    And done!
    After 107 hours of playtime I've completed the Pokédex in Shield.
    Once I've finished with my second run through Sword I'll probably take a break until Home (or some sort of patch) comes out.
    Enough time to replay ToV, FFXII and DQXI.

    My Teams:
    Sh: Rillaboom, Noctowl, Hitmonlee, Glalie, Alcremie, Toxtricity (amped)
    Sw1: Intelieon, Vespiquen, Pangoro, Vileplume, Coalossal, Gothitelle
    Sw2: Raboot, Dottler, Roserade, Bewear, Vanillite, Goldeen (all currently Lvl 28)

    Alright, game completed. Final team was Cinderace, Orbeetle, Runegrigus, Jellicent, Toxitricity, and Grimmsnarl. Took a few Max Revives, but I managed to beat Leon on the first try.

    In the post-game quest now and, boy oh boy is this tedious. Oh well. I've already got over half the Pokedex completed, so filling the rest out after this hopefully shouldn't be too bad.

    I had written a long post with my thoughts on every pokemon line, but it got lost to a random AP error message.

    So, instead I'll just make some random hot takes on the extremes:

    Favorite new design: Galarian Ponyta line. I like fairies, and Ponyta is probably one of the cutest fictional things I've ever seen. Rapidash is regal af, and it's my friend forever.
    Best new design: being objective is hard, but I'm willing to judge that either Corviknight or Centiskorch are just outright the best new pokemon designs. Hard to pick between these two. Grimmsnarl line is also an excellent new addition, but I can see it being more divisive.
    Most forgettable: Pincurchin
    I hate it: Coalossal. Rolycoly could have been something cooler and instead it looks like a fat marge simpson made of coal. Stonjourner is also dumb.

    Also, design-wise I'm having a hard time deciding whether Bug or Fighting got the best new pokemon. Leaning towards bug (Orbeetle, Centiskorch, Frosmoth are all excellent pokemon), but the combo of Falinks, Grapploct and Sirfecth'd is also formidable.

    I agree that Falinks, Grapploct and Sirfetch'd have great designs, but they are all pure fighting types, which is quite boring. Bug meanwhile has Bug/Psychic, Bug/Ice and Bug/Fire, and two of these combinations are completely new! So I'd say that bugs are the biggest winners this gen. (just like Gen 7 and 5)

    Bug just keeps producing the best designs each gen, and I feel that next gen we'll get bug/dragon and bug/dark considering how they are the ones that feel more "checkboxy", in the sense that is the ones that seem to be made to advance on the possible type combinations, as last gen we got two propper bug/water instead of surskit losing the combo, and bug/fairy, gen 6 seemed bad, but Vivillon was something super cool that made the GTS (sigh) interesting and made me evolve everything on it's line to check if I got a new one, and gen5 having like 6 different bug families was neat.

    Grimmsnarl is other one that needs the animations to trully shine, his hair armor is awesome/gross.

    Coalossal is ugly, and people don't read that WEIGHT BASED ATTACKS DON'T WORK AGAINST RAIDS FFS READ THE FUCKING TEXT make me particulary angry, but is egg mom this gen with the hatching abilities, and was just generally useful so I try to keep calm with this family.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    Graploct I have seen very very little, and I get that sirfetch is the knight of so many people's hearts, but:




    It was too big to be called a leek. Too big, too heavy, and too rough, it was more like a large hunk of vegetable.

    Sirfetch'd is an insteresting mix of imposing and goofy, but I have to admit the sheer badassery of Galarian Farfetch'd trumps it in my eyes. I don't know how they did it, but somehow a duck carrying a giant leak is one of the coolest things in the franchise.

    If I ignore Rillaboom's drumset (god damn it I hate that thing), and for that I just need to focus on its official artwork instead of the game model, it is easily my favorite starter line since Gen IV - the gen I think was perfect starter-wise.

    Raboot grew on me on I liked Cinderace since the start. Taking into account what seems to be the guidelines for starters in the recent generations, I think it is a very good line. I still don't like Scorbunny, though.

    My opinion on Drizzile and Inteleon didn't changed at all since they leaked, so it remained the only starter line I disliked this generation. I like Sobble, though.

    I warmed up to Zacian and Zamazenta a lot after my initial very negative reception. Their Hero of Many Battles form definitely helped giving them a lot of personality. But damn, those howls were getting annoying on the post-game chapter.
    I have literally no opinion whatsoever on Eternatus. But Poison type gets recognition so good, I guess.

    As for the regular lines, like I said Orbeetle is definitely my favorite Gen VIII pokémon. From its design to its animations (if you pause its Gigantamax attack animation at the right time, you can pretend he is disco dancing... (...)), I love everything about this little guy. Even though Blipbug is one of the few Galar designs I still dislike.

    Other favorites would be the entire Wooloo, Dreepy and Impidimp lines, both -vish fossils and Snom (I like Frosmoth too, but Snom just took the level of cuteness in Pokémon to a complete new level).

    Corviknight would probably get the "best new design", though. I think it is up there with Scizor, the so far indisputable best Pokémon design in my list.

    My team:
    Corviknight
    Intelleon
    Galarian Rapidash
    Boltund
    Sirfetch
    Obstagon.

    As you can see 3 out of 6 are galarian forms and I love corviknight design but wish Bolt has a third evolution like the luxray line.

    Team B:
    Orbettle
    Toxicity
    Gapploct
    Noivern
    Grimmsnarl
    Glaceon

    I love Glaceon and always have her around whenever I play a new game.

    Favorite designs that I'm not already running is Hatterene, Drednaw, Copperajah, Cramorant and SNOM.
    The coal line should be ashamed of itself.

    I like Rolycoaly bur that second evo's strange eyes creep me right the hell out. Coalossal's Gigantimax should have been its main final design.

    Something I've been wondering about, Galar is based on the UK and IIRC the UK is England (or Britain? are they the same country or different countries), Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. But a lot of stuff seems British and/or English, and according to Bulbapedia's Pokemon regions in relation to the real world page, all the cities and towns seem to be based off ones in England except for snowy mountains that could be Wales, although there is a disclaimer on the page that the information is fan speculation.

    I thought Hammerlocke sounded like a Scottish name and the Hammerlocke Hills have bagpipes in the music but apparently that's an England place too.

    I was wondering if there's any Irish or Scottish elements to the region, or is it just Britain/England and maybe a little Wales? I know Ireland and Scotland have a lot of sheep too but I mean something very specifically Irish or Scottish rather than something that's in them but also England. If there isn't, does that mean since the UK encompasses all those countries it's unlikely for there to be a region set in Ireland or Scotland in the future?

    Ireland isn't part of UK. It's Nothern Ireland that is. Which is like less than twenty percent of the island.

    And about Scotland, you have the female trainer's default outfit and you could say Sobble is solely based on the Loch Ness monster.

    Well, I'm gonna say I'm finally wrapped up with pokemon now. All that remains of my pokedex are the starters, region exclusives, and Rhyperior (not grinding out until that max raid battle shows up). Had a fun little game with myself where I tried filling out the pokedex with just females of everything (that can be). Had some great luck with the wild zone special spawns and I've just had to settle for a male Milotic, Trevenant, and Aromatise. At least I have female pre-evos waiting with those, but idk if/when I'll ever be able to meet up with a friend to local trade.

    I'll leave some random positive/negative points most prevalent to me in spoilers, so not to clutter the post.

    Spoiler:

    Positives
    -
    This game's group of rivals and supporting characters might be some of the best a pokemon game's ever had. Hop, Marnie, and Bede are great, fun characters and it's not their fault the terrible late game writing stops them from getting to be a great as they could've been.

    - The whole sport event they were going for with the league this time was really fun and well done. Just a shame that the last-game screw ups stopped it from being perfect.

    - I enjoyed running around the wild zone, checking for different spawns on different weathers, and getting to catch many pokemon I normally would've just evolved to get. Could've been better, but I'm happy with what we got.

    Negatives
    - As needs no explanation, the late-game plot decisions were just terrible. I was expecting the big historic natural disaster to be an impending event that Rose is just keeping a secret from everyone (to see what'll happen), using the league as a distraction. It really could've been a good "Entertainment media is good, but don't let it distract you from important issues." thing. Team Yell could've been find as just Piers' gym trainers going wild, or they could've also had a splinter faction that was working for Rose, but shoving them into the end to be good guys was just....lame. Piers should've had an earlier relevance as the "Leader that doesn't trust Rose" if they were gonna shove him into so much end-game and post-game stuff. It was just all... such a mess.

    - While the Sports League format was really fun, it also flops at the end. The Top 4 tournament to be gym challenger champ and then a top 8 tournament with the gym leaders to fight Leon were both too small and not enough fanfare and fun was put into it at the end. There's enough people there to make it just 1 top 16 tournament with you, the 8 leaders, Bede, Hop, Marnie, and 4 randos (or you could throw've thrown Oleana and/or Rose in too, for the story tournament). Also why the heck is the big hotel in the league town at the end also the only one with no rooms you can go to?

    - The Dark and Dragon gym challenges should've been flipped. The entire time doing the dark gym I was wondering why I wasn't doing double battles, and it would've worked better with Piers refusal to dynamax. Dragon guy made more sense to have some elite single-battle focused trainers to make you fight. Also they really screwed up the Dragon guy himself. He might as well be the ground gym leader. With all the new dragon types, you just gave him Flygon and the Steel Dragon, come on.

    - Everything terrible and stupid about the design of Max Raid battles could be solved by just giving an immediate option to skip or reset battles that you can't beat solo. I also would've appreciated a way to better manipulate what's gonna appear, like throwing multiple wishing stars to guarantee a 5 star raid.
