It still says December at the top

Happy New Year, everybody! Here's to a good 2018. Hope we all survived yesterday. wink.gif

Happy New Year everyone! Hoping this year is going to be a lot better than last year.

Posted by: Necrozma Jan 1 2018, 01:51 PM

I hope everyone has a fantastic year!

Also, why is the main site offline? That has never happened to me before.

The prizes are probably being handed out.

I got a shiny Novelty Voucher compared to a shiny nihilego voucher others got. Wow. I am fucking disappointed at my own luck. Was number #8 in activity as well....

EDIT: Where's the new pokemon that we were told about??

Posted by: Stufful Jan 1 2018, 02:02 PM

surprised I got a Legend voucher for only 5 ticket entries! Shiny Nihilego would've been neat tho oh.gif

Posted by: Stark Coyote Jan 1 2018, 02:03 PM

lol regular novelty voucher. hm

Posted by: Mikaku Onchi Jan 1 2018, 02:10 PM

Happy 2018 everyone!!! It was so strange to wake up so late today, log in to gpx and it was still December all over the site (because of the threads pinned to the top) XD It's ok tho take your time , I'm not complaining I just found it funny.

I'm pleased with my raffle prize, got a shiny voucher plus. On my way to get a shiny Unown with it hehe. After all I was as active as I could yesterday. This prize is more than good for me.

I'm sad about my shiny Zekrom hunt. Ended up catching its normal form because the hunt was up to a gigantic number of SRs and I'm not a masochist. Ever since I installed the version 1.1 upgrade I can't find any more shinies I swear to God. I don't know if it has anything to do with the update since no one mentioned it. Maybe I'm just being reeeeeeeaaaally unlucky.

Posted by: Asbel Lhant Jan 1 2018, 02:18 PM

I ended up getting a second Shiny Voucher from the raffle. I would have LOVED to get a voucher for Sh. Nihilego or a shiny legend but I'll take what I can get. I don't know what I'll use it on, if I use it at all. I still have a Shiny Voucher from the coin event last year I haven't used yet. I'll probably use it on one of the Unown if I do end up using it.

So how is everyone spending their New Years? I'm playing Breath of the Wild at the moment while I'm waiting for supper to cook. We're having a turkey dinner, something I missed out on during Christmas because I was dying with the flu. I'm definitely going to enjoy it, turkey is one of my favorite foods.

Posted by: Alex Mercer Jan 1 2018, 02:23 PM

Nothing from the raffle, but I only had 11 tickets anyway. Wasn't at the computer for most of New Years. The prizes that got handed out did look nice, though! A little jealous, but them's the breaks. I'm still happy with the shiny voucher from the Hanukkah event.

...I just popped a summon power and started button mashing in the lab. It took a few minutes of getting progressively angrier at the lack of luck before I realized I forgot to use the Adamant Orb.

Here's to 2018!

Edit: And got my Dialga. I skipped over a Cresselia twice while hunting - hope the summoner got it in the end. I'm not actually very good at poaching legendaries while I'm hunting my own. I don't read the descriptions as much as I do scan for the shape of the description I'm looking for (which is part of why I dislike the complicated, long egg descriptions for gens 6 and 7 - they look like legendaries and throw me off), so I gloss over everything that isn't what I'm looking for. For the record, Dialga has a pretty distinctive shape, but Ralts looks rather similar. Ho-Oh and Lugia are by far the easiest to spot. Cresselia, Groudon, and Rayquaza are a bit tricky because they're short and unobtrusive. Lati@s and Shaymin are especially bad because they don't have unusual descriptors and look like other common eggs.

Posted by: Synx Itax Jan 1 2018, 02:43 PM

Happy New Year, all! I'm just sitting around doing a whole bunch of nothing today. Just taking some time to rest and relax.

I didn't get anything for the raffle because I had literally one entry, but I'm not mad. My fault for not participating as much as I could have. :P I know some people are a bit upset at what they got, but hey, it's a raffle. No guarantees of anything, even if you worked hard to collect entries.


Posted by: Necrozma Jan 1 2018, 02:44 PM

I only had two entries, so I was surprised when I got a Novelty Voucher. I am quite pleased with it and used it to get a Zygarde core forme.

Posted by: Alex Mercer Jan 1 2018, 02:48 PM

Chilling is the best thing to do on New Year's Day. Here's hoping things look up.

That does remind me, though... is GPX looking for additional spriters? I'm not really the most committed individual, but I wouldn't mind trying my hand at a few of the Gen 7s that are left. I'm not sure if I could produce something good, a bunch of them are bizarrely thin and that's tricky to work with, but I could try. I have improved drastically at spriting since I made trinket submissions - I have a couple of failed Dragon Cave submissions for proof of adequacy if needed, and I also have a lot of free time at the moment.

Posted by: Amberfunk Jan 1 2018, 03:27 PM

Got a shiny voucher. Will probably use it for ditto since I've been after one for a long time. Looking forward to a fully vegan year. Started off with fishless tenders and stuffing. Will be making a creamy dumpling stew.

Posted by: Sportsfan666 Jan 1 2018, 03:58 PM

New thread! I don't feel stuck in 2017 anymore.

Posted by: Gryphaena Jan 1 2018, 04:03 PM

Hello everyone!

So since this thread doesn't mention months anymore, I suppose it is the permanent community thread?

I suppose we'll see it get to humongous post amounts then.

Posted by: Running On Ice Jan 1 2018, 05:44 PM

Happy New Year everyone!

I ended up getting 7th for activity yesterday and was one of the 10 who got the Shiny Nihilego voucher, so I'm pretty satisfied with my prize.

Posted by: AregularFrankiefan Jan 1 2018, 07:15 PM

Wow, 2018 already. Time seems to be moving faster and faster every year. Also, just realized that Crystal isn't available on the eShop yet until maybe late Jan or early Feb? And I'll be back at work/having classes by then, so I probably won't have that much time to play...Poo. sad.gif

May as well finish up this replay of HeartGold, though. Still want that shiny Mewtwo. Speaking of shinies [and this site], the RNG seems to hate me in terms of getting my actual hunts done.

Posted by: Myou Jan 1 2018, 09:17 PM

Got the shiny novelty voucher from the event, so I'm pretty content with this start of the new year.

Also, are we not having the egg distributions that usually happen on the 2nd to the 6th? I noticed it was missing as I was reading through the usual stuff at the top. I can see with how many events we've had over the past few weeks, everyone could use a break from the chaos.

In...I believe it was the last Community Thread or something like that, it was mentioned that the monthly distributions were stopping for an indefinite amount of time. So no, we're not getting the egg distributions this month.

Posted by: Cryptic Lyric Jan 1 2018, 10:32 PM

Ohh, I got the shin novelty voucher. Not sure what I want to use it for, so I'll just hang onto that for now.

Hope everyone had a good start to the year!

Posted by: AregularFrankiefan Jan 2 2018, 12:44 AM

Just got Shears from the Backroom, whoo. Now I can finally get that Novelty Mareep. RNG hates me. Also, forgot to mention this before, but happy new year to everyone. Hope your 2018 will be good, or at the very least less terrible than it may have been beforehand.

Posted by: Storskarfen Jan 2 2018, 01:51 AM

Brand new community thread. We'll have to see how long this one stays up! My New Years was chill but still very nice.

Posted by: The Kraken Jan 2 2018, 06:10 AM

So what ever happened to the other Zygarde forms?
I thought we were supposed to get them in october, and 2 months later there's still no sign.

There won't be any monthly egg distributions anymore as per the last paragraph of the second post in the December Community thread: https://forums.gpx.plus/index.php?s=&showtopic=75193&view=findpost&p=2485886

Oh swsh votes are open, I'm really curious to know what we'll be hunting this month. Anyway, here's my votes:



Really hope snorunt can make it this time snorunt.gif

I went with Sentret, Torchic and Snorunt. Usually my three picks are in order to end a family line (that's why I voted for Sentret and Torchic) but Snorunt is such a nice looking shiny that I went with it. nod.gif

Posted by: Mikaku Onchi Jan 2 2018, 11:27 AM

@SilverPT yeah Snorunt has a pretty nice shiny palette, I really like it. Plus I'm still missing shiny Froslass, so if it's chosen this is one more excuse to hunt it grin.gif

I started a Suicune hunt, pretty sure it will take years to finish but oh well. Shiny Suicune is so nice looking...
If you could spare this poor Zoroark some berries from your bag it would be awesome eh:

https://r.gpx.plus/XSeyL

Posted by: Luneon Jan 2 2018, 12:11 PM

I'm going with Wooper, Phione and Snorunt.
I still don't have a female Snorunt... >__<
Been wanting to get a Froslass for a while now but each time I hatch shiny males.

(You can only get a Froslass if it's a female)

Posted by: Mamanator Jan 2 2018, 01:25 PM

2018 begins and I see we're in the month with the SWSHy. Yay! Well, a partial yay at least. With just the one slot available for now I'm not sure how greedily I'll be able to snatch an egg or two, but I'll see what develops.

This January is beginning waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than its predecessor. By this time last year my husband was calling me to tell me he needed to go to the ER. He's been doing so well since his heart valve replacement though and he's even beginning (hopefully) a new career. Anything! to get him away from grubby insurance. He went to a professional driving school and now has his CDL complete with all the endorsements he can get. Double (trailers), triples, hazmat, and I think there was something else. *blush* But he has them all and now we're hoping that this week he'll settle on one of the offers and get set up to begin his breaker-breaker truck driving career. Talk about your Go Daddy! lol.gif

And next week my youngest returns to the public education world following a semester of online high school courses. Here's hoping her high level of self worth remains strong as she heads back to the dredges of high school cliques and the who's who of what "really" matters. -_-2.gif Hopefully we can get her through it though and she can bring her failing grades back up to public passing grades at least.

As for me.... I'm in the office today but still working 95% from home. The Board Meeting is coming later this month and I'll have to sit in on that 3 day bored fest. With any luck it won't hamper my shiny hunt luck any more than my single slot open situation. *eek*!

I *think* I managed to score a legendary voucher plus from the raffle event. While it won't get me what I really want, I won't look the gift horse in the mouth (horses teeth are solid yo!) and be grateful to have received something. Raffles by nature are tough for me to win so I'm just glad that I walked away with something. Given I only had about 13 entries, I was lucky to have even that.

Not sure who I'll vote for this months SWSH, but since Snorunt seems popular, and it is winter, I'll give it an extra bump. I'm open to suggestions and can change my other two spots as more people chime in on what they want. Since we can't hunt the shiny I *need* I'm open for what you want me to slide in there.

PS: Happy New Year Everybody!

Posted by: Running On Ice Jan 2 2018, 02:32 PM

I again went with three Alolan Pokemon I need because Snorunt would be a completely useless choice for me.

https://r.gpx.plus/wttyL
Could you please feed him an Aspear Berry? I should be done with this by now.

Posted by: Cryptic Lyric Jan 2 2018, 05:07 PM

I'm not usually one for resolutions, but I'm setting small goals for myself this year: read more, write more, draw more, drag my sorry butt to the gym more often. Just do things I enjoy more without feeling guilty about it. I also started a new journal for this year, to try and keep myself organized. Anyone else have goals/plans?


I'm also trying for my second completion of TBD, so any and all Aspears for https://r.gpx.plus/hvqaL would be greatly appreciated.

Literally the same. I've actually written notes in my phone in a folder titled "2018 plans" - I've written down notes for shopping lists, meal plans, purchases, driving school lists *big one* and events I'm doing with friends happy.gif

Need to sort myself out big time!

Posted by: Luneon Jan 2 2018, 07:38 PM

I don't have much this year.
Arrogant, maybedefinitely, depending on who you ask.
I think it's just better to postpone things for another year.

I want to pick up a yearly anime watching challenge. After trying out the bimonthly one to find how many shows I can reasonably watch in that time, I think I should be able to handle the yearly one.
Can't hurt to broaden my horizons, can it.

Oh and I want to watch a PreCure I guess. Just dunno which one.
Also Cardcaptor Sakura.

.....now that I look at it, that's quite the list hahaha

Posted by: x Luna Jan 2 2018, 08:13 PM

I got a shiny voucher plus which made me really happy considering I couldn't be as active as I wanted to, I already used it in a tiny shiny Litten and also I got my Good Luck achievement thanks to the voucher, so it was a great start of the new GPX year.

I didn't read last time that there won't be an egg distribution anymore, I was hoping I could get another Tapu that way, but it's fine, I will wait another 3 times for the exploration to complete them (or maybe I'll be lucky and get a legend voucher some day!).

Regarding our achievement lists for the new year, for now I'm thinking about embarking on TBD for the first time, hopefully I can finish it before I have to start working again lol

And happy new year everyone!


Edit:
BTW, I'm trying to get the Office Wars achievement (Win or lose a race with a friend where each of you is hunting a different Admin-based novelty), in case anyone is interesting in starting a shiny race hunt with me! I'm ok with either of the novelties.

Posted by: Sportsfan666 Jan 2 2018, 11:44 PM

I still need that achievement. I already have Zergoose but I still need the other two. I don't mind us hunting different Pokemon as long as they both qualify for the achievement. You can PM me if you are still looking for someone~

I'll probably wait a few days to pick my SWSH pokes. Gonna wait and see what others pick.

Posted by: Celltres Jan 3 2018, 09:42 AM

Man, I forget how slow it is to hatch pokemon when there's no multipliers. Thankfully, Shelter+ is gonna be active from tomorrow, hopefully I can crack through some of my shiny hunts before the SWSH starts.

Yay! A multiplier tomorrow! *happy dances* That will help my last 2 of 5 Pokemon along. *smirk*

Good morning everybody! Are we talking New Year's Resolutions? Hmm. I haven't made any in quite a while. I like the post I saw on FB the other day... it went something like this:

QUOTE
Dear New Year's Resolution,

Well, if was fun while it lasted.

Sincerely,

January 2nd.


laughing.gif

*EDIT*
Wow. When you're suddenly glad that you aren't totally cut off from the outside world! I was going along on some other website when suddenly my internet went ka-flooey. So when I went to re open the website, the error message said it was no longer there. Along with every other website that isn't my work website... and, for thankful reasons, GPX. I can't currently access FB, Yahoo, Youtube, Scoopy Doo, or ANY other outside website. Yet... GPX wasn't removed or hurt in the great web address tossing. Very, very weird. Guess I'll hang out here today and hope that nobody else notices this website is still working. *smirk*

Posted by: Mikaku Onchi Jan 3 2018, 03:34 PM

God, I slept so much today, I had a terrible headache for some reason and fell asleep.
Talking about new year's resolutions? I don't usually make any because when I do I can never fulfill them so it's pointless.
I made a new post on the trinkets trade thread, take a look if you please happy.gif

Also, this dear needs some Aspear berries 'cause he's freezing, care to help?

Today was a heck of a day for me in the sense that so much went wrong. First I overslept, then I got essential oils in my eye, then I got locked out of my house, and then I got hot pepper in my eye. Go me! I mean, it's all good now, but those were some annoying points.

Fed everyone's exploration Pokémon. Speaking of that, I should start on one already...

Dang! Just my luck. Not soon after I posted that, the internet gremlins realized I had a working internet site... so it removed the IP address completely.

Tomorrow I go back to the office to present my conundrum to the IT guy. Over email he was clueless saying he saw nothing or did anything to cause it. But suddenly, when on my work's LAN, I could only access the work website and shared directory. I couldn't access any other site (work related websites, too!). It was like the internet DIED when I was connected to the LAN.

But when I shut down and restarted without connecting to the LAN, the internet was back. But work... work went away. I couldn't access the work website or the Outlook Web Email function. Gah!!

My headache today is grandiose size so.. yeah. I'm thinking some GoT will knock that out of the way for me. *smirk*

Posted by: Cryptic Lyric Jan 3 2018, 06:43 PM

I had the day off today, so I was planning on being productive. I ended up staying in bed until 10am and sitting on the couch until 3pm watching Luke Cage. Still sort of productive, but not what I had in mind.

Part of my new year goals is to create a reading list. I have SO many books on my TBR pile, but I want to have some plan of how I go through them. For some reason, though, I'm starting off 2018 with A Clockwork Orange. This should be interesting.

Glad to see that we're going to have another Plus active tomorrow! Always nice to have multipliers.

Posted by: Gryphaena Jan 3 2018, 07:34 PM

Thank you Donor(s), for maxing Shelter Plus!

A multiplier is nice to get activity going.

Posted by: Luneon Jan 3 2018, 10:22 PM

I played some Stardew Valley today. I'm taking it slow but I've somehow talked to all quest villagers minus 1.
Gotta find out who, and how/where to find that one. it's not the dark haired kid, I talked to him today

I'm excited for the plier so I can get some stuff out of the way.
Wanna finish up a couple things. I've hunted nearly all regular things I wanted to hunt so I think 2018 might be the year for my final shiny hunts of interest.

Posted by: Sportsfan666 Jan 4 2018, 03:31 AM

I got a Nihilego from a wormhole, pretty cool. I picked Corsola, Fomantis, and the meme Diglett for my SWSH Pokes. I've had a Corsola hunt going on for a while but eggs seem to be rare a lot of the time. Its my current longest hunt at just under 650 eggs hatched so the boost from the SWSH would be nice.

Posted by: Level-X Jan 4 2018, 04:49 AM

Well I finished the Exploration for Raikou and Zygarde. Raikou wasn't a shiny, but maybe I'll have luck with Zygarde. Also, I just started the Arceus Exploration again.. Even though I just finished it a few days ago. I have to wait for most of the Explorations to reset, so I figured why not. ^-^

Lucky, I saw in the voucher description that it could be gotten from wormholes but my last wormhole was a nebneb
Glad to see that it's been activated though, after getting a nebby I thought it wasn't activated yet

I don't think a lot of people are breeding corsola at this point
Loads of popular breeding mons have multiple evolutions and corsola doesn't have any
Although I gotta say corsola is pretty so I might add it to my list of things to hunt this year

Such a shame though
I hope it gets an evo or alt form eventually but I doubt it at this point

Posted by: Vulpix D Jan 4 2018, 01:26 PM

I put Sentret, Cacnea and Clauncher as my SWSH votes. Nothing i vote for gets picked so i went with the first 3 i thought of.

Meanwhile, i'm still hunting Alolan Rattata from september's SWSH. Along with Munchlax and Popplio

Popplio is for Hunting all the Shiny Starters. Munchlax is because i thought i could get a Shiny Snowman Munchlax pinch.gif

Yeep. I was looking for Swirlix in the lab and I ended up poaching both a Shaymin and a Volcanion. I feel kind of bad now.

I put Fomantis, Hoppip, and Onix in. Pretty random.

You so sweet! Good luck on your first exam tomorrow. Try not to overthink things and it may all work out in your favor. happy.gif

Well, to update on my internet hiccups.... I was at the office this morning and the IT guy checked everything over. He didn't see any problems whatsoever. So I worked from there for a while and had no issues. After my noon time conference call, I left to come home.

Using my personal wifi I then connected to what we call the "LAN" where the work data is all stored. Once I did that, the full internet, once again, went bye-bye. pissed.gif I tried both ways to connect with the second denying me access altogether.

Then I got to thinking... what if I use my work cell phone's hot spot? So.... I did.

Houston, I think my personal wifi is broken. shift.gif So I sent my IT guy an email... but wait... his response just came through. He said it isn't my personal wifi but some bad information that he thought he cleared up. So we're going to meet on the 9th and I'll use the hot spot until then.

So yay. I'm back to normal work mode with my side websites to ease the over tension and serve as the release I need.

See you all around the Clicking!

Posted by: Venusaur King Jan 4 2018, 08:24 PM

This is a bit of a non-sequitur, but I'm on episode 11 of The Punisher and it's really good. Easily the second best Marvel show on Netflix (behind Daredevil).

Posted by: AregularFrankiefan Jan 5 2018, 01:35 AM

Voted for randoms again: Pyukumuku, Dhelmise, Drampa.

On another note, does anyone else here shiny hunt in their actual Pokemon game cartridges? I'm currently SRing for Mewtwo in a retail copy of HeartGold [on day 3 so far], and should probably go check out the Friend Safaris of those people I recently added..

Posted by: Gigadyne Jan 5 2018, 01:53 AM

I picked some random choices for SWSH: A-Meowth/Clamperl/Dhelmise.

Regarding shiny hunting in actual games: nah, it's not in my top priority. Still, managed to score some nice shinies in Moon with shiny charm: Moody female Snorunt, shiny Ditto, and a Cutiefly.
First two were from SOS chaining, and the latter was my first successful Masuda method shiny.

Those are all some pretty nice-looking shinies. Planning on evolving the Snorunt or just keeping it unevolved?

Posted by: Gigadyne Jan 5 2018, 05:15 AM

Haven't decided yet. It's tempting to evolve it into Froslass, but she got an Impish nature, which is a letdown. But, on other hand Moody is a banned ability, nodaways.

It's been a while since I last posted here!
My computer screen died a week ago and I had to replace it. All good now!

I'm always excited for the SWSH, I love those.
I voted for Snorunt, Tyrogue and Wishiwashi this round.

@ shiny hunting in the games: I really enjoy shiny hunting (both on the site as in the games). I'm still playing through the storyline in my Ultra Sun game. No random shinies so far. I'm considering going back to the first islands and doing some SOS chaining. Unless I change my mind and go for some Masuda method shiny hunting, instead. Still looking for inspiration on what Pokémon to go for, first!

Posted by: Venusaur King Jan 5 2018, 08:12 AM

Just have Alolan Shinies to go, so I voted for Komala, Oraguru, and Wishiwashi. Not really expecting any of them to win though.

Posted by: Mikaku Onchi Jan 5 2018, 08:56 AM

Regarding shiny hunting in the actual games, I started to do it with Ultra Moon, got almost a box full of shinies already. I've also got some random shinies from other games (mostly Y). However, and I've been having 0 luck with shinies lately, all my latest hunts end up in failure sad.gif

Posted by: The Majestic Mr L Jan 5 2018, 10:58 AM

we talking about shiny hunting

I kinda just randomly decided to SR for a lot of stuff in USUM now that I actually am more into it than I was in ORAS.

So far have Articuno, Cobalion, Mewtwo, Azelf, Nihilego, Buzzwole, Xurkitree, Kartana, Reshiram, and Poipole. I also hatched a shiny Riolu and Own Tempo Rockruff and have randomly hatched at least 3 shiny Popplio by accident.
...Yeah. I may have an issue.

I found Mesprit a little while ago and have been lazily SR'ing for it.

EDIT: I've also been insanely lucky for most of these, Buzzwole appeared in like 11 SR's, and Kartana and Poipole have been the most annoying, and even then I don't think they were that bad.

OK. I'll bite. What is SOS Chaining? And how, outside of breeding multiples to thousands, and that ever so rare and random bump into the wild, can you find a shiny in the games? I haven't found any random shiny in US and it is quite depressing. It seems like every game cartridge (for the 98% most part) I get knows that its me so the shiny Pokemon that randomly gets put into the game (if such a Pokemon even exists) never appears. It truly angers me that I haven't found a random one, and shiny hunting by breeding is a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong chore. There must be an easier way, but I've not heard of or discovered it yet.

QUOTE(Mamanator @ Jan 5 2018, 07:20 PM) *
What is SOS Chaining?

If you've played SM or USUM, something you'll get into an SOS battle, where there's one Pokémon on the field but it can call for help and then a second Pokémon appears. The more times that this happens in one battle, the higher the chance becomes that the new Pokémon will be shiny. So that's one way, but obviously it only works for certain Pokémon which appear in wild SOS battles.
Outside of that, the default shiny rate is only 1/4096 now and you can halve that to 1/2048 with the Shiny Charm, which makes it a lot more possible to soft reset for shinies in some places. You can also breed Pokémon, and there's things like the Masuda method (breeding two Pokémon from different regions) which reduce the rarity even more. There's chain fishing and other obscure methods too. For the most part though it just takes lucl, patience, or both (neither of which I've ever had lol.gif).

Posted by: Gigadyne Jan 5 2018, 04:11 PM

As of X/Y, the odds with shiny charm are lowered to 1/1365, ~ 1/1024 for MM breeding.

SOS chaining can net you some nice pokemon with up to 4 guaranteed perfect IVs and hidden abilities, but that's after 40th reinforcement.
This stuff requires ability checking moves like Entrainment and Worry Seed. And a classic False Swipe with Hypnosis or Spore pokemon.

Posted by: Mamanator Jan 5 2018, 07:19 PM

Woah! Thanks for that information! I have played both games (in regular Sun my Pokemon are at level 50s) and have had several SOS battles. Those only go through, at the most, 12 Pokemon before ending. It is nice to know that there is a chance for a reason behind that madness if the chain continues to grow, so thank you for that 4-1-1.

In regular Sun I think the Daycare has that one "special place" where I can just trot around for x numbers of footsteps and hatch my egg fairly quickly. I had done that for a while, but yeah, tend to bore easily from that. LOL

I haven't heard of the Shiny Charm; is it something we can buy somewhere along the way?

As for the Masuda method, I should have Pokemon that I can breed with that intent in mind. I usually breed like Pokemon thinking that works best. Ha! Live a little learn a little, right? LOL

In US I really can't chain fish yet as I only have the basic rod. I'd rather wait until I can chain fish and capture more types and see what develops from that, but thank you for that insight as well.

So many side adventures to have in the games other than the story lines! Who knew?! blush.gif LOL

You earn the shiny charm when you complete the dex and go to speak with the game director in Heahea city happy.gif

Edit: In USUM he even gives you a special outfit hehe

Posted by: RicFule Jan 5 2018, 10:15 PM

So. Speaking of shiny pokemon, I just hatched my last site bird. All I have left to get are two Iron Shards. Once I get those, I'll have all the Plates and it will be time to go on a series of runs to get my Arceii.

I don't really hunt shiny pokemon in the cartridge games. Female starters, yes. I haven't played much in UltraSun yet, since I was attempting to get all the starters first. And possibly a False Swipe pokemon so I can catch myself an army. I'm just disappointed that the Hold Back Munchlax/Snorlax can't have that move bred down to its children.

Posted by: Gigadyne Jan 6 2018, 01:48 AM

Shiny charm debuted in Black/White 2, as a reward for completing the entire National Dex. Alola games lowered the task to completing regional Alola dex instead, since National dex mode was relegated to Pokebank for some reason.

But wasn't chain fishing a gen 6 only feature? Alola changed the fishing mechanics, after all.

And lastly, event only moves like Happy Hour and Hold Back can't be breeded down, only sketched by Smeargle.

I'm enjoying being offwork these days. I work in the dishroom at a seminary school, so when the students have Christmas break, the dishwashers don't have to work much at all. We will be resuming more regular working days probably next week, so I'm trying to enjoy these last few days of vacation.

Posted by: Cryptic Lyric Jan 6 2018, 10:20 AM

The only way I really shiny hunt in the actual games is Masuda method. I did chain fishing in AS, but only for a little bit. Something about riding around and hatching the eggs was just really relaxing, especially if I was already watching a movie or something.

Just got home from the doctors - I have the flu and have to find coverage for work. Which is kind of crap, but it is what it is. I'll take the excuse to have a day off, though.

Ive not had any luck since xD

I was playing a bit of Pokemon UM and found another shiny Quagsire in the Ultra Space Wilds grin.gif But most important than that, I finally found Guzzlord!!! Saved the game in front of it and I'll try for a shiny. Please Arceus, let me catch shiny Guzzlord!! crying.gif

I haven't had much Shiny luck since Platinum. Got a shiny Bidoof and Bibarel, as well as a Totodile. Last Shiny was a Garbodor in White. I've never attempted a Shiny Hunt, so They were all random. Just dont have the Patience to wait 600 SR's for a pokemon to change colors.

Most of my hunts on here take a Year as it is grin.gif

We have hust inished Ultras with my friend. We do not live in the same country.so we just call each other and play together. I had so much fun^__^ Caught a full odds shiny igglybbuff while playing. I've tried sos-hunting two times and it was a sucess. I'll try to finish my dex as soon as possible to hunt even more in ultra.I can have my shiny zorua I've always dreamed.

Posted by: Mikaku Onchi Jan 8 2018, 12:02 PM

Usually I'm clicking on gpx or lurking around tumbr/other sites while SRing in Ultra Moon, but that can be a little boring, at least that's what I think. I don't have a TV in my room and in my living room, where I can watch cable TV it's always freezing, so I prefer to stay in bed with my laptop. So, I'm now SRing Guzzlord and watching anime at the same time, taking the opportunity to finish some series I started a long time ago and never finished because I'm either to lazy or never remember to watch again lol.

I want to ask you guys something. What do you think about powersaves/action replay? I've bought a powersaves some time after I finished Y because I wanted to clone my shinies and give them out to people. I don't really think that's a bigggg problem or cheating nor do I care what people do with it, it's not my problem, but I'm curious. What do you think? Do you guys own one or would like to have one? Are you against it for some reason(s)?

I had an Action Replay when I was a kid, but I lost it somewhere. Thinking of getting a new one just for max cash + Poke Ball cheats because I'm too lazy to buy them. Powersaves would help with my goal of trying to obtain all the Fossil Pokemon with their Hidden Abilities. The only one left that I need is Soundproof Shieldon, and no one I've talked to has one in the first place. :/

Posted by: Cryptic Lyric Jan 8 2018, 05:39 PM

My boyfriend and I tore apart our room yesterday to find some of our Pokemon games, since they keep ending up in weird places. I still need to play through the rest of Moon, and we were talking about buying the Ultras, too.

On a different note, has anyone else played Cattails? It's like Stardew Valley, but with cats. It's fantastic.

And thank goodness, I moved on from the Snorlax task.

I haven't been here in a while, hello. Work has somewhat slacked off in the customer department, but its been pretty steady. We're still waiting on a lot of freight that was ordered back in December, hopefully we don't get it all at once.

I do shiny hunt in my Pokemon games, I tend to SR for shinies more than I random encounter them. My last shiny was my shiny Stakataka in UltraMoon, who I got after 184 SRs. I'm currently hunting for a second shiny Guzzlord, but I haven't been keeping track of my resets.

Decided to do the Deoxys exploration today, it took FOREVER to find a Pidgey for one of the tasks. I think it took me nearly 2 hours to find one. This Munchlax is hungry, please feed it some berries:

I've got a question about shards & plates - If I craft a plate, can I start collecting more shards of that type right away? Or do I have to complete DotW before I can get more shards of that type?

I've already done 5+ ghost hunts and have enough shards to make a Spooky plate, but I have more ghost hunts I want to do...

When you craft a plate that's it, you won't be able to obtain more shards of that type. You will have the crafted Spooky Plate forever, though once you redeem it for Arceus it will be shown as 'Used'. You can continue doing ghost hunts as much as you like, after all you're hunting for the shiny and not the shard!

I don't usually shiny hunt in games anymore. It takes a lot of time and it just ends up not being fun anymore. I have in the past for starters. I got a shiny torchic and shiny totodile this way. Totodile in heartgold was super quick after about only eight resets and torchic in sapphire only took a few hundred. Last one I tried for was skorupi in y through group wild battles by the fairy town. I gave up pretty quickly.

I'll go for alohan meowth this hunt even though I don't really like the squish face persian. Took such an elegant pokemon and just hit it with a frying pan.

Also, I've been looking for a long time in the Safari, but I can't find it all the time.
I thought a lot of people would breed it because of the explore, but it seemed that I was wrong.
Yes, I hope I can have a good luck, though hope is slim.

Posted by: ChibiNinja Jan 12 2018, 03:42 PM

Probably not going to be overly active with the shiny hunt, due to being stuck with a Togekiss taking up a party slot (because I haven't finished DotW, because I'm not super active, because my internet is horribly limited) but I still gotta say - this hunt's choices really seem like a lot of people just went 'eh some of the first things on the list good enough' with their choices...triple alolan ones...

Guess I'll hunt Alolan Meowth, because I'm not fond of Diglett and rather neutral about Geodude.

Posted by: Cycloneblaze Jan 12 2018, 07:13 PM

When will we run out of Alolan Pokémon to choose for SWSHs whyme.gif I'll probably go Geodude, but since I'm literally about to go back to college and be super busy I doubt I will finish it.

Guess I'll just keep going with my Ghost hunts (I have a think about having evo lines, not just the final stage).

I started a Sneasel hunt, 'cause it seems I don't have the Dark or Ice type shards yet =O

I'm kinda meh about this month's SWSH picks too, the stuff I voted for would've been cooler, lol. Oh well, I'm gonna hunt Alolan Meowth. I'm curious though, with the site dying, how much longer is SWSH and new prizes gonna go on for?

Posted by: koala bear Jan 13 2018, 12:13 AM

I find 2 bugs about the pokemon dex.
First, if I click Johto and select the Grouping Type, then it won't appear the fairy type. And if I click the Hoenn and the Grouping Type, it won't appear the fairy type. And so on.
Second, in the Scyther dex, its Evolves form is Mega Scizor, why? I remember only the Scizor could change to the Mega Scizor and the Mega Scizor should change to Scizor only. What happens?

Posted by: Gigadyne Jan 13 2018, 02:10 AM

Funny how Solrock are fairly common sight in Safari Zone, yet when Aurora hits, they become nearly nonexistant. Gives me a idea what to breed next after Alolan Meowth, at least.

Going with Alolan Meowth as well since I dislike Diglett's colors, and Geodude and evos I just don't like.
Signed up for Splatfest last minute... whoops. Completely forgot about it due to lack of promotion compared to other editions.

I got a former close friend of mine back.
We kind of broke up somewhere last year and I really missed her (and talking to her) a lot.
I'm glad I got her back. No before you ask we ain't dating. I've just known her a loooong time and I care for her a lot.

Also saw that the plus needed just 2% so I donated the credits I got through the scratchcards to max it.
Thanks to whoever brought it to 98%

Posted by: Asbel Lhant Jan 13 2018, 08:26 AM

Yeah I was stuck on the task looking for Solrock for two days. Now I'm stuck trying to find Chingling in the safari zone, the shelter and the lab. There just aren't any floating around. If I could find one I'd start breeding to help other people out. I figured it was going to be fairly quick but I'm on Day 4 for the exploration.

I'm not fond of any of the SWSH choices but I went with Alolan Geodude. I mainly went after it because it has less egg steps than the other two. I probably won't go after the others once I get it, getting one shiny is enough for the prize.

I will try to get all the pokemon's shiny form even though the shiny hunt is end, because I like most of the pokemon and think that the future shiny hunting may come up with the Pokemon I have already have their shiny form.

Just realized I'm about 109K points from the 1 Mil mark (and of course the achievement for it!) Its been a long time coming...even with me selling off every single spare item I get.

Also I got Alolan Meowth as my hunt. So far no shiny yet xD

Posted by: Running On Ice Jan 13 2018, 04:05 PM

I'm already hunting Alolan Meowth regularly so I just had to choose between the other two and went with the Geodude, and I ended up hatching the shiny already! I'll try and pick things up with Diglett tomorrow because of the active Plus. I'm hoping this is a good sign because last year my SWSH luck went down the tubes rather quickly. I'm still looking for Mimikyu.

I had 2 klink and 4 alolan meowths hatch all at once and went to mass move but it wouldnt move one of the klinks and I was a bit excited thinking that after 750~ eggs that I had FINALLY achieved it shiny. However nope...163IV Klink...its not bad but...not what I wanted xD

Im half wishing that I'll get 1k eggs before I get klink shiny...iirc its an achievement? Meaning I'd get to knock it off my list cat.gif

Posted by: Sportsfan666 Jan 14 2018, 01:01 AM

I'm hoping to finish the hunt early so I can use the inevitable honey+ for personal use whenever we get it. Gotta wait 12 minutes for these guys to hatch before I can do anything though.

Thanks to the people breeding Chingling, I finally managed to finish the Deoxys exploration. I spent so long searching for one to breed myself and then I saw a Chingling egg in the shelter. I'm definitely keeping some of them for next time, just in case they go 'extinct' during the exploration.

I already finished my SWSH shiny hunt, I got my Alolan Geodude after 61 eggs. I wasn't planning on hunting something else for the SWSH, but seeing as I got it early I picked Alolan Meowth. I'm going to take advantage of the free shelter grabs tongue.gif.

Super happy! Noticed I was about 50k points away from getting that corporate achievement...and also noticed that there was a sale on in the shop (dropping the zygarde cube to under 600k). Went and cut my stacks of evolution items down to 5 (most stones were stacked to 10 each) and FINALLY got my achievement and as my reward I splurged and got the cube AND the odd incense! (And I still have over 400k points left cat.gif)

Now if only that dang shiny would appear already xD So anyone else having bad luck hunting for their SWSH pokemon? Alolan Meowth is being pretty elusive xD Wish we had some honey+ to make snagging them from the shelter easier.

It's also nice that there's a SWSH going on so that people are clicking. Hopefully it'll make my Pechas go by faster: https://r.gpx.plus/uzHSL

To whoever asked about that Cattails game a while back; my current computer can't handle games. But if it could, I'd definitely be playing that.

Anyways, good luck to those of you still hunting. I've barely had the time to hatch Eggs, finals are coming up soon. Found somebody's failed Summon in the Lab this morning.

I'm so sorry to hear that your pc can't handle games. Cattails is really small, but I know some computers can't even handle those. It's such a cute little game. Stardew Valley + cats.

I got Assassins Creed: Origins for my birthday, but I haven't really delved into that yet. I'm supposed to be working on a review of a game called Sydney's World, but life has kinda gotten in the way of that.

I'm still on the hunt for my Alola dude. Still nothing too crazy, so I can't complain. I would like to get it soon enough to start another one of the hunts, though.

And I'm almost done with another feeding task for TBD, so of course there's fog going on. Cheri berries, please (when you can)! https://r.gpx.plus/ClqKL

Posted by: AregularFrankiefan Jan 16 2018, 07:27 PM

Fed all the Exploration Pokemon in this thread that still need Berries. Will do it again tomorrow, of course. Anyways, speaking of games, does anyone think that some of them aren't worth the price for what you get?

Even though I prepaid, I didn't enjoy shelling out $50 for Pokemon Moon when all was said and done. I just didn't find the Alola Region enjoyable [though the random shiny Bonsly I found while grinding was a nice bonus]. I more than likely won't be purchasing USUM, or if I really need a fresh game to be able to transfer things over, I'll see if I can snag a used copy for cheap.

To be honest, USUM is far more enjoyable than SM is. There's much more content in it, more things to do, the story is different and more appealing. But this is my opinion, of course. I'm not saying 'go and buy it, you'll like it', no. However. why not take some time to check out the story and the extras that were not in the first game.
The only thing I can really say it's missing it's the National Dex. It would be far more interesting if they had implemented it in USUM, but oh well.
(The minigames are awesome though)

Now, you're right about some games really not being worth their price. If I knew sooner that Kirby's Blowout Blast was only 5 levels of stupidity I wouldn't have spent my euros (it's a cheap game but meh)

I'm usually pretty cautious with what I buy, because I don't want to own something I don't like. So with games and books and nail polish, I tend to do a lot of research before I buy with the exception of consistent previous excellence (or a descriptor like "Stardew Valley + cats" because SV is one of my favorite games of all time). Especially in the case of physical items, the idea of finding out how to get rid of something that I didn't like is much more daunting than waiting past the release date to hear reviews from other people.

Posted by: Karatekid5 Jan 18 2018, 06:51 PM

About 300 eggs into the SWSH, hopefully I'll be able to get much more with this weekend's multipliers. Though even on multiplier days the most I've hatched in a day is 122. How does everyone hatch 200+ in a day? I interact a ton and I have the Lucky Egg upgrade to help but I don't know if there's anything else I can do to speed things up.

Posted by: MiyukoKaioh Jan 18 2018, 10:40 PM

^
Maybe with a low egg maturity and with the help of Flame Orbs? I could imagine that to work.

Posted by: Gigadyne Jan 18 2018, 11:56 PM

For that to happen, you need to be active during the day with multiplier of 3 and above. Having eggs of 2, 3, and 5 k maturity maximum also helps. Speaking of Flame orbs, they're only needed in case of people forgetting about the "1 hour must pass since creation" rule, which can really bite with fast hatches.

Posted by: Karatekid5 Jan 19 2018, 12:13 AM

I usually am on GPX Plus the entire day and check my eggs regularly if I happen to be doing something else. I don't know how else I could change my routine.

Posted by: Storskarfen Jan 19 2018, 01:09 AM

Also, if you're clicking a lot of people, more people are going to click you. It's easy to rack up clicks while watching/listening to entertainment.

When it comes to games it just really depends on what you're into.
I know a lot of people who shelled out 60 or more for games I'd say "ehhhhh" to
Also the other way around, there's games I paid full price for to have it on release that some aren't into and are waiting to go down in price.
Overall I rarely regret buying something due to watching trailers, spoiler free early copy reviews, etc etc
If you go in blind then the chance of getting disappointed is much higher with some.

I guess I'm lucky that my taste in games happens to be the ones that tend to cost less (story-driven, platformers, indies, puzzle games). Also, games can take a long time to complete, and since I tend to buy on Steam, they always eventually go on sale, so I can limit my spending on any games that I'll really like but won't blow my socks off right now by thinking of all of the games I already own that are fun that I can get a little further in.

I might check out some more YouTube playthroughs, see how other people handle the game. So far I've only watched like 3 people play it. But I'm preoccupied with other things currently; finals are next week, plus I'm still trying to dig my heels into the Pokemon Live! mystery.

@Storskarfen : My sentiments exactly. What's the point of wasting money on something terrible?

Kinda late replying to this one, but you can grind through the tasks easily if you have a good battle tower team. It takes ~150 wins in the subway if my math is correct. It took me just over 4 hours this time, including several breaks.

Lapras (click to show)

Posted by: Storskarfen Jan 19 2018, 07:34 PM

I never really understood the draw of the battle tower personally. I don't know if I'll ever have those Furfrou combs, even though I've read that battle guide and did my best to follow it.

Posted by: Sportsfan666 Jan 19 2018, 08:39 PM

You can get tons of points if you grind the subway. I normally win 13 battles in a row (11,250 worth of items) or 7 battles in a row (7000 worth of items) and end my streak then reset. I usually sweep 6 or 7 of the 9 leaders every time I go through them. Crits and certain gym leaders make full sweeps hard for me personally, though. There are 4 or 5 gym leaders that aren't based on their "type" too so that tosses things up too.

Posted by: x Luna Jan 20 2018, 01:25 AM

I'm not good at the battle tower either, I haven't even been able to beat any of the npc, although to be fair I haven't tried really hard. I just don't like battle tower/subway/tree in the games, so it's not my priority to be able to win every battle in here, I like collecting (shiny) pokemon way more. Maybe someday I'll try getting those combs, just to complete the dex. I guess it can be fun when you can actually win a lot and have a great team with cool items?

On another note, I'm almost done with task 6 of TBD!!, so if you could help me a little bit by giving this Kecleon a spicy berry (cheri berry) I'd really appreciate it!

I think it's just some kind of coding side-effect. I believe it was initially implemented to highlight Eggs that could form change/hatch with Evolution items?

Also, unrelated, but I've gotten two Sky Gifts today. Who is this that's spoiling me?

Posted by: Sportsfan666 Jan 21 2018, 03:08 AM

https://r.gpx.plus/tWwxZ needs pechas please.

I'm not sure about the italics, either. IIRC, it was all normal until Misquaza was added. After that, Rayquaza was the only egg that had italicized text. People theorized it was to help people find it because a lot of people summoned it to get the new novelty. The site used to just have text descriptions (no image desc) too but I assume they got rid of it to prevent ctrl+f abuse. Shelter eggs also used to show cracks if they had the required maturity. I miss that.

I usually just grind items or exploration Pokemon in the battle tower. I have close to 900k worth of items right now. If anyone still needs the combs, my main tips would be 1. Get a fast single type Pokemon 2. Give it the relevant choice item 3. Try not to switch out unless you are switching into a 1/2 or below move. The majority of gym leaders are extraordinarily easy to beat so you just need to deal with the few that are annoying.

Posted by: Darky Jan 21 2018, 05:38 AM

Hmmm....I'm hunting Alolan Meowth right now and his egg description is italized as well as some of my ongoing shiny hunt mons eggs. Not only that, but also some of my already completed shiny hunt ones. Interesting.

Posted by: koala bear Jan 21 2018, 06:40 AM

In the Vivillion dex, there are 19 alternate sprites.
But when I click the Change sprite, I can't seeanything.
It's my computer's bug, or the game's bug?

Posted by: North Star Jan 21 2018, 06:44 AM

I had to search for a while to find Spades' post explaining the reason for the italics, but I found it!

QUOTE(Spades Slick @ Jun 16 2017, 07:48 PM) *
Whenever changes are made to a Pokemon on the site, the server basically "re-initializes" their egg's lab text. This server uses a different font pack for the text than the previous one did, however, causing the text to be italicized. We recently updated the Gen V Pokemon with their German names, so that caused their egg text to change, too.


This is why at first it was only certain pokémon, and then also gen 5 and the newest mons. So no, not actually intended.

tbh I used to think that when they said "it's nothing special" it was in a "wink wink nudge nudge" way xP.gif


@koala bear Vivillon patterns work like form changes. You need to get flags from the underground.

The 19 probably comes from the number of formes. You can change their formes by using Flags you get from the UG.

The forms don't appear in the Sprite Dex, since each form is considered a "separate" pokemon in the pokedex. Each form has only one sprite (as far as i know)

Ah. Well, I can now start looking for them. I just hatched my SWSH shiny. Not going to do another one officially. Might not even do one UNofficially. And I'm not really expecting to find the new Alola pokemon anytime soon, since I figure people will be breeding the SWSH pokemon for a while, but you never know.

When was the Alola Dex added? The last time I checked the GPX Pokedex, if you divided by generations, Alola didn't show up. I think.

@ x Sam, Ricfule : Thank you both so much! I honestly forgot that Turtonator was even a Pokemon. Never ran into one before, and I've only ever seen one in the trailer for the original Sun and Moon games.

In the Vivillion dex, there are 19 alternate sprites.
But when I click the Change sprite, I can't seeanything.
It's my computer's bug, or the game's bug?

The 19 probably comes from the number of formes. You can change their formes by using Flags you get from the UG.

I already change the pokemon's forms by using Flags, but its Sprite Dex are still 0.
I am very confused, what to do in the end?
Maybe only give up?


The forms don't appear in the Sprite Dex, since each form is considered a "separate" pokemon in the pokedex. Each form has only one sprite (as far as i know)

But there are 19 alternate sprites in this pokemon's dex, so I wonder its sprites. not its different forms.
I mean, I want to fill the dex, not just get the pokemon. But how? Then I don't know. Maybe it's just a bug?

Posted by: Darky Jan 23 2018, 02:32 AM

I think I see what you mean now. You can only change the sprite of Vivillon when it is in it's Meadow Form i.e. it's initial one. If you've changed it with a flag, you'll have to change it back to Meadow first.

Almost at 700 eggs for my SWSH, so I haven't had the chance to look for the new eggs.

You can only change Viv's form by using the options drop down menu like when you want to evolve something.

He means when you click "Change Sprite" on Vivillon (Meadow), you get this screen:
Page-stretching image (click to show)


The Pokedex is misleading because it says there are 19 available sprites to change to. I assume it gets this from the number of form changes, but obviously because they are form changes, the part in the pokedex for Vivillon (Meadow) that says how many sprites you've unlocked will always say "0 of 19". He's already done the form changes, that isn't the issue.

3 days ago. The general amount of eggs is still not that high. Non multiplier days, plus a lot of people are still busy with SWSH.


Doing my part with breeding Comfey and Turtonator as much i can.

If I could give some kind of concrete kudos like Reddit Gold, then I would. I find this post to be simply a-MEW-sing.


@Vande : Congrats on the Mewtwo! I haven't been invited to an Ex Raid yet myself.


On another note, I'm debating on whether or not to actually write out my White nuzlocke as a story [I have about a week away from when I have to get back to work], or just do the normal thing I do where I occasionally post screenshots/text updates. Thing is, I'll be changing plot events [set 20+ years after BW/BW2 here], so I'll have to work that out. Which will be a bit of a pain, since I didn't have much planned beforehand. Has anyone here had previous experience on writing out their Pokemon journeys?

I still need to breed & hatch 33 Finneons until I get the Hatching Insanity achievement and I decided to switch to Comfey afterwards.

I think I just found a Turt & Comfey egg, but they added Shiiotic too? Oooh, can't wait to find it!

Posted by: Wastelander Jan 27 2018, 07:11 AM

Hey do they still do the thing where people who hatch over a given number of eggs for the monthy shiny hunt receive the prize anyway? I can't remember if it was over 500 eggs or what but I'm at 600+ alohan geodude eggs hatched and still no luck. sad.gif

According to the https://gpx.plus/help/swsh/168, if you don't win, you get 1 prize point per 15 eggs you hatch, up to a maximum of 30 point, or 450 eggs hatched. Since you've hatched over 450 eggs, if you don't hatch a shiny you'll receive 30 prize points.

Posted by: Cryptic Lyric Jan 27 2018, 09:55 AM

I should have known that going for a second SWSH hunt was not going to go well. Loving the high multiplier today, though.

I've been trying to get back into PokeGo the last few days. I work at a gas station, so there's always a lot of stuff that spawns there. I can't wait for the weather to be warmer here so I can actually go out and play it again.

Posted by: Mikaku Onchi Jan 27 2018, 03:39 PM

Thank you for adding these new pokemon to the site!!! I love Morelull and just hatched the first shiny Comfey of Gpx which made my day of course ;D.

Posted by: Karatekid5 Jan 27 2018, 05:18 PM

The new Pokemon have started appearing more in the shelter so I was able to grab them all without much trouble! Though Comfey still is a bit rarer than the others. Either way, it feels good to have my Pokedex back up to date. cat.gif

In the mean time, just hit 900 eggs for the SWSH. This multiplier has been amazing but I'm still pretty worried.

Posted by: Luneon Jan 27 2018, 05:36 PM

We're still missing Wimpod, Golisopod.

Posted by: Cryptic Lyric Jan 27 2018, 06:04 PM

I think I like the small, unannounced drops of new mons more than some big expansion. A little at a time make jump when I see a mystery egg.

I sent out a bunch of sky gifts earlier, so I hope they were good!

Now that I'm a bit more active on the site, I'm resuming my Valentacool hunt. Hopefully my luck with shiny novelty hunts holds, because I haven't had one that's taken more than like 150 eggs.

Posted by: Zabimaru Jan 27 2018, 08:34 PM

Finally! Shiny Alolan Meowth! Took me long enough grin.gif Now I can kidnap some of the Honey Plus for my other hunts grin.gif With Luck I can finish another hunt before the end of the month.

Maybe next month will work on some badge achievements <.<


Oh and yaaay...shiny klink! (Got the shiny klink achievement and the hatch 2 shinies in 1 day achievement)

Though anyone else ever feel kind of bummed to finally hatch a shiny? Like I was all "yay" until I realized...200 more eggs would have hit the achievement for getting a shiny after 1k eggs...and 700 more eggs would have gotten me hatching insanity. Yes..I'm a little bitter about getting shiny klink NOW xD

Derp, I got my evo sequence backwards - haven't played an actual Pokemon game since gen 3 (which I still haven't finished, actually), so I get the newer generations confused.

So yes, I meant Morelull's egg, but technically it's possible to find an evolved Morelull in the shelter...

I found a Morelull in the shelter and bred about 45-60 eggs with it (donated all but 2 to the shelter). Hopefully that helps, and now I'm breeding Sneasel for my hunt again xD

I also finished my Shiny Alolan Meowth hunt tonight, PHEW!

Posted by: PokeNOM NOM NOM Jan 28 2018, 08:39 AM

I've been recovering from a meniscus surgery the last two weeks, I'm finally walking without crutches (and with confidence) again now!

I've finished 2 SWSH hunts this month, hoping to still add a shiny Alolan Meowth to my collection.
Good luck of you still hunting!

I finally got my blue meowth! I thought I was not going to make it this time around and it was going to be another eternal hunt like with Rowlet, but thankfully I got one. I'm not that interested in trying to get another one, but I'll take advantage of the honey+ for my other hunts.

Oh, and I also love Comfey's sprite and egg!! It's so cute and beautiful, I also like the other new ones, I'm just missing Rockruff new evolution, I think. Thank you for dropping the new pokemon, it was a nice surprise finding them in the shelter!

Congrats on the shiny Comfey! I was wondering who was going to get it first. Also, I'm happy to hear you're recovering, Pokenom Nom Nom.

I suspect I won't win this month's SWSH; been too busy trying to work out plot holes in Coruscate to hatch many Eggs. EDIT: Also, may as well add to this post, I just found a shiny Liepard while grinding to face Clay in White version.

Posted by: Cryptic Lyric Jan 28 2018, 09:32 PM

Well, I nabbed my second SWSH shiny today! Took exactly 100 eggs less than the first. Don't think I'm going to try my luck going for a third with only a few days left. It will definitely be nice to use Honey+ for my other hunts.

I've been playing Stardew Valley all day. I kind of lost track/interest in the file I had that was already in year 3, so I started from scratch to build a new farm on a new map. Hoping to have it pretty far along for whenever they have the multiplayer addition.

I usually use the Poke Walker for shiny pokemon, to evolve pokemon faster, and especially for exploration pokemon and the pokehunt, it's faster than the mobile walker in my case.

I like to level up my Pokemon to 100, minus some that are needed for explos that require lesser levels. Usually I level up my shinies, legendaries, novelties, and other pokemon to keep like good IV's pokes and GEN 7 pokes for exemple. And I always use the pokewalker happy.gif

Im haviing shiny luck this month! First got my SWSH Alolan Meowth. Then the same day finished my really long, ongoing klink hunt. Now just finished a quick hunt that I randomly started for Blue Magikarp...it looks almost iridescent <3

Now my question is...do the special novelty magikarp (im assuming they are based on magikarp jump or whatever that app was called) evolve...and if they do do they all evolve into normal gyarados or a special one based on their color?

I don't think so. The easy way to find out is to check the Dex info of the specialty Karp.

EDIT - I didn't see a PokeBall on the View Dex info page, so it looks like they don't evolve.

I did a quick search on the wiki to check myself...and I guess the novelty karps dont evolve. Kind of a bummer but oh well at least I have the gorgeous shiny right? XD ...feel kind of bad though. The person who bred it was also hunting it and has hatched around 90 with no shinies. Meanwhile I'm lowkey hunting them beside the SWSH and my longtime hunts...and managed to hatch it in like 37 eggs xD

Now just need to find my shiny Popplio, Litten, and Rowlett ...then it will be time to work on badge achievements again xD

2 more, it's 100.
I'm very looking forward to the day arrive!

I've been leveling up pokes in the Poke Walker for years now and I've finally leveled up all that I wanted to. Do y'all always keep a poke in the walker, and if so, what do you put in? Just failed shinies until an exploration poke needs it?

Also, please give my pixels other pixels in the form of a Pecha: https://r.gpx.plus/ZvaLZ


I generally don't use the Poke Walker for anything but Explorations/trying to level compatible Daycare pairs. I just don't feel like I have much to gain from it, I rarely Dress Up my mons and I already have the Over 9,000 Achievement.

..Also, I've been trying to sketch out some Pokemon recently in what little free time I have just so I could see how they'd look in my style, and it makes me realize that even with references, I can, quite legitimately, barely draw a Weedle.

Happy February, people! Looks like the site had a hiccup earlier, not sure what was up with that, but I'm hoping it's a sign that this month will be full of good luck and shinies.

I'm guessing the Charjabugs I've been seeing around. ^-^

Posted by: Darky Feb 1 2018, 04:19 AM

Interesting/ I've been expecting to find it at least in special evo items and it is just in regular/ And you can buy it for pointa, not prize points. I wonder, how we can get this item after we'l lbe unable to buy it? I've snagged 10 extra just in case.I don't remember we had something like that before.

Posted by: Luneon Feb 1 2018, 07:02 AM

I think that if you give the tv show a watch you will have an idea what that item could refer to.
I hope it does refer to that because I liked that idea a lot.

Should have seen that the new item was available in the Main Shop before wasting 50 Prize Points. facepalm.gif

I did the same. Didn't even think to check the regular Shop since it was a prize. And of course, now that I've gotten mine, I see the post in the other thread that says it is an option in both locations. Oh well.

EDIT - Changed a few words since it didn't fit.

Posted by: Luneon Feb 1 2018, 01:40 PM

I was lucky to read it in the February thread before buying any ^^;
Was curious to see what got released first

Finally have the sound issue on my "new" laptop fixed. I was too exhausted to do it myself so I got some help.
The downside of knowing how to do all this stuff yourself: you waste all your energy fixing stuff you'd normally pay someone to do for you.
Plus it's safer to keep such things within the family. Don't want someone I can't trust to install weird stuff I didn't ask for.

Same. Spent 0 prize points and bought 10 car keys in regular shop.

Posted by: MiyukoKaioh Feb 1 2018, 05:33 PM

I spent 10 Prize Points first because I didn't expect it to appear in the normal shop aswell.

I haven't watched the anime since the Orange Islands episodes (either in the late 90s or early 00s) so I don't know what this is about. The forms look cool though happy.gif.

Posted by: Gato Feb 1 2018, 11:59 PM

Well, I missed the keys in the shop, but I did get a shiny Meowth, so I have one set at least.

I also finally beat Cagney Carnation, so I have that going for me, which is nice!

Posted by: RicFule Feb 2 2018, 12:18 AM

I got my first non-Cosmog Wormhole earlier. I already have a copy of the pokemon from there, but a shiny chance is a shiny chance.

@Gato: Well, the item is still in the Prize shop if'n you don't really want to wait for it to cycle back in to the Main shop.

I haven't watched the TV shows since the original seasons in the 90s, lol. Just hasn't been available to me.
Heck, I'm 4+ gens behind in the game because I just got my first DS...the only reason I know anything about Pokemon after gen 3 is because of GPX and the other Pokemon hatchables site I play.

Car Key is normal evolution item and will be in regular shop forever like all other evolution items. Just active "Purchase Power" and go buy it or wait till next rotation.
"Be sure to check back frequently, as our stock is rotated at 6 AM and 6 PM every day, server time!"

It's part of the Sun/Moon anime, you should be able to find it on several sites (if you're interested that is)

There's several sites with the episodes (unfortunately the majority is Japanese with English subtitles, and a part is English spoken)
If you google "pokemon sun and moon episode *nr* " or "sun moon anime sub" you should be able to find it easily.

Yay! Finally got all the new car bugs, they're pretty awesome, congrats to the maker, those are pretty good sprites, and really fun too. I bought like 15 key cars just in case.

Also, I'm on task 12 of TBD!!, so please please give this Giratina a pecha berry (Sweet) when you can:

Having the flu sucks. I haven't been out of the house since thursday. Been on the couch all day. Had my parents take my four year old so he doesn't get sick. I did get pokemon crystal for my 3ds so I'll probably play through that. I'm off work and have nothing else better to do. I've been watching criminal minds today. Halfway through the second season now.

Posted by: Zabimaru Feb 4 2018, 05:05 AM

So I think my 3yr old brought home a new cold virus (from headstart) about a week ago...me, him, and his grandma all sound the same now (wet mucousy cough, runny nose etc) ...which means that I literally got sick AGAIN before completely getting over the cold his brother (my 6yr old) brought home the week before! I know its different because the first cold was basically a few days of runny nose followed by a persistent DRY cough. Just as soon as it appeared the cough was going away it got worse and then my nose starting running again...about the time my little man started showing signs of sickness.

Almost makes one want to homeschool just so you can have your kids avoid the walking petri dishes at their school...you know...the ones who's parents send obviously sick kids to school because they cant be bothered to find a baby sitter?

On the other hand I found a random Prof. Cypress bred Palkia egg in the shelter so I'm stupidly happy rn xD Also my shiny Klingklang is "sick" too ...as in it has pkrs xD

Posted by: Cycloneblaze Feb 4 2018, 07:42 PM

Usually I'm not that into novelties from the anime, since I don't watch it, and I'd prefer ones inspired by other sources (I know there's fewer of those, I thnk we did get one sometime last year, though?). But - I'm loving this Charjabug one, it's really neat. I wasn't expecting there to be five forms! Just wish that one was a proper bus shape, lol. grin.gif

Posted by: MiyukoKaioh Feb 5 2018, 12:50 PM

I made many trinket offers in the Trinket Market sesterday and almost all of them were accepted until now. Thank you everyone for accepting them! I'm happy about it because there were many R5+ trinkets among them. Only 707 more to go! happy.gif

Posted by: x Luna Feb 7 2018, 12:08 AM

So today is my birthday, yay! Yesterday I got a random sh. shroomish.gif, she's the cutest thing, so I'll consider that my GPX present lol

I work from home, so I hope that they completely forget about me today so I can go have fun with my family.

Also, I've noticed that Stufful eggs are not a common pokemon to find in the shelter, I don't know if its because they're so popular or if it's because not many people are breeding them. Once I finish my Zergoose hunt I'll breed some for sure.

After nearly 3 years since it was first introduced, I have officially obtained every single Ancient Plate. Thanks to this past Poke Hunt, I got my final Fist Shard from my 137IV Kommo-o snagging first place. I can now go after another Arceus, when I get the urge to redo the exploration that is omgyay.gif.

I'm off this weekend, so I'll be spending much of it playing Monster Hunter World. I bought it a few days ago and I've been hooked on it ever since. I've been a Switch Axe main ever since Monster Hunter 4 and I still love using it. I'm currently working on getting to Hunter Rank 9 and I should have it sometime during my playthrough this weekend.

Congrats on the Shroomish! It's a simple shiny, but the colors are still nice. And happy [late] birthday.

Also, this is off-topic, but knowing that Ezra Pound took literally 2 years to write a poem that's only a few lines long ["In The Metro"] makes me feel marginally better about having a mental breakdown over writing nearly twenty chapters in two weeks.

What are you playing on? I'm running the Insect Glaive right now - I've got the Rotten Vale main-ish quest to do (Rabodaan) which I'm reluctant to do right now as I've got like a billion investigations to do and it's stressing me out sad.gif

Also still running away from Rathalos too lol!

Are some of you watching series and movies on Netflix?
I only recently started, and enjoying some series so far:

I'm on PS4(if you are talking about systems that is). If you are talking about quests I just finished hunting Rathalos and Diablos to move on with the story. I spent most of the weekend grinding to get the Legiana parts so I could upgrade my Switch Axe while working on those quests.

Rathalos is a pain in the backside in this game, oh my god it's even more annoying that it was in MHG! I'm so glad that they kept mounting as a mechanic because it helps TREMENDOUSLY. I still don't like Diablos, the underground attack when he comes up is annoying, but it was much better than Rathalos XD.

Altered Carbon is pretty good. I enjoyed it a lot. Something about future sci fi and cyberpunk type stuff gets me really exciting.

Brooklyn Nine Nine is pretty good! Black Mirror, Narcos, and Better Call Saul are all amazing too.

Going for both the Kick-Ass and Superman Achivements at the same time, though I haven't had much luck with either of them since Cloysterman keeps getting bad match-ups. But I'll always keep trying! cat.gif

Been doing a lot of shiny hunting in Ultra Sun lately and got lucky with an SOS Torkoal in 23 encounters! With Body Slam and Lava Plume both inflicting status I expected it to be an annoying hunt, so I'm glad I got it early!

Posted by: Running On Ice Feb 14 2018, 01:30 AM

Hard to believe that we're now one year shy of a whole decade on here. I joined in April of 2009 and I'm surprised that I have stayed on here for so long. I was able to get an Ice Memory when I logged in today and I pretty much have almost all the Silvally I saved up evolved. I even ran out of Lemonades raising their happiness. I'm hoping to get a good IV'd Ice-type so I can place and get another one!

Also Happy Valentine's (or Singles Awareness) Day! <3

Posted by: AkaruTheYoshi Feb 14 2018, 04:30 AM

Wow, nine whole years of GPX. Feels like a whole lifetime ago I found this place on some random forum, it's almost surreal. I'll have to hatch myself a Shiny Type:Null soon to take advantage of the new Memory disks, hopefully RNG will be kind.

Okay this is a really silly question. I saw that we have the 3+s all day (Hatch,Honey,and Trinket) But when I used a honey it subtracted from what I owned. It says I have 2 Honey's left even with Honey+ active. Anyone else having this problem. (I used it at 9:15 ish this morning... So about 3 minutes ago)

If you want to save your honey, I suggest stop using it until you see that it is fixed by either keeping up with the forums or seeing x999 in your inventory. There was a little hiccup when implementing the triple+ I suppose. https://forums.gpx.plus/index.php?showtopic=75317&view=findpost&p=2488191.

Posted by: Mikaku Onchi Feb 16 2018, 08:39 PM

Hello there! I always forget to post here but I keep checking this thread to see how you guys are going.
On my side, I've finished the Johto league on Pokémon Crystal (VC) and am now SRing for a shiny Celebi. I'm praying RNG gods to be generous with me and give me my so desired pink onion fairy soon despite the so so low shiny rate.
I don't know if anyone remembers but, I made a post about not being able to get any shinies on my pokemon ultra moon game since around the time the first update came out. Well, as soon as I asked my sister for her 3ds to check if it was bad luck on my part whatsoever, I got 2 shinies in the same day???? I updated the game again, to version 1.2 and I really hope this time I can actually hunt on my 3ds again.

Also, I want to thank the staff for the Silvally's memories. Silvally is a great looking pokemon, I love it so much. I got myself a Dragon Memory on Wednesday and could grab an Ice one from the pokehunt.

Posted by: Storskarfen Feb 17 2018, 03:52 PM

I've started the infamous task 11. Hopefully I can get enough progress between today and tomorrow that it's not painful. I like giving the pokemon (mostly) rhyming names.

I recently joined Hello Fresh and made the first meal--a pork dish--last night. It was fantastic! My mouth is watering thinking about the other ones!

I'm trying to hatch a suitable Carbink for this week's hunt. I'm suspicious though because I've only had one slot.

Posted by: Mikaku Onchi Feb 24 2018, 01:35 PM

@Storskarfen 3 pokes with PKRS IS something to feel special about definitely. I've never had that happening to me, it's cool haha.

I've finally did the 2nd explo of the month. I did 'A Trio of Trials' in the beginning of February and 'Babysitting Adventure' now. I really like the latest because it doesn't have any of the tasks I don't like to do happy.gif Plus it's another try at a shiny I love.

I haven't been trying much at Shiny Celebi in Pokémon Crystal. Guess I'll pick some anime and SR while watching it.

Also, does someone have Lovestitute Plush and/or Valentinium Z trinkets? I'm missing those and am willing to trade any duplicate I have of any rarity for these.

I'm sad. I was hunting Minior cores in UltraSun and found a shiny Beldum. Had it into the red with Take Down disabled, and it used Struggle, before I had a chance to either use Hypnosis or throw a PokeBall at it. Of course, it then fainted. But I have gotten all my Minior cores now, minus the shiny, which I'm not looking for.

Nope. No Master Ball. I'm still running through the game. Only on the third island. Even if I had had it, I wouldn't have used it, since I keep my Master Balls for Legendary pokemon.

Oh, i see. What a shame. Beldum family line is what i always dread to catch, thanks to their capture rate of 3, like most legendaries.

That also reminds of me failing to catch a shiny Kangaskhan in the Great marsh safari zone, in Platinum. That was around 2010 or 2011.
I was so mad then. And continue to hope i'll never see a safari zone shiny ever again, no matter the game.

I'm sad. I was hunting Minior cores in UltraSun and found a shiny Beldum. Had it into the red with Take Down disabled, and it used Struggle, before I had a chance to either use Hypnosis or throw a PokeBall at it. Of course, it then fainted. But I have gotten all my Minior cores now, minus the shiny, which I'm not looking for.


Idk if this helps, but try to find a Harvest pokemon (Exeggutor is perfect) and teach it bestow and skill swipe. Give it a leppa berry, then use bestow on the pokemon you'd like to give it to and then use skill swipe on it. Then it will never run out of moves.
Hope this helps grin.gif

I don't think it would have helped. The only move I saw Beldum use was Take Down. And since Take Down gives recoil damage, I used Disable, stopping it. Then, when it attacked again, it was Struggle for having no moves.

Sh*t you're right I forgot its only move was take down. https://www.reddit.com/r/pokemon/comments/5l2auw/my_guide_to_sos_chaining_a_shiny_beldum/'s a good S.O.S chaining method I found on reddit. If you still want to search for a shiny beldum that is lol. I'm wondering, this site used to be a kind of platform for pokemon trading right? Idk, why not bring that back? Or at least make pokemon trading threads? I've got some shinies and other good pokemon I wouldn't mind sharing...

How's it going fellas? Been a while since I last posted!

Some major shit's gone down in the past few months.

First off, my old cat of ~10 year ended up passing away during November. I miss the grouchy old bastard, but my new cat helps fill that hole. Ended up calling her Rosa after Rosa Luxemburg.

Had to go back to school to finish off year 12. Shouldn't be there any longer until the end of the term (so about mid-April), and then that's it, hopefully.

Lastly, my parents ended up splitting after 20, nearly 25 years of being together. Not terribly shocked, seen that coming for half a decade now.

Anyway, yeah, how are you lot? Anything big?

Man. I'm sorry for your loss. Losing a pet is never easy. Beautiful name for Rosa, though!

Good luck with finishing school, too! I still find it hard to believe I'm out of school, and it's been 3 years!! If only the teachers could see how much time I waste on games. :')

Good morning and welcome to March everybody!

I know I've been persona non-grata for quite some time; it's been a very busy start to the new year for me and the fun hasn't quite slowed down. Given that, I did want to come out here and hope that I can come back and stick to it. blush.gif Here's hoping.

I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your cat, Gigadweeb. Loosing a pet is never easy especially when you've had so much time with it and you've grown attached. Even the crazy, stupid ones we miss terribly. ((( hugs ))) Hopefully your new furry friend will fill the void and make you smile more. And good luck with finishing school. It also sounds like your family is going through some major changes as well. Expected or not I'm sure there will be more road bumps along the way as you all work to figure out the new dynamics. If it hasn't been happy, hopefully that will now come once the adjustment has settled.

My youngest went back to public school in January as well. Online turned out to be a huge positive for her self esteem, but the grades were a direct opposite. And what an uneasy time for any kid to be in public schools currently. I still remember the only things that I feared when I went to school was how the boy was going to overreact when he heard I liked him (an overreact he really did!!). Safety on a huge scale was never even an after thought, unless you probably lived in, for example, Tornado Alley or a coastal school during hurricane season. To think we have to fear the unknown from fellow students is still mind boggling to me. *sigh*

My husband also changed jobs, but this was a complete profession change. He's a truck driver now and, for the most part, enjoys it tremendously. The backing up part leaves a lot to be desired as it takes him twice as long (just about) as the regular truckers, but he does get it in the end. He just says it sucks and he hates that part of it. Sounds a lot like my minutes. I hate having to do them but I have to get them done. Ugh. He's gone a week at a time though and that truly reeks, but we're making it work and hanging in there.

I should be getting a new car "soon". I was rear ended back on December 7th and the insurance (took 2 months) said that the car was a total. We finally got those figures yesterday and I'm hoping we'll have good luck car shopping this weekend. Not sure if we'll walk away (or ride away more likely) with a new used car off the lot or not, but I'm really hoping so!

I'm going to work extra hard to finish my current exploration. I'm through the worse of it and just need to speed click to be done. So.... here's hoping that works out.

I didn't expect this month's Shiny Hunts to come so early! And I was so surprised that this month don't have voting.

Posted by: Asbel Lhant Mar 1 2018, 07:15 PM

Well my first 10% Zygarde hatched and I already finished the Yveltal exploration so that egg is sitting in my party. I'm trying to get all of the monthly explorations done before the end of this week. Work has been getting slightly busy again thanks to customers stocking up on Easter stuff.

I had quite a few errands to do today. I had an appointment to get my taxes done earlier this morning. Thankfully, this year I actually got a refund unlike last year where I had to pay in. They also took whatever I owed from my return so that's one less bill to worry about. I picked up a few groceries and paid my phone bill. After that I made lasagna for supper and helped mom dye her hair.

Started the Xerneas exploration now that I get a chance to relax. Xerneas needs some berries, its hungry:

So it looks like Electrike, Lillipup, and Snubbull are the choices for this months SWSH. I think I will start off with Electrike, gonna try to put in a good start for Malachite once again! happy.gif

That's what I chose as well. Since it's the only one I know the shiny colors of. And I like the blue.

Thank you! She was originally going to be called Mittens. Figured it might be nicer to have a more unique name, you know?

I can't blame you with wasting time on games ahaha, I think my break was split like three-way between Skyrim, FO4 and PUBG

Thank you! I hope your youngest eventually has an easier time with it, I can definitely relate to her problems with grades. Fortunately I'm from Australia, so the idea of gun-related crime is a foreign idea to me. I really hope one day in the future the US is able to sort out some sort of gun control and cultural shift that leaves most happy.

It's good to hear your husband is enjoying his new job for the most part, even with the absences. Hopefully something comes down the line where those week-long trips aren't as common.

Posted by: Gigadyne Mar 2 2018, 03:05 AM

Oh, i like the picks for this SWSH. Going to try get all three, starting with Snubbull.

Are they not doing a new community thread every month anymore?


Oooh, I also just got my 2nd wormhole event, and the egg isn't Cosmog =O OOOH NEW EGG <3
Can't wait to see what it is ^^

I'm also excited for the SWSH, gonna go for Electrike! <3

Posted by: PokeNOM NOM NOM Mar 2 2018, 05:28 AM

I have 2/3 SWSH options, so I'll be going the one I don't have first: Lillipup. I've been wanting one for a while, so that's great!
If I'm lucky enough to find that shiny, I'll probably go for another shiny Electrike, I really like those. ^^

Managed to participate in this week's Pokéhunt (I always seem to forget those...).
Aaaand I've hatched enough Zygarde Cells to get a 10% Zygarde.

What are you guys doing today?
I'll probably have a relaxing day at home, maybe do a bit of tidying up.
I have a week off this week, so it's nice having some time to just be slow. ^^

Posted by: Darky Mar 2 2018, 06:07 AM

Oh, i've read for all your recent post- guys, there is a lot of things going in your lives. I wish you to sort out every bit of it and stay positive and collected for this month!
I've been dealing with sme weird feeling of being not needed at all.weird feeling. I've missed almost a month of my MA studies, it has never happeed before , but I just couldn't force myself to go anywhere. I did a lot of things around my house ,errands, cleaning and ther stuff - not helping at all. Even my hobbies bring me no enjoement at all*sighs* I hate to complain about such stuff and I do understand that there are situations far more diffucult than mine.

Nope. The new threads stopped with the egg giveaways. It's just the single thread now.
