If it can be fixed than it needs to be
This product is very useful I enjoy using it but there is one thing that I believe will make Pokemon moving the most useful you can transfer Pokemon back and fourth easily the but you can’t transfer over times that are on the Pokemon let’s say I have a zacian it needs its rusted sword to change form but unfortunately the time gets put back into your bag in sword and when you transfer zacian over to shield it does not have its rusted sword this makes moving Pokemon with items impossible and I can understand if there was a software road block it just think it would be nice to see the problem addressed by the people that made the app but besides that I think the app is great in both mobile device and switch but please if you could talk about it that would be most informative also the most of the community seems to be really toxic there are a lot of troll trades that are asking for Pokemon at a lower level than are given for example a troll wants a level 60 zacian this is impossible to get zacian at level 60 because he comes at level 70 they make it so trades with actually good people are impossible all I ever see when searching for trades are trolls and take up the entire page and should not be allowed to do so so making a cap of leveling depending on the actual Pokémon so we don’t have trolls would be nice
Great! But needs one or two features
This game is great it has many features that I have always wanted for Pokémon sword and shield but it is lacking some, such as the feature on the GTS where there is a setting where it filters the Pokémon you are searching for four people asking for Pokémon that you have. This is an excellent feature and I am surprised it is not added in Pokémon HOME. Also it would be great if we had some sort of way to battle, maybe on the switch version it would be better than the mobile version but still nonetheless we need a way to battle, especially since on the news category it says battle as a category. Overall this is a great game but there is one more thing I would like to see in it. There should be more boxes in the basic plan of the version one box really isn’t going to help people who want to save money but like to play Pokémon, especially if they might be shiny hunters or they just need extra space in their boxes. Also, people should not be able to make a possible trades such as dittos with genders or legendary Pokémon with genders which there is no way that anybody can trade unless it is hacked. These trades generally annoy me because this is people just taunting others. I’d like to see your future that removes the capability of making any sort of impossible trade.
I love this app how it can transfer Pokémon to and from games and I think once it gets updated more it will just keep getting better. :3
Great, just a few issues
I’ve loved Pokémon ever since I could remember, but I’ve never had a chance to play a game until I got Sword. I loved it so much, and when I found out there was an app that could allow me to essentially trade for free, I was amazed. I got this app, and it’s been going great. However, there are just a few issues. First of all, it would be best if in the GTS you could only allow possible trades. I’ve been searching for a Zamazenta for a little over five months now, and all everyone wants are impossible to get, such as a level 51-60 Zacian, or a level 1-10 Poipole. That last one really ticks me off, because for every single Pokémon out there, someone wants a level 1-10 Poipole. Second, the whole can-store-from-Let’s-Go-but-not-go-back thing doesn’t make sense. I’m not a computer coding wizard, so I’m maybe just ignorant, but it’s still confusing. Last, and probably the most unimportant problem, is the premium plan. Don’t get me wrong, $16 a year is absolutely fantastic, but it’s the differences from the basic plan that really irk me. Only three Pokémon in the Wonder Box at a time? At least 6 would make it a lot better in my opinion, but now I’m just rambling. Overall, this is an amazing app I would recommend to every trainer out there, but fixing these few issues would make it a lot better. Thank you!
