Mew and Jirachi are very easy to get this time around. if you have a save file from another pokemon related game you can get those 2 by talking to 2 people over in the town with the flowers all over.

@Eel If he wants to be loved so much why does he have to show up every where I go? I would love you more you know!

Nintendo are like woman, You love them for whats on the inside, not the outside.

So is it possible to teach 1 pokemon all/multiple HMs (hidden moves)? like defog and such.

@solarstriker all HMs are used through wild Pokémon, you can’t use your own.

The moves themselves are present as single-use TMs though so you can certainly teach them to as many Pokémon as you have TMs for.

Well, I failed a shiny Stunky yesterday even though the sparkle animation never came up and I think that was because of me having my starter following me around the map out of its Poke Ball. Not the end of the world, though, since I already have a regular Stunky

Favorite Switch games:
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Super Mario Odyssey
Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee

How are people feeling about the game now that it's been out a week?

I'd say I generally have quite mixed feelings. That said, I've only just obtained the 7th badge so I haven't yet experienced everything this game has to offer.

Positives:

  • I think the overworld and chibi style looks gorgeous, especially in certain areas like the water routes and snow routes
  • Having access to some of the Platinum dex is nice
  • A few QoL features here and there, which are welcome having just played Gen 3
  • It's Sinnoh - I'm always going to have fun with this region

Negatives:

  • I really don't like the look of the battles, and actually prefer the sprite-based battles of the original
  • The Grand Underground is underwhelming. As for digging: the core gameplay isn't really enhanced from the originals, worthwhile items seem rarer and I couldn't care less about the statues. As for the wild Pokemon: this feels out of place, and 90% of the Pokemon in there are of no interest. It's nice to have some of the Platinum Pokemon here but why not just include them in the routes to create a more organic experience? Moreover, many of these Pokemon evolve via items which seem very difficult (or impossible) to get in the main game.
  • Level curve is broken so far. I think DP always had slightly odd pacing, but I've spent most of the game now around 10+ levels higher than the gym leaders, and sometimes 20+ levels higher than regular trainers. Before Gen 6 I would be underleveled for most gyms. It must be clear to the developers that people would be overlevelled considering the levels of Pokemon in the Grand Underground, which are much higher than wild Pokemon on the surface
  • Navigating the tile-for-tile overworld can feel awkward with free movement. I constantly find myself bumping into things and struggling to interact with things

All-in-all, I'm enjoying my time reliving Pokemon Diamond...but this could have been so much more. Nothing yet has really convinced me that this is the definitive version of Diamond/Pearl, and I think that once I'm finished with the post-game, Platinum will continue to be my go-to game for the Sinnoh experience.

I'm loving the game and will most likely be my favourite remaster so far.. if mostly because so many people hate it <3

Anyone has a dratini egg they could trade me? My Brother wants one but I’m still pre-national dex.

I can’t trade much in return though, besides a few early version exclusives.

Does anyone have a meowth (or Persian) they’d be willing to trade? Pickup would be preferable but isn’t necessary

I don’t have anything to crazy to trade, but I could get pearl exclusives. I also managed to snag a carnivine and a charmander

Color Splash is underrated!

Phew I almost forget about Drifloon. I managed to catch it.
