I'd like to, but without a GTS, I can't exactly get what I need.


there are trading boards where you get what you need in less than five minutes and you dont have to worry about some person putting their lv 7 shiny lugia for trade asking for a lv 1 male vespiquen. people literally just gave me type null and sylvally just because i said i needed one, so complaining about a lack of gts is just whining


If you have to use something outside the game itself to accomplish something, that's a flaw with the game itself. Criticism =/= whining, which I didn't even do.

Yeah I'm at 270. I'm trying to complete the Dex because I need to obtain the Shiny Charm before I start to breed for Competitive Pokemon like every other Pokemon game before this one.

That is indeed the flaw of having two different versions of the same game, not necessarily the lack of GTS. Maybe Pokemon is better off with just one version? It's certainly more convenient that way.

I can't say for sure. I just know that ditching the "third version" idea was brilliant.

Totally! I love completing my Pokédexes and Shield is no exception!^^ I've been going through my Galar adventure quite slowly, and part of the reason is because I'm trying to give myself a head start with the dex by catching every new Pokémon I encounter so that there's less Pokémon to catch for the dex after beating the game. My dex is currently at 285.

I'm at 399 missing Zacian. I'm trying to trade a freakin shiny Gmax Corviknight and people still don't want to trade. I think Zacian is currently going for $60 lol.

Even without version exclusives, you still have trade evolutions. I wouldn't be opposed to a game where you can get every single Pokemon, and ironically, Sword and Shield is pretty close thanks to Raids.

Will capture all the Gen 8 Pokemon for my living Pokedex, but otherwise no unless I decide to get HOME.

Wait, how does one get the charm first?

The way i play every Pokemon game starting from Gen 6 onwards is to capture/evolve everything available to me as i play the game, so that by the time i reach the champion, my regional dex is already more or less complete.

Not only does this make the single player campaign much meatier, but it makes completing the dex easy. For example, im 5 badges in and my dex is at around 315.
