It’s the Winter Solstice Today!

by PrincessPhoenix ~ December 21st, 2018

Winter is upon us, and it’s time for joy and celebration!

… or is it? A cloaked figure in Eastbourne City Gym seems to be very troubled. Perhaps you should go help him? After all, this is a time for kindness and generosity!

You’ll need to have obtained the badge from Eastbourne Gym first, and this cloaked figure will only be around until the end of Sunday 6th January 2019.

In addition, the following skins are available for the duration of the event:
– Man/Woman/Boy/Girl in Winter clothes
– Abomasnow
– Avalugg

If you are near the beginning of the event release, please allow approximately 20 minutes for the NPCs to update on your end.

Yay, Snow! (This is not an event announcement)

by PrincessPhoenix ~ December 20th, 2018

Some of the maps of Orden have been finally covered in a dusting of snow and select winter decorations! To view them properly it is recommended for you to clear your cache, or else the maps may still appear green or have layer display issues.

No Treats, Just Tricks!

by PrincessPhoenix ~ October 30th, 2018

Well.. maybe a treat or two as well. It is that time of year where the seasons are changing and people are itching to loot things and go on dangerous adventures! And what is better than gathering around and listening to ghost stories of Halloween before heading out on a journey of your own?

If you’re in the mood for some light entertainment and maybe a Rebirth Crystal or two, there is a person standing in the middle of Route 6 that is looking for your attention! Why is this person looking for you? Go and see for yourself, heh heh. If you are reading this at the start of the event, please allow approximately 20 minutes for the NPC to show up on your end.

This Halloween event will last for approximately 2 weeks, ending at the end of November 14, 2018 (server time). Have fun!

Edit: The following avatars will also be available to set during the event:
-Pikaplush of CharizardX
-Pikaplush of Magikarp
-Pikaplush of Mega Audino
-Pikaplush of Rayquaza
-Gengar
-Ghost
-Mummy
-Burglar

Additions to the Token Store

by PrincessPhoenix ~ October 22nd, 2018

Now that some time has passed for many to explore the new maps, the wild Pokemon on them can finally be obtained from the token store as well.

To obtain a Pokemon with tokens go to Pokemon > Pokedex then select the box stating “show purchasable Pokemon” before clicking on the search button to see all of the currently available ones.

Info about the Server Downtime

by PrincessPhoenix ~ October 13th, 2018

The game was down for approximately 8 hours because one or more of the automated server processes bugged out and eventually resulted in the servers going offline. In addition the developers were asleep for most of those hours (time zones) and so they were unaware of the situation until they woke up. Chat server should be back up soon!

There were no updates or maintenance done during the downtime.

The Princess and the Karp

by PrincessPhoenix ~ October 9th, 2018

It’s that time of year again- the birthday of a particular staff member who adores Magikarp! If you’re not familiar with the staff of the game, don’t worry she doesn’t talk much anyway. But, there is an NPC with her likeness that is searching for that perfect gift Pokemon.

If you’re in a generous mood and want to help out, that NPC will be floating around Route 4 for approximately 48 hours, disappearing at the end of October 11, server time. (To check for server time you can use /time in the Global Chat).

If you were on Route 4 at any point before this blog post, please allow approximately 20 minutes for the NPCs to update on the map.

Masters Tournament

by PrincessPhoenix ~ October 5th, 2018

The Masters Tournament (for levels 81-100) is now up and running! It is located in Grayveiw City.

A huge thank you to Sharks12 for helping to set it up!

What happened to the storyline update?

by PrincessPhoenix ~ October 4th, 2018

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? There have been many updates on the developer-side over the months, but they were posted to the announcement forum rather than here. Smaller updates will be returning to this blog after this, so not to worry!

This is one of the larger updates everyone has been waiting for- the continuation of the storyline! What’s in store? What happened to everyone? Are there new Pokemon in the wild? Will events continue after this? I’m going to leave that for you to find out on your own… but Nexus sums it up quite nicely- “Things are going to be heating up in the Orden region! This storyline update encourages you to explore all corners of Orden, both old and new, to discover the many secrets of the region.”

You can start this next chapter by speaking to the guard at Route 19. If you can’t see the person yet, the NPCs may not have finished updating on your end.  Have fun!

One day I will defeat the power of Helix.

Note: Some players may want to figure everything out on their own, so please be respectful and refrain from spamming too much spoilers in all of the chats.

Dedicated Auctions Page

by PrincessPhoenix ~ February 25th, 2018

Hi everyone, courtesy of Sharks12, there is now a page in game that is dedicated to auctions! Now you can run a proper auction with bidding and auto-rewarding of the winning bid to cut out the hassle of fake auctions, fake bids or trying to organize everything in the trades channel.

You can put up to 3 Pokemon up for auction at a time and set each auction to last from a minimum of 15 minutes to a maximum of 72 hours.

Some things to note about auctions:

  1. Once you put up a Pokemon for auction, you can only cancel it if no one bid on it yet. If someone bids the auction will remain until the time expires.
  2. Once you place a bid, you can’t withdraw it. Your bid money will be returned to you if the auction is over and you didn’t win the auction, so please only bid on Pokemon you are serious about winning.
  3. The auction time is set in decimals, so 15 minutes would be 0.25, 30 minutes is 0.5 etc.

Have fun, and thanks Sharks12!

 

From sharks12: Thanks to the staff who have helped rigorously  test it over a long time!

Valentines Day Event

by PrincessPhoenix ~ February 5th, 2018

Hi everyone, the Valentines day event is now here and you too can participate in the festival of love and item hoarding! Unfortunately some shady characters have taken this too far and begun smuggling in Pokemon for Valentines profits.

An officer in the Oldpine Police station is looking for strong trainers who can help assist them in cracking down those who are taking illegal advantage of the Valentines rush. If you help him, who knows, you may befriend some of the lovely Pokemon for yourself!

With extra arrows for convenience since people have trouble finding start NPCs!

This event will last for 2 weeks, ending on February 19, 2018 (server time). Have fun!
