Literally no idea what I'm doing with it lol.

I thought I could dump all my pokemon from my Pokemon Go save (which I don't play anymore) onto home and then onto sword.
Apparently I can't.

So, I've paid £2.69 for a Squirtle.

strawberry floating lol. But this is my own fault for not really understanding what Home is. YOLO LMAO

Trying to trade a Zacian in home. Every wants a mythic Mon. Thing I'd you can use GTS to trade strawberry floating mythic Mon. Twats. People are after meltan for Zacian. Great I have a buttload can I trade it, nope cause it's mythic. I thought I'd put up thunderarse for a Zacian but that ain't working either. Meh.

Seema like a massive design flaw to allow people to list mythical pokemon.

Light balls seem to be a dam sight rarer than the 5% seems to imply, over 40 caught and not one (past 15 using a Joltik with compound eyes as well).

Edit, 10 more later and I finally have one, just need to track down an Eevee now before I can move on.

My bug dude turned into a big brain flying mofo. My fire Millipede dude evolved too.

Caught a Toxel, electric poison type? Weird.

Basically loving this at the moment. Only beat the 3rd gym, so I'm not that far yet. I'm about level 30 on average.

I've said it before, but my favourite thing is the Pokémon themselves. It's a joy stumbling across new ones, and ones that you had forgotten about entirely because there's nearly a bloody thousand of them to remember.

Not being able to access bank on the basic home plan is really dumb though. Might just get a month. Do I need to have finished the game to transfer mons that I haven't seen yet?

Finished getting my team together for my run of Sword. Now onto the 4th gym, purposefully not grinding any levels out to try and inject a bit more challenge into it.

I have 10 Male Sandlit (or whatever it be called) in the Wonder Box, cause I keep getting gooseberry fool like Magikarp. That can have a shitty pokemon back, those random arseholes.

Is the Wonder Box like a turbo-button surprise trade?

It doesn't work as fast. You can trade 3 Pokémon at a time but it only does it every 6 hours or so.

Can you evolve Meltan in Sword and Shield? Or just by the standard method in Go? Went on a binge earlier to grab plenty of Meltan but don’t know if I should trade the major for extra candy or not.
