Pokemon spawn on server time?

Post by benguy2211 » Mon Feb 11, 2019 1:53 pm

What is this post about:
I was playing some old pokemon games and found there are some areas where some pokemon spawn on certian days of the week at certain time. I think this game should have it so you can encounter a random pokemon on a certain day of the week within a few hours time frame. It doesn't matter what pokemon so long as this is added.

Reason:
It will be fun and give people something to do on that certain day.

PL has its own way on that stuff. There are actually some Pokemon that can only be encountered specifically during only day or night. And day and night change according to server time. So there you go.

For what you're suggesting, I don't think the system has an algorithm yet for anything to do weekly. And even if it is made possible, there would be even more players complaining about the limited period availability of those.

This is an idea that is related to the old events that PL used to have. These swarm periods had Pokemon that appeared on the map for a limited amount of time on certain days and people had to rush and obtain them before it disappeared. As fun as it sounds in theory it was not fun in execution because a lot of people were unable to be online at certain days or certain hours (even though the same batches were repeated several times across different days and hours). There were massive complaints about it and so swarms were discontinued in favor of long-running events. It also absolutely mattered what kind of Pokemon it was because people don't care about Pokemon they can get easily or one that exists elsewhere.

These types of things also wear out in novelty over time. The Task Master provides things for people to do each day but it's not like anyone is excited about it anymore. Pokemon obtained from limited times are also usually mass-bred after. So suggestion denied.
