    That's pretty much your best bet, especially with Graveler.

    Only other option would to go grab a Aron, electric will do neutral damage to it and it does learn Mud Slap.

    Well the difference isn't that much. $320 against $370 isn't the make or break threshold I'd have chosen. Maybe if it was $250 it would represent a competitive option.

    EDIT: got the prices wrong 'cos I'm a dope.

    Australia. Where I live.

    And even then fuck me I got it wrong. Been seeing EOFY prices all week.

    Price for a Switch in Aus: $470
    Price for a Switch Lite in Aus: $329

    So that's actually a pretty competitive price point, I recant my previous statement.

    New trailer, just something that showcases everything to date quickly.

    However we have confirmation that Lapras, Mawile, Glalie Family, Ferrothorn Line and Toxapex Line are in the game.

    I know, right? So many confirmed Pokemon I thought would hold off are returning this time around. I have an inkling that about 500 or more will be in now. Still being cautious though.

    Out of curiosity. Is anyone still playing Pokemon Go? I'm in need of another friend for the final research page. BTW, I'm MarvelOen for those I already friended.

    I think the main takeaway is that at 143 employees between 2 games, they're understaffed. C'mon Game Freak, use some of those Pokémon riches to bolster your animator and programmer numbers and create some much needed jobs in a small industry!

    Honestly. A multibillion-dollar, 20+ year old franchise, and they won’t pony up for additional help.

    That’s Scrooge McDuck levels of cheap.

    I heard about this a few days ago. I guess that's why it was in production for over 4 years.

    I'm kind of on board with this bit. If they REALLY want to expand outwards, they need to hire more people. there is no reason to struggle that much with the intention of releasing pokemon games yearly AND more, you know? Then again, they could be using a lot of that money for outsourcing, since that's a common thing GF does as well...
