    Pretty much at the start of my journey, after the first 3 main gyms, I was lucky enough to get a haunter. I loved it because I was constantly getting taunted by ghastlys that were 1 level higher than what I could catch

    Never played a pokemon game before. And when I saw “very strong pokemon” stoneboy I had to attack. Ended up 1-shoting him with the waterboy pokemon. Very hard game.

    About your recommended team:
    Grubbin on Route 1 is a better catch than Yamper in my opinion as the thunder stone in North Lake Miloch means you can fully evolve it before the first gym.
    It’s worth waiting for Shellos in Galar Mine 2, as Water/Ground is better typing for key fights like Chairman Rose than Drednaw’s Water/Rock.

    2:37 that’s plain annoying. The amount of times I’ve been doing online raids and put my controller down, accidentally selecting the first mon in my party (invariably with a terrible type matchup, like a Raichu against a Nidoqueen...) because the carpet knocked L2. I wish you could disable that.

    The only thing that bugs me is why have a game on a console that has touch support but lacking touch support while maintaining motion controls not every switch owner has a the standard most younger ones have the Lites, add touch and allow us to move/pet/commands pokemon/items/options either docked with motion and undocked with touch, speed and ease, add a couple extra option to enable/disable,

    I find it so lame that the legendaries and starters are S-locked. not in my day. I dont understand why they'd take the fun out of the game like that. some people rally love soft resetting.

    No! It’s not gym badges! That you can’t catch em’ if a strong Pokémon is lurking around the wild area he’s unable to be caught by any ball. Such as friend ball! The conditions are part of the game exclusives are these rules: run, defeat, catch Pokémon, means it won’t spawn during the date/time on the open post-game of Pokémon sword and shield is changing the weather, like night time requires dusk balls, under 7, under 10 at night use timer balls requires a timer of minutes for the Pokémon to get caught safely, in battles Pokémon have abilities like shadow tag & arena trap or it says “you couldn’t get away” then the mysterious Pokémon starts of with a effective move or super effective move

    With teams I don’t care how good the pokémon are, if I like them, they stay. If I don’t, they leave. So that was how I ended with a level 100 Shuckle with over 300 defence.
    (Btw that was only part of my team on an alt. account my actual team was Rillaboom, Vespiquen, Noctowl, Ludicolo, Glavantula, and Appletun.)

    I played the 3 times and am going to play it again for the 4th time with Ninjask and Shedninja on my team, and I think it never gets old because you can play the game with any Pokémon in the games on your team, endless replay value.
