I just got the Shiny Charm today and I already found myself a shiny Dragonair. It must be working!
Just finish the game with the Pokemon you like. Then after you finished the main game you can think about creating a strong team. Come back and ask again then^^
Just bought this game yesterday and have been playing around a bit. Just finished the trains school section. The last Pokémon game I played was Emerald on game boy advance. So with this one I actually want to take it seriously instead of just fumbling through it. What's some tips on building a strong team? I never gave it much thought before besides just catching random Pokémon and making them my team lol.
For now, just get a good mix of types and a wide range of attacks on each Pokémon. Play to your strengths and don't duplicate functionality too much - for example, if your Pokémon has higher Attack than Special Attack, use physical moves where possible, and don't have more than two Pokémon of the same type on your team or moves of the same type on any one Pokémon. Don't be afraid to replace Pokémon that aren't pulling their weight - the Exp. Share and experience scaling systems will catch them up to your level in no time. In fact, Exp. Share actually gives you too much experience, so if you don't want the game to be piss-easy then either turn it off or constantly rotate your team so your experience gets shared between more Pokémon.
Yeah, coming from Gen 3, this is what I did. It took a long time, but I got to try a lot of Pokemon I missed out on during the story when it can be more casual. It made it more fun for me. I wouldn't find it fun to be 20 levels overleveled with the same team from 1 hour in the game, sweeping everything.

Yes, once transfered they act as Gen VII Pokemon, you can use the move relearner to get moves from previous levels too.
Do Pokemon transfered from Generation I learn Generation VII moves? I was wondering if my Venomoth from Red can learn Quiver Dance by leveling up.
Had a blast for more than 170hrs with this. I hope the rumours about the stars version for Switch are true then I'd love to start a new game and play without the exp share.
Man I struggled through Yellow too, did not hold up well at all for me.
Man, I really need some willpower to finish my yellow VC version. I want to transfer those sweet HA mons but the game is just unplayable. FRLG is so much better.
I had planned running through a few older titles and working back up to S&M but Yellow stopped that in its tracks immediately.
