Working on catching non legendary Pokemon before challenging the Elite Four again to have another chance to capture Tapu Koko.

I didn't take any notice before as I was further behind and not interested in spoilers, but there was no need to battle the Elite Four again. Just KO Tapu Koko the first time, then go back to the place and touch the statue. Worked for me.

^Really? So this game takes a different approach to getting Legendary Pokémon to show up again if KO. Huh.

Well it's pretty necessary to use this KO method if you're resetting for a specific nature etc., due to the long dialogue and auto save after beating the Elite Four.

Ok, I'm gonna rant for a bit so you can just ignore this paragraph. Am I the only person who is starting to get a little bored at everyone ever calling the legendary Nebby. I know one other person who named it something else. And no calling it Nebula barely counts as calling it something else. My Lunala is Artemis so my Solgaleo can be called Apollo.

In other news completed the Pokedex and got a 50 win streak in the battle tree last Friday and now I don't know if there is anything left for me to do in this game.
Sup ~ I RP and stuff.
Also called Cody on err... pretty much everything.
When I play Pokemon I follow my personal Rule: I can only use Each Pokemon once across all games that I can transfer Pokemon across. I have used 108 different Pokemon I think.

Eh, Nebby just seemed the most fitting name forvme. I mean, thats the name it was given by a loving trainer, it felt wrong to take that away from it.

Then again I named my rowlet robin hoot, so what do I know?

I was SOS chaining Trumbeaks, looking for its hidden ability Pickup, but found a shiny one instead. >.<

I didn't count the chain, but I would guess around 15.



I got this idea from a reddit post, it's a full Baton Pass chain for the purpose of SOS chaining for shinies and hidden abilities. All but the setup lead and end of chain catcher carry Recycle and Leppa Berry so they never run out of PP.

Vangoni - Smeargle @ Leftovers
[Moody]
- Ingrain
- Substitute
- Double Team
- Baton Pass

Setup passer that provides healing, evasion, a sub to prevent status and another layer of protection, as well as a bunch of stat boosts from Moody. Phazing from Roar/Whirlwind/Dragon Tail/Circle Throw is also prevented by Ingrain.

Shakoni - Smeargle @ Leppa Berry
[Moody]
- False Swipe
- Soak
- Recycle
- Baton Pass

The idea here is to get the initial Pokémon to 1 HP to increase the chance of it calling for help, as well as later on when you need to switch to the other enemy poke due to the first one nearly running out of PP. Soak allows it to hit ghost types. Moody adds more boosts which are passed to the next Pokémon.

<Japanese name> - Smeargle @ Leppa Berry
[Technician]
- Icicle Spear
- Entrainment
- Recycle
- Baton Pass

This or the next Smeargle's job is to KO Pokémon and find out their ability using Entrainment (which is also useful for getting rid of Insomnia etc. before catching). Icicle Spear for hitting through Sturdy and types it matches well against, or Aerial Ace on the next Smeargle to hit through evasion and do better against other types.

Artacia - Smeargle @ Leppa Berry
[Own Tempo]
- Aerial Ace
- Entrainment
- Recycle
- Baton Pass

Farbeagle - Smeargle @ Silk Scarf
[Technician]
- Spore
- Hold Back
- Aerial Ace
- Soak

The catcher which I've been using during my playthrough, which will end the chain.

I also have a False Swipe Decidueye for Riolu and other fighting types that use Final Gambit, being immune to most of their moveset due to the ghost type. A Damp Parasect for catching exploding Pokémon is most likely the next Pokémon I will make.

If anyone needs help teaching Smeargle any move just ask. The only problem move was Baton Pass which required me to use wild Ditto to learn the move by transforming into one of my Pokémon (that only knew Baton Pass thanks to the move deleter) and then switch to Smeargle and sketch it.

My team of Smeargles is at levels 81, 68, 66, 66 and 51.

My Pickup team is at levels 56, 55, 52, 52, 51 and 39 (though I generally use 5 in the team plus Weavile for attacking).

I received a Destiny Knot via Pickup.
