I’m thinking about using an Egglocke to have a fixed set of six Pokemon. This way, I can just roam around the whole region and experience the plot without too many worries. I just came off what I call a “partylocke” in Sword where I bred six specific Pokemon and “locked them in” to my party on a fresh run. It was quite the interesting second playthrough, but could make for a nicer, more merciful first playthrough of Insurgence.
I came into this game expecting a challenge, but didn’t expect the old school EXP system to be in place. Funnily enough, I wished this was an option in the more modern games, and this was a harsh reminder as to why things changed. I want to experience the plot, but for once I don’t want to watch it on YouTube, and want to be there.
What would help me a lot, is having a familiar team mixed with new faces. I’m not going to go without that Delta Charizard, that’s for sure.
Is this an acceptable first full playthrough to you guys?
And if it is, is there a downside to having only six eggs on the file?
