Actual Pokemon Switch - DYNAMAXING

Post by Wayoshi (?) » Wed Jun 05, 2019 10:13 am



There's also a very detailed 4chan leak going around that posted a lot of what was shown in this Direct, correctly, in late May. With a bunch of new details.

I'm excited this more for a fanart/screenshot/anime perspective more than a gameplay one. I was never too keen on Z Moves, and this appears to be a 3 turn Z Move maybe with some other buffs. :fluttershrug:

I can take or leave giant pokemon (though raid battles sound pretty sweet), but what I'm most excited for are camera control, wide open fields rather than narrow routes, and the Let's Go style wandering pokemon. Now we just need to see some story details.

I really really hope they sell a cheap bundle with the game comes out since a switch isn't exactly in my price range at the moment. Any word on that yet?

A bundle of some sort strikes me as a safe bet, but I have no idea how much it'll cost. Its release date puts it just two weeks before Black Friday so I expect there'll be some sort of a deal. Keep an eye on Nintendo during E3 to see if they announce that rumored Switch Lite.

News from the Treehouse stream - there's some new Pokémon that they've shown off, as well as the PSS replacement, but the bigger news is that only Pokémon in the Galar dex can be transferred to Sword and Shield via Home. :facehoof:

That treasured Lugia you got from XD and have transferred it through every game since? You'd best hope that's in the Galar dex!

I strongly assume the transfer limit is either a National Dex unlock style thing or just temporary. I'd wait for clarification from Nintendo on that one.

And even if you can't bring them into Sword/Shield, couldn't you still keep them in storage? That would mean your Pokemon would be held hostage even more so than they currently are in Pokemon Bank, but at least they'd still be there.

It was translated twice during the Treehouse stream, and was apparently very similarly worded in Japanese.

Yes, they would be safe in Home - but also the transfer into Home from Bank/LGP/LGE/Go is one way only, so they'd be unusable in anything other than Home.

I genuinely hope it is something they patch rather than being a selling point for the third version/second pair/Sinnoh remakes. Otherwise, multiplayer between Sw/Sh and what comes next is going to be very awkward from the restrictions.

Here is the clarification:

(from https://www.usgamer.net/articles/pokemo ... -interview)

The thing is, at least from what's been shown so far, I can't recall any animations on returning Pokémon that weren't in the 3DS games? (Granted, I play with battle animations off so I don't know that for sure)

Huh, thanks for posting that. I suppose that makes sense. We really have a giant amount of mons now. For those who care about competitive, that stuff has gotten more and more impenetrable with each generation.

Not saying this is a fun proposition, because I'm absolutely certain some of my faves will not carry over either, but I can see the logic at least.

hopefully the Galar dex is at least 500 pokes, maybe 600, and it's obscure Pokemon like Dunsparce who get cut. that would limit the damage.

still a bleh move, especially if cut Pokemon return as paid DLC sometime.

I can't see them doing paid DLC - they'd need to update the game anyway in that case for compatibility reasons (and also, anyone needing to take advantage of it would already be paying a subscription for Home). If they're going to make you pay a second time, it'll be for the next game - even though Game Freak's historical arguments against patching no longer apply on the Switch*.

Famitsu is out, and that says there's no plans to patch things in - however, that article was written before the backlash to the decision, so could change. It does say they'll have "an active role in Pokémon Home" - which makes me wonder if Home is more similar to Ranch or Poké Pelago rather than Bank.
It also confirms that Megas and Z-Moves are out, so I'd strongly suspect that some Pokémon that had a Mega will be out as well (looking at Kangaskhan, Pinsir, and Mawile, for starters - the returning Pokémon we've seen so far are heavily biased towards those with evolution lines)

* I believe for local multiplayer, Switch games can send out updates to nearby Switches that aren't on the latest version.

In case you missed it: certain Pokémon can Gigantamax rather than Dynamax - which is basically a mega evolution + one of the special species unique Z moves (for example, Gigantamax Corviknight gets "G-Max Wind Rage" - which is apparently Defog + a flying attack, Drednaw gets one that does Stealth Rock + a rock attack).

Oddly, apparently only certain Pokémon within a species can Gigantamax, which is probably going to annoy everyone that would use it if it can't be bred for. Also, the champion's Charizard probably can do it because Mega Charizard X and Y just weren't enough!

Also, this is a minor thing but the new rival is directly reusing animations from Hau
