Sun & Moon Progress Thread
« on: November 23, 2016, 17:04 »
So now SuMo have been released today for the rest of the world (i.e europe) I thought i'd make a little thread. Post your team, where you're at, etc etc.

I've been avoiding spoilers on a lot of the stuff, I've yet to even look at the world map so it's been fun so far not knowing what's next! So if you've beaten the game already then it would be nice to keep this spoiler free as possible for the time being lmao.

I'm just at Hau'oli City currently, suited and booted with a new hairdo and contact lenses. Just about to fight team skull after some grinding.

My team as of now is:
Rowan - Rowlet lvl 11
Dippy - Slowpoke lvl 9
Spike - Yungoos lvl 8
Mitzi - Meowth lvl 7

No idea what my planned team is going to be tbh.

In Moon I beat the main game. Messed up with Tapu Koko and need to defeat the Elite Four again to get another chance to catch it, caught one Ultra Beast so far, and am currently searching for Zygarde cells and the two cores I'm missing.

I'm doing a challenge thing with my own rules:

1) Catch every Pokémon encountered that is not in the dex.
2) No Pokémon may be moved from the party to the box unless it's fully evolved, unless it's to make room for a utility Pokémon (for example Hold Back Munchlax or HM user).
3) Pokémon taken from the box must be taken in order, from the first non-fully evolved Pokémon.
4) Every Pokémon acquired must be nicknamed.
5) GTS or wonder trade Pokémon may be used as long as they have a nickname and are not higher in level than the highest level in the party. It is possible to ask for a nickname in GTS but this will usually be ignored.
6) Battle mode is SET (no free switch when a Pokémon faints).

Here is my team so far:
Litten F Lv.11 - Mamiti (soft resetted for a female)
Pikipek M Lv.10 - Pekdek
Munchlax M Lv.8 - Pancake (free internet download from mystery gift, has Happy Hour and Hold Back)
Ledyba F Lv.8 - Starbug
Metapod M Lv.8 - Boggle
Yungoos F Lv.7 - Nattie

The coolest thing that happened so far was Munchlax using Metronome, getting Spacial Rend which got Alola Form Rattata down to 1HP in one hit, which I then caught.

I ended up with Dark Void from Metronome and pretty annoyed that only Darkrai can use it. I think this was during one of the Totem battles and the thing kept getting help successfully.

I'm pretty sure Smeargle can learn Dark Void via Sketch, unless something has changed in this gen.

Darkrai can only use Dark Void successfully now similar to how Hoopa Unbound can only use Hyperspace Fury successfully.

 Toastie - Level 13 (Rowlet)
 Pikipek - Level 7
 Ledyba - Level 7
 Yungoos - Level 8
 Rattata - Level 8
 Slowpoke - Level 7

 I've just gotten to Hau'oli City! Pretty much just gotten there now this minute. I'm playing Moon right now so it's day time at the moment - it's nice. The Mario outfit in the clothes shop caught me off guard aha.

 Really enjoying it at the moment. I've got a new do and I'll take it to uni with me tomorrow for those tasty streetpasses.

Spore is better anyways (save not hitting grass types).

So I've literally gone mad and played for about 10 hours (whilst doing other things as well of course, but I've just got off the ferry to Akala island.

Popplio (Roland) Lvl. 20
Growlithe (Buster) Lvl. 16
Magnemite (Zabi) Lvl. 17
Kedabra (Sike) Lvl. 18

I want more Alolan Pokemon and there don't seem to be that many?? It's bothering me how it's mostly Kanto Pokemon tbf because after a whole summer of Pokemon GO they're about the only Pokemon I don't really want to see. Also all the Alolan Pokemon I have seen so far are a bit ugly tbf.

I'm on the second island and I have:
Oricorio Lvl. 15
Trumbeak Lvl. 16
Torracat Lvl. 17
Cutiefly Lvl. 16
Shiny Mudbray(!!!!!!) Lvl. 12

I was using another Mudbray, then this one appears. He has a bad nature and the wrong ability, but I love him anyway.

I put a nicknamed Pichu up on the GTS last night asking for a Rowlet, and when I checked this morning it was traded!

I relaxed my rules a little so I can swap out for a traded Pokémon of the same species if it's not a higher level.

Also if a traded Pokémon doesn't have a nickname and I don't have another of that species I will allow myself to use it until it's fully evolved or I'm able to acquire one myself. After all one of the reasons I use these rules is to incentivise evolving as many Pokémon as possible to fill out the Pokédex.

Updated team:

Litten F Lv.12 - Mamiti
Pikipek M Lv.10 - PECKI (swapped to another Pikipek I received in a trade)
Munchlax M Lv.10 - Pancake
Ledyba F Lv.10 - Starbug
Metapod M Lv.9 - Boggle
Yungoos F Lv.9 - Nattie

Not forgetting the double battle aspect for VGC etc.

I wouldn't expect shinies on wonder trade until cheat devices become rampant again.
