  3. Event pushed back a few days while we continue work on bug fixes and features. Thanks for understanding

  4. We're aware of an issue with iOS which is preventing multiple users on their local network from connecting simultaneously. It will be resolved in the next game update. Thanks for your report
  5. Changelog: 13/06/2022 Features The GTL and PC now allow searching by Shiny/Secret Shiny The last used item is now automatically navigated to in the in-battle item use UI Desktop: The item use UI in-battle can now be double clicked to use the item Added an "Extra Large" chat buffer size option Balancing Scripted encounters (NPCs which occur during the storyline) for Volcarona, Musharna, Spiritomb, Rotom, Kecleon, Snorlax, and Sudowoodo now use normalized IVs (15/15/15/15/15/15), neutral natures, and cannot be shiny Bug Fixes macOS: Fixed an issue where the client could crash if resizing, changing window position, or becoming fullscreen A new macOS Launcher update has been deployed to fix this issue. Please visit PokeMMO - macOS Downloads to download the latest version (v46) Fixed Secret Shiny preview in the Breeding UI Fixed Zen Mode base stats / typing alterations after transforming Fixed various positioning issues with icons Fixed there being a prompt for Shininess when running away from a non-Shiny Ditto which was transformed into a Shiny Fixed multiple Sweet Scent prompts being able to be shown at the same time Fixed Randoms generating incorrect levels for Wormadam/Rotom alternate forms Rock Smash TMs have been removed from Marts Fixed Wish / Future Sight not failing when the battle slot they were targeting had nothing in it Fixed the Mail icon in the HUD displaying out of battle ability tooltips in some cases Fixed various issues with move learning which would result in players being prompted multiple times for the same move, or invalid moves (if the target already knew them) Fixed Cell Battery / Absorb Bulb activating from recoil moves (e.g. Wild Charge) Fixed Dig being unable to be written over by HMs Fixed an issue with Rotation Battles where the resulting team ordering from Team Preview would not be as expected Fixed an issue with Rotation Battles where abilities which activated upon swap in (e.g. Drizzle) would not be triggered correctly Fixed instance clear counts / cooldown information not displaying correctly if switching characters to one which didn't have any history Fixed hordes being able to damage themselves through AoE moves (e.g. Surf)
  6. No, we did not create our own randomness algorithms for the game, and your activity cannot affect other players' RNG rolls. For shiny rates (and any other important RNG calls) we use cryptographic RNG via Java's SecureRandom engine. Basically: If it is good enough for government encryption keys, it's good enough for you and your shiny randomness. Sometimes, interesting things happen which players can visualize patterns in, but they don't actually exist.

  9. Shiny Charm / Donator Status modifications only affect the base rate, so it would be 1/27000 -> 1/16
  10. Yes Yes No It takes the place of the normal shiny particle, so you can't have both
  11. This is Part 1 of PokeMMO's 10th Anniversary 3-patch series. Click here to see what released in Part 2! Features PokeMMO for iOS PokeMMO is now available for iOS 11+ as a 3rd-party IPA package 3rd-party applications on iOS require sideloading for functionality. Please visit this link for installation instructions via Altstore.io 中国用户,请访问此链接 This client is currently in Beta. Several issues are currently known and are being worked on: iOS keyboard changing may be slightly delayed iOS "Display Zoom" mode does not always render correctly Various audio issues are currently present. These may include audio stopping for no apparent reason, and audio being delayed For additional issues, please report them to https://support.pokemmo.eu/ Rotation Battles "Rotation Battles are similar to Triple Battles in that three party members in each team are sent onto each side. However, they are sent out onto a circular platform. The platform can be rotated in either direction without wasting a turn. Strategy revolves around predicting which party member the opponent will select and switching to the appropriate counter on the player's side."

New moves are summarized below: Randoms has been updated to include Generation 4 species Some Limited addons now have animated profile sprites Phenomena may now occur more frequently Phenomena and Swarms now last slightly longer when spawned Darmanitan Statues now occasionally reappear in Desert Resort of Unova Honey Trees now allow multiple layers of Honey to be applied, to attract more foes at a time Using Sweet Scent without enough PP will now prompt to replenish it with an available item (Leppa/Ether/etc.) Unova now includes Rock Smash encounters Unova now has a Rock Smash HM, available where the previous TM was distributed.

      will the vanity be released in part 2?

  13. This game is not structured in a way where we can divvy out work into hyperspecific chunks. All of the developers here wear all the hats they can, because that's what the project has needed up until this point. It allows us to run on a very lean team which is very good at producing results. If we were looking to invest into more software developers for the game, I'd guess it'd take around a year to train someone to fully understand the project like I do. It's pretty big, at over a million lines of code and 40 subprojects atm. And we're kind of picky, in that if we're looking to hire someone to work on the actual product, we don't want a revolving door of useless year 1 CS students touching the codebase with their grubby messy hands. If we did find someone who's both competent and underemployed, I'm pretty sure it'd cost at least $100 if we want them to show up every day. So yeah, it's pretty expensive. I'm sure it does. It annoys me too, I'm tired of working on this patch. But throwing more people at the problem doesn't actually solve this particular situation. When it comes to development, usually goals and their problems can be categorized in one of two ways: A goal with an objectively correct solution. Like: "Make the skills work like they do in X game." "Make the game run on iOS." "Make an animation which does X" A goal which is open ended. A vague idea, like "Make an event which commemorates our 10th anniversary, somehow." For #1, you can absolutely throw more cooks into your kitchen to get the thing done. It's easy, there's a correct way for things to occur, and if you don't do it that way, you failed to do the thing. We do occasionally contract people for this type of work, especially if it falls out of our areas of expertise. For #2 though, we have found that more cooks does not make the creative process better. They can do more things at once, provided that their problems can be categorized as #1, but that's not really the issue when it comes to events. The bottleneck is designing and iterating on whatever mechanics we come up with, and that role is restricted to 1 or 2 (extremely experienced) people out of necessity. Otherwise you get the problem of too many cooks in a kitchen all trying to make the same pot of soup, and nobody is happy with how it tastes. I've yet to find a way to improve that, so the real lesson is what we came up with 10 years ago, and what I should have done in the first place- "just don't give ETAs lol"
  14. 2 months ago, a few of our more attentive players noticed that March 29th 2022 would be the 10th anniversary of the forums coming online. As a brief history lesson for everyone, the first public test of the game started a few weeks later in April 2012, then the "alpha" (now known as PokeMMO Epsilon™) was released in June 2012. While originally we were just planning on a large content update to commemorate the date, maybe throw in some massive tournament or something, we had the brilliant idea to instead make a one-time event outside of what we call "event season"- the period of Halloween/Christmas/Chinese New Year where we normally don't permit large, breaking changes so as to not interrupt the events by leaving you with an unplayable video game. "Get hyped" we said, because it'd be good. Then, despite our better judgment, we doubled down by not only giving ourselves a deadline to come up with something and get it out, but a public deadline. Several in fact, and we've managed to blow all of them in a fantastic fashion. Today marks the date of our 4th deadline being missed, and I'm happy to announce that we're commemorating this feat of project logistics by releasing the Torch & Pitchfork Seasonal items. These items will be available until the next update releases. We expect that to be Soon™ish, probably around Two Weeks™, but we're giving ourselves some leeway so we don't need to make more announcements about announcements. When we get there, this will also be an unusual update process. We'll be breaking it into a 3 part series: The major, fragile changes will occur before the event. This will be our launch of the open beta iOS client, general changes like moveset updates, bug fixes, and a large suite of scripting changes to help us support future regions. A few days later, after we're sure that the game's not completely busted, the event will start. Finally, after the event ends, a new permanent feature will launch. We'll keep that one a surprise for now. Until then, See you Soon™!
  15. If I were a pedantic man, I'd tell you the oldest characters on the server were created 20/06/2012 and that we're actually way ahead of schedule I hope you like playing rotation battles, because they were a pain in the ass to write. (I do not expect you to like rotation battles.) If I have time, sure. The former's trivial, the latter not so much
  16. Normally I wouldn't try to estimate release times, but for this one, I don't think it's acceptable to say "We don't know when." Several I'd say it has a healthy mix of features for both types of players at the moment
  17. We've delayed the event a bit more so we can introduce some new permanent features alongside it. At the moment, we're tentatively planning for sometime around the 10th of May (2 Weeks™). Thanks
  18. Will be fixed next update. Thanks for your report
  19. It'll be a little more than that, thankfully
  20. It dismays me that some people think this announcement was a joke because of the graphics design and the date of the announcement. I have replaced it with a more professional graphic to help accentuate its seriousness.
  21. ok, I'll make rotation battles too. I know a lot of people have been waiting for those
  22. thanks I put a lot of work into it
