I don't think Intelleon looks good in any shot honestly.

I saw a front shot of it and yuck...the yellow part gives it a unibrow.

I’m looking for a certain Sword and Shield gif of Leon when he first appears in a battle and he’s being introduced with Charizard slowly appearing behind him. Anyone has that gif?

Are there good level grinding spots? Base SM was awful about this, especially since getting to level 100 had some actual value.

Its probably been already discussed but does dynamaxing bring anything to the table that mega evolution didn't? Its just I'm still trying to figure out why it was ditched and replaced with dynamaxing. Like I am looking forward to the game coming out tomorrow but the lack of mechanic continuity between generations just sucks.

That art makes me like Thwackey a lot more. Still the worst of the mid-evos, but I no longer flat out dislike it.

Rillaboom still the best final evo.

Supposably Farfetch'd Evolution method is to have it KO 3 opponents in one battle.

Considering the fairly limited number of trainers that have 3 pokemon in 1 battle... make sure you bring Farfetch'd to those Gym Battles.
Does Farfetch’d have to be a certain level? Or will it evolve no matter what if it KO’s 3 in a row?

The official art looks good.

Grookey line looks great. Cinderace looks a lot better in art. Inteleon looks a bit more dynamic, but still not my favorite.

No matter what, but you have to progress far in the game to get the opportunity to KO 3 in a row
That’s something at least. Isn’t the first gym with 3 like the 4th or 5th? I guess I’ll roll with a Farfetch’d until then and force myself to just use him at that point and reload if I accidentally screw it up.

I actually like Farfetch'd's evolution method? It's like he needs to prove himself as a warrior to evolve. Bring him to a gym and have him prove his worth.

every Pokemon can do it, and budget is saved by most of them just using upscaled models.

that and they insist on a new gimmick new every gen it seems.

competitively? it increases your HP stat only. Max Moves do Z-move type damage (not as extreme) and a secondary effect.

All of their official art looks dope. Really liking the Gainax/Trigger pose for grookey's middle evo.

Soundtrack looks to be Ichinose, Adachi, someone named Keita Okamoto, and Toby Fox. I guess Kageyama and Sato are on DP remakes.

Wow, Raboot(lol) looks so great in the art... uh... I guess it's final evolution doesn't look as bad to me(not a big fan) here as it does in the game. I just... don't know between grookey and it now... 😣

Was it known that Yusuke Kozaki was credited under Pokémon design? Dude's been getting around the Nintendoverse.

Is there an easy way to get Hidden Abilities on Pokémon this gen? I'd really like a Thick Fat Appletun at some point and would like to not have to wait for an event.

Looked up Keita Okamoto, who is credited under sound (as well as Sound Planning). Okamoto is credited on USUM and LGPE for data field system design and data design, respectively, meaning Game Freak is continuing their tradition of pulling their composers from unrelated internal groups.

Raid bosses sometimes have them.

I love the second forms this gen so much.

Shame I can't say the same about the final ones.
