Hello everyone!

Rookie here! Back (hopefully) to the monthly updates both for the SWSH pre-poll and the winning theme of the previous pre-poll (which you can find over here)!

Edit: Gaj finished the infographic! And here it is:


Lactose Tolerant
Vanillite, Swirlix, Milcery

Satisfy your sweet tooth with endless creamy delights.

Amazing Infographic made by Gajeel Redfox!


This post WILL be edited in the near future with the post from Gaj (this time for realz! I promise!) and will also be edited because I have a "small" (lol) thread I'd like to share. So I hope you gus look forward to it as well!

Either way, I'd also like to emphasize that the next Pre-Polls will be made and posted once the prizes for the next coin event go up, in case you don't see the pre-poll popping up as soon as the next month update comes up!

So cool that we have so many contributors now that applications actually have to be closed! They do great work too - these Gmax sprites are fantastic.

I don't remember my first shiny on GPX... probably Ralts.

I have stumbled across my first GPX shiny in my PC but have forgotten again so can rejoice with the reminder next I cross paths.

ETA The first was a Buneary which has since happily evolved into a Lopunny.

Happy July everyone!

My first Shiny in a game was a silver Rapidash on Mount Silver happy.gif. I don't remember though if it happened in Pokémon Gold or Crystal.

I think my first was a Zigzagoon on Ruby... being a child I named him (and the next four...) "SHINY". You see, I had a creative spark as a kid. On GPX, I picked up a Ralts egg - the egg of my favorite Pokemon! - as part of my very first party, setting a goal for myself to one day get that which had eluded me. Turns out my very first Ralts egg was shiny, so lol, lmao.

Speaking of creative sparks, I'm quite pleased with the lovely volunteers on our team, and you all can look forward to even more good stuff. Seriously, there's so much stuff.

My first shiny was on Emerald, and it was a Wurmple. Now it's a Dustox, and I think it's in my Alpha Sapphire game. Made it back to Hoenn!

My first shiny on GPX was Ledyba. That was such a cute surprise to have happen to me when I was just collecting pokemon for the dex. I keep my PC boxes of shinies in the order I got them, so it's easy to keep track of which ones I got first lol.

And yeah, it's awesome contributing to the site! Still working on new things behind the scenes!

Welcome to July! I'm excited to hopefully fulfill the quest of hunting tasty frozen dairy treats both in person and on GPX this month!

Thank you SO much to everyone involved in putting together the Gigantamax event last month too! I had a great time with it!

I believe my first shiny was actually the Shiny Rapidash I have here on GPX - I'd never actually managed to find a shiny in a game at that point - He'll be 15 this December!

July already, how time flies...

Barely got all the shiny vouchers from last months coin event.

Still remember my first shiny on GPX+ like it was yesterday, it was Shiny Manaphy so kind of hard to forget. Hatched on Thanksgiving day almost 15 years ago.

Well, I didn’t get any but could get one voucher, though I have other rewards didn’t get since didn’t claim as many eggs like a lot of other people, due to lack of boxes/space, even if still got some I need to get... shakefist.gif

Anyway, only exploration I did before my break was Celebi and don’t have Jirachi, but probably doing the Gen 5 Legendaries for my 2 this month.

As for shinies… easy to remember, when I only got one on actual games. On HG/SS (got both, but pretty sure was on HG), I got a shiny Gloom outside of the Safari Zone in Johto, not sure of gender but think it was female. More than a decade ago, would have to look for exact date.

And on here, mine was a shiny Meowth female, think it was my first egg of that species but not entirely sure even if I wasn’t playing as much then as I do now. And it was also adopted from the Lab, which to date is my only shiny obtained from there. Just a shame I already evolved her to Persian way back then, unlike some of my other shinies back then or since returning, as could’ve gotten the Gmax version instead if I waited (actually had high IVs too, 146). And my 2nd here I know for certain was my first egg I grabbed of Kecleon and the only one to date of that one.

My first shiny on GPX+ was Togepi, which I named "First Shiny". I hatched it after 5 days, 15 years ago. Oh how the time flies.

My first ever shiny in games was Magikarp in Emerald. I fished it and thought it was just some cool color and this particular spot was a place where you could fish more if wanted to. So I didn't catch it. The S.S. Anne episodes in anime made me think golden Magikarps were someting that just happens for time to time.

My next shiny was shiny Rattata in Crystal, before you get your first pokéballs. I was soooooo pissed because I couldn't catch it even if I wanted to. It's clearly a flaw in the game design to let person wander in grass before acquiring pokéballs.

more boxes!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!

i first joined gpx back in 2010 and had really fond memories of playing it as a teen - enough that ten years later i still remembered it and was like, "huh, i liked collecting eggs on that site, wonder if it's still around?" and searched it up again - but i must either not have played as much as i remembered or just was very incompetent because i had never hatched a shiny before returning to the site. my first was a mareanie that i hatched after only a 1-day hunt during last january's SWSH:



my first shiny in the games was a ralts! i love that line's shiny so i was super thrilled. i caught it in alpha sapphire with that creeping in the grass shiny chain mechanic, it was the first time i've ever really shiny hunted and the only shiny i've ever encountered (have never had just a random encounter). i guess i just never really got into shiny hunting in the games even though i was sort of trying to start with that catch? it does seem like it's so much easier in the newer games, i might return to it but it's just been easier to consistently play something like gpx than the actual pokémon games lol.

Not that I've been able to find those new boxes to buy.

*shrugs*

I liked shiny hunting in the Hordes. Use a sweet Incense. Roam the grass. BOOM! Five pokemon attack. Are any of them shiny? Why, yes, one is. Let's faint the other four, and then False Swipe the shiny to one HP.

I know I found a shiny Gligar in one of the games while I was power-leveling, so it was likely before Exp. Share was a thing. Can't remember which game, or even if it was my first one. My most recent game shiny has to be the Gogoat I found in Violet. It's also the ONLY shiny I've found in Violet.

For those having trouble finding the new boxes, they are in the regular main shop so they cycle out at 6am and 6pm server time. You can see everything purchasable if you use the Pass Power - Purchase power and get them without waiting that way. happy.gif

love love love



my first shiny in a pokemon game (aside from the red gyarados in OG gold/silver) was a flaafy in crystal version on my very first playthrough, right when the game came out in 2000. I knew *something* was up with it, because it had the sparkles around it like the red gyarados did, but I didn't know what it was - because shiny flaafy is only a tiny bit different pink than regular flaafy, and on a GBC the color difference was barely noticable unless you had them up side by side. This was way before you could just look that kind of thing up on the internet, google was still a lil baby website, and pokemon guides and walkthroughs were almost entirely text only with some ascii art (there were some IMPRESSIVE ascii maps on gamefaqs!)

Of course now I know what it meant, but back then I was coinvinced it was a bug or something wrong with my game because i never encountered it again (other than the red gyarados, of course). lol.gif

on gpxplus, my first shiny was a squirtle. i wasn't hunting it, i just got lucky, and it inspired me to hunt all of the shiny starters.

First shiny in the games was actually a shiny Pidgey in HeartGold... before you got Pokeballs. The first shiny we caught wasn't until years later with a Sandshrew in Alpha Sapphire!

On GPXPlus, it was a random Sableye (who will probably get mega'd once we stop being lazy :v)!

omg Saaaame~ Was level grinding in Crystal (1st video game I've ever owned even). I didn't even really realize at 1st it was a different colour and thought the opening sparkles was an attack like Flame Wheel xD
