I DID IT I BEAT THEM AND BECAME CHAMPION ✨
I ACTUALLY FINISHED MY FIRST POKEMON GAME EVER

Thank you to so many people on donphan.social and even pokemon.mastportal.info for all the tips!
Now I have to do this all over again for my Diamond team, but for now I’m just so proud of myself!

Serebii Update: Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Version 1.1.0 to go live tomorrow. Provides some bug fixes and adds Ranked Battle.

They also note they are listening to feedback seriously and will continue improvements

Known details @ serebii.net/index2.shtml

Slowly getting settled back in. Here are the books I bought on my trip.

I really regret not picking up anything by local authors (I didn’t buy from the first bookstore, thinking the bigger one would have a better selection, but it turns out that one was too big for anyone to know where anything is/staff wasn’t particularly helpful/companions were in a hurry etc. Kindle it is then.

Turns out I forgot to show my Switch so I just got a birthday card, not a birthday card AND a :flabebe: code 😂

A Pokemon Center Singapore report 

Forgot to mention they had a promo where you’d get free gift wrapping paper (Sprigatito, Fuecoco or Quaxly) for every purchase of SGD60. And I barely made it in time for a birthday card with a free :flabebe: code! I also got a free Sprigatito sticker.

The personnel at the cashier had Naranja and Uva Academy tops on which was really cute! It was the Naranja guy who forgot to give us the free wrapping paper 😂

1) It’s just as the reviews say, it’s much smaller than the regular PokeCen but if you’re from SEA it’s convenient for getting stuff.

2) They should do something about the blank shelves right smack in front of the store though.

3) Only one Quaxly 1:1 plush left. And it looked like it was just for display too.

4) The husband was so sad the Blissey case couldn’t fit his phone.

5) Even with the items I bought I still racked up to SGDxxx but in the end that was okay because I did intend to use that amount. Not in picture: Quaxly and Fuecoco keychains for the husband and my brother-in-law (I wanted us to all have starter keychains)

6) Not my starter but Fuecoco was really my secret first choice and the plush looked so cute so I got it. And getting all 3 starters would’ve gone over budget 💀

S/V student NPCs, a theory 

By this time I think everybody who’s played this game has noticed how some of the students are obviously too old for school. (Not to be ageist or anything.) One of them even proudly says, “I’ve been in the Academy for 20 years!”

Is this Game Freak’s way of acknowledging their biggest, most vocal, most finicky player base - adults who’ve been playing Pokemon since they were kids? 😂 I can’t help but think of it that way and even though I should be insulted (as a non-kid playing a kid), I just find it completely hilarious.

MISSION. ACCOMPLISHED. cw for Paldean Pokemon 

So bouncy and jiggly 😭💕

Make sure general nerdiness, tabletop roleplay, and other related pursuits are the kind of content you want to see in your timeline.

Pokémon Scarlet & Pokémon Violet PSA:

1. If you have save-data for LGPE, SwSh, BDSP and PLA on your Switch, you can get a certain NPC in Mesagoza City to craft special Rotom Phone cases for you.

2. Don't forget to collect your special Flying Tera Type Pikachu via Mystery Gift. In order to access the Mystery Gift feature, open the 'X' menu and select Poké Portal.

Friend-shaped, will find you no matter how deep in the snow you are, still good at detecting termal water spots, 11/10 best winter companion

Violet highlights so far (no actual spoilers, but still cw) 

• I've killed my ride maybe 5 times by now
• Ran into so many tiny things too
• One time I accidentally knocked out what was most probably a shiny
• I'll probably never qualify for a job at Subway
• My chronic inability to read maps properly sure gets me places

Also, my trainer spent the first few hours looking eerily like Haman Karn from Zeta Gundam before I finally managed to find a salon.

We scratched the steelbook while opening the package 💀 Anyway here we go

Hi donphan.social! Please consider using CWs liberally for until maybe the end of the year? Some people on the instance won’t be able to play until the holidays, while some are just really slow players* so it would be great if we kept donphan.social a safe space while spoilers abound elsewhere online. Thank you.
