December Community Thread!


The November 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!

December 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
  • December 2nd: Cobalion - Winner: Synx Itax - 200 eggs
  • December 3rd: Tapu Koko - Winner: Sportsfan666 - 200 eggs
  • December 4th: Victini - Winner: Vulpix D - 200 eggs
  • December 5th: Articuno - 200 eggs
  • December 6th: Meloetta - 200 eggs
Important notice:
This will be the last egg distribution for the foreseeable future. The community threads will continue, but they will no longer be monthly, nor will there be an incentive to participate in them.

New month! Wow, I can’t believe it’s the end of the year already. Where did 2017 go? It seems like time just passes faster and faster. December is far from my favorite month. It’s a stressful time. Too many expectations and setup. I know, I have very little holiday spirit. Christmas is lovely, but it’s not worth the month of panic that precedes it.

Still trying to find that Feebas in Emerald. :P Took a break, though, so it hasn’t been a solid ten hours of Route 119. And yikes, I had a Type: Null I wanted to hatch for the PokeHunt. It was at 99% at the reset. So close.

...The egg distributions are ending? That's... actually really depressing to me. I always enjoyed them at the start of every month. Is there a reason behind this? (I mean, I'm sure there is, but I'm curious as to why.)

Congrats to everyone that finished their hunts! I know november can be a busy month for everyone.

It saddens me to see that the egg distributions are going away but I can understand not having the time to keep up with it all the time!

December already, where has the time gone? I'm so not ready for Christmas, I have so many things to buy.

Wow, the distributions are ending? Well I better hope I get something this month to end with a bang.

Might go for Cobalion...or Tapu Koko, IDK. Still November for a few more hours where I live, though I'm happy that I can now open all those Trinket boxes I've been hoarding for the past month. Really want some holiday goodies.

My Loves



December is usually not too crazy for me; I only shop for a couple of people and don't do anything super intense when it comes to decorating. Just a couple of trees and stuff around the house. We don't bother with outside lights.

I'm gonna try for a shiny Cobalion for the egg giveaway. Figured I'd ask for something a little different in this raffle.

My guess regarding the stopping of the giveaways and monthly threads is the activity level, but I don't know for sure. sad.gif

Meloetta? Neat
Guess I know when I'll be keeping a spot open wink.gif

Unfortunate that the monthly part has to end but everyone's getting older so I guess that's just part of life.
I'm going to miss that though.

Congrats to everyone who won! I can't wait to use this voucher ~

Definitely getting in on the Tapu exploration, I need my Fini something fierce. As for distribution 'mons, I'll try for Articuno or Meloetta if I remember to leave a spot open.

Hope everyone has a non-stressful holiday season c:

I'd also wager that might be the reason; if it was a different site I'd theorize that it was being taken away because some didn't want people completing their Pokedexes too quickly. I've run into some bad staff before, but you all are quite responsible.

The sad thing regarding activity level is that this will only lower activity levels further. :/ Ah well.

Unfortunately, that's true. From what I've seen, some people were only still active on this site because of the distributions. sad.gif

Completed Shiny Hunts



I'm really sad to hear the Egg Distribution is ending, that's one of the things that keeps me active (and they're like the only way I manage to get legendaries, I'm so fail at summons...)

Guess I'd better make sure to leave a party spot open <3

And it looks like I'll just be coming back every odd month for the SWSH, cause I can't keep up with scavenger hunts to save my life

Egg distributions were definitely one of those things that were always magical, going back to my early memories of the site. You'd be clicking whoever and then think, "Where did people get these cool eggs?"

SWSHs are definitely enjoyable, but I always like catching the new threads each month too (obviously).

Okay, somebody please remind me to stop taking on shiny hunts. I'm burning through all my Shelter Grabs within the first few hours after reset now, and my hunt Eggs rarely appear in the Lab.

In other news, good thing I still have a few Prize Points in stock...love me some gold and white shinies.

Another new month on GPX Plus, always a fun time! cat.gif I hope everyone's enjoying the season!
The new Egg Distribution choices look good, gonna go for Articuno or Tapu Koko since I have the other three. Though it makes me sad to see it go, it was always something I looked forward to.

Speaking of Koko, I just got back from seeing the movie Coco and I thought it was phenomenal. Great writing, a touching story, and colorful, immersive visuals!

I just noticed what the prize was for the SWSH and I'm so glad I managed to finish my shiny hunt. I can't wait for the voucher to be available to use, but knowing me I'll forget until a few days down the road XD.

Started the Tapu exploration, I was saving up my Prize Points so I could buy another Legend Voucher for the two Tapu's I needed. Now I don't have to worry about spending all of those prize points. I'm going to finish the exploration and pick either Tapu Lele or Tapu Fini. Whatever one I do not choose I'll use the Legend Voucher to choose the other. I've had this in my inventory for months, so at least I can use it now.

Tapu Koko needs some help, please give it some Pecha Berries:

Congrats to everyone who hatched a shiny! Couldn't pull it off this month. Looking forward to seeing what comes from the voucher!

I'm sorry that the egg distribution is going away, but I understand. I'm going to try for Tapu first, and if I don't get it gonna try for an Articuno (and hopefully get lucky with a shiny to finish that hunt!). I'm excited that there are two options from this group that I could use!

Does anyone know if another pokemon exchange is happening this year? (Throw in a pokemon, receive another pokemon of the same class.) I lost track of things last year and missed out, so I'm hoping to join in this year if it's going on again.
