    I'm still leaning on Shield. I like the version exclusives of Shield better, and since this is the first time that I like both version Legendaries equally (and I barely ever even use Legendaries in my playthroughs to begin with), they will not be a factor in my final decision.

    I won't deny, giving up Zacian is a hard tradeoff to consider, because wolf + sword is 100% badass. My only thing with Zamazenta is that while looking cool as well, having your face be a shield... I dunno. A shield is meant to take the hits for you, but if your face is part of it, doesn't that kind of... well, defeat the purpose? :P

    Zacian and Zamazenta both look really cool, though. I can confidently say these are two legendaries that I can get behind.

    Well, considering that even real life has had several examples of animals whose main method of defense is armoring their their faces (see: every ceratopsian dinosaur), this clearly can't be that awful of a defense mechanism.

    Zamazenta's design is cool but not enough for me to trade off Zacian for it. And I can just have a friend breed my a ponyta so win win.

    Went with Sword. Swords are offensive and there’s a wolf, so why not?

    Why not?
    Dynamax is an awful gimmick, can't turn off the EXP share, Pokemon catch levels are gated, breeding is more redundant thanks to all the items. And more. xD

    Yeah, Dynamax is definitely not going to return in future games. It's fun for a little while, but it quickly gets stale.

    EXP share, yeah I don't know why they forced it. To me, it's not terrible, but I'm with you, I think it should be optional.

    As for Pokemon catch levels, I can kind of understand that, but the gates get dropped as you get more badges, so it works out. I think it's intended that you don't go nuts in the Wild Area and start working your way up toward catching level 50s and 60s when you first arrive.

    And for breeding, yeah, I haven't even bothered with that component, yet.
