PIDGEY LOVE



April is a very special month for site-creator Zerxer and myself. We are having had a baby! To celebrate the occasion, we're hosting a similar event to the Valentine/Anniversary event where you hatch eggs of specific Pokémon to collect an event item, which you'll be able to exchange for prizes.

The theme of this event?

BABIES


The event will run from the 16th until the 30th of April, at site reset. (April 15th 11:55pm EDT -> April 30th 11:55pm EDT).

When the event begins at the designated time, the following Pokémon will be eligible to hatch with the event item:
  • Cleffa
  • Igglybuff
  • Pichu
  • Togepi
  • Tyrogue
  • Smoochum
  • Elekid
  • Magby
  • Azurill
  • Wynaut
  • Budew
  • Chingling
  • Bonsly
  • Mime Jr.
  • Happiny
  • Munchlax
  • Riolu
  • Mantyke
  • Phanpy
  • Sewaddle

Zerxer edit: Also, today (April 13th) is Jen's birthday! In honor of that, enjoy the special Triple Plus for the day, and there will be a Chatotiel distribution at 4pm EDT with an extra chance of getting a shiny! Be sure to leave a space open in your Party, although receiving an egg is not guaranteed. Sorry for the late notice on that.

UPDATE:

This event is similar to several of our past hatch-based events, however I built an entirely new system for it, one that allows us to easily manage these events in our admin panel vs me having to edit code directly every time.

On top of that, these events will now use Coins, similar to the Dreidel event (the dreidel is not active, though). Because of that, everyone's Coin stat has been reset to 0 again.

Finally, to earn prizes, there will be a brand new section in the shop called Event Shop where you will spend your Coins on prizes. We've also introduced the idea of limits through a "Stock" -- this stock is per-user, rather than site-wide the way the Backroom works. This section of the shop is not yet available on the mobile site, but I plan to add it.

This is a brand new system that I built out yesterday and today, so it's practically a beta. If you get any errors or see any weirdness, please let me know! I will likely be making updates to it over the event, such as adding more information to the top of the Event Shop and adding something to the notifications in the header.

For events like this, the Event Shop will remain active for 1 full month after the actual event ends. So you will have a month (all of May) to make sure you spend your coins before the shop goes away and your coins get reset.

Hope you all enjoy!

Hey, that's awesome! I hope your little family grows well and you all live happily!

I noticed the boosts jump in right before getting off-site and heading to bed, so I waited around to see what was going on. Glad to see I wasn't just going a bit crazy!

Side note: I'm definitely hitting that part of my life where everybody around me is starting to or has already gotten married and are having kids... Man, time flies (and I feel like an old fart in a way).

HAPPY BIRTHDAAAAAAAAY!!!

I love birthdays! It's like, the most important day of your life because it IS, literally, the start of your NEW YEAR.
Like I can be somewhat lazy for other festivities, but BIRTHDAYS?!?!?!

I LOVE THEM.

SO CONGRAAAATS!
I really, REALLY hope you get to hear the birthday song I posted in Discord, and hopefully Nick will blast it off when you wake up! grin.gif

...

Wait.

Uhhh, maybe blasting it off might not be a good idea because of Zoey, BUT at least play it a little loud for the Mexican experience! grin.gif


And now on a more selfish note (I'M REALLY SORRY!)
Also I can't wait to try to get that Chatotiel too!


And on an even MORE selfish note...
DID SOMEONE SAID HATCHING EVENT?!?!?!?!?
SIMILAR TO THE ANNIVERSARY EVENT?!?!?!?!?


DOES THIS MEAN I CAN HAVE A CHANCE TO MY BLUE SOUP?!?!?!?!

OMG OMG OMG OMG YES YES YES YES PLEASE PLEASE

May I suggest adding Blue Magikarp and Pink Magikarp to the pool?
Why? Well, because those colors were used for babies after all! The sex doesn't matter, since Pink was used for boys and Blue for girls first, and then swapped around, and Magikarp IS a nice Pokemon since just look at it:
They grow and train and when you least expect it they turn into a Gyarados, and they don't look alike, just like how we go through puberty (and then adulthood)! ; W;

So, I'm just throwing the suggestion here. Also because I love chaotic events and hatching events are GREAT, BUT I understand if you guys don't want to, it's no biggie!



Anyway, CONGRATS AGAIN JEN! And, AGAIN, congrats Nick and Jen! And welcome Zoey!

Edited again, but now with a list of maturity for all the baby Pokemon so far! ('Cause we still miss the Karps.... Maybe? -wink wink nudge nudge-)

Have a nice baby!

This should be a good opportunity to get some traction on this Wynaut hunt - easily the most neglected baby of the bunch.
