    I approve of Crobat, one of my favorite lines when I can be fussed to evolve one, but I'm curious you included Lunala!Necrozma. I haven't kept a legendary around other than for looks since Gen IV.

    And that reminds me that I'm still upset that they failed to add a real hall of fame between games. That was one of my only real hopes for USUM and if they don't improve that going forward on the Switch, I am never getting over my salt.

    Litten was my Sun choice and boy was I disappointed in the final form. Picked Rowlett for Moon but I never got around to finishing it. So naturally I had to round out the Alolan trio with Poplio this time and lemme tell you, that fairy typing is quite helpful when I'm not grimacing at poison types landing the first blow. Its more annoying to run into other fairy's since I don't have a hard counter, Chesnaught can learn one of the poison tm's I found but it lacks the special to make it viable, and none of my team can learn steel moves so eh.

    I've been sleeping on Crabominable for a while now. He had some use against Kahili but by and large Primarina's ice beam settled any flying types.

    I think the ultra wormholes are decent after you change your settings to circle pad at the gamefreak building. The motion controls are dogshit though.


    By the way, I've been breeding some hidden ability Dratini's with extreme speed, so if anyone wants one, holler at me!

    I generally will use whatever game's signature Legendary whenever I'm doing a casual, catch 'em all run. Mostly because I can't in Nuzlocke. For this one, obviously that was Necrozma. I used Solgaleo in my Sun game, will use Zekrom and Reshiram!Kyurem in White and its sequel. So on and so forth.

    Vikavolt can learn Flash Cannon via TM and has plenty of Sp. Atk to make it hit hard.

    Giovanni with some kind of Ultra Beast power at the end and his saying that he'd 'step aside for now' when you beat him, it really felt like they were setting up for Red/Blue/Yellow 3.0.

    Would make sense to go back with the switch away from the DS.

    Merry Christmas!

    Continuing (again) a Christmas tradition of giving gifts to children, I hada box full of Mudkips to wondertrade away. All bred from a wondertrade I got a while back.

    Mostly trash, but I've received:
    - Guzzlord
    - breedject Charmander, Froakie, Beldum, Rotom, & AVulpix...

    Giving is good.

    Getting is better.
