Fall of the Summer

Post by PrincessPhoenix » Sat Oct 07, 2017 10:46 pm

What is this? A Summer event?
No, it's after summer.
Halloween?
Nope, not Halloween yet.
So.. autumn!?
Yeah, that's probably it!

With the release of the legendary storyline a while back people have been eagerly awaiting a method to mass hoard Rebirth Crystals, which only occurs during events. But summer has already passed and we still wanted an event, so why not celebrate the annual migration of creatures that begins for both the beginning (or end of) what is the wintry season? We thought about that too but the NPCs of Orden weren't so cooperative... we had to make a deal with them if we were going to rent their properties for a celebration of any kind.

As such, anyone who wants to join in on the crystal gathering festivities at the end must first help out a rancher in the Eastbourne Farmlands. You can register to volunteer your time at this worker who is inspecting logs on the road:

The rest of the event will last for 2 weeks, ending on October 21, 2017!

Special thanks to GrannyMaths for the event/post name

The Search for the Shiny Magikarps

Post by PrincessPhoenix » Mon Oct 09, 2017 4:05 am

An NPC with white hair and a blue robe has appeared on Magikarp Island in search of an originally owned shiny Magikarp. If you give one to her, she will offer you one of the Hoenn starter Pokemon of your choice- either Treecko, Torchic or Mudkip!

This NPC is in celebration of a certain someone's birthday so it will only be around for 48 hours- it will leave at the end of October 11, 2017 when the server time reaches 0:00:00 marking the next day.

If you were on Magikarp Island at the time of this NPC's release, please allow approximately 20 minutes for the map NPCs to update on your end.

To the trainers who liked adventures

Post by PrincessPhoenix » Sun Oct 15, 2017 11:40 pm

A rare visitor has appeared in Strongwater Town East, who looks for well-seasoned travelers to aid in a memory of their long journey. His request is simple; but it's the not the Pokemon... it's the message that counts. He will be visiting for approximately 48 hours, leaving at the end of Server time October 17!

Please allow up to approximately 20 mins from the time of this post for the NPCs on the map to update on your end.




Happy Birthday Kyro!

Trick or Treat

Post by PrincessPhoenix » Mon Oct 30, 2017 7:15 am

Happy Halloween, here’s a nice festive holiday at the wonderful and relaxing Camp SplatterRock! ..wait what? It’s not wonderful? And it’s under investigation for suspicious activities and disappearances? Looks like it’s just the place for us!

The event begins in the Pokemon Center of Oldpine Town, where two investigators are in need of a brave and adventurous trainer to help them as a victim-er... special assistant for a sudden and urgent case, which will whisk you off to the infamous Camp SplatterRock. What happens next? No spoilers from me!
Image Well, maybe one or two for the forum. To prevent confusion and rumors about the amount of interesting Pokemon in this event, there are 6 non-maps for this event in total:
  • Phantump
  • Golett
  • Frillish
  • Inkay
  • Litwick
  • Drifloon
There are also a handful of special-event avatars that are available for a limited time, including the Pika-plushies.

This event will run for 2 weeks, ending on November 12, 2017. Have fun!

Forum version was updated

Post by PrincessPhoenix » Fri Jan 19, 2018 7:29 pm

The forum version was recently upgraded to a newer one, and in the process the original customized layout didn't seem to survive the journey. The developers did make a backup of the forum before it was upgraded and they were going to see if they can extract the layout from there and apply it to this version when they have the time, but until they are successful it's back to the default.

Later edit: If any of you were wondering about the post counts, when the forum version was updated the visible post count display for your profile was set back to 0. Synchronizing the post counts again set it to 0 as well so all visible post counts are only incremented from that day forward.Your actual posts are NOT deleted in any way and you can re-search them all by clicking on your profile and selecting "search user's posts".

Valentines Event

Post by PrincessPhoenix » Mon Feb 05, 2018 10:12 pm

Link to blog post here: http://blog.pokemonlegends.com/valentines-day-event/

The Valentines day event is now here and you too can participate in the festival of love and item hoarding! Unfortunately some shady characters have taken this too far and begun smuggling in Pokemon for Valentines profits.

An officer in the Oldpine Police station is looking for strong trainers who can help assist them in cracking down those who are taking illegal advantage of the Valentines rush. If you help him, who knows, you may befriend some of the lovely Pokemon for yourself!

Dedicated Auctions Page

Post by PrincessPhoenix » Sun Feb 25, 2018 6:31 am

Link to blog entry here: http://blog.pokemonlegends.com/dedicated-auctions-page/

Courtesy of Sharks12, there is now a page in game that is dedicated to auctions! Now you can run a proper auction with bidding and auto-rewarding of the winning bid to cut out the hassle of fake auctions, fake bids or trying to organize everything in the trades channel.

You can put up to 3 Pokemon for auction at a time and set each auction to last from a minimum of 15 minutes to a maximum of 72 hours.

Some things to note about auctions:
  1. Once you put up a Pokemon for auction, you can only cancel it if no one bid on it yet. If someone bids the auction will remain until the time expires.
  2. Once you place a bid, you can’t withdraw it. Your bid money will be returned to you if the auction is over and you didn’t win the auction, so please only bid on Pokemon you are serious about winning.
  3. The auction time is set in decimals, so 15 minutes would be 0.25, 30 minutes is 0.5 etc.
Have fun, and thanks Sharks12!

Re: General Updates/Changelogs

Post by sharks12 » Sun Mar 04, 2018 8:16 am

Minor Updates:
  • Under Auction search, special field should now work for "Normal" type Pokemon.
  • The reward for posting on forum has been removed after witnessing abuse of the feature.
Please note that we highly recommend that you use the dedicated Auctions page for auctioning your Pokemon. If you participate in Auctions that are done without using the page, there's a good chance that the Staff won't help.

  • Country Chat - A new chat designed to only show messages from users from your country. Introducing it has caused some bugs with the other chats, most notably regarding the Chrome Extension by Sharks12. It is not currently working for all users, as assigning countries to users takes time, but this work is progressing. It's likely that newer players will see this working before older players.
  • Capture Rate - The capture rate formula has been updated to better reflect that in the original games. Status conditions such as FREEZE and SLEEP have been given the correct modifiers, whereas previously they were incorrectly too high. This does mean users may experience a lower success rate when using status conditions to help capture Pokemon.

FB login is down/not working for now.

Post by PrincessPhoenix » Fri Aug 31, 2018 6:48 pm

Since this affects many there should be some sort of announcement about it.

The facebook login version for the game is currently down, and the devs are looking into it, although I'm not sure when they would resolve it. They seem to have temp removed the fb login from the homepage for now until it is resolved.

The game did have a backup for if this happens- all users who registered through fb were sent an email verification at the time of registering that contained a pre-generated password that you can use on the main login page without connecting directly to fb.

You can read more about the alternate login in this nice guide that saarloos1991 made:
