    Frankly they should block Mythicals and Legendaries from being traded on GTS unless its for other Mythicals and Legendaries.

    I'd happily trade up for one, though. I have a Latias sitting around that I'd happily part with, lol. I don't even care about stats, she just wants a horse with pretty blue flames. Hey, I try to keep the wife happy, but I'm getting bored trying to breed one, and I'm only at about ~500 eggs so far...

    I've got FOUR Rayquazas sitting in my PC box and I would happily trade away two of them. Thing is, I have no idea what I would trade them for since my Dex is 100% complete.

    i forgot how tough nanu was in the UB missions......

    also something hit me......looker was found on the shores of the battle frontier in hoenn.....anabel was found on the shore of alola FROM hoenn....what if it all comes together soon? maybe in the rumored diamond/pearl remakes?

    also the realization that guzma, lillie and lusamine are fallers as well....but that shouldn't be too much (aside of UB sighting possibilities.....)

    thats surprising!

    That was the point of seeing Looker being found in OR/AS, yeah. It's not really gonna be resolved, it was a hint at Sun and Moon's plot. That's all.

    Man I love using the Hot spring in the poke pelageo to hatch eggs. makes it so easy. pop a batch of eggs in and add some beans to the basket then save and shut down and check it the next day to get your lil baby mons.

    I really hope they keep something like it going forward in future pokemon games.

    I've been using the training island in the Poke Pelageo. Takes a lot longer than Super Training in XY/ORAS did, but it is really nice to be able to just leave a Pokemon and have them do their EV training on their own with or without playing the game.

    First successful Global Mission, and it's still going on, we're definitely going to be getting the complete 4000 FC this time.

    I am sooooooo close to a complete dex, I'm starting to getting frustrated with how hard it is to trigger SOS battles for Riolu, why the hell did they program him to have the move Final Guard?

    You can catch Lucario through SOS, Riolu is 10% encounter, I'm always running into other Pokémon and when I finally find a Riolu I get hit with Final Guard and the Riolu knocks itself out... Really damn frustrating.

    Just caught a Shiny Petilil while hunting Zygarde Cells. I'm down to one last cell to find and I have no idea where else to search. I believe I have everything from Aether Paradise, Mele'Mele, Poni, and possibly Akala, but I can't be 100% sure on that without anything. For the damn Stars version they better incorporate a 'you've found all the cells and cores on Island Such and Such' or so help me I'll write a strongly protesting letter.

    Apparently Compound Eyes ups encounter rates for rare Pokémon, Riolu you will summon Lucario in SOS battles now that I've got Butterfree to work with.

    Found it!!!! Turns out I missed the one at Haukoluni Observatory during the night. Must have arrived there originally during the day, considering I'm in Moon and all that. At least that quest is over, now to make a full Zygarde.

    you know what they should have done for global missions? checkpoints....like for the catch 1m pokemon, have checkpoints at 1k, then 10k, then 50k and onwards, with more FPs giving after each checkpoint was reached.....

    Dude, just catch the Riolu and evolve it into a Lucario. With Poke Pelago friendship evolutions have never been easier. Why make it harder for yourself?

    Because that's far too easy. They went to the trouble of making it possible to catch it in the wild, and I'm stubborn enough to keep trying. Also I don't really use Poke Pelago for EV stuff or the hot springs. I've mostly stuck to the berry farming, bean collecting and item searching.

    The only SOS Pokémon I haven't caught myself are the damn ice-cream cones, well that, Gengar, Poliwrath and Politoed, but that's mostly because I wasn't in those areas as often, might still try and catch them just to say I have.

    Now that I know Compound Eyes ups the rate of rarer Pokémon I've got Butterfree back in my party and am level-grinding for the last few evolutions I need. In fact the last thing I need to do is take Exeggutor on a Razor Claw hunt with wild Jangmo-o and thief/frisking fun. It's the only way to get a damn Weavile in this game since you can't just buy the item with BP anywhere or anything convenient like that.

    So I got just Purrloin in the QR Scanner, and the lil' thing is standing upright like a Meowth. Huh.


    Anyway, finally had a successful Weather S.O.S battle; caught a Castform at last! Now all I need is Gabite, Goomy and Vanillite!
