This means that the persistent online connectivity of X/Y, which made them seem such social games, and which made battling and trading with others so easy, is now replaced by the need to launch the Player Plaza, wrestle with its obtuse menus and UI, go online, try to figure out how to find your friends (or randoms), and then engage with them. It’s a dramatic step back, and we cannot understand why Game Freak would do such a thing

    I mean, we have the GTS, but seriously Pokémon ?
    I only things I hate about the Festival Plaza are the lack access in the PC and updating your Guest List over and over to find a friend. Other than that, it's really fun to hang out in the Plaza. At least I don't have to wait a long time to save due to Game Sync.

    Default Battle Royals

    I'm not sure if I'm alone in this but, something that bothers me is that there is no variation on the battle royal battle style. I wish it didn't end when all of someone's Pokemon got knocked out, or at least there was a variant in which that was the case. I mean it is super interesting metagame wise, against other players, but it just feels like a missed opportunity that there were no variations.

    It's probably made that way so that no one has to wait on everybody else.

    Probably been mentioned a ton at this point, but the lack of an in-game destiny knot kinda bugged me. I'm fine with getting battle points, but it would have been nice to start breeding things right away. Lack of buying Johto balls or the 4th gen evolution stones also is quite bothersome. I kinda understand why the stones were rare in the gen 4 games, but at this point, we should be able to buy them like any other stone. Granted, the cave in Pelago makes it somewhat easy, but it still is up to chance. Still can't really wrap my head around the Johto balls though. I understand that they're there to kinda show of Johto's influence on the cities, but then why is there not an importer? It could even be a once a week thing were a guy shows up and you can buy them. Only giving us one of each is kinda lame.

    I get Game Freak want to maintain the lore of the Johto balls being special hand-crafted Poke Balls but not having a means to get more of them (albeit with a limited number available per day/week to enforce their special value) is very annoying. It makes me reluctant to actually use them out of fear if the Pokémon breaks out, you lost the only Johto ball in your save file.

    You can try your luck with Pick Up. The odds are low but it's something if you don't want to wait until the end game to get a Destiny Knot.

    I kinda feel bad for all the people looking for a Destiny Knot. I had an Alolan Meowth on my team for a while and it picked it up at some point before evolving. I didn't even notice when I got it, I just saw that I had it in my bag already and thought I got it from an NPC...

    I tried the Pickup method by having an army of Lillipups in my team but no luck (I have plenty of Prism Scales though). It forced me to challenge the Battle Tree with Tapus, Ultra Beasts, and viable items I have (ex. Metronome Xurkitree, which I still use until now). I won the Single Battle challenge and I have the exact amount as the cost of the Destiny Knot.

    For sure, I don't think I'll be using them any time soon.

    As for the destiny knot, I've already gotten one from battle points, just was a shame they didn't give it to you based on how breeder friendly they made XYORAS

    The Festival Plaza was the perfect way to give out multiple of the Johto Balls so the fact they didn't do it is a huge disappointment. I'd love to be able to get multiple of them as there are so many Pokemon I want to use them on but I don't out of fear of wasting them. I did use my Level Ball on a Cutiefly though which I sort of regret but it was the only thing I could think of catching in that Ball at the time.

    I've just resorted to getting them off the GTS instead even though a lot of them go for horrendous offers. At least we can see what PokeBall everything is in now so we know what we're trading for.
