4 hours isn't weak for any handheld console ever. batteries can only take so much when playing games in small environments like the switch.

Also joke's on you my phone lasts a whopping 30 minutes of continuated use without being plugged. Now here's contender for worst battery ever.

Meanwhile, my iPod nowawdays lasts only seconds before dying. Can't even get past the logo.

It old. I need to get a new battery for it, but whatever.

Sandshrew is the mascot of Tottori Prefecture and it, its Alolan form, and their evolutions are getting shinies in Pokemon Go in addition to having a festival with merch and other things in their honor, and this feels like a concerted effort to make me try the app again

which might work since that's the only reasonable way to get a Shiny Kantonian Sandshrew and Sandslash short of buying Let's Go right now

fuck

it's home to the only large sand dune in Japan and is fairly tropical otherwise, has a famous mountain just tall enough to see snowfall in the autumn and winter, and nobody lives there, so it's a pretty good choice to rep Sandshrew. Or vice versa, I guess.

Oh cool, I was designing a Pokemans game that included the Tottori prefecture in the part of the map it was based on. Guess I'll put some Sandshrews there P:

Just making Sandshrews native doesn't seem like enough, you should make a dual-Gym where one side uses the Sandshrew line and the other side uses the Alolan Sandshrew line.

Space reserved for comedy. Inquire within.

Whatever else that festival has planned is severely missing out if they don't make Alolan Sandshrew shaped curling rocks a thing.

In Summary, Muk started out solidly better than it's rival Weezing for gens 1 and 2, then it became worse than Weezing for another 2 gen until both plummeted to PU. Unlike Weezing, Muk gain a shiny new Alolan Forme that made it usable in UU and OU again, and even Ubers. Sadly this didn't get to last the entire 7th gen, as USUM introduced Necrozma-Dusk Mane to destroy every advantage Alolan Muk had.

i want that guy to do ferrothorn and heatranm

those two have been around for three to four generations respectively and only seems to get more and more relevant as time passes.

False Swipe Gaming will get around to them eventually, even sooner depending on Patreon selections. He's taking his time to go over the earlier gens first because they've been there the longest.

I've been playing the crap out of Let's Go Pikachu. The catching system is a bit finnicky at times, so I usually have to switch to handheld mode but otherwise I love it. It's what I always imagined a console pokemon game would be back in Gen 1. <3

Pokemon has always been easy. If you want it to be hard find a different series or exclusively use Caterpie and release it and catch a new one every time it grows over level 5.

Dec 9th 2018 at 1:29:09 PM

[up]x4 Glad to hear you're enjoying the game. I'm enjoying it as well, though I've been playing kind of slow; just reached Lavender Town.

I really should try to unlock the GO park as soon as possible; I have a couple Pokemon I need to transfer from Go to Let's Go to free up some space.

There's a difference between easy and so easy a five year okd could beat it.

Perhaps, but from my experience this game is no more difficult than any other pokemon game. Moreso in some ways, setting aside the atrocious catch system.

I guess we'll have to agree to disagree.

I noticed the same. The game actually has less handholding than Sun and Moon did.

@Back Set 1: To be fair, I actually would say that Pokemon is so easy a 5-year old could beat it. I've seen an illiterate preschooler get halfway through Pokemon Emerald.

Though to be fair, I have little idea how many tries it required them. Pokemon is the sort of game where randomly selecting attacks is a fairly viable (if very sub-optimal) strategy.

Pokemon is for five year olds. It's always been for five year olds.

I first played it when I was five.
