fo real though, was anyone actually surprised at that whole plot twist. As soon as I saw that thing when it first popped up I knew she was gonna end up going full PSO, and you never go full PSO. "Sorry sweetheart but your mommy's developed a terminal case of Dark Falz, gonna have to put her down"
Great game though, hell of a ride. Alolan formes are wonderful. Don't be mean to Exeggutor, the poor thing clearly needs more light.
I was becoming more and more aware that I had a gaping fairy-shaped hole in my roster and as I continued to beat trials and pick up crystals I was just waiting for that dragon-type shoe to drop. I caught a Mimikyu but didn't feel I could use it as spoopy birb starter is already a ghost type (LOVE Mimikyu though). I tried the little flower garland thing out for some time as its stats looked ok for special attacking, before accepting that it was never going to actually learn any useful fairy moves.
The other fairy types all seemed to have secondary types that would double up on my team's weaknesses, so I took the boring option of turning my freebie eevee into a sylveon. I have never liked sylveon much but desperate times call for desperate measures. I was still frantically trying to pump more levels into that thing as I headed into Vast Poni Canyon.
Despite being criminally underleveled it managed to solo the dragon trial, partly because as I subsequently found out they're quad-weak to fairy, but mostly because the dumbass ally kept boosting instead of just finishing Ninfia off when it was sitting at 2% health. Like if you had just cherry-tapped the ninfia you could have literally swept me you dumb lizard.
My team just after nailing Nightmare Moon with a dusk ball:
Banbadoro (giant clay horse)
So somehow I've ended up using three prior-generation mons despite all the exciting new stuff. Midori the (green) pelipper was an obvious pick since he's shiny uwu. Coil joined my team "temporarily" in the first town and just never left. And Sylveon was basically a hail-mary since I knew there must be dragon-types coming up, but I guess he might as well stay now.
I cannot get my head around the fact that I don't need to plan for HMs. I keep catching myself thinking stuff like "mustn't drop Banbadoro, he probably gets strength... wait..."
One team slot left. Hmm.
