    Dude, a professor oak challenge in this game is gonna be painful, because basically the entire dex is available before literally everything- yes, you dint even need Koraidon/Miraidon upgrades to get places

    can confirm filling the dex is pretty easy for most part in scarlet and violet. its only taken me a week (this is also with a fulltime job), and i got less than 50 to go with most of them being exclusives.

    Applin is only supposed to spawn in trees. Its also bloody hard to find.
    So someone explain me to why i found one rolling around on the ground while exploring the southwest. Near a tree, but definitely not in it. I didnt even touch the tree, i had just arrived to it. xD
    Great video like always!

    It shocks me how few people realize you get free rewards from your pokedex every 10 new pokemon you register. Open your dex and click x. I didn't realize this until I was at 300 and the animations took like 5 min. You get some good shit that way

    Just an unimportant observation I made, if you level up tandemouse using it specifically in battle, there is an evo animation, I just evolved mine last night, so i'm wondering if its just a matter of leveling inside or out of battle.

  • StickMaster500

    It’s still crazy that with all the new Pokémon introduced into Scarlet and Violet, we have officially past 1000 Pokémon in the National Dex going from #001 to #1010!

      @Guy Who Ate All The Pizza right, because not having every Pokémon in the game hasn't been a huge complaint since SwSh at all. Just shut up, if you don't know what you're talking about.

    • Guy Who Ate All The Pizza
      Guy Who Ate All The Pizza 6 hours ago

      The National Dex argument is stupid because the people who will actually go out and catch all 1000+ Pokémon is a HUGE MINORITY.
      The whole entire movement is based around kids being butthurt they can't use 1 or 2 Pokémon they kinda like and will 100% forget about just to use a Lucario or Garchomp again lmao.
      The Pokémon Company isn't gonna care about the 8 or so people who wanted to Seel for some reason.

  • Plasmafox

    My catchmon was the T-Normal Scyther with a static spawn early on. No status move, but able to grab 150% damage on False Swipe and switch defensive type when it counts e.g against rock, and with Eviolite it could tank a lot of hits. And with Twave on so many mons, status was always an option if I needed it.

    maushold does have a evo cutscene you just have to use it in battle and have it evolve after the battle FYI

    It almost certainly took you more than 32 hours. Small Ant discovered that the in game time is calculated through frames, not real world time. He had been playing for 16 hours and the game only logged 14.5 hours due to the drops in framerate. Will be very interesting to see if this can be done in less than 24 hours though!

      @Connor Vide what an asinine argument lmfao.
      A patch is a set of changes to a computer program or its supporting data designed to update, fix, or improve it.

    In terms of late game grinding, I found the most consistent spot to be the cave you find Iron Valiant/Roaring Moon in to be the best, level 55 CHQ set spawn pretty often in there so you’re getting anywhere from 2-4K xp per battle depending on if you have lucky egg equipped. Took me no time at all to clear up those last few evos in there.

  • Fukano

    23:57 I did ! I never spoil myself how to evolve new Pokémon, I love to spend hours trying to find how, and up until now the only Pokémon I've never found how to evolve and had to spoil myself was Runerigus.
    But to be fair, Kingambit's evolution was really easy to find, you just had to read the Leader's Crest description and Bisharp's Pokédex description, those were HUGE clues.

    • Fukano
      Fukano 8 days ago +1

      @Fai ღ Oooh, I did not know the specifics ! What I did was I gave him the Crest, and defeated a bunch of other Bisharp, and at some point after an hour or so, he evolved after leveling up !
      To be fair it happens a lot of the times, I get the evolution but I don't exactly know how I did it, a good example is Overqwil/Wyrdeer from PLA, I thought completing their dex pages was what is required, because they evolved soonish after I completed Hisuian Qwilfish and Stantler pages, but when I checked weeks after I realized you did not need to do all that lol

    • Fai ღ
      Fai ღ 8 days ago +1

      If true, congrats on the figuring out!

    also Ortega is lucky he is a child and also fictional I would throw hands with him, guys who are short and rich/have a regal aesthetic activate some feral fighting instinct in me I didn't know I had. Like yeah, I want to prove I am the superior short guy like I'm some kind of animal, but the added aesthetic/wealth makes me want to rip and tear regardless of if they are a good likable person or not lmfao
