A thought came to me as I was searching the shelter for parentless novelties to complete breeding pairs. With so many novelties floating around the site and more being created every month, there's a plethora of options when it comes to new novelty explorations. We've had some events that allowed users to have a chance at obtaining certain novelties, but there's still plenty that (at least, imo) could use some love~

For the sake of ease and sanity, here's a list of likely candidates that are currently available in no particular order (spoilered because it's a long list). I'll attempt to keep this list updated.

Spoiler (click to showhide)


This list does include:
- Pokemon with no exploration, of course.
- Pokemon that currently have no method to obtain a parentless novelty.
- Pokemon that can be obtained by Egg Vouchers or Voucher Items (ie: Sh. Race Prize Voucher, Old Rod/Easter Egg/Halloween Candy/etc). The Treasures of Orange Island and Solid Dreams explorations mean all novelties obtained by SWSH prizes are on the table~

This list does not include:
- Novelties that are obtained by using an item on an existing egg/Pokemon (ie: Corruption Orb/Chocolate Bar/Caps/Saltwater Bucket/Dreidel/etc.) since those would likely become item explorations.
- Pokemon obtained through Random Events (Missingno/Korechu/etc).
- Fossils since they're pretty easily obtained in the prize shop without much hassle.

It's far from an exhaustive list and the staff are the ones that choose what gets an exploration in the end. I just figured this would be a fun thing to discuss. So I'm curious, which ones are you anticipating/secretly hoping get their own novelty exploration? Speculations, theories, ideas for possible tasks, any discussions are welcome~

I would love an easier way to obtain Eevee [Heart]! When I realized it was in the Pokedex I was stumped on how to get one, since it has doesn't have a connection to the canon Eevee (in the sense that it doesn't form change from canon Eevee). I was eagerly looking for it even though I didn't know what to look for, and luckily I grabbed one from the Safari Zone a little while ago. I still don't have the egg data, but I've heard it's like Bidofo in that its design looks the like original. Since it's so hard to tell which egg is which, it would be nice to have a guaranteed way of obtaining an egg. (Because Bidofo has its own exploration, too!)

As for tasks, since it's based on a female starter Eevee from Let's Go, I think tasks involving Pokemon happiness and female-only Pokemon would be fitting. I don't think we've ever had a "raise a Pokemon to X happiness" task but I think it could work. Have a Pokemon locked to your party as if it's "feed the Pokemon X berries" and wait it out, or if you're impatient, give it a drink. And then maybe "obtain Khangaskhan/Miltank." I could also see a battle task against Trace and his Pikachu in the mix. Ahh, I'm getting so excited just thinking about the possibilities! The story itself might be about you and Trace imagining the start of your journey, so the battle task with him would be more about talking about how you would win rather than an actual battle.

(It's been a little over two weeks since the last post so I might be close to necroposting, but I don't believe I am since my contribution is responding to the discussion. If I am, I'm sorry in advance!)

I really like this idea, even more so considering the egg image is identical to the original. Your best bet at the moment is to get lucky finding the egg randomly in the shelter.

I also like the idea of using the Let's Go storyline for tasks. The first one could be a step task(interactions) to get to the lab. The next could be obtaining a (female) Eevee, then raising its happiness to max or feed it X amount of berries to befriend it, maybe a lvl 25 battle with Trace. For the Kangaskhan/Miltank task, it could be a 'help the neighbor' scenario. There could even have some of Team Rocket plot in there utilizing battle, interaction, and find the special item tasks. The final task could be a lvl 75/100 battle with Trace at the Pokemon League.

As far as I know, Necroing is usually for posts a few months to a few years old, so I think you're alright.

Good suggestion about the shelter; I hover over Eevee eggs to see if they say "Mystery egg" when I remember to, but no luck so far! I've already completed the shiny Eeveelutions so I don't plan on mass grabbing Eevee eggs any time soon, which makes looking for Eevee [Heart] eggs harder (since it won't happen by accident). I eventually plan on breeding my own anyway to try to shiny hunt it.

I think your idea for tasks is better. I forgot there was a precedent for having a "wild Pokemon" locked to your party that's the same species as the exploration's reward. A barebones version of the Let's Go storyline could work really well! Though I guess if the exploration is based on Let's Go, there shouldn't be a Miltank involved. But I do like the rival and Team Rocket battles idea!

I'm new to forums (not just GPX but in general) so even though I think I was ok, I wanted to be cautious of the rules around necroposting. I'm still getting used to things!

Yeah, I'm not sure how egg rotations work in the shelter (whether the same one show up every refresh until someone grabs it or if it's randomly decided when there's multiples of the same egg available). I would guess the best to hope for outside constantly hovering is pay attention to if you see two 'eevee' eggs showing up in the shelter at the same time. I remember that used to be a good indicator for Bidofo before you could hover for names.

Something that could replace the Miltank could be a 'have a Slowpoke in the party' task since I remember one lady in Pewter City would let you watch her Slowpoke once a day to get a Pearl or something as a reward.

Also, it's always a good thing to be cautious when you're new somewhere so you don't step on any toes, so to speak. You should be alright, the staff and mods are good at telling the difference between someone being a jerk and a genuine mistake.

Kryduck...please.

It's been months and I've seen a grand total of one Kryduck in the shelter and I refreshed over it.
