    Hi! So, just a small mod I made to make Sword a little bit more interesting. If someone wants a Shield version I can make that too.

    - List of Changes -
    • More Pokemon Variety: Added about two to three Pokemon to every route and cave for better team building early in the game. Also added Shield exclusives and modified some encounter rates.
    • Catch-able Starter Pokemon: Both Kanto and Alola starters can be found in the wild area. Charmander can be caught on Route 2, Bulbasaur and Squirtle in Rolling Fields (only in some weather). All Alolan starters can be caught at the start of the Isle of Armor DLC (Fields of Honor).
    • Legendaries: All trade exclusive legendaries can be caught at the Lake of Outrage and Honeycalm Island with a 1% Encounter Rate. The legendary that can be caught will depend on the weather and only spawn in the overworld (No random grass encounters).
    • Harder difficulty: Exp. Gain is reduced to 60% (keeps you at equal level with random Trainers and about 1 to 2 levels below Gym Leader's Pokemon. Requires a little grind but raid battles are a thing). All Trainers + Gym Leaders have better AI. Trainer and Gym Pokemon remain unchanged.
    • Alternative Evolutions for Trade Pokemon: Pokemon that needed to be traded can now be evolved using other methods. The conditions are based on Dio Ventos' romhacks.
    To install, just place the folder in your SD card in atmosphere/contents/

    (I'll update the post with details on added pokemon, legendary encounters and alternative evolutions)
    (Also will probably bump up the encounter rate for legendaries a bit loool?)

    Enjoy!

    Id like a mod that lets me speed run 1 hit kill everything and bypass any grind. Bypass all the side quest crap and give me all the pokemon max level as soon as i catch them. Im an adult with no time to sit at a game for more than a hr at a time.

    Oh! This looks real nice! I'm definitely going to try this out!

    (If you do make a version for shield, that would be really nice too.)

    Sword and Shield definitely need 60 frames per second.

    Its nothing like a AAA game, it's a lame cashgrab thoroughly, fully throughout.
    I feel bad for the devs who actually want to make an epic modern Pokémon game.
    Pokémon is an abused brand.

    Thanks for making this, I've tried Pokemon Sword but the game is too easy and so I got bored with it, hope this mod makes it fun

    Oh in that case you don't need a mod at all. Sword and Shield were practically made for you!

    I'm personally not a fan of this approach to the difficulty spike. I understand it is far faster than editing every trainer but I do feel like the challenge should be in the battles not the grind. (Still hoping that Item location/Wild Area hidden item manip is added to pkNX at some point.)

    Locked at 30 FPS my ass. It doesn't even manage 30 a lot of the time. And still it looks like an upres'd 3DS game. Game Freak need to get their shit together or employ someone who can actually make a decent 3D engine. There is just no excuse for it running so poorly when Super Mario Odyssey and many other games both look and run way better.
    RPGs are not for you then.

    Any chance you updating this for 1.3? Main concern is that freaking exp share.

    Keep up the good work!
