Back in the day, we had SO few Novelties that were actually hard to find! I loved the challenge of trying to find the handful of them, but now there's too damn many! Dracowymzy, derp, zergoose, EB, and Slime Slugma were THE goal of novelty hunter, and as someone who is a big novelty hunter these 100 or so novelties kinda irritate me now xD

Back in my day, GPX+ had...

-no safari zone, but pokemon in the shelter, among the eggs. A few, and I wanted to adopt them all because they were so sad
=(
-the only way to get a mew was with an egg distribution event.
-Bidofo was a pure rarity.
-I had to open 100 tabs to click and then my computer froze because it couldn't stand the loading, so I tried less, and the only way to not freeze was 15 tabs, pretty slow... xD
-egg events were at reset time
-ditto was impossible to find 8D
-5G new pokemon eggs were on the dream world, a zone next to safari and shelter, eggs were without colors, so we picked up eggs without knowing what it was.

Scavenger Hunts were introduced before Pass Powers, so there was no Influence Power for tasks that required a Pokémon with a specific nature. You either grabbed a lot of eggs and hoped one popped out with the nature you wanted, or said, "screw this, I'm out".

Haha! I see Im not the only one happy.gif . I joined in April 2009, played for a while when indeed, Dracowymsy's and Dittos were rare, and hunting in the Egg Shelter was the way to get Novelties. Just reading through all the posts here made me remember the things from way back when ^^.

I recently started playing again after a friend of mine accidentally clicked the quicklink in my Firefox (said link has been there for the same 6 years) and I figured 'Oh, I might as well check it out again.'

So there is such a big load of new stuff I'm feeling a bit walloftext.gif , but it's also really cool to see. And I like the increase in novelties too happy.gif, I loved those when I played ages ago.

Onwards to exploring and learning about all the (for me) new things!

I remember the first time I saw a lot of hatched Pokemon in the shelter (when we had no safari zone) was that massive ban drop. That was super weird back then. Now we always have that many and no one cares anymore.

I remember when Arceus weren't everywhere. Seriously, it was an incredible feeling to get one. Of course, I never got one, but it's fun to dream.

Also, Megas being RIDICULOUSLY rare. Back in '14 you only had one or two, maybe 3 mega stones. I think someone was getting a bunch of Mega Charizard Ys and releasing them for everyone, like a Mega factory or something.

...I joined in 2009, came back last night, and went through this entire thread going "Wait, you mean we don't still do that?"

That said, back in my day, I had two Slime Slugmas and bred them and I felt like the coolest kid on the block for having one of five novelties as a breeding pair. And I opened everyone's eggies and Pokémon in new tabs AND I LIKED IT. (old person screams at cloud)

I too remember when the lab wasn't swarmed with like 50 million eggs

I also remember when you could click on eggs in the shelter and people had 9/10 times claimed them already

I've been thinking that Professor Benchpress should be a Battle Tower NPC.

Remember when Professor Cypress used to breed random legendaries? I was lucky enough to snatch one from the Shelter one day - a Deoxys whose heritage page is a broken link now. Still one of my favorite Pokemon that I own.

The other thing about Lab is that if you wanted to summon a legendary you just needed to put a word 'bizzare' and you will find your egg cause it was highlighted!

Right now egg description is an image so you can't do it no more sad.gif


EDIT: And that monthly distribution which was the only way to get a non-summonable legendary Pokemons! There were so many emotions during that thing haha! I remember being happy as I got my Entei back in 2010, and what's better, IT HATCHED SHINY!

I first joined back in 2009. I saw a party image in the signature of a psypokes forum member, and was immediately curious about the site. The first Event Pokemon I got was a Lugia. I remember being around when chests were first introduced--I was actually one of the first to get an orb. Then I failed in summoning the legendary shakefist.gif

Back in my day, we had KORTSAHNKK before shiny hunts/races became a thing.

Also, the Goodfellows Fiasco.

Can you explain those, please? I don't think I was around when they happened.

I remember when the Daycare gave out experience like in the games. I have a Castform/Rotom breeding pair that got to level 100 in there.
