  1. Discussion What are your Vortex goals?

    Win the seasonal leaderboard, maintain my collection of all Mystic events ever released in-game and eventually complete the Mystic Dex. Gotten a great start to the year and hope to build on that.
  2. Answered about sidequest

    It is in the Alola region sidequests around the 1800-battle mark. As soon as you fight your first Crabrawler you should be there. Check the main Sidequest page and it will confirm which route you're on. From there you can evolve Crabrawler to Crabominable.
  3. Answered Sableye - Fling Vs. Punishment.

    There's some backstory to this. Punishment originally did in fact have a power of 200 along with a few other moves (Self-Destruct, Reversal, Trump Card, and Explosion which was 250), but this made the game a little too easy so all of these moves were nerfed to have 120 power. Unfortunately, the 200+ power is still displayed for these moves, but they are 120 power. Originally, you could one-shot even Shiny/Metallic/Level 120 Pokemon with no Dark resistances using Punishment with a Dark-type, so this was pretty overpowered. Explosion was even worse and did 417 base damage without same-type attack bonus, with the Dark uniques it did 520. The closest thing to these moves now are V-Create and Prismatic Laser. V-Create is a Fire move with 180 Power and 90% accuracy that is only available to Rayquazas (Mega) and Victinis that were around before their respective movesets were changed to omit it. You can still acquire either with V-Create through auctions or trades where V-Create will come standard on certain Victinis. Victini's is much more powerful than Rayquaza (Mega)'s due to same-type attack bonus meaning it will do 450 base damage and 562 on a Dark unique. Being able to miss is a bit of a drawback, but it's certainly worth it when considering you still get an average of 162 power, unlike Guillotine, Horn Drill, Fissure and Sheer Cold which all have an actual power of 300 but only 30% accuracy for an average of 90 power. Prismatic Laser is a Psychic move with 160 power available only to Necrozma on which it comes standard. Since Necrozma is Psychic, it always gets same-type attack bonus, which makes Prismatic Laser do exactly 400 base damage and 500 with Dark Necrozma. Unfortunately, Necrozma is classed as an Ultra Beast and is only available on one map, making it the hardest Pokemon in the game to catch, especially as a unique. Unlike V-Create, Prismatic Laser is 100% accurate, making it significantly better for training.
  4. Anyone else find it kind of amazing how popular Pokemon Vortex is in Peru? Their 12 members on the Global Leaderboard is second only to the United States' 19, and Peru's 16 players on the seasonal leaderboard is more than any other country. There're some really good ambassadors for the game there that have gotten the word out and inculcated a sense of community among Peruvian players I imagine.

      Yeahh. In addition I would say that Pókemon Go is very popular, too. My brother still plays it.

      btw I'm a Peruvian player B| 

  5. Report another scammer

    It's very likely the same guy as StopSlagginWithBans and PoleDancer2018. His names all appear to be jokes based on the country he signs up the account with, and he always quickly jumps to the top of the seasonal leaderboard with an account signed up in Jan 2018. It's frustrating, I really hope the guy doesn't end the season with accounts on the leaderboard, though the staff have been doing a good job of taking care of him each time though and hopefully as long as they keep it up that won't happen.
  6. Thanks for offering but not generally looking for Normal events, if you get ahold of a Mystic Rotom (Cut), Mystic Rotom (Spin) or a Mystic Ultra Beast (except Mystic Kartana) I'd do it for that.
  7. Diancie, Groudon, Kyogre, Latios/Latias, Mewtwo, Rayquaza, etc are part of evolutionary chains. No thanks, most Mystic Ultra Beasts go for a standard 4.5 million Pokedollars on Pokebay whereas unique donations are around 30 million as standard when they show up.
  8. For a Mystic Gen 7 Legend I can trade a unique Legend that is part of an evolutionary chain or 2 unique Legends that aren't. Porygon forms I'm still a little bit confused about how many are awarded/how many unique ones there are/how long they'll be available but I am interested in them and for now could offer a donation of your choice for a Mystic Porygon (Hammer/Shield/Sword) if you happen to find one.
  9. Not yet or any Gen 7 stuff in general, just getting back into the game.
  10. For Shadow Deoxys (Speed) I am mainly looking for Mystic Arceus (Unknown) or possibly a Mystic Porygon (Hammer/Shield/Sword) if I can find out their numbers. For Mystic Guzzlord I could offer a smaller event though (any single event from Mystic Lunala and below) if you're interested.
  11. Greetings, here are the events I have for trade: Shadow Deoxys (Speed) Shadow Xerneas (Neutral) Dark Meloetta (Aria) Mystic Lunala Dark Solgaleo Metallic Solgaleo Mystic Diglett (Christmas) Dark Pikachu (Christmas) Metallic Pikachu (Christmas) Mystic Pikachu (Christmas) Dark Pikachu (Jedi) Dark Cubone (Vader) Metallic Cubone (Vader) Shiny Cubone (Vader) Dark Caterpie (Christmas) Rotom (Cut), (Frost), (Spin), and (Wash) Togepi (Halloween) Solgaleo Cosmog I am primarily looking for rare Mystics I don't have, including: Mystic Arceus (Unknown) Mystic Porygon (Hammer), (Shield), and (Sword) Mystic Rotom (Cut) and (Spin) Mystic Xerneas (Neutral) Mystic Aurorus Mystic Amaura Mystic Tyrunt Mystic Tyrantrum Mystic Ultra Beasts (including Mystic Necrozma but excluding Mystic Kartana) are also welcome for smaller events I can also trade unique Legends for Mystic Legends I don't have. Feel free to make whatever offer comes to mind, I'd rather hear any offer than no offer at all, that's why I made this thread. If I don't like the initial offer the worst that can happen is I will respectfully decline but hopefully we could negotiate a trade that is agreeable for all involved from there. Check my in-game account at: LankyYouth I look forward to hearing from you!
  12. Idea False Swipes

    Well the moves work pretty differently in Vortex in most cases, and anything beyond outright fixed damage is pretty scarce given the mechanics the developers have to work with. We may see new mechanics in v4, but it'd be unlikely. At least because damage is fixed and critical hits aren't enabled in wild battles, you can plan around killing them if you're familiar with how much damage your moves do. I use mainly Ultra Balls, that way you can catch most enemies (level 20 and below) without lowering their HP at all (it takes some training for the money but that's worth doing anyway for points and making your Pokemon stronger). You can also do sidequests to get Master Balls for Legends and map events. Doing this, killing enemy Pokemon isn't a concern (just skipping them :S). Good luck!
  13. Universal Legendary Easter Extravaganza

    My Shiny Reshiram for your Mystic Arceus?
  14. Idea Delayed Live Battles

    None of this is true. Any Shiny/Metallic Fire-resistant Pokemon can be OHKO'd no more than 6.25% of the time assuming equal levels. In the official Game Freak-developed games, base stats have much more bearing on attack outcomes than "the IV/EV concept", which provides fractional boosts. If a reduction of damage-to-HP ratios were necessary, it could be done completely independently of "the IV/EV concept" or even base stats by simply adjusting the damage multiplier (or the HP multiplier, as our Shiny Pokemon can in fact have up to 500 HP). Even as the game is now, Live Battles would be every bit as useful and fun as the enthusiasm to see how they'd play out and experiment with what dynamics exist for a competitive edge and/or fun. If optimal competitive play isn't optimally fun (as it seldom is in any game), Vortex provides plenty of room for self-imposed handicaps. For a player as seasoned as yourself to suggest that Live Battles would be "useless" based on the reasons you've provided is disappointing and you should know better. Crater's battle system was every bit as flawed as Vortex's and had Live Battles that were plenty useful to those that enjoyed them, and Vortex's battle system is a work in progress. I suspect the real reason Live Battles haven't been integrated in Vortex already is due to server limitations/other technical restraints. The feature was in fact planned for *v2*.

    Accepted thanks!
