’ll definitely be trying TemTem out when it comes out on the Switch, just to see what it’s like mostly.

Got my Kubfu in Shield this morning, any of the two styles vastly better for Urshifu? I was leaning towards Rapid strike over the one hit one. Got myself a Shinx finally as well now it was raining in the right locations, now I’m just cooking curry to raise Kubfu’s happiness, hopefully won’t need too much curry mind!

Did everyone transfer their Pokemon to Home? I'm about to pick up a Switch and Pokemon Sword, but torn over what to do with my old Pokemon. Got stuff going back to GBA, so well over 15 years at this point. I didn't put them in Pokemon Bank as I was worried about the subscription lapsing and them getting deleted. I know at some point the support for Pokemon Bank to Pokemon Home transfers is going to end though, and I'm sure when that happens, my Pokemon collection will be stranded on old hardware.

I usually like transferring everything to a new game, so I know which stuff I need to catch, and what I already have.

I transferred everything over, only from the 3DS games and the 3DS Virtual Consoles releases though. I know you can but I can’t recall off the top of my head how you’d get something from one of the GBA games to the current games, DS ones are easy enough and just a matter of time by transferring them to one of Heart Gold/Soul Silver to Black/White 2 then into the transporter so you can put them in bank, can’t remember if you need to deposit them in one of the 3DS games first though? I feel quite fortunate in that I’ve only recently become bothered about completing the dex in Let’s Go Pikachu and now Shield, obviously all the stuff I transferred over from Bank has helped my completion a little in Home but I’m happy to just plug away at it over the next few games where hopefully the rest of the National dex is put into various games so hopefully one day I can have a near complete living dex in Home, although still not a dream goal or anything but I suppose it’d be nice.

Edit, think I’m nearly done with the story content for the Isle of Armor, just need to get to work on the dex at some point in the near future.

I've already got everything on a copy of Ultra Moon, so thankfully it will just be a case of UM to Bank, Bank to Home, and then Home to Sword for those that can be.

Thought you meant you still had stuff on your GBA games, very easy to transfer from Bank to Home, I’ve not actually put anything from Home into Sword but it’s there as an option if I can use it to fill out the Isle of Armor dex, as long as I’ve got that done before the second dlc comes out then I’ve just got that smaller dex to focus on.

Anyone with Sword be available to do a couple of trades at a time that suits for us both? Just need the version exclusives for Isle of Armor and maybe a Bulbasaur if anyone has a spare one? I can catch extras of the Shield exclusives if you need them so I’d be needing a Pinsir and Clauncher if anyone can help and can breed a Squirtle if needed as well.

Edit, got the Bulbasaur from Home, so now just in need of a Clauncher and Pinsir if anyone can help in the near future :)

Just starting the painstakingly boring task of ordering the Isle of Armor Pokédex before transferring them to Pokémon Home. Anyone know if Zarude has a launch date for the UK yet? Can’t see anything.

Edit, ok that didn’t take anywhere near as long as I feared, just need to transfer them to Home and then I’m all done with it for the time being so roll on the Frozen Tundra DLC! Kind of tempted to breed/catch a new team for when it comes out just to make it a bit different but that can wait till nearer the time.

Bit of a shame, hopefully won’t be too long before we get a date, hope we get the same as Japan whereby we get a shiny Celebi alongside a Zarude.

Hopefully you’ll be able to catch multiples of the legendaries though, so you can trade as I’m sure it said some are version exclusives (and it wouldn’t be Pokémon if some weren't :lol:).

Looks good though, think I’ll enjoy it more than Isle of Armor.

Wish it was a bit sooner but I held off playing the last DLC and the Pokemon S/S end game until this so will start up the stuff I never played soon so it leads into this

Long Live Switch Squad!

Does anyone know when the Ash cap Pikachu codes expire? Can we redeem them all or just one?

No idea how long the codes are active for, but I had no issue downloading all 3 to my game.

Thanks, I’ll just wait till they’re all out and download them all at once then, can these ones be transferred to Home? Recall in the past some of the special Pikachu were locked into the games and couldn’t be put into Bank for some reason.

Still not had anything about Zarude release yet, wonder if we’ll get something when the second DLC drops?
