August Community Thread!


The July Community thread has been moved here.

If you're new here then don't be shy! The community thread is the place to come and chat with fellow members of the site who share a common interest with you. Talk about whatever you want, whether it's GPX related or something going on in your personal life, just be sure to read the rules first before posting. There's always someone on the forums to read and respond to your posts, so chat away and maybe you'll meet some great people!

Rules
  • Regular forum rules still apply here. Basically don't double post. Don't ask for clicks every time you fill your party. Unless it gets out of hand*, I'm okay with you linking to an exploration Pokemon who needs a specific berry.

    *out of hand meaning I don't want to see Pokémon being linked just for leveling or if they need drinks for happiness. These kinds of interactions can be handled just fine by being in your parties and signatures.

  • Do not post your shinies here, there's a shiny thread for that. Discussing them is OK though! Just make sure you add content to your post.

  • Make sure your post contains worthwhile content. If you're posting an exploration Pokémon to be fed berries then be sure to add other content to your post. Same with discussing shinies. Find people to reply to or start a discussion yourself! Your post must, with the shiny portion and berry feeding hypothetically removed*, not read as if you're talking to yourself. To clarify, your post should not be an out-loud thought to yourself, and should contain more general discussion than just information on your current shiny luck.

    *if you were to read your post, skipping over any mention of shinies, the post should still sound like a good post.

    If any posts are found breaking this rule then they will be instantly deleted and handed a 10% warn.

  • Do not post your GPX+ gear grinders in this thread either. There's also a thread for that. This is mostly for raging at staff or site events that you don't like.

    Hopefully helpful examples! (click to show)

  • Do not litter your post with swear words.

  • Memes and Gifs are allowed, but don't overuse them. If the thread turns into nothing but meme and gif replies, I'll give everyone a 10% warn that was involved because it's just plain out spam! Make sure you put these in a spoiler tag.

  • No quote pyramids! Be sure to cut out everything that was before what you're replying to. They can get long and make a page annoying to scroll through, so be considerate to your fellow members!

  • A post must be AT LEAST one sentence long. If you’re saying hi or bye to someone be sure to add something more to your post.

  • If you'd like to advertise something, then be sure you put it in your signature. Youtube, Deviantart (No smut), Fanfication (No smut), Twitch, adoptable sites, your own minecraft servers are all fine. If you Live stream give a heads up that you're live, but be sure to add content. Don't just link dump. Send a PM if you have any questions about anything else!
Monthly Raffle

Nominations are now gone, and I'm using post count to determine how many entries you have into the raffle. The first 19 posts you have will count as one entry, and every ten after that will count as an extra. Think of it as the first number of your post count is how many entries you have. To see what your post count is, click on the number of replies any certain thread has. Nothing else on the site will influence the amount of entries you receive, so if you'd like a chance to win, then post here frequently!

The raffle is what chooses who gets to choose what's in next month's egg distribution. There are no other site advantages other than that, and even then the whole site gets a chance at that Pokémon that you chose!

August Egg Distribution!


How to get an egg from this event
  • You must keep at least one slot open in your party.
  • You MUST have logged in sometime on GPX+ in the last two weeks.
  • You can not be in the restricted group.
IMPORTANT EVENT NOTES
  1. No, you do NOT have to be online at the time I am sending out eggs.
  2. These eggs do NOT show up in the Lab for the event. They are sent out randomly.
  3. There is ONE set shiny for each Pokémon, but every other egg has a regular chance of being shiny.
  4. If you obtain ONE of the eggs from this event, you will NOT be able to obtain another one from this same event. This means if you get an egg on day 1 of this event, you can't get an event egg from any other day during this event. By the way, abandoning an event egg does nothing. So if you get one you might as well keep it and be happy.
  5. If we find any accounts being made just to get eggs from the event then they will be immediately banned along with your main.
  6. If you were a winner of the raffle, your chosen Pokémon will be spawned into your party on the day of the event. It won't be forced shiny, but there's always a small chance just like any other egg! This will not count as an event egg and you can still receive one from the event.
  7. There is no guarantee that you'll receive an egg. There have been about 3k users online daily and there are only 1,750 eggs going out, so that at least gives you a little more than a 50% chance at getting something.
  8. Eggs chosen will not be available to pick from again for 3 months. If x egg was in the January egg distribution, then it can not be chosen again until April.
  9. The event runs at 4 p.m. server time.
Event dates and what's being handed out
  • August 2nd: Lugia - Winner: Silberchen - 350 eggs
  • August 3rd: Kyurem - Winner: x Sam - 350 eggs
  • August 4th: Jirachi - Winner: Luneon - 350 eggs
  • August 5th: Minor text fixes ~ MissingNo ~ 350 eggs
  • August 6th: This Pokémon's glare is cold as steel ~ Cobalion ~ 350 eggs
August 13th: Not affected by the distribution, there will be Vanillite eggs handed out on the 13th this month with a higher chance for a shiny, so don't forget to leave a spot open!

Ooh, nice picks this month. I'll just leave a spot open and get whatever egg comes my way happy.gif.

I still can't believe that it is already August, this year has been going by way too fast. My niece starts Kindergarden next month, it feels like only yesterday she was born.

Oh nice, the new novelty looks cool. Or at least the egg. :D Can't wait it to be hatched!

Happy birthday to Jeff!

Gonna start doing Mew exploration or Jirachi, whenever one of my bellsprout hatches. Got erm.. 6 shinies for SWSH but one bellsprout hunt remained.


I haven't played Pokémon Go with any tracking system at all, the foorprint feature was down when I started so all my playing have been random walking to random directions and hoping some pokémon jumping infront of me. I was annoyed to find out pokémon spawn so rarely (you migth walk 10min+ without finding any) and you couldn't track 'em, I've been seeing a lot of seel shadows and even dewgong shadows on my nearby list but haven't met them. It's frustrating! I wan't to be able to track some, not just randomly walk. :s

I tried to hatch one last SWSH but couldn't get it. Ah well, at least I got one earlier in July. Love the design for the prize voucher egg!

Not looking to get this month's special exploration legendaries, so I'll probably just work on the unown exploration (only need three more before I have them all!) , and probably Ripple in Time.

Curious about what those two unknown eggs are. I might try for one of those.

Congratulations on everybody who finished the SWSH! Let's enjoy our Dark Ekans!

I only got two out of three for the SWSH. Very weird to not get all of them in one go.

I also want to try for the Minor Text Fixes event too. oh.gif I wonder what that one is!

First time I did a SWSH. I did manage to get Ekans and Bellsprout..... I'm mad at Ekans though.. 303 eggs T.T
I hope to aim for all of them next time!

Also, Happy early birthday for the Admins and everyone for this month!

Lol, my exact though when I saw that. I may be going for that mystery egg, if not the other one. Maybe Jirachi... I guess I'll just have to see. I'm gonna make sure I don't forget the event this month. *enters alarm on phone*
Also congrats to Silberchen, x Sam, and Luneon for winning the raffle! And to those that managed to get a shiny for the SWSH! I'm sure this Dark Ekans will look epic. cat.gif
Also happy birthday to everyone with a birthday this month! Just gonna pile it into one giant happy birthday because I'll probably forget to say it later on lol.

Definitely going for the Darkrai explo. Maybe Mew for the other one, I'm not sure. I need to finish up Finding Your Muse soon though.

Also I've had the song Three Wishes by The Pierces stuck in my head literally for 2 days straight.

*Sun Moon info hype*
I can't wait for the news!
*squeals*

Has anyone here seen Breaking Bad? Right now I'm at the beginning of the last season and I have to say it's one of the most interesting shows I've ever seen. The plot is fantastic and the characters are great - I think my favorite is Jesse. smile.gif

Also saw this post on Tumblr and it brought me to tears from laughing so hard (and my mom as well when I showed it to her). x3.gif

I like many others will try and go for the mystery egg. If only I can remember to keep my party closed for those first few days.

And so many staff birthdays this month! Maybe this will give me an incentive to be more active on here. I'm also loving the new novelty. I wonder what it's based off of. I'm also hoping I can actually play more Pokemon Go this month too.

As for the explorations, I'm doing Mewtwo right now and I might do Mew after that because I really love Mew. Speaking of which, please feed the poor Mareep some Pecha berries?

"Minor text fixes" certainly intrigues me. Managed three shinies for the SWSH. Way better than I've done in the last few hunts.

I really need to jump back into videos. I'm so far behind. I mostly want to catch up on the Ace Attorney and the Layton series. Haven't really seen many new things I'm interested in.

Bird is the word



Managed to hatch 2 shinies for the SWSH which isn't bad considering I wasn't terribly active last month. I'm also going to go for either of the mystery eggs for the distribution...can't work out what they are off the top of my head. As for explorations, I might do the Mew one because Mew is awesome, then I should do another DotW run :P

First day back at uni today and I'm already exhausted haha. Had German this morning which was really intense...now that it's the last unit in the German major, it's run entirely in German. My brain was fried after that class haha.

Lol to everybody who were trying for all three of the shinies. I had ekans and I was like, "i'm good."

Any ideas on the minor text fixes egg? Is that a new novelty or what? happy.gif

*blink blink* I just wanted to hurry up and evolve my SWSH prize pokemon so I could see the evolved form, I had no idea I'd have the first one on the site! (At least, the stats page says that there's only one.)
