You would think that, but Dark/Fighting is amazing offensive coverage. The double Fairy weakness is a drawback, sure, but overall I think Single Strike is better (though Rapid Strike definitely has its better matchups).

Also, both forms get a STAB priority move- Single Strike gets Sucker Punch.

It doesn’t really scale so much as have two sets of levels for trainers and wild Pokémon: one for before you become the champion, and one for after. That being said, the pre-champion stuff is clearly balanced around the notion that you go to the Isle of Armor as soon as it becomes available, so the plan to just Read more

So far the Chimchar line hasn’t been one of the Pokémon allowed to come to Sword & Shield, either as part of the initial release or as one of the Pokémon added with the first DLC release. There’s still another batch of Pokémon set to come back with Crown Tundra, but if the latest leaks are accurate the Gen 4 starters Read more

It’s also worth mentioning that Yorion, while not banned, is impossible to play as Companion in EDH; since its restriction requires your deck to be 20 cards over minimum and EDH doesn’t allow for oversized decks.

How can you not get that? What’s so incomprehensible about “I don’t know why anyone enjoyed this particular task”? It’s not the general excitement over new content itself I find baffling, it’s this one particular task which until today I never heard anyone do anything but complain about. When I saw it was missing in Read more

Looking at the video, it does show a SMB3-style level while discussing the possibility of bonus levels in your custom world. And there’s no “Super Mario World Style Only” tag on bottom like there is for some of the other specific style features. So my inclination is no, but it could be that the world map is Read more

Because I’d like to have a complete museum, and that’s a much less annoying process when it’s just fish, bugs, and fossils. Unless the museum upgrade itself is optional within the context of the update (which is possible, but unlikely), I’m now stuck with an awkwardly balanced museum. Read more

I realize this is an unpopular opinion among Animal Crossing veterans, but collecting art for the museum was obnoxious and I was glad it was gone in New Horizons. Overall this update looks great, and I love that they’re going to be supporting this game long-term, but I really wish paintings remained a relic of the Read more

I mean, I think that’s also a very distinct possibility.

My spoiler-free understanding of the change is that it does attempt to justify itself within the narrative. It’s enough that I’m thinking of giving FF7R a try, I was originally going to pass on it.

This invitation seems friendly and not at all laced in ulterior motive!

I’ve heard stories of the Pitfall in New Horizons, but have yet to find one myself. I think there’s supposed to be a DIY recipe for it, which could be slightly terrifying. Read more

Yes. Especially early-game, there’s a deliberate slow-drip. But the game works on a real-world clock, so each day things change- the items in the shops rotate, a handful of fossils spawn on the island, etc. There are also long-term calendar locks, as what fish and bugs spawn are dependent on the month (as well as time Read more

Kind of, yeah, though they’re called patterns in AC. A basic pattern is just a 32x32 pixel with a 16-color palette. The pattern can be hung on your wall, displayed as a portrait, turned into clothing, dropped on the ground, and in some cases be applied to furniture. You can also get advanced patterns, which are for Read more

I have a strip of land on my Animal Crossing island that really bothers me. On the north-east corner, there’s a single-tile wide path that goes behind the north side of the highest plateau. It is impossible to see the ground here, which means if a fossil were to spawn in that area I would have no idea. Read more

I’m going to be working from home for at least a couple of weeks, so we’ll see how that goes. My wife is also working from home for a bit, meaning we’re a little pushed for workable space. Hopefully we don’t overcrowd each other!

It’s a bit of a catch-22 though, isn’t it? Players in isolated areas are less likely to hit the level 40 requirement for submitting stops because they can’t play the game as regularly, due to the lack of stops. Read more

The 30-pack of incense for a single coin (which any player who has ever put anything in a gym should have) is the key here. In addition to doubling the length of time an incense lasts, they also made it so you no longer need to walk to get the most value out of it- people are reporting a consistent spawn per minute Read more
