    I'm honestly not sure if it's been mentioned here or if I even did so myself, but Pokémon Rumble Rush is out for IOS now, and I have been enjoying it. Doesn't seem any different than past Rumble games, and the monetization aspect is absolutely not required to play. I've yet to see any aspect of it that you need to spend money for to enjoy the game 'properly'.


    On the flip side, apparently Pokémon Duels is shutting down. I tried it recently actually and didn't care for it, but kind of shows the problems we'll run into with Pokémon game apps going forward. At any point they can just stop it and unlike handheld games these games will just be 'gone' except for those who had it and don't delete it.

    Anyone still playing Go?

    I fired mine up for a bit earlier & realised I should probably get some more friends on there!

    If anyone wants to add me, feel free.

    A better and more close up pic of that old advertisement in the stadium. It shows Impidimp, but now the "unknown Pokemon" to the left, seems to be possibly a person. Rosy cheeks, plump face, blonde hair curl and curly mustache. Possibly showcasing something along a drink/food/eatery advertisement.

    You know, I just thought I'd share this catch I got from yesterday's Pokemon Go Community day. A Zero-IV, 10 CP Ralts. I can't believe it.

    Nothing is changing Gamefreak's mindset or the game for November.

    If they ever do decide to bring back the national dex, it will definitely not be for this game.

    I could see it being back if they ever made a gen4 remake since the regional dex is far more limited. But that's about it.

    A third SwSh game with it in would polarize the fanbase and in a way ruin Sword and Shield. Gamefreak doesn't really want to make certain pokemon games obsolete. Its why I think they constantly shuffle functions and features around.

    And if the national dex surprisingly did come back for SwSh, well, it wouldn't really matter since you'd be playing through the game with the regional dex mons anyways, since Home doesn't release till next year.

    Ok, I kind of love how the game hinted at the fairy captain to the player, then throws a curveball and puts you through the Dragon Trial first.

    Poison/Fairy and Dark/Electric, new combos are good. The new Weezing is hilarious, interesting that the new Linoone evolves further, and Marnie looks cool. Not bad.

    Super glad to see regional forms returning!

    That new Zigzagoon is pretty cool (should be interesting to see what its new evo is like), and Weezing is just the right kind of ridiculous....I would kind have liked to see this design used for a further evolution though - Koffing > Weezing > Spiffing.

    Looks like we might actually be having a more dickish rival again, with the blonde guy too.

    Was never a fan of Zigzagoon. But it's 3rd evolution, I may consider.
