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.
  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: Zombidofo - Winner: Mikaku Onchi - 200 eggs
  • August 3rd: Latias - Winner: Luneon - 200 eggs
  • August 4th: Misquaza - Winner: Shadow Fennekin - 200 eggs
  • August 5th: Lugia - 200 eggs
  • August 6th: Moltres - 200 eggs

Happy August, everybody! I'll probably forget yet again, but I'll try for Latias on the 3rd and Lugia on the 5th if I miss out on the former.

Enjoy your SWSH prizes. wink.gif Please breed them so that everyone can get all of them!

Since Moltres is out in Pokémon GO, I hope people have lots of luck with their raids! Don't forget that it's only available for a week before Zapdos shows up in its place. Myself, I'm gonna see about doing a few raids tomorrow and hopefully catching the fire bird.

Huh, feels like July just slipped away in the blink of an eye. Hopefully I remember to leave a party spot open for the day Misquaza goes out, don't have one yet and I'm too lazy to summon my own.

Glad I was able to finish my SWSH, even if my Salandit was male.

I wish I could do raids in Go. There was an Articuno really close by on the weekend, but I'd feel really awkward hanging outside a church for an hour plus .-.

Completed Shiny Hunts



I think I'd go for almost any egg this month except the Dofo. Misquaza though <3

Also, did anyone else see the "Old Rod" vouchers in the invo? I'm not sure if those are the SWSH prizes though?

Edit: I saw the mention of the PoGo legendaries - I never even got a chance to join a raid for Articuno, which sucks because I'm Team Mystic. I'm not even sure if I'm going to bother going for the others (don't have a Lugia either). My Pokemon aren't high enough CP to help much, and my game lagged right in the middle of the one Lugia raid I did join, and I couldn't get back into the battle. And of course, there was about one person's amount of damage left when the timer ran out...

Good luck to anyone that does raid =)

They're the SWSH prizes, and you use them for the special Magikarp patterns from Magikarp Jump. I'll be breeding pink and... either gray or brown, depending on whether or not this brown one hatches female.

I think the Old Rod summons the prizes, at least I used an Old Rod to get one in my Party.

Just got my first Ultra Wormhole just moments before I was going to purchase a Legend Voucher + to get a Cosmog. On my 8th GPX+ anniversary, no less! August is off to a great start already. happy.gif

Looking forward to catching Moltres in Pokemon Go as well, it's just a shame I have to drive 30 minutes to a city where I can actually find enough people to beat the raids.

I will breed the Calico, Pink and White Karps I got from the Old Rods after I manage to get my shiny rockruff nods - never played magikarp jump but the designs are sure pretty!

Be sure to check out the "Change Sprite" options for each of the 9 Magikarp. PokeNOM went all out with this one -- so thanks to her for all the hard work!

Magikarp Jump is a pretty fun little game and it gave poor little Magikarp some spotlight.

Ooh, okay. Really nice that they granted us three of them!

I'm gonna see if I can shelter/safari stalk them and then breed once I see what the patterns look like =)

August already, where does the time go? Looks like I'm leaving my party open for all of this month, just for a chance at a distribution Pokemon. I'm also going after Raikou for my monthly exploration, when I get a chance to do so.

I managed to get two Wormholes today, neither of my Cosmog were shiny. I didn't have to wait too long for the second one, Prankster turned into Wormhole after an hour. I'll be using my Old Rods from the SWSH tomorrow, for now I need to sleep.

The Pokedex says these guys always breed novelties, so it shouldn't take to long to populate them.

You have no idea how much I love this new set of SWSH prizes. I don't even care if I spent 9 Flame Orbs on it!
This certainly makes up for how no one seems to be breeding half of my shiny hunt targets -_-.gif

Hopefully when I get out again on Wednesday, I'll be able to bump into a random raid. I arrived too late for an Articuno one last week and wasted my Raid Pass because it was actually my first raid.

Whenever I have stuff in my Mobile Walker I use Chrome to activate it every hour. I just started getting a "Your browser was unable to determine your location! Please try again later." error. Is it because people are obsessing over the new Magikarps and overloading the system, or is my computer being stupid?

It's something that seems to happen for the frst few hours after reset. Try using the mobile site and it should work.





Back on the subject of the 'karp, and I hope I don't sound greedy here, but is there any chance of us getting the Skelly pattern as a new sprite for normal Magikarp? Since in the game it's classified as an offshoot of the standard pattern.
