Few questions about the battle system if anyone knows:

  • When you do an Agile move, does that increase your turn priority by a certain flat amount? So, for example if I do one but it doesn't change the order of turns, could doing another one after then change the priority? As in, even if the order of turns doesn't change you still get a kind of invisible bump to priority that could alter the battle later on?
  • Do priority moves like Mach Punch now work in the same way as an Agile move (as in, do they both essentially do the same thing to the priority queue?)? And would the combination of the two be additive or multiplicative?
  • I'm assuming that multiple stat boosts don't stack anymore? As in, a second Bulk Up with an already active Bulk Up does nothing? The UI suggests this is the case as far as I can work out, but does anyone know any different? It's weird that you still get the animation and the notification of the boost.
  • When you switch out and in a pokemon, what happens to priority? Are we essentially playing (in traditional terms) on Switch battle mode instead of Set? And therefore your switch doesn't take a "turn" and a brand new priority order is calculated using the new pokemon's speed?
  • Probably related to the previous question, but I swear once one of my pokemon got knocked out when the opponent moved twice, and then my opponent again moved twice before my replacement pokemon could act once.. did I imagine this? Wtf?

Talk about choice paralyisis!

I actually managed my first EVER successful shiny hunt in all generations yesterday with what started as an Eevee outbreak, but randomly mutated into a Shinx one. So, I have the theory down. Just really can't decide which to go for, as the other 2 will disappear as soon as I go to any of the areas.

Is there a way to tell which of your Pokémons moves will be super effective against a Pokémon bridge you have started a fight? Before your front Pokémon comes out I mean. 
 

Also once you’ve attacked is there a way to check what actions you need to take to get your Pokédex research up. In a simple form for example whether I need to capture or kill the wee fucker?

I finished the main game, hooray!  (And did the post-credits story part too).  What a treat this was all in all.  Yes it’s kinda simplistic and no it’s not perfect but I enjoyed every minute.  Now I gotta complete me that Pokédex!

Only about 5 Pokemon left to get now. Pain that one of them only appears in distortions in one location, and it's taking ages for the distortions to form and then the pokemon isn't there when they do :(

Which Pokémon do you need?

Magnemite. Only appears in distortions in Cobalt Coastlands I believe.

 

Others are “normal” Sneasel (and its evo), Landorus, Enamorus and Spirittomb.

 

Oh, and Giratina and Arceus of course.

 

I think I’m stuck though, as I have all 20 wisps in Alablaster but it still says I have one missing. I’ve triple checked every location with a guide and I’ve definitely got them all :(

I’ve seen magnemite in loads of distortions.  I’m sure it’s not just been in the coastlands…

All the guides I’ve read only say there :(

 

Is there a way to force a distortion to form?

Maybe I just had loads when I was there :( 

 

Seems the advice is go to a zone and do as little as possible m.  Zone in, then do nothing, the game does a check every five minutes which is then a chance for a distortion.  I guess I would do a lot of farming mats - avoiding battles as battle time is different to real time.

That’s what I’ve been doing. Just got Spiritomb, so just three Pokémon left -Magnemite, Enamous and Arceus.

I completed the pokédex in this (except for the one you can only get if you have diamond/pearl), and did almost all the missions. I really enjoyed it even though it was a total grind and the rewards were all totally underwhelming. Which I guess is normal for a pokémon game. Also normal was that I devoured it and then suddenly and completely stopped playing. It was so good though.

I've just checked and I don't have any magnemites, it looks like I had enough trouble myself and had to evolve them to fill the pokédex.

Ok, realised I didn’t have Sheldon or Bastiodon so still need them, but I’ve now got only them, Emarous and Arceus left!

@Protocol PenguinThe final battle is difficult if you have the wrong or an underpowered team, but otherwise I would say it’s the best Pokémon game in years. 

It’s next on my play list, then. :D
 

(The final battle difficulty issue you mention  is fairly common in Pokémon anyway. The Elite Four battle in Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl was a sharp difficulty spike after a relatively unchallenging game, for example.)

Haven't played in a while but the final battle is definitely tough. I set myself a goal of trying to do it with no legendaries or pokemon over level 70. Long story short, I failed :) I reckon it might be possible though.
