I thought of something fun we could do: share lists of our current playthrough teams in the various Pokémon games for Nintendo Switch.

EDIT: Just thought I’d post an updated list of parties in my current playthroughs. Happy

@NintendoPuristDirect I have never played a Pokemon game before, which Switch game in the series would be a good starting point for a newcomer? study

@Inoue79 Of the ones currently available, I definitely recommend either ”Let’s Go, Pikachu!” or ”Let’s Go, Eevee!” to first-time players. The gameplay is significantly more streamlined than other main series titles, and the story is a retelling of the one from the original Game Boy games, not to mention the endearing and heartwarming bond that develops between the player and their adorable partner Pikachu or Eevee.

Once you’ve gotten familiar with the base mechanics, there’s hours of content to be enjoyed in Sword or Shield; alternatively, if you’d like to delve into another classic gem from the franchise’s history, then Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl are amazing recreations of the very first games to be originally released on Nintendo DS.

Oh, and The Pokémon Company recently revealed the newest upcoming versions, Scarlet and Violet, to be released later this year (most likely November), the first fully open world games in the core series, and set in a new region based on Spain and Portugal. They’re sure to be a treat. Clefairy

@Neptune Yeah! A Tentacruel I nicknamed "Chaos," who I caught in LGE and transferred to Sword via Pokémon HOME. All 18 party members in that version are named after Sonic the Hedgehog series characters, as are the members of my custom team as a Flying-type Gym Leader (feel free to challenge me for a Flying Badge; this is an open invite for all forumers, by the way Wink )

As for my party in BD, I named them after planets in the Star Fox series' Lylat System. All of them (except my partner Chimchar, Solar) are Pokémon I hatched and imported from Sword via HOME, because that 1.5% boost in Exp. Points is invaluable in a Sinnoh-based playthrough. Pikachu

Updated the first post with my teams in PLA and Violet. I’m kinda glad my human characters in all three Generation 8 versions have their own mini-name theme (all have “Ar-“ as the first syllable, with Arthur in Sword, Arwyn in BD, and Aric in PLA), though my avatar in Pokémon Violet breaks that pattern, since his name is “Vido”… which is fine, since it’s the start of a whole new generation. victory

Oh, and my Pokémon in PLA continue the video game nickname theme started in Sword, with each party member named after a race or tribe found in the Zelda series (except my Rock-type “Gym” team, who are named after creatures and sub-bosses).

Ooh, and I settled on a theme of “spheres of the Solar System” for my parties in Violet, with my Pokémon for each story path having a unique sub-theme: Jupiter and its moons for Victory Road, Saturn and its moons for Path of Legends, Uranus and its moons for Starfall Street, Neptune and its moons for my Fighting-type Gym team, and the inner planets (plus the Sun and Earth’s Moon) for my Little Crew… oh, and a Cyclizar named Jove, who’s the official stand-in for Jupiter (my Miraidon) in battles for the time being.

Updated my party lists in both Scarlet and Violet, now with their near-finalised rosters (still need to find half my Little Crew, plus one other member of my Battle Frontier-style roster, as well as a Hisuian Form who obviously can’t be added as of this post).

Oh, and as for nickname themes in each version…

LGE: Abbreviations of species’ names
Sword: Sonic the Hedgehog characters
BD: Star Fox characters, planets, and sectors
PLA: The Legend of Zelda races and monsters
Scarlet: Magic: The Gathering factions and planes
Violet: The Solar System and Yggdrasil
