  1. I just want to add (speaking on my own personal opinion, not one of the dev team) that there's a very big difference between raising your own evasion and lowering your opponent's accuracy. You have to put in a hell of a lot more effort to counter-play evasion increases than accuracy decreases, and the solutions usually put you (the one trying to counterplay evasion increased abilities) at a disadvantage. The reasoning why Sand Veil can be problematic usually fall under the arguments against if everyone was hypothetically permitted to set up just a single Double Team. For evasion increases, you could try and chip away with never missing movies which are frankly very bad to be using on Garchomp, try to get something set up with Hone Claws or Coil (which is problematic if the Garchomp is already on the field in a sandstorm and has a sub), run Machamp with No Guard (who frankly gets countered by plenty of other common OU mon's, probably Garchomp himself too), or you could just pray that your ice beam is going to actually hit and that you're not going to lose this battle for missing on a very battle defining turn. For accuracy decreases, the counterplay is that you switch out and then it's done and over with. That's it. I'll say that Night Daze is maybe a little problematic (but nowhere near ban-worthy) since it is the strongest damaging move that can cause accuracy loss, but the move itself has a 5% chance of missing, and the accuracy loss isn't even guaranteed.

  3. Forgot to give you some credit on that. I've just been generally wanting to push this out as fast as possible since I know the community has been requesting this. Anyone is able to take my list and merge it into their own, I just prioritize a complete list getting out there, regardless who's doing it. Iirc, the healing sound is still used at every Sinnoh Pokemon center still as well, and I included some tracks like the Regi's, Frontier Brain, Underground, etc out of possibility that they could be included in the game in the future.
  4. I'm going to dump everything what I've found so far but this is unfinished, has spelling issues, and I can't confirm all the time what isn't and what is secondary tracks that don't even play in the game. A '-' in the list indicates an unimportant track. A genuine blank or skip means my work isn't finished. Please reply back with tracks that are wrong/that I am missing.

  6. I can understand there being a downward trend compared to how profitable trade chat could be, but this could also potentially be some sort of reverse-survivors bias. The game has a lot of people nowadays, and you may or may not be around at the right time for the "good" deals that are being snagged, leaving you with the less than ideal ones you described.
  7. I'm pretty sure you would be losing time in some cases by doing this with the current system just due to the swapping animation and having to deal with 5 Pokemon's attack animations. I'm pretty sure it's just better to be leading with 1 sweeper and then whatever amount of XP share'd Pokemon you want. It's maybe a different story if you're wanting to level up just this one Pokemon. For for bulk EVing, you probably don't want to do this.
  8. The only obtainable plates you can get are the untradable ones throughout the Sinnoh storyline.
  9. I will say for the concern on your #2, there are plenty of way to negate any items like Focus Sash's, Red Cards, Full Restores, etc and end a battle always within 3 turns. Spamming the correct combination of multi target moves can easily accomplish this to lessen the battle length.
  10. I'm not going to pretend like I am the most well versed in every Pokemon metagame as my knowledge throughout the years has pretty much just seeing what's going on with the Smogon metagame, seeing a few matches here and there, and moving on. I'm not even going to state my opinion if something should be done about Sand Veil or not, the only thing I kind of take issue with is people equating evasion RNG to most other forms of RNG in the game. I get it that Togekiss Para+Finch can be as impactful due to RNG, but its counters to deal with it can generalists for the meta as a whole.. Dealing with any sort of evasion increase (even if double team was hypothetically allowed in the meta) causes very one dimensional counters to be played against it just to deal with it. Especially when the benefactor is Garchomp, it usually just results in the scenario being in the Sand Stream Garchomp's favor anyway, a Pokemon that probably doesn't need anything else going well for it.
  11. Currently any of the pledge moves cannot be tutored.
  12. A team you make for the first time fighting the Elite 4 in Kanto usually requires vastly less resources compared to rematches, just due to how challenging the rematches can get for some players. For rematches, I'd suggest looking into the guide tavern to see what some people have cooked up for them. For the first time battle though, you can't go wrong with Starmie in Kanto. Starmie with a moveset of Surf, Thunderbolt, Psychic, and Ice Beam pretty much has an option against every Elite 4 trainer.
  13. Hi there, alongside leveling it up 1 level, it must be done during the night.
