Kind of belated, but this is the official Easter Event post: http://blog.pokemonlegends.com/the-easter-event-is/

It's about 1 week long (ending on 22 April 2017, when System time reaches 0:00:00 at the end of the 22nd) and it starts in the Garden Maze Entrance.

You will also need to have completed the Eastbourne Gym in order to participate!

Negative incidents are not normally encouraged to be publicized, but there is one that was of such great significance that it forever rippled across the history and themes of Pokemon Legends.

The May 13 "Day of Judgement", which is the term coined by the people of Pokemon Legends, was the last point in which the developers of PL took a backup of the game server before the game suffered a server hard drive failure and crashed on December 1, 2016. Between May and December, all data- including new registered accounts, pokemon caught, donations, storyline progress, updates- were completely lost and irrecoverable because no further backups of the game were done within those months.

As the one year anniversary approached, people began to inquire if anything will be done on this day. No events are planned for this because this isn't something to celebrate. The lessons learned however, should still be kept in our memory and thus there is a small map dedicated to the fate that befell not only those who joined after May 13, 2016 but all players of the game.

If you visit the Route 3 Secret Grotto, you can stumble upon a secret entrance to the Judgement Day Memorial. There are no wild Pokemon or events that transpire on it- it's simply there to exist as a permanent and significant piece of PL history.


So, what has happened since then?
The developers now take regular backups, at least once a month, to make sure such a terrible rollback will never happen again. They also take backups before anything is edited on a developer level.

Yes the legendary storyline is still not released yet, but it's almost done! A very large chunk of it was being rewritten to reflect the original spirit of the PL storyline, instead of being presented with the feeling of it being a grind fest tossed in as a time sink.

To those who stuck around from before the Day of Judgement last year, thank you!

Blog entry here: http://blog.pokemonlegends.com/let-ther ... ies-again/

I would like to give a very special thank you to Sharks12, who helped to fix and improve countless things and put up with months and months of staff complaints (mainly mine) and actually worked to resolve issues. And a special thank you also goes to all of the active staff that has helped test and give ideas for various things during the rewriting phase, as well as the players who demonstrated extraordinary patience and understanding that staff are humans and sometimes things happen that cause delays. This update would not be possible without them! 





And now to go and start working on the summer event. Soon™

Orden is now entering the winter phase, so many of the maps in non-hot areas are now drenched in a dusting of snow! This is purely a cosmetic change and does not effect any spawns.

The exact maps are:
Grassy Patch
Bluegum Town
Route 1
Route 2
Darlinghurst Town
Darlinghurst Town East
Route 3
Route 3 Secret Grotto
Route 4
Newpine Town
Route 5
Oldpine Town
Oldpine Town Jailfield
Route 15
Route 16
Wildhaven Town


Edit December 11 2017: More snow areas:
Sandmarsh Town
Sandmarsh Swamp
Lotad Nesting Grounds
Route 10
Route 11
Route 12
Dorocoast Safari Zone 1
Dorocoast Safari Zone 2
Dorocoast Safari Zone 3
Dorocoast Town
Dorocoast Dock
Route 17
Route 18

If the maps on your end still show the normal green version, or you only see half of the winter mode (for example, white tree tops but green bases,) you can clear your cache to have the updated map images show up.

This does not have anything to do with any events.

Link to blog post: http://blog.pokemonlegends.com/snowing-in-orden/

Why is everything so white and snowy?! Oh yes, it’s winter time in Orden. You may notice that some of the towns and routes have a fresh new dusting of snow. To make sure all maps show up in their proper winter attire you may need to clear your browser cache. This snow also means…

Snowman destroying contest!

…just kidding. Unfortunately we can’t destroy snowmen on the maps, but here’s the second best thing: A winter event! There is a Sableye elf on Route 4 that needs some help finding his companion Stantler, and if you find it he’s willing to take you to the North Pole! You may need to wait approximately 20 minutes from the post time of this blog entry for the NPCs to update on your end.

How are things going there? I don’t know, you can check for yourself!

When the normal storyline is completed you can also unlock a small 12 days challenge. How this works is that there are 12 helper NPCs gathered on one of the maps. They will each offer a small challenge, but you have to do them in order, and can only advance to the next challenge 24 hours after the previous challenge is completed. The prizes get slightly better as the days go on so be sure to check back.

This event will last for the rest of the month, ending on December 31, 2017. Have fun!

The current special-event limited time avatars are:
Snow Guy
Snow Gal
Snow Tot Girl
Snow Tot Boy
Abomasnow
Aurorus

Some of the event non-maps:
Vanillite
Snover
Pancham
Darumaka
Sigiliph
