@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

*watching everyone argue* O^O

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:30 PM)

Well, my main point is that it will speed up the system migration so I have A) less system downtime because there are fewer files to transfer before the new system can be up and running and B) it reduces the risk of something going wrong during the system migration.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 May 2020 - 06:19 AM)

If your primary is getting cleaned up anyway cause you were backing stuff up, then yeah, no reason not to. But largely, it's not a necessary step.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 AM)

It's like you find out that there's a fire going to break out in the house you live in soon, so you find a new place, get your entire Transformers collection into safe storage, and now all that's left are the empty cabinets which you intend to move over to your new place soon. If the fire breaks out before then, sure, you'd need to get new cabinets, but your toys are already out of the danger zone.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:27 AM)

At this point, I'm in a "if the old system crashed before the new drive arrives, it will be slightly annoying, not a complete disaster" mood.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:26 AM)

I've mostly just backed up my personal files and stuff on the external hard drive. The existing Windows installment is supposed to be directly cloned to the new drive once it arrives.

@  Hg Dragon : (21 May 2020 - 01:44 AM)

Who else has ever been so out of it that you've gotten into the shower with your glasses on?

@  Echowarrior : (20 May 2020 - 11:08 PM)

Nope. We've been forced to go with Eclipse. It sucks, and I will continue to call the people in charge of the website fascists until they give me reason to do otherwise.

@  CORVUS : (20 May 2020 - 10:20 PM)

Yeah, I'm not a fan of the new layout either. Fortunately you can stay with the old one though.

@  Liege : (20 May 2020 - 08:57 PM)

So now it matches 90% of the content.

@  Trpodeca : (20 May 2020 - 05:18 PM)

Wow the new Deviantart layout is terrible.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 May 2020 - 10:39 AM)

Are you referring to cloning your drive to install into your computer as the replacement, or are you creating an image to restore from should something unforseen occur?

@  Nevermore : (20 May 2020 - 06:36 AM)

Backing up the data not necessary for running Windows on an external drive for safekeeping, trimming down the old drive to a bare minimum, then migrating the old drive to the new one.

@  Nevermore : (20 May 2020 - 06:35 AM)

Yes, but it will make direct migration faster, no?

People always think it's funny to put up commons and ask for rares. Or actually put up rares, but ask for impossible trades. I picked up quite a few legends back in Gen 5 when people asked for level 9 or lower Palkia, Dialga, or Giratina and forgot that those were legitimately available in HG/SS with a promo Arceus....

Things I like about Home:

Can search and go straight to a particular Pokémon's box using different criteria (sort by dex, name, move, ability, level, shiny)

Don't need actual game cartridge loaded since save data is on the console

Can tell at a glance what color Vivillon, Alcremie, shiny, etc. are

Gives stats of pokemon while browsing

GTS on mobile so I can trade while on the go


Things I don't like about Home:

No GTS on the console

Can have Home on iPhone OR iPad but not both



Overall, it's been pretty nice.

Shiny Formantis, my first shiny in Sun, and it only happened because I was collecting a few specimens for Home.

 

I do find the GTS annoying now as I did years ago but appreciate the option to turn off these requests for mythicals, I had hoped for a update to allow a few more Pokemon for transfer like the Kanto or Alola pokedex but I guess that would take some work.

So, uh, the fix here apparently is to delete the Home save file, weirdly enough. Had to go through the intro again, but all my Pokemon and Dex entries and everything were safe and sound. Not sure how that all works, but ok.

First for Sun, otherwise it's going into the shiny box and a nice surprise.

I once had a Ratatta in Crystal but that is long gone.

I still have event shinies from gen IV, Gyrados, two sets of legendary dogs and Pichu from the Spiky Eared Pichu event, I happened across a Minecco in Black, two Mime Jrs from horde battles in Y. Wingull, Electrike, Magnemite, Numel, Sandshrew and Speal from horde battles in Omega Ruby, Pikachu and Swablu by chaining, Linoone by chance, I soft resetted for Ho-Oh, Lugia, Cresslia, Regigas and Heatran in gen VI. Gen VII so far has been Quagsire, Medicham, Silograph, Yanmega, Altaria and 2 Lombres in Ultra Suns wormholes. A shiny Ratatta in Lets Go Pikachu.

I might start chaining in Sword.

 

Edit: I found out you can't use Kanto Slowpoke in Sword and Shield despite there being a Galar form available.

Continued annoyance with the GTS in Home. I don't know why it allows people to request certain Pokemon for trades if any normal instance of those Pokemon are locked from being traded. All I need to complete my Home National Dex currently is Zacian. I figured I'd offer a Mewtwo, Yevetal, or Cresselia. Been 3 days with no bites. And anytime I search for a Zacian they want a mythical or a Phione or Meltan that for some weird reason are trade locked from being traded. The Mythics I kinda get, even though some people have an abundance of certain ones now. But Phione and Meltan? Why? I get that Meltan is a ploy to get people to buy Let's Go P/E and continue to play Go, but as long as you have a Manaphy to breed, Phiones are nothing special.

I feel the same way, out of curiosity I looked up a few and can't believe what I just found, when you eliminate the mythicals there's usually none available but today I found two Zamazenta' listeds, one wanted a level 1-10 Dragapult with the other wanted a level 1-10 Polipole.

So I've had some good luck with Max Raid battles of late - got myself a Shiny Arcanine. My first one for Gen 8!

 

Also, small question. I recently got a non-Galarian Linoone in a Surprise Trade, and I'm wondering if I can breed it to get a non-Galarian Zigzagoon. Is that possible, or would I be wasting my time with the attempt?

So if you want naitive Kanto starters in Sword and Shield nows the time to hit up Max Raid Battles. Squirtle, Charmander, and Bulbasaur to catch as well as Mewtwo battles that sadly won't let you catch it but drops some serious loot if you do.

The Kanto Starters have a chance of dropping the EV reducing berries, Toxic Orb, Flame Orb and Life Orb while Mewtwo drops Ability Capsules and PP Max.. Also some Gmaxers out too.

 

 

Also our first confirmed Mythic is a Dark/Grass Monkey Zarude

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy Pokemon Day!

That Raid Mewtwo battle is intense. You gotta be in a group with perfect synch or else even if you're prepared you'll go down. I hope they do more of these in the future with other strong monsters.

Its definitely well prepared for its easily known counters. A fire move for steel and bug types and a fighting type move for Dark types. And since it starts with its shields up there is little chance you can hit it with a status move early on. I tried taking it on with my lv 91 Boltound and maxed dynamaxed turn one and it still one-shotted it before I could even try anything.
