Back in my day we didn't have this newfangled Berry feeder. We fed berries by hand, and opened multiple tabs to mass-click. And summon items were hard to find. No explorations to help get them.

Damn, I sound like a Grumpy Old Lady.

Follow Isaac-kun to get to my party. I appreciate and try to return clickbacks! happy.gif

I remember back when Arceus thrasher (now Gambrinous Antiscian) was banned, but then unbanned when he posted his method of mass clicking. It was a lot more tedious than button-mashing the 1-5 keys, that's for sure.

Also, I remember how easily we missed treasure chests, Missingno, and Manaphy because they only stayed for one page.

EDIT: Oh yeah, back in my day, people actually cared about Slime Slugma.

Back in my day, there wasn't any sort of shop. You just had to hope you found the needed item for evolving a Pokemon. Also, there was only one Novelty.

I remember the huge drama about 1 clickers and people actually using their journals because you had to go to a user's profile to click their party (no Berry Clicker to massclick). I'm sure there's people who still use their journals obviously but journals back then were more widely read by others because it was right in your face clicking parties.

Oh man...I recently got back into this game after a long hiatus and..It's changed a lot!! I just wanted to make a thread to try and remember how the site ran when it was fairly new! I joined March 2009 which was a awhile ago so I am sure I am missing a few details to feel free to jump in!!

-There was no such thing as a berry feeder. You used linkclump and abused ctrl+tab to mass click and prayed your internet wouldn't crash when you opened up those separate tabs

-There were no explorations. Legendaries were given to random (active?) players and you prayed you were picked that month. Donators I thiiinnnk were given something automatically..?

-One of the main ways to get a novelty was to snipe it off of the shelter (and everyone and their dog wanted one GOOD LUCK)

-There was no Safari Zone. Pokemon and Eggs used to be in one place

-When One Clickers were very frowned upon (are they still?)

-When some people clicked back according to the percentage their own party was clicked

-Ditto was very, very, very hard to get. (didn't have an exploration you had to find one)

-When there wasn't an "one hour hatch" mechanism implemented yet (think perpetual +hatch)

-No pokechests, shinerecorder, vs seeker, underground, pass powers, shop, battles, trinkets, Pokewalker (BLESS THE POKEWALKER)

-I think at some point achievements were also new and not a part of the first year of the site?

The list can go on!! Feel free to add to the list if you can think of anything I missed, or correct something I didn't remember correctly. !

Mega kudos to the programmers, mods, and everyone involved with keeping this site on its feet and moving forward. Absolutely fantastic job, and I look forward to seeing what else you guys have planned!

I remember getting my first Darkrai this way. It was ridiculously exciting, because I love Darkrai!

This event system has made a come back though! The 2nd post of the community threads will always have the information every month.

No. With the way the site is now, it's hard to hold a grudge against anyone who one clicked you. Or to even one click at all. hah!

As Gryphaena said, there is already a similar topic, so I'm going to go ahead and merge this with the other one just because the other one hasn't gotten to the second page yet. Please feel free to continue the discussion. happy.gif Thanks for coming back and using the forums as well!

- Everyone's journal entry had a rant about how one-clickers were the spawn of the devil and/or the "I licked an X and now I'm Y" meme.
- To get a Ditto, you had to hang around the lab nearly 24/7 and hope that you were lucky enough to see one spawn and grab it before someone else did.
- There was a reminder from Professor Cypress to feed her party that was sometimes replaced by a sprite of her head on top of Chuck's body. It was accompanied by the message, "RAWR, I'M PROFESSOR BENCHPRESS! INTERACT WITH MY POKEMON OR I'LL INTERACT MY FIST WITH YOUR FACE!!!"
- All achievements you had were displayed with little icons. Nowadays you can only choose about 10 to show off. *old lady grumble*
- Legendary/novelty eggs were given out through events and you had to leave a slot open in your party if you were hoping to get one.

Where did that come from / how did it start? I saw it around when I first joined and I always wondered why it was there.

I personally have no idea. I think it just happened.

Some users liked to keep their favorite Pokémon in their parties 24/7. They were dressed up, had nicknames and long descriptions, and were level 100 from spending all the time in their owner's party.

A few people still do this, but the trend mostly died off because of the inconvenience of having one of your party slots semi-permanently occupied.

^ I still do this ^^ (See Snuffles the Mamoswine - she's been in my party since forever!)

Back in my day, I was called Captain Epic xD That changed when I eventually made Emmagurd my online name everywhere a couple of years ago.

Also, clicking had to be done in individual tabs. And you could see the progress of eggs (like physical appearance of a half hatched egg) in the shelter! When you summoned a legendary, it was literally a free-for-all! There was none of this pass power stuff or the rule where only you can see it for the first 5 mins. Literally anyone and everyone could grab it xD

That is cool! I think I can name some users who I remember did or are still doing this, and their respective Pokémon:

- Captain Epic's/Emmagurd's Snuffles the Mamoswine, as seen above
- Burichu's Chuu the Raichu
- m190049's Raider the Scizor
- Amberfunk's Nuadha the Shiny Mothim
- LuigiFan219's Judy the Magcargo
- [forgot their name]'s Heart Flame the Gardevoir
- [forgot their name]'s Amelia the Gardevoir
- Swizzle's Kai the Wartortle
- [forgot their name]'s Cassius the Shiny Wurmple
- Pokii's Pokii the Pokii and Gerda the Shiny Dragonair
- Spoovo The Pirate's Luna the Shiny Umbreon
- Eltoshen's Park Hyomin the Shiny Ninetales
- PeaceFrog777's Ocean Eyes the Shiny Corsola
- [forgot their name]'s [forgot their nickname] the Shiny Shinx

Any more?

I remember when the mobile site was first introduced and people used that to mass click.

also when getting ANY Legendary was prestigious, let alone a non-summonable one

Joined in '09, and I remember when BELDUM was difficult to find. Yeah, a friggin' Beldum. And everyone would craze over Dracowymsys, and man, opening 200+ tabs to click the berries by hand. Ugh, the amount of time I wasted doing that!
