Hopefully this luck continues.

Man, kinda surprised how dead this topic is.

Beat the main story. Overall found it more satisfying than S/M and I'm actually surprised how much was changed. It felt like each character's own arc wrapped up neatly.

I havent gotten too far, just cleared the first trial. It's reminded me how good Sun/Moon was because I still love the Alola region and its wacky everything.

my final team will have Decidueye and Golisopod, but I'm really unsure who else I'll end up using so right now im just enjoying using whatever I catch. Current team is a mess of Pokemon ive never really used before but caught because theyre cool to have so early in the game and just some other randos:

Inkay, Zorua, Magnemite, Ekans, Crabrawler, Dartrix.

Crabrawler solo'd the whole trial with Brick Break LOL
why does its evolution have to be so dang late ;_;

Im certainly looking forward to the new content but for now replaying the parts I know has still been fun

Imho, keep Zorua and Crabrawler. This is the perfect duo to cheese the *bleep* out of the fight with the main evil Pokemon (pretty obvious who it is, but spoilers), which is actually very tough if you're not prepared.

My final team was Primarina, Aegislash, Zoroark, electric Oricorio, Incineroar, and Crabominable.

Magnemite will destroy almost every totem pokemon (besides fire) for you if you want that.

Aside from Alolan forms and Zeraora, my living dex is now up to date thanks to Pokemon Emerald cloning glitches and everyone's thirst for Rayquaza.

Time to shiny hunt now.

Completed the main quest and the Rainbow Rocket episode.

I said this about the original SM and I'll say it now, it's nice to finally have some challenge in Pokemon for once. The trials, especially the electric one, required patience and strategy. You can't just over level your starter and clear the game. It is pretty similar to SM, but more streamlined and with better QoL. From the Aether Foundation onward the story takes new twists and turns, most of them appreciated, though as Gamefreak pointed out in his post, some stuff is missing, much to the detriment of the story.

The Rainbow Rocket story segment though is pure fan service. I had a lot of fun with it, even if the level jump is a bit crazy. My entire team was about Level 70 for the final battle and I walked away with only one Pokemon left standing, and he was poisoned with 2 HP remaining. It was great fun to see all the callbacks to the past.

All in all, if you liked SM, you'll like this. Whether that's worth $40 is up to you.

Now it's time to hunt UBs and Legendaries, and then transfer my living dex via Bank.

Oh yeah, Necrozma is no joke in this game. Never have I felt so out of my league in a Pokémon battle. As you should when up against a legendary like that.
