Questions of the Moment:

How do you feel about the game now that is has been out for awhile?
If you haven't bought it, do you want to? Why or why not?

Bought myself a Switch with a copy of Breath of the Wild a few days ago, can't wait for Pokémon in November woooo

So far I like Yamper a lot, such a cute little dog pokemon

Which version you planning on getting @roseychu Shield for me
I think Zacian looks weird with that sword in it's mouth lol

I like the new starters but I'm not sure about the art style and 3D graphics. I'm more used to the sprites.

Niceeeee! Did you get it for Pokemon or just for ALL THE GAMES?

Me too...idk about Impidimp or whatever... I think I will get shield. Most people seem to want Sword maybe??

My main motivation was Animal Crossing actually but the more I hear of good games coming to the switch the more I'm happy with my purchase!

Most people do want Sword, I figured it would be more popular for sure

You heard about not every pokemon being transferable? I think it's a bummer for people who have beloved Pokemon they've been with for years but for me I like to catch and train my team up in the current game so I'm not too bothered
As long as I can get Typhlosion, Sceptile and Kyogre I'm good!

Oh yeahhh are you excited for AC as well? I'm ready to owe some bells to mr. nookie

I totally heard that, it sucks for sure, for a lot of people. I'm a shiny hunter and I like all of my mons in one game so...sigh. we'll see what happens

I'm looking forward to this so so so much!
The new starters are adorable and I'm torn between choosing Sobble or Grookey...

I also can't decide if I want Sword or Shield. I originally said I'd get Sword while my friend gets Shield but after seeing what the legendaries look like, Zacian isn't really for me... at least I still have a couple of months to commit to a decision.

Still deciding on whether I should buy a Switch for Sword/Shield, I started back in Gen3 with Ruby and most recently replayed X :feelsblankie:
Ahh, any reason you skipped SM/USUM?

Even when listing them all I forgot Omega Ruby which is like my favourite since it is the remake of the one I started with lol (had to cheekily edit it)
My friend is actively trying to push me to buy shield so he can get sword ^^
Yeah same I really hope they release a good switch edition by christmas so I can get one and play sword/shield atleast 1 month after release.

Scorbunny is still a cutie and I loved it when they gave the trainer a fist bump in the trailer but after seeing these two images of Grookey and Sobble... gosh, my heart is melting.

I got a Switch for my birthday last week and I'm so excited for Sword and Shield. They'll be the first Pokémon games I'll buy (Switch is my first console hehe). Before this, I played Platinum on a DS a friend gave me, and ROMs of Red, HeartGold, Black and Black 2. I really hope I can afford the new game :teehee:
