I like the new setup, but am a bit disappointed that the coins will reset every event. I don't see a problem with someone saving up for a year (or two, or more) to get one of the high-end prizes?

Otherwise this promises to be fun!


The prizes may always be different, and certain events may include brand new exclusive prizes (such as Spectrier from this event), so using your activity in an event from several months ago to immediately grab the brand new thing from this event just doesn't make sense to me.

Also the cost of recurring prizes may change, whether we're just trying to hone in on the right price, or if something about the event (duration, etc) makes tweaking the cost necessary.

If you think about the older style events, "currency" from those didn't rollover either, and users had to fight it out to be in the top ~10 of all users (for total amount earned) in order to win a top prize like the Sh. Legend Voucher Plus. And people would go several thousands of currency deep. So I think allowing everyone to purchase it now, at a much more attainable number, is already a big win.

Can we go beyond 1000 coins? I don't want to look at my coin counter at least before the 31st of October. I highly doubt I'll be getting that much, but still - I don't want to cap the amount and not be able to get more. Hypothetically more.

Yes -- and in fact, by sorting the Users list by the Coins statistic, you can see that some people have already gone beyond 1000!

Eh?! I've been saving up for the Sh. Legendary Voucher like my life depends on it, doing my best, as dedicated as can be, refreshing to see if my eggs are ready to hatch every free moment I've got, using up all my Shelter claims and then some over the weekend, but I'm not even among the Top 300! TT-TT Is 200 coins of effort really that paltry?
Well, I guess we wouldn't have that prize there if it was as impossible to get as I thought... I admire everyone's determination! It scares me a little. Good luck, folks!

EDIT 10/27: ACK. Must've sorted by the wrong statistic! I am actually within the Top 100! Still nowhere near my coin goal, but at least I have that going for me.

How do people manage to get so many coins? Clicking and collecting non-stop? The determination is truly scary=)

Yeah I have no idea how people do that. I'm gonna run out of shelter grabs. I wish in events that number didn't apply to eggs.

Interactions give you more Shelter Grabs

Bulbasaur, Forever Alone (click to show)


You see a robber in your house ready to steal all your stuff.
60% would silently call the police for help.
25% would let them go.
15% would grab the nearest weapon and beat the living daylights out of the robber.
Copy this into your sig if you are in that 15%

What's the ratio of egg clicks to shelter grabs?
And darn the site is laggy for the last real chance I have to grind.

All these years and I had no idea interactions gave you Shelter grabs! In retrospect, that explains those few times I had more grabs than I remembered, or "must have accidentally grabbed something" and "forgot" that I was trying to keep it at a multiple of six. Whoops!

But ouch, those two low multiplier days really shot me in the foot, and the current lag is making things harder. >.O I can't make 500-600 more coins in thirty-six hours. I'll be lucky to get a plain Shiny Voucher at all. A Legendary one is almost totally out of the question...

Oh well, there's always next event! I'm already looking forward to it! This has been fun! I even got a Shiny Sandygast for my troubles.

This thread from 2012 calculated it. I have no idea or inclination to test whether or not this has changed in the past 9 and a half years, but the short answer is that it takes 2943 interactions or 327 proper berry interactions, after which you will gain 1 Shelter grab per Shelter Pass you have purchased.

If that was tl:dr, 2943 interactions, prober berry clicks count ~9 times

The event actually goes through Nov. 5, not Halloween night. You've still got a good amount of time!

Is anyone else experiencing a huge issue with lag this weekend? I've been trying to do my best to click and hatch but it feels like the site can't keep up.

Yeah, the site's definitely running slow for me. I figure there's not much to do other than power through it.

In other news, I spy a suspicious new egg in my party~

The egg itself registers as uncommon, so I'm willing to bet once people start hatching theirs, they'll start breeding them and you'll be able to grab the offspring from the shelter.

Glad it's not just me then. I had decided to dedicate my entire weekend to the site, but despite doing so, I actually hatched less than I did last week, I suspect a good deal of that because of lag. Ah well.

I just noticed that morning! Hopefully the lag clears up. . . 200 in five days coins for a Novelty Voucher at least feels within reach! Got lucky there!
Alas, my lack of reading comprehension also means I missed the egg drop, but no harm done! I got one from the Shelter a couple hours after. :P

So, If I understood correctly in the November thread we now have the event until November 7! Happy coin collecting, everyone=)
