Apologies if my ignorance on this is due to not paying attention…
But now that Giratina has been featured multiple times in the game, a simple chronological search of our storage can’t be enough to look only at our collection of just one form or the other. Trying to identify which of the new catches to keep would be a lot easier if I could filter the Origin Forme clutter from the search results. But how can I narrow my search to just one form or the other? The only way I can think of would require a HUGE string to list the date range for every event that featured it, and that’s so daunting that I don’t even want to test it to see if it would work.
With other Pokémon coming in multiple forms, it’s a question that could affect multiple mons…
Thanks, @bagguille . That was the only solution I could see. I was hoping for a way that could avoid the complexity of identifying best from date-sorted sets, plus the tediousness of typing in the search string with multiple date ranges.
That appears to segregate them neatly… mysteriously, though, since GO Hub’s db lists both forms as #487.
Is the difference between forms that permits SORT to distinguish them something that can be used by SEARCH to show just one form? If the game can sort by-number, is there a way to get it to DISPLAY the number?
Thanks for the info, guys. If that sort-by-number method is the only way to achieve what I’m seeking, I’ll have to make use of it. But it apparently uses some property other than number that remains hidden from user view, and of course is wholly undocumented. Yuck.
