Since the day this game was announced I knew who was the Trainer I wanted the most, regardless of the Pokémon she would get. Due to my experience from other gachas, mostly Fate Grand Order, I knew I needed to save as many gems as I could to get a chance of pulling at least one copy. I ended up spending a few gems on the road for my 2nd and 3rd priorities, Cynthia and Hilda, but always with a limit, since I wanted to try to get Leaf asap. Besides, this game’s method of exchanging a certain amount of stuff, name it Scout Points, was far more easier to achieve than other gacha’s, even if it might take some time.
In the end, I reached this day with over 75.3K gems, and this is the result to my main wish.
Now I’m sitting at 8,619 gems, but that’s because I also went to spend a few gems for Ethan and Cyndaquil once I was done with the main pool… and after 9K gems on him, I was lucky enough.
Now I’ve got every single Sync Pair that has been released so far but Caitlin and Lance, the latter whom I even thought of spending a few gems, but since Leaf took me 60K to make her Sync Move 5/5, I don’t regret it. Besides, I know he will be back and maybe I could give a try, though my next priorities would be Serena, a strong Fairy-type (Diantha?) and alternate Pokémon/suits for my favorites.
The fact that I decided to go 5/5 on Leaf is due to take full advantage of her Sync Move’s effect to increase up to five move gauges, which I found more worthy than, say, like getting 5/5 Cynthia who would mostly get a power boost, but I think it already hits strong and having no secondary effect doesn’t gave me much reason to go at it.
I’m very happy with what I have accomplished so far in this game that is making some kind of dreams of mine come true by watching my favorite trainers interact or at least teaming-up. It may have its technical and gameplay issues, but I think the developers are listening to the players and doing their best to make the experience even better, so I’ve got hopes on a bright future and I will keep supporting and enjoying the game until then.
