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.

Dream: Looks like a remake of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni will be airing in July. The original seiyuu from the 2000s series will reprise their roles for the remake and judging from the animation, looks like it will have more polish to it compared...
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:24 GMT
Dream: ...to the 2000s series.
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:30 GMT
Taka: That's interesting to hear. Didn't know it was going to get a remake.
Mar 22, 2020 0:33:35 GMT
Dream: Guess I'm gonna focus on wrapping up Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken whenever it comes out today. Been one of my favorites for the season.
Mar 22, 2020 16:44:54 GMT
Taka: I need to catch up or drop/put on hold whatever series I tried.
Mar 22, 2020 21:25:15 GMT
Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.
Mar 24, 2020 2:31:40 GMT
Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.
Mar 24, 2020 13:38:28 GMT
Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.
Mar 27, 2020 17:48:40 GMT
Taka: They closed off beaches and parks along bike paths as well as extending K-12 school closure to mid May while colleges are cancelled for the semester.
Mar 29, 2020 0:47:15 GMT
CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.
Mar 29, 2020 2:46:08 GMT
Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...
Mar 29, 2020 15:11:51 GMT
Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.
Mar 29, 2020 15:13:27 GMT
El_Directo: Stay safe guys
Mar 29, 2020 20:08:55 GMT
Taka: I think the only thing not closed for mass gathering other than essential services would be funerals in my area. The mayor and staff have been pretty busy in clarifying things in press releases. Edit: my mistake. Funerals are closed.
Mar 29, 2020 21:52:25 GMT
Dream: Gonna try whipping up a review for Dorohedoro at some point tomorrow. Find that I have quite a bit to cover with the series.
