Event details

Date is no longer an estimate and is confirmed for 15th March 2016.

 

UPDATE 1: (14/01/2016)

A counter has appeared on the dashboard. What is it counting? Why is it counting? What is its limit? What happens when it is reached?

All valid questions with answers yet to be determined, what we will tell you is it is a community mission. The number displays the same for everyone. As the game is generally played, you will notice it increasing.

Update 2: (15/01/2016)

The confusion, theories and speculations about the counter have left people scratching their heads.

Some people managed to correctly work out how to make the counter move, others refused to believe it. So what was it, you ask? It is going up for every completed trade. Well done to those of you who worked it out before it was announced.

Now, yes there are 7 digits, do not be put off by this feeling as though you have to get it to 9,999,999 or anything ridiculous. There are certain milestones to be met in order to trigger certain parts of the event - But more on that later. Want to know what Pokémon will be obtained through this event? More on that later. Looking for an easier way to trade? More on that later.

 

Update 3: (16/01/2016)

The biggest questions thus far of this event is what Pokémon will people be able to obtain through it. WELL, that's not today's hint, sorry :@_@:

Today is all about telling you what the milestones are that need to be reached and announce there is a new way to trade on it's way that will help you reach them a lot quicker - Providing you work together. After all, this is a community thing, this is not the time to fly solo.

Here are the milestones that need to be met to trigger certain parts of the event:

  1. 10,000 Trades - Vivillon (Pokeball)
  2. 20,000 Trades - ???
  3. 30,000 Trades - ???
  4. 40,000 Trades - ???
  5. 50,000 Trades - ???
  6. 60,000 Trades - ???
  7. 100,000 Trades - ???
  8. 200,000 Trades - ???
  9. 300,000 Trades - ???
  10. 400,000 Trades - ???
  11. 500,000 Trades - ???
  12. 1,000,000 Trades - ???

With that said, you're half way to the first milestone without the new trade method so that's great. I didn't expect it to go that high just yet. Well done to the rapid traders of the community.

 

Update 4: (18/01/2016)

Sorry about the time delay on update 4 but here it is - Probably what you have all `really` wanted to know, that's the Pokémon you may be able to win from this event. Well, it's not that simple, there are two, so here's one of them: VIVILLON (POKEBALL)!

Vivillon (Pokeball)

How do you get it? You ask. The event details themselves will be announced once it is released. For now you all just worry about getting those trades up.

As a side note: For those of you trying to bot trades to increase the counter, we can see you, the counter gets reset so you're only wasting your own time.

 

Update 5: (09/03/2016) - Final Update.

As you may have noticed, the trade counter also displays how many trades you, yourself have completed. This is because you will need a certain amount for each milestone in order to be able to take part in the next milestone and get that specific Pokémon. Here are your personal milestones and the Pokémon you can obtain by hitting them:

  1. 100 Trades - Vivillon (Pokeball)
  2. 200 Trades - Dark Vivillon (Pokeball)
  3. 300 Trades - Mystic Vivillon (Pokeball)
  4. 400 Trades - Metallic Vivillon (Pokeball)
  5. 500 Trades - Shadow Vivillon (Pokeball)
  6. 600 Trades - Shiny Vivillon (Pokeball)
  7. 700 Trades - Vivillon (Fancy)
  8. 800 Trades - Dark Vivillon (Fancy)
  9. 900 Trades - Mystic Vivillon (Fancy)
  10. 1000 Trades - Metallic Vivillon (Fancy)
  11. 1,100 Trades - Shadow Vivillon (Fancy)
  12. 1,200 Trades - Shiny Vivillon (Fancy)

Now I know what you're thinking. "1,200 trades? No thanks" Well it's not actually that hard because tomorrow we will be introducing Wonder Trade - A fun and less tasking way you trade where you can trade your unwanted Pokémon with a random person who is also trading an unwanted Pokémon. Didn't get something you want? Throw it into Wonder Trade again. And you can keep doing this over and over until you either get something you want or you run out of Pokémon to Wonder Trade.

By using Wonder Trade efficiently, you will be able to reach your personal milestones AND help the community reach the global milestones in no time.

For the event itself, you're going to need Scatterbugs. A lot of Scatterbugs.

Event starts tomorrow. All aboard the hype train. And I hope you all enjoy this event as I enjoyed planning/setting it up. It's definitely one of the more interesting ones I've come up with. Of course, I know this won't be to everyone's liking but that's fine. Events are optional to take part in. :^_^:

GET TRADIN' PEOPLE.

Im so excited thank you soo much Patrick for all your hard work you do for us Vortexer's we really appreciate it 

*Didn't know how to comment without quoting*

Wonder trade is a great concept and I can't begin to express my gratitude, but it needs improvement. When I dull out a legendary I expect one in return or at least something above lvl 40, but when I see my raikou being compared to a lvl 14 bellsprout I draw a blank. Now don't get me wrong, we all know bellsprouts are the epitome of all the other pokemon, a god among men if you will, but I would love to see Pokemon being traded on similar grounding instead of the most available. Still love it like a step son you never really understand, but you see his mother hurting so you try.

when you hover the mouse over the quote, you can see a movement icon at the left up corner, click it and then press Delete key.

The wonder trade has been created for get rid of pokemons that have no value for you, if you wonder trade ur shiny zygarde complete, you gonna get a pokemon that has no value for other random person, not an unique volcanion

Sorry if it wasn't intended but this was absolutely hilarious.

Anyway, I somewhat agree with what you said and I have been monitoring Wonder Trade closely since it was added (as I do with all new features) Now while I don't believe I want to step away from the concept of completely random trading, I've been throwing ideas around that will benefit from putting "better"? things into Wonder Trade.

However, making it so you're guaranteed a legendary for your own will not be possible due to the time lapse. It could be hours or days to match you with someone who is also Wonder Trading a legendary but I have a few planned tweaks to make it a more positive experience for players.

Is it over??

Not yet, no. There's another 10 hours or so.

So today is the Final day of the event ? @Patrick . If so , I guess you have other plans for the Shiny one ^_^ .

Yep, it's ending today. The Shiny Vivillon (Fancy) is available to people who have over 2,000 personal trades. The community milestone of 1 million is no longer needed.
