  1. Clearing the cache on the Pokemon Home mobile app didn't work, incidentally. As I'd already linked his child Nintendo Account to Home, having entered a <13 age into Home, he's stuck unable to trade (until he hits a certain age, presumably). However, I just linked my daughter's Home to her child Nintendo Account by bullshitting the birthday on the Home app first (even though the Nintendo account has her actual age, I dunno) and that worked. So anyway, making a new child Nintendo account for my son and will unlink/link his Switch profile and then setup Home. This is entire thing is such a clusterfuck for parents. Why in god's name didn't all the account management go through Pokemon Trainer Account or something, which already has parent/child config. edit FFS.

    That, and I want the gold, silver and bronze thing. Narrowly missed a win? Sod it, I got a decent amount of xp from that race. Next. I digress.
  3. And a couple of fragments at 9:30pm, too. Update is out, my daughter tells me you need a wetsuit, which is a few hundred miles on the little ATM machine. I ordered it now so I can swim tomorrow.
  4. Had our very first meteor shower last night, whole family wished on loads. I didn't realize, but star fragments spawn on the beaches all morning. We all got wands, a bunch of furniture, and spare fragments out of it.

    I love it, but it's the height of nothing at all mattering. Not sure how to explain that. It's the continuous trajectory of the series though, so people must prefer it. I think I'll be going back to XSX Forza Motorsport.

    I'm not in the UK, but just had two of mine done. The red which came with it, and the pink from a set I bought. The repair centers were shut for the virus, but once they opened I very quickly got a UPS label. Once mailed, it only took a few days before I had them back. The paperwork said part replaced, so I'm not sure what they did. Put new sticks in? They feel new, like the purple and orange set I bought recently. Are 3rd party grips OK? I don't need one that charges, just something to literally hold them together. We went to do 4 player AC last night, and I realized I was one grip short. Seen a third party one for $10.

    I grabbed this recently, you'll want this sort of rated card for quick read speeds https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B073JYC4XM?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_image

    And the Switch that has a better battery, after a certain date. We'll figure it out.

    If I unlink my son's Nintendo account from the Switch profile, and link a different account instead, will his saves remain intact? The old account was created as a child account through mine online. But when we setup the Pokémon Home app on my old phone for him, I stupidily put his real birth date and that's locked him out of being able to trade, which is the half the point of Home. Wife made him a new nintendo account (like actual one, with his email) which I also need to link to the family account for online, and is what she used to get him signed into Home on his phone.
  10. Well, just FYI, don't put your kids' real age into the Home mobile app if you want to trade with them, I made that mistake and now have to change his Nintendo account to a new one on his Switch profile and get that added to the Online family group. Heaven forbid they let parents decide what kids can and can't do.

    Should probably wait to see how Microsoft actually position it. Maybe they'll wrap up One production quickly and point folks to a series S instead. It also gives people a cheaper buy in, given Spencer (I think) talked about payment schemes for the Series X recently. It probably also makes a good smaller TV purchase. I've got my old 42" 1080p in the bedroom, something which targets 4k (native or otherwise) is a waste. Useful for people without 55k UHDs in their bedroom. In the future, I assume we'll see a Series #, with more oomph, instead of a Pro/X moniker. This is all rather simple, but again conjecture until Microsoft get to announce the thing we're all confidently talking about.
  13. Just got my shiny Zeraora, didn't realize I couldn't catch it due to it being an event. Anyway, is this correct? To claim the free ore, I need the mobile app? The long code shows up there, and I entered it directly into Shield, but there's no other way to see you have it or claim it? Kinda weird. It obviously promotes use of the mobile app, but that's crap for kids who may be limited to just the Switch. I couldn't see any mention of the gift in Home on the Switch.
  14. Well, it may have resolved itself, I don't get on the Switch long enough these days to be sure I'll clear the top of the wilds and leave the bottom, and then see if they reset. I did just finish the game, completely forgot that I didn't catch Zamazenta!
  15. That didn't happen. I mean, it did, but then months back I started really powering through them and got stuck on one final, 5 star gigantimax snorlax. Fast forward the DLC, and that one raid is still there. It was only when I went online I managed to beat it (though, weirdly, it changed to a different Pokémon) and have them reset. Anyway, didn't realize this deal was on, I transferred a Tyranitar to Home for my lad to receive in Sword. That was enough to get this Zeraora.
