I'm so sorry for my late response, Renia! Thanks to Wonder Trade, I no longer need a Popplio anymore. I'll still happily add you as a friend if you want. :)

The Alolan Pokedex is now 100% complete! This is the first time I've fully completed any Pokedex before. Ten year old me is so proud right now.  *sniffle*

That's fine, we can still be friends on there, and congrats! I've just completed the Pokedex as well for the first time in a while. I'm not sure why, but I didn't care as much to complete the dex in other games. I think I just had an easier time in this game.

I worked like crazy to complete the XY dex, which is the first I ever did. I'm not overly trying with this game (I am partway through, long story as to why) but it doesn't seem too difficult.

I have Moon, because my friend decided he wanted Sun because of the legendary on the front. He's been ill, though, and ultimately we haven't been able to play the game together, which has been a shame. We agreed to play it separately but it's sad not having someone to share stuff with and I don't want to spoiler him now he's recovering and will be playing it again, hopefully, sometime.

I quite like the format of this game, though. I prefer trials to gyms so far, I think. And I keep spending a good deal of time in an area raising different pokemon and experimenting with them rather than automatically pushing forward, so maybe that's why my dex is going quite well.

I'm slowly building up my Pokedex too. The online GTS feature makes it a lot easier- I think they added it in X&Y, but I never got into building my dex in that game. Running around on Tauros also makes it easier to breed Pokemon as well. Sorry to hear your friend hasn't gotten to play with you yet Taffeta.

Also, within my first hour of playing the game, I found a shiny Yungoos while I was trying to find a Pichu!!  :blink: It was kind of a stroke of really bad good luck. I haven't been able to find another shiny so far since. Does anyone else have unlucky luck like this?

I'm slowly working on my dex as well and doing some island scans for 6 previous gen starters :3
I'm not GTS'ing that much for the actual Alolan pokemon but I will for the regular pokemon that you can get from the previous games... if I don't decide to grab some of them from pokebank first when it's available for Sun/Moon

I only have two known legit shinies that I have caught. Rockruff (who I evolved) using the SOS method, and Minior who I happen upon while minior color hunting (that was random luck since luckily it didn't use selfdestruct and I had to go an use a higher level pokeball without lowering it's health and hope it was not going to break out XD)

I have Sun and I'm on the 3rd island. I like the trials vs the gyms as well. It gives the game a bit of variety. The missions in the festival plaza have been fun too especially some of the goofier ones. I'm not worrying too much about filling the Dex because I got all but Hoopa for X/Y and figure I could probably transfer anything I can't find.

DD just got Pokemon Sun. OMGS dude! The trainer has this blank, soulless stare. Then she went and stole Youngster Jimmy's soul, cuz we watched his little face contort at the end of the battle and his bright blue eyes go gray. Gamefreak! What were you thinking with that character model? She's only blinked once.  :snicker:

I kind of with they added a bit more personality to the player models.. or have a set of personalities for a player to select... but nope that would be too much customization XD

I'm surprised we were even given the option to choose different responses to things that other characters say. :lol: But I agree, more expressions for the player character would've been nice.

But hey, I'm still thrilled that we can choose the skin color of our character. That's a really huge deal for me and I'm glad it's something that's sticking around.

I'm in Diglett Tunnel now, slowly making progress here. First and foremost, did anyone else burst out laughing during fire trial?

I've noticed the lack expression too during the grass trial. I think the trainer was just a little too calm given the situation. :lol: I totally agree about the skin colour options too. It's so nice we get some options, and more importantly, characters throughout the game are also PoC too.

I'm excited to have access to Poke Pelago now, though now I regret not catching everything in sight. Got to fill my boxes! It's so neat to actually see the Pokemon who get lost in your box have some kind of purpose.

My Cutiefly evolved, I love Ribombee! I also added Salandit on my team, another Pokemon I am loving, the type is so unique and I love the design, especially how the back ignites when attacking. So tempted to add Wimpod or Dewpider (this one I got through Wondertrade, so I don't even think I should have it yet) to my team too.  I think I'm going to have to replay the game again just to try out all these other Pokemon I'm interested in.

And, since I'm singing it's praises, one thing I'm not too fond of is how they limited fishing to designated spots. I liked dropping my lure anywhere I found a new patch of water.
