A person who does both comics and runs and whatnot. Okay then.
I was going to guess a speed-boosting nature but I don't think every single Glalie would have a speed-boosting nature, so maybe your Typhlosion and Scyther have speed-reducing natures? Are there even natures in Legends Arceus?
There are natures in the game, and no, they don’t have speed lowering natures. I’m starting to think those snowballs were just hard coded to outspeed anything.

This Skarmory/Charizard fusion is very rare and tends to be quiet and shy until befriended. Also writes and is a huge fan of Smash Bros.
The awkward moment when you need to grind for the second section of the Wild Area because of the sudden level jump, but there aren't really any good areas to grind and rematchable trainers don't exist in SwSh...

Can probably do some Max Raids for EXP Candy in the first half of the Wild Area.

Whose idea was it to make you face Dexio/Sina on the second island? Whose idea was it to give them Espeon/Glaceon? You know, Eeveelutions with base Special Attack stats of 130? Whose idea was it to give them Confusion/Icy Wind?

Oh, but that's not the worst part for me. No, it's that I lost my starter because Espeon just so happened to get him confused, and with only 10 HP left, Torracat ended up killing himself. There was a 33% chance of this happening. In my Sun Nuzlocke so far, I hit myself multiple times, while the AI only hit itself once. I ended up having to sack Yungoos so I could switch Butterfree back in to finish the job. Then it leveled up and learned Silver Wind. I don't know if I could've avoided this mess if I leveled Butterfree up one more time before the fight, but boy, did I feel awful for a few minutes after that.

Between this and the endless cutscenes, Gen 7 is starting to feel more like a middle finger than a fun challenge.

Just wiped in a Yellow sixlocke where I have to bring in only as many Pokemon into a gym as the leader has. All because I got haxed by Gastly and Haunter in Sabrina's gym. Losing all three mons in one battle means it's a wipe even though I have two left in the box. I just wasted all that time I'm never getting back.
