Tis the time to spam reoccurring questions that I keep forgetting to post
falalalala lala la la

Okay but seriously, have they ever said anything on why they changed Leafeon and Glaceon to evolve with the Leaf Stone and Ice Stone? If no, any speculations?

Idk maybe they understood that it was difficult to find a stone somwher in the region it's better to use evolution stones

Those with past Eevee experience wil recall that, in order to evolve them with with the Moss Rock or the Ice Rock respectively. Since these are items with little use, they're often really rare. So, in Pokémon Sword and Shield, they just removed them from the game.

So, since the mossy rock and icy rock have such little use besides this, they just removed it.

Why do you care if you are sniped? If your answer is better it will get more votes and BA, nothing to do with who answered first.
Most of the time actually, that isn't the case. I can say that from experience
I mean also it's just annoying lol
in this case the answers are similar, so the one who gets posted first gets ba. thats just kinda the db thing, and thats why sniping is a big thing
I don't want to upvote J, but his is better and a good answer, so I have to

Games have increasingly been targeted towards younger players, and they want the games to be easier.

Therefore, They would probably want the players to get their full teams. I understand that glaceon is weird, but it is at a frozen route. The leaf stone is in turrfield (or near). The fire stone is near motostoke. It seems like they are trying to correlate them. The typings are very similar too. So that is my theory.

i gotta BA J's but i'll give u an upvote sksksksksk i hope u get another one
