Yesterday, the siblings finished the Pokedex. If my memory was correct, the last ones were Drampa, Cursola, Corsola. The weather wasn't right for the last few days so they did max raids for the last Pokemon which were Shield exclusive.
As for Gigantimax, they are trying to get 3 of each. Corviknight and Sandaconda is done. Need 1 more Drednaw, Centiskorch.
I did an experiment. Doing the online today. Discord was pleasant. They had a lot of patience since we had issues with the Y comms.
First online raid was with a 5 star Frosmoth.
Wasn't sure if friend code were required for link code max raids. It was either too many stamps or there was no option to input link code at the menu for raid battles as linked battles and trades had a input field for link codes.
for some reason, I noticed the kids had an easier time catching Snorelax compared to other Gmax Pokemon. It had a higher spawn rate or we were lucky.
Gigantamax Snorlax has been discovered!
We now know that there are special Snorlax among the Snorlax that you can find living in the Galar region. These Snorlax are capable of Gigantamaxing! When Gigantamaxed, these special Snorlax gain a different appearance than regular Dynamax Snorlax, and they can also unleash a G-Max Move called G-Max Replenish.
Today is a special event for Pokemon Sword and Shield. For a limited time:
More Shiny Magikarp Briefly Appearing in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Max Raid Battles Be on the lookout for Pokémon Dens in the Galar Wild Area that may contain Shiny Magikarp.
Kick off the new year with more Magikarp appearing in Pokémon Dens in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield for a limited time. The Magikarp you'll encounter in Max Raid Battles will also have a much higher chance than normal of being Shiny, so don't miss your opportunity to battle and catch this special Pokémon.
To take advantage of these better odds in a Max Raid Battle, you'll need to connect your Nintendo Switch system to the internet. Then, when you see a pillar of light shining from a Pokémon Den in the Wild Area, you can walk up to the Pokémon Den and interact with it to start a Max Raid Battle with a Dynamax Pokémon.
Your chances of encountering more Shiny Magikarp in Pokémon Dens will last only from December 31 through January 3, so grab some friends and head to the Wild Area today.
I was eating dinner, so I managed to came in and watched my siblings catch one together after 5th or 6th attempts on hunting Shiny Magikarp across the wild area. It's their first shiny.
I made them Tweet it to get the image. Good job, my brothers and sisters.
Celebrate the six month anniversary of this brand-new chapter!
February 27, 2020 Sygna Suit Red & Charizard, Sygna Suit Elesa & Rotom, and the Battle Villa Debut during the Six-Months Celebration in Pokémon Masters Plus, new story chapters and more Pokémon Evolutions, as well as bonus gems just for logging in!
Can you believe we've already reached the six-month mark since the release of Pokémon Masters? To celebrate, one of the most highly anticipated Trainers is joining the action, along with a new story event, lots of gems from log-in bonuses, and the fun and challenging Battle Villa feature!
Sygna Suit Red & Charizard
The hero of Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue is joining the playable cast of Pokémon Masters alongside his iconic partner, Charizard. This sync pair is just as powerful as you'd expect, with passive skills that grant them perfect accuracy, a chance to reduce the sync move countdown, and a chance to charge the move gauge. Charizard will even Mega Evolve into Mega Charizard X after using a sync move! Plus, Sygna Suit Red & Charizard's sync grid is already expanded, so be sure to earn some sync orbs to make them even more powerful.
You can scout Sygna Suit Red & Charizard during the limited-time Poké Fair Scout, available until March 15, 2020, at 10:59 p.m. PDT. Don't miss out on your chance to scout this fair-exclusive sync pair!
Challenge the Battle Villa
The Battle Villa is a single-player gauntlet-style feature that allows many different sync pairs to shine. Each Battle Villa challenge period lasts for two weeks. Each day, you'll be able to create a team of nine sync pairs and see how far you can progress. Each battle will still be in the standard 3-on-3 format, but HP, MP, and status conditions will carry over after each battle. If the nine sync pairs you selected for the day are all defeated, you can try again on the following day, picking up where you left off.
You'll be able to earn lots of completion rewards in the Battle Villa, including special items such as Lucky Cookies and Lucky Scrolls. You can use these rewards to give your sync pairs new capabilities known as lucky skills. At the end of a challenge period, you'll receive rewards corresponding to the number of battles you cleared, so try to get as far as you can!
New Main Story Chapters and Valerie & Sylveon
Three new story chapters have been added to the main story, allowing you to continue the story of Pokémon Masters up to chapter 24. Completing these new story chapters will also allow you to add Valerie & Sylveon to your team.
Shining Star Event: Sygna Suit Elesa & Rotom
Not one to be outdone by anyone, Elesa is reintroducing herself, clad in a stylish new sygna suit, as part of a new sync pair with Rotom. She's starring in the Shining Star story event, which features the all-new event map. You'll progress through the story by navigating the map, battling opponents, and unlocking new areas. You can also scout Sygna Suit Elesa & Rotom in the Sygna Suit Elesa Spotlight Scout, available until March 15, 2020, at 10:59 p.m. PDT.
While Elesa & Zebstrika are great at launching powerful physical Electric-type moves, Sygna Suit Elesa & Rotom focus on special attacks. They can use X Sp. Atk All to increase the power of special moves used by your whole team. Perhaps the most exciting part of this sync pair is their move Breathtaking!, which reduces the sync move countdown of an ally while also increasing that ally's accuracy and critical-hit rate. Like Sygna Suit Red & Charizard, Sygna Suit Elesa & Rotom come with a sync grid that is already expanded.
Evolve More Pokémon
Many new Evolution sync pair stories have been added, enabling more Pokémon to evolve once their sync pairs have reached a high-enough level. You can help Calem & Espurr, Hilbert & Oshawott, Blaine & Ponyta, and many more sync pairs become even more powerful than before.
To commemorate Pokémon Day, you'll receive a one-time gift of 3,000 gems by logging in to the game before March 15, 2020, at 10:59 p.m. PDT. You can also benefit from the Six-Months Celebration Log-In Bonus, in which you'll be able to receive up to 3,000 additional gems over a 14-day period just by logging in each day.
Pokémon Masters is available to download now, so don't miss out on these special events! For more details, be sure to visit the Pokémon Masters official site.
To celebrate this year's Pokémon Day, from now until the 2nd March, Mewtwo and the Kanto region starters will be appearing in Max Raid Battles in Pokémon Sword and Shield. Gigantamax Grimmsnarl, Kingler, Hatterene, Orbeetle and Toxtricity will also show up from time to time.
As exciting as this may sound, unfortunately, you won't be able to catch Mewtwo. While we're sure many trainers would love to stockpile this particular pocket monster, it won't be possible during this limited-time Wild Area event. Instead, you'll receive a bunch of rewards every time you defeat the legendary.
An armored version of Mewtwo has also made its return to the mobile-hit Pokémon GO. This ties in with Pokémon Day and the release of Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back—Evolution on Netflix. Above is a look at the official Japanese trailer for Mewtwo Max Raid Battles in Sword and Shield. We'll share more details when the English Pokémon website is updated.

It turns out Gigantamax Pikachu won’t be the only former exclusive showing up for everyone in Pokemon Sword and Shield raids. Gigantamax Meowth and Eevee will be making their debut in May 2020 too! Each one of these characters will take turns appearing in raids, and people who show up each week should hopefully have enough time to catch ‘em all. [Thanks, Serebii!]
The Gigantamax Eevee will be the second special Pokemon Sword and Shield raid. The character will first appear on May 19, 2020, then leave on May 26, 2020. Previously, people needed to have Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! save data on their Nintendo Switch to get the character.
The Gigantamax Meowth will then show up on May 26, 2020 and stick around until June 1, 2020. Previously, anyone who bought Pokemon Sword and Shield before January 15, 2020 were able to download the character as a “gift.”
In addition to the Gigantamax Meowth and Eevee Max Raid dates, we know how long Gigantamax Pikachu will be around. The official Japanese Pokemon Twitter account says the character will show up until May 19, 2020. That’s when it will swap places with Gigantamax Eevee.
Pokemon Sword and Shield are available for the Nintendo Switch. Also, huge Gigantamax Pikachu and Meowth plush toys will launch in Japan in October 2020.
Video showcasing the Isle of Armor which is coming to June 17
New Pokémon in "The Isle of Armor" and "The Crown Tundra," which is slated for release this fall, will include Galarian forms for Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, and Slowbro. The expansions will also add Gigantamax forms for Blaistoise and Venusaur. The new Legendary Pokémon will include Regieleki and Regidrago, which will debut in "The Crown Tundra," as well as the previously revealed Kubfu and its evolution Urshifu.
Other new features in "The Isle of Armor" will include the Cram-o-matic item-making device, new Tutor Moves, and Max Soup. New features in "The Crown Tundra" will include Dynamax Adventure, the Galarian Star Tournament, and the new character Peony.
New Pokémon Snap game for Nintendo Switch is based on its namesake, which was first released for the Nintendo 64 console in 1999. This completely new game will take Trainers on an adventure to unknown islands overflowing with natural sights such as jungles and beaches, where they can research various Pokémon in their natural habitats. They will take photos to make their very own in-game Pokémon Photodex, all while discovering new, never-before-seen Pokémon expressions and behaviours.
The app hopes to provide "a fun toothbrushing experience" for children, giving them something to enjoy while looking after their teeth and hopefully helping parents in the process. You can see how it all works below.
Pokémon Café Mix
Pokémon Café Mix is a unique puzzle game where players can link Pokémon icons together by swirling them around. To link icons, players will need to grab a Pokémon icon and drag it next to another icon of the same Pokémon species. Icons will be cleared after they are linked together.
The player will be the owner of a café that Pokémon visit, where they will work alongside Pokémon to prepare drinks and dishes for Pokémon customers by completing puzzles. Pokémon on the café’s staff have special Café Skills that can be used to help complete puzzles. Once a puzzle is completed, the player can serve an order to a customer. The player can increase their friendship levels with Pokémon by serving them delicious drinks and dishes. As more puzzles are completed, the café can be upgraded by getting new tools or having new areas added. New Pokémon may come visit, lured in by the different upgrades.
Sword and Shield
The presentation announced that the Pokémon Victini will join Niantic's Pokémon GO game this year. "A new take" on Mega Evolution will also debut in the smartphone game this year. Galarian Farfetch'd debuted in the game during the presentation.
"The Isle of Armor," the first of two expansions for the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Nintendo Switch role-playing games, launched during the presentation. To mark the release, players can battle Zeraora in Max Raid Battles from June 17 to 28. If 1 million players win the Max Raid Battle during the event period, all players will be able to receive Shiny Zeraora.
The Pokémon Company will hold another Pokémon Presents streaming program on June 24.
"The Crown Tundra," the second of two expansions for Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield is slated to launch this fall. The Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games shipped worldwide for the Switch on November 15.
Pokemon Masters has received an update, and with that update has come a new Legendary Arena battle. Players can now challenge the Legendary Cobalion through the Pokemon Masters‘ Legendary Arena. From July 7 to 21, 2020 players will be able to receive participation rewards and medals upon besting this Legendary Pokemon in combat.
Another Pokemon Sword and Shield Max Raid event is in effect in the Wild Area, shifting around the creatures you’ll be seeing in dens. This time, it is a return to something a little more typical. Following a brief Pikachu family reunion, Gigantamax Drednaw and Sandaconda are ushering in a group of ground and water-type characters.
This new Pokemon Sword and Shield Max Raid event will hang around until 5pm PT on August 30, 2020/2am CET on August 31, 2020. In addition to those specific Gigantamax forms of Drednaw and Sandaconda, a number of more ordinary ground and water-type Pokemon will appear. As pointed out by Serebii on its event page, people can also expect to see Chewtle, Feebas, Gastrodon, Hippopotas, Hippowdon, Milotic, Quagsire, Shellos, Silicobra, and Wooper.
This also means we’ve seen two water-related Max Raid events in a relatively short amount of time. Prior to the Pikachu line event, there was a more standard water-type Max Raid event. While Drednaw wasn’t showing up back then, people did have a better chance of encountering (and catching) a shiny Wailord.

Taka: I was going to comment more. I have to write up my daily reports. I got a 2nd job, it's a temporary job online regarding social media and COVID-19 outreach towards an ethnic community. I woke up at a weird time but I slept more than 10 hours due to feeling

Taka: sick or something. The 2019 manga project and the Best Anime Vice stuff will be posted before the end of November. I will get it done.

Old Man Dream: So.... dragging my heels for another 2.5 weeks before Ralph Breaks the Internet is available on Disney+? Yay!
Nov 25, 2020 3:22:00 GMT
Taka: Really? Disney is slow to add the stuff that already got released. Same goes for DC Universe. Then DC UNiverse got converted into a comic only app. Well, Disney has more success. I think the other streaming sites are trying to hold on for money too.
Nov 25, 2020 3:33:37 GMT
Old Man Dream: Ralph Breaks the Internet is on Netflix. One of the remaining Disney movies that have yet to hit Disney+ because of prior streaming agreements Disney had in place before launching their streaming site.
