Time to Pokémon GO to
Damn can the game be out for a whole day b4 we're releasing guides?
@ThomastheDankEngine am guessing you can only use the one like with all the others.
Is there anyway of downloading saves data from Pokemon games you don't own to get the event exclusive pokemon? On a Switch that ISNT running CFW of course. The only Switch save I have is for Pokemon Sword, I never got Go! Or Pearl/Diamond. I'm guessing there isn't a way of doing it but thought it doesn't hurt to ask, there's always someone more knowledgeable out there.
Thank you for the reply @shinesprites Unfortunately I have no friends so this isn't possible. Ah well, I dont think I'm missing too much or anything game changing. Thanks again.
Is there a way for me to see if a Pokémon has an evolution in the game? Cause I'm working on Onix and I know he's got a second form. But I don't know if that's in the game. And the Pokédex doesn't show any indication if a Pokémon has an evolution or not.
Any ideas how I could see this without having to do extensive googling?
