    Welcome to the next installment of special events held by Pokémon Vortex! Be prepared to go bankrupt as we kick off PokéBay's first event. Unlike exclusive auctions that are already held on PokéBay, these event auctions will start and end at random intervals and be much more frequent during the event period (June 17th 00:00 to June 27th 23:59 BST) Each auction held will be for a set amount of Burn Drive items which is a new item introduced for this event and used on a regular Genesect to change its form to Genesect (Blaze) To change the form of your Genesect, you will first need to win one of these quick-run auctions and head over to the event center where you will be able to use it on a Gensect you own (and is not in your team or up for trade) These auctions can pop up randomly and last anything from minutes to days so choose wisely when bidding if you're in a hurry or like to play the patient game to nab them cheaper. Event FAQ: Do I need an event ticket to unlock the event center? No, just press "Unlock" any time while the event is running and you will be able to take part. Why can't I see my Genesect in the event center? If you are sure one should be in the list, make sure it is not in your team, not up for trade and not up for auction. Only Genesect in your storage can be form changed. I won a Burn Drive auction but the event center says I have 0 - Where is it? Make sure you won the auction, it is very easy to make the mistake with last-second auction sniping where you believe you won but you actually didn't. Auction Watch List will help you here, add any auction you're bidding on to your watch list so you can easily come back to it when it ends. Are auctions the only way to get Burn Drives? Yes. Can I resell a Burn Drive that I won? No, once you've won a Burn Drive auction, the item is locked to your account. Obtainable Pokémon:

    Welcome to the next installment of Pokémon Vortex's special events! For this event, you will need all your strength and patience to battle through as many trainer battles as you can. This means clan battles or regular computer controlled battles against another player. Each battle you complete and win will have the chance to drop a special event item; the Fist Plate which will allow you to change the form of your Normal type Arceus to Fighting type Arceus in the event center. There isn't a minute to waste, this event won't be around forever! Get battling, trainers! Event Pokémon Obtainable:

    The entire page is coming along really nicely and it's encouraging me to stock up on some avatars. I think a search function would be nice to have as it'd easily let us search for an avatar to see if we have one or not rather than scrolling down and remembering their location by Pokedex number. Right now we can't use Control/Command+F to search either since avatars don't have their names underneath them. A search bar (like one that exists in the Pokedex) would keep the page from becoming busy with names. I know it's in beta, just something that popped up in my mind

    It would be nice as a reminder to have a notification for things you sell. The only way you really know if you sold something is to look in the "Sold" tab in Pokebay. With a notification, it will remind you what you sold, and will give a kind of nice feeling after selling something!

    I don't like this event. This is literally the rich get richer because mid tier and beginner players don't have a chance at winning.

    Especially when quickly clicking through battles, I usually only notice after a few turns why I wasn't dealing damage (I was confused).

    Starting November 1st 2018, the Pokémon contents of Mystery Boxes will be changed monthly to resolve two issues within Pokémon Vortex's trade and auction economy. The first issue being that some old event Pokémon are impossible to obtain due to very low numbers of them existing. The second issue is that the current Mystery Box Pokémon drop of Rotom forms are too high and rapidly lose value as more boxes are obtained and opened. SO, the change, effective immediately will be that old event Pokémon (but not seasonal event Pokémon such as Halloween or Christmas) will be rotated through Mystery Boxes monthly starting off with November's Mystery Box Pokémon - Volcanion This Pokémon will be rotated out of Mystery Boxes on December 1st 2018 and so on, on monthly intervals. Here is a list of the following changes through to the end of September 2019: November 1st 2018 - November 30th 2018 December 1st 2018 - December 31st 2018 January 1st 2019 - January 31st 2019 February 1st 2019 - February 28th 2019 March 1st 2019 - March 31st 2019 April 1st 2019 - April 30th 2019 May 1st 2019 - May 31st 2019 June 1st 2019 - June 30th 2019 As of June 1st 2019, the avatar pool of Mystery Boxes will no longer be exclusively "Premium Avatars". Instead, it will have the chance to drop every single avatar except those reserved for special occasions such as Exclusive Auctions. July 1st 2019 - July 31st 2019 August 1st 2019 - August 31st 2019 September 1st 2019 - September 30th 2019 Hopefully these continued changes monthly will make these Pokémon more widely available over time.

    Sadly there are a lot of people who like to cause abuse in the Discord chat, due to this, you'll need to verify your account with a phone number.

    I suppose so, if you find a quick/easy opponent. With a good team you can beat anything, so it's almost never a problem with that.

    I believe it was because it wasn't used by that many people, and because it caused some server problems from time to time.

    Hey There! Firstly, The New Update is really Awesome! and the response is absolutely overwhelming so Kudos with that!! Not being ungrateful for anything BUT I was talking to many People and Most of us aren't really happy with The Timer removed. Lemme Address the 2 Major Issues- Auctions: Many of us wait for the final 10 seconds to bid on an auction as it increases our chances to win it but with the timer being removed we don't even have a rough approximate of when to bid... Specially, if you're on Phone. So that's a major drawback for all the Snippers out there. Exp Grinding: We are all acquainted with the fact that there's a cooldown of 10 seconds between trainer battles. Many of us can even train 8 sec/battle so that's where things get tough... It's difficult keeping a count of 10 seconds in your mind while constantly grinding so there's another con of removing the in-game timer. There are other minor issues like The Game Follows GMT still, With the Timer gone we don't know when will the Seasonals exactly end, another same issue is with the Daily Login Calendar. Once again, Thanks for the Amazing v.4.2 update, it's really awesome!

    Guide for Perfect Exp. Before you guys say that there are already posts like this, please read this: I am aware that there is already a similar topic in the Vortex Wiki, but it did not explain how to even out pokemon with exp not ending with 0 or 5. The following charts only apply for level 100 Pokemon. Hope this helps! Training Accounts (full teams of 6) Number of Your Pokemon in Battle Exp Gained 1 3,000 2 1,500 3 1,000 4 750 5 600 6 500 Gym Leaders Kanto Gym Leader Number of Your Pokemon in Battle Exp Gained Brock 1 140 2 70 Misty 1 325 2 163 3 108 Lt. Surge 1 600 2 300 3 200 4 150 Odd Exp. If your pokemon has an odd last digit of its exp (with an exception of 5), here is one way to make it 0 or 5: -Use 5 of your own pokemon to battle a gym with 5 pokemon. The easiest gyms with 5 pokemon are the Saffron City Gym or Fuchsia City Gym. They will give you 259 exp. -Battle Misty with 2 or 3 pokemon. This is the easiest way to even out odd exp. (see the chart for the exact exp gained) Please PM me if you notice an inaccurate datum

    Before you go about posting a new trade topic, be aware of the following rules: -All Global Rules Apply. -The creator or acquaintances (say if the topic is a joint trade thread) may bump the trade thread every two days. -You cannot create a new trade thread until your previous one is at least 2 weeks old. -You must have at least 6 Pokemon posted for trade. (No just posting "check my IGN") -No Begging someone for a trade. -No selling accounts at all. -If someone disagrees with your trade, simply move on. Do not try to start a fight or begin to flame/harass. Good Example: Hi Everyone! Welcome to my Trade Thread! Here are my rules and rates: <Yes you can have your own rules for your topic. Anything not fitting into the criteria of previous rules will result in deletion of that rule or worse, deletion of the thread> <Rates will go here and are determined by the topic creator and the Vortex Community> This is what I have for Trade: Normal Pokemon x3 Unique Pokemon x2 x2 Normal Legendaries x3 Unique Legendaries x2 Bad Example: hi every1 welcome 2 my trading thred rulz: -no noob offers, only shiny leggies -i will report any1 who down my ratz -my shinies 4 ur 12 metallics, bcuz i lik them more if u want 2 see what i hav, check my IGN: snibbidysnabs make sure 2 give +1rep 2 my thread lol Trading Tips -Try to keep your thread organized and make your rules and rates clear to all users. -Don't go crazy with fonts. -If you have a lot of spare pokemon you would like to trade, DO NOT post all 80 pk tags (Lags up the forum). Instead of pk tags, try just using text of the pokemon you're trading. -If you have a text list of pokemon, but it is extremely long, try including in the list somewhere "Use Control + F to find what you're looking for". -You can link your IGN in your thread, but you still have to have at least 6 pokemon posted. -Reply coherently. Coherently meaning no emoticons every single reply and no crazy font or colored text. -Experience Trading is determined by the user. Make sure you set rates on what kind of pokemon is worth what. ("Normal Pokemon are equal to x exp. Unique Pokemon are equal to x exp." etc) -Rates can be trivial and are determined by the user, but keep in mind that All Normal Pokemon have the same encounter rate, Normal Legendaries have the same encounter rate, and all Unique Pokemon have the same encounter rate, and all Unique Legendaries have the same encounter rate. If you feel as if you are being cheated or the rates are unfair, do not propose the trade. Example of Same Encounter Rates: and Encounter Rates are the same. and Encounter Rates are different. and Encounter Rates are the same. and Encounter Rates are the same. and Encounter Rates are the same. and Encounter Rates are different. and Encounter Rates are the same. and Encounter Rates are the same. Trading Lingo There are a lot of terms that get thrown around in trading threads. Here are a few: IGN - In game name, meaning the one posting's account. UFT - Up for trade, meaning whatever the poster is offering. Unique(s) - Unique is any pokemon that isn't a normal, so in this case Metallic, Shiny, Dark, Mystic, Shadow. Leggy/Leggies - Crude abbreviation of "Legendary Pokemon". EXP - You know, Experience. Have fun!
