    So how many of the new Pokemon for the Ultra games are actually out in the wild to catch & not locked away in more asinine "SOS Battles" ???

    I certainly hope Amazon ships the item so it arrives by Friday, though I'm not holding my breath for that. I think it took a few days before I got Metroid Samus Returns when it was released.

    When I got Sun and Moon I got my copy that Friday. Let's hope we all have ours Friday as well. I'm not opposed to Thursday either .

    Amazon's been acting oddly the past few months of orders, they wait three days to ship anything and then it comes from this new delivery service/company in my hometown, which means it comes pretty quick, within a few days of shipping, however there's still a six day delivery time at least, despite this new company being in the same city as me. I'm not a fan of it, also they never ring the bell or knock on the door, just shove the package in the door and leave. It's a real pain. (Especially as most days I'm home.)

    I guess I'll just have to wait and see what happens the next few days. Hopefully they ship it expedited post through CP instead of this new company.

    A lot of the "rare" Pokémon in SOS Battles are now just different evolution stages of the Pokémon available in the route. The encounter rates for a lot of the new Gen 7 'mons have been fixed as well, it's definitely easier to get stuff like Grubbin/Komala/Mareanie/etc.

    Just came close to shiny failing on a Cubchoo in a horde. I was watching some video on Ultra Sun/Moon when I heard the chime. After pulling up some video and images I found the right one but wasn't too sure until I checked my box. FYI I run 3 systems at once and use sweet sent to shiny hunt, that is how I get so many of mine. If I get multiple shinnies it is usually on one system while I get none on the other two, sometimes it is on 2, rarely 3.

    Amazon is showing that my steelbook Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon is shipping to day and I should have it Friday. Hope everyone gets their copies of the game.

    My status update was just an e-mail saying it'll be delivered the 23rd to the 29th... Amazon.ca is BS at times with their estimates, why would it take a whole week to get to me if they ship it tonight or tomorrow with expedited, but nope, chances are it'll be shipped by that same shitty new outfit just because it's a local business. I truly hope it is sooner than next bloody Thursday.

    I plan on getting it at Wal-Mart if I go at midnight for it. Sorta depends on how tired I'll feel after work since I don't get off till 10... Otherwise I'll just get it later.

    Edit: Well Wal-Mart failed me. They didn't get their shipment in.

    Steel book has shipped (alongside some phone accessories for my wife’s new phone) and is expected tomorrow. Pretty excited, S/M lost me pretty quick so hopefully the new extras make this game a bit more long lasting for me.

    PISSED... I was a GS last night to get mine, and they didn't do the midnight release. Even thought they verified over phone they were part of it, and are on the list that Nintendo.com has as participating. Would have bought at Wal-Mart across the street, but I pre-paid when pre-ordering them... Very irritating and unprofessional.

    God that is an overly long tutorial...


    I walked over to WM at 3am and got mine (ultra sun) with free keychain. I do like that now you can catch a new pokemon with a full party and swap out on the fly.
