    Larry is the most based character in all of pokemon. All he wants is to finish his shift so he can grab a good meal, head home, and relax. He is the true protagonist.

      @Bay Pat It's more like "almost NOBODY" could clear all the 8 gyms and get the badges, therefor all the elite four people were having different occupations on the side.
      Larry being a gym leader on the side, is more like him probably owing the chef some things, forcing him to act as the gym leader in the meantime until whatever he owed her, was payed back. That's my theory of why he is a gym leader "on the side" atleast.

    The writing was insane. There have been Pokémon games where the characters feel like cardboard cutouts, and you are treated like some crazy “chosen one”-where at this game has incredible characters, a heartfelt and meaningful story that is just super badass, and overall it just made me FEEL stuff. Like wow. If only they had waited a year to release it so they had time to iron out the bugs…

      There are still several major plot holes but i agree, the ending is really good, 10/10

      @Daniel I mean, if you really wanted to you could set it up that way. I'd be shocked if there wasn't a tool online to pick things which lets you set up the probabilities. Worst case just go on a random number picker, set it to 1-100, and assign specific ranges of numbers to specific mons based on probabilities.

    Man I thought the same thing! First free gyms were amazing and then it fell off super quick. Something like Gengar with Tera Normal for Larry would have been sick, Or at the very least make Facade an actual train with a Guts mon and a burn orb, so people have to figure out a way around it. If it was just a shit encounter it would have been fine, but the potential was there, it's so sad.
    Anyway, probably the best mainline entry in like 10 years. (HGSS is 12 years ago so probably 12.)

    Hey, looking to do a Nuzlocke run of my own, specifically with the random encounter wheel like done here. However, I find the online and even in-game resources about what encounters are in what route to be inconsistent. I looked in South 3 for nearly 2 hours before realizing Shroomish do not spawn there, despite both online sources and even the pokedex saying otherwise. What resource was used to determine the encounters on any given route? Thanks for anyone willing to help!

    Quaxly Squad FTW!!!! At least that you chose it for the first run.
    Also, that idea with spinning a wheel to determine a Nuzlocke encounter is BRILLIANT!
    One of the only things that I dislike about ScarVio is the fact that they removed Set Mode, forcing everyone to play on Shift mode.
    Ever since my 3rd Nuzlocke, where I tried playing on Set for the first time, I've been playing on Set ever since, it's so enjoyable. Still have no idea why they'd remove the option to play on Set.
    Thankfully the battles go pretty fast, and the wild battles even faster, so grinding goes pretty quick.
    I wasn't Nuzlocking my first run or second (doing 2 at the same time, one co-op with my bro and one solo which I've already finished), but I did play it blind and I am planning to do 3 Nuzlockes, one with each starter, and then draw all the new Pokémon I catch, for my "ArtDex", as a replacement for the National Dex not being in the game since gen 6 anymore.
    The battle I struggled the most with, and perhaps the ONLY battle I struggled with, was against Eri, the Fighting Star Boss, purely because her Starmobile has Stamina and kept using Shift Gear and just sweeping my team, forcing me to use revives in order to not lose the battles, otherwise I had never used any items in battles before nor after. I did end up beating her on my first try because of luck, her missing an attack and me landing one to take out the sliver of HP the Starmobile had left.
    Still it was an enjoyable game with a really good story, plus I caught so many shinies, I ended up finding 4 shinies in a single day, the day after I found my first shiny, and so I ended up having 2 shinies on my team throughout my solo file: a Mabosstiff and a Scovillain.

    Also I think this part deserves a comment on it's own. I only used the mints and the bottle caps because of the 6 star raids so I can shinty hunt later (even though a friend's been doing that instead. He likes the hunt more than the shinies themselves so he's been giving them to me and even been asking if I have anything requested)
    Considering your hardcore nuzlockes doesn't allow for IVs, which is what the bottle caps gets you, wouldn't taking advantage of the bottle caps at least, be cheating? So despite the fact he acknowledges this when he was talking about Skelidrige, he still decided to use them for a *hardcore* nuzlocke. Felt like a normal one with no deaths than an actual hardcore one

      They do some clever things with designing the teams for the gym leaders, but so much of that potential just goes to waste.
      Imagine the same team comp, but their AI is allowed to use their ace tactically, can choose not to use the gimmick power if it wouldn't actually help, and they get a full moveset, and potions just like every other gen, and at least some of the Elite 4 and champion have held items on some of their Pokemon sometimes.
      I'm not asking for ROMhack difficulty where every gym leader has a full team all with held items, and is designed to actually be hard. Just the basic level of what we've always had, is it too much to ask not to lose so much with every new version?

      @Sponsie1000 there is no percentage of encounters in these games, instead pokemon have fixed SPAWN location, it's impossible to factor an 90% rate of pokemon cause i can simply visit the spawn of a pokemon and he will ALWAYS be there, also the numbers aren't exact cause they can appear either alone or in multiples of 5/4 with an evo in The middle. There are too many variables to determine "spawn rate"

    So I'm pretty sure the AI in the last fight is at least a little different because it has a chance to read switch ins. I had it read a switch in from garganacl to talonflame a couple times which fucked me over pretty bad. Paradox magneton doesn't deserve rights.

    When you terrastalize you become a pure type.
    You gain stab and increased power for moves of your tera type and stab is doubled if it is one of your original types.

    Ngl you really need to see the game through to the very end in order to get the whole experience. That lechonk at the start however is a static encounter, the tutorial mandates you encounter him so you should be good for a second encounter there, and btw, you should just get that spinning wheel picker app up and randomize the encounter for each area using it, just have the names of possible pokemon you encounter for that area of the map and boom, it's fair and easy.
    Btw, you couldn't you make a back up save via the cloud to reset from before the starters.
    Also, what's your opinions on all the new pokemon, cyclizar with it's regenerator shed tail strategy feels like it would be busted for a nuzlocke.

    My man has actually listened to Alpharad's friendly critiques and managed to improve his writing and presentation skills while staying true to his wry style and not devolving into theaterkid warm up improv. Character arcs in the games and in real life lfg. Seriously, this is markedly improved, keep 'em coming.

    I don't know if he phrased Sudowoodo wrong, but it's a pure rock type. It's name literally means psuedo wood and it evolves from Bonsly when it knows Mimic
    It's well thought out imo because I find it funny that it terasteralizes into a grass type since Brassius is a grass-type Gym Leader. It also evolved into a pure grass-type, not a rock/grass. Maybe it was weird wording since he's the Nuzlocke champion but it just...ate me...
    Also thought that Mimikyu got nerfed after gen 7 though. I don't know why considering Tsareena didn't get nerfed until gen 9, but maybe it's because of how overpowered it really is.
