I agree with what Athrun says about... their appearance.  They are truly... like that. Embarrassed

I just finished the Eevee sub-quest.  Well.  That was... grim.


And now (16/12/2016) I think I've finished the game. Have no desire to complete the Battle Tree, and the top trainer you face prior to that seems to be... EV-trained maybe? And out of my reach unless I grind up. No real desire to do that, so I'll probably leave it as is. So it's back onto Megamix Remix 10 and Gurumin until I get Picross 3D 2 for Christmas.

Grand game though, a step in the right direction for the franchise. Thumbs Up!

Nuzlocke Zero is over.

Fun while it lasted - and I would do it again. Thumbs Up!

Aww, Zero. Sad to hear, but at least you can revive your favourite fallen heroes now. Thumbs Up!

As for my progress, I've been rattled through the second and third trials on Island 2.

Progress:

I'm glad somebody else struggled with that, I found it really tricky and I seemed to be the only one!  And you're not wrong about Trial 3...

Sorry to hear about the end to Zerolocke.  What's the new and refurbished team?

Oh, and Athrunton/anyone else who fancies contributing: big communal Pokémon music time period thingy at the start of January?

If he's EV trained I didn't notice.  Wink   Swept you know who with my Minior, the glorious Ginyu, fresh from claiming the Champion title!  Granted without Shell Smash and Cosmic Power I'd've been well and truly up the creek, but eh, that's what strategy is for!  

Speaking of strategy shout out to the game having fights with enough bite in them to actually reward bothering with strategy in the first place while also giving the player the tools to be strategic if they wish.  So many of the series locks any real strategic abilities behind the post-game grind.

Ouch about the loss Zero, that Totem was one of the tougher ones for sure.  At least it was fun!  And you made it far further than I did!

I'd be up for it.  Words of Radiance won't be hogging most of my spare time for much longer, then it's back to gaming and finishing that top ten list!


On the third trial, that one probably would've been tough.  


If I didn't have GOD HIMSELF incarnated as a tuna submarine on my side that is!

So out of curiosity as I've seen a few manage to find shinies at random intervals. Did anyone here find any? (I found a Lilliepup out of the blue)

I haven't, but now both Muss and my friend Jake have found two apiece; he may have been farming, though.

No shinies up to press. I don't expect to find any, either.

I might be wrong but I think they're more common in this game. Not had any random encounters myself but I did get a shiny Type:Null after A LOT of effort.

According to my housemate they are meant to be more rarer Eh?

I still really want a shiny Mimikyu but I still can't be bothered going through the "process" of getting one

Edit...

Cute, the game's pokemon centres have a birthday celebrations.  I'll admit I smiled a little even though I don't celebrate it.  

More importantly I've begun filling in the Pokedex.  Closing in on 50% in every island now.  Probably time I started tracking down the UB's and Tapu's!


ALSO, anyone know if they explain why the spotted dragon heck that Grimsley is in Alola? That covered in the post-game?

I am fast approaching the end of this game, and anticipating having a great deal to say.
Mostly positive!

Not yet, though I still have a fair whack to go. If I'm not at the end of the beginning, I'm certainly at the beginning of the end.

Review.
I'll properly go through this thread and reply to what the rest of you said but I wanted to write up my untainted thoughts first. Spoiler: I liked this videogame.

Now into the post-game! And also Mario. And probably back to Monster Hunter.

 Please just do everyone a favour Hau and go away.  I get the archetype they were going for with Hau, the problem is it's always a fine line between a amusing exuberant bag of fun and an irritating idiot.  
I wouldn't say I hated him, but had the likes of Gladion not existed and he been all the recurring rival we were given I would not have been impressed.

OMG you're bang on the money!

I wish I'd been a bit quicker so I could have chatted more as I played, but I generally found myself agreeing with Balla and Athrun about most bits of this game. I'm just starting to do some post-game stuff now and still really enjoying being in that world. Will start working on a music post soon as well Smile

He's got a catchy theme tune, which I can't like as much as I should because it's him it accompanies.

Psh, Gladion's theme was better.  Especially considering the slick covers it got, Hau'll never get jazz awesomeness like this


Oh, and it only took me over two hours and forty Beast Balls but I finally got myself a lovely level 12 Dragonair in a Beast Ball.  Hooray for spectacular wastes of time!


And that's the second shiny I've encountered while EV training. Not that I'm complaining, shiny Trumbeak-soon-to-be-Toucannon coming out a Beast Ball is bling overload! Love
