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!

One of the stores taking preorders for 1926 is offering this free wineglass and glass marker set. The joke here is it's Dante-themed, and of all the characters in the game, they chose the one character who's completely unable to hold his liquor.

In somewhat related news, amiami graciously cancelled my physical preorder (whew), and the game's been pushed back to November (whew)

Toraware no Palm Refrain. It’s an...interesting choice, but why not. It’s 50% off, I have the sd card space for it, and the pretty guy underwater right there is voiced by Ishikawa Kaito, who played Dante in Piofiore.

Ishikawa himself actually has a gameplay video for this on youtube and it was fun to watch so I figured I’d give this a try. That and living in isolation makes you do things, I guess.

@sachirin I said that as a joke. Though, the soundtrack of Gen 3 games is played by a fanfare, so it heavily uses brass instruments, like the trumpet. Unlike other genenerations, in which the instruments are more varied.

I don't know who needs this, but.

More of Kanno Yoko’s work magically appeared on Apple Music and I am so so grateful I can listen to these while in isolation.

@sachirin My account creation date was when the servers kept crashing, so my actual play start date was during 2016. I became way more addicted than any of my friends who got me started.

@yamadaman お誕生日おめでとうございまーす!🎂✨✨✨

My trainer is 4 years old today!
Casually catching Pokemon with my bf’s account led me to starting my own account, to buying a main series Pokemon game for 3DS. Funny how that turned out!

A tip for filling your pokédex when you have pokémon Home.

You may have noticed that when bringing pokémon from Home to Sword/Shield, the pokédex entry is not automatically filled. But there is a way in the game to get the entry, by leaving the pokémon at the day care and taking it back.

Here's an example with :porygon_z:​.

Life is short. Remove exclusive merchandise from their precious packaging and display them.
