I got Shield. I just made it to the wild area for the first time. My team at the moment is just Grookey and Rookidee.

Can you choose the game language?

When you put the game in for the first time, it lets you select a language. It's got about a dozen different languages but I dind't pay attach to which languages it has.

I just arrived at the town that has the first gym. My team consists of Thwackey, Corvisquire, Carkol, and Linoone.

After hearing that, I'd very much like to try the game not only in Japanese, but also in Chinese and a host of other languages.

I myself still don't even have Switch, but it's a bit funny that eventhough the console isn't region-locked, you may be able to play our version in Japanese as well.

NEW FORUM SECTION

Whoaaaaaaaaaaa nelly!!

yes! our admins had something to do for a change that wasn't "lock down the 50,000,000 spam threads"... bless them for all they do lol.

Right now my doom squad is:
-Drednaw (who I want to spell out as Wanderd for some reason)
-Bewear
-Cinderace
-Whatever Yamper evolves into. He's a GOOD BOY
-Orbeetle
-Gengar

I'm thinking of swapping out Drednaw and Orbeetle for the Toxec and... okay I'll tag it as a spoiler the complete abomination of a fossil pokemon with a fish head and legs. he's so PERFECT

I got Shield, it's a lot of fun. I'm only at the second badge though, moving pretty slow.

I'm obsessed with my new BFFL Dracovish, lol. I just got the fifth badge and have been slooooowly making my way through the game (seems like it's possible to just blast through it but I'd rather not).

My current team is MY BOY DRACOVISH, Cinderace, Bewear, Boltund, Gengar, and Mordrem. It's a bit of a "darker" team than I usually have but I'm okay with this. Gengar's Poison typing helped with slaying Opal's team.

Beat the 6th Gym today. I really like the VS. gym leader music.

I beat the league and the post game story line. All that's left for me to do is evolve all my pokemon and maybe do the battle tower.

I don't normally name my pokemon but I decided to name my team this time. The names are as follows:

Rillaboom - Kong

Corviknight - Talon

Coalossal - Rocky

Toxtricity - Electro

Obstagoon - Lobo

Rapidash - Maverick

- Vaporeon (Water)
- Weavile (Ice/Dark)

Starting to see my team take shape. I like how easy it is to level Pokemon (too easy, arguably) because it means I'll try out new beasts that would otherwise just sit in the box for eternity.

My endgame team will probably have
Rillaboom
Alcremie
Sirfetch'd
Appletun
My Little Pony
Something else

And my competitive team will shuffle Rillaboom off, because I like Appletun better.

So, what was your team in the end?

I have Sword. Got it for Valentine's day, and I'm working on filling the Pokedex. The recent version exclusive event in the wild area was great for that, but still missing some.

Speaking of catching more Pokemon, I was also pretty bummed about Dexit, but I'm excited some of the old ones are coming back. I saw a list of them on the green site, but heard rumors that we might be getting more, especially with data miners supposedly finding the evo items for Magmar and the Porygon line. Fingers crossed!

The fossil pokemon are all wonderful abominations in this game. Especially given the fact that they're based on the old practice of British paleontologists mixing up dinosaur fossils.

Oh! I could probably help you with regional exclusives. LMK what you need and I'll put Ditto to work lol. :)

Mudsdale

I kept wanting to love Corviknight, but its lacking special defence really negated its impressive physical bulk.
