Things are going pretty well so far in the game. I’ve just about filled up the Pokedex for my version of the game and will need to come up with a way to catch the Violet exclusives. Maybe a Reddit community or something will be able to help there.
At the moment, I’ve been working on levelling up my Pokemon to 100. Still haven’t gotten the hang of stat training, though, which is hurting me in group play as I’m often the weakest link but it’s definitely getting better as I get more high level options. I may be able to use some items to raise the stats, I’ll have to look at the item boosts mechanics. I haven’t used them since Gen 1 😛
The event they just started the other day was incredibly easy! Of course, we had a good group. We had one player running a buffing Blissey and the rest of us were just dishing out the damage. Worked like a charm! Usually, it takes me longer than the first try to get the event Pokemon so I’m very pleased 🙂
