    I've tried six straight times to catch an Eiscue in a raid but the AI sidekicks are so fucking useless I can't get its health down enough to try & capture. I'm using my strongest 'mon and it can barely make a dent. the difficulty curve for the five-stars is just a ridiculous skyrocket.

    No kidding, they really are pushing for you to get other players to help in those fights rather than NPCs

    We could share friend codes and then setup the Max Raid battles so only people with a code can join. It would take some setup here to announce when you want some help but it would be better than relying on NPCs.

    Been a while! We ended up not picking up Sword and Shield, just wasn't grabbing us. But we just started playing Ultra Moon again, looking to beat the post game!

    Alright, I'm starting up some breeding this week and dropping by to see if anyone needs and stonjourners, Dreepy, Feebas, Duraludon, farfetched, darumaka or any other sword exclusives I might have (mawile, passimian, turtonator, and jangmo-o have eluded me so far)

    If you do, let me know in a quote, PM or something. I'll get an extra for whoever.

    I've bought 300 ultraballs, dusk balls, net balls and quick balls and just went on a rampage capturing Pokémon left and right. I got 3 Gengar, 3 Gallade, 11 Duskull, 3 Dusknoir, 7 Ninjask, 7 Shedinja and a box full of wooloo.

    Someone stop me. I just got another Galar Weezing.

    I just fought a 5 star Shuckle in a raid. Turns out it had it's hidden ability (Contrary; reverses stat changes). That meant it ended up getting stronger as the shields were destroyed.

    Dang. I hate those shields. As if causing sufficient damage wasn't difficult enough.

    Ok so after capturing a Umbreon at the Lake of Outrage under Sandstorm weather, I'm almost done capturing the eeveelution.

    I'm just missing Espeon and I have a level 1 Eevee I bred. How does the friendship system work in SW/SH?

    From what I've seen, it combines the "friendship" and "affection" stats into a "happiness" stat. Basically all the things that went towards either of those go towards the new one (battling, leveling up, vitamins, playing with the Pokémon in the camp, etc.).
