    We're aware, yeah. We'll try to manage it for the next major update. It requires a significant change to how battle data is tracked. The duration is 1 hour. Shiny Charms are available in a different box, although at a very low rate. No

    About BP Gaining (OU Unranked)

    There is a hidden "MMR" for Unranked matchmaking, which is separate from Ranked. Your friend's unranked MMR is so low that he has a negative bonus.

    Kill Horde instantly Feature

    It's not unconsidered, it just probably requires a major technical change to allow for concurrent damage application. I'll get around to the request later. Not sure why there's so much speculation of perceived value of time spent watching HP bars go down in this topic. I don't consider it a motivator for this change; this gameplay is already limited by item-based resources, and the correct way to balance horde grinding is by tweaking availability of items which allow encountering them instantly (i.e. Sweet Scent/Ether-like item availability/resource requirements).
  6. I'm not convinced that the game modes we make for holidays are good enough to run for more than 10 days. They're usually shallow and repetitive, and I imagine they get old quickly once the meta is discovered. This is due to the way we use events as "feature incubators", where we test experimental designs to see how fun they are, or how our development cycles need to change. We don't want them to overstay their welcome, nor do we really want to babysit the events as they run to make sure they stay "fresh" throughout their entire duration. That's why they're usually so short. Contrary to what my lighthearted forums posts may tell you, we're not actually having fun by delaying everything until the last minute, and it is immensely stressful for everyone involved. The Christmas 2018 event was completed 30 minutes before we started building releases for it, and the level of polish should make it obvious how rushed it was. Halloween was similar, due to the huge amount of unforeseen issues caused by porting events to Unova. This isn't really anyone's fault; the entire game basically got a rewrite for Gen 5 to be possible, and events aren't really cared about until we actually have to do them. It was in a similar situation for release, to where we were still tweaking stuff hours before its release. So, if we're dropping an event on the same day as the holiday, it's because we made a mistake, and it took too long to make, for whatever reason. Sometimes we get too ambitious, sometimes things go wrong, but regardless, it's not intentional. johto confirmed

    The creative writing section isn't for team drama or shit flinging between players.


    Please resolve your drama somewhere else, so we don't have to deal with it. Thanks."


    sounds like you should be bringing back round table instead

    Changelog: 25/12/2018

    Since the game mode is new and does not play like anything else in-game, here are some developer's tips: Scoring There is a minimum amount of "score" which is required before rewards will be paid out. Score is increased for every Big Robot Part you collect, and for every wave you clear. The requirements to complete a wave will increase as waves are cleared. After you clear some waves, it will be given an exponential bonus. Players The game mode is best played with 4 players, with 2 squads of 2 players. Willingness to communicate with each other and coordinate your actions will significantly impact your team's viability. All players share a pool of 5 lives in which they can die. If your link faints 5 times, the next person to faint will be kicked from the link and their game will end Building your team Classes of Elfbots are meant to work together. Talk with your teammates to decide what is best, and decide at the beginning of the mission. While in your starting area, your Elfbot can be changed an infinite amount of times. Use this to search for a build complimentary to your team. If you leave your starting area, you may only change your Elfbot once more. Afterwards, you are locked for the rest of the mission. If you change your Elfbot type, you will fully heal Enemies The aggro mechanics are similar to an action role playing game: Whoever aggros the enemy will bring in their closest ally to fight with them, if they are within range. It is recommended you stay close together, and share the burden of damage. Presents Presents will respawn every 2 completed waves, in the same spots Presents come in 4 types: Healing (Green) These will fully heal your team, including status and PP Stat Up (Red) These will increase the EV stats of every member of your link Big Robot Part (Pink) Collect these, and bring them back to your base Held Items (Blue) Held items are random. I recommend that you talk to your party and see who needs what item Good luck.

    So No Christmas Event This Year?

    Yeah, it's a co-op thing. The mechanics are simpler though, we ended up yeeting the north pole stuff since not a lot of people really liked it
