Hello everyone~!

Wow, absolutely love how many people are participating in the Halloween event!
People are posting more, chatting on Discord and trying to collect those cool prizes.

Maybe you guys noticed as well - a bunch of users have been offering up cool ideas for future SWSH themes, and are always thinking how to make the site even more fun. You're awesome, I love it! That's why I couldn't shake the thought that I want to give you guys the opportunity to... design events. Use your imagination!

With the new event system in place, we could have an event more often, without needing a Root Administrator to implement it.
I'm absolutely sure you guys will have a lot of excellent ideas for events like the Halloween one.

You can submit yours by simply posting in this thread!

I'm open to other pokemon being added to this list... if anyone has any suggestions, feel free to ask!
Edited to include Rookie's suggestion and the artifacts as prizes.

I don't have anything particular to submit at the moment but just want to say this is an awesome idea and a great way to make the site more engaging again without a lot of added work for the staff team. Thanks Nom and the rest of the team for implementing this!

We could also doooo something even crazier:
Edit: Whoops, Mr. Spaz and I had the same idea xD

Something a little more unique and community-focused, perhaps? My attempt to put what I know best about GPX at the forefront for a little, and perhaps help others hit that Master Commuter achievement!

Love this thread btw! I was just thinking yesterday how the Halloween event has been repeating for a few years and I'm running out of eligible mons to shiny hunt during it. Variety would be awesome!

Event Name: Year of the Tiger
Tell us a little more about your idea: Well, in the traditional Chinese Lunar New Year, 2022(starting Feb 1st) will be the Year of the Tiger! This zodiac "symbolizes determinism, spontaneity and novelty," and "draws its strength and growth, despite adversity, from dynamism and enthusiasm." https://www.karmaweather.com/news/yearly-chinese-horoscope/predictions-2022 And what better way is there to describe the passion that GPXplus users put into their hunts? ^^
These pokemon are eligible for hatching with coins:
Meowth
Alolan Meowth
Galarian Meowth (if we have it)
Eevee (kind of a cat?)
Skitty
Shinx
Glameow
Zangoose
Purrloin
Litten
Litleo
Espurr
Other cat-themed Pokemon...?
Prize Suggestions:
Entei, Raikou, Suicune eggs
Sun and Moon Flutes
Zeraora egg
Mew, Mewtwo eggs
Zergoose eggs
Blue Stone
Vouchers, scratch cards, the usual

  • Event Name: The Battle Subway Extravaganza!
  • Tell us a little more about your idea: Long have we had the battle system in GPX, but only a select several have managed to master the Subway and learn exactly what it takes to succeed on long streaks. This event is meant to bring to light strategies old and new, which Pokemon are favored by some of the battling experts, and help everyone find teams that work for them!
  • These Pokémon are eligible for hatching with Coins: This is part of the event: Prominent battlers past and present (I imagine me, Venusaur King, and some of the members topping the Battle Tower/Subway charts still active) could be interviewed to provide their own little article on their main team for Subway battles, and the Pokemon available for coins could be the basic eggs of the Pokemon in those players' teams
  • Prize suggestions (like items, Pokémon eggs, Scratchcards): 15-25 coins: Battle items (Choice items, gems, Leftovers)
    100 coins: Flaming Zorua Voucher (one of my choices as a good battle novelty, there may be more)
    Perhaps 750 coins: Shiny Battle Voucher (a voucher for a shiny version of one of the aforementioned coin Pokemon)
Something a little more unique and community-focused, perhaps? My attempt to put what I know best about GPX at the forefront for a little, and perhaps help others hit that Master Commuter achievement!


I love all the suggestions, but this one especially. I would love such an event to come to reality=) Or maybe even the interviews without the event - I want to get better in battle subway, but I struggle so much.

Posted by: Rookie Roo Oct 24 2021, 01:07 PM

I have a bunch of options! grin.gif
(Also thank you for allowing us to suggest events!)
Some of the events I suggest are actually just an excuse to allow us to shiny hunt Legendaries in a more reliable way, which I think is something a lot of us would like to do.

If anyone who ends up reading these, if you would like to suggest more things about the events I post in here, you can always send me a message so I can come back and edit the post with your suggestion! That way, the mods won't need to go back and forth constantly to see if there are more ideas built upon another! :P ALSO because I believe we are supposed to keep only our suggestions in here and not discuss them so the mods can have an easier time in finding different ideas for the events (it's not the same reading an event after the other, than reading one and then having to skip, say, 10 replies before getting to another idea)!

Uhhh, anyway, first I'd like to revisit some previous ideas, if I'm allowed!

°~° ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ °~°


For the Bird event ideas. Mostly, I'd like to suggest adding: Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Tornadus, Lugia, Ho-Oh and Yveltal, each at the prize of 100 and with unlimited stock (to allow us to shiny hunt them if we'd like to!)

°~° ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ °~°


For the Earth one, you could even add Meloetta (unlimited, 100) to the prizes, signifying people taking inspiration from Earth and incorporating it into songs or dances, and also reinforce the idea of adding Celebi (unlimited, 100), Manaphy (unlimited, 100), Shaymin (unlimited, 100)

°~° ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ °~°


For the Spooky event that we are in! We could add Griseous Orb (unlimited, 50) too, and Hoopa (unlimited, 100, TRICK or treat)! Actually, if there is a summon legendary in the event shop, we could add their summoning item at half the price the legendary: yes, you could have ANOTHER legendary if you choose to spend it in their summon item, BUT you could also lose it once you use it in the Lab!


°~° ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ °~°


Maybe bringing back the Fossil Event too? grin.gif


°~° ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ °~°


Anyway, those were my add-ons for some of the previous suggestions. I'd also suggest to lower the price of any (not recently added) legendary to 100 of any event and to make their stock unlimited, so we can have a bit more of a chance to shiny hunt them.

As to why 100: Last event, the Baby event, I think (maybe?) that I was one of the users who had the most coins in total (a huge outlier, but you could treat me as the maximum limit of sorts). My grand total was 4500 coins. If we were to reduce the prize to 100, I'd have been able to get, at most, 45 eggs of any legendary. If the average for any shiny is around 1:300, it would take me around 6 or 7 events to get to 300 (and that's if I concentrated all those coins in legendaries and ignore anything else, not to mention if I manage to get such an amount again!), so I think it sounds reasonable (aka: not even hoarders like me would be able to have it easy).
I also don't think it's a bad idea to lower the price because it's only the people who want to shiny hunt these Pokemon the ones who would be constantly spamming the same eggs over and over, while other people who don't care for those shinies would just ignore them or just get one egg to get both the egg dex and the pokedex entry. But, of course, its you guys who decide! Just giving my two cents in here.

°~° ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ °~°


Another suggestion, if I may, would be to increase the amount of coins that high maturity mons give, instead of keeping them at one coin. That way people would be more willing to go and hunt other 'mons that are not the lowest maturity! And, if possible, to make it so we can spend our coins in any item we'd like and not have a "maximum of two". That way we can go ham on, say, corruption items and later on use them at our own leisure.

ANYWAY now for the actual "original" suggestions I have:

(EDIT for some options: Someone in the Discord said that having Shiny Legendary Vouchers for all the events might not be a super good idea especially if they become more common, and that perhaps it should be limited to 3 shiny legendary vouchers per year or something like that. I actually agree a little with this idea, so I deleted some of them for some events! [not that I expected them to be there anyway! After all, these are just suggestions!])

°~° ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ °~°
(EDIT: 24/Oct/21. Seems like Sealeo and us thought of the same idea, woops! Maybe we could merge both ideas?)

°~° ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ °~°
°~° ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ °~°
EDIT (24/oct/21): Twili pointed out I missed some other forms, like Rattata and Zgzagoon, so I added those too!

AAAAAND that's all from me (for now, haha... Unless?)
Like I said, most of my suggestions hinder in making Novelties and Legendaries more accesible for those who may want to hunt them, which is why I left the shiny vouchers in all of the events (but also read 'Final Thoughts'). Ideally I would elevate the stock of the Sh. Voucher Plus to unlimited because hunting Unown (and getting Blue Soup) is P A I N because we have no way to hunt them reliably (plus who would try to go for lots of shiny vouchers, seriously? Haha, yeah, no one! So surely, it would be like "whatever" if it were to change to unlimited stock, right? eyes.gif?) , and same goes for the Legendaries but, with these events, you could somewhat be able to hunt them a little bit easier even though you wouldn't be able to get them in just one event due to the average! It opens up that possibility that we didn't have before and, frankly, that's AWESOME!

And lastly, Final Thoughts:

Just wanted to say that raising the price for the shiny vouchers is a great idea, in my opinion! That way, it makes us users be critic of what exactly do we want or don't want. ALSO might help in keeping the HYPE alive for even MORE time throughout the event, since people might go even harder for a longer time because they want x shiny voucher! So altogether a great idea, I think. We just gotta see how it works and see if what I said is true or not!

(Also, please, enter more Magikarps into events, because as a Karp Lover and as a lover of going into "Hatching Insanity" mode, the karps make my heart go WILD. SERIOUSLY love when I see those little fellas around for an event...) I mean what? Who said that?! oh.gif

Anyway, thank you!

Posted by: PokeNOM NOM NOM Oct 24 2021, 02:57 PM

Loving the suggestions so far, everyone. Feel free to submit as many events as you can dream up!

I still see some people posting reactions to ideas. Or telling me how much they like this thread (I'm so glad you do!).
Or people posting add-ons to ideas posted above. Thank you for thinking along and I appreciate your enthusiasm, but it's not going to work in the long run.

The reason I advise against this, is:
If I choose an event, and then have to scroll through + re-read all posts to make sure no objections/reactions/add-on suggestions have been made to it (especially if the number of ideas grows), I'm going to miss a few for sure! Post reactions in the Community Thread or talk about it on Discord all you like, but what I'm going to pick from is the filled out forms.

Again, I don't mean to put a stop to all the enthusiasm and inspiring ideas, keep them coming for sure!
But I know my chaotic self and I have to try to keep things organized, haha~ ^^;

Event Name: Legends: Arceus (Someone more creative than me can come up with a fun name for the event)
Tell us a little more about your idea: Celebrating the release of Legends: Areceus...Game comes out end of January 2022, so this event would ideally take place in February once the game is out. Also in February it wouldn't compete with the SWSH.
These Pokémon are eligible for hatching with Coins: Putting spoilers on it because the game isn't out, but I'm referencing Serebii's list of Pokemon we've seen in trailers.

Pokemon to include (click to show)



Didn't realize there were that many already confirmed...if we want a large pool that would be great, but also might be better to trim down the list for a more even split between egg maturities.

(EDIT): List of Pokemon could also just be those with new forms/evolutions. According to some rumors online, there should be a decent amount and we'd know by the time this event were to be activated.

Event Name: Unique Pokemon Day

Tell us a little more about your idea: Let's talk about...novelties! What is your favourite? It is an event without any particular time and date=3

These Pokémon are eligible for hatching with Coins: I dunno, how many you could fit and I want to specify that we all be hatching REGULAR mons with novelty forms (I hope it makes sense!): Kanto starters, pidgey, bidoof, psyduck,buneary, slugma, caterpie, mareep, miltank, tentacool, shuppet, drifloon, misdreavus, eevee, makuhita, litwick, lilligant, fatfetch"d, Johto starters, horsea, togepi, torchic, larvitar and so onX). I think we can exclude ghosties, because they are more Halloween-themed one. And yeah, I dunno, how many could be squeezed in=)

Prize suggestions (like items, Pokémon eggs, Scratchcards): Itema to make novelties, legendary pokemon eggs who can be turned into novelties, maybe some novelty eggs (like female eevee-only, bidofo and the others, which are hard to tell apart), shiny novelty voucher (500-600 coins each, max of 2. Grand prize)

Plus, it's not too "northern hemisphere" since the southern hemisphere can catch a lot of "chilly" Pokemon during what is winter for them.

So... Today's a really, really important day for me! In order to celebrate this day, I decided to leave this one here as both a token of my appreciation to this site AND as a gift of me to everyone. I do not know if it will be made into a real event, BUT we have nothing to lose by suggesting it right? lion.gif

And because I am slightly crazy, I will also share this nice meme I made grin.gif
Which cough cough if you guys want a subtitle for the event, it'd definitely be "This is madness!", and the banner for the event would be the "THIS IS KARPTA!!!" pannel -wink wink-
