It's amazing to think that on February 14th, we will be having our very own Tenth Anniversary of this site! When Nick, Wymsy and Jeff created this site, they created something amazing that brought so many people together. Not only have we shared a love of Pokémon and created many interesting and new novelties as well as introduced so many innovative aspects to the site from where it began, it's also led to meeting friends, new-found family, and, for some of us, the loves of our lives.




When we realised it was going to be the tenth anniversary, we thought we had to do something big to celebrate with all of you.

Starting on the 4th until the 14th, hatching red, white, and pink Pokémon* will earn coins! What you can earn with these coins will be revealed on the 14th.

But! that's not all we're doing, we're going to have a surprise for you for ten days leading up to and including February 14th!

We won't tell you what these surprises are, but we will give you a few hints!

The Tenth Anniversary is traditionally celebrated with gifts of Tin.

Sometimes, you need to make sure you have SPACE in your heart for New Family.

The best thing about celebrating anniversaries is the Journey.

Sometimes the most important thing is just showing up and being there!



We're also replacing berries with candies earlier this year!

Hope you have all the fun!


* This is by the base Pokémon's dex color (on GPX) and not by the egg or an evolution's color (if different).

EVENT UPDATES:


Day 1: Our first gift to you is a new Exploration called Journey of the Mind! Enjoy!

Day 2: A VicTINi distribution!

Day 3: a Pink Caterpie distribution

Day 4: A GiraTINa distribution

Day 5: Valentacool distribution

Day 6: Shiny LitTEN distribution

Day 7: Ten Shiny Trinket Chest distribution

Day 8: Honey Giftbag distribution

Day 9: Blacephalon distribution

Day 10: A new Exploration! For Valentine's Day! Written and Drawn (aren't y'all lucky) by your beloved Darth Krytie.

Does that mean the EGGS need to be those colors? Or that the pokemon inside are those colors?

And also? It looks like you are implying that we might end up with a new friend if we "Don't Stop Believing." And do a lot of work Daily.

I first visited this website in June of 2009 on my first account, the same summer I played my first Pokemon game, Pokemon Diamond. A fledgling yet thriving experience, only on its feet for several months, GPXPlus proved yet another piece of my childhood, so much of which was spent on the Internet building a sense of who I was and what I enjoyed but also enjoying the simplicity of youth, that I have come in later years to hold an immense affectation for. This first era of my activity on GPX held its own sense of wonder - getting to see in real time novelties such as the Kanto Clones being released, seeing the involved roles and colorful personalities of administrators, moderators, and even members, and participating in an overwhelming, constant activity which seems like a dream now.

Though my activity dwindled around 2012, I always kept this website in my thoughts in some form, and there were many moments where I would log back into my old account, paw around, and consider opening up shop again. But I never truly acted upon this until last November - I created this account as a blank slate, not only because a blank slate satisfied me, but because I enjoyed the idea of ascribing the strength and clarity I've found in myself as a person to something entirely new. I've surpassed the goals I'd set on that old account with flying colors; I never expected I'd find myself in the top 200 so soon, and while I'm endlessly behind the curve, it's still my goal to do even better and be as active on this website as I can possibly be, no matter how my life changes from this point on.

In this second era of activity on this website I've found endless satisfaction in revisiting something that I once held dear in the halcyon days of childhood, and it feels good to touch upon what has made me feel happy in the past, even if it's something as ultimately inconsequential in the long span of my life as a video game on the Internet. No time spent having fun will ever be time wasted. Perhaps now this website is still in its twilight years, even after it passed through the danger of being shut down years ago, and it's doubtful that we'll ever see the activity this website enjoyed in its dawn. But I am glad to be here now, and I'm planning on sticking around until the lights go out.

It might seem over the top to write a big love letter such as this one. But that's what Valentine's Day, and any anniversary, is about, and few things bring me greater joy than writing about my appreciation for what makes my life richer.

I love you, GPXPlus.

It's probably whatever the color the 'dex says, regardless of what you think you see.

Like many others, I was also one that took a loooooong hiatus and came back recently. This website has brought me a lot of great times, inside jokes, and just all around fun to be had. Thank you everyone for making this an awesome experience and I look forward to more years to come here.

Happy ten year anniversary, GPX!

Oh, I wasn't hinting for an elaboration on the aforementioned clues. I was just speculating on them.

Hmmm, these hints.

>Gifts of Tin
As in...Tin Tower? Steel Types? A new Tin Machop novelty? Who knows?
>Space
Okay so I should stop obsessively collecting my shiny hunt eggs and get the ones i have in my party hatched asap. (Why did I have to be hunting Jang...)
>Journey
A new exploration or something to deal with one of the Walkers, I wager.
>Just showing up and being there!
