  1. So I had an idea I wanted to share because it seemed alright in theory.. I was thinking about how it'd be cool if we had a chance to incorporate and show off some art in-game. For example: - being able to add a small banner or picture into our profile bios - somewhere on the site to display custom digital art done by ourselves or commissioned by others of our pokemon. (maybe a tab in our profile, or a link when we bring up a pokemon or our card in bot commands on Discord) - if it gained popularity, an official pokemon art contest of some sort I've seen sites in the past that have allowed users to buy art commissions from others with in-game currency that have worked really well, where good quality art is a real hot commodity and makes accounts deemed "better". (can direct you there if you wanna check it out). People could offer their events or PD in exchange for nice profile banners, drawings of their favourite pokes, etc. I feel like it would diversify our community and bring in a new artsy audience if it were given enough significance and attention in the game. It would also be a nice little hobby that would give people something other to do than trading to acquire events/wealth in Vortex if their banners and pokemon art are sought after. We've got the forums here for people to put up "stalls", and if it were linked to us in bot commands I'm sure it'd be fun looking at great art and having a laugh at some silly stuff people come up with as well. Just thought I'd share as it could definitely attract a whole different bunch of Vortex players and give people a chance at getting pokemon/money in-game without dealing with the headache of trading and the whole "skemming" culture, which detracts from the enjoyment for some.
  2. "I'm looking for a way to make experience you did not train yourself not as appealing or valuable." Just to preface I'm a newer player who does not trade for exp. It'd be nice to not negatively affect people who do trade for exp too greatly as I'm sure they spend some real money and keep our DP economy in check. But, I also feel like it would be nice to reward the efforts of people who go on vortex and train pokemon for themselves too. My idea is to create a separate statistic for self-trained exp and have it added to the global trainers formula, and prominently displayed on their profile to show off. (and if you wanted to take it even further, to the poke's profiles as well). Obviously it can't be backdated, but the profile stat could be implemented and start at 0 from the day it is to give everyone a fair start. People like showing off stats and I feel people would like to train a lot to get the "self trained exp" on their profile high. If it were added to the formula for global top trainer, it could be worth (example) 1.5% more points than exp that was traded to them. If the exp leaves the account, it changes to traded exp in terms of global points. So, we don't kill exp trades and trainers. We also reward people who train for themselves and give a fair chance at progressing through the ranks via training yourself and not trading. We can also see how much a person has trained right there on their profile - an added bonus being that people will know who to trust more easily in terms of legitimacy. Hypothetically I'd be more comfortable dealing with a trainer who has trained a lot, rather than somebody who has possibly been banned recently and doesn't have much self-trained exp displayed on their profile.
  3. I agree. People who barely play the game (catching,battling) and acquire exp are ranked way higher than people who grind battles and have impressive unique count and it seems unbalanced.

    Both Seasonal Porygon forms

    I was just thinking it'd be cool to be able to see what seasonal month the shield/hammer/sword porygons were obtained on their profile. Sort of like the "first edition" badge that event pokes have.
