isnt leki british slang for electric? rather apt i thought
Whether that's the case or not, there's still one e too many. Honestly should knock that middle one out to make Regileki.
Beat the first gym last night, I love the whole completing missions on the way to meeting the gym leader and the whole stadium fights. I completely forgot about Pokemon disobedience depends on what level they are/badges you have. My Raboot is level 23 and after wiping out the first of Milo’s Pokemon he literally would not fight for me at all
I’ll have to go easy on the levelling in case it happens again.
So I beat the 33rd best person in the world and managed to climb to rank 800 in the world (by beating Tyranitar and Excadrill)
I use an unconventional team so I ask on a showdown orientated discord group what they thought of my team.
Like 3 different people said it was bad and said it didn't have answers to certain things(like Tyranitar and Excadrill ) or had no synergy, and then when I explained the answers and synergy it had they basically just said I got lucky and wouldn't do as well on showdown.
Then they kept saying stupid gooseberry fool like "If you set rain Chandelure is useless" while ignoring the fact that there would be no reason for me to do that.
They were basically trying to say only the Top 100 people that play on Cart are any good, when there are well over 200,000 who play on a regular basis. Which just seemed like they were trying to gate keep to me, since this stranger came along and questioned their understanding of the game.
Sorry I know no one will understand a word of this just wanted to rant
Direct tomorrow at 2pm BST, guessing the DLC might go live after it has finished?
Have they actually announced which Pokémon will be exclusive to which version? I’ll definitely be up for trading Shield DLC exclusives for the Sword ones (really don’t feel like buying the DLC twice ), hoping there will be an Isle of Armor section in the dex so getting a living dex for the DLC is a bit easier. Watch them say half of the legendary Pokémon are exclusive to one basically taunting me into buying both!
I’m 7 badges down on this now, going to wrap up the main story this week before I move onto the first DLC pack. Still loving this game, the towns look really cool, I loved the snowy one with the hot springs
Has anyone got round to starting the DLC then? Not got round to its myself, tempted to leave it a while before cracking on with it (still got 3 other games on the go currently with another already in the backlog) but would like to know how it is, decent length to it?

The level of polish doesn't even come close to first party Nintendo stuff. It's actually appalling.
No they don’t come close to the polish of other first party Nintendo games, they’re still very enjoyable games to play but you get the feeling they could be better considering the money the franchise prints on an almost constant basis.
