The competition has already started and you're too late to sign up. Stop spamming my inbox about this, please and thank you.

First of all, this isn't the new event system that was promised to replace the old one. That's not quite ready yet, so instead, we're going to do something new this month.

As I mentioned when first revealing the Shine Recorder:
QUOTE(Big Bidoof @ May 28 2010, 02:25 AM) *
It's available for 6 000 points - and without revealing too much, I'd recommend anyone who has any interest in shiny hunting buy this at their earliest convenience, as this might be used for more in the future.

And now has come the time to reveal what this meant - this month, we'll be having a site-wide shiny race!

The way it works is as follows: using one of the open spots in your Shine Recorder, start a shiny hunt for the specially-labeled competition Pokemon. Sign-ups will run all day today, and then after reset on Friday night, the hunt will begin. Note that all the normal restrictions for setting up a shiny hunt still apply - you have to have obtained the Egg Dex and Pokedex entries for this Pokemon, and you can't have cancelled a hunt for it in the past three weeks. You'll then have one full week to hatch a shiny of the competition Pokemon. Anyone who succeeds in doing so, regardless of how many eggs they hatch during this time period, or how long it takes, will be awarded the main prize. Once you hatch your shiny Pokemon, that's it until the time's up and the competition ends.

Note that any eggs obtained or hatched before the sign-ups close will not count, so don't bother hoarding up the competition Pokemon's egg beforehand.

For the duration of the week, to fuel the hunt, there will be increased amounts of the competition Pokemon produced in the Lab, anyone who has the competition Pokemon in their Daycare will have all offspring be that specific egg, and additionally, they'll automatically breed every hour, and breed increased amounts as well (though, their eggs bred stat won't represent the increased amount of eggs produced).

And of course, the most important part, the prizes: for everyone who finishes, you'll receive a voucher for a brand new Novelty Pokemon. Everyone else gets a consolation prize based on how many eggs they hatched towards the shiny hunt. If you enter, but cancel the competition shiny hunt, you won't get any prize, however.

And in addition to this, to get things rolling at a faster pace (and for my own curiosity, to test out some changes I made to the database the other night), Saturday will be a x2 click day. Should it be a CM day, then Sunday will be instead. All day today, the price of the Shine Recorder will also be cut in half, as you'll need one to enter. (see second edit)

The competition Pokemon this time (since, there will likely be a next time) is Swinub.

Happy hunting~

EDIT: And one change I've decided to add in - claiming the competition egg from the Shelter will not count against your daily Shelter limit for the duration of the competition.

EDIT AGAIN: I'm going to be buying a second server (have to wait till sales is open, which they aren't on weekends), so the x2 will wait till after that. It'll hopefully be online Tuesday or Wednesday, I guess, though I can't really be more specific until I can actually talk to someone about it and figure out what I'd like to do.

EDIT AGAIN AGAIN: Scoreboards~ http://gpxplus.net/shiny_race

EDIT AGAIN AGAIN: Friday, which is also the last day of the competition will be a x2 day. If it ends up being a CM day, then the bonuses will stack.

ONE FINAL EDIT (I think): I won't be around at midnight to hand out the prizes immediately when the competition closes, so it'll either be tomorrow evening when I get home from work, or if I don't have a chance, Monday when I get back. It'll give you more time to speculate on the novelty, in the very least I suppose. happy.gif

And it's over. grin.gif

Prizes are as follows:

Completed hunts - Prize Voucher
Incomplete hunts, >= 150 eggs hatched - Consolation Prize Voucher
Incomplete hunts, < 150 eggs hatched - Enigma Stone

Congrats to everyone~

Too bad I don't have any extra spots in my shine recorder noes.gif
Nice idea though ;D


--------------------

This Pokémon looks rather hungry.. she cannot mature as fast unless she is fed.
Would you like to give her a berry?

Which berry would you like to feed it?

This is an excellent way to make everyone feel like they'll be a winner, and a great chance to put the shine recorder to even more use. <3 Thank you for doing this, and I am most certainly competing in this. Also, green swinub.gif is smexxy looking.
