Wow you are getting lucky with the Shinies! I've mostly just been hunting G-Max, as I write this I'm fighting G-Max Copperajah, leaving only Garborder and Gengar once I catch this dumb looking G-Max.

I'm guessing you found it by joining someone's Raid? Cause joining G-Max apparently the catch rate is abysmal, which is why you tend to see a lot of Shiny G-Max caught in Master Balls.

:yesyes: yes, I always joins others
I can catch anything that's not a G-Max... those are really difficult (I think I have read somewhere that if you join the catch rate is like a legendary....)

I got something new XD

Same here! (But this time I don't want a shiny of it XDD -> only because I'm scared it will escape XDD)

I am still thinking that the story should have a voices such as the other games
I'll write here because Let's Go don't need the dub that much but SwSh... you start the game and see a mute Rose that... "talk" :suspect::suspect:... you continue the game and see Piers that, hem... "sing"?? :uhmm::uhmm:But you don't hear anything... that's simply sad. :noone: :alone::noone: :alone:

We all want the event of Toxtricity so quickly for sure. And Answeing here or in let'a go thread, it is the same and i am glad that we share the same feeling of why 0okemon still not put voices, all the game doing this so what's the keaning of making them not talk. I always think that they should put the voices from sun and moon season or from xy also not only from let's go or shield and sworf

Now that I think about it, they gave an explanation as why the game don't have voices
“There’s sort of two main reasons, so firstly this is a RPG with a whole lot of text that we’re then localising and releasing in nine different languages at the same time. So from a purely practical point of view actually getting that organised and carrying out all the voice recording, the corrections and so on in nine different languages for release on exactly the same day is something that would be incredibly difficult. So, that’s one reason why we haven’t chosen to do it this time around.

But the other reason is one of character image, in the sense of when you play a game, if you’ve got a voice on that character that instantly provides to the player an image, a feel for that character that they don’t generate themselves, it’s pushed on them from the development side. Whereas if we have really flavourful text, for those characters, but no voice the players can kind of create their own image of who that character is as they’re playing. And that’s something we really like to encourage as we’re creating games.”

“There’s similar linguistic problems – there are some where all of them are the same, such as Pikachu, where that would be fine, but other ones have completely different names across all languages. And another point to consider is that in the game we’re focusing on them as being living creatures, so having them making a sound like a living creature – rather than just shouting out their own name – is quite nice.”

But that's still stupid... in Pokémon Masters you can choose the English or Japanese voice... so why not doing the same here? :facepalm:

this is a RPG with a whole lot of text
Persona 5, Shin Megami Tensei IV (and Final) have a lot of text (a lot more than Pokémon) and they have voice for English and Japanse... so why Pokémon can't have the same? Ah right, small indie... please understand.

So G-Max Toxicitry is out and they split his forms between Sword and Shield, and they boosted 2 other G-Maxes per version.
Sword:
  • Amped Toxicitry
  • Kingler
  • Grimmsnarl
Shield:
  • Low Key Toxicitry
  • Orbettle
  • Hatterene

My name is Gloria and I am in number 22 cause I love number 2, 22, 222, and so on. But the best are 2, 22, the the number of 2n then finally the Even numbers.

One of the best screenshots. I do thought about the screenshots but because it is not my own nitendo switch so I didnot do. But when i will buy my own then I will do a screenshots.

You picture is one of the best.

Cool thing is, the female protagonist's canon name is actually Gloria!

Lucky! I'm not even close to completing the nat dex.
I completed the livingdex in USUM and some weeks ago in SwSh but I waited until they solved the Magearna bug before getting it :yeahyeah:
