Hey, love your playthrough journals, have you ever done one on Pokemon X or Y, if so, I can’t find it here, and are you planning on making one for Sword and Shield?
I did, but it’s part of the 700-odd posts that I haven’t yet re-filed into WordPress’ category system following my relocation from Tumblr. This link should work, though, assuming I gave all the posts the same tag at the time of writing: https://pokemaniacal.com/tag/xandy/?order=asc.
I’m probably not going to do a full narrative one for Sword and Shield, just because (even though they are fun) they take longer than I honestly think they’re worth. The one I did for Sun and Moon really started to drag and kept me from getting down to business on the Pokémon reviews, which was a pretty big contributing factor to why I’m still finishing up my generation VII articles now, and probably won’t have time for everything I still want to write. I’ll certainly write something for Sword and Shield, but it will probably be a much more pared-down “first impressions” sort of thing in the vein of what I did for Alpha Sapphire (you can find that here https://pokemaniacal.com/category/playthroughs/alpha-sapphire-playthrough-notes/?order=asc; Jim the Editor has just gone through these and jazzed them up with some new graphics for my team rosters, which is nice).
