I haven't tried trading them on the switch games due to only having the one console, but I know they can be traded on PoGo as I've done that between my accounts

Finally got around to getting Home.

Had to restart Sword as I didn’t really dynomax my Pokemon out at the start, so nearly finished both now

Yeah good. Finished both games now, Home was good for helping fill the Pokédex!

I hope they bring back some of the past Pokemon. Looking forward to the Tundra one more as that one seems to have more content and my favourite Pokemon coming back.

I’m intrigued whether to know, whether we will have to have a whole new team for these expansions?

There's not really any real rush to get games if there's any reason you can't get them day one anyways. you haven't missed anything you can't get at all, and the trading ecosystem is annoingly filled with hacked Pokemon. Max Raids brings interesting rewards for catching certain Pokemon as well as certain Pokemon that requires link trading to evolve and even version exclusives, Which I think is nice if you don't have both games or are not in a hurry to play both.

I still don't have Shield yet. I'm probably going to save Shield for next year. It would be nice to have my own Zamazenta, but I'm focusing on competitive so I have more time to get on with other games too.

I suppose so, but it is always sad seeing hype die down for a game you're still eager to play

Yeah I agree with Kai.

To be honest, I was disappointed with Zamazenta. I mean Zacian's attack stats are just bonkers, but Zamazenta's defense I don't find that brilliant. Maybe that's just me?

Given that it's supposed to be the hero of the Shield, I thought its defenses should have been through the roof. Zacian is just overkill, especially against Rock, Ice or Fairy Pokemon Raids

Yeah I dunno. I suppose his defences are pretty high, but it has way more weaknesses than Zacian.

Oh yeah. Zacian is so overkill. Trying to catch him was a a nightmare if you didn’t use the master ball.
