Finished playing shield and it is my favorite traditional pokemon game. I haven't played arceus, but I'll try out my daughter's copy when I see her.

I also have about 1000 hours in shield. I love that game. I know it's crazy to say but I think the traditional formula for Pokemon games still is the best. I love scarlet/violet but there's something about the balance of traditional and open world for sw/sh that worked so well. The raid dens were perfect too.

Iíll put more time into shield later.

Right now, Iím playing Zelda Breath of Wild. I wonder if there is some overlap between the team that worked on that and Scarlet/Violet.

i can def see the resemblences
i am playing breath of the wild right now as well. tbh its not really my favorite, i find it a bit of a chore to play and last few nights have just played nothing... might just swtich back to violet i was really liking playing that every night before bed. i am just borrowing zelda though and feel obligated to beat it. i just beat the elephant dungeon and it was a pain in the ass to figure out.

I had to get a guide. Itís too hard and I wanted to get back to aimlessly wandering. I wandered forever before doing the objectives. Itís a fun world to trek.

Planning on jumping into the new Teal Mask DLC later tonight after work. I have very minimal expectations but I am excited to get to use some mons that I seemingly haven't used since my 3DS days and can shiny hunt easier than I had to back in the day. Shiny Ariados and Vikavolt both on the list, I want the new applin form too.

Yep, put a couple hours into it last night and having a lot of fun. I'm digging the story and the overall area it's set in and as I said in my previous post, seeing some gen 4-5 mons in the game is awesome.

Finally finished Shield's league. I really liked this game. Last game I played was Sun when it came out, finished it and was a little burnt out on Pokemon. Is there much of post-game stuff to do in SwSh?

The DLCís are fun for sure and the ability to hunt/shiny hunt a ton of legendaries in dynamax adventures is great. Shiny odds are pretty high too. If you liked shield Iíd say the DLCís are worth it.

Sounds great, I'll try the DLCs next . I really liked these games and the region and would love to play some more.

Ok, I looked it up and it seems that the Pokemon Sw/Sh Dlc isnt available for download anymore. Was it only available for a limited time or something? Kinda bummed rn.

Weird, they should still be available. If you're actually in the game and connected to the internet there should be a pop up for "Expansion Pass" for the Crown Tundra & Aisle of Armor. It's obviously been a while since I purchased them. It says they're still available in the Nintendo e-shop but not sure if you're in a different country or logged in under a different user than the one you got your sw/sh account on?

don't where I looked up that they're not available anymore, but good if they still are.
