April Community Thread!


The March Community thread has been moved http://forums.gpx.plus/index.php?showtopic=74671

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!

RulesMonthly 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!

April Egg Distribution!


How to get an egg from this eventIMPORTANT 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.
  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 outApril 13th: Not affected by the distribution, Pidgey eggs will be handed out with a higher chance for a shiny!

I can't believe its April already, March went by faster than I expected. I hatched my shiny for the SWSH and I hatched an accidental Oricorio (Baile) from the lab so I'm happy for the prize points.

Oooh, lots of cool Pokemon for the raffles. I'm going to go after any of them, all of them are nice shinies, maybe I'll finally get a shiny legend.

Posted by: Yami No Yuugi Mar 31 2017, 11:05 PM

I'm eager to know what the prize is for hatching a shiny!

Explorations:
Lake Trio and Kami Trio

Event:
Virizion

Now to just hope the site comes back up...

Posted by: Synx Itax Mar 31 2017, 11:07 PM

Aaaand just like that, it's April.

This is especially a meaningful month for me because I was in Japan for the first two weeks of April last year. A year flew by like it was nothing. (And why do I keep commenting on the time flying by? Lol.)

None of the giveaway things are especially interesting to me, but if I remember, I'll go for Ho-oh. I wouldn't mind Primal Dialga or Virizion either, though.

Let's see if I remember to leave room for a Pidgey egg!

Posted by: Natsume Reiko Mar 31 2017, 11:16 PM

Annnnnd the site keeps dying. I wonder what the prize is. (Better not be an April Troll) That being said March literally flew by- helped that I was super busy. Interesting choice for the giveaways, may aim for green deer...though the others are nice too.

Posted by: Munchlax Mar 31 2017, 11:16 PM

Pinch. punch! First of the month! No returns! grin.gif Gosh, April already...

Camp NaNoWriMo started today, too. Another session I'm sitting out of, unfortunately. Anyone participating? The cabins can be kind of fun if you manage to get talkative cabinmates.

I was able to succeed with two shinies but unfortunately my hunt for Baile ran up over 660+ eggs. I fought tooth and nail to the last second and no luck. oh.gif

I believe I'll give Ho-Oh a try (assuming I remember to keep the party full and empty on the right days!).


Posted by: Telethia Plume Mar 31 2017, 11:19 PM

Congrats to Wulfenite on the SWSH success. We rock!

I guess I'll go for Virizion for this month's giveaway. It has a nice shiny. Very pleasant shade of pink.

Posted by: Jacin Tatt Mar 31 2017, 11:26 PM

Servers up again! Maybe third time's the charm....

Posted by: Luneon Mar 31 2017, 11:27 PM

Shaymin definitely looks tempting but so does Celebi...
and looking at the explorations available... I love the elves, but I'm not sure if I have Kyurem yet so there's that.
Either way plenty of cool things to choose from cat.gif

March indeed flew by. I wonder what April's gonna be like tbh.

In a few hours the new love live event will begin and I'm going to be awful at it, so when you see me....
You know you have a sure win in your pocket XD

Posted by: Esc Mar 31 2017, 11:28 PM

Ashe-Greninja is nice!


Posted by: Asbel Lhant Mar 31 2017, 11:28 PM

Before the site went down I saw I had a Kalos Cap sitting in my Inventory, guess our SWSH prize is Ash Greninja tongue.gif. I just evolved my shiny Greninja into an Ash Greninja, it looks amazing. Its available in the Prize Shop if you never got a SWSH shiny too.

Posted by: Running On Ice Mar 31 2017, 11:36 PM

It seems like it is. I also ended up winning another one after battling Red. It kept getting interrupted thanks to all the server downtime. I thought it had to do with those event Pikachus that wore Ash's caps from every region.

All the choices look really good for the raffle, but I already have a shiny Celebi, so I'll just go for one of the other four, maybe Shaymin because I like its shiny a lot.

I guess I'll go with the Lake Trio and Kyurem for the explorations.

Posted by: The Yatagarasu Mar 31 2017, 11:56 PM

Hmm, nice event choices. I think I might hold out until Ho-oh if I can remember to do so. I feel like I haven't hatched one of those in forever.

I did the same. Still looking for the last Oricorio. Unofficially. I didn't start a new SWSH after I hatched mine.

EDIT - I just found my second Prankster of the day.

Posted by: Shadow Fennekin Apr 1 2017, 12:25 AM

I thought Kalos Cap was the first of the caps for Pikachu. But Ash-Greninja! YES!
Whenever those strike, it'll be nice cause all those male Pichu you hatch trying to get female Cosplays.... you can turn into Ashchus, cause Ash's Pikachu is male.

And I'll skip Shaymin, no offense but trying for Primal Dialgie will be more fun seeing as hunting those is more hard as you need to summon then corrupt and that can be quite pricey

Posted by: Gigadweeb Apr 1 2017, 12:25 AM

happy april's fools woooo

Posted by: Mamanator Apr 1 2017, 12:49 AM

Congrats to our SWSH winners. Nicely done! Looks like I'll be spending some prize points for the Kalos Cap since this is my second SWSH failure since returning to the site... gah... what was that... two years now? *sad woeful sigh* I'm just glad I can purchase the item though so - thanks for that opportunity. love.gif

Good night!

Posted by: Targaryen Apr 1 2017, 12:53 AM

i failed the swsh so i feel like the April Fool... :'( and i grabbed up more oricorio eggs before i realized the hunt was over (and my swsh auto-ended... so i'm party locked for the time being.

what explorations are people currently on? i'm still trucking away at death of the world. i don't click as much as i used to so these 20k steps take months for me to do unless i grind hard. (channels my inner Little Engine That Could) I THINK I CAN I THINK I CAN I THINK I CAN

Posted by: Telethia Plume Apr 1 2017, 01:06 AM

A word of advice: Red is a new Battle Tower NPC who gives a Kalos Cap as his victory prize. He uses his HGSS team, and it doesn't seem as if his Pokemon have any held items. They'll boost their stats if you give them a chance, though.

Posted by: Running On Ice Apr 1 2017, 01:17 AM

Tell me about it. I hardly scraped by but my Azumarill was able to take care of most of them for some reason.

I wonder how the rest of the Alola Pokemon will be available. So far they have been added during special events.

https://r.gpx.plus/mlksX
Also can you please feed them a Cheri berry?

Well, Snorlax has a held item. It took out a lot of my team and kept healing itself with Leftovers.

Posted by: x Sam Apr 1 2017, 03:20 AM

Pidgey will be good - I need more Sky Shards :P

No shiny Oricorio [Baile] for me, though. Annoying but meh. Already won myself a Kalos Cap after I purchased one. I hatched 767 eggs for Oricorio so I hope it doesn't take too long. I hope you get your shiny soon also, PokeNOM - that's a really awful hunt there sad.gif

In regards to Red, Mega Audino was fine with them all. A few boosts later I got my cap.

I already have Ho-oh and Shaymin's shiny so I definitely will not be going for those. Primal Dialga or Virizion would be lovely, actually. I might go for one of those! Celebi is also a nice alternative option to the other two.

=================

I'm off home now for 3 weeks. Once I've sent this I need to wash up, wipe things down, pack, for a couple of hours so not so good. I need to decide on some days where I'm going to come back to Bristol and spend some time with guy I've started seeing and tell work I won't be here for a day or two at most :V

I wanted to be home for 2 of my 3 weeks but my parents are away for the last week so I need to stay and look after the house and cat. Fun.

Other than that I'd sitting down and getting all my notes done.. and revise. Can't believe my first year of uni is over. I've still got to find somewhere to live for next year too lol. I can't do that for a while, though sad.gif

Posted by: Telethia Plume Apr 1 2017, 03:20 AM

Oop, forgot about Snorlax. That one's the biggest threat for sure, but I was able to beat it after its AI kept being stupid and didn't use Iron Defense when I had a physical attacker out.

If anyone's curious, my team was Mega Aggron, Mega Swampert, Mega Charizard X, Luxray, Primeape, and Torterra. Rock Gem on M Swampert and Leftovers on M Aggron.

Thanks! I'm over 1,240 eggs.
Slightly bummed that I failed the SWHS, but I purchased a Kalos Cap and fortunately managed to win one by beating Red just now.
I expect this silly shiny any time now. >.>
Hope you'll find your shiny soon, too!

I'm excited for this evening - will be seeing the Lion King musical.
I heard it's quite the spectacle.

Posted by: Gryphaena Apr 1 2017, 04:19 AM

@PokeNom: Wow, you're seeing the Lion King musical?

It's sure to be amazing, I've seen pics of the costumes and makeup, they're regal and beautiful.

Posted by: PokeNOM NOM NOM Apr 1 2017, 04:22 AM

@ Gryphaena: Yes! It's a birthday present from my parents (birthday was in October, but took a while for the musical to get here).
They know how much I would love to see it and now we're all going together, I'm thrilled.

Posted by: SonicFan99 Apr 1 2017, 04:40 AM

Dang. Fourth month in a row I didn't hatch a shiny for the SWSH.
Oh well. There's always the next month.

Congrats to everyone who did manage to hatch one, though. :P

I think I will try for Virizion since I don't have one yet. teehee.gif

Posted by: Gryphaena Apr 1 2017, 05:15 AM

If you are a member of either The Networking Ninjas or The Postal Service, please read my latest post in those Group threads, I have an idea to standardize the monthly PMs I send and I would like your feedback!

Please click the respective banner in my signature and jump to the last page.

Thank you!

I think it would be highly annoying if I send you a PM when I'm not sure how I should word the message in the first place.

I guess I'm a business language noob.

I can hope that this post itself is not against the rules, but if it is, I will accept any punishment coming to me.

Posted by: North Star Apr 1 2017, 06:12 AM

I also expected cap Pikachu when I saw the SWSH prize, but oh well. Already evolved my shiny Greninja.
While I managed to get Baile and Sensu Oricorio in less than 50 eggs each, I didn't have suck luck with Pom-pom (and several eggs into the hunt I realized I should have picked Pa'u first since I already have a Zap Plate).

Let's see if I can remember to leave an open spot for any of the monthly distributions, and for the Pidgey one as well. I'll also try to finish DotW before the scavenger hunt starts >_>

Posted by: Natsume Reiko Apr 1 2017, 07:20 AM

Now that the excitement has died down a bit, I may passively hunt the other birds. Way too much on my plate as it is. Darn goldfish attention span!

Posted by: Amberfunk Apr 1 2017, 08:45 AM

Another month already. Time goes by too fast. Not too thrilled about the prize but that's ok. Love all the prize points.

I'll go for kyurem this month and try for primal dialga. Definitely going for pidgey too. I'm hunting for shiny pudgey pidgey.

My bermite pair finally bred a shiny but it wasn't mine. 802 eggs with no shiny now and I'm the only one breeding them.

Posted by: Natsume Reiko Apr 1 2017, 08:48 AM

Whoever's doing Broncos baby mascot for their exploration, I'm breeding Machops because apparently hardly anybody is and there's none in the Shelter up for grabs. You're welcome. *Roasts nonshiny W. Vulpix breeding pair*

Posted by: Cycloneblaze Apr 1 2017, 08:48 AM

I see some people going for Primal Dialga, please don't I want them all tongue.gif It's nice to see people like it, though! Only need to keep my party full for one day and hopefully I can get two eggs (and a shiny!)

Posted by: Natsume Reiko Apr 1 2017, 10:37 AM

Gotta admit primal has a pretty burgundy shiny- like my old Chevy Beretta. RIP best pos junk bucket drifting awesome machine. Dumped a bunch of Machops so have at it guys.

I'm hunting W.Pix too.
During the swsh I got a few W.pix eggs. I think around 12 or so.

I still got 2 in my mobile walker atm

Hope he's permanent. Already got a cap but wouldn't mind battling him (would probably sell the other one).

Posted by: RicFule Apr 1 2017, 12:45 PM

Wow. It took me 43 minutes to be able to pick up my Cresselia egg. I had found it earlier, but neither mouse-clicking, nor the number grabbing worked, so I had to refresh the Lab. I WAS able to get myself a Sky Shard earlier when a Spearow hatched shiny. Only need two more Sky Shards now.

Posted by: Natsume Reiko Apr 1 2017, 01:04 PM

Wow that's luck there considering how long it hung around in the lab. I only summon when there's no multipliers. That being said been breeding my W. Vulipx on and off since 10'. I'm saving my cap for a shiny.

Posted by: Running On Ice Apr 1 2017, 02:06 PM

I hardly ever summon anymore on here mainly because of how many eggs are in the lab. It takes me a while to find the one I need. I have tons of summoning items stockpiled that I don't know what to use for.

I'm going somewhere later and my Mesprit's almost healed up. I remember when these things didn't take as long as they do now. I also hatched a shiny Alolan Vulpix earlier. Had to keep putting that hunt off thanks to the SWSH.

Posted by: Natsume Reiko Apr 1 2017, 02:34 PM

I used a few during the week since there were only 500 eggs in the lab due to no multipliers, ect. I don't think the shelter and lab cycle very well cause I notice a few eggs for some stupid reason likes to stick around more than others. Little time and more summon items keep popping up in my inventory. Don't wanna sell cause possible shiny chance...Dropped off more machop eggs for those that need them.

This dude's hungry for sweetness.

Posted by: KatTheBard Apr 1 2017, 02:59 PM

Question! These pidgey eggs being handed out, can we corrupt them or no? I figure yes, and if so would they still have that increased shiny chance?

March was cool. Started a job, ended a job. Started a new cool job! Got two shinies (BUT APPARENTLY SCREW ME RIGHT, THANKS GAME :P :P )

If they're just regular Pidgey eggs then yes.
Use a Twinkie on it when it's still an egg.

Shiny is determined once the egg is created.
So say your egg ID is shiny, then corruption won't make a difference since it's the same egg ID.

So does Korechu have a better percentage rate of being an event today? I've gotten it a lot

Posted by: Natsume Reiko Apr 1 2017, 08:06 PM

No clue, but I've had youngster come calling a lot today. *Wiggles brows* Hit a dry spell for a bit though. Been distracted by the Final Four as well so I've been drifting a bit.

I didn't get my Shiny Rowlet last hunt, and I ended up having to hatch over 1,000 eggs for it (took me 43 days and 1,080 eggs...I thought it was NEVER going to end). So I feel your hurt with the 750+ eggs

I wasn't really able to play as actively as I wanted to because my boyfriend surprised me and came up for his spring break, and he got really upset every time I opened the site (even though I told him I was on a time limit!) Somehow I got stupidly lucky and hatched my shiny yesterday morning! Phew!

No idea what this cap is all about 'cause I haven't played anything newer than Gen 3 (haven't even completed gen 3)

----

Also totally agreeing with people on the "how is it April already?!". Seriously, where did March go....

I've also had the youngster coming out a ton today, hmmm

And this little guy needs s'more berries <3

I had the Korechu event appear 3 times in the last hour or so before the reset. Wish you could stop it appearing. Didn't want Korechu the first time, not going to want it the third.

I'm grateful Hatch plus was a bonus yesterday, cause otherwise all those Korechu would be a pain. Done within 5 minuttes and lock up a party slot for about an hour.

I did get Manaphy too.... haven't gotten that for about a year! Was nice to see. Now if only the Old Man would return too

Posted by: Targaryen Apr 2 2017, 03:35 AM

i play on mobile a lot so things like the old man, manaphy, etc are few and far between now. i wonder if those types of things will get implemented for the phone vers. oh.gif

Posted by: eevee64 Apr 2 2017, 08:59 AM

Two more weeks of uni then I get a two week mid-semester break -_-.gif" 'Bout time.

For the giveaway I think I'll try and get two of my Ho-oh...a shiny would be lovely :P So would a shiny Pidgey to go toward my shiny pet bird collection pidgey.gif Currently on DotW so I think that'll keep me busy for this month exploration wise.


Posted by: Amberfunk Apr 2 2017, 09:37 AM

I got six korechu yesterday. No shiny ones though. Got quite a few eggs hatched yesterday with what little time I had.

Making congee tonight for dinner. Trying out a recipe I found online. It has soaked brown rice, kale (I'm using a mixture of spinach, chard and baby kale), shiitake mushroom (I'm using white button, porcini and black fungus) boiled and cooked for at least an hour in veggie broth and water. I'm really looking forward to it.

Working on the bidoofo exploration now and then onto kyurem.

Posted by: Natsume Reiko Apr 2 2017, 09:53 AM

No shiny troll ah well. I guess gunning for primal for me. If not then Ho-Oh and all else. Youngster sure got around a ton yesterday lol. Now what secondary exploration to start. Got my Broncos baby mascot. Well, more like the love child of the Colt's and Broncos mascot.

Probably not, the current version of the site is already mobile compatible for the most part.
I think the mobile site will eventually be discarded in favor of the main site.


Posted by: Running On Ice Apr 2 2017, 11:13 AM

I really didn't have much time to play around with the Prankster because I had to go somewhere yesterday. It took me a while to finish up Guardians as a result.

https://r.gpx.plus/sFzsX
I'm doing Kyurem now so could you please feed him an Aspear berry?

Posted by: Natsume Reiko Apr 2 2017, 12:15 PM

*Chucks berry*

I was hoping for a shiny alas that wasn't to be.

I don't think the mobile site will be discarded but I don't see it going full blown development mostly because it's there for convenience instead of being the backbone of the 'game' in general.


Posted by: Rita Zyon Apr 2 2017, 03:04 PM

I mostly use the mobile site too so I rarely see the events for korechu and the old man. I managed to finish another one of my shiny hunts recently, though will need to hunt again at some point so that I can get both genders for espurr. Of course I am not sure if I even want to evolve espurr since I am not as fond of the shiny forms for its evolved form.

It started snowing here today, more snow than I thought too. But shouldn't be too long until it melts again.

Posted by: MintChocolateOwl Apr 2 2017, 07:39 PM

Ahh I got Shaymin! Now I kind of wish I tried for Virizion but hey at least I have this!

Posted by: Running On Ice Apr 2 2017, 07:53 PM

I got a Shaymin too! I accidentally left my party closed during the usual time but it ran late as it turned out so I was able to keep one.

Also could you please feed him a Rawst Berry?

Posted by: Shadow Fennekin Apr 2 2017, 08:57 PM

And I forgot about the event today, at least tomorrow's is what I want. I'll have to free a space tonight in case I forget before I leave tomorrow

Posted by: Luneon Apr 2 2017, 10:47 PM

I forgot about the distribution too, sadly.

It's alright though since there's loads more good stuff coming up!
This month has a lot of mons I'm interested in

I should totally get clicking and try not to procrastinate this exploration now I've hatched that shiny Oricorio
Last time I done this one I had to give up on it, due to hatching multiple shinies at once

No egg today, so I'm gonna try for the Primal tomorrow, and if not, then maybe the Virizion? (spelling?, I don't know the later legendaries)

Crossing my fingers I finish my shiny Spiritomb hunt soon, but I haven't been doing it all that seriously xD I wanna start shiny-hunting Minior though, and hopefully have a bunch of them hatch with Stardust xDD

*Keeps a slot open* Here's to hoping for the burgundy...

We're getting snow prediction in the forecast. Not shocked honestly. Even as late as June there can be freak snow. Last time I saw one that late was way back when I was a child.

Posted by: Shadow Fennekin Apr 2 2017, 11:02 PM

Gonna miss those multipliers, I got ALMOST all the dust I need. I just need two more dust now, one to get Red's data and another to evolve my shiny and I can be done taking those eggs and focus on Alolan Sandshrew and Mimikyu's shinies

What's everyone's favorite Minior color? grin.gif i love the blue core

Posted by: Running On Ice Apr 3 2017, 01:12 AM

My favorite core colors are the Red, Orange, Blue and Violet ones. But really they all look nice, especially when they're lined up together in a box.

Feels like a lot of people's anniversaries are coming up this month. I wonder did GPX+ happen to get a boost in popularity then? Mine will be soon, too!

Posted by: Natsume Reiko Apr 3 2017, 06:50 AM

Well, GPX+ had a first incarnation that had to be taken down in February or so of that year when it was first launched due to bugs and issues if I recall. It wasn't until the reworked and revamped GPX+ went live again after being down for a bit did it really take off. So the dates match up for people's 8 year anniversary to line up around this time of the year.

Posted by: Amberfunk Apr 3 2017, 09:31 AM

My bermite pair have now bred four shinies. Hopefully this doesn't turn into another tynamo. I missed thirteen shinies from that pair. Finally got one from the lab. I helped someone get a shiny that took them three years to get and over 1200 eggs so that makes me happy happy.gif

The opening for American gods has come out. I can't wait to see it. By judge of the trailers and cast they have done the book justice. Plus the director is great. Same guy that did Hannibal.

My favorite minior core is violet since it's my favorite color.

Mine's in June.
When GPX+ was announced I didn't want to join right away, instead I wanted to wait till February.
But then stuff happened and I forgot.... but rediscovered it in June.

Hoping to go for Virizion or Celebi myself.

Shit, I was keeping a party slot open for exploration stuff and forgot about the event. This thing better hatch shiny, or I'll be crabby.

My favorite Minior colors are red and blue, and of course that beautiful shiny. I finally finished getting a full set yesterday. I named the standard cores after typical fruit candy flavors, named the meteor Rock Candy, and named the shiny core Funfetti. A big, happy, delicious family. happy.gif

Posted by: Cycloneblaze Apr 3 2017, 05:11 PM

Yee, I got two eggs grin.gif Hopefully one of them hatches shiny - I'm long enough into my Magma Totodile hunt without this dragging on too, lol.
My favourite Minior colours are blue, and blue (or cyan and indigo, I guess). I used the light blue one in Moon because it was the first blue Minior I found (and they were a pain to catch then), but actually, the indigo one is nicer :/

I just got the last trinket I didn't have. That sweet 100% collection. Now what? Well there are only 84 of them that I don't have duplicates of, so there's that.

I think I like the fact that Minior comes in so many different vibrant colours much more than I like any one of them individually.

Got the primal dialga egg from the distribution. It was the one I wanted.

I lost another five pounds with my vegan diet. I feel so much better now. Making stir fry tonight with no oil. Found a way to just cook the veggies in a dry pan and add a little bit of water as needed to keep them from sticking.

Got to go to the park today as well. Finally stopped raining. It had been raining for three days.

You can click on any of those names to go to a channel with people - you'll want to go to #get-flair-here first and, well, get flair.
If you can't see the GPX+ icon then you haven't actually been invited to the server yet, which might be the case, because I haven't ever seen you online... hmm.gif

I managed to get two Ho-oh eggs from the distribution like I wanted -prays to the shiny gods-. One of our pet chickens passed away yesterday so I really want a shiny one to name after her :>

I watched the first episode of Rick and Morty season 3 the other day, which was amazing! I thought it was quite sneaky how they released it on April Fools' Day to mess with everyone :P Also started watching season 2 of Attack on Titan and High School Star Musical...quite opposite anime I'm watching together there haha.

Welp the dialga hatched normal. *Shoves in a box to rot*

Same for me to be honest, I watch a lot of things which aren't alike at all.

Currently watching My Hero Academia S2, Alice and Zouroku, and FRAME ARMS GIRL.
All three are to my liking so I'm glad grin.gif
I also plan on watching GRANBLUE FANTASY The Animation, Twin Angel BREAK, and Re:CREATORS.
That is, once I find the time for them.

Then there's Pokémon Sun&Moon, Chi's Sweet Home 2016, Little Witch Academia, and Monster Hunter Stories Ride On.
All leftovers from previous seasons.

I put a few things on hold including the Cocotama anime that's been airing since... idk when.

Yay, I managed to get the Virizion egg! I was kinda sad I missed out on Primal Dialga, but I'm happy about this!

I'm having a hard time deciding which exploration to go on, especially because my finals are looming... I'm kinda tempted to skip legendaries (since I don't really know the ones currently available) and just do Mystery Creature of the Ruins again =)

I got ho-oh this month which I was excited about since I didn't get one last month. I have been very sluggish lately on this site as I have been super busy with writing cover letters for jobs. Hopefully now that I have written some cover letters, it'll be easier to write them in the future. It's difficult though to fit things in a 1-page document., takes some skill

Posted by: Gryphaena Apr 6 2017, 08:45 AM

@Rita Zyon: Yeah, making sure writing fits the parameters given can be hard. I had to write a one minute speech for an event I was invited to speak at and I had some edits to do, taking out unnecessary words, shortening sentences. I think it went well in the end, though, one of the fellow speakers made a reference to one of my points in her speech, so I'm glad at least one person paid attention to me.

I saw the weather and got excited because I found a snowball yesterday and wanted to use it.

... but when I hovered my mouse over the weather icon, it's actually hail, not snow. qvq

And speaking of in-game snow and hail, I could really use some in real life (of course, it's unlikely given the geography of most of southern California, and to be fair from what I've been hearing from the northeastern states, that sort of stuff isn't really something you want to wish for. It makes for some pretty gnarly traffic situations)

Got some snow last night where I'm at and possible chance tonight if conditions are right. Indiana's screwy like that. I want snow on the site too cause I have a W. Vulpix to evolve.

My favorite Minior colour is the black shiny. From the normal colours, I think I like violet the most. I think I would like them more if the colours weren't so dull, just a little bit more saturation.

I'm kinda worried about tomorrow and taking another shot at Elite Clicker. I guess it should be easier since "I know what I'm doing" better now..? Hopefully I don't have to give people rides tomorrow like the last time I tried Elite Clicker...

But to be complete honest, I'm currently more worried about Palm Sunday. In Finland it's Virvonta day (verb: virpominen, virpoa)- When children usually dress up as Easter witches and go around the neighborhood door to door trading decorated willow branches to candy (or money). They kinda of bless you so you can be healthy and lucky for the rest of the year.

Willow branch (click to show)


Since this is my first time living alone in a dense neighborhood with lots of kids, I'm kinda worried if I have enough candy for everyone and if I'm actually awake when they start their round. Since I might be kinda tired after Elite Clicker :___D

It has be a while since I have lived in a neighborhood were you actually get virpojia (people who come to virpoa). So I don't really know what to except cat.gif:

I'm actually kinda of surprised that this is only a thing in Finland? I noticed that while trying find translates for virpominen etc..

Posted by: Natsume Reiko Apr 7 2017, 06:56 AM

Idk about Finland but in the States during Halloween for example (closest eqiv) is that if we have candy we make the front look inviting and if we run out then we turn off the porch light and make the door less inviting. You could always put a sign on your door to let them know if you ran out. I'd get bulk small candy to stretch things out if you fear running out.

*Evos and nabs stuff*

I know this is really silly (since we're talking about kids), but I get a little bid anxious about the whole thing. I'm I too shy? (Yes.) I guess I could just not open the door if I happen to run out of candy (and get too anxious).

It's in good manner to ask if you can actually virpoa, before you start the poem that blesses the door opener. Which kinda gives you an opportunity to tell them you run out of candy. Some kids might still virpoa and give you a willow branch, even though they won't get paid for it (get candy). At least that how it worked 8 years ago...

Of course not, it's pretty normal for anime to begin on April Fools Day due to it being the first day of a new month.
Especially if April just so happens to be when the Spring Anime season starts :P

If you'd like to be more active here, I recommend just talking about recent shows, movies, or other hobby related things.
That can include pets, cool stuff you got in the mail, recent shows/movies, etc


Posted by: Natsume Reiko Apr 7 2017, 10:31 AM

Kids are super resilient so I wouldn't worry too much. I think it's sweet that you want all the visiting kids to get candy XD. I do the same around Halloween, try to give kids candy as much as possible but when I run out I just tape a sign on the door saying I'm really sorry that I'm out. I feel bad but at the same time it's not super easy to guess how many will or will not visit. Had some years run out fast, other years had a crap ton of leftover candy.

First let me wish you well as you vie for the Elite Clicker. Dang! That is definite bragging rights (in my opinion)! Secondly, can I just say how awesome that tradition sounds? I really love it! I wish we had something so creative in the states! It sounds like a wonderful tradition and those willow branches are beautiful! And if you run out of candy, the sign posted outside your door is probably a good idea. Don't feel bad about running out; it sounds like something that the kids are taught to do to spread happiness and be creative. Hopefully the majority that participate do it for that reason. Here's hoping you'll receive enough willow branches to decorate your foyer or kitchen or bedroom or what not. happy.gif Just enjoy it!

I also want to thank the person who sent out the Sky Gifts. I found one on my home page when I logged in this morning. love.gif It had just what I like. While it wasn't proteins and such, I do like the honey, sweet hearts, and flame orbs. So thank you, Mystery Giver. You rock!

I got a new job that doesn't require a (working) computer nearby at all times, so I'll only be on in evenings and on breaks. On the plus side, I'll be getting a new phone so I can utilize Mobile walker, AND play Pokemon Go! (I'm joining Team Mystic, for those of you who are wondering. Yeah, I know, with this username you'd expect me on a diff team, but I chose long before I even got the UN change, or before I even joined GPX+!)

Thank you Mamanator happy.gif

Just around 5 minutes before the reset hits and I can start clicking. I woke up 41 minutes ago (around 6:09 AM, my time) and I have already done with my morning routine. My eyes felt a little dry, but luckily I had eye drops for that. Hopefully I don't have to use those much today.

My goal is to do at least 12,5k interactions hourly, which means 19 hours non-stop clicking. I know I can do more than that in an hour, but I'll let it happen naturally. I don't want to start with everything I got so I don't get too tired early. I probably won't be posting any updates so if you're curious on how it's going feel free to check it ;P

I'm gonna start the day by watching season 5 of American Horror Story (which got added to Finnish Netflix yesterday). After that I'm going to continue re-watching Grimm. Where I'm still at the first season.

Only 32,9k interactions until I hit 250k! I still have 6 hours left and I'm feeling very sleepy already. Taking a nap sounds pretty tempting at the moment, but I'm pretty I can get that in less than 3 hours so I'm just gonna push it trough.

@D E A N: How did your Elite Clicking go? I'm not gonna tackle that one until after my exams, cause I suspect I'll be staying up all night to do it xDD (reset is 9pm my time, so IDK how I'm gonna sort out sleep and clicking xD)


I'm getting really fed up with my Spiritomb hunt, lol. The eggs take so much longer to hatch than I'm used to, haha. Also I think there's only 4 people breeding them, so there aren't that many eggs in the shelter, so I just pick up my own every few hours when I have room in my party xD

I guess I could start levelling the rest of my Unova and Kalos pokes and finish getting my non-rare living dex

Posted by: D E A N Apr 9 2017, 04:38 AM


I did it! I finally got Elite Clicker! It took me 1 hour and 20 minutes longer than I originally wanted, which means I wasn't able to do 12,5k interactions per hour. The last 45-60 minutes were horrible I had to stand up, because I was so tired I was worried about passing out if I sit. Thankfully I had a wireless keyboard so I didn't have to carry my laptop. While tapping 123, 123, 123, 123.. on my keyboard I noticed that I suddenly spotted tapping without reason. Like in my head I was still giving the command to my finger, but they didn't want to work :___D At some point it took me a while to even realize it. So I did a lot of just staring at the screen with my fingers on the keyboard, but without anything happening.

The most disappointing thing? I only hatched 30 eggs yesterday and 9 of those were hatched with Mobile Walker. Sure the first eggs in my party were 20k eggs, which probably was a mistake since it took 12 hours to hatch them. But then again I was able to do more interactions since I didn't have to adopt new eggs all the time.

@D E A N: How did your Elite Clicking go? I'm not gonna tackle that one until after my exams, cause I suspect I'll be staying up all night to do it xDD (reset is 9pm my time, so IDK how I'm gonna sort out sleep and clicking xD)


I'm getting really fed up with my Spiritomb hunt, lol. The eggs take so much longer to hatch than I'm used to, haha. Also I think there's only 4 people breeding them, so there aren't that many eggs in the shelter, so I just pick up my own every few hours when I have room in my party xD

I did it! grin.gif I guess I'm kinda lucky that he reset happens at 7 am my time. Since I can have a good 8 hour sleep before it, without going to bed waaay earlier than normally. If my reset would happen at 9 pm, I would probably go to sleep at 5-6 pm, even earlier if possible. And then taking 20 min power naps if needed.

Kids are super resilient so I wouldn't worry too much. I think it's sweet that you want all the visiting kids to get candy XD. I do the same around Halloween, try to give kids candy as much as possible but when I run out I just tape a sign on the door saying I'm really sorry that I'm out. I feel bad but at the same time it's not super easy to guess how many will or will not visit. Had some years run out fast, other years had a crap ton of leftover candy.

I asked my grandmother how many kids came last virpomis day/Palm Sunday. She didn't know since she moved in last easter, but after virpomis day/Palm Sunday. Though she asked a friend who said only 3 kids came, which sounds super disappointing sad.gif I really hope that more will come this year. So far only 1 group of 4 kids has come.

My grandmother actually lives in the same building, but on the 4th floor. I'm on the 5th floor and on the opposite corner. I actually bought my flat earlier and got the keys on December the 1st 2015, but I had to renovate everything since it was in original condition (build the early 1980). New paint on every wall, ceiling, knock down a couple walls, re-do on the kitchen and bathroom. I actually have couple before-after images if anyone is interested happy.gif

@ D E A N: Congrats on Elite Clicker!
That's still a challenge I need to tackle. I tried once, but ended up getting too distracted by what I was watching on TV so my clicking rate fell way behind and I gave up :P

I went and saw the Ghost in the Shell movie at the cinemas a couple of nights ago. I thought it was pretty bad to be honest ^^" Though it makes me want to go and watch the anime properly now.

My sister and I have picked out a new pet chicken to get each, after our old one passed away last week. I'll be getting a Golden Laced Wyandotte and my sister a Plymouth Rock chicken...we like getting different breeds as opposed to just the standard laying chickens :P Get to pick them up next week, just need to think of a name <^v^>

I'm probably not going to be too too active on the gym front for multiple reasons, but I'm still eager to play.

It's true alright, no idea why they're waiting so long for the US. SM already has 20+ episodes, and the dub is usually only 10-13 episodes behind

I'm not sure how localization works but they might have stumbled on some problems due to existing copyright which they'll first have to negotiate about.

Eh it was alright.
I spent it at the other side of the country with my family and I'll most likely be going back home in the evening.

Friday I had placed an order for an item I wanted and I got the payment confirmed email just now.
I was worried it wouldn't get through within the 3 workday time limit

Ghost in the Shell was going to be a bust regardless- the only so called positive was the visuals but substance wise and the essence of the universe/original film will never be properly translated by Hollywood. I'm personally boycotting the film for various reasons but a few of my guildies saw it and pretty much confirmed everything that I figured would happen in the film either way. It was very predictable that the film wouldn't know where the heck to go since so many hands decided to get involved as well as typical Hollywood politics. You either stick to the source material or don't bother with it at all. There is no middle ground with something like this.

Grats Dean.

My weekend was spent working like mad and very little clicking. I'll squeeze it in between when I can until downtime. Waiting for Pluses because hunting stuff is so much better then.

Thank you happy.gif I only watched TV while I was clicking. I even watched stuff that I haven't seen yet, which were a little risky, but apparently I have been training on not getting too distracted by it. Usually if I'm clicking user lists on gpxplus, there is 95% change that I'm watching TV/Youtube at the same time.

I'm fairly sure that I could not do Eliter Clicker without watching TV/Youtube/Movies and only having music as an entertainment. If sounds like it could get boring pretty quickly. Even if you're listening to songs you can sign along :p

I love non-standard chickens! I once had a phase were I looked up many different kind of chickens. I even found places were you could buy then, but that's not really an option for me :__D I really like the golden laced and silver laced Wyandotte, though gold is definitely prettier ;D

"Some" of my favorite chicken breed are: Barbu d'Uccle, Burmese, Gold Partridge Dutch Bantam, Ostfriesische Möwe, Frizzle, Malay chicken, Padovana, Polish chicken, Sebright chicken, Silkie, Sultan chicken and Yokohama chicken.

Thank you guys happy.gif Actually my fingers were alright the next day, same thing with my wrists. Not sure if I just got lucky or what happened.

Unfortunately after 5 hours of sleep, I woke up (unwillingly on Palm Sunday because of only group of kids that came to virpominen) and my left eye was swollen and "crying". It was also sensitive to light, which was pretty annoying since I couldn't really keep it open, but I really couldn't keep it closed either. Keeping it closed was pretty uncomfortable, but it wasn't similar feeling to "having something in your eye".

I get dry eyes and it usually feels like you've something in your eye. Before I really knew what the feeling was (aka before getting eye drops for it) I sometimes had to go to work an hour late because I couldn't drive a car. Now the bad feeling goes away max. 5 minutes after putting eye drops. But the drops didn't help on Sunday ;(

Luckily after MacGyvering myself an eye pad it started helping right away. I was able to take the eye pad off after 2 hours,
probably even sooner.

My weekend was uneventful just working like I do every weekend. Vacation is coming up at the end of the month though. Supposed to go to house on the rock if we can afford it. It's a three hour drive I think and need at least three hours to see the whole thing. Was planning on getting a hotel room so we can see more up there. I have to have a procedure done which is going to cost over $600 plus rent due at the end of the month so we will see if we can still go.

Working on this task now if you could feed her a spicy berry https://r.gpx.plus/VtCoX

My luck stunk this month. I didn't get anything from any of the distributions sad.gif But on the plus side I hatched a random Shiny Dracowymsy I adopted from the shelter which is my second one. I also finished my Shiny Snorunt hunt yesterday and hatched female. Means I don't have to worry about the next gender should I hunt another one for Mega Glalie happy.gif

But still! I'm still stuck on DOTW on the task before the rat so idk if I'm gonna have time to do the specials this month or not! :/

Happy belated birthday Jen!

My little boy was keeping me busy (and still is) so I didn't manage to write anything here since March.
I am still wondering where the last two weeks have gone. Time is passing by so quickly.

Got the Shaymin and Pidgey eggs from the distribution, but wasn't lucky enough for a shiny. Also forgot to corrupt the Pidgey before hatching anyway (already have a normal shiny).

After doing a lot of brain-afk clicking I finally finished "That burning desire" for the first time. Now I can focus on this month' special explorations.

I planned on doing the "Office Wars" achievement and signed up for a Dracowymsy shiny race. It turned out I didn't read the description properly before, because it's not enough to hunt an admin based novelty myself.
Anyone interested in doing the achievement (fewest eggs)? I would prefer to hunt Dracowymsy but would also be fine with Zergoose.

It's fun being able to decorate my own house, to think every detail through and be able to make it exactly as I want it.
It's also... a lot to think about. My head is spinning if I discover I need to make decisions on small things like curtain railings.

I decided to buy some credits to max out Hatch+ happy.gif. I haven't bought credits in a while, so I thought why not?

I've used up so many of my Prize Points the past week buying summoning items. The lab hasn't been too busy, so I found pretty much all of them except a Lugia. I just hope that it wasn't shiny because I'd be a bit annoyed. I haven't had any time to do the explorations this month yet, so I'll probably get on that in the next day or so. That'll be another chance at getting a non-summonable shiny legend(pff, I haven't had luck getting a shiny legend since Latias years ago).

Eagerly awaiting the start of the Scavenger hunt, to make up for spending all those Prize Points. I just hope that the first few are fairly easy to get through because I'm not sure if I'll have much time. I've been boosted up to 40 hours a week so I won't get a whole lot of time to do much on the site. At least having so many hours means my pay will be pretty good.

So I've hatched two shiny novelties this week. A Shiny Dracowymsy and now a Shiny Chocolate Miltank. Can I hatch a shiny I'm actually hunting now, GPX+!? TYVM.

Been a while I guess. Been busy, RL stuff is hitting hard now.

Just hit this task too. Slowest DotW run so far..

It's fun being able to decorate my own house, to think every detail through and be able to make it exactly as I want it.
It's also... a lot to think about. My head is spinning if I discover I need to make decisions on small things like curtain railings.
It's really coming together now, though! Very happy with it. My couch is due to arrive in less than 2 weeks.


It sounds like going to the supermarket and just staring at different versions of the exact same product.
So much to choose from...

Promised pictures of my curtain patterns, so here they are:

The new curtains I got for my bedroom (the one on the left) look as I imagined them.
I picked them up yesterday and was not disappointed.

Are you guys doing anything special for Easter?
How about different food?

My dad loves those little chocolate eggs. They have small wrappers around them.
I unwrapped some and put some grapes in the wrappers, they're exactly the same size and shape. x3
It worked out well - he went for some chocolate and just started laughing when he found a grape inside.
Of course, I saved his chocolate eggs for him somewhere else. ^^

We do an easter basket for Azriel and color eggs a few days before. I just hid them around the apartment for him along with four or five plastic eggs that have paw patrol characters inside of them. There won't be special food since I work today. Going to make a nice breakfast though. Everyone is still sleeping except me since I got up early to hide the eggs. Hopefully I can find cardboard eggs or something similar to dye next year. We don't eat eggs so these are going to my parents.

Decided to open from Pokéchest with Chance Power. I opened around 140 chests and here is the list of my new trinkets:
- 1 x rarity 1
- 3 x rarity 4
- 1 x rarity 5
- 1 x rarity 6 (I believe, clicked too fast)
- 1 x rarity 10

Without that rarity 10 trinket I would have been disappointed. There were a lot of trinkets of trinkets I only had one. 37 to be exact.

I'm still missing 562 trinkets. 13 rarity 1, 38 rarity 2, 59 rarity 3, 72 rarity 4, 90 rarity 5, 54 rarity 6, 52 rarity 7, 75 rarity 8, 54 rarity 9 and 55 rarity 10.

Those looks pretty nice. I kinda hoped images were we could see more of the design wink.gif

I only have valance curtain for my kitchen window and it isn't up yet. I'm waiting my dad to put the curtain rod in place. My grandmother had this Marimekko's lime green coloured orange-pattern fabric. I tough the colour was amazing and it could bring colour to my white-grey kitchen (which is mostly white). I can't wait to see it on place and see if I like it or not. It's certainly very spring-like colour ^^, My grandmother also made tablecloth from the same fabric.



I still don't have any idea about the curtain to my bedroom or living room, but I'm not really rushing with those. First thing on my shopping list is a bed. I have been sleeping on the couch for 2 months soon :__D

When you hatch a Misquaza and it hatch with an item. I think my heart skipped a beat, because I though it was shiny.
But since I don't even have a shiny hunt for it, the message for it would be just one row :__D

Posted by: Amberfunk Apr 20 2017, 09:04 AM

Finally watched batman vs superman last night since my son wanted to see it. He's big into batman right now. It was alright. Too much info in one tiny movie though. Still better than suicide squad. Got an early start on my vacation since I wound up going to the hospital yesterday and leaving work early. I'm alright for now. They want to keep a close eye on me though. Have to go for bloodwork in a couple of days. We are going to go to the children's museum and a few other places for vacation.

Posted by: Luneon Apr 21 2017, 10:42 AM

I'm slowly working on the exploration to try finish it before the time is up.
At the same time packing 'cause I'll be going to my grandma's for about a week or so.

Kind of sad I won't be home to receive some mail I'm expecting but eh stuff happens I guess
idk why but I'm almost never home when the interesting things are about to arrive

Posted by: Felony Apr 21 2017, 04:31 PM

I hope to have enough interactions to start a monthly exploration. For some reason I don't have enough of an attention span to make a lot of interactions at one time. Little by little I'll get there.

Posted by: Asbel Lhant Apr 21 2017, 05:59 PM

Well my Zergoose pair reached over 20k total eggs bred. So far they've given me 7 shiny Zangoose and not one shiny Zergoose. I've been after this thing for quite some time, if you can shine now that would be great, k thanks.

I'm a bit late to the exploration party, I finally got a chance to sit down and now I'm going after Keldeo. This Suicune wants some sweet Pecha berries to get rid of some poison:

I've been so busy with work so I didn't get a chance to do much. I've been absolutely exhausted and it feels like every muscle in my body is sore in some fashion. I had to soak my feet in bath salts, they were that sore. I'm so not used to working 40 hours a week.

Posted by: Alchemists Fire Apr 22 2017, 06:09 AM

Ugh, is anyone else about ready to give up on the scavenger hunt?
I've missed targets like 4 days in a row now because I've been out running around doing things and my eggs don't have enough clicks to hatch until almost the last minute. I was so close 2 nights ago (the 20th), because it only required lvl 16, but then too late I realized the pokemon I hatched was Green and I had to get it to level 32 to evolve it and make it grey...and I barely hit the 16 target before reset...

I don't get why we've had all Pokemon tasks either, usually there's been at least a couple of trinket tasks by now...


I'm also seriously discouraged by this Spiritomb shiny hunt. Taking forever to hatch eggs, I'm over the 300 mark, and I feel like I'm getting nowhere. My pair hasn't even bred a shiny that someone else has hatched in 1.5k eggs... I know the only way I'll complete it is if I keep hatching eggs, but not seeing my breeding pair produce any shinies is geting pretty disheartening...Maybe this Ditto ran out of luck xD

Posted by: Amberfunk Apr 22 2017, 07:59 AM

I used to hate the pokemon tasks. I find that having a laptop now they are more manageable. I find clicking to be stress relieving anyway. Helps that I'm on vacation too.

Azriel and I are going to the big flea market by our house today after we drop my husband off. Tomorrow we get to go to our favorite flea market that's farther since it opens tomorrow. He's excited to try and find some new toys.

Posted by: Shadow Fennekin Apr 22 2017, 08:44 AM

The only bad tasks to me are when we keep getting several level 50+ tasks in a row.... that one scavenger hunt was hell, but I completed it anyways as I didn't want to break my streak of completing them.

And apparently today is my 8th anniversary here

Posted by: Yami No Yuugi Apr 22 2017, 12:03 PM

Decided to start hunting for a complete set of Minior in Pokemon Sun-including a shiny, which I'll SOS for.

Speaking of shinies, I managed to get two via WT. Basically I started watching this streamer called Vanderforge, he does a lot of battling, shiny hunting, and wonder trading on Twitch-I got a shiny Torkoal and a shiny Heracross during a stream from what the chat calls 'non-viewers' (Someone who is not watching the stream/interacting in the chat-usually ends up being people from Japan and South Korea, given the time of his streams). The Heracross even has perfect IVs! (Unsure if it's from Gold Bottle Cap or this was a one in a million.)

Posted by: Amberfunk Apr 22 2017, 01:04 PM

Found a plastic ryder wagon for Azriel at the flea market. Great thing to take to the zoo. Glad we found it. There was a bad accident coming home though. Involved a small car and a motorcycle. The person that was on the motorcycle was thrown to the side of the road. Hope they are ok.

You'll have to do Masuda method or random encounters if you want to get a shiny, and with random encounters you run the risk of it self-destructing.

I've only missed one so far. And no, iirc, it's mostly leveling tasks. If we get more than one Trinket task in the Scavenger Hunt, it's a good hunt.

You must hate me then. I got a random shiny that hatched, as of the time of this posting, 4 days and 33 minutes ago. I think I was grabbing them for the weekly Pokehunt?

EDIT - @ Yami: I've gotten the complete normal set in Sun. No shiny, though. And I think I had a ton of Green and Blue kill themselves before I was able to complete the set. But it's been a while, so I might be mixing up the colors I had a hard time catching.

I thought it was a longer time since the last aura, but apparently not. I can get my last Unown before I can try for another shiny Deoxys lol

Posted by: Amberfunk Apr 23 2017, 07:30 AM

I didn't realize that we had aurora that recently either. Glad I didn't have to quit my exploration now though. Haven't gotten a spring cyndaquil in awhile.

I'm currently rewatching the eighth season of the xfiles. That's the only season my library had. I've gotten five episodes in I think. Forgot how much those shows eventually freak me out if I watch enough in a row. Still one of my favorite shows though.

Ugh I know the feels. Been dragging my feet with Eevee personally. It's torture. I'd take misery of my allergies at times over this. My Winter Vulpix have been at it since the dawn of time and nothing to show so far either. Seems like the world is conspiring for me to hunt other shinies than the ones I really want.

Trinket scavengers would be very nice. Kinda sick of having to break up my hunts for this.

Hmmmm I'm not that much of a TV person but I like to watch Pool Master, Tanked, River Monsters, and similar shows when they're on and I happen to be in the same room :P

Speaking of rewatches, I'm rewatching Himouto Umaru-chan atm.
With the second season coming this Fall I want to be fresh in my mind so I can jump right back in again.
I want to do this with a couple other shows too. Although I'm not sure which ones.

I want to get another one so they can talk to each other but they are hard to find. Azriel got a batman car with batman for $2. He loves the thing. It drives it's self and launches little fan things.

Opened some Pokéchests with Chance Power again. I only opened around 80 chests, because at first I tried to gather too much data from them. But after opening them, I was able to put 31 new trinkets up in the market (one was rarity ten) and I got 5 new Trinkets that I didn't already have. Carrot Cake Poké Puff (R5/April), Dimensional Shield (R8/Fifth), Pester Ball (R8/Seventh) and Mewtwo Marble (R9/Twelfth).

I'm still missing 522 trinkets, where 174 are trinkets I can get without trading (aka from chests). 42 of those are seasonal trinkets you currently can't get.

It has happen twice for me, first time with Festive Makuhita (23,241 children, 4 shinies, 378 novelties) and then with Future Shuppet (23,394 children, 10 shinies, 448 novelties).

If your breeding pair hasn't produce a shiny for a while, that just means that one should pop up any minute now happy.gif Personally I think it's more annoying to see they producing shinies that you don't pick :__D

Yesss, managed to complete another DotW.
I should put more effort into doing explorations in total, I've been a bit lazy.
Maybe I'll go for the Guardians exploration next, now that DotW is done.

Taking a day to just relax. Maybe I'll go out for a walk, later.
I'm expecting my new couch to be delivered this week! That's exciting stuff.
I'm keeping a close eye on my phone, in case they call for a delivery appointment.

As for my favorite shows... I like watching all kinds of things.
I enjoy shows like NCIS and Criminal Minds (not up-to-date with all of it, but I still like it).
Or shows on Discovery. Or Catfish. Or Sherlock-related series (both the BBC series as well as Elementary).
Lots of other things I can't think of right now, too.

Now that someone said it. I really enjoy these crime solving shows like: CSI, CSI Miami, CSI NY, NCIS, Criminal Minds, Numb3rs, Mentalist, Limitless, White Collar, Lie to Me and Bones. I like how in some shows it doesn't matter if you miss an episode or two.

Could you add me to your pal pad temporary? It's so much faster to check if I have any extras that you're missing happy.gif
I can then send you a PM with print screen of what I got (if I got anything).

When the original furby came out I saw the commercials and thought it was really freaky looking like a gremlin. I wound up getting one for my birthday so I got used to it. Can't tell someone that waited a few hours in line to get one that it freaked you out. Then my mom got me another one. Used to talk from the toy box in the middle of the night. Used to keep me awake.

I guess my long-time favorite is Stargate SG1, even though I'm also watching Atlantis now and thought Universe was promising.

I was thinking about staring another DotW exploration yesterday, but given the expected duration I decided to wait until next month after finishing 2 Mai special explorations. I'm somewhat hoping for the Diancie exploration to show up because I don't have the egg-dex yet. Than the only entry missing (except for various Arceus entries and some Unown forms) would be Xerneas.

I've recently started working again after half a year of maternity leave. Felt like I left just yesterday when I went back into the office, except for my extremely full inbox (nearly 2000 emails horrified.gif).

Wound up getting pokerus on an exploration ditto. It's always exploration pokemon with me lately.

Been doing pretty good on the scavenger hunt tasks especially since clicking is quite calming to me now and I barely notice doing it. Did close to 20k interactions yesterday. I'll never get 250k though. I don't have the time.

I made an appointment to get my new couch delivered, it's next Monday!
That's really exciting - all this new stuff, and I get to choose everything... I can't wrap my head around it yet.
The new curtains are up and looking fabulous. I think we'll be putting up some decoration tomorrow.

@Luneon and anyone else from the Netherlands: what are you doing for King's Day tomorrow?
As for me, not too much - will probably be looking at some activities in the area, though.
There's a race around the village where people will form tag-teams and have to run and hand pasties to the next person (tompouces!).
I'm sure it'll be hilarious, I'll take a look there for sure. x3

As for GPX+, I finally found my Baile Oricorio. Very happy, I love that shiny.
Still no sign of a shiny Purple Kecleon though.

On the subject of Scavenger tasks, I've been able to complete all of them so far.

This one could use a proper berry. Help would be appreciated!

Also really enjoying the spring colors, love the fact that there are flowers everywhere.
I'd like the weather to be a liiiittle bit warmer, but so far, it's very pleasing to look at.

I've only missed one so far. And no, iirc, it's mostly leveling tasks. If we get more than one Trinket task in the Scavenger Hunt, it's a good hunt.

You must hate me then. I got a random shiny that hatched, as of the time of this posting, 4 days and 33 minutes ago. I think I was grabbing them for the weekly Pokehunt?

Last scavenger hunt we had a TON of trinket tasks, I think we even had 2 in a row at one point. We haven't had a single one yet...
Not only that, but tons of "x nature" hunts, and I hate those, I never even bother with them.

You got one randomly? You're not even hunting them?! I don't hate you, but that's pretty frustrating xDDD
I'm 323 eggs into the hunt, I've bred 1558 eggs, and my pair hasn't produced a single shiny.

Ugh I know the feels. Been dragging my feet with Eevee personally. It's torture. I'd take misery of my allergies at times over this. My Winter Vulpix have been at it since the dawn of time and nothing to show so far either. Seems like the world is conspiring for me to hunt other shinies than the ones I really want.

Trinket scavengers would be very nice. Kinda sick of having to break up my hunts for this.

I want to hunt Eevee eventually, I love Shiny Espeon xD A Shiny Umbreon is also an attractive thought <3 It's gonna suck, cause I'm gonna hunt for an Eevee and all the Eeveelutions, and i think that's like 9 of them? Sufficed to say, I'm not starting that hunt for a while...

I'm shiny-hunting on another site (PokeFarm), but I'm getting pretty tired of it too, and I'm not even 100 eggs in xD

If your breeding pair hasn't produce a shiny for a while, that just means that one should pop up any minute now happy.gif Personally I think it's more annoying to see they producing shinies that you don't pick :__D

They haven't produced a shiny at all yet xD 1,558 eggs, no shiny. My Wishiwashi pair produced 5 shinies in just over 700 eggs... so why the hell is Spiritomb being so elusive?
Mind you, there was also my stupid Rowlet pair that procued ONE shiny in 3,458 children....

I made an appointment to get my new couch delivered, it's next Monday!
That's really exciting - all this new stuff, and I get to choose everything... I can't wrap my head around it yet.
The new curtains are up and looking fabulous. I think we'll be putting up some decoration tomorrow.

@Luneon and anyone else from the Netherlands: what are you doing for King's Day tomorrow?
As for me, not too much - will probably be looking at some activities in the area, though.
There's a race around the village where people will form tag-teams and have to run and hand pasties to the next person (tompouces!).
I'm sure it'll be hilarious, I'll take a look there for sure. x3

As for GPX+, I finally found my Baile Oricorio. Very happy, I love that shiny.
Still no sign of a shiny Purple Kecleon though.

On the subject of Scavenger tasks, I've been able to complete all of them so far.

This one could use a proper berry. Help would be appreciated!

Hm I might go to the central part of the city my grandma lives in, just to see if there's fun stuff to do.
My grandma managed to spread her flu to me so if I feel awful tomorrow I won't be going anywhere.
I know my mom's going to make cake again and I recently bought her some food coloring so she can make everything orange :P

I'm not too happy with the weather... I prefer 20C and up. It's nice that it's not rainy but a bit more warmth couldn't hurt I guess.

Also speaking of deliveries, my dad finally picked up my model kit. FINALLY. It's been at the post office since Saturday.

I'm not doing too well with scavenger tasks.
Instead I'm working on finishing the Guardians exploration.

I have to get back to hunting Eevee some point actually. I don't have all the shinies yet, but I cancelled it to make room for Alola Pokemon I wanted.
I'll have plenty of room for Rockruff and Pikipek whenever they get added now though.

I've also done all the scavenger tasks so far, wish we'd get some trinket tasks though.... all these nature related ones are annoying. I always forget about it when I hatch something, then have to go look for something that will pass the hunt again. Which can be real annoying on a non-multiplier weekday, the slowest times to wait for egg hatching.

I think the site lists more than 4k players actively hunting so that's totally fun...not haha. I honestly started mine 5-6 years ago? Idk I came back from a super long arse hiatus. I have 6 already from that time and am finishing up to get the whole set. Shouldn't have quit I know, but I got addicted to WoW and life sucker punched me so bad I nearly was 6 ft under for good.

I just hit 1000 eggs on my shiny Vanillite hunt. I was kinda hoping for a shiny on the 999th or 1000th egg. I already took a break from breeding them and started a shiny Easter Buneary hunt. Once I hit 100 EB eggs, or hatch a shiny, I'll start breeding Vanillite again (unless I hatch one from Shelter/Lab eggs before that).

Posted by: Amberfunk Apr 27 2017, 03:35 PM

My dewpider pair are shiny breeding machines. 315 children with 5 shinies. Of course I missed all of them but I'm one of the very few who are breeding them. No one that has hatched them has been hunting them though. Random pick ups for the scavenger hunt. Better than no one getting them though.

It's date night tonight. Haven't had one in a very long time. Going to a chinese buffet with sushi since we can't go with Azriel because of his allergies. We're going to get some movies too.

Yesterday we went to the collectables toy shop. Got the dragon from conan and one of the tortured souls figures. Hubby set them up in our room nicely. That store is awesome. Only open a few hours a day though.

I mostly want the last Alolan Pokemon cause they'd surely open for options for the specific color/specific type tasks in scavenger hunts. When there's only one or two options, it's a lot harder to find what you need

I'll hunt him four times.
The fourth because well.... he has a third Lycanroc slot on the official site. So it'd be nice to have a Rockruff open and ready if Eclipse Lycanroc or whatever it's called happens.
I just hope one of the ones I get end up a male so I can make it Midnight like mine in the games. xD

I'm really looking forward to rockruff and morelull. The mushroom is kinda cute. I love the ones based on fairies and sprites. They are so hard to name though.

I have to go in for my procedure this morning. I'm really nervous. Trying to get a bottle of water down before we leave. Can't eat anything or have coffee since I have to go under anesthesia. I really hope everything goes well.

And Minior can finally be taken off my hunt recorder! Got every form and finally obtained the last dust I needed to get my shiny out of his core.

There's another slot for Lycanroc on the official site that coders found, Mimikyu had an extra too. There's no clue on what they look like, they just have an extra space on the site.
They're mostly likely getting new formes in the next gen 7 games

Aahh!! Mimikyu, too?

I wonder if we're gonna get to see what's under that rag, or something similar :0 that'd be pretty neato.

Though - and don't quote me as I'm not too sure if this is true - I've also heard the next gen 7 game might be a nintendo switch exclusive thing. I hope not but ah well, that's what I hoped when the 3DS became a thing (luckily, a former acquaintance of mine was kind enough to give me her old one so I could play the new games :'U new consoles are so expensive)

I think them revealing the 2DS XL yesterday killed any chance of Pokemon leaving the 3DS family. If you make another DS system, it'd be pretty dumb to take the most selling franchise for said system off of it.
Gen 8, it can go to the Switch. Switching mid-generation would just be dumb and exclude some players from being able to play it. Especially with Switches being hard to come by

whoa, what! :0 That's pretty interesting. On the surface it looks like a vaguely slim version of the 3DS and rearranged and added controls, but since it's so new I suppose they have yet to roll out all the differences and the what-not.

and I suppose that's a pretty good point - I do hope they stick with that kinda game plan, no pun intended.

Posted by: Amberfunk Apr 29 2017, 07:16 AM

I think I would rather have the new 2ds than a switch. Geno, my husband, wants the switch though. Guess we will see when the new games come out. I would love to have something that we can play video games with our son with though. He should be able to do that with the switch. We did have a wii but it got water logged and I haven't tried to use it since. It might be ok and it might not be. One of these days I'm going to try to hook up my ps one and see if it still works. Azriel likes spyro and he would probably love the old atari games.

We've had a downpour of rain since last night. Now we have water coming in our basement, which I have to mop up.

I hope everyone else is having a good day, and enjoying the spring.

Posted by: PokeNOM NOM NOM Apr 29 2017, 11:49 AM

@ Felony: That sounds like some dramatic rain! Hope nothing in your basement was damaged by the water.

Yes, I'm enjoying spring more and more.
The temperatures are slightly rising (which is good, it was pretty cold the past few days), tomorrow promises to be an even better day weather-wise and birds are busy flying around chasing each other, building nests and collecting food for their young. Always love seeing that!

It's a bit late, but I finally got the chance to watch the movies Ant-Man and Captain America: Civil War.
I think the Ant-Man character is one of my new favorites.

@ Amberfunk: Glad to hear your procedure went alright. Hope your recovery is just as smooth.

@ Gryphaena: Hope your test results will turn out for the best.

What's everyone eating for dinner today?
We're having good ol' mac and cheese.

Neat! They're definitely not (yet) in the current games because dataminers would've found them by now.
Since Totem mons are already different per game...maybe a third game would have Lycanroc and Mimikyu
Or maybe it's just going to be Ash Lycanroc and Team Rocket Mimikyu, who knows :P

That's what a lot of people say.
It would be nice to have a dual release like when the first mystery dungeon games were released :P
GBA and DS

It can definitely boost Switch sales but it's already doing pretty well on its own I think.

How many Zergoose eggs have you hatched so far? It'll feel amazing when you finally hatch that shiny goose happy.gif

On this current hunt, I've hatched 263 Zergoose eggs. My previous Zergoose pair gave me 117 Zergoose eggs(I cancelled the hunt because I had other shinies I wanted to hunt and a novelty took up a slot). So far I've hatched 380 Zergoose eggs in the 2+ years I hunted it. I'll definitely be happy when it DOES shine, it just doesn't want to end right now.

Got this back on the 28th, time sure flies doesn't it? It felt like only yesterday I joined the site, I've had so much fun here. Here's to another great year on GPX!

~

I finally, FINALLY got a Nintendo Switch! I've been going to Walmart for the past 2 months searching for a Switch. Every time my Walmart would get them, they would be snapped up very quickly. On Thursday I had to run up to Walmart to buy some cereal, so I decided to check the electronics section. When I went to the final case I saw the last one in the store! They apparently put it up on Facebook 10 minutes prior to me getting there so I was SUPER lucky to get the very last one.

Needless to say I couldn't stop smiling when I got it, all those weeks of looking paid off. I ended up getting the Switch, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and a Pro Controller, 655 dollars well spent. I'll definitely be getting Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on Friday when I get paid so I just need to wait another few days.

Finished all of the Scavenger Hunt tasks, final Pokemon was Corsola. I was actually surprised, we had 0 Trinket tasks this month. I was actually hoping for a few of them, because I didn't know if I could finish all of the tasks. I'm glad that I did get them all done, I need more Prize Points. Work has been quite rough working 40 hours a week. I had barely any energy to eat, let alone clicking Pokemon levelled up to 60+.

Posted by: Synx Itax Apr 30 2017, 02:07 PM

I want that new 2DS XL, actually. I never use the 3D function, and I like the black and blue colors of the new one. It's at a nice price point, too, so I think I'll pick one up. happy.gif

End of the month again. Ugh. I didn't realize it'd swing on by so quickly.

I hatched a shiny Pokii this month but (as far as I remember) nothing else. :/ Come on, shiny luck.

Missed one Scavenger Hunt task, too. Noooo.

Posted by: Running On Ice Apr 30 2017, 04:13 PM

I was able to complete all the scavenger hunt tasks, but I was a bit confused over the lack of trinket tasks. I don't think we've had that happen since they were first added.

I'm also one of the raffle winners! I haven't gotten it since about a year and a half ago I think.

Congratulations! I'm wondering if all the posters are put into a randomizer now. It used to be by post count. I'm just curious.

I missed two scavenger hunt tasks this month.

Watching dumbo now. Haven't seen it in a few years. Does anyone have a favorite disney movie?

I also filled out the application for amazon last night. I got the job pending drug test and background check which will both go through no problem. I do all of that tuesday and then hand in my two week notice at work. I'm so happy! I will be so less stressed once I am out of that environment.

That's to prevent that the same people get to pick multiple months in a row, although it does still happen every so often.

Well, I don't think it was done this way to prevent people from winning, per se, but more to give as many people as possible a CHANCE to win.

And also? Depending upon when the winners were chosen, two or three people, Amberfunk included, could have had two entries.

Cars, Big Hero 6, Toy Story 1-3 and Zootopia are also favorites of mine. But Lion King is the best

So hyped for Cars 3

Posted by: Synx Itax Apr 30 2017, 07:34 PM

Favorite Disney movie is The Lion King by a huge margin. Nothing else even comes close to me. I'm actually more of a Dreamworks fan overall (and I'm strictly talking 2D animation here).

I'm one of the fortunate raffle winners and I only posted 6 times in the thread this month, so i guess everyone has a chance.

I don't know that I have a favorite Disney movie. But, at one point, I had an almost complete collection of the animated Disney theatrical releases on VHS. But my nieces and nephew borrowed some when they were younger and I never got them back. I'm attempting to get the complete collection on DVD now, but a lot of them are in the Disney Vault and aren't currently being sold. sad.gif

So. Pokemon Shuffle has been doing Alola pokemon this week in the Special area, and I think I've finally caught all of the currently released ones. There might have been a daily one that I missed, but it should be back in a day or two so I can see if I DID catch it or not. And also? Magearna. I caught that one today on my second attempt. Had to use a Jewel to unlock the stage, but ...
