    Those SBLs really love me; got Charmander in the mid-month ch!

    I really hope Silvally is not outclassed by the improvements to the mono type boost abilities after the heavy investment I put into it. It's rather unfair that if say, you want a Hoopa U with TC, swapping its ability means it starts with 0 skill points especially if you already gave it 70 for SL5 RT. Why can't the points for the old skill be carried over to the new skill regardless of whether or not the two skills are in the same group points wise?

    Nice to have RMLs for the other Ninetales and Darkrai, can't put any on Magearna since I still don't got it.

    Competitions, EBs, competitions, EBs; there's no rest and now more new main stages too.

    I think it's unfair having new stages while having no breaks from escalation battles a lot of times. Plus, I think they need to look into their fans a little more harder.

    Silvally will still be useful since it can get 75% on a 3 match. Much more feasible on high disruption stages.

    Does anyone have any tips for Poliwrath?

    Why look at the fans when they can look at their wallets.

    Yeah, whales are their clear target at this point. I mean they always have, but especially these days.

    A while ago, you commented how with each update Shuffle gets worse while FE Heroes gets better and it's really remarkable to compare the 2. Even though one is a strategy Gacha and the other is...a puzzle game in theory they both have the end goal of trying to get people to buy currency to get transient goods. But, even though it's making a lot of money per day, Heroes continues to make wonderful quality of life changes , take fan feedback, and add new stuff to assist. There's content clearly meant for advanced (/lucky) players and an assortment of content that even newcomers can access. Orbs (the currency) and assorted items are generalyl not in short supply for free players. THey've actively made grinding easier to do. Stamina Potions and Duel Crests (the other things you can buy with orbs) are in steep supply; Light Blessings are rarer but due to stamina changes they aren't that needed and no super difficult content has come out that neceessitates them. Indeed the content that would be easiest to wring orbs/blessings out of often forbid it. You now get one free pull on every new banner and it takes the place of the "5 orb" first pull so subsequent pulls on that set are cheaper.
    Did you know that the "starter support" stuff that Heroes ran a while back is actually a permanent thing for anyone who starts? No matter when someone starts, they'll be able to pull from the Ike/Ninian/Genny/Julia banner with its 5% 5* focus and 5% normal 5* rates. And get a free 4* Narcian. And I think maybe they still get to choose a free CYL hero?
    The most whale baiting thing on offer are the limited-time seasonal banners and even those have gotten an extension from 2 weeks to 1 month.

    Contrast with like anything in shuffle, even within its first year. Content is annoying. You're STILL forced to grind on the same 2 stages forever. Constant waves of hard, frankly unfair content. Items are all at once: hard (relatively) to come by in bulk, take forever to actuall make use of (especially RMLs) once you do use them, and sometimes only very marginal improvements. Escalation Battles are constantly coming, they're super long, they get in the way of doing any sort of grinding for other things. Competitions are a disaster. Main Stages have been awful for a while but now are just START OUT as money sinks.


    Anyway

    I'm not sure what the buffs to the type combo abilities are, but I'm side-eyeing them hard. I mentioned earlier Silvally was key to S RAnking basuclin (with items because *throws arms in air* and I have an awful suspicion that will be a consistent thing moving forward: eat through huge HP totals by hoping you get lucky on combos in fixed move stages with a ton of disruptions that you should be spending your time on instead.

    Also an interesting set of new pokemon, huh? The autumn variants (hey a timely main stage addition), the boss is a legendary variant, just randomly throwing Victreebel in as a main stage after months, making shiny genesect as the ex stage. And without Disruption Buster? Considering that ability was in from the start (& only on...Porygon-Z?) I would have thought it was made for it honestly.

    Since they're actively dipping into alternates for this, that says to me they just do not want to put alolan pokemon in the main stages at all. This leaves their options very limited. Assuming the zygarde core/cell are going to be eventual events, and that he unowns stick to safari
    Wooper, Quagsire
    Castform sunny, rainy, overcast
    Primal Groudon, Primal Kyogre
    Speed Deoxys
    Torterra
    Empoleon
    Burmy-Sand & Wormadam-Sand
    Unfezant Female
    Deerling-Winter, Sawsbuck-Winter

    And then possibly Shiny Hawlucha, Shiny Charizard, Shiny Metagross, Shiny Xerneas &/or Shiny Yveltal.

    If you have it, a candied M-Diancie (with Mega Boost+) is great for getting rid of the barriers on the intial stage and those spawned by the disruptions. Otherwise go with BB+ Raikou and your best anti-Water Pokemon with a good clearing Mega that can evolve quickly.

    I have claimed Drapion, Yo-Kai Watch 2: Fleshy Souls and Fiora from Xenoblade Chronicles.

    Only good thing about timed stages is that you can move icons freely. I set up a 5-match with angrychu that hit for 9k damage and dang near two-shotted poliwrath. Caught it in a regular ball at 45%

    No one's posted it here, and I would really like to know what multiplier the combo skills were boosted to. I'm assuming x2?

    Also hyped that Darkrai can finally take RMLs. It's been long overdue.

    Just skip some of the escalations.

    I've completely ignored the last two escalations. They're coin sinks for pokemon I already have and the items they offer as prizes are getting more and more irrelevant. I'd rather save the coins and try to make some progress on the main stages.

    Anyone still remember any tips for S-ranking mega aggron? I threw everything and the kitchen sink at it and just managed to beat it

    For now, m-aggron is the farthest I'm going. Actually had to go back and catch aggron itself since it refused to be caught before. I have a lot of S-ranking to do. Only just unlocked yanmega by heaving the kitchen sink at tentacruel.

    To anyone who might get snappy about a "double post," it ain't my damn fault no one else has said anything for the last four days, so buzz off.

    what megas do you have?
    It's been a while, but I think I used all items with mega camerupt. I remember Mega Aggron being absolutely terrible and I barely beat the s rank.
    Alternatievly, I might have used a mega steelix strat, but that doesn't sound quite right.

    I have all of them up to m-aggron, plus m-aggron itself now. Have yet to begin Prasino Woods so I don't have m-gallade but that, m-venusaur, and m-blastoise are the ones I don't have (have to complete those damn mission cards to get their stones)
