Hau used his Z move to one-shot my Charjabug.

But we were double battling on the same team...

I was going to attack him for fun, but before I could use the move he killed me instead, lol.

Yesterday was my boyfriend's birthday. Gifted him a 2DS with Sun (I got Moon). He hasn't played a (proper) Pokémon game in years and is already addicted. Pokémon <3

I wish there was a reverse GTS where you could say to it, heres the Pokemon I want to trade, find me all the different Pokemon people are offering for it. That way you can pick the stuff that you think its worth without it sitting there forever.

So what are people's theories about what the ultra beasts actually are? What is ultra space? The game doesn't explain this thoroughly, so I thought it would be fun to speculate.

Here is a collection of facts we know about them:
- They're from another dimension called ultra space.
- Three of the ultra beasts strongly resemble some of the characters. Nihilego, Pheromosa, and Xurkitree respectively resemble Lillie, Lusamine, and Guzma. There is significant evidence to suggest this is intentional, which I can bring up if requested.
- The other ultra beasts don't seem resemble any known characters, but are still vaguely humanoid.
- Solgaleo, Lunala, and Necrozma have some connection with ultra beasts, but it's unclear if they actually are ultra beasts themselves. Some characters surmise that they are ultra beasts but it's never made definitive. Evidence they are ultra beasts: They can go into ultra space, and their base stats are all prime numbers (like the ultra beasts). Evidence they're not: They're not humanoid like the ultra beasts, they don't have the energy aura of ultra beasts (so aether foundation doesn't detect them as ultra beasts and they don't have the ability beast boost), and they have higher base stat totals than the ultra beasts.
- Some ultra beasts existed long in the past, but Nihilego, Pheromosa, and Xurkitree are based on modern people. This suggests that these ultra beasts were born or created recently.
- Solgaleo and Lunala are able to manipulate ultra space (can make their own wormholes). But ultra beasts are known to not be able to manipulate ultra space (can't make their own wormholes). It's said that after they fall to earth, they chase after humans who have been to ultra space because they hope it will lead them back home. So we know they're trying (and failing) to go back home, showing they can't just make their own wormholes.
- Solgaleo, Lunala, and Necrozma are all partially psychic type.

After considering this evidence, my personal theory is:
Ultra beasts and ultra space are created by Solgaleo and Lunala. Solgaleo and Lunala base them off them off the minds of the people they know. This explains why Solgaleo and Lunala are psychic type, why the ultra beasts are based off people, and why Solgaleo and Lunala can manipulate ultra space but the ultra beasts can't.

As for Necrozma idk. Could either be like Solgaleo and Lunala or could be an ancient ultra beast.

My first run through Super Singles battle Tree I got 56 wins easily. Now, I'm struggling to reach 30 with the same team. I can't complain too much when I'm getting a steady supply of of PP Ups though.

I'm 206 pokémon on my living dex journey. I'm having a blast... I'll meet a friend next week and we are going to evolve all we can by trading. It's like being a kid all over again.

Out of curiosity, what team are you running right now?
Mimikyu @ Lum Berry
Adamant

- Play Rough
- Shadow Claw
- Shadow Sneak
- Swords Dance

Salazzle @ Poisinium Z
Naive

- Sludge Bomb
- Flamethrower
- Dragon Pulse
- Nasty Plot

Primarina @ Choice Specs
Modest

- Hydro Pump
- Moonblast
- Energy Ball
- Ice Beam

The Primarina is the obvious weak link, but I don't have anything to replace it with yet. I should probably put a Focus Sash on Salazzle too.

What am I supposed to do with duplicate ultra beasts? I have two Buzzwoles and Xurkitrees.
Trade them on the GTS for the version exclusives from the other game.

Annoyingly I swapped my spare Buzzwole for a Pheremosa, but nobody will give me a Celesteela for my Kartana. I should have looked to see which were equivalent value, I didn't realise I was conning myself. I've tried putting all sorts up for trade but can't get one now. I'm trying to get a living Alola Dex to supplement my 100% complete 001-721 dex in the bank so I'm not gonna trade my last Buzzwole away.

Might need to start trading my shinies from the bank for stuff once it updates.

Well, caught my Timid Necrozma with a Premier Ball by accident... got frustrated after a bunch of wasted Beast/Ultra Balls so I threw my last Premier and got it.

Wooo, OT2!

Hmm since I don't have a Scrappy Pangoro yet, the Sandygast chaining can wait. Guess I'll chain Cottonee for the time being. Or do I want to chain Mudbray? Roggenrola doesn't sound too bad either...

I have to say, I'm pretty unhappy with battle tree. It's a worse Battle Maison. No triple, no rotation battles. One upside is the scout feature. Otherwise it's Battle Maison all over again. Game Freak, I can't keep playing the same mode 3 games in a row.

Is it too hard to add a team preview so we're not bent over by rng team comps? If you're seriously going for a streak, you have to devise a foolproof safe team. You can't pick the Pokémon you want. This has always been a problem with Maison, but after 3 games in a row, it's unacceptable.

Pokémon Stadium had 3v3 singles where you brought 6 and team preview allowed you to choose 3. Vastly superior back in 1999.

Eh, at least it is more fair since now they can use Megas and Z-moves; still a step up.
How does it feel to be so wrong?

People should stop referencing data that makes me feel uncomfortable because games get ported to platforms I don't like

Hau isn't putting up with your shit.

I was surprised with how strong he got by the end, I had 2 underleveled pokemon who were of no help and trying to swap them out to gain exp (I turned off exp all) lost me one of my pokemon.

But then I took out the ground horse pokemon whose name I totally forgot because I immediately named it Clinton. Needless to say stamina just feels straight up broken in the campaign.

Clinton is right now soloing 3/ 4 of the elite 4 while still being underleveled lmao.
