      A few suggestions for shaving off a few extra minutes per grind:
      1) Catch Pokemon as close to their evolution level as possible. The Poco Path encounters can be caught guaranteed, yeah, but the examples you can find later on in the game are higher level and don't need as much EXP.
      On the flipside, a high levelled Pokemon who's well past evolution level will take more EXP than one a little closer, despite needing less *levels*. EXP scales nastily.
      2) Evolve three-stage evolutions as late as possible. This applies most for the psuedos like Dreepy and Larvitar, but when a Pokemon *can* evolve but hasn't, they get an ~1.2x EXP boost from battle (this was a mechanic introduced Gen 6 to little fanfare).
      3) Use EXP Candies to finish an evolution. SV uses EXP scaling, and low level Pokemon get more EXP than high level.
      Especially since a 24 hour challenge won't get Candies from Raid Dens, you may need to find yourself counting on these smaller optimisations to secure the extra edge.

      Hey John just to let you know you can catch about 70% of the poke Dex before going to the academy with the cliff skip. And completing the full Dex took me 91 hours over the course of 2 weeks because of work. So if you do a poc you can probably get this done in half that time. Huge warning you can do this but it will cost you goodra because there is no rain and all night time encounters also no miradon or koriadon for fast movement around paldea. The hardest encounters are probably going to be kingambit, slakoth, applin, and the 3 let's go pokemon.

    Taunt, healing pulse, false swipe, hypnosis Gallade is actually the best shiny hunter in pokemon too. Has been for a few gens now. Taunt stops stuff like memento and perish song, heal pulse stops self damaging moves and weather, and false swipe and hypnosis are self explanatory. Only thing he doesn't stop is explosion/self-destruct, so make sure to have a mon with damp. Also raise Kirlia to at least lvl 43 before evolving. Gallade doesn't learn heal pulse by level up and it isn't a tm. Kirlia learns it at 43 tho, so if you wait until then to evolve you can have it on your Gallade. And if you find a mon that has an ability that neutralizes other abilities like neutralizing gas and also explodes, like Galarian Weezing, buddy just use your master ball that boy's gonna blow

    • JanembaFreak

      @Umi Breloom has accuracy on its sleep move over Gallade, yes, but comes with some drawbacks. Can't put grass types to sleep for one, and misses out on almost all other utility catching moves. No taunt and no heal pulse. So, if a mon with, say, memento wakes up on you, it can kill itself without you being able to do anything about it. It does get rain dance/sunny day, so it can get rid of sandstorm chip damage, which is nice. But gallade also gets those moves, so it's not a leg up on gallade.
      Personally I don't really get how Breloom is a strictly better catching mon. I'd much rather take the lower accuracy on hypnosis to have no immunities to my sleep move and way more catching utility for shinies. In fact as far as spore users go, I'd say Parasect is explicitly better in generations he's in just because of Damp.
      So yeah, I highly disagree that Breloom is better for the purposes of shiny hunting, but if you like him more go ahead and use him instead of gallade. It's your game and your pokemon, use the ones you like

      Hidden Ability Parasect is the best damp mon btw. Only one that can learn false swipe. Also he gets spore which is great. I still prefer Gallade for my general hunting tho due to heal pulse and taunt helping my crippling anxiety. No mons currently in Scarlet/Violet can have damp and learn False Swipe

    I’m convinced that Applin is the reason encounter powers from food exist. I searched for one for just about as long as you before giving up and buying an “Encounter Power: Dragon” boosting food. Then suddenly it was if it was autumn and I was thrust into an apple orchard with all the Applin I started finding.

    It almost certainly took you more than 32 hours. Small Ant discovered that the in game time is calculated through frames, not real world time. He had been playing for 16 hours and the game only logged 14.5 hours due to the drops in framerate. Will be very interesting to see if this can be done in less than 24 hours though!

    The classroom performance scene is so weird because immediately after you're in the same class and their animations are fine. I really think the devs accidentally programmed the scene to think you're far away, thus reducing the framerate of their anims for optimization...even though you're right there.

    23:57 I did ! I never spoil myself how to evolve new Pokémon, I love to spend hours trying to find how, and up until now the only Pokémon I've never found how to evolve and had to spoil myself was Runerigus.
    But to be fair, Kingambit's evolution was really easy to find, you just had to read the Leader's Crest description and Bisharp's Pokédex description, those were HUGE clues.

      To be fair it happens a lot of the times, I get the evolution but I don't exactly know how I did it, a good example is Overqwil/Wyrdeer from PLA, I thought completing their dex pages was what is required, because they evolved soonish after I completed Hisuian Qwilfish and Stantler pages, but when I checked weeks after I realized you did not need to do all that lol

    I know this doesn't help John because he's already done it, but for anyone having problems finding Applin eat a meal with Encounter Power Dragon and search just outside of Medali. AFAIK Applin is the only dragon that can spawn in that area and the trees aren't all tagged up so you can see it pretty easily if it's in one

    Surprised no one mentioned this on stream, but there's a location for a static Applin spawn in East Province 2. At least I believe it's static. I've gone there 4 times and it's been there every time lol.
    Easiest way to describe how to get there is to go south from Zapapico and get on top of the mountain range. Jump over the river and keep going south, you'll run into a grove that has a static Terra Salandit. And in that grove is Applin. 😄

    actually you can also get False Swipe given to you by talking to the biology teacher at the academy, which is the one that checks up on your pokedex progress. i think its the very first reward for having seen 20 or 40 pokemon. which is literally at your reach in within 4 hours of gameplay or so depending on how much time you spend with the tutorials

    I good method for getting any rare pokemon to appear is to use an Encounter Sandwich. It's less helpful if there are same type pokemon to get in the way, but it still helps a bit and in the case of Applin, a dragon encounter boost would help immensely.

    Just looked at each starter line's exclusive move, and it looks to me like they have a favorite. Sound based fire type move that raises special attack afterwards but gets screwed over by sound proof, flash fire, and throat chop, a regular water move that raises your speed which is often the least useful stat, and a grass type move that never misses and always crits

    • TheMirksta
      TheMirksta 3 ай бұрын +3

      @Étourdie Having never miss is a trait that doesn't really matter ever in competitive though, the most common thing from the top of my head would be defog-ing a contrary pokemon giving it +1 evasion (commonly Serp in previous generations), for everything else 100% accuracy is good enough. Ignoring stats drops / boosts is nice on the flower trick too but it only really matters against bulk up atm as intimidate isn't really around much, flower trick is a good move don't get me wrong but the other two moves give completely unique things and flower trick is 'just' a slightly better EQ. Quaquaval is also has really strong STABs and SD so it's not super hard for him to 'get the ball rolling'.

    • Étourdie
      Étourdie 3 ай бұрын

      @TheMirksta "Effectively being 'only' a base 105 grass move" that ignores all attack/accuracy drops and all defense/evasion raises. Looking at the moves themselves, we've got sweep potential because you'll always do more damage next turn, sweep potential because it does lots of damage that can't be avoided even, and weaker surf. Besides, moxie only activates when you knock a Pokemon out, so I sure hope that you've got something else to use in order to actually get the ball rolling
      I wrote the first comment sheet looking at all of the exclusive moves just after evolving meowscarada, and I do now disagree with what I wrote. They have a clear least favorite move

    • TheMirksta
      TheMirksta 3 ай бұрын

      @Étourdie Nobody is claiming maxing out your speed is good, but being able to reliably boost speed while doing quite a lot of damage is very good for a sweeper with moxie.

      Who is the favourite then? All of the signature moves are extremely good, Meowscarada probably has the worst one, effectively being ''only'' a 105 Base damage grass move but even that one is very good.

    My catchmon was the T-Normal Scyther with a static spawn early on. No status move, but able to grab 150% damage on False Swipe and switch defensive type when it counts e.g against rock, and with Eviolite it could tank a lot of hits. And with Twave on so many mons, status was always an option if I needed it.

    14:51 Fun fact: during the Ice type gym challenge, it seems that the devs forgot to implement the shiny lock onto the ride pokemon, meaning you could get its shiny during the challenge, but it doesn't stay shiny (if it gets rolled) after the gym. And I think you got the shiny.

    The easiest way to get false swipe imo is to get your pokemon to level 15, get the first badge, go back to the start area, and capture a scyther. Every single one I caught had false swipe learned and it's not nearly as frail as a ralts

    For anyone looking for a super easy way to evolve the three 'walking' Pokémon. Fly to the front of the school and just run on Miraidon in a continuous circle (I followed the school logo on the floor by the gate) for around a minute with your Pokémon out of their balls. Then use a rare candy and BOOM all 3 can be evolved within 5 mins. Hope this helps someone :)

    Its by default not the most difficult to complete pokedex simply because it *is* possible to complete it without trading across 7 different generations and 3 different hardware systems. Also because you can complete it without time limited event exclusives being an issue. With all of those things in mind its literally the most easy to complete pokedex in any mainline pokemon game, including gen 1 - gen 1 had mew. Also because while things can have low spawn rates, none of them are as insane as munchlax in honey trees in diamond/pearl or so on.
