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.

@sachirin yeah I keep running into tiny things too! In some crowded areas it seems better to hop off and walk/run instead.

@deasach They’re so tiny! Sometimes they look like rocks or weeds! Sometimes they’re actually rocks or weeds. It’s quite exhausting to squint.

@sachirin ha especially when playing handheld!

@deasach And I’m always on handheld! 😭

@sachirin oh on a Switch Lite? My eyes can’t cope with the size of things when my daughter hands hers to me…!

@deasach On a regular Switch, but I almost never play it docked. The husband’s on a Switch Lite though 💀

@sachirin I got tired of never having the OG Switch when I wanted it so I treated myself to an OLED earlier in the year. The slightly bigger screen is much better than both OG and Lite for my middle aged eyes, ha ha.

@deasach @sachirin I've been so tempted to trade my OG switch for the Scarlet/Violet special edition, which would bring the price down to "manageable treat" instead of "yo that's a lot of my rent"

@Raena doooo iiiiitt @sachirin

@Raena @deasach Unless they come up with an OLED Animal Crossing Switch (which is highly unlikely), I’m pretty much stuck with this ACNL v2 model for the rest of my days 💀

@sachirin on the other hand you could start saving for whatever next-gen Nintendo thing must surely be coming in the next 2-5 years and be able to eventually run Violet in 4K, right? @Raena

@deasach @Raena If do they roll out a new Switch console eventually, one of the permutations had better be Animal Crossing themed or else I'm not biting 😂​

@sachirin @deasach I would be happy with just the Joycons but they didn't wanna release them here

@deasach @sachirin haaahahahaha bold of you to assume

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

@sachirin @deasach I have that one too hahaha! Also a day 1 switch that I'm just not using.

@sachirin I am now so cautious over small things I stare at the ground then end up getting lost ...
Or I think they're tiny pokemon and try to avoid them but it turns out it's just rocks on the road...

cw 

@crystalia Omg same 😭 I don’t get why they’re so tiny. Some of them weren’t that size when they were in their respective regions? Or did I think they were bigger because the character models were deformed?
